14 Items You Don't Want to Forget to Pack

Let's connect on social media:

I may run a travel blog (which, by the way, is not that prestigious... I merely give squarespace $250 a year for the rights to call myself a writer), but I am FAR from a perfect traveler.

When my mom dropped me off at the airport yesterday, it me 5 minutes to realize that I'd left my suitcase from in her trunk. 

When she returned to the airport to give me my bag, she only had one thing to say:

"You run a travel blog?"


Anyways, as more and more people find out about my secret travel blogger double life, I want to remove any illusion that exists about me being a travel expert.

Perfection is not realistic - things go wrong in travel. In fact, that is the reason humans love to travel. The unpredictability. The lack of control. The unexpected. The new. The figuring out spend a few days without contacts or deodorant. 

Anyways, I just wanted to share a short list of things I always forget. Well, I forget a lot of different things, but these are the things I forget the most. 

Don't forget these items on your next trip:

  • Lipstick
  • Deodorant
  • Contact lenses 
  • Bathing suit
  • Headphones
  • Tweezers
  • Sunglasses 
  • Jewelry
  • Sports bras
  • Sneakers 
  • Laptop charger 
  • Glasses case
  • Nail polish remover pads (trust me)
  • Sun screen
