There's nothing better than a vacation to clear the mind and get away from it all. As we start to plan our next trip to Chicago in the fall, I'm already thinking about what cozy clothes I'll be packing.
Fall is probably my favourite season (sweater weather OR is it actually leather weather? LOL) but packing all of those bulky knits into a carry-on can be challenging.
I have two life-changing travel hacks for you:
- trail sized beauty items
- packing cubes
You know those samples you get from Sephora? Save them in a baggy because they'll come in handy for your next trip.
True story, I once spent over $100 on basics like tiny toothpaste, travel-friendly mouthwash, a small foldable hairbrush, and a bunch of other personal care stuff. Shits expensive so save those trial size samples!
If you haven't already tried packing cubes, you don't know what you're missing. They're life changing! Psst - you can fit more stuff into your carry on because it all gets packed away so neatly.
Having a nifty little carry on like that one from AWAY helps too. I find my stuff doesn't get knocked around anymore and it's much easier to pack. It's also held up incredibly well considering it's been to Iceland twice and all over the U.S and Canada.
One last thing I love to travel with is a generously sized handbag to fit all of my essentials. Aside from the obvious passport and cardholder, I have a cosmetics bag containing my Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, facial mist, CHANEL hand cream, sanitizer wipes, Advil, and tissues. I try to have a reusable water bottle with me when I can, my iPad, headphones, a battery pack, and some vegan protein bars. I always travel with snacks just in case!
Stay tuned for my future blog post on HOW TO PACK A CARRY ON!
