As I was packing up my hospital bag, I got this craving to go somewhere warm! I know, not the best timing  at 39 weeks pregnant – ha! One of our goals for the year is to take a family vacation. I’ve always let traveling with littles intimidate me, but life is too short to play it safe. I thought I’d round up some of my favorite travel essentials including my new luggage from Amazon! Seriously, what did we even do before Amazon?


VINTAGE LUGGAGE (*Amazon find): I’ve been into vintage luggage lately, and thought this was just darling. Got so many great reviews, and who can resist a floral print? Whether you’re taking a staycation, or headed to Europe — this is the ultimate companion. You’ll be the star of the airport!

AIRPODS: I finally took the plunge and got airpods! I finally understand the rage – they’re so convenient and comfortable! Cord free is life!

CALPAK FAUX LEATHER LAPTOP BAG: This is probably my favorite on the entire list! (sharing more in IG stories) but it’s SO PRETTY and has several compartments to keep items in place. Love that the laptop storage is padded for safe-keeping. The backpack straps are comfortable and perfect for a long flight somewhere FUN! Get this!

5 PIECE PACKING CUBES: My family made fun of me when I got these for Christmas, but I love me some organization. Not to mention, they’re so cute. I am using these in my hospital bag to keep everything separated for easy searching. These (amazon find) also got really good reviews if you’re looking to get something a little cheaper. I just love the CALPAK brand for travel – they do it right!

MAKEUP BAGS (*Amazon find): These are so inexpensive and look way more $$ than they are! Amazon does it again! I am also bringing these to the hospital to keep all my toiletries organized.

GOLD RING AND BAND (*Amazon find): I got these rings because my fingers swelled up so early in this pregnancy and I felt naked without a wedding ring! Truth be told, I love it so much – I may keep wearing them! Under $40 for both, and they honestly look real! I know a lot of people don’t travel with jewelry, so these are the ultimate dupe to the real deal!

JEWELRY ORGANIZER (*Amazon find): A foldable jewelry travel case that got excellent reviews! It’s so cute! Gimme all the pink things!

LIVING PROOF TRAVEL DRY SHAMPOO: Ugh, this stuff is addicting. I don’t even use it when my hair is dirty! I always spray it on after curling hair to add volume, and it smells so good! I’ve probably gone through about 10 bottles by now. I can’t live without it.

2 PIECE VINTAGE LUGGAGE SET (*Amazon find): Say hello to my new best friend! I am sharing more on IG stories (make sure to follow along!) and I absolutely love it! I wanted something flirty, fun and functional. It has rose gold locks, TSA approved for carry-on, and the rose gold handle is such an elegant touch. I wanted something a bit different, and this certainly is it!
