A friend at work recently told me about her great Bendel travel bags and I’m obsessed! The set comes with three bags – one for laundry, lingerie and shoes – inside another reusable dust bag. So, you you really get four travel bags for $38. I think I’ll use them forever – so timeless and handy!
Those of you who know me, know that I’m always on the go. Between work and personal travel, I’m usually gone half the year (maybe I’m exaggerating, but it sure feels like it!). This year I’ve discovered some things to make life a lot easier – hopefully they’ll help you, too!
During my collegiate years I was always known as a light-packer. I’m not sure when things changed, but over the past couple of years I really started to over-pack. Things changed this summer, though. My luggage was lost on the way to Greece and I resolved to never check a bag again. So far it’s made life a lot easier. Whether you’re gone for two weeks or two days, you can make do with the space in a roll-aboard bag.
I’ve been using this LL Bean toiletry bag for the past couple of years. It’s full of handy pockets for all of my necessities, and if something spills, I just take the entire thing into the shower and wash it out. It dries out over night and I’m back on the road.
Goodbye, leaky shampoo containers. Hello, GoToob! I recently found these amazing little containers in Las Vegas. They’re a little spendy, but worth every penny.
When I’m on vacation I read a lot – usually a book a day. Needless to say, I’ve been hauling stacks of books all over the world with me for years. This summer I finally broke down and bought an e-reader. It’s made life so much easier. I can’t believe I waiting so long.
I’ve been buying $5 pashminas off the street in New York for years. They are truly an essential in my wardrobe. I’ve recently learned that they double as a fantastic blanket on airplanes. Now I carry them with me wherever I go – never to be cold again!
