5 Things in My Travel Bag

Tomorrow we are leaving for Hawaii bright and early! Yes it is honeymoon time! We have a short layover in Arizona and then for 9 days I errrr we will be beaching, getting massages, relaxing and sipping on Mai Tai’s!

I wanted to share the things with you I always have when I am on an airplane. The 5 Things in my Travel Bag that no matter what I always carry.

 

Travel Bag

I carry everything in my Barrington Gifts tote bag with my new monogram on it! NAM! WOOO! It doesn’t look exactly like the one above I am fairly certain the style of mine is not made anymore but it is Navy and white and perfect!

Onto the 5 Things in my travel bag:

1. iPad: Always! This has my books, movies, magazines, ability to check my social media, watch Netflix and so many other things. It’s really a magical device no? This is the first thing that goes into my bag and I always make sure I have it. Plus lots of extra ways to charge it. I carry my iPad in a gorgeous Gigi New York iPad case that I love.

2. Tory Burch Travel Wallet: I have a giant Tory Burch wallet I always use for travel because it zips around and is perfect for boarding passes, tickets, etc. Plus it houses the important things like my license, credit and debit cards.

3. A Variety of One Truffle Pouches: I have purchased about 5 of these in various sizes and I use them for everything. One for my makeup/beauty products I carry daily. I have one that has all of my chargers. I use another for snacks and various items. They are the perfect way to organize things in your bag so you can find them easily.

4. My new EOS Vanilla Mint lip balm: I mentioned above I keep beauty products in a One Truffle bag but I had to point this one out specifically because since I found it at Target a few weeks ago it has become a daily life staple. I adore EOS but this combo of Vanilla Mint is just perfect. Go get yourself one ASAP!

5. Orbit Wintermint Gum: This is my favorite gum and really the only gum both Andrew and I love. We always have tons especially when we travel. I also take tons of mints because I am obsessed with starlight mints! But this gum has been my favorite for probably a decade and I could not travel without it.

 

Of course I have other things in my travel bag but these are the 5 Things in my travel bag you will always find!

    I have knitting or crochet in my travel bag too. On our road trip a few weeks ago I sat in the back of the car with our little boy and worked on a knitting project near enough all the way which was like a 3 or 4 hour car drive.

  5. First and foremost, HAPPY HONEYMOON! I hope y’all have an amazing trip and enjoy relaxing on the beaches of Hawaii — that sounds so ideal!

    Secondly, I love what you pack in your travel bag. It’s been a while since I’ve taken a trip that required a travel bag, but mine generally looks something like yours, though I swap out a Kindle for the iPad. Fantastic on the truffles as sweet snacks, the gum AND lipglass. All definitely essentials!

    I have yet to use the EOS lip balm, but I always see it at the counter at Target. Love the idea of the travel pouches. Always losing my lip glosses in my mammoth-sized bag.

  9. Congratulations and have a fabulous honeymoon! Mine was in Hawaii, too. Maui to be exact. Something always in my travel bag is ear plugs. I don’t always use them, but they have been the difference in agitatedly laying awake and falling into quality sleep.

  14. You’ve motivated me to clean out my purse. I know this is your travel bag but I’m on the go so much during the day I need to put together something to keep me organized. I keep forgetting things!

    OH HI! I’m obsessed with everything in your bag! I think it looks a lot like what I would carry in mine! I have wanted to try EOS for so long but I don’t know if I can break myself of my Carmex addiction! What’s your favorite flavor besides that one? I’m not a vanilla person! (crazy, I know!)

    Very practical list! I would also include my iPhone, cause I use it more as a camera than phone and my journal. As much as I LOVE my iPad and tech, I still need paper and pen.

    What I wish I had, benadryl cream. We went on a cruise and the night before we left I got bit by something and the boat dr only had a pill that left me so exhausted for like two days of our trip. It was fun and good after that. Have fun in Hawaii,
