Carry On Travel EssentialsLike0

It’s not easy to change your typical carry on essentials. Passport..check. Hand sanitizer…Check. Travel bag…Check. But every now and then it is always lovely to find some wonderful new things to add to your collection to make your travel journey just a little bit easier!

I still am in LOVE with Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, this one is a keeper! Chanel’s lipstick also, stuck on Marie this month!

Here are few of my latest carry on essentials for the month of February! These will definitely last a long time with me!

The new Huawei Mate 8 is something I would like to stress on. 

I know what you are thinking, I can never change from my iPhone. Guilty. But I had a good feeling about this phone. Battery life lasts almost 70% longer and camera lens with 16MP, my current phone has 8MP. So you can imagine how I see colors differently now. I will be posting a short video on instagram soon for you to see. 

The Nike Airmax are my old time favorites. I always travel in them and recently bought these one in Vienna!

La Solution 10 de Chanel is the latest beauty skin product from Chanel, a gentle, soothing moisturizer formulated for sensitive skin and for all skin types irritated by aggressors, including pollution, climatic conditions, stress or non-invasive microdermabrasion. The formula features just 10 carefully selected ingredients, each chosen for its optimal skin tolerance and efficacy. Reason why I like it more is because of its compact size too! Perfect for carry on travel essentials!

Portable mobile phone charger from The Bowery Company It’s small, it’s compact and charges your phone twice. Good enough for me. At least for now.

Clarins Travel Kit Demaquillant Tonic Express, Creme Jeunesse des Mains. Both perfect for that quick make up remover freshness and especially if you have dry hands while traveling! It includes: Moisture Rich Body Lotion, Eye Gel Countour,  Beauty Flash balm and the Hydra Quench Cream. All perfect for your travel essentials carry on!

The Wisdom of Yoga by Stephen Cope Fabulous read, fabulous book, fabulous guide to Yoga, energy and positivity in life! 

Beats by Dre Headphones Solo 2 wireless – Kind of loving it when on the airplane minding my own business. Also, a great way to feel completely unplugged from everything! I received it as a christmas present from my husband and I think he was sending me a sign!

    I’ve just read Big Magic too. Not a fan of EPL but this one struck so many chords and inspired. A pashmina is always in my carry on – I feel the cold.

  • Feeling a little pink today because I took a day off work and doing some packing for an exciting trip ahead! 
I pack a week before my trip 🙄... is anyone the same?
  • This month, I asked the universe to help me in the practice of ‘letting go gracefully’ and I turned towards my Ashtanga practice. It has been more consistent than I can ever remember and I thank my teacher for navigating me. 
My mat has always been my private mirror ...Showing me my strength and weaknesses and my ability to push through when I’m stuck. It has me flirting with patience and, hope that one day, I might acquire it. It has been helping me shift my perspective and release the ‘need to control everything’ side of me... but still keep the organized side of me. 
Letting go is part of my healing process, whether it’s a posture that I need to fall into or catching my breath... because healing, is my responsibility... and no one else’s. 
These series of photos reminds of me a moment of achievement. The moment I’ve always wanted to sail in the Arctic dream a year ago, turned into a reality.
  • I love how so many of you played the exercise on my instastory. Wether it’s real or not, it’s nice to get to know a little more about you. 
I found love, success, happiness. Then found power, money, experience 🤣 
Did you also manage to find more words?
  • The bravest thing I’ve ever done was be a mother and learning to deal with fears I never knew existed... most of all, when I see her, I see the evidence of how strong I can be, and I remind myself: You’ve got this. 💫
  • The midnight sun is slowly making its way into the arctic. One of the world’s greatest phenomenon. Where the sun never completely sets and is visible day and night. Have you ever seen it?
I struggle to find the words to describe this feeling, because no words are strong enough. This was taken a little past midnight while sailing in the arctic on our @travelwithtjd - We are launching more TJD trips like those for you to join and experience it together. Follow @travelwithtjd to find out more on how you can join ❤️
  • I get asked constantly for advice on the best resorts in the Maldives that is children friendly. For me, it’s not only about the facilities but also the trust that’s built with the staff and the program they have for kids each day. Chloe loved it here, made new friends and cried when we left. That’s why I find it easy to always return to Joali. 
What’s your favorite island in Maldives?
  • Italy: A series of few images I took years back when I visited Florence. I remember the highlights of my trip: The gorgeous @fsflorence - Cinque Terre - A moment where I felt I lost all my inspiration - The magical sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo. 
What are your favorite things to do in Florence?
  • Throwback to almost 3 years ago. A friend asked for my recommendation for Bali and it brought up some memories. So found this picture. It’s one of my favorite places in Uluwatu and one of my favorite summer! Happy Sunday 🐰
  • The island’s Manta Tree house, designed by one and only Porky Hefer. It’s 5 meters in the air and a wingspan of almost 15m. The 50m tail of the manta is a suspended walkway leading up to body which seats up to 10 people! One of the many art pieces in @joalimaldives - I’ve never seen anything quite like it!!!
  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:
“If I want it, I can attract it” Abraham Hicks
  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!
