Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.
As many of you know, I am on vacation this week. My favorite part of the year, Colorado time! I thought this would be a great time to show you some of my traveling essentials when it comes to vacation or extensive traveling. I could write you a book of all the items I brought with because I’m one of those over packers, it’s a habit I refuse to quit. Let’s just focus on two of my main bags I bring with me: my go-to bag (essentially a carry on) and my beauty necessity bag.
My go-to bag, as I like to refer to it because we are driving instead of flying to Colorado, is kind of a catch all for my important goodies. These are items I can’t live without, at least not for too long! The obvious items would be my laptop and phone. Those two items will help me get through the 10 hour car ride! Of course, I pack the chargers for both of these items, however I do like to throw in my portable phone charger. This definitely comes in handy out in the mountains where reception is spotty and secretly draining my battery. Packing a selfie stick is also a must for those great views! My small arms can barely get myself in a photo, let alone myself and a mountain. Knowing the destination, I’ll throw in a travel container of both sunscreen and bug spray. I’ll be sure to pack a pair of headphones, sunglasses, my keys, and wallet. And finish off with some items such as perfume, concealer, mascara, etc. for small touch ups when we arrive.
As for my beauty necessity bag, this is packed with all kinds of things I find myself reaching for on a daily basis. I’ve learned, the hard way, what items I simply cannot leave the house without! Take a look and maybe this list will help you to not forget anything you may need!
- Nail Clippers
- Nail File
- Eye Drops

I hope this helps you figure out what is worth bringing along and what can stay home. Safe travels to you all this summer!
