Summer Fridays, warm weather escapes, the next few months are meant for a getaway. These are my travel must-haves for Hawaiian Tropic's Things We Love - Summer Edition series. I keep my mini travel bag packed at all times just in case there's a spontaneous trip to be had. (Hubby on the other hand calls it lazy because he thinks I just don't bother to unpack). Whether you are headed for the beach, off to the country or travelling overseas, don't forget these top essentials.
Sonia Kashuk makes these cute printed cosmetics bags that are perfect for taking on a plane. They have two removable clear bags that are easy to pull out for airport security. It is big enough for my IPad (loaded with e-magazines, books and Angry Birds).
Little versions of haircare products. L'Oreal's Ellnet comes in a mini bottle and Frizz-Ease fits airport security specs as well. Ellnet has a fine mist that doesn't get too sticky in humid or salty beach air. Frizz-Ease sheer solution keeps my hair sleek in the frizziest conditions.
I can't live without sunscreen and skin moisturizer. Luckily, Hawaiian Tropic's Silk Hydration can count as both. It goes up to 50 SPF and has shea butter. I feel like I don't have to pack an extra skin lotion if I have this with me.
Little Calvin Klein black knit dress. I can ball it up and squish it into the smallest spaces in a bag. Basic enough to be casual, but easily dressed up with jewelry (that you purchased on location) or topped with a cardigan for cool nights.
Last, an inflatable neck pillow is a comfort saver. It folds down to nothing and makes a huge difference on a long flight. More importantly, if you are stranded somewhere waiting for a flight/bed/buffalo crossing, it makes life much more tolerable.
Are you ready to go? Bon Voyage!
