I like to think I’ve matured into a light packer slash traveler. It really takes skill (or just some self control) to resist adding that extra bottle of lotion, skip out on a surplus of underwear, and the shoes. Don’t get me started on the shoes.
It was about this time last year when I was traveling throughout Asia and the South Pacific with two massive suitcases filled to point of burst when I realized, less is more. So, I’ve been challenging myself during most recent trips by bringing only essentials. Which, prior to this less-is-more revelation, meant everything.
So if you’ve been following me on Insta (or this blog) you know I’m here in St. Lucia at the moment, and managed to pack one carry-on for seven days! Alright, trivial in the grander scheme of things. I’ll admit, the travel-size bits really make a difference, but I impressed myself.
Anyways, here’s a small glimpse of what’s inside the clutch, inside my travel bag.
This CAMILLE ZARSKY clutch stores all my in-flight essentials
A face mask by DR. JART keeps my skin hydrated during the flight
I fall asleep the second the engine turns on so a pair of sunglasses are mandatory
No make-up, but sunblock in mineral form by PETER THOMAS ROTH does the trick
Hairspray, because me and airplane static don’t get along
Battling dry skin with AQUAPHOR, as per usual
I always keep a travel diary with me to record everything
