Pretty Girl Travels: The Ultimate Carry On Packing List

Monday, January 20, 2020

Whenever I pack for a trip, no matter if its a weekend getaway or a flight half way around the world...

I always wind up forgetting something at home -__-

Then when I get to my destination and start unpacking I'm like "what the what Deanna?! How did you forget that?!"

When I went to Paris it was my allergy medicine, when I went to San Juan it was my toothpaste.  Without fail its always something! do you stop yourself from becoming so forgetful??
Create the ultimate travel & packing checklist!

Ok, slight confession the true inspiration behind this checklist came from the first time I went to San Juan about 5 years ago. 

I personally didn't forget anything...though toiletries are normally hard to remember.

This time around my airline messed up and clearly forgot where they put MY DAMN BAGS for three whole days.

That means for three whole days my stuff was GONE bruh! No shirts, no contacts, no damn bathing suits. I literally had the clothes on my back and instructions from my airline which was AirTran who might I add is no longer in operation (I wonder why) to go to the mall and buy all new stuff, with the promise that I would get reimbursed.

WHAT?! Do you know how hard it is to focus on paradise when you're about to spend all your travel coins at the mall?


I couldn't help but think...had I just put together a list of essentials and packed a carry on, even if the airline lost my luggage I would have been able to get though the beginning of the trip.

And of course since then had I had my checklist...maybe I wouldn't be forced to re-buy toothpaste and meds while on recent trips.

So whats on the list? All the travel essentials for the perfect flight and emergency luggage. 


Feel free to download and print out this checklist for your next trip or if anyone you know will be going wheels up soon pass this along to them and don't forget to pin it to your Pinterest board as well!

Trust me, its a real life saver! 
You'll be able to worry less and just enjoy your vacation once you know you have everything you need.

Oh and if your thinking what carry on is going to carry all this ish, cuz you know they be trippin on that over head space. 

I've got you covered on that tip as well.

When I took off to on my last trip to San Jan, I was able to fit all the things on the list (minus my neck pillow) in my Knomo Backpack. 

This thing is the bomb diggity!
