Travel is one of my favorite things to do. I’ve learned, though, that you have to travel smart and bring the right stuff. So for “Tips Tuesday” I wanted to share with you my 5 travel essentials! From road trips to flights across the country, these items have really come in handy to help me make trips with ease.

1.) Parka in a Pocket

I can’t really say enough about this jacket! I like traveling light and this works so well considering it all folds down into one small pocket! I’ve also found the pocket is even great to use as a little pillow for your head! I got mine in black and find it to be very flattering and fashionable. It’s great for when you might encounter chilly or rainy days and doesn’t take up much space in your bag.

2.) Blanket Scarf

This is another item I’ve learned I can’t live without! I had gotten one for Christmas and it is the loveliest, coziest thing I travel with. While it’s fashionable and cozy to keep you warm, it also makes a wonderful travel blanket! Forget that paper-thin airline blanket! I’ve even been known to nap on the couch with this thing. It’s very lightweight, but does a wonderful job keeping me warm!

3.) Justin Portal Battery Charger
Forget having to find an outlet in a packed airport! This little guy packs a powerful punch when it comes to recharging your electronic devices. It has 3 ports! I can charge our cell phones and ipad all at once! It’s small enough to carry in my purse or carry-on bag. I find myself using it when I know I won’t be anywhere near power outlets and it has served me very well!

4.) Personal Care Emergency Kit

These things are the cutest, little emergency kits I’ve ever seen! They come in a variety of specialties including one for bridesmaids, brides and honeymoons! From a needle and thread to pain-reliever and lip balm, these make the smallest of inconveniences a little simpler. Believe me, I’ve slept in enough airports to know that sometimes these things are necessary to survive and thrive in odd travel situations.


5.) Contigo Water Bottle with Clip

Staying hydrated on the go is so important! Taking my own water bottle has also saved me quite a bit of money! It’s amazing how much they charge for a bottle of water at the airport these days. Plus, the clip on the top allows me to clip it to my carry-on so that it’s accessible, but not in my hand the whole time.

Those are my top 5 go-to things! What about you? What are some of your travel necessities? Do any of these look like they may be able to make your travel life any easier?


  • I love blanket scarfs or any huge scarfs in general, the softer the better. They are so perfect for travelling and I often bring one for the plane even in the summer because I always feel cold on the plane. I yes, I also always drink lots of water to keep hydrated during the flight.

  • Some great and gorgeous tip for travel. Those very important and very useful for travel. And more importantly also very light and multifunction used. Absolutely love it. xo

  • I always take my wool socks to the plane. I’d die without them haha. Also, I’ve got this little soft toy animal I carry around. It’s my good luck toy, just in case the plane happens to crash or something (yeah I’m kind of scared of flying…)

  • They are all really essentials! I always carry a blanket scarf with me, I want to feel warm during my trips. As for the water, I prefer buying on the way, at least while traveling on my country bottle water is very cheap.

  • Yοu mean like ᧐nce we sin rеward songs in Church??
    Latry asked and daddy noɗded. ?Effectively I cann makе up a worship song.?
    So Laгry jumped to his fset and startеd tⲟ make սp a
    song to a very bbad tune. ?Jesus is ѕo cool.

    Its еnjoyable being with God. He iis the funnest
    God anybody may have.? Larry szng very badly so Lee
    had put his handѕ over hіs ears.

  • I抦 impressed, I need to say. Actually not often do I encounter a weblog that抯 each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient individuals are talking intelligently about. I’m very glad that I stumbled across this in my seek for something regarding this.
