With the holidays quickly approaching, for many people that includes a fair amount of traveling. I'm a big proponent for carrying on anytime I fly, which requires a bit more thought and organization, but also means there's no risk of lost luggage or long waits at baggage claim. Here are some of my favorite carry-on essentials that keep me entertained, hydrated, and looking my best as soon as I step off the plane.
Read: Just finished this book, which has become my favorite read for 2013.
Lug: Large carry-on tote, I love this Clare Vivier version.
Listen: Bose noise canceling headphones + Paul Simon's Graceland album.
Eat: Kind bar - my favorite is almond coconut.
Refresh: Orbit peppermint gum + Visine eye-drops.
Brighten: Nars multi-purpose stick in Luxor is ideal for creating a post-flight glow.
Cleanse: Honest Company natural hand sanitizer.
Charge: Mophie juice pack keeps my phone charged and ready to go.
