If I can avoid checking a bag, I will at all costs, especially if I have a layover. Stressing about the bag making it to the final destination and sitting there at baggage after you’ve been flying for hours, no thanks. I can totally get by with one carry-on and a tote for a week plus of travel, it just takes a little planning (and of course it depends on the destination). I’m spending 4 days in Aspen and then 6 days in Santa Barbara, so here’s what I packed in my carry-on. I also posted a video to my YouTube channel which you can watch below. And if you missed there’s another video of my skincare travel routine here.
I love my MZ Wallace tote (in medium). It fits a ton and it’s super lightweight. I pack all my toiletries in separate pouches, one for things I need on the plane, one for my skincare, and one for my make-up.
