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.
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.
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)
