What's In My Bag?: Travel Edition

Hello loves! Since I am off to Punta Cana tomorrow, I decided to share with you all what's inside my travel bag! While my everyday work bag is stuffed with everything and anything one could possibly need, my carry on purse is limited to strictly essentials.

What's Keeping Me Busy: I have to have a book with me at all times, especially when I'm traveling. It's good to have for long flights without TV, layovers, or just laying out on the beach. My current read is Beautiful You by Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club, Choke, Invisible Monsters, etc.). Additionally, I usually bring my iPad with me for when I want to wind down and watch movies or play games.

Cuddle Monster: I'd like to formally introduce you all to my childhood companion, Mr. Twinkles. He's been to quite a number of places and this will be his second venture to the Dominican Republic with me! Even as a grown up in the real world, I find comfort in bringing him along with me on all of my trips. Plus, he doubles as a nice pillow for the plane ride.

Can't Leave Home without Them: When going on a vacation to a tropical island, you absolutely need a pair of go-to sunnies. I have a few extra stowed away in my luggage, but the Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunnies are my favorite to have with me! By the way, these sunnies were a Posh find for only $65 brand new. I also have to have some snacks with me and by snacks I mean my Ensure. No, it's not just a drink for senior citizens or underweight children -- it's actually delicious and nutritious!

Tory Burch 797 Medium Raffia and Snake-Print Leather Satchel (similar)
I got this satchel as a birthday gift several years ago and it is still my go-to travel purse. Since most of my longer vacations are to tropical places, this bag is simply perfect. Anyone who knows me knows that I have an obsession with snake print anything. Yet the raffia on this bag makes it all the more suiting to a tropical vacation. It's just large enough to hold all of my essentials, but small enough to not overwhelm my typically printed and colorful outfits.

I hope you've enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!
