Travel: How I Pack the Details

Recently I came across a couple of bags that caught my eye during the ShopBop sale.  I don't know about you guys, but when I travel I always just throw everything in and make it fit.  This includes jewelry, hair tools, makeup, and chargers, just to name a few.  Well, I found the perfect bags to make traveling with all of these things way easier.  Prepare to have your mind blown and to spend some $$$ because after you see these you'll want to go and buy them!

Introducing the four bags that changed my life.  Now my Type A personality is completely satisfied when I travel and I won't lose things, break things, get things tangled, melt things (its happened), or lose things.

Since I don't know what order to go in I'm going to start with the order I bought/received them in.  First bag I ordered was my vanity bag!  I originally ordered this because I've been getting more bigger sized make-up products recently and the bag that I used before wasn't cutting it anymore.  I used to use storage bins before that, but packing those up was not ideal.  I had seen this bag on a few of my favorite bloggers pages so I decided to go ahead and give it a try!  Not only is it the cutest bag ever, but it has a TON of room inside.  All of my make-up fits in it plus I have room for my skin care products which is a plus.

Next bag I ordered was my bling bling bag!  (it is sold out right now but I'll link it when it is on sale again) Like I said in the beginning of this post, I used to just shove everything in a bag and this was the worst for jewelry.  So many of my pieces have been broken because I just haven't found something to properly store them in while traveling.  Until I found this magic bag!  This has zipper pouches for your bracelets and necklaces, a snap stacker that you can stack your rings on (it isn't actually called that, it's just what I call it), and a watch band looking strap with holes for you to put your earrings on.  You store all your jewelry properly in this pouch, tie it up and you are good to go!  I don't ever bring that much jewelry, but it's because I always lose it or it gets lost.  Now that I have this, I'll be wearing a lot more jewelry on my trips!  Watch my instal-stories today to watch how this and all the other bags work :)

The same thing goes for my chargers/headphones.  They all just get shoved in zippers or wherever they fit and I actually broke my old laptop charger once, so annoying!  I ordered THIS bag so instead of having them in different places this keeps them all together and somewhat organized.  Every time I would open a zipper on vacation cords would literally be flying out of my backpack, ha!  Not anymore.  And this is an adorable way to store chargers, don't you think?!

Last but not least, and I think I saved the best for last!  A heat resistant hair tool bag.  The inside of this bag is heat resistant so if you are on the go, you don't have to wait for your hair tools to cool down!  You just store them in here and they are good to go.  THIS bag fits up to two hot tools, so I will personally be packing my flat iron and curling iron.  As the same for everything else, my tools were just shoved in a bag and luckily I haven't broken any of them, but I was on the go once and packed it in my bag hot and melted a hole through one of my shirts #winning.  

So far I love all of these bags for traveling, because they work so well and they are stylish!  I hope you guys enjoyed a travel type post and let me know on here or Instagram if you want more!
