Hey Y’all! I haven’t written a blog post in quite some time, and I’m happy to be back! Thanks for stopping by to hang out for a bit. 🙂 In the total chaos of getting ready for our next trip (Leaving for Germany/Switzerland today!), I thought of this blog topic. Also–I find writing to be therapeutic, and it was nice to sit down for a few minutes to talk to y’all. I always enjoy hearing your feedback, so let me know in the comments of this post or my Instagram post of your must have items when you travel! If you are interested in hearing about mine, just keep reading!
Impressions Vanity Mirror: This little light-up mirror is so convenient–fits right in your makeup bag! It has both a regular mirror and magnified mirror on the other side. I actually received this as a Christmas gift in my stocking this past year (Thanks Mom!), and it goes with me on every trip! I don’t have to worry about sharing the bathroom mirror with someone, poor lighting, etc. I just sit wherever and whenever to put my makeup on with this handy little thing!
Travel Mirror (currently on sale too)
Nexxus Hair Masque: First of all, I love Nexxus hair masques. I always use a hair masque in place of regular conditioner, and this one is so moisturizing. Secondly, this takes up barely any space in your suitcase! Depending on how long my trip is, I will pack a couple of these (one pack usually lasts me a couple washes, and I have very thick hair.). If you care to hear more about hair products I love, I’ll link that here. 🙂
Perfect Bar: The BEST protein bar I have ever tasted hands down (with really great ingredients too). And let me tell you, I’ve tried a ton of protein bars. You can find these in the refrigerated section of most grocery stores including Aldi and Target. These can be out of the refrigerator for up to a week and can either be a meal replacement or a snack depending on the person. Breakfast is super important to me, so I always have these just in case something prevents me from making time for breakfast when traveling! For example, I know I will be on the plane for 9+ hours here shortly, so having these bars on hand has me covered.
Silk/Satin Pillowcase: This may seem like a “diva” item as my mom would say. However, if you know me, you know that I am a terrible sleeper! I started sleeping on a satin pillowcase last year, and recently splurged on a pure silk one. There are so many benefits of sleeping on silk, and I will not go into all the details. The bottom line is I sleep so much better with this, and I make sure I’m never without it! No one has time for sleep deprivation when traveling the world! I’ll link both the satin and silk pillowcases.
Satin Pillowcase (more affordable option)
Travel Wet Wipes: Some of y’all are laughing at this one, that’s okay! Hey, I don’t like germs. If I’m going to spend enough time on an airplane to eat/sleep/relax, you can bet I’m wiping down my arm rests, tray table, etc. before getting too comfortable! No one has time to pick up nasty germs when traveling the world either, right??
I hope that you find some of these items helpful for your next trip! Stay tuned for a flood of photos for the next 10+ days of our trip to Germany/Switzerland! If you aren’t already following me on Instagram, my handle is oliviaccgreen.
