I LOVE to travel. I travel often for work and travel as much as I can for fun. Whether it’s a business trip with other entrepreneurs, a girls’ trip to the beach with my best friends, or an adventure with my two teenagers, I’m up for it. 

Travel, whether for business or fun, can be stressful. Missed flights, lost luggage, ripped jeans from leaping over a runaway suitcase (yes, that actually happened to me), there are a lot of things that can get in the way of a relaxing travel experience. But, not packing the essentials doesn’t have to be one of those things. 

I’m here to help with a collection of travel essentials to take the guesswork out of packing for your next adventure.

Don’t Forget to Pack These for Your Next Trip 

You’ll be prepared for just about anything – and looking good no matter what – if you pack these essential items.

Carry-Ons, Bags, Totes, and more

Successful packing starts with the right bags! The right bag is roomy enough to fit everything without being bulky or difficult to carry. For me, the best bag looks good, too! 

Whether you’re planning a day at the beach, a weekend getaway, or a cross-country flight, we have the perfect bags for packing all your must-haves.

I like to have choices when I travel. That means bringing earrings, bracelets, and necklaces to add that special something to an outfit. These bags are perfect for keeping my jewelry and my makeup organized and safe from being damaged.

Fun in the Sun 

My favorite vacations always include the beach. And whenever I can manage it, my business trips include the beach, too! That means spending time in the sun and in the water. 

A trip that includes beach or pool time has its own essentials. Whether it’s staying hydrated, recovering from a little too much sun, or looking your best, check out some of our favorite ways to get the most out of your time in the sun.

Take Along Tech 

Have you ever arrived at your destination and realized you forgot your phone charger? Right around the time your phone is about to go dead. 

Packing for a trip of any length means bringing along tech. From chargers to earbuds to portable speakers – you need all of it. And for those lazy days by the beach, you’ll need an e-reader to dive into a juicy romance (not me) or the latest biz book (that’s me).

Taking trips, exploring new places, and having adventures with family and friends. I’m up for all of it! A trip doesn’t have to mean two weeks on a cruise or traveling across the country. It can be a quick weekend away with your best friends or a romantic getaway with your spouse. It can even be a spontaneous day trip with your kids – or by yourself! Whatever travel feeds your soul and your spirit – that’s the trip you need to take. 

When you’re planning your next trip, make sure to take along these travel essentials – you’ll be glad you did! 

Safe and happy travels!
