We leave for Tulum, Mexico tomorrow! I’m all (over) packed and ready to go. However, there is one thing that I make sure not to overpack.

When it comes to my shoes and clothing, I will always pack too much. You never know what could happen! Weather, being the most unknown and I want to be fully prepared. But when it comes to my carry on, that is perfectly packed with my in-flight essentials, most of which always make it into my beach bag too!

Here is my “never leave home without it” list that is a must for your carry on and transitions best for the beach!

  • Chapstick
  • Book
  • Sunglasses
  • Lotion with SPF
  • Headband
  • Hair Ties
  • Dry shampoo
  • Headphones
  • Little liquor bottles aka “Airplane Bottles”
  • Small sketch book with colored pencils
  • Facial wipes

Safe travels!
