Whew, what a whirlwind. About two and a half weeks after we got home from Europe, we headed out to California for a long weekend over July fourth. Needless to say, we’ve done a lot of traveling the last month and a half. I’m always curious what peoples ‘must have’ travel items are so I’ve linked all of mine above. Also, I’m sharing a few travel tips below that I’ve learned from others along the way.

Troy got me this book bag for Christmas and it is a great companion to my carry on suitcase for traveling. It could fit a ton but was also comfortable to carry and most importantly, cute 🙂

My sister taught me to bring an empty water bottle in your carry on. You can fill it up at a drinking fountain after security and save yourself $5 paying for a bottle of water in the airport. Good for your wallet and the environment 🙂

Sleeping on planes is really hard for me! I’ve found that having a face mask, ear plugs and a neck pillow are necessary for me to even consider sleeping. This post was helpful on how to sleep on planes during long flights and it actually worked for me! To summarize the article, she doesn’t sleep on the short flights of the trip and then on the long flight she ‘gets ready for bed’ by brushing her teeth and washing her face.

This eye cream by Rodan + Fields will make you look like you’ve had a great night sleep even if you only got a few hours. I struggle with dark under eye circles and this eye cream makes my eyes so bright and has eliminated a lot of the darkness under my eyes.

These face wipes are great to travel with to easily take your makeup off. Even if you aren’t taking your makeup off, they are great to use to make your skin feel refreshed.

If you have a long flight, I would definitely recommend investing in a pair of wireless headphones. The pair linked above are comfy to wear and hold their charge for quite a while. For a less bulky option, Troy has these and really likes them!

I received these travel containers as a gift for Christmas and love them! If you are in the market for any, I would definitely recommend these.

We bought this rechargeable battery for our trip and it came in handy on more than one occasion. You can plug up to three USB cords into the battery at once to charge your phone, headphones, etc.

I’d love to know what you take with you on when you travel! What do I need to be taking that I don’t currently?
