My Travel Essentials

I'd never really say I am a nervous flyer, but like a lot of people out there, there are aspects of traveling that make me feel a variety of negative emotions. I hate struggling with too many bags, standing in long security lines, stale recycled air, freezing cold and uncomfortable airplanes, germs! UGH.

That being said, today I'm sharing with you some of my travel essentials that make the travel experience just a bit more bearable. To me, a good flight is all about being as comfortable as possible, avoiding the germs, and keeping things organized.


First things first, a good carry on makes a world of difference. I've had this one for years after finding it at Winners. I love how versatile it is. The bag has tons of storage, pockets for all of my electronics, and can either be carried or rolled. Airports now are so huge that carrying a bag can be a daunting task. I'd rather avoid sweating like crazy as I walk between terminals, thanks. I can easily pop out the handle and roll on, sweat free.

Now, let's get into what's inside the bag.


I'm one of those travelers that likes a printed copy of my boarding pass. But sometimes between the hustle of security and running between gates, you've stuffed it into your bag somewhere and now you're about to board your plane but you can't find it and you start to panic. Woah. Stressful. This wallet keeps everything perfectly contained and even has spots for your passport, important documents, and currency. (get it here)


Having a few makeup bits can make a long haul flight suddenly feel luxurious. I like to keep a few things contained in one makeup bag so I know exactly where something is when I need it. Face spray, sanitizer, lip balm, hand lotion, powder foundation, concealer, and blotting papers are just a few of the beauty essentials I keep with me. (get it here)


Two things that happen on a long flight: dry skin and exposure to a bunch of germs. This wellness spray is perfect to combat both of these issues. It's full of wonderful essential oils that will hyrdate your skin as well as fight germs and keep your immune system strong. (get it here)
