15 Items I Never Travel Without

Growing up, my family would vacation in Florida at least once a year. Aside from my horrible, chronic ear infections, flying never bothered me. I can’t count the times I’ve flown, but it’s become second nature at this point. And honestly, I’ve got it down when it comes to what to bring with me on any given flight.

Alex and I are headed to Hawaii on Sunday to celebrate our 5 year anniversary, so it got me thinking about all the items I consistently travel with or keep in my travel backpack. Oh yeah, that’s the first thing I never fly without—my sleek yet totally practical Rebecca Minkoff backpack. It’s nylon, so it’s perfectly durable for travel and stowing under the seat in front of you. I used to have a cloth backpack, and I can’t tell you the number of times I or someone else had spilled on it (and never came out). Cute!


1. Silk Travel Set
Comfiest + cutest neck pillow and eye mask. A must for getting a quick nap in despite someone next to you keeping their damn light on. Byeee!
2. Shower Sheets
Easiest, most travel-friendly way to freshen up on the plane or after the beach! These are a staple in my travel beauty bag!
3. Scrunchies
Cutest scrunchies for the plane, beach, wherever. Headaches? Don't know her!!
4. Dirty Clothes Bag
OMG love these bags! Keep your dirty clothes out of the mix. They also have ones for wet beach stuff!
5. Travel Vanity
I recently got this + she is my everything. It holds all my hair products, makeup, brushes, and more.
6. Rebecca Minkoff Backpack
I never travel without this! The nylon protects it from spills or dirt so it stays clean. My ride or die!
7. Portable Charger
LITERAL BEST PORTABLE CHARGER I'VE EVER USED! It holds like 7 full charges on your phone + has a few USB ports so you can charge all your shit at once. LIFESAVER!
8. Beauty Bag
Perfect to easily keep your essentials in one place in your backpack. Lip balm, shower sheets, contacts, advil, you name it!
9. HydroFlask
Recently upgraded to this bish + I love it so much. Not too big or heavy to travel with + keeps my water super cold.
10. Travel Facial Mist
Love this travel size of my favorite rose facial mist for a quick pick me up.
11. AirPods
Yes I'm obnoxious but I need 3 headphones with me at all times on a flight. My AirPods (obv), regular headphones for movies, and ones to fit my iPhone if my AirPods die on me.
12. Superga Platform Shoes
Favorite sneakers that are cute AF but also give me a lil height boost.
13. Tie Dye Sweater
Lastly, my favorite sweater ever I can't stop wearing! SO comfy and cute, which is what you want on a flight.

Bento Box – I only bring one on long or international flights, but this has changed the game! While most international airlines give you meals, I eat a plant-based diet, and sometimes I don’t have an option or it’s super unappetizing / unhealthy. When flying I try to stay far away from sodium, which is often found in pre-packaged foods. Now I make my own meals before my flight, so I know I’ll feel good and can eat whenever I want. Yes, you can bring this through security! I did a whole video on this already so check it out here!

Snacks – Lastly, I MUST pack my own snacks. Too many times have I not had time to grab something to eat, and I was SO HANGRY and miserable the whole flight. Airport snacks are also ungodly overpriced, so no thanks. Instead I pack my own snacks that are low to no sodium or sugar, filling, and healthy. Some of my favorites are fresh fruit and nut butter packs, Mary’s Gone Crackers, kale chips, and GoMacro bars.

What are your travel essentials? Am I missing something? Let me know below!

    I started the year with a bad credit score, lingering debts and derogatory record which affected my ability to finance a new home, including a new car. I tried a few credit restoration firms but all were abortive until I saw a post about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. I reached out to them and surprisingly they helped cleaned-up my derogatory and raised my FICO score to 782 across all three bureaus, within a short period of time I got qualified for a new home, and also purchased my dream car. Anyone with related issues can reach out to them for assistance via [Hackvanish @ Gmail. Com] or Phone: (2 0 9 ) 3 3 0 – 3 0 4 7.

    Hello, everyone! Today, I’m about to unravel the biggest secret I’ve encountered – an ATM card I stumbled upon in the depths of the internet. It’s not every day you encounter something as enigmatic as this! an ATM card from a clandestine online shop that allows you to withdraw a whopping $5,000 daily.
    This card has no branding, no company name, and it arrived in a completely nondescript package. Its origin remains a mystery. The only clear message: $5,000 daily withdrawals. Could it be too good to be true?
    For the past month, I’ve been using this enigmatic ATM card, and it’s nothing short of mind-blowing. It works like a charm, allowing me to withdraw $5,000 each day. I’ve tested it at various ATMs, and it delivers on its promise. I must admit, no card is perfect. There have been a couple of instances when the card didn’t work in very remote areas, but that’s more about the local banking infrastructure than the card itself.
    This card is like a treasure chest in your pocket, it has high-reward, works seamlessly, and I’ve made a fortune from this card’s ATM withdrawals! Compared to other cards in the market, it stands out for its transparency and excellent customer support.
    If you’re looking for a financial ally that empowers you, I can’t recommend this ATM card enough. The $5,000 daily withdrawal is real. Check it out t.me/Darkwebatmcard and take control of your financial future.

    I’m from Lida, Belarus and my name is Alena Darja. Investing in cryptocurrency can be a lucrative opportunity, but it comes with risks. Unfortunately, I learned this lesson the hard way when I lost my initial investment of $136,000 to a fake online investment platform but thanks to Omega Recovery Specialist who was able to recover 90 percent of my money. I’m so grateful and I’m putting this here for everyone to see.
