I’m loving’s new heart covered duffel. It is the perfect size to carry-on the plane or pack up for a quick weekend. When packing for a trip, I load up my iPad with books, magazines, podcasts and music to make travel go by faster. I also bring a travel journal along to chronicle my adventures and keep notes. I pack a healthy snack, like my favorite Dark Chocolate Sea Salt KIND Bar to hold me over until I reach my destination. Air travel can be chilly, so a travel blanket and a pair of fun socks are great ways to keep warm. I’m loving the new Woven Pear socks that feature bright and colorful designs. A rich shea butter hand cream and a facial towel or two are the perfect way to freshen up when you reach your destination.

Now that I have shared my essentials, what are your travel essentials? What do you pack in your carry-on? Be sure to stop by Twin Stripe for more travel, DIY and entertaining ideas.

    I love Flight 001 and Be Kind bars! I still haven’t broken down and bought compression sock yet, something I regret with each international flight!
