Recent Travel Purchases

It’s been way too long since I’ve written about anything at all. I am finally making my comeback with some recent purchases I’ve made that are travel-related.

Multi-Purpose RFID Blocking Travel Passport Wallet (Amazon)
This was just one of those random purchases I decided to make while browsing through “travel accessories” on Amazon. I have to admit, this did really come in handy on my last trip. You can fit everything you need in it: an ID, a few credit/debit cards, cash, your passport and boarding passes. As someone who usually has their stuff all thrown in a bag before trips, this helped me a lot. Plus having everything in one place made it easier than rifling through my bag or wallet.

Original Floral Water-Resistant Large Tote Bag (Amazon)
Once again, something I probably didn’t need but wound up buying anyway *shrugs* I will say though, it did get used a few times on my cruise and I really like this bag for the beach/pool. I was able to fit two beach towels, plenty of sunscreen, phones, wallets, sandals and any other small things with no problem. There are plenty of patterns available, so you can decide which vibe you want to go with.

Wayfarer Supply Hanging Toiletry Bag (Amazon)
I bought this for myself mostly because I had been using several Ipsy bags to pack my toiletries for my last few trips. This bag is big enough to shove in any possible toiletry you may need. I cannot vouch for if you can pack regular-sized shampoo/conditioner/etc. as I always use the travel-size ones. I can tell you that I was able to fit everything I use, with plenty of space to spare. The hook was nice as it helps the bag not take up any counter space. When the bag is empty, it folds up pretty small so you can easily store it until your next trip.

Charlotte & Noah Design Travel Jewelry Organizer (Amazon)
This was something my mom told me was unnecessary (sorry mom) because she doesn’t think you should travel with too much jewelry. I agree with her to an extent – I think it depends where you’re going and what the area(s) you are traveling to are like. I was just on a cruise when I used this for the first time, and I mostly wore jewelry on the boat, so I wasn’t too worried. This can hold a pretty decent amount of jewelry! There are necklaces snaps, ring rolls, a plastic earring holder plus a few other pouches for bracelets, watches and anything else you may need. I never had a travel jewelry bag before, I would just shove some jewelry into a small bag and hope for the best. This definitely helped to keep things organized and my necklaces from getting tangled (the worst!!).

Compact Retro Travel Backpack / Woven Straw Crossbody Bag (Palm & Peak)
These two bags sadly did not get used on my most recent trip as I did not get them on time. The travel backpack will be used as my new carry-on bag as there is plenty of space inside it, plus pockets galore. I’ll check back with you guys once I get a few uses out of it.

The crossbody bag is just one I wanted because I have seen more and more people with straw bags, and they are too cute! I got the round one for myself, but they also have a rectangular one. My phone (iPhone XS Max) and wallet fit in there no problem, which was most important for me.
If you’re interested in either bag, or anything Palm & Peak has to offer, you can use the code “GetUpGetAway” for 15% off!

Anything on my recent purchase list interest you guys? Let me know below if you have any questions on anything I’ve bought, or if I’ve convinced you to buy something!

    The hanging toiletry bag is something I always have on a trip. Comes in handy every single time! I also bought some RFID sleeves for my cards in my wallet. I need to replace them, they’re looking a little sad.
