If there's one thing every experienced travelista shares in common, it's that happy moment when you've finally mastered your travel routine. You've been traveling for long enough to not make rookie mistakes anymore- like planning too much for one trip, forgetting your powerbanks & adapters or overpacking with the wrong things!
Can you relate? Because I definitely can...
It's no secret that I love traveling! But it's also no secret that when you travel, there's a limit on all the lovely things you wanna carry. I've learned with time what things are a must-have and what's plain unnecessary and just takes up my space! When I'm packing, whether it's for work or leisure, I have to include these 5 items that I'm about to share with you. If you wanna know why keep reading!
1. My Favourite Pair of Denim Jeans (or 2!)
Okay, jeans are a MUST when you're traveling simply because you can wear them multiple times without having to wash them. Trust me, you don't wanna be doing laundry on your trip. (Unless of course, it's for an extended period.)
My favourite denim jeans, based on how stylish, comfortable and durable they are, are definitely the DL jeans. #GetItAtKerry
Pro-tip: To save on space in your suitcase or carry-on just wear your jeans as a part of your travel outfit when it's time to depart & one of the greatest things with good denim...no wrinkles!! So no need to worry about looking disheveled when you are leaving the airport.
2. White Shirts
When it comes to the clothing that you're packing, it's also important to select the most versatile pieces to take with you & what's more versatile than a white shirt?! It's the perfect piece to dress down with some sneakers and jeans for a casual look or dress it up with a blazer and heels. This one item can get you 2-3 looks during your trip :) #GetItAtKerry
Okay, so there are a number of beauty items that are must-have travel essentials that I'm sure you've already identified so I won't waste your time by repeating all of those.
I do want to introduce you to Bitchstix, because these little guys have been my latest obsession. I have one with me everywhere I go on a regular day, so you better believe I take one with me when I travel too :)
Bitchstix are lip balms that contain SPF & natural and organic ingredients.
Do you wanna know WHY I love them so much? Their products are cruelty-free, they don't test on animals AND every purchase helps support survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. What's not to love?! #GetItAtKerry
What's your favourite accessory for your smartphone?
If you thought... 'my phone case' or 'Ear Pods', I'm about to change your answer...
Admittedly, this is a new favourite of mine but since I've discovered it I haven't been able to travel without it. Why would I want to anyway?
The bitplay smartphone camera extension is a universal phone accessory that allows you to turn your everyday cellphone into a professional camera (widescreen lens a huge plus!) and I just can't get enough :)
If you think your smartphone takes good pictures now, wait until you attach your bitplay...you won't want to capture those special moments and memories without it! #GetItAtKerry
5. Comfortable shoes
My go-to is a pair of sneakers, or slides...but you can choose whatever works best for you based on your travel destination.
The fact is your errands, shopping or adventures abroad will entail a good amount of walking, so don't make a rookie mistake by not packing for comfort!
I hope this post helped you think twice about how you utilize your limited space! Share your fav travel essential with me! I'd love to hear them :)
Until next time! xoxo
