My Travel Bags

Aug 2, 2021

We are back from a wonderful week long family vacation. It is always the best to reconnect with family and just slow down for a few days. Lots of chaos with all the kids but also so many wonderful memories made! I wanted to share a few of my favorite smaller travel bags that I always travel with. I don’t travel lightly-haha so there are a few bags! Each of these serves a different purpose and I love them all.

Jewelry Travel Case | This jewelry case is a great size. I stack bracelets and larger earrings in the bottom but you can also use the bottom to hang necklaces as well. you can store rings in the side pocket and hang smaller earrings up top. Lots of options. It comes in so many colors and monogram choices.

SLY Beauty Case | I mention this case often because I love it so much. It is awesome for packing taller beauty and hair items because you can stand them up straight. Especially great for shampoo and conditioner. It has a removable cylinder to store brushes and a zippered side for tweezers and smaller items. It is easy to clean as well.

White Elephant Cosmetic Case Duo | I have the two set of this toiletry case in the green color. I keep the smaller sized one in my purse with makeup and use the larger one when I travel for skincare and make-up. They come in so many pretty colors and can be monogrammed. It is under $100 for the set of 2 which I think is a steal for nice travel cases.

Monogrammed AirPods Case | This is more a daily essential for me but I love my monogrammed air pod case.

Concourse 2 in 1 Cosmetic Case | I have had this travel set several years now. I tend to use the larger one for skincare, toothbrush, and face products. The smaller one is good for make up brushes if you like to keep them separated.

Acrylic Make-Up Caddy | If I am driving somewhere to travel I just bring this make up caddy with me. It keeps my makeup organized and is just so easy to tote. Would not work for flying but great for driving, also just one of my favorite Amazon purchases.

Paravel Weekender Tote | This remains one of my favorite travel totes. It is a great carry on for flying because it easily fits undertone seat. It has top handles or a strap to carry. Also comes in black as well.

    Paravel weekender –
    Are you able to use that as your “personal item” and then also have a carry on suitcase when you fly? I am trying not to have to check any bags for a week long trip to Costa Rica after Christmas with my husband and 3 teenage boys, at their request – but I don’t know if I can do it. BUT if that can be my personal item PLUS a small suitcase/carry on…….
