My Favorite Travel Items

Today I'm sharing some of my favorite travel items.

In general, I don't leave home without my swell bottle. 
In fact, I brought both a small and big one with 
me to London. At the airport, I got ice from Starbucks
and then filled it with water. I had nice ice cold
water for the entire flight. It was great. 
S'Well Water Bottle

This spray is so refreshing and it doesn't ruin
your makeup. I sprayed it numerous times during the flight to London.
 To be honest, I carry this in my makeup bag at all times. 
Mario Badescu Rose Water

This is a great way to travel with pills.
It keep my pills nice and organized.
Also, it was nice to have them in one place.
Side note-I did carry copies of my prescriptions
with me, just in case.  Too bad, my inhalers didn't fit in this.
Pill Box

I use to laugh at people when I saw them
carrying these at the airport. That is until I got one.
I love mine so much that I even take it on road trips with me.

This little thing has everything you
need in case of an emergency.
I always travel with one. 

These are great travel bags to keep you organized.
I used one for my hair products and another
for my hair brushes. I used the little one 
for my candy and gum. And some splenda.
Yes, I always travel with splenda.

It takes alot of products to look as cheap as I do.
Ok, I kid I kid but I do like to carry a nice makeup bag
when traveling and this one fits alot.

Travel Cubes

I found these exact ones at TJ Maxx
on clearance for $8 dollars! They make packing
so easy. I would never travel without them.
They keep clothes nice, neat and clean.
TJ Maxx

One time when I was traveling, my shopping bag
fell apart. Thankfully, I had a pack-able tote inside my bag.
It truly saved the day.  So, now I always travel with one.
You never know when you will need it. It also can
function as small grocery bag. 

The end!
 If you are still reading this,
thank you! Didn't realize this would be
as long as it was. So, Thank You for
reading. Hope I wasn't too long winded.

Tell me what are your favorite travel items??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

  2. LOL I don't remember if I saw it on Twitter or Facebook but there was a picture of that spray next to a screen shot of a text message from a boyfriend to his girlfriend that said "who tf is Mario Badescu? actually don't answer. I hope he makes you happy"

  3. i have to say, nothing beats a good ol' backpack. i've tried everything under the sun and i always go back to my beat-up, reliable backpack when travelling. those extra pockets come in handy!

  4. i could go on for days with the best travel essentials and well, these are all on my list! water bottles are so easy to bring and it's like why not. and cubes and containers for organizing all the things. you should see me with ziplocks too haha. the best!

  5. I always have a water bottle on me too! I need to try that rose spray!

  6. Those packing cubes are seriously the best! The only way we survived Europe in carryons!

  7. Ah such a great list! I have to say that I always use a carry on to travel, but I tend to put a folded up bag/duffel into it... because... shopping! hehe Then if I need to I can rearrange or check a bag on the way back. I feel like over the years I have really simplified what I travel with, so I don't need so many baggies, etc. anymore. XO - Alexandra

  8. I use travel pillows sitting on my couch at home :) haha #truth

  9. A 1000 times yes to always carrying a water bottle on trips! It's the best way to make sure that you stay hydrated and to save money too!

  10. Hahaha, I'm the same way with the travel pillow, I love mine! It came in a little bag so I tie it to the outside of my carry-on so it doesn't take up any space :) I got the Pinch Provisions for a few friends as part of their Christmas present- they really are perfect little emergency kits! I've heard so many great reviews of the rose water spray, I really must try it already!

  11. I need those travel cubes for our upcoming trip, and I never thought to pack my S'well bottle. Genius idea! <3

  12. With two more trips planned for this year, this is a great list! Those neck pillows are a must for overseas travel. And I absolutely love my S'well bottle as well, they come in so many pretty colors, love the pink!

  13. I love my swell bottle and my travel pillow. I always bring both of those anytime I am on a plane.

  14. I've almost bought travel cubes a couple of times, but decided against them because of the price since I don't do a ton of traveling, but now I'm definitely going to check TJ Maxx the next time I'm there!

  15. i have those travel cases but i haven't used them yet. hopefully going to use them for our next big trip. i have heard amazing things about that rose water, i am intrigued!


Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you!
