Lets face it, for those of us who travel often it is crucial that we have accessories that aid in us being prepared, comfortable and stylish. The list of goodies above are my ultimate go to’s when I’m en route anywhere, whether its via plane, train or car! To start, having a jewelry box that is easy to travel with and that can hold a lot of different items is very important. Thiss is what you will get with the Henri Bendel jewelry case! It is also small enough to fit in a carry on. Another handy product that is great for the girl on the go is Savvy Travelers wipe sets. These sets have every hygienic wipe you can think of allowing you to always put your best self forward in an instant!

That was unimaginable till now and you can do this with the Face Cradle! Your travel buddy will love you for this gift! Traveling with our perfume bottles is super annoying is it not? Having to pack them in our checked bags can add extra weight to our luggage plus because we can’t take them on an airplane it can be hard to freshen up fully before landing. Travalo atomizer are the PERFECT gift for not just women or men who travel but for everyone to take with them at anytime, quite frankly! With its creative and chic design you can carry your favorite fragrance with you in the smallest bag for when you need an extra spritz of freshening up! It holds 1.69 oz for about 65 sprays. This is my absolute favorite lifestyle accessory! In addition, for the one who loves to read on the go, Celebrity Fashion Stylist George Brescia’s book “Change Your Clothes, Change Your Life” is the gift that keeps on giving. This book is packed with style advice teaching you how to dress for your body type, no matter your shape or size! Bon Voyage, Mes Amis!
