Wish List: Chic Travel Essentials

For me, the past two months have looked like MDW > SEA > MDW > EWR > MDW > ORD > LAX > ORD > MDW > CVG > MDW > ORD > BUF > ORD... phew! All this travel has me eyeing a few accessories that make packing and flying so much easier.


This post contains affiliate links, but all opinions are 100% my own. I would never suggest a product that I wouldn't want to buy myself :)

QuietComfort® 35 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Bluetooth® Headphones II - Ok, so this one is a bit of a splurge and a total wish list item, but once you try these headphones you won't be able to travel the same way again. My husband has these, and I'm always super jealous of him when we fly. You don't realize how loud airplane sounds really are until you have these babies to tune them out.

Kate Spade Wash & Wear Lingerie Bag Set - Easily keeps things organized and in one place...no more fishing around your suitcase for little odds 'n ends.

Vera Bradley Blush & Brush Makeup Case - I'm a bit of a germaphobe when it comes to travel (and life), so keeping my makeup brushes clean is key. This bag has an exterior compartment for brushes to keep them separate from your makeup kit. It's also lined with laminated cotton, so you can quickly wipe it down between uses.

Beautyblender Blendercleanser® Solid - Continuing on the germaphobe theme and keeping makeup brushes clean, this solid cleanser is a must (i.e., TSA friendly). I use it even when I'm not traveling. I also use the Beautyblender air.port.pro to tote my beautyblender around when it's still damp.

Mason vegan travel satchel and Henri Bendel Weekender Bag - I never know what to do with my shoes when I travel. They're clunky, dirty, and need their own space. These weekender bags are a great solution with bottom-zip compartments and plenty of space.
