What’s In My Carry-On?

Hello, hello!

By the time you read this, I will be on vacation! This will be my last post until I return the following week. I’m hoping to be able to reply to comments and keep up with all of you while travelling.

I always enjoy seeing what people have in their purses or carry-on bags, so I thought I would show you what I’m bringing in my carry-on…

First off – a little water-resistant cross-body bag / purse. This is where I’ll be keeping my plane ticket, passport and wallet.

Up next, my electronics – my kindle and Ipad, with chargers and voltage adapter plug.

What's in my carry on?

A small makeup bag with non-liquid essential products for freshening up after flying. All my other makeup will be packed in my checked baggage.

My bag with essential liquid / gel / cream products:

What's in my carry on?

Not pictured – a change of clothes, a sweater and pair of socks (in case the plane is cold), a pair of flip flops, a pen, and a small notebook.

What are your flight essentials? What do you put in your carry on bag?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!




What’s in my bag? (Daily purse edition)

Since several of you have shown me your “what’s in my bag” posts, I thought I would show you mine, haha.

So here we go, this is my go-to daily bag from Matt & Nat, it has a long cross-body strap and a shorter shoulder strap. I mostly use the cross-body strap. This one isn’t listed on their site anymore sadly.


Under  the flap is a small pocket – in here is where I keep my house keys, subway card and a small change pouch for bus money in case I forgot to top up my card. My key chain is a jumble of bits – a climbing carabiner, a tag with my name on it from Florida, a heart shaped key ring (from a Betsey Johnson keychain that broke), and a mini screw driver for my glasses. There used to be a mini Maglight on there too, but I took it off to replace the batteries, and haven’t put it back on yet.


Next is a top view of my bag, as you can see, there is a zippered section and a snap closure section:


Inside the zippered section is where I keep my Moleskine agenda, a couple of pens, my Betsey Johnson prescription sunglasses (if I’m wearing my contacts, the sunglasses will be one of the several pairs I own), a pack of mints, and a small canvas shopping bag.


In the snap closure part of the bag, I have my giant Matt & Nat wallet, my phone (here’s my current case by Caitlyn Hackett) and my earphones. *I’m actually using the phone to take these photos*


And here’s the contents on the little zip pocket inside the snap closure section. This is where I keep a sunscreen sample pack, kleenex, allergy eye drops, eyeglass cleaner and cloth, band-aid blister stick, Urban Decay powder compact, whatever lipstick that I happen to be wearing, and of course, a Haus of Gloi lip balm.


Other things that are usually found in my purse, but weren’t actually in there this morning, are a notebook (if I’m working), my pink animal print blog idea notebook, my kindle, a hair elastic, and a small pouch (for emergency tampons, pads, pain killers etc). Not pictured is my small pastel rainbow Fulton umbrella because it seems to have wandered away. (This is a tragedy!!!)


Thanks for reading!!! ❤
