Travel Essentials

Hey Everyone,

Sorry I haven’t posted in quite a while!
I was really busy with my AS exams then I went away to Cambodia for 3 weeks with my school to do some volunteering and trekking – let me know if you would like me to do a blog post on my experience in the comments – so I have been really busy.

I really want to get back into blogging and I am aiming to be put up quite a few more blog posts in the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled for new posts.

I am off to New York for a few days this week so I thought I would show you my top travel essentials that I always take with me when I travel.

I will link as many things as I can incase any of you would like to see the items I am taking.


The bag I am going to take with me is my Black Longchamp backpack – I use this all the time as it actually holds quite a lot whilst being really comfortable to wear for a long period of time.
Also, I will be using it whilst I am in New York so taking it as hand luggage will free up space in my suitcase.


My notebook is James and Friends by Jim Chapman.
I always take a notebook with me when I travel as I find long flights are always good times to write lists, plan blog posts or play games.

I always take my iPad mini with me when travelling as it is so much easier to carry than a laptop and I can use it to watch films or play games on the plane or in New York I can use it to watch YouTube or take photos.

I ordered a new book for this trip and chose Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan. I often like to read on planes so I thought a book about New York would be very fitting.
I have heard very good things about Sarah Morgan books so I am really looking forward to reading this.


Obviously, I take my phone and charger with me so I will either keep them in my pocket or my bag.

I am taking my Frends “Layla” Headphones as they are so comfy to wear so they are great for long flights (and come on they are rose gold).

I take my Sunglasses with me in my carry on so I have them with me when I land as well as my actual glasses to wear on the plane.

The toiletries I like to take are Simple make up wipes, Hand Sanitiser such as this one, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and This Works Deep Sleep spray.


Other things that I always take are my camera, purse, a mini dry shampoo like this one, lip balm and fluffy socks.

I hope you all liked this post about my travel essentials – make sure to let me know your travel essentials in the comments.

See you soon,

EmiMarie x

  1. Love your essentials! I too use my Longchamp on trips! It’s so spacious and practical. I also use that hand cream- one of my favorites! I need good headphones like that though. How is the book?! Great post!
