Guest Post: Emmalee from Everyday Emmalee

Hey Sarah’s followers! This is Emmalee from EverydayEmmalee. I’m so honored that Sarah allowed me to guest post for her today!
Since she is traveling and many of us will be flying in the next coming months,
I thought it would be helpful to share some great must have travel items with
you all!

1. Digital Luggage scale.
Now, you obviously don’t want to use this on the flight, but it’s a
great tool to use before you even leave your house! Make sure your luggage is
under the 50-pound limit so you don’t have to transfer items at check in (Been
there-done that…one word: embarrassing.)

2. Entertainment.
This is a must. Pack your iPod, iPad, laptop, book, Kindle, etc! Whatever you
own. Make sure you have something to read or to do on that (short or long) flight of yours. I
like to pick up a couple magazines before I board my flight too. Oh, and don’t
forget those headphones or earbuds and a charger!

3. Water Bottle.
Pack an empty water bottle and fill it up at a water fountain once you pass
through security. This is save you from buying overpriced water at the airport! You can never drink too much water while
flying...My personal favorite is my Nalgene bottle.

4. Hand Sanitizer.
I carry this with me all the time- let alone on my flights! I use it after many
things: escalator ride…flight (you know how many hands and arms have rested on that hand
rest??...gross!). I’m not obsessive about sanitizer but I do like clean,
germ-free hands!

5. Tide To Go Pen.
I have a habit of spilling food, drinks-anything on myself… and the Tide to go
pen has saved my outfits countless times. These pens are good for removing: tea, wine, grape juice, chocolate syrup, BBQ sauce, ketchup, coffee, and more! What a great invention. Make sure you
pick one up before you embark on your trip! You’ll use it beyond the flight.

6. GloMinerals
Perfecting Powder.
Makeup? Yes! My T-zone gets oily when I fly and I never
leave home without this product! I like to touch up my t-zone right before I
land! Perfecting Powder can be used as often as necessary over your foundation to give a shine-free finish.You’ll use this product long after the flight!

Hope this list will help you out in the near future!  
Happy and
Safe Travels!


  1. I agree with all of the above! I'm actually going on a cruise this April - not flying but going on a bus, and they can be extremely boring if you have nothing to do. Especially if you're in traffic!

    iPhone, iPod, iPad, Nook...CHECK!

    Thanks for sharing a great post!

  2. I'm always a fan of bringing the Clorox Wet Wipes. I'm not a germ freak, but wiping down a tray table/armrest that I know for a fact hasn't been disinfected in a few days (even though it's seen many passengers!) is a MUST!

  3. I really enjoyed reading your tips, I never thought about bringing my waterbottle and then filling it up! Thanks for the tips!!


  4. Great tips girl! These are all must haves!


Thank you for the sweet comments! xo!
