Packing my suitcase may be an adventure for each trip, but my carry on bag is a breeze to pack, because it’s always the same.
What can I say? I’m a creature of habit.
So, without further ado, here’s what’s in my carry on:
I always take my large Givenchy Antigona – It’s the perfect size to fit my computer and all the essentials, and it has a zippered top which I need when I’m traveling. I also like to keep everything in pouches and bags to avoid spillage and to ensure that nothing gets lost or smooshed at the bottom.
Makeup Bag – All the goodies that I shared in the My Daily Makeup Routine blog post will come along for the ride.
Beauty Bag – As I’ve gotten more interested in skin care, my in flight beauty routine has evolved. For long flights I’ll fly sans makeup and add moisturizers, maybe a clear mask, and try to keep my skin hydrated in flight.
Snack Bag – Nuts, bars, and supplements are on me at all times. Check out my Travel + Macros post for more on how I stay healthy while I travel.
Miscellaneous Bag – This bag actually lives in my purse regardless of the destination. It has everything I could need throughout the day from feminine hygiene products, Motrin, and nail files to a mini flashlight, ear plugs, and pasties. Like I said. Miscellaneous.
Cord Bag – I put my laptop cord, charges, my external hard drive, and other phone, pad, or laptop paraphernalia in this bag.
Laptop & Tablet – Entertainment on the go.
Last item in my bag? I always grab the biggest water bottle that I can find while I’m at the airport and shove it into the bag. I hate buying plastic bottles, but I do this when I fly so I can use the bottle for the rest of the trip without worrying about losing one of my favorites.
What’s in YOUR bag?
