In-Flight Essentials

I've been doing a lot of traveling for work, and if you've been on a plane anytime recently, you know that flying just isn't what it use to be. In fact, it can be down right uncomfortable! It's taken a little trial and error, but I've finally figured out what I need with me, to ensure a pleasant flight. Here are my must-have travel essentials:
Makes sleeping a little easier, and who doesn't look more glamorous with big sunglasses on?

purchased after security screening

These are the scarves you see it every airport for about $10. Super soft, and big enough to use as a blanket.

Preferably with a downloaded movie rental from itunes, all ready to go. The headphones are necessary just to drown out the sound of the screaming child, that without a doubt, I'm seated next to.

Not only does this keep my hands clean, it also gives me something nice to smell other than the guy sitting next to me, who doesn't believe in deodorant. :)

This is with me at all times, flying or not.

This picture isn't the greatest, but don't judge a book by it's cover. This lip enhancer is AMAZING! It's  what I keep in my makeup kit to prep the lips for color, and I haven't found anything that works better.  Moisturizes, slightly plumps, and leaves the palest pink wash of color.  Every client asks me the same thing...what it is, and where to get it! It's THAT good!

These little packs really help boost my immune system, especially when flying with a bunch of people hacking and sneezing.

What are your In-Flight Essentials?


  1. So true! I have traveled and moved most of my life and flying has definitely changed! I also always bring a stack of magazines, granola bars, and sweater because its always freeezing! I love those sunglasses though, and where can you buy the lip plumper?

  2. I absolutely HAVE to have Rosebud Strawberry Salve, a scarf, magazines, and my Longchamp, although I tend to just sleep anyway, unless I have the good fortune of being seated next to someone attractive :)

  3. Lisa: If you click on the link, it'll take you right to Jouer. They're super fast at shipping too!

  4. What a great list, Bren! I'll have to try the Jouer lip enhancer, it sounds fabulous. My list also includes water and the Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizer, my ipod, magazines and/or a book, Carmex lip balm, and any comfy sweater or juicy velour hoodie.

  5. Great list - I've always wondered about Jouer and I'll definitely have to try it! I agree with all these plus my macbook, magazines and a snack :)

  6. Great list! I always have to have a stack of magazines on a plane.

  7. I have been traveling a ton myself lately. 100% agree on everything on your list.
    Hand sanitizer will keep you from getting sick. I swear by it. I used to get sick every time I stepped foot on a plane. Not anymore!

  8. Loving the Stella McCartney shades!


  9. I love Jouer Lip Enhancer! I only have a sample size of it but I think I will get nmore
