In the spirit of my next weekend getaway I am sharing my favourite travel essentials this season. With early flights, jam packed days of meetings and conferences, it's important to have easy transition items when running around town. This trip to Chicago will feature some of my go-tos and a few new discoveries for fall. Nunuco Design Company Passport Holder I am loving these new passport holders from Nunuco Design Company. I shared their phone cases a couple months back, but since then the brand has expanded into awesome lifestyle products like notebooks, agendas and passport holders. Their cute yet stylish hand painted prints translate perfectly to passports, especially this design made for any travel bug.
Tilley Felt Hat The heritage brand Tilley has most recently launched new fashion hats. Their collection this season features lots of grey, burgundy and of course black felt. The styles are perfect for travel when we need the extra accessory to throw on and look chic (even for a 6am flight). Check out their new collection online or instores!
Everything Birch Box Ever sad that your favourite discovery from BirchBox is only sample size? Think again when it comes to travel, BirchBox goodies are the perfect companion for your luggage. They are not only carry on appropriate, but for those like me who don’t pack lightly, they won’t weigh down a checked baggage either. For a weekend trip, we don’t need more than these sizes, so make sure to pack all your favourite finds from BirchBox this trip and leave some extra room for shopping goodies.
Frends Earphones It's no surprise here that these are on my weekend travel essential list. I have had these earphones for a while now and they have always been my go to for traveling. With great sound and exterior noise blocking, they work wonders when there are loud noises on the plane. They also look awesome!
The seasons hottest magazines … like ELLE or Glamour or Vogue. Pick your poison, just make sure you bring what will keep you entertained and of course inspired during long waits at the airport. This month's ELLE has great fashion tips and of course the beautiful Selena Gomez
The perfect side bag for gallivanting around your destination Let's be honest, once you’ve landed in your destination and dropped of your giant bag at the hotel, you have no interest in lugging anything more than your wallet and cellphone around your destination. Make sure to pack your favourite side bag (that matches with the most of your outfits). This way you can run around hands free as you discover the ins and outs of your end point and anything in between. My go to is my Gucci disco bag. The colour matches with all seasons and pretty much all of my wadrobe.
A transition lipstick Packing a lipstick that you love and can wear from day to night is key when traveling. I’m a big fan of Armani lipsticks. The one I am loving right now is a purple/blue that goes on a lot lighter than it seems. It brings out your blue tones (for those with light eyes) and cuts red tones, key for early morning go times.
A day to night time piece I fell in love with Minimalist Watches right away. These unisex time pieces are practical, well priced and fashion forward. I love my silver hardwear and brown strap for this season, and on the road you'll be able to stay punctual and stylish!
The perfect little lens camera My all time favourite camera, my Samsung NX300M that not only takes incredible pictures, but is also travel size appropriate is a must for any entrepreneur, blogger or just picture enthusiast.
A blowout My last but not least must have travel essential is a blowout. This saves you so much time while traveling. I like to get a blowout the the day before if I am traveling early. No need to worry or stress about your hair in the morning and you are good to go for the entire day. Look up great dry bars near where you are staying and you can get a blowout on you trip as well to cut time and ease your schedule!
