Travel Essentials: Stylish Must Haves

Just because you’re traveling, doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy and out of style. Have you noticed how the celebs always look super great and stylish even when they’re just stepping off a 16 hour flight? If you’re a style diva, you must travel stylishly too.
1. A Stylish Organiser
Don’t just stuff everything into one super sized bag and then end up rummaging through it every time someone asks to see your tickets/boarding pass/passport. Wouldn’t it be great to have everything easily accessible to you? Invest in a stylish organizer, which will not only help you keep track of things to do during your trip, but you can also store important documents in this. A plain leather bound organizer would be great if you’re a corporate career woman, but if you’re style’s less severe, you can always get an organizer in a happy, bright color.
2. Trendy Luggage

Several not so expensive brands make pretty great looking luggage these days, so you have NO excuse. If your luggage is all matching, say your hand luggage matches your suit case, I think its super cute too. But it’s not a must though!
3. Underwear and Make Up in Hand Luggage
A girl must always have makeup accessible to her no matter where she is. Travel can make you look more tired than you feel and make up can help you change that. Make sure you carry some basic makeup with you at all times. This should include eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, foundation, moisturizer, cleanser etc. Also, traveling is unpredictable, and carrying a change of underwear in your hand luggage is a great idea. You never know when you might need it.
4. Sunglasses
You never know what the weather’s like in a different place and you don’t want to squint if the sun is too strong do you? Always carry your sunglasses with you to avoid that. Haven’t you noticed…sunglasses are an essential part of every woman’s wardrove honey! Also, if your eyes look tired after the traveling, you can always cover it up with a stylish pair of sunglasses…just like the celebs!
5. A Cell Phone
Whether you’re traveling to a different city or a different country, it’s important to stay in touch. Make sure you have a phone. It could be your current number on roaming and if that’s not possible or too expensive an option, simply get a prepaid number. But a cell-phone number is a traveling must. Also, if you meet a hot man while you’re travelling…at least you’ll have a means of getting in touch with him!
This list could go on and be more diverse depending on where you’re going and what you’re doing but these are some basic essentials you might like to keep in mind when you’re traveling next. If you’re a career traveler, you might need some other basics such as corporate clothes and comfortable work shoes. But if you’re on holidays, you might need more makeup and other basic clothes. But this basic list of five is important, no matter what the reason of your travel!
