I’ve always thought of myself as a light packer but my housemate is pretty unconvinced that I’ll be able to do carry on (rude.) I’ve definitely had less make up in the past travelling, and I probably don’t need this much now – but it’s so easy to accumulate. You get 7kg with carry on with majority of airlines these days and boy does that all add up!
All my items fit into the two above bags, the clear one being flight approved 1litre, 20 x 20 cm resalable (You can get one here from Globite.) The other is just a cute peach and watermelon print I picked up from Daiso for $2.80. So here’s my constant 2 beauty bags and what I pack inside.
So I’ve booked myself into Lasik Eye Surgery which means I’m going to have better than 20/20 vision. My Dad suggested doing one eye at a time because knowing “my luck” something will go wrong – thanks, Dad. I’ve researched it and the statistics are all in my favour. I think I’ll be A-Okay. I mean, if it turns out that I’ll be able to shoot lasers from my eyes how sick would that be, and just in time for the Incredibles 2!
But it got me thinking, I’ve been travelling since I was 18 with glasses and how have I managed? Well, poorly to say the least.
So here’s How you can travel with glasses when you’re a bit of a donut like me.
We’ve all got a list of things we feel are necessary to our trip, long or short – we’d rather have it with us. I’m always triple checking I’ve got everything I need because I want my carry on to be continuously A+.
I’m not talking about my overall carry on, and that always depends per airline (check here for an updated list of restrictions) my beauty/liquids or essentials (passports/electronics) – but the things that make our trip easier, more enjoyable and generally allows us to be more comfortable, relaxed and prepared.
So, here’s 15 things that I love to have in my personal carry on when I travel!
