Five on Friday: Travel Essentials
We travel a lot. Mostly to my parents house, but we are always packing suitcases...so I'd like to think I'm a bit of an expert. I can pack a suitcase for a weekend away in 20 minutes and my clothes aren't wrinkled when I arrive. So there are a few favorite things I want to share to help you with your packing.
1. Bago Toiletry Kit
I love this toiletry kit. I can fit almost everything I need to get ready inside of it except my hair stuff.
2. Makeup Kit
I use this daily and usually travel with it. If I'm strapped for space, I will condense into a smaller bag. But this bag is great to protect your makeup if you have higher end makeup that is prone to breaking while traveling.
3. Jewelry Roll
I don't use this as often anymore because I don't wear as much jewelry (#homemakerlife), but when I am going on longer vacations like cruises I use this to organize my necklaces, bracelets and earrings. They are well protected and don't get tangled.
After years of using American Tourister exclusively, I bought my husband an Ebags Motherlode 21" Carry-on Wheeled Duffel and we BOTH love it. It is a suitcase that you can customize and keep organized. We can fit everything he needs in this suitcase for a week long business trip. When we are taking a week long vacation, we each use our carry-on and then bring a third for toiletries and shoes.
5. Netflix/Amazon Prime
I love the download feature they both have so I can download several hours worth of TV or Movies to watch on the plane or in the car. In the past year, this has become an essential for travel for me. I struggle to read on a plane for a variety of reasons lately, but this feature is amazing!
