Travel Carry On Essentials

Happy Friday!

So I think only Kate knows this life update but I'm starting a new job on Monday! I'm super excited about it because it's a career advancement with better benefits and overall work environment. I'm definitely going to miss my coworkers but, when an opportunity like this falls in your lap, it was a sign to move on and upwards.

With that being said, I've done a little weekend travel before things get busy. Most recently was my trip to Houston which I posted about on Wednesday.  

I think everyone knows I live with the travel bug and sometimes do spontaneous, last-minute trips like that one was. You could say my bag is always packed and ready to go with the travel essentials.
Travel Wallet  /  Portable Battery Charger  /  Travel Pillow Set  /  Mini Hand Sanitizers

I'm a huge germaphobe so I can't travel without hand sanitizers to keep my hands clean and wet wipes to wipe down my seat area and hands after eating.

Cosmetic Travel Bag  /  Headphones  /  Water Bottle  /  Healthy Snacks  /  Wet Wipes

Planes get really cold especially on long flights so a warm travel blanket is much needed.

And of course a good book!

  5. These are all on my list as well - I can't travel without sanitizer, but I need to get some new noise cancelling headphones like you have!! I started to bring wipes on the plane and I'll wipe down the seat, the arm rest, the TV & pretty much everything LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. Congrats on your new job! It’s always exciting for that next step! I’m totally with you on always being prepared for travel! I normally have travel sizes ready for my makeup and toiletries ready to go so I don’t even have to think about what to pack!

  7. What! How exciting. Always good to enter a better situation.

  8. Congrats on the new job!!! That is so exciting! So many people are making a change right now, and I have to admit I wish I were one. I am trying. Just not having any luck! I am so happy for you!!!! I wish you all the best.

    I have that book on my TBR, cant wait to hear your thoughts!

  9. Congratulations on the new job! I always bring snacks on the plane to avoid situations like last week for me where they couldn't service us due to turbulence. I hate being without food/water on planes lol.
