The Ultimate List of Travel-Must Haves! | What’s in My Carry-On!

Hi everyone!!

I hope you are having an awesome Monday so far! ❤ I have some super exciting news!! In last week’s post, I mentioned that I was going on holiday! (And that I’ll be blogging about it!!) But…I didn’t say where I was going! (it made everything more exciting?! ☺️) 


 I’m now in…Singapore!! *squeals* I can’t believe it!! I’m absolutely loving it so far! 😍❤😊 

I reached here on Friday, and I’m going to be here for a couple of days and I couldn’t be more excited! This post was actually going to be a scheduled post, but then I decided that it will just be more exciting to blog on the way! ☺️

Planning for a trip is actually just as exciting as actually going (for me at least haha..) so I usually end up planning for a trip at least two-three weeks before because that’s just part of the fun y’know? 😉

Since I love it so much, I decided to combine the announcement with a travel essentials post! I absolutely adore reading these types of posts! Mostly because it’s really fun to see what other people are carrying and it’s actually really useful to see if you have missed out on anything! Also they are just super fun to read. 😉❤

Alright! It’s time for some pictures!! 🎉

This is just a full picture of most of the things that I thought were absolutely essential! Well, for me at least. 😂
The most important things to take for me were :-

  • My Travel Journal!

This is one of biggest things that I’d recommend taking on a trip. Documenting a trip is super amazing too, but writing everything down in my opinion makes it all so much more memorable and interesting. 

  • Books!!

What’s a holiday without books?? I find reading when I’m on holiday always a bit more special than when I’m not on holiday for some reason? I usually collect a couple of new books for the trip- depending on how long it is and how long the plane will take to land. 😊❤ oh and I simply had to take a couple of super cute bookmarks as well! 😂❤😍

My Bullet Journal & My (new) Travel Journal!

The books that I decided to take with me were-Malala’s book and the first book of the Divergent series! I actually got both books quite a while ago, but I never had the time (*gasps* I know!! It’s terrible!!) to read them? My Name Is Malala has actually been on my Goodreads for so long, it’s actually pretty unbelievable. 😭😭
Other stuff I included…

  • A cute pen to write with. (Aaah!! That Pom-Pom!! 😍😍) I actually featured this one in my back to school haul as well! 😉 I think I adore it too much Haha…
  • Socks! (It is a must in the imaginary rule-book. I’m sure of it.) 
  • Sunnies!! It doesn’t matter where you are going, (even if it’s to Antarctica 😂) if it’s a holiday then sunglasses are essential. ( I may or may not have made that rule up) 

  • Lip balm. 

Okay so I have a problem. My lips constantly get chapped and because of that,I have to keep hydrated and I have to carry lip balm with me. At all times. Not that I mind very much though haha..I love lip balm. So I took a vanilla flavored roll on (by Lipsmacker) and a strawberry flavored one. ❤😍😍

  • Headphones

I think headphones are also another thing that will most probably be necessary. 😊❤ Listening to a podcast or a talk show or even something funny is actually a really cool experience, so I’ll definitely recommend popping in some headphones (or earbuds) into your carry-on! They’ll definitely come in handy!

  • Icebreakers!

I love this stuff! It’s honestly so good and it’s really useful when you are on a plane as well because when you concentrate on sucking it, it reduces the effect on your ears. Which means that it helps your ears to not pop? If that makes any sense at all haha… but just trust me on this one because it actually really helps! 

  • Oh and a lovely ‘lil hairbrush! 

I added in an extra change of clothes and a few other things as well! But apart from that, I think that’s just about it for my basic essentials! I usually tend to go quite overboard so I always end up adding in things especially at the last minute haha…this time was definitely no exception. 😂❤ (sorry mom!) 

I honestly can’t wait to blog about the actual journey!! I’m so excited!! Make sure to keep an eye on your inbox, the reader or just on my blog!  😉💗 (only if you want to of course) 

Thank you so so much for reading!!

So, What do you think?? Hav you ever been to Singapore? Do you have any travel tips to share? What are your essentials? Oh and if you could travel to anywhere in this universe, where would you go to? I’m really curious.😉 Let me know EVERYTHING in the comments!!
