A Glimpse into...

...my travel bag! Anyone who's been around here for a while knows how much I love to travel. I definitely travel around the US frequently for races, bachelorette parties, weddings and to visit family and friends. After living in Pittsburgh last year, I traveled even more since I had to fly to simply get home. Oh and go ahead and add travelling for work in there too! Now, I'm no expert traveler. I don't jump on a plane every week and fly around the world. But, I do travel a lot. More than some people I know. And I love it. Since I'll be leaving on a jet plane in just two days {Sin City here I come!}, I thought it would be fun to share with you what I keep in my travel bag! No I'm not going to go through my suitcase with you. I'm talking about my carry on tote. Gotta have stuff to do while you're in the air!

Now if you ask me, a female traveler needs a good tote bag or brief case {I traveled with a brief case whenever I was carrying my laptop!}. I like totes because you can throw everything in there! They're especially nice when you're also carrying on your luggage because you can put a small purse or clutch in a tote if needed. Here's the actual tote I'll be bringing this weekend!

I have a few a ton of Victoria's Secret totes that I've received free with specific purchases over the years. I'm not gunna lie, I love them! Of course I would love something leather, preferably designer and super pretty; however, I prefer spending money on plane tickets :) Besides, it's what's inside the bag that counts!

  • Magazine: Something easy to flip through while you're waiting at the airport or in the air. I am obsessed with time so I am always early to my flights. I'd rather be waiting around than rushing to catch my plane!
  • Kindle: A good book goes a long way! If you have something good to read, this can easily pass the time.
  • iPhone & headphones: iPhones have games and music - perfect combo! Headphones are especially nice when you have little ones around you or obnoxiously loud talkers in the row behind you.
  • Camera: Where I go, my camera goes! You never know what great pictures you'll snap. Besides, I'd rather have it with me than in my luggage!
  • Water bottle: My Camelbak is my lifesaver. I am a big water drinker. I easily get my recommended 64 oz a day and some. Bringing along my Camelbak {empty of course} allows me to save money on buying overly priced water bottles at the airport. I just fill mine up at the water fountain. Some people are opposed to water fountains, but quite frankly, it doesn't bother me a bit.
  • Makeup bag: I always bring a few necessities along with me just in case. If my luggage gets lost, I'd like to have some powder, mascara, eye liner, etc. Not to mention, it's nice to touch up after you get off a plane. I always feel grungy after a day of travel!
  • Chapstick: Must have at all times. Enough said.
  • Gum: Sensitive ears anyone? This girl does and chewing gum during take off and landing helps a bit.
  • Snacks: I have this strange fear of being hungry and not being able to eat something that I want. Kind of weird. I'm a picky eater especially now with my crazy allergies. I keep snacks with me all the time. I have some in my work desk, my purse, etc. Larabars are the perfect go to snack! I love them :)

So what about you? What's in your travel bag? Am I missing something? 

Hope y'all have a wonderful Tuesday! It's like my Thursday - not to rub it in!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
