Pack everything into one space and avoid the confusion of misplacing any necessities. The bags are not only functional, they’re sustainable and made from recycled water bottles!

Byroe Travel Skincare

Bring a luxe skincare set. Let’s be honest: even if you’re planning for a super chill trip, traveling can be stressful, and if you’re like me, stress tends to manifest on your skin. Try the Byroe Skincare Calming Starter Kit —it worked great during a long convention. This travel starter set from Byroe includes four luxurious skincare pieces that calm the skin and make you feel extra fancy.

EZQuest Super Chargers

Pack a supercharger that can multitask. IConsider a great capacity piece like the EZQuest 120W USB C Charger. I love this one because it can charge three items at once and comes with an adaptor. It doesn’t take up much room either, and you can utilize the Type C and USB ports for charging just about anything. This came in handy during convention trips when I needed to charge everything from my laptop to my iPhone to my portable charger. Everything charged well, and I didn’t have any mid-day dead battery panics the entire trip.
