Happy Monday everyone! It’s a new week and I’ve safely made it to Orlando. I will be here for an entire week for the National Kitchen & Bath Show and then Disney World! Packing for a trip like is no easy task so I always plan my outfits ahead of time and write down everything in list format so there’s no way I forget anything when packing. I also wanted to share with you all some of my travel essentials that help make traveling a breeze!
I have a DIY travel kit I made that I use on every trip that was super simple to make. I like doing this instead of trying to pack all my full size products (like I used to in the past) because I would always end up forgetting something important and it was just a big mess trying to fit everything together in one organized place. So I went to Ulta one day, picked out a medium size cosmetic bag and good quality products in travel sizes that covered everything I need from toothpaste to hair products to shaving cream. Target has a great selection of travel size products as well. I only use this kit when I’m on a trip so it doesn’t end up running out as quickly as you’d think. Something I do that works for me and makes packing a little less stressful 🙂
There is nothing worse than packing a new outfit for a trip and then putting it on for the first time and it’s FULL of wrinkles. I used to bring my steamer on every trip with me, which is a little crazy I know, but it was the only way I could ensure a wrinkle free outfit. It wasn’t until I came across the Downy Wrinkle Releaser that traveling became so much easier! This stuff is a necessity! Find it HERE.
Iswear by the Lulu Lemon vinyasa scarf that can be worn in tons of different ways. The material is light weight so I can easily carry it in my bag or around my neck as a scarf and then use it as a blanket while I’m on the plane and it actually keeps me warm. I have yet to wear it all the different ways, but how cute and versatile, right?! Find it HERE.
I am the type of person that gets hungry after just a couple hours so having snacks are clutch for me. Especially when the airport/plane doesn’t exactly have healthy options. My usual go-to is fruit like an apple or a banana. Last week my mom gave me a bunch of oranges from her tree so this trip I’ll be that one girl peeling an orange at the gate. I have no shame though! I also get pretty dehydrated whenever I fly so I always try to buy a water bottle before I get on the plane because those little cups they give out just don’t do it for me.
Unfortunately not every flight will play a movie so I always like to have something to do on the plane so that time goes by quicker. I’ve been super into listening to audio books in the car lately so I already had a great book picked out. I’m sure you’ve heard of it, “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”. This was perfect for the plane because sometimes the person next to me is sleeping so I feel bad turning the bright reading light on. This way I can just lay back, close my eyes and listen to my book in peace.
