After years of traveling for business, I now travel for fun and a little for business. Over the years, I have learned what works and what doesn’t.  Here is a curated collection of my must-have travel essentials that come with me on every trip, no matter how long I am gone. These items have stood the test of time and are the items I never leave home without. Here are my top seven essential travel items:

  1. Away Carry-On Luggage: Full disclosure: I won this luggage in a giveaway but it’s become my go to luggage. It’s now lasted longer than any of my other travel pieces, and it’s in great shape. You can say goodbye to luggage mishaps with the Away Carry-On. This luggage is durable, has a compartmentalized inner system, spinner wheels, and it’s lightweight which makes it a standout piece for hassle-free travel. Trust me, it’s worth the investment.
  2. TRVL Design Bags: This company has excellent bags in various shapes, sizes, and prints. These bags are essential items I never leave home without because packing perfection is achievable with TRVL Design bags. You can use the packing cubes to organize clothes by day or event. They keep everything neatly separated and maximize luggage space. Plus, the smaller sizes are perfect for keeping my cords, makeup, and lotions organized. I never leave home without these TRVL Design bags.
  3. Rydir Band: This band has been on my essential travel item list for years. You never have to worry about your purse or carry-on slipping off your luggage again. This is definitely an item you want to take with you on every trip. The Rydir Band is a simple yet genius solution that keeps everything securely in place during airport dashes, and they now come in various fun colors. You can pick one that fits your vibe.

  4. Keep Your Cadence Capsules: Once you try these capsules, you will wonder why you didn’t try them sooner. I will admit the Keep Your Cadence capsules are pricier than most travel essentials but they are worth every penny and I don’t leave home without them because I know I never have to worry about anything leaking. These are essential travel items because they are refillable, come in various sizes, are TSA compliant, and are customizable to your needs. Did I mention these containers are leak-proof!? You can use these capsules for everything from pills to toiletries. They’ve got you covered.
  5. Leather Cable Organizers: I found a set of these while I was on vacation somewhere, but they were quickly added to my travel essentials, which I never leave home without. Say goodbye to tangled cords with these leather cable organizers. You can use these lightweight leather organizers to keep your charging cords tidy, untangled, and easily accessible. It’s a game-changer when I am looking for specific charging cords, and it helps keep everything organized in the TRVL Design pouches.
  6. Clare V. Petite Moyen Bag: Versatility meets style with the Clare V. Petite Moyen Bag. This is a new addition to my essential travel items, which I never leave home without. Typically, I travel with a large tote that fits my computer and all the things. The struggle is that when I arrive at my destination, I don’t necessarily want to carry a large tote. The Clare V. Petite Moyen Bag quickly became an essential item because it takes up hardly any room in my luggage, it packs flat, and I can use it as a small clutch, a shoulder bag, or a crossbody. It’s really the perfect companion for any adventure.
  7. Oh! Mega Milk Fermented Barrier Boosting Facial Oil: I don’t know about you, but traveling takes a toll on my skin. Since I added the Oh! Mega Milk Facial Oil to my list of essential travel items it’s been a game changer. No matter where my travels take me, I only need to add a few drops of the Oh! Mega Milk Facial Oil and it keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized.

Traveling should be fun and headache-free, and by adding these essential items to your travel list, I hope you’ll be ready for any adventure that comes your way. Bon voyage!
