You know that I love to travel and I’ve learned that having the right gear can make all the difference. I’ve partnered with QVC today to bring you some travel favorites.  I have been compensated by QVC for this post. All selections and opinions are my own.

Whether you’re taking a long vacation or just a quick trip to rejuvenate, having a few simple items will help you to be organized and efficient allowing you to enjoy your time away.

One of my travel must haves is clear pouches like these for organizing items in your carry-on that you need to easily access. This set of three clear panel pouches has two compartments: a clear one on the front and another on the back where you can keep things private but still accessible. I’ve used the larger pouch for my computer and phone charging cords, the middle sized pouch for our passports and the small four make up items for a quick touch up after the flight. These pouches help to keep my bag organized and clutter free.

Now that the airlines are so picky about the weight of bags I’m so excited to have this luggage scale. It’s small compact size allows you to take it with you to weigh your bags coming and going.

This cute colorful set of make up bags is another Great item to stay organized. Hair care, skin care, and make up can all have their separate bags helping Tuesday organized.

As I’ve told you before I am always cold on trips. I’m excited to have this blanket and pillow set. I took it with us on our trip to Colorado. The pocket holds an inflatable insert for the pillow so you can make sure it is the furnace that you like. The blanket folds perfectly to fit inside the pillowcase when the pillow is deflated.

And finally the perfect travel hairdryer! I also took this T3 Compact Folding Hair Dryer to Colorado with us. I cannot tell the difference in it and my full sized dryer! It has so much power.  I will never travel without it again. It is truly the perfect travel dryer. Having good hair definitely makes for better trips, right?!?!

QVC has a whole section dedicated to travel essentials. I found all of these items and more there. What are your travel essentials? I always love hearing your input.
