Everyone has their own style and preference when it comes to what goes on a trip with them in their carry-on or checked luggage. I am no exception to the rule. I have compiled a list of the accessories that go with me on every trip, regardless if it is a weekend getaway to the mountains, or a week in New York City.
The first and most important item on this list is my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM. True to it’s name, there is always enough room in this bag. It even comes with a handy removable pouch that can be turned into a wristlet for a night out. This bag becomes my purse/carry-on and holds everything I could need at arm’s reach in the car or on the airplane.
I never go anywhere without my Henri Bendel cosmetic case. No matter what purse I’m carrying, it is there with several of my accessories and essentials tucked away inside.
I love this Belkin Headphone Splitter because Brady always downloads movies on the plane and I mooch off of him.
This Belkin Surge Protector comes in handy at the airport when needing to charge multiple devices. It also never fails that I become everyone at the gate’s best friend since it offers both regular plug-ins and USB ports. And let’s face it. There are never enough outlets in hotel rooms. Going overseas? Just plug the voltage converter into the wall and the surge protector into that and presto!
I would be lost without my iPhone 6 and iPad Mini. My iPhone always becomes my primary camera and well… duh… my lifeline to the world. My iPad Mini also provides me with entertainment on flights, road trips, and during down time.
It is inevitable that my phone battery gets drained while I’m away from my charger. Look no further than the Jackery Fit Portable Battery Charger to keep devices charged while out and about! It comes with two USB ports to allow for charging multiple devices at once.
I hate paying for water. Enough said. I always have an empty Camelbak Water Bottle on me, especially at the airport so I’m not paying $5 for a bottle of water!
As sad as it is, my go-to headphones are the ones from my iPhone. Don’t judge me.
Because my LV purse is simply too big to carry out and about with me on excursions or wherever, I use this Crossbody Bag from H&M. This is a great bag as it has a fold-over pouch to hold guide books. Because it has a fold-over pouch, it makes for great security against pick-pocketers trying to steal!
Lastly, I never go anywhere without my eBags Packing Cubes. These cubes are so spacious and keep my clothes organized when TSA decides to tear through my luggage or the baggage handler wants to see if he can make it do a triple backflip. I’ve never had a problem with space using these eBags and my clothes don’t come out wrinkled. My personal advice is to buy 2 sets of assorted sizes so that way you always have the right amount of space!
