I travel a hell of a lot for my work, especially now many borders are back open again. But whether I’m catching a plane to a magazine shoot or heading on a much-needed vacation, the contents of my luggage remain constant.

This is especially true when it comes to my travel essentials. Below, I’ve let you all in on my suitcase secrets and picked out 10 things that I literally can’t travel without, from the foundations of my wardrobe to vital skincare items.

Black Tee

When I can’t decide what to wear, I always choose an all-black outfit. You can’t go wrong with it. Also, a comfy, simple tee is always good for traveling in.

Black Pants

See above. All-black EVERYTHING.

Jade Roller

Still obsessed with jade rollers. For those that don’t believe they work — just try it.

Workout Clothes

It’s tough, but I need to find time to work out, even on vacation. Good workout gear makes that a little easier.

Extra Battery

Obvious but SO essential. There is nothing worse than a long flight without a phone. And now that a lot of airlines have wifi, a drained battery is even more inevitable.


Even if I’m traveling somewhere cold, I always pack a swimsuit. You never know when you might need it.

Back Roller

Taking a flight, especially a long one, is never good for your posture. This is my secret weapon for getting rid of back pain. Now it’s yours, too

Nail File

One of the greatest inventions ever, IMO. Don’t know what I would do without this in my suitcase.

Gym Band

The beauty of the gym band is that it really makes an impact on your workout, yet it packs down super easily into even small luggage cases.


Such an underrated travel item, but something I always make sure to pack. Travel is draining, especially when you’re working. Something like Vitamin B or C can help with tiredness. Vitamins for the skin also work wonders after that dry plane air.
