The Glam Globetrotter: 8 Travel Essentials

By  August 07, 2012

As Glam editors we spend way more time in the air than we do at the office. Our grueling travel scheduled have forced us to become master travelers and efficient packers. And though shuffling through countless airports is far from glamourous, we stock up on chic essentials to keep us fabulous and functioning regardless of where we’re headed. Today we’re on our way to Prague and Copenhagen for a much needed vacation, but whether we’re on a jaunt for work or pleasure our travel must haves remain the same: 



1. Chan Luu Cashmere and Silk Blend Scarf, $195
The cabin temperature may vary at 30,000 feet and few things skeeve us out more than having to use an airline blanket. We therefor never leave home without a lightweight scarf to wrap ourselves up throughout the flight and our subsequent adventures.

2. Lipault 22” 2-Wheeled Foldable Carry-On, $189
Our carry-on is our best travel companion. This one is lightweight, versatile, effortless, and is available in stunning jewel tones. Lipault luggage is the perfect way to make a style statement on the jetway.

3. Tory Burch iPad Case- Robinson Flip Handle, $165
We’re at the point where we no longer take our computer on the plane; taking our laptop in at out of our bag at security is far too much hassle. Our iPad has become our communications and entertainment center and so we stow it in style.

4. Smythson Mara Collection Passport Cover With Slide, $235
Nothing is more frustrating than arriving at customs and being unable to find your passport. A unique case will enable you to keep it handy and protected. Smython travel accessories make us happy and this elegant passport cover is currently a “Glam Globetrotter” favorite.

5. Henri Bendel Travel Adaptor, $68
We often find ourselves in obscure destinations where an adapter is crucial, but we never know which plug will work. This one is adorable and efficient and includes four configurations in one…plus it works in 150 different countries. How else are we going to keep our gadgets going on the go?

6. Nars Hydrating Moisture Cream, $72
Staying hydrated throughout the flight will keep you looking fresh and fabulous when you arrive at your destination. And while it’s important to drink lots of water throughout the flight–you’ve got to counteract the effects of those bloody marys somehow–it’s also crucial to keep your skin moisturized and there is nothing better than this cream.

7. Crystal Case Purple Crystal Rhinestone Earphones With Microphone, $24.99
Why bother with boring headsets? These blinging earbuds will enable you to sparkle in the sky

8. Monogrammed 6 Inch Round Jewel Box, $100

We never leave home without a slew of accessories. Even if we just pack the wardrobe basics, we always bring along a bunch of jewelry options to keep our outfits exciting. To avoid getting your necklaces and bracelets tangled, stow ‘em in a luxe monogrammed jewelry case.
