TGIF! The weekend is upon us and I can’t wait to get out of the house and spend some time exploring the city these next couple of days. I have a long-time friend coming to visit and I’m excited to show her around our new neighborhood. Because I know we will spend a majority of our day out and about I will be packing my purse with the essentials I need to get me through the day. Keep reading to see what I keep in my bag.

Today I’m sharing what I keep in my travel bag. As I mentioned a few posts ago, my sister and her family are in from out-of-town and I have been traveling back and forth to our hometown. On these quick weekend trips I like to throw some travel-friendly essentials into this cute Kate Spade pouch.
My hair is always getting tangled throughout the day, so I keep this mini version of my favorite hairbrush in my bag at all times. It also works perfect to work in dry shampoo. One of the best travel-sized versions I have found is the Salon Grafix Play It Big! Clear Volumizing Dry Shampoo.
I always carry a few different lip products with me at any given time. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in the color Vintage. It’s so pigmented that I don’t feel the need to wear any lip stick. When I just need something moisturizing I reach for my go-to Carmex or the L’Occitane Vanilla lip balm.
In the summer I like to carry a small deodorant with me for a quick refresh. The Lavanila is my favorite, plus it’s aluminum-free and smells wonderful! I’ve been using it for years after hearing great things about it on YouTube. It is a little pricey for deodorant, so if you are unsure, try the trial size first.
A few other things I will toss in are my favorite hand cream-seriously this almond scent is everything, as well as some Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer (I’m always changing up the scent). Lastly, If I’m feeling extra high maintenance, some eye shadow will find its way into my bag.
Some items are more practical than others, but I like to feel prepared. And, honestly, who can resist the trial-size section as you are checking out at Sephora? Answer: Not me! What item(s) do you love to travel with? Let me know in the comments below!
