6 THINGS YOU NEED TO PACK ON YOUR CARRY ON!

Okay, so we leave for Jamaica in less than a week you guys and I am, as usual, freaking out! I just realized the other day that somehow I completely forgot to buy our airline tickets there, I bought them for the way back but not the way there so I don't even know what happened there, ha. So if you're asking how my life is going, that's pretty much it in a nutshell. I'm a mess ya'll! 

MOVING ON. One of the things I get asked about a lot before traveling is "What do you pack in your carry on?" 

First off, I'm going to be honest and tell you guys I haven't found a suitcase or travel bag I love just yet, I bought one but it got pretty beat up in less than a year so I don't want to recommend it to you guys. However, this one is on my wish list! 

Also note that I'm a total over-PACKER! I try my best not to be but it always ends up with me taking 45 outfits for a 5 day trip. This one time I tried not to overpack but ended up wanting everything I didn't pack so - lesson learned. I'll share some packing tips in the future but today I wanted to share a post about what I pack in my carry-on when traveling! 

We travel about 5-6 times a year, so I feel like I've learned a good bit about what I need and don't need. I've also learned it's better to have something and be prepared then to not have it at all. 


1. MEDICINE & PAIN RELIEF - 

One of the things that has come in handy is this little zip bag that I keep all sorts of emergency medicine in, Pepto, ibuprofen, Dramamine (I get sick from traveling reallllly easily.) and all of these things have come in handy so many times. 

2. DRY SHAMPOO FOR LADIES- 
My hair tends to get greasy and limp from traveling so I always like to take a (brush) wet brush and some dry shampoo I also never travel without chapstick and my most favorite hand cream!

3. A PORTABLE CHARGER FOR ELECTRONIC DEVICES- 
A portable charger always comes in handy! Some people like to take books or magazines but I can't read on a plane without getting sick so I skip them. I usually just listen to music and try to take naps, which I also suck at, because I can never relax. 

4. A BLANKET AND/OR NECK PILLOW
It helps to have a comfy neck pillow and travel blanket

5. SOMETHING TO READ OR DO- 
Like I said before some people like to take books to read, or crosswords. I just take my tablet and sometimes my planner and a notebook to jot down ideas and notes that always seem to come to me at the most awkward times. It's always good or handy to have something to "look at" though, especially if you have a long flight!

6. SOMETHING TO DRINK/EAT-
We typically always fly southwest when we can so we do get those little bags of peanuts or pretzels and a drink, however, there is nothing worse for me then feeling sick or yucky and not having anything to eat or drink. I always buy pretzels, mints and water after going through security to take with me on the plane. 




A full list of things I pack:
Travel Wallet
Portable Charger
Headphones
Flint Lint Roller
Hand Cream
Chapstick
Dry Shampoo
Wet Brush
Wisp Toothbrushes
Mints
Deodorant 
Medicines


tip: I always like to "Freshen up" as soon as I land wherever we're going! So I like to take these travel toothbrushes and some deodorant into the bathroom so I can feel "normal" again. I'm not sure why but I just always feel so dirty after being on a plane, which I know is totally weird! 

I pack all of these things in my favorite (ez packing) packing cubes! These are my favorite packing cubes hands down! They're expensive but they're so worth it over every other set i've purchased they've held up the longest! I love how sturdy they are and how they keep everything together so I don't feel like I'm digging through a bunch of stuff I don't need. I also use these when packing our clothes! 



So that's it! A little peek at what I pack in our carry on and 6 things I think everyone should pack in theirs too! I hope it helps you if you're traveling soon or planning to travel soon!


THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for always being so sweet and supportive! It seriously means THE WORLD to me!!

  1. Girl, I'm all about the Pepto! It's like the first thing I grab when I travel. I have a weird stomach and it would suck to be stuck on a place with no meds!
