Perfect’s not easy, and I’m no expert when it comes to packing for upcoming travel… In fact, I prefer to fly by the seat of my pants, which drives my husband nuts! Nine times out of ten, we’ll be 30 minutes down the road and I’ll have that moment (face in palm) when I remember that one thing I forgot… It’s usually a phone charger! However, there are three bags that I always make sure are packed up and ready to go when we hit the road. My coffee bag, my toiletry bag and my wardrobe staples are never left behind. These are the things I can’t live without
In collaboration with Red Diamond Coffee & Tea, I’m sharing a few of my travel bag necessities with you.
Coffee Bag – A.K.A. my Red Diamond Bag
I hope I’m not the only one that travels with my own coffee on trips—it’s a morning necessity when packing for a long weekend! We’ve gotten so spoiled recently since keeping Red Diamond coffee at the house. Their coffee is so smooth and has such rich flavor due to the fact that their beans are 100% Arabica and hand-picked in Central and South America—where the best coffee beans are found! Red Diamond has been perfecting coffee for more than 100 years and knows how to bring out the best in each bean that they handle.
When you get spoiled with good coffee, the last thing you want on vacation is to go without! This is why we always pack either Red Diamond Single Serve Pods or their bagged coffee when traveling so we are always prepared for our caffeine fix. If you are on the hunt for Red Diamond coffee, visit their product locator to find coffee near you.
Here are a few other items I never leave home without:
If you’ve been following my skin journey over the past year, then you know I’ve really been focused on protection, hydration and age defense. These products, along with regular monthly hydrafacials have done the trick, and I can’t go anywhere without them!
I try not to stress too much about what to wear when on vacation. If you have a great pair of jeans, simple tank, and a pair of nude heels, you can dress it up or down with fun jewelry. A slinky skirt with a white tank can go both ways as well. A simple midi skirt is great for dressing up if you’re going out to a nicer dinner, or dressing down with a graphic tee and some sneakers. And y’all know I never leave home without my LOVES gas station hat!
No matter where your travels take you, be sure to stock up on the essentials, which for me includes Red Diamond Coffee & Tea.
