10 Travel Hacks

It's no secret that traveling can be stressful and overwhelming. With these few simple tips, tricks, and hacks hopefully your adventure will go a little more smoothly!

  1. Wear a night moisturizer on long flights, it is extra hydrating and will help your skin in the process.
  2. Infinity scarves are a must have. If you are changing climates or unsure of the temperature of your plane throw on an infinity scarf, they are great for when you are cold and can even be used to block sunlight while taking a nap or needing some shut eye.
  3. Store chargers and power cords in an old sunglass case. You will know exactly where they are while not cluttering your purse or carry-on.
  4. Use a pill container to store and sort your jewelry such as rings, chains and earrings.
  5. Wear your heaviest shoes and coat on the plane, not only will this save room in your luggage but your coat can double as a comfy pillow.
  6. Instead of bringing a blush, brightener or lipstick try a tint such as Benefits 'Benetint' that works as both a lip and cheek stain.
  7. Make sure to pack a spare outfit in your carry on, no one ever thinks their luggage will be lost but it happens. Its better to be safe than sorry.
  8. Wear layers during your flight. Temperature can change in the blink of an eye whether that be outside, in the airports or on your flight. Traveling can be stressful enough, no need to add uncomfortable to the list.
  9. Roll your clothing if you have the opportunity, you would be surprised how much more you will be able to fit or in some cases bring back home with you.
  10. Be prepared for worst case scenarios. I know it is scary to think about but it will be ten times scarier if you had nothing planned in advance.
I would love to know what tips you have for traveling as I plan on doing a lot of it this summer! Leave a comment letting me know!
