Perfectly-Sized Travel Essentials for Fall {Update}

Fall is here! Yes! That means our amazing wardrobe is finally allowed to come out for wonderful showcasing. The boots, scarves, the hats — oh! the hats — tights, and coats. So much to get excited about. For me fall also means an intense travel schedule. I’ve already done quite a bit this year but my major, more exciting trips are yet to come.
I’m finally planning and pining down my dates for Europe, but first, I’m stopping in St. Thomas and Jamaica later this month! In my constant research and need to have some of the latest essentials to make my travel more convenient (and chic!), I came across these few that I’m certain will make my 9 day trip a comfy one.


A bag this size can double as a weekender but also a great carry-on for taking all the things you need on flight… I’m a huge advocate for taking one change of clothes… one great, but casual look, just in case your checked luggage doesn’t make it on time. Oh yeah, that’s happened to me several times, most inconveniently in Paris.

This super-fresh bag by Aerin has enough space to pack gear for 3 days of light staples. I’m seeing it with me at the beaches of the Caribbean at the end of this month… and then again as my “purse” for my Euro trip — for the magazines, makeup bag, over ear heads, etc.. I’ll still take carry-on suit case. That’s for what didn’t fit in checked luggage!


We all have different needs, but there are basics we take on each trip, right? I have my go-to toiletry bag but I switch it out depending on where I’m going and for how long. Considering this particular trip which is a bit longer than my usual press trips but shorter than a proper vacation, these’ll do the job of keeping me in tact.

Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Beaty Drops. These little capsules for reviving the face are perfect for chucking in the bag and taking with you. After you’ve washed your face with the brush, apply this wild arctic cloudberry super-packed capsule  They’re made for 28 day regiment so just remember to pull them out of your bag once you’re home. I’m on day 6 so I’ll come back let you know bright and smoother my face really is. For now, I love the simplicity of it.

You’d think I’d get more sleep on vacation or the press trips I take, but not so much. On the go, go, go keep me tired most times. And looking it, too, the next day. So I love taking an eye illuminator wherever I go. I use on at home, but my new Erno Laszlo luminous eye complex (gel) is the best thing to happen to my eyes, yet. It’s perfectly sized for travel and actually brightens my eyes when I’m most exhausted. I did have to try it for a god 3 weeks to see a good difference. But it does the trick.

EOS chapstick. Admit it. These are super cute. I have 4 and rotate tops and bottoms, depending on my mood. They’re the most playful way of keeping your lips hydrated. A bit bulky, I think, but I just love them. And clearly, so does J.Lo. Did you see a pink one in her ‘Booty’ video. Oh. wow.

I’ve become such a germaphobe over the last 3 years, I’m actually a bit concerned. I wash my hands every time I enter and leave a place and more OCD is wiping down everything, especially on a plane.  As such, I have all kinds of cleansing wipes on me at all times. Been trying out these GUD by Burt’s Bees ones and I love. Different scents will keep you guiltless while you wipe your hands clean of the guck you didn’t know you touched on that restaurant chair. I’m telling you! It’s bad. These come in so handy when I want to wipe down anything.

Clarisonic facial brush. Where has this been my whole adult life?! No, seriously? This little thing here is joy to my skin. After days of beating my face in the sun (mostly in Mexico when I go) and the elements of busy cities, the new Mia 2 electronic brush strips away all the dirt, guck, and impurities that cause break outs and an aged look. After 3 uses, I’m in love. And it comes with a travel case to protect both the bristles and the brush. It’s my new best beauty friend. Go grab yourself one and take anytime, anywhere.

L’Occitane Roll-on Relaxant. This beats any kind of sleeping pill. The stress of traveling always requires some mental down time before starting the next day; even if you’re on vacation. Apply a bit of this lavender-infused oil on your wrist or decollatage at night (or throughout the day) and you’ll be sweetly dreaming. I like pairing it with a candle (love traveling with one) as I do my nightly meditation. It smells amazing and puts you in a calm place. And its size allows you to carry anywhere, not just when traveling.

Sun Bum Shorties SPF. Never leave home without SPF. Ever. It should be your best friend. No matter the time of year. No matter your skin type or complexion. Yes darker skins have much more melanin to protect against sun damage, but for everyone else, it’s critical a proper amount of lotion is used. These cute little bottles were made with us travelers in mind. They do the job… protect from sun rays but still allow a tan. I’m all about that tan! But I’m more about protecting my skin… it’s already super sensitive. SPF 15 for non-beach trips. SPF 50 for Mexico.

Artistry Ideal Radiance SPF 50+ Sunscreen
. I swear by this little white thing. This is now my 3rd little bottle from their 3rd line of batty (full review of the new Ideal Radiance line coming). But these itty bitty 1 oz. bottles of glory are it. I literally apply to my face and neck every morning. And it stays in my travel bag. This is permanent.

Shaving cream… not really an essential but if you’re into using cream and gels for shaving, these are perfect for traveling. This little duo by ShaveworksGet Smooth comes with the cream which is super duper creamy and pearly and the cooling gel reduces the redness. My SIL gets in-grown hair so I’m can’t wait to give it to her.

Earphones. Really. Who travels without earphones? I love talking to my flight neighbor, you know the person sitting next to you that has a story to tell — but when I want to work or sleep, pulling out earphones is the all-tell sign “please do not disturb.” For long distance, I like over the ear heads, but for quick flights and shorter trips, ear plug types are great. Loving on these new Sol Republic two-towned JAX pair. I go through earphones like socks… they get lost but I’m determined to keep these close to me. And I love they don’t tangle so I can use them while running. A bit pricey for $150 at RadioShack, especially since they don’t come with a case, but the sound quality beats the ‘Beats by Dre‘ I rocked all last year. And good sound is key!

So many other essentials I could list, but since I’m literally trying out stuff for these amazing upcoming trips, these are some fun new finds for fall. Even for overnight fishing trips, which I love taking, these make sense.

  14. I have learned result-oriented things by your site. One other thing I would like to say is newer pc os’s are inclined to allow extra memory to use, but they as well demand more ram simply to function. If your computer is unable to handle much more memory and the newest software package requires that ram increase, it might be the time to shop for a new Computer system. Thanks

  15. Along with almost everything that appears to be developing throughout this specific subject matter, all your viewpoints tend to be rather radical. Nevertheless, I appologize, because I do not give credence to your whole idea, all be it refreshing none the less. It looks to me that your opinions are actually not totally justified and in fact you are generally your self not completely certain of your point. In any case I did appreciate reading through it.

  16. The heart of your writing while appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not really settle perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I however have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do nicely to help fill in those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I could surely be fascinated.

  17. A further issue is that video games are usually serious as the name indicated with the principal focus on studying rather than fun. Although, it has an entertainment facet to keep your kids engaged, each game is often designed to work with a specific expertise or curriculum, such as math concepts or technology. Thanks for your write-up.

  18. One thing I’ve noticed is the fact that there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the financial institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosures. One misconception in particular is the bank prefers to have your house. The lending company wants your hard earned cash, not your home. They want the funds they gave you along with interest. Keeping away from the bank will only draw the foreclosed summary. Thanks for your write-up.

  19. The very crux of your writing while appearing agreeable at first, did not work very well with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I however have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do well to fill in those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I would surely be amazed.

Your writing is definitely really powerful and this is most likely why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can see the leaps in reason you make, I am not certain of how you appear to unite your ideas which produce the actual conclusion. For now I will, no doubt yield to your issue but hope in the future you connect your dots much better.

  22. It is my belief that mesothelioma will be the most fatal cancer. It’s got unusual properties. The more I look at it a lot more I am certain it does not react like a real solid human cancer. In case mesothelioma is usually a rogue viral infection, so there is the probability of developing a vaccine along with offering vaccination to asbestos uncovered people who are really at high risk with developing potential asbestos relevant malignancies. Thanks for discussing your ideas about this important health issue.

  23. Thanks for giving your ideas. I’d also like to state that video games have been ever before evolving. Technology advances and inventions have aided create practical and enjoyable games. Most of these entertainment video games were not actually sensible when the actual concept was being tried. Just like other kinds of electronics, video games too have had to evolve via many decades. This itself is testimony towards the fast growth of video games.

  24. Thanks for your publication. What I want to point out is that when evaluating a good on the web electronics retail outlet, look for a website with complete information on important factors such as the level of privacy statement, safety measures details, any payment methods, and various terms and policies.

The sickness may start in the chest spot and distribute to other limbs. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include weight reduction, severe respiration trouble, throwing up, difficulty ingesting, and bloating of the face and neck areas. It must be noted that some people living with the disease tend not to experience virtually any serious symptoms at all.

  29. What I have observed in terms of personal computer memory is that there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must fit the features of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is rather current and there are no computer OS issues, changing the memory literally normally takes under a couple of hours. It’s one of several easiest pc upgrade methods one can consider. Thanks for spreading your ideas.

  30. Thanks for your tips about this blog. One thing I would want to say is that often purchasing electronic products items over the Internet is certainly not new. In fact, in the past few years alone, the market for online electronic products has grown a great deal. Today, you could find practically any specific electronic system and product on the Internet, including cameras and also camcorders to computer spare parts and video games consoles.

  31. Good web site! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a great day!

  32. I have seen plenty of useful elements on your site about desktops. However, I’ve the viewpoint that notebook computers are still not quite powerful sufficiently to be a wise decision if you normally do tasks that require many power, for instance video touch-ups. But for web surfing, microsoft word processing, and many other typical computer functions they are perfectly, provided you cannot mind your little friend screen size. Appreciate sharing your opinions.

  33. Together with everything that appears to be building inside this particular subject material, your opinions are actually quite refreshing.

  34. I do enjoy the way you have framed this concern and it does indeed give me a lot of fodder for consideration. On the other hand, through what I have witnessed, I just simply trust as other responses pack on that people continue to be on point and not get started upon a soap box involving some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this fantastic piece and even though I can not necessarily go along with the idea in totality, I regard your point of view.

  35. Thanks for these guidelines. One thing I should also believe is that credit cards featuring a 0 apr often appeal to consumers with zero monthly interest, instant endorsement and easy over-the-internet balance transfers, but beware of the most recognized factor that can void that 0 easy streets annual percentage rate and also throw one out into the terrible house fast.

  36. Thanks for the something totally new you have unveiled in your post. One thing I’d like to touch upon is that FSBO interactions are built over time. By releasing yourself to the owners the first end of the week their FSBO is definitely announced, prior to the masses commence calling on Friday, you make a good relationship. By sending them methods, educational elements, free accounts, and forms, you become an ally. Through a personal curiosity about them and their situation, you develop a solid relationship that, on most occasions, pays off if the owners decide to go with an adviser they know and trust — preferably you actually.

  37. I’ve noticed that credit restoration activity really needs to be conducted with techniques. If not, you are going to find yourself damaging your ranking. In order to be successful in fixing your credit ranking you have to take care that from this instant you pay all of your monthly dues promptly before their timetabled date. Really it is significant since by not really accomplishing that area, all other moves that you will take to improve your credit rating will not be effective. Thanks for giving your tips.

  38. I also believe that mesothelioma cancer is a rare form of melanoma that is commonly found in those previously exposed to asbestos. Cancerous tissue form from the mesothelium, which is a protective lining which covers the vast majority of body’s areas. These cells normally form inside the lining in the lungs, abdominal area, or the sac that encircles one’s heart. Thanks for giving your ideas.

  39. Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is when you are marketing your property all on your own, one of the problems you need to be mindful of upfront is when to deal with household inspection reviews. As a FSBO vendor, the key concerning successfully transferring your property in addition to saving money upon real estate agent profits is knowledge. The more you already know, the smoother your sales effort are going to be. One area that this is particularly vital is inspection reports.

  40. Thanks for your intriguing article. Other thing is that mesothelioma is generally attributable to the inhalation of fibres from asbestos, which is a extremely dangerous material.

It is caused by residing in asbestos covered buildings for a long time of time, Family genes plays a crucial role, and some folks are more vulnerable for the risk when compared with others.

  41. I would also love to add that in case you do not now have an insurance policy otherwise you do not participate in any group insurance, you could well take advantage of seeking the assistance of a health broker. Self-employed or people with medical conditions ordinarily seek the help of an health insurance dealer. Thanks for your short article.
