Hey there, Tuesday! Today, I’m showing you WHAT’S IN MY CARRY ON BAG.
I had a few people ask me about this when I did our Scotland/Ireland vacation posts, so I thought today would be a good day to give you a peek. I don’t know why…but I love it when people share this stuff on IG and/or blogs, so hopefully, you’ll think it’s fun to look through mine too 🙂 .
What I pack in my bag varies a little depending on where we’re going and how long my flight is. For long, overnight flights, I add things like cozy socks and a face mask (yes!) and you can read more about that stuff on THIS POST, but for just a standard flight here in the US or somewhere like Mexico, I would pack these things. I went ahead and “packed” my bag just for this post (because I’m not going anywhere right now…). Here’s a little look…
I always take a tote with me on flights because I like that they’re open and I can just reach in and grab what I need. Here are the 15 things I always carry with me on a plane:
1: My wallet (kind of a given, ha!)
2: Passport (I love traveling when it involves this baby!)
3: Sunglasses (I am a HUGE fan of the blue Ray Bans.)
4: My bag of tricks! I like having one bag filled with little things so they’re not floating around inside my bag. (See pic below and I show you what’s inside!)
5: A magazine…because sometimes, I want a break from my book. How fabulous is it that I’ve already gotten a Fall magazine in the mail?! Whoop! Whoop!
6: A baggie filled with chargers. I keep all of my chargers in one bag so that they’re easy to find. I have chargers for my Apple watch, Kindle, MAC book and iPhone in there. I don’t check chargers because with flight delays and such, I don’t want my luggage to be stuck away from me and my stuff to start dying.
7: My MAC book
8: My jewelry bag. Okay, I’ve showed you this before (see below for a pic), but this is the BEST darn thing for jewelry! I always carry on my jewelry rather than put it in my luggage.
9: A bag for my makeup. I try to carry all of my makeup on because that stuff is so fragile that I don’t want it getting broken in my checked bag.
10: Evian spray for my face. This is a MUST for flights!!! Whenever you skin gets dry and icky feeling from being on board, you spray this on (over your makeup) and it instantly hydrates your skin but doesn’t hurt your makeup. It totally refreshes you before you land.
11: My Kindle Paperwhite. I just CANNOT say enough about this little device! Thanks to YOU, I bought one and it has CHANGED MY LIFE! I used to carry 2, 3, 4 sometimes 8 books on trips, but now…just my Paperwhite and BONUS, because it has a built in light, I can see no matter how bright or dark the cabin is.
12: A scarf 🙂 . It keeps you warm, but is easy to take on planes.
13: A lint roller. I carry a lint roller with me every day. My friends have laughed at me before…but I geez…I hate having lint on me 🙂 .
14: An eye mask…because it’s the only way to sleep on the plane (again, read THIS POST about how I have a sleep routine on flights
15: Mints. Got to have those!
It all folds up nice and neat in my bag…
See? And off I go 😉 .
So, here’s what’s inside that one bag pictured above. This has all of my “goodies” like a toothbrush and toothpaste, headphones, a pen, a clip and a rubber band, antibacterial, Advil, lotion and Band Aids. I actually keep this bag in my every day tote because you never know when you might need some of this stuff.
Then, there is this baby…
…the best jewelry organizer of all time!! I have LOVED this thing!!! If has a place for everything! I can’t believe it took me so long to get a legit organizer.
So…for those of you who wanted to know, that’s what’s inside my carry on bag. The only other question is…when do I get to use it next??????
