Travel Essentials You MUST Have 

I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have caught myself the day before a trip trying to run through the lists of what needs to be packed along. I always, always, always forget something essential on every single trip I go on no matter where on earth I am going. 

Bluetooth Speaker 

I can’t tell you how many times I have been getting ready in a hotel room wishing the music was just a little bit louder. Packing a small Bluetooth speaker ensures that you will never be short of music and a good time. 

Hair Mask 

What better time to put a hair mask on than on a travel day? Put a hair mask in and slick your hair back into a bun. You will have a cute simple hairstyle and it will heal your hair in the process. Personally, I always feel like I have to shower after a flight, which is perfect because you can wash the mask out when you arrive. Traveling always dries my skin and hair out so I think it is crucial to bring along a hair mask. 


I feel like I ALWAYS forget my sunglasses on a trip. It is extremely inconvenient for obvious reasons like the sun. But, it is also annoying because I like wearing my sunglasses on the plane if I am trying to nap or be unbothered. 

Portable Charger 

You never know when you are going to get into a pinch with a low battery. When traveling I like to keep a portable charger nearby in case of emergency. I have had to use it in emergency situations multiple times so this has become a staple to packing. 


Cash is king. In today’s society, it may seem less important or even inconvenient to bring cash along. However, I think it is so important to keep a little cash in your wallet. You never know what type of situation you are going to get yourself in and when you are going to need to have cash handy. When I first started to travel alone my Dad pulled me aside and sat me down. He explained to me why it is important to have cash and he introduced me to “slimy”. A slimmy was what my Dad called the special $100 bill that stays in the wallet for emergencies. It gets

folded in a very specific way and gets tucked away in your wallet in case you are ever in a pinch and need cash. You bet that I have a slimy on me at all times!
