Hi there! 

If you've been following along on my Instastories and posts or Snapchat you've seen my recent trip to Hawaii and I'm now embarking on a trip to Mexico with my parents and Francisco. As a frequent traveler, I have developed certain packing rituals and among them are travel products I don't board a plane without. I figured they were worth a share because I adore these products and I'm sure you will too!

First up is the Chanel travel sized perfumes. I've had Chance and Coco Mademoiselle, and with the little travel twist bottle holder it makes it easy to refill the travel sizes and always travel with the right size liquids if you're not checking a bag! I LOVE perfume, especially Chanel. I typically buy at Duty Free to save on tax too! 

Next up is my Henri Bendel travel soy candle in the Beach scent. It smells lovely and is perfectly sized to be on the go and have a nice smelling hotel room! Their tops don't get stuck and are easy to throw in the suitcase. 

I also love to travel with a Yankee Candle room spray. This one is a beachy scent called "Sun & Sand" which is so fresh and tropical, perfect for my back to back beach journeys. There are so many wonderful scents to choose from no matter what kind of adventure you're off on!

Speaking of sprays, I LOVE my Mario Badescu rosewater aloe and herbs face mist (see two posts ago!) and of course I love to have the travel sized one on hand with my beauty products. More on Mario later and some of the other skincare I love!

In addition to scents and things, I am a huge fan of my travel humidifier by Crane. It is small and easy to pack and you just add water (literally)! The customer service team for Crane is very friendly too. As a performer too when I'm not blogging, vocal health is really important to me (and not getting sick) and this humidifier allows the dry rooms to not bother my sinuses as I sleep. My room humidifier at home even has essential oils in it which makes the moisture mist even better! I got mine at a CVS but they are available on Amazon and many other retailers too! 

Last but not least as a product rep for Volkswagen I have a passion for Vdubs and this adorable VW Bus travel speaker was a major score! It amplifies my music in a hotel room and looks so cute. It makes a bus honking sound when you turn it on or off and the headlights light up when it's on. It comes with a charger too.

I hope you enjoyed my travel products! I'm passionate about them as they make life on the road easier, more fun, and smell better!  I hope you're enjoying Spring Break if you are taking one this year 😊
