My travel schedule has picked up over the last couple of months. Between a wedding, a trip to Maine with the ChappyWrap team, and a Bachelorette trip in Nantucket, I’ve been on the road quite a bit. I wouldn’t consider myself a great traveler by any means, but after not being able to travel for a couple of years, I’m so grateful to be able to go places again.
As we head into the season of holiday travel, I wanted to share a refresh of some of my essentials while they’re still fresh on my mind. I think many of you can relate when I say that I hate packing. Trying to narrow down what to bring is a struggle, and I’m always afraid I’ll leave something behind. So cute travel accessories help make the the experience a little smoother and more enjoyable!
Packing Cubes // I resisted packing cubes forever, but consider me a convert. Especially now that I’m packing for two, it’s so nice to keep things extra organized, and the real key to being able to fit more.
Luggage Set // I am a big fan of everything Paravel does. This suitcase has been with me on all of my recent trips, and I love how beautiful yet durable it is.
Weekender Bag // I fully believe that everyone needs at least one great weekender in their arsenal. I’ve had this bag for years, and it fits everything you could possibly need for two to three days, even if you’re an over-packer like me! I also love a large zip-top Boat and Tote– they’re just so functional and practical and can count as a personal item.
Cadence Capsules // Cadence Capsules are magnetic, refillable containers for travel that you fill with your favorite beauty products and toiletries. I have never traveled with so many beauty products while also saving space. They’re great for long weekend trips and give you a “home while away” experience.
Kindle // In just the short time I’ve had it, I’ve completely converted. It is perfect for traveling since it doesn’t take up space, and there is something incredibly satisfying about how lightweight and easy it is to hold.
Eye Mask // I swear by this eye mask! It’s comfortable, blocks out ALL the light, and, oh my word is it glorious. Worth every penny.
Noise-Canceling Headphones // If you’ve ever worn noise-canceling headphones on a plane, you know it makes a difference! As someone who enjoys listening to music on flights, it cuts out all of the background static on flights and makes flying a little more relaxing. This pair of headphones and these AirPods are both noise-canceling.
