With traveling and weekend trips being a predominant part of the last month I thought I’d make a special edition of Things I Love Saturday. Today I’m sharing a few of my Can’t-Live-Without-Them travel necessities. From beauty must haves to the little things that just make a trip run smoother.

What’s always in YOUR suitcase?
