Friday Five – Travel Haul

Hello Everyone!
If you have been keeping up with me on Instagram, you will know that I leave for NYC on Monday! I can hardly wait. I recently did a small travel haul for this trip and I figured I would share it with you. Here are a few new travel essentials broken down into 5 categories:
1. Beauty
 I have been slowly acquiring these items over the past few weeks, and I am so excited to have them for my trip. First, I saw Sephora had mini Triple Sec bottles in their rewards bazaar, so I quickly picked up a couple and was thankful I had some points to spare. I love this product and it makes my hair smell amazing. I also picked up a few gems at Anthropologie that are just gorgeous. The rosewater sage hand cream is so luxurious and is perfect to throw into my handbag. The Marvis toothpaste is one that I have been wanting to try for some time now, and when I saw it in the store, I had to pick it up. It’s a travel size and perfect for my trip. Lastly, I found these super cute travel bottles on Amazon and can’t wait to try them out. The come with a small funnel and spatula to make filling the containers easy (hopefully…I will let you know!). And they are pink, so I had to have them!
2. Storage
 I am obsessed with this crossbody! Not only is it gorgeous, but it is so practical and fits everything I need inside. My travel camera fits so perfectly which is why I was drawn to this bag in the first place. I also bought this adorable black velvet cat zip top bag (mentioned here) for cards, cash, train tickets, etc. Since we are on the topic of storage, I also purchased some back up memory cards because I plan on taking so many pictures!
3. Batteries
There is nothing worse than being away from home with a phone that’s dead, am I right?! I vowed not to let that happen to me so I purchased this portable charger to insure my iPhone stays alive! I also got an extra camera battery, again because I plan on taking way too many photos.
4. Calming Aid
As soon as I knew I was going to be traveling quite a bit this summer, I knew I wanted to purchase one of these. I suffer with anxiety sometimes (read more here), and although it has gotten so much better, I wanted to have something to help me stay calm should I face any flare ups. Lavender is great for reducing anxiety and stress, and this roll-on is so handy.
5. Cords
This one is pretty self-explanatory, but I thought I’d share it with you anyways. I needed some new charging cords for my iPhone, and these pink ones had my name written all over them. I also got a few gear ties to help me keep all of my cords organized. I know they are going to be a lifesaver.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
Are you planning any trips for the summer? I want to know where you are going and what are some of your travel essentials? xx
P.S. The peonies featured in the photos from this post are from my own garden! Aren’t they gorgeous? They make me so happy.
