Summer may be “officially” over, but traveling should be a part of your year round plan. Whether your jetting cross country for business or headed upstate for a weekend getaway, traveling can be stressful and uncomfortable. We’ve rounded up our absolute favorite things to pack for any type of getaway. Try them out and let us know your favorite!
Nothing dries out the skin like traveling. Being stuck on an airplane with recycled air is not the healthiest and long road trips can add stress to your skin. That’s why you should always travel with super hydrating facial products! We love Okame, a botanical skincare line that’s inspired by nature, non-toxic and most importantly, affordable. Their Bio Cellulose Facial Masks are easily packed into your suitcase or carry-on and will keep your skin fresh on vacay.
There’s nothing that’s more annoying than enjoying the warmth and sun on vacation outdoors and then receiving a text and not being able to read it in the sun. Whether you’re trying to put on some music, read a book, or get some emails checked off your list, it’s difficult to see things on your phone in the sunshine. myFlipShade has solved that problem for you! The cute iPhone attachment attaches to the back of your phone and flips around to give you a pop-up shade to block the glare so you can get down to business no matter where you are.
It’s not uncommon to see travelers with pillows wrapped around their necks, but those are for amateurs. The Myllow is a next-level travel pillow that brings comfort to the next level. This adjustable pillow can transform from a neck pillow into a rectangular pillow so you can put it behind your back, in the crook of your neck, or even on your tray table. It also incorporates a pocket that can hold headphones or an eye mask!
MyTagalongs makes the CUTEST travel accessories — from eye masks to hair tool storage, you’re going to want everything they have to offer. We love their Set of 3 Drawstring Bags, which make traveling with all your laundry super convenient. You can store your shoes, your dirty clothes and clean clothes in separate bags to make sure everything stays clean and pristine.
Nothing derails healthy eating and a good diet like traveling. That’s why flying (or driving) with your own food is the way to go. (Airport food is rarely healthy.) Modern Picnic is changing the game by making chic lunchboxes for adults on the go. The Luncher is a very fashionable food carrier that you can take to work, the gym, or on the plane, without anyone even realizing what you’ve got inside. It’s made of premium vegan leather and has an insulated interior to keep food fresh.
What if you could have all of your travel essentials stored easily right in one space? The Aria Travel Kit is a must-have in your carry-on! Traveling doesn’t always go as smoothly as planned — flat tires, traffic, flight delays and cancellations can make even the more pro traveler groan. This kit will keep you fully equipped no matter what’s thrown your way. Each kit includes handmade face and body moisturizer, lip balm, all-natural deodorant, toothpaste, alcohol-free make-up wipes, a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush, silk sleeping eye mask, microfiber socks, noise-cancelling earbuds, ear plugs and a pen. This kit is putting the Girl Scouts to shame!
It’s always important to bring the proper footwear on any vacation – something that is both fashionable and comfortable, plus easy to pack. Vines Islandwear create the perfect pair to toss into any suitcase for a warm weather vacation. Made from recycled materials, these sandals are unique, eco-friendly, 100% vegan, and completely comfortable. This woman-run company is also working to launch a giving program. Best of all, the soles are infused with a light coconut scent — finally, shoes that won’t stink up your suitcase!!
