Question Mark: Essentials

One of the questions I always ask people participating on the PM Masters segment is "When you travel which are the essential items you take with you?" Due to heightened travel restrictions and extra fees mine have changed dramatically over the past couple of years.

Mine are as follows: Camera, weather appropriate shoes which always include a pair of walking along with a dress pair, perfume, make-up bag with multipurpose shades and colors, mani and pedi kit that is airport security friendly, iPad with all its add-ons, hand sanitizer, and a few basic pieces of clothing as I always expect to find something amazing on a quick shopping trip.

Toiletries have becomes sort of replaceable not because I wanted but because I had to. Unless you wear a very expensive face cream or something like it chances are you will be able to find what you need in this category at your destination.

I mentioned an airport friendly mani and pedi kit which usually includes cardboard nail files, a rubber handle clipper or anything that doesn't look menacing, small remover and my nail polish {of course the one by my fabulous friend Mary Jo Matsumoto... check out her new collection HERE}.

So, my question to you is... When you pack, what are those things you HAVE to take with you no matter what? What are your travel essentials?

Have a great day!
