Airport Carry-On 2015

This is the second edition of my airport carry on and even though the last one wasn’t that long ago, I have decided to write a new one because of the following reasons:

1.I have a new carry on bag.

2. I have new products I bring with me.

Anyway, let’s begin with technology. 20150820_153737_HDR-1

  1. All Power Battery — my phone, even though it’s been less than a year since I’ve had it, drains quite quickly because of what I use it for (social media) so when I go on a long journey, I have to bring this battery with me. I’m happy though, because I bought it the day of Amazon Prime Day. I hope it just keeps working though! *knocks on wood*
  2. Vitin Shower Speaker — there is potentially no where for me to be able to use it, especially at an airport, but I would just like to bring it with me for safekeeping.
  3. Fuji Instax Mini 8 — also no potential of me using it, but just like the speakers, I prefer keeping it with me. 20150820_153811_HDR-1
  4. iPod Gen 4 — this is such an older generation that I feel like I should just buy a new one. However, it has my life in it, so, I will keep holding onto it.
  5. Earphones — Don’t ask me why I have two pairs. However, I need them both.
  6. Surface Pro 3 + Cover — for obvious reasons, I bring this with me.
  7. A lot of chargers — cell phone charger, computer charger, speaker charger, battery connector, and iPod charger

Shall we move onto essentials?

  1. Sunglasses — since these are kind of expensive, I will definitely be bringing them around with me. Plus, they are also quite fragile so I wouldn’t be very comfortable packing it into my suitcase.
  2. Wallet(s) — of course I gotta bring my wallet!

Beauty essentials time! 20150820_154608_HDR-1

  1. Comb — since I usually take red eye flights, my hair often becomes an absolute mess ball. Therefore, a wide tooth comb is great! Plus, much less fall out if I use a wide tooth comb.
  2. Glasses — I don’t wear my contacts on red eye flights. It gets too dry for me to bear however I typically do wear contacts to the airport, but only if my flight is early on in the night.
  3. Sleeping mask — I typically bring some sort of a hydration sheet mask with me. It helps my skin come off the plane a lot smoother.
  4. Deodorant — there are a lot of stinky people on the plane, and, often, I am running to catch my layover and I stink.
  5. Contacts — while I do not wear my contacts, I bring all my contacts in my carry on because I don’t want to lose them. If I lost them, I would be screwed.

And no, I do not bring make up with me on the flight. I have never needed make up when I got off the flight, and plus, I think it is just adding more weight to my shoulders. However, in my carry on suitcase, I may put my more expensive make up in.

And then the miscellaneous items. 20150820_154510_HDR-1

  1. Kleenex — I typically bring snacks with me, so I will need something to wipe my hands with.
  2. Blotting paper — just because I don’t bring make up with me, it doesn’t mean I don’t use oil blotting paper.
  3. Notebook + Pen — for ideas on my blog. Sometimes I just have those epiphany moments.
  4. Instax Mini 8 Film + Photoalbum — I carry my most prized possessions with me and my photo album is definitely one of those. It hold all my memories of the past year.
  5. Key Chain — this may be useless, but the key chain holds all the charms that my boyfriend has gotten me over the years. It is very dear to me.
  6. Empty Water bottle — I totally forgot to photograph that but, I always recommend bringing an empty water bottle. Somehow water in airports are very expensive, so, you save a couple of bucks.
  7. Something to read — I don’t think I will be bringing a book with me on this trip because I probably won’t read it, however, I will be buying some magazines at the airport.

I hope this post was helpful. It may seem like I bring a lot of things, but in all honesty, they are the essentials of essentials. While I don’t want the summer to end, I am actually quite excited about packing.

I hope all have safe travels!

Don’t forget to SM:)LE today!
