As a professional traveler, I take to the skies at least once a month for work. After having traveled regularly for over a year now, I have found what works best for me, and what I can probably leave behind. There are several products I use religiously, like my Lotion Bag from Vera Bradley (which holds full-size hair products!), that never leave my suitcase. I only unpack my clothes and a few beauty items that I use at home between trips for ease; everything else I have bought 2 of to minimize the packing each month! If you’re about to embark on a longer trip or are lucky enough to travel frequently (be it for work or pleasure!) then this is most definitely a post you’ll want to save & shop. While there are a few more luxury-priced items that I have splurged on, I have also included more affordable options of the same products. Let’s get you packed.
- Compartmented Makeup Bag
- Hot Hair Tools Case
- Wireless Magnetic Phone Charger
- Phone Holder
- Personalized Packing Pouches
- Packing Cubes

- Washable Laundry Bags
- Adjustable Travel Pillow
When it comes to purchasing a checked, full-size suitcase, I personally prefer to use Samsonite hard-top luggage. I have had my suitcase for almost a year and check it monthly at the airport; other than a few scratches it’s in perfect shape. You shop my exact suitcase here. …speaking of checked bags
Travel Professional Pro-Tip: Every time I check my suitcase I hold my breath til I see it on the baggage claim carousel at my destination! While it has yet to happen to me, I always worry about it getting lost! The only solution to ease my mind was to purchase an Apple Airtag to slip into my suitcase; from the moment it’s out of your sight you can easily track your luggage right on your phone! This way, even if by chance the airline does lose your luggage, you can tell them exactly where it is & get it quickly on its way back to you! Purchase one here or grab a four-pack for the family right here.
Safe & Happy Travels!
