My Favorite Things: Travel Edition

You've probably seen on Instagram or Facebook that we've been overseas in Britain and France for about two weeks now! We've been having such a fun time, just returning from a wine tour of the Bordeaux region, and moving into a few days in Paris to end our trip. Blog posts soon to come!

But for now, I'm so excited to share with you a few of my must-have items for travel. I've had the wonderful opportunity to travel a lot - both domestically and overseas. Every experience has taught me new tips and tricks for travel, including what to bring (and what to leave at home!). Check out my must-have items below!

Does anyone else get incredibly dehydrated while traveling? Especially on long international flights, I'm so guilty of forgetting to drink water. This trip we've been dealing with really high heats and limited air conditioning, which is not a great combo! I love to bring my S'well bottle with me, because it's sturdy and doesn't leak. There is seriously nothing worse than a leaky water bottle in your bag, so that's a big deal to me! These keep your water cold for a long time too, and I love that.

I love the Jewelry Snug case for travel! It rolls up and doesn't take a lot of space, but I feel confident that any jewelry I take along will be safe. The inner compartment is great for earrings, because it keeps each pair separate. My very favorite part is the plastic "sheets" for bracelets and necklaces. Each sheet has two plastic sides that stick to each other, so not only do your items stay safe - necklaces and bracelets don't get tangled during transport. Ain't nobody got time to sit there and untangle knotted necklaces. Pure genius! The basic jewelry snug comes with two sheets, which for me is plenty, but you can also buy extra sheets if need be. I will seriously not travel without this!

I'm very selective in my perfume, and I'm not about to leave my favorite scents at home while I travel. But I also don't want to take a big bottle that will take up room and/or be above the TSA limit if I'm only taking a carry-on. That's why I love that Jo Malone sells small 1 oz perfume bottles are perfect for travel. Jo Malone is my favorite perfume brand, and Red Roses is my absolute favorite scent (I wore it for my wedding!). It's so happy and smells like a literal rose garden. I get so many compliments every time I wear it!

Rowenta Xcel Steam Travel DR7051 Hand-Held Garment Steamer Size, Dual-Voltage, Purple
It's no secret that I love dresses, and that doesn't change when I travel! But there is nothing worse than taking a wrinkled dress out of your suitcase. I recently discovered this travel steamer, and it works like a charm! On this trip I've used it on my dresses, but also on a lot of Charlotte's clothes that got wrinkled. It's so quick and easy to use which is a definite plus. It's just big enough that it might be tricky if you're only using a carry-on, but it's been a life-saver on this trip!
