What’s In My Carry on Bag: The Essentials

I’m pretty obsessed with the “What’s In My Bag” videos on YouTube! From the celebrities and Youtubers sharing what they keep in their Hermès/ Saint Laurent bags, to the packing hacks “How I packed 3 weeks worth of clothes in my carry on suitcase” videos. What can I say, I’m always curious about what people are keeping in their bags. I’ve even done a couple of blog post myself about what I keep in my bag from What’s In My Beach Bag to What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag.  So now without further ado, here is what I keep in my carry on bag when I go traveling!

I use this Sol and Selene bag as my carry on.

Reading Material- I am currently reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert (such a great book). I like to have a book or magazine with me to read, so I am not dependent on my phone to keep me occupied in flight or during a layover.

Snacks – I have to have snacks with me so I’m not paying for the over priced airport food, unless I’m really hungry. Plus a bag of peanuts just won’t do it for me.

My bullet journal – I like to jot down any ideas for blog post or random inspiration so I keep my bullet journal with me at all times.

 Toiletry bag- I keep it close with me so it easier to take out while going through security.

My camera – I always have to take my camera with me everywhere I go, for taking pictures or vlogging my trip.

Scarf / Jacket – I like to keep either a jacket or a large scarf with me incase I get cold in the airport or on the airplane.

Headphones- So I can listen to music or a podcast during the flight or a layover.


Beauty bag – I don’t currently have an in- flight beauty routine, but I like to keep a couple of things on me so that I look nice. I really love the Caudalie – Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet because it hydrates my face, which is important for the plane since it tends to dry out the skin. I also keep some concealer to put under my eyes or on any dark spots.

My Reading Glasses.

  • Boarding pass/ Passport – Definitely an essential.
  • My laptop – I usually put my laptop in my carryon bag, but because my CALPAK – Carry on suitcase has a spot for it, so I just keep it in there.

  • Water bottle.


So that is everything that I keep on me while traveling, all of my essentials to make traveling a bit easier! Stay tuned for some more “what’s in my bag” post coming soon 😉
