Travel Essentials for your Carry-On

With spring break just around the corner, many of us will be jet setting to various destinations (hopefully warmer ones, since winter is still going strong here in Alberta!). Flights can be stressful and uncomfortable, but with the right items, even the long haul flights can be bearable.

So we've put together our carry-on TRAVEL ESSENTIALS for your next flight, to help keep you stress free, refreshed, hydrated, entertained and stylish.

See product details below! 

Travel Essentials
  1. BEATS BY DRE HEADPHONES - perfect to block out noise (or your talkative neighbour), listen to music, podcasts or watch a movie!
  2. DANICA STUDIO TOTE BAG – This bag is small enough to keep under your seat for easy access to your essentials, while still leaving you some leg room. Available at Liz & Lottie.
  3. AVEDA URUKU BRUSH  - Freshen up with a powder, blush or bronzer with this Kabuki-style brush—with soft, non-animal fibers—for a flawless blend. Available at RedBloom.
  4. AVEDA PURE ABUNDANCE HAIR POTION - prevent flat greasy airplane hair by sprinkling on some hair potion for instant volume and texture. Available at RedBloom.
  5. AVEDA STRESS FIX CONCENTRATE - This portable rollerball concentrate with a organic lavender, lavandin and clary sage aroma is proven to reduce feelings of stress, and can be applied anywhere, anytime. Something you might not necessarily think of, but is such a great idea to prevent flight anxiety and help with sleep. Available at RedBloom.
  6. FRANKLIN MILL + KANGAROO LAB SECURITY WALLET - Protect your identity with style. Secure your Credit/Debit card information from the latest in anti-theft technology. These wallets feature RFID PROTECTION. Available at Liz & Lottie
  7. AVEDA ENVIRONMENTAL COMPACT - Recycled, refillable and compact lets you customize your favorite shades. Perfect for holding some pressed powder to combat unwanted shine after your flight. Available at RedBloom. 
  8. AVEDA HAND RELIEF - moisturizing creme is a definite must have in your carry-on, because we all know how dry the air gets on planes! Make sure to apply at the beginning of your flight, as the Andiroba oil and other plant hydrators protect skin’s moisture barrier, sealing in softness! Available at RedBloom.
  9. AVEDA LIP SAVER - Don't forget to nurture your lips with this soothing, moisturizing, balm containing naturally derived waxes. Available at RedBloom.
  10. STATUS ANXIETY PHONE CASE - No more riffling through your wallet to get to your most frequently used stuff, keep 3-4 cards and a couple of notes close at hand with this Italian leather phone case. Available at Liz & Lottie.
  11. OLD TOM FOOLERY SLEEP MASK - If you want to catch some zzz's in flight, having a sleep mask can truly make a difference. We love this satin lined smart and sassy mask! Available at Liz & Lottie. 
  12. INVISIBOBBLE IN ROYAL PEARL - These are great to have all the time but especially on a flight. They leave no kinks yet still provide a strong hold. Tie your hair back to prevent tangles and then take it out at the end of your trip! Available at RedBloom.
  13. S'WELL BOTTLE - fill up this reusable bottle with your drink of choice (after security of course). It keeps your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12! Plus it will be handy to have at your destination so you can stay hydrated wherever you are. Available at Liz & Lottie.

Here's to a more enjoyable flight! Happy travels!

Extra special thanks to our East Village neighbours, Liz & Lottie, for collaborating with us.
