Packing the Perfect Carry-on

I loathe packing – I never know what I want to bring and am a notorious over-packer.  I’ve vowed on this next trip I would get my act together!

Today starts the official one week countdown till I touchdown in London town.  I’m so excited to go back to one of my favorite cities for a much needed vacation with girlfriends.  Since it’s a long flight so packing the perfect carry-on is a must.  I’ve included my essentials and a few tips below for your next trip.

First, lay out all of the things you need to pack so you don’t forget anything…

  1. Travel documents
  2. Snacks
  3. Tablet filled with movies and/or TV shows
  4. Over sized scarf
  5. Make-up and toiletries
  6. Headphones
  7. Reading materials
  8. Chargers
  9. Change of clothes
  10. Jewelry/valuables

Travel items


Tip #1:

Utilize smaller pouches and bags to help you organize everything from your chords for charging to your toiletries.

Tip #2:

Pack the things you don’t need to get to right away at the bottom of your bag.  Sounds obvious, but I’ve been guilty of digging around in my bag having a panic attack that I’ve forgotten my passport.

Tip #3:

Sit back and relax.  I’ve discovered these adorable Carry On Cocktail Kits and they are fantastic for travel.  They have everything you need to craft a delicious cocktail in one cute container – all you need to do is purchase the booze.
