{my carry-on must haves ...}

It's the weekend and I'm finally getting ready & packing for my trip to Europe next week! I can't believe it, and I don't think I will believe it until I'm actually there. Doesn't it always feel that way?

Here are a few of my carry-on must have's that I'm starting with, simply because I won't dare to forget them!


My iPad with the grey magnetic cover & black and white striped Kate Spade sleeve/ iPhone with gold polka dot Kate Spade cover/ My passport! Can't get very far without that/ Sunglasses from Aldo/ Reading material, I'll be taking the latest Style at Home (it's taking all my strength not to peek through it ahead of time!) as well as this cute book which I have been waiting to read (not pictured above)/ Kate Spade wallet, health insurance and fancy looking euros in tow!/ Hello Kitty mints are a must/ Makeup case stacked with goodies (listed below)/


I always need my handy buki brush (a fav)/ La Source hand therapy/ Mac Pro Longwear lipglass in Whoops!/ Mac Pro Longwear in Night Rose (literally lasts all day)/ mini Nini Ricci perfume/ Crest floss/ and my bareMinerals Matte mineral powder, I've got crazy oily skin so while other travellers bring along moisturizers and facial misting sprays, I'm carrying around my secret weapons: blotters like these and my mineral makeup!/

What are some of your must haves? Got something I should add to my list?

i never travel in the summer months without socks; planes can be chilly for sandaled feet! Whenever I go to Europe it feels like I am in a different world--Enjoy yourself!!

I second what Lisa said- its so cold on planes, so a pashmina is a MUST for me bc I don't like the shared blankets on airplanes- ew!

Jealous of your FAB upcoming trip but can't wait to see pictures. Have so much fun!

Oh how I am totally wanting to go home to Europe this summer, but it is not in the cards for me this year...

I would suggest a thin pair of socks for the plane ride, so that you can take of your shoes (I always do this, much more comfortable!) and also a shawl / scarf / pashmina, what ever you want to call them... not only is it usually super cold on the plane, but they are great to snuggle up with when you get tiered :)

Have a fun trip, can't wait to see and read about your trip!

Oh my goodness Nancy, have a wonderful trip. I will take notes on this post so that I can be as sheek as all of these goodies I can work on getting for my trip in September. I can't wait for photos, travel safe and have fun!!! Happy Canada Day!

Great list! I also always take a water atomizer for refreshing mid-flight and before landing.

Enjoy your trip!

Bests,
