With all of the traveling I’ve done lately (and still have coming up!) I thought it would make sense to share my 8 best travelling tips with you while they are VERY fresh in my mind! These tips include some of my favourite products to travel with and necessities from Saje Wellness!
Plus, I’ve shared even MORE details in the video below so make sure to check it out too!!
Let’s get right to it!
Tip 1: Bring a Big Bag
That’s right, I’m not a carry on bag kind of girl … in fact, I like to OVER pack for fear that I might not have everything with me. My favourite suitcase of all time is the Briggs & Riley suitcase because it’s so massive and they come with a lifetime warranty!! When it comes to packing for the kids, I like to use CINDA B bags! I was first introduced to Cinda B bags when I was on The Bachelor over 10 years ago and have been using them ever since!
Tip 2: Be Prepared for Anything
I like to make sure we’re prepared for ANYTHING when we’re travelling (hence the big suitcases and overpacking lol!!) so not only do I bring a toiletry bag for myself but I also bring a separate one for the kids to make sure we all have our essentials! Plus, I also pack a travel toiletry bag for the kids that I carry with me in the diaper bag.
A few staple items I like to have with us at the ready is the Mini Mender from Saje Wellness (this is a nice lotion for the kiddos, another great one is the Mini Moisture!), the Fortify Nasal Inhaler (or the Immune Mist!) and the Chest Cold soothing balm for myself and Justin (to ward off any bugs!). I like travelling with both of these as it’s an easy way to get your dose of essential oils and you know they won’t leak!
Tip 3: Bring a Diaper Bag (If Needed)
If I’m travelling with the kids, I make sure to have a diaper bag with me at all times! My favourite diaper bag is from Fawn Designs! I love to fill it up with the necessities such as diapers for Annie, a change of clothes for both kids, wipes, soothers, a couple of toys to distract Leo … etc!
Tip 4: Bring Sickness Remedies
In addition to the Mini Mender, Fortify Nasal Inhaler and the Chest Cold soothing balm, I also like to make sure we bring along a few other key items from Saje Wellness to help us ward off germs such as the Immune Remedy, and the Safe Hands lotion which is a 100% natural topical antimicrobial lotion!
I also like to bring the Aroma Fairy Children’s Blend roller for Leo (this is the best to use once he starts getting restless), the Sleep Well roller for myself, and the Energy Nasal Inhaler to give me a little pep in my step when I need it most!
Tip 5: Don’t Forget the Scrunchie
Never forget to pack your Chelsea King scrunchie! LOL! My hair is generally up in a messy bun 99.9% of the time when I’m travelling!
Tip 6: Minimize Where You Can
I feel like I’m contradicting myself here when I tell you to OVER PACK then to minimize where you can! LOL! What I mean by this is, when it comes to my toiletry bag I make sure I only have a specific size of case and anything that I CAN’T fit in it, has to stay behind. I have a trick on how to achieve this below …
Tip 7: Mini Everything
You got it. MINI EVERYTHING. When it comes to the items in your toiletry bag, pack the travel size of everything you need if you can find it. My face serums from SkinCeuticals come in travel sizes, plus my Lavender and Rose mists from Saje come in a smaller size as well. You can easily find travel size deodorants, shampoo, and conditioners, toothbrushes, etc.
Tip 8: Pack as Much as You Can
My theory is, pack as much as you can with as much as you can carry as one person! LOL! If you can pull this off, you’ll have everything you need (and probably more!) for the entire trip!
There you have it! What are some of YOUR best travel tips? Share them with everyone in the comments section below!
