I love to travel and luckily, it’s a regular part of my job as a destination wedding planner. The proper packing of a carry-on bag is a skill that takes time to perfect. Here are a few of my all-time fav items to take with me on a trip.
7 / Madigan Sean Cashmere Wrap
This wrap is perfect for those chilly flights or to keep warm with a blazer – I don’t like traveling with coats!
6 / Scented candle – Tuberose by Dyptique
I have scented candles everywhere in my home, and they add a personal touch to any hotel room. Tuberose is one of my favourites.
5 / Jet fuel supplements
Move over vitamins – these supplements are great pre, during, and post-trip. What jet lag?
4 / Patchology illuminating eye gels
Instant bright eyes in 5 minutes with these eye gels.
3 / Steamery travel steamer
I’ve stained or ruined a few shirts with hotel room irons in my time, which is why I travel with my own. Plus in Italy you’re not allowed to have an iron in your room in case of fire hazard – this saves on the pressing/dry cleaning bill. I promise you’ll love your steamer!
2 / Tumi bag by Orlebar Brown
It goes wherever I go – sturdy, reliable, trendy and fashionable. I’ve had many envious comments from fellow passengers while queuing for a flight. Who can blame them when you combine Tumi, Orlebar Brown and an iconic Slim Aarons print!
1 / Bose noise cancelling earphones
I like to tune out the world when I fly. Bose does the trick!
