Carry-On Bag Travel Essentials

carry on essentials.

carry on essentials.

I’m traveling to Orlando, Las Vegas, Chicago, NYC, Austin, Atlanta, Cape Cod, Salt Lake City, Myrtle Beach, and Tustin (to name a few) this year. My expanded role and recent promotion in my career affords me the ability to travel as often as I’d like but also comes with the challenges of living out of a suitcase, multitasking constantly, and the demands of optimum efficiency while en route.

My travel bags are a mix of business and entertainment, to do lists, quick make up fixes, comfort, and energy. Sometimes I’m rushing for my connection or waiting on a rental car and off to see a client straight from the airport, so I’m sure to pack easy, effective beauty remedies.

Here’s what’s in my bag:
1. Journal: for to-do lists, random musings, ideas at 36,000 ft. and self reflection. (Sheffield Home)
2. Ray Ban Aviators
3. Kate Spade Victoria Classic Spade Purse
4. Cool Gear Water Bottle
5. Laura Mercier Lip Glace (pictured: Bare Baby, Grenadine)
6. Toni & Guy Shine Gloss Serum
7. Burberry Beat Perfume (rotate between this and Ralph Lauren blue religiously)
8. The Limited Carry On Bag (Sold out. Love this more: Kate Spade or Stripes are my life!)
9. Benefit Erase Paste (above all else, this.)
10. Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black
11. Magazine (subscriptions like Travel & Leisure, Coastal Living, and People Stylewatch ensure you always have something to bring on board, and at 25% of the airport kiosk price)
12. Infinity Scarf Pashmina
13. Microsoft Surface Pro (emails and lots of books and music)
14. Clif Bar (favorites: chocolate chip, trail mix)
15. Laura Mercier Customizable Face Palette (my choices: Matte Bronze, Sweet Mandarin, Chestnut, Chocolate Brown, Gilded Pines/Cinnamon/GoldRoyale/PinkPearl, TwilightGrey/PalePink,Topaz,AfricanViolet)

Where are you traveling this year? What are your must haves?

Happy Travels!
