Travel Bag Essentials

Hey y’all! I travel a lot, and so I have the contents of my little black backpack that I carry with me when I travel down to a science. In this post, I’m going to be sharing with y’all what all I keep in my bag and more tips and tricks I have based on my experiences.

  • Headphones (for flights, family car rides, avoiding socializing)
  • A good book 
  • Gum (no explanation needed)
  • Hand sanitizer (again, do I need to explain this?) 
  • A hairbrush (a small one)
  • Mascara (travel size if possible)
  • Chapstick (of course)
  • A neutral lipstick
  • Makeup remover wipes
  • Portable phone charger (story time! When I was in New York, I ended up using the GPS on my phone to find the places I wanted to see. using my GPS so much ended up DRAINING my phone’s battery, and I’m happy I had a portable charger in my backpack. Moral of the story: keep a charger with you, especially in big cities!)
  • Last but not least, A water bottle. Stay hydrated!

Happy Travels!

Just a college girl taking on life with a cup of coffee in her hand. Also very prone to window shopping and eating in my free time.
