CARRY ON TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

September 10, 2016

I’m packing for our honeymoon in Europe, which means I’m packing just essentials because want to have plenty of room for all the fabulous clothes I’ll be bringing back. I don’t believe in checking luggage and like to be able to move quickly through Europe – efficiency, style and comfort are key- so carry on is a MUST! I teach this same lesson to my clients and because I consider myself an expert traveler,  here are some of my carry-on travel essentials.

 

CLOTHING

I love to stay comfortable on long flights and need to be able to sleep comfortably hence choosing athleisure over jeans. I prefer wearing dark-colored yoga pant with a light sweater and sneakers.  The sneakers are easy to slide on and off during security checks. I love layers because I’m either really hot or cold on flights, so I upgrade my look with a leather jacket and always carry my LV scarf which doubles as a blanket. When its lights out, I switch my shoes for a pair of soft chenille fuzzy socks and my eye mask.

CARRY ON BAG

I fit everything inside one international sized rolling bag from Costco which has traveled the world with me. I’m not a big spender when it comes to luggage as efficient is key, especially for carry-on travel. I put everything else inside my large Longchamp including my cross body Balenciaga, which will be my main purse for this trip.

 

MY ESSENTIALS

I travel in my glasses so I carry my contacts, camera, cords, iPad so I don’t have multiple bags. It’s easy when going from city to city. Here are the rest of the items in my Longchamp:

  • headphones I don’t like carrying my wireless ones, but my skull candy so I can listen to music and watch a movie
  • jack splitter for our headphones
  • eye mask
  • sleep aid/Ambien
  • lavender hand sanitizer smells amazing (Whole Foods)
  • Josie Maran- Argan Oil for my skin, hair and cuticle as they get really dry
  • wet wipes to wipe down armrests and for the bathroom
  • Colgate Wisp I’m obsessed. It’s like a mini-toothbrush with instant paste. I don’t have to get up. I can use 2 to get the job done on long flights.
  • External charger for iPhone
  • Kind bars
  • International converters (not shown)
