In yesterday’s post I touched base with a few do’s and don’ts of traveling attire.  For today’s post I added all of my traveling essentials into one post.  Of course I added the clothing, but I also added some things that I either put in my carry on or purse.  If you are traveling for a long time, like I will be , you should probably know a few things that you should bring.

Neck Pillow

That neck pillow will make all the difference.  I didn’t use one ever and my parents actually bought one last year.  I didn’t get a chance to borrow it but they said that it is the best invention ever.  It’s very easy for me to fall asleep on a plane, but it’s hard for me to stay asleep. 

Hair Ties

Hair ties are a must in my book, you can see in my outfit posts that I almost always have one on my wrist, I actually forget that it’s there.
Baby wipes

Believe it or not these come in really handy.  Whether you spill something on you, or if you eat something sticky and can’t get to a bathroom fast enough.  Even if you just want to use it to refresh your skin.  Last year I traveled for about 6 hours to Denmark, had a 7-8 hour layover, then another hour and 45 minutes to my final destination; Gdansk, Poland.  Needless to say, I needed a little refresher.  Once I was about halfway into my layover I started to walk around and look for a bathroom.  As soon as I got in there I took out my wipes, cleaned my face and actually wiped down my arms and legs.  Then I proceeded to put on my makeup and hair extensions.  Trust me, these wipes really do come in handy.


I almost always have these with me even when it’s not that time of the month.  You never know when your body will decide to switch it up a bit.  Sometimes it can be stress related so you can have an accident while traveling.  Last year I stocked up just in case!

Passport holder

I still have yet to get one of these but I really want to. 

Mini emergency kit

Trust me, this will work wonders.  This little kit has a lot of things packed into one little pouch.

Clear Plastic Pouch

With TSA you have to make sure certain medications, liquids, or makeup are in clear bags.  So, what better way that to just have a clear plastic pouch?


You never know when a headache might hit.  At least for me, that’s the case.  I get those a lot and sometimes they are stress related, so even though flying doesn’t bother me or stress me out it stresses out my body. 


Just so that you have something to do in between layovers.


I don’t trust leaving my camera or any electronics for that matter in my checked in bag.  The way that they throw those things, and how often they get lost I’m not about to lose the electronics that keep this blog going!
