Travel Essentials!!!

I know that as we get closer to the holidays, some of you may be starting to think about going home for the holidays maybe, or planning a trip during your break from school. I figured that since I was packing anyway for my trip to Philadelphia (less than a week to go now!!) I would show you guys some of the things I like to travel with, and maybe give you guys some ideas :)

I like using my Coach Nylon Weekender Tote (which I got from Buffalo Exchange- you'll be surprised what you can find thrifting!) for travel because it is super durable and just a great size for a carry on- and also comes with an attachable makeup pouch as well which saves me room in my luggage! Now on to the exciting part- what goes in!

Beanie- Beanies are amazing to have on planes, not only because they can keep your head warm, but also because if you fall asleep on the plane, you can use it to cover your bedhead when you get off!! I really like this maroon one because my mom physically knitted it for me as a gift :)

Scarf- Kind of the same concept as a beanie in terms of warmth and comfort, and definitely not necessary if you're flying somewhere warm, but since I'm flying into the snow and I'm coming from southern California, I'm not opposed to another layer getting off the plane. I got this plaid one from Forever 21 and unfolded, it's large enough to act as a mini-blanket/throw as well!

Socks- One of the most under-rated necessities ever!!! If you're wearing slip-ons to get through security (which I'd definitely recommend!) socks in your bag will be a godsend on the air conditioned plane. I got these from Happy Socks!

Hand cream- High altitudes and extreme air-conditioning can be super-drying- so I like having a thicker hand cream to keep my hands moisturized! This one is from the be Delactable line from cakebeauty- the scent is strawberries and cream and it smells just like strawberry yogurt :)

Lip balm- Again, got to keep those chapped lips at bay!! I'll be bringing the Nivea lip butter in Raspberry Rose kiss, which is one of my all time favorites :)

Toner Water- This one might be a little unconventional, but I like to bring toner water because 1) it helps revitalize your face after a long flight, and 2) it can help to wake you up if you have a layover as well :) I got this one from Lush (Breath of Fresh Air) and the cool thing about Lush products is that most of their products are available in travel size!

Book-  Sometimes you can be stuck in an airport for absolute ages- like if your flight is delayed. It's always nice to have something on hand to read and keep yourself occupied! I'll be starting One Plus One by Jojo Meyes, which has gotten really stellar reviews, so I'm excited!

Candy/ Snacks- Self- explanatory, airport food can be ridiculously overpriced! I always like to have candy because I need the sugar boost.

Headphones- Let's be real- no one was going to go on a trip without these, am I right?

Sorry for the longer post, I always like to be sure I've got everything I need for a flight!! What are some of your travel essentials? Let me know :)

Stay beautiful!!

  2. I love 'essentials' posts as I love seeing what others can't do with out. My essentials would be a book, hand cream, face moisturiser, water, snacks, ipod, eye mask and a hairbrush.
