Creature Comforts

Mindy here. A couple of weeks ago I talked about summertime and we revisited some of our fondest summer activities. Well, summertime is also vacation time for many folks. That means deciding on those must-have items from home. And if you're flying, that's an even bigger task, what with baggage fees and such. My must-haves change depending on where I'm going and what I'll be doing, but there are a few things I never travel without. Makeup, my own shampoo and body wash, and lotion. My skin is just too dry.

I know a gal who always travels with a body pillow. Yep, it takes up one suitcase all by itself.

So what are your creature comforts you just can't do without?

Happy Tuesday, y'all.

  2. I do the same, Mindy! All my toiletries. I cannot use hotel shampoo on my highlighted hair! :)

    I don't take my pillow, but I always wish I could. Sometimes wish I could take along my mattress!

  3. My own toiletries. But most importantly, my jewelry. The jewelry diva never leaves home without the jewels.

  4. I take all my own things too, but in smaller sizes. Since I'm writing this while on a trip to Arizona this topic couldn't be more timely :) I always underestimate how long it takes to pack :)

  6. I tend to forget to pack things when I go on a trip, but the things I don't forget are all the toiletries that have already been mentioned. Must Haves!

    Have a great and relaxing trip :)

  8. Sounds like we women are much the same--only our own toiletries will do. And yes, Kindles and such have made a reader's travels so much more convenient. Whether we choose one book or twenty, it weighs the same:-)
