I hope you had a nice, long holiday weekend!  Michael and I are still bouncing around Europe – We’re in Berlin today and heading to Amsterdam tomorrow!

Following up on last week’s Travel Tuesday post where I shared what I packed for two weeks in Europe in only a carry on bag, today I’m sharing my travel toiletry necessities.  This is exactly what I have with me and so far, so good!

Prior to our trip I invested in two new clear, plastic toiletry bags and these easy squeeze bottles.  Game. Changer.  I love these bags – they’re rather large but still fit the standard TSA requirement.  Also, I know the TSA rules say you’re only allowed one of these bags, but I’ve always carried two in my carry on luggage, and I’ve never had a problem!

I try to keep my skincare routine as normal as possible when traveling.  A useful tip for making sure you can fit all of your necessities, if your usual face creams, eye makeup remover etc. doesn’t come in a travel size, try to remember to save old sample size containers and use those to package up your creams etc.  I have so many of those little clear (with the black lid) Bobbi Brown sample jars that I like to use!

Without further ado …

    I need to save those little sample jars! They’re always the first to go when I’m on a cleaning binge, LOL. Also, those clear plastic containers seem like such a good purchase…Ziplocs always make me feel like something is going to leak or break!
