With the Holidays coming up, most of you will be hitting the road; I’m already on the road, as I happen to be blogging in the car. The wonders of technology! Traveling doesn’t have to be dreaded when you can JETSET in style and comfort and comfort doesn’t necessarily mean wearing your most comfiest sweats and looking your absolute worst! Whether you’re booking a flight for a fun getaway or making plans for a visit, you can definitely do it with style! I’ve been on the hunt for the best fashionable and travel friendly essentials for every budget with the exception of one or two splurges! I’m always on the go and I have everything from dry skin, to aero-sinusitis (most painful thing in the world), so I have everyone covered!
1. NICOLE MILLER Taylor Collection 28-Inch Spinner $81.99
I have this in hot pink with gold hardware and I don't even have the heart to check it in because it's soo beautiful and check baggage gets ruined! Luckily, it is very affordable!
2. TORY BURCH Robinson PEBBLED PASSPORT CASE $125.00
This passport holder is great because it isn't a cover for the passport, which is what I originally had and TSA makes you take it out of the holder every time. This has a slot for your passport, which you can just slide right out and it includes a penholder and several slots for cards, it’s a stylish, convenient way to stay organized while traveling.
3. REBECCA MINKOFF Luggage Tag with Studs $65.00
How cute and stylish is this luggage tag? It's the best one I was able to find and I am in LOVE with it! Since I live in Istanbul, everytime I travel to the U.S, which is very often, I leave with 4-5 huge luggages! So, I definetely can't buy 4-5 of these but this is great for my domestic travels and hopefully for my Europe tour, which I hope to go on after the New Years.
4. FRENDS with Benefits 'Taylor' Headphones $199.99
Can headphones get anymore gorgeous? Anything gold is beautiful, so you definitely can't go wrong with these and the best part is — they aren't bulky!
5. MIU MIU Cat's-Eye Sunglasses $415.00
Bring out your inner Miranda Kerr with these beauties! I've been lusting on these for a while and I finally splurged and they are BEAUTIFUL! Who travels without sunglasses anyway? It's definitely an essential! If you think these leopards are too catty for you, they come in other colors!
6. BURBERRY Check Print Sneaker $265.00
Who says sneakers have to be ugly? These are stylish and comfortable and the best part is they match with almost any color! You can also dress down or dress up these beauties with almost any outfit! These sneakers are the perfect travel sneaker for the stylish jetsetter!
7. LILLY PULITZER 'Jungle Tumble' iPhone Charger $34.00
This is handy for anyone because we all have times when our battery hits 10%. This portable charger is cute and not bulky at all like all the other chargers! For those who don't have an iPhone, make the switch already!
8. FLIGHT 001 'Sorry, We're Closed' Sleep Mask $16.00
This is a soft, cushy eye mask that blocks light so you can sleep on long flights or car rides while making it clear that you don't want to be bothered!
9. BOSCHIA Green Tea Blotting Linens $10.00
These sheets are simply a miracle and I always have them in my purse. They are essential for the longer flights or car rides, they absorb the excess oil perfectly without smearing or smudging your makeup.
10. SEPHORA COLLECTION Luxe Combo Travel Brush $15.00
Don't be deceived by its size! This brush works wonders —even on long hair! I throw this in my bag and it doesn't even take up any space and when I'm traveling I don't even bother packing my large brush!
11. FIRST AID BEAUTY Ultra Repair Cream $12.00
First of all, whether you are traveling or not, everyone should have one of these handy! When I am traveling especially on the 11 hour flight from Istanbul to NY, my skin dries up and this is my life saver! No carry-on bag should be with-out this travel sized tube of hand cream!
12. FLIGHT 001 Go Clean Laundry Bag $22.00
Don't know where to put your dirty laundry when traveling? Now you do! This is made to keep your dirty laundry away from your clean clothes while you travel, the heavyweight nylon material bag helps to prevent the spread of dirt and odor in your suitcase.
13. EVIAN Mineral Water Spray Duo To Go $14.00
When I first purchased these, I was on a huge line in Sephora and it was one of those items that they put by the lines and I just grabbed it because I thought it might be useful; didn't really know what it was for. Terrible right? Well it turned out that it was a great buy! This is TSA approved and it is a perfect spritz of freshness! I use it during my flights when my skin starts drying up this leaves your skin hydrated and refreshed. Also, a quick beauty secret of mine; I spritz it on my foundation brush and my foundation just glides right on my skin, resulting in a smooth and uneven face!
14. EARPLANES Flight Earplugs $4.99
I have something called aero-sinusitis aka barotrauma and it is the most painful thing ever! If you are wondering what it is, it is a painful inflammation and sometimes bleeding of the membrane of the paranasul sinus cavities, normally the frontal sinus. It is caused by a difference in air pressure inside and outside the cavities. When I first experienced it I thought I was having a brain haemorrhage, because I had no idea what was happening to me. It always happens when the airplane starts descending for initial landing. It feels like my eye is getting poked with a hundred needles, literally! I didn't have to goto the doctor thanks to the wonders of GOOGLE and I figured out what I had and with extensive research I found myself a temporary cure, I don't really think there is a permanent one because I have chronic sinusitis. These earplanes really work and hopefully you don't have anything extreme like I do, but if you have ear discomfort, clogging and popping during your flight, these earplanes can alleviate these symptoms. Now, if you have a cold or sinuses or are feeling stuffy, I recommend you goto the pharmacy and get yourself some Sudafed because the earplanes alone will not help you, together they block all symptoms of aero-sinusitis!
