So that is it. I’m on this plane, flying away from home. How lucky I am that there is nobody sitting next to me. After all this time I’m finally beginning a new chapter of my life and I can’t be more excited. Even if I’m moving to a city that I already know quite well, it is a very refreshing new start.

I’m afraid that I over packed a litte bit – only 10kg over … – as it’s the first time I’m leaving for so long. I’ll do better next time ! I also have a carry-on and my handbag with me on the plane, which I am used to pack, and that’s what I want to talk about.

I always bring the same reassuring few things in my handbag everytime I fly, so here are my essentials:

Frist things first, I take my laptop and some headphones to work or watch a movie.
I also have a case where I keep a hand sanitizer and a mini-sized hand-cream, a very moisturizing lip balm and hair ties. And as I wear contact lenses I must bring their case and a mini sized solution bottle, as well as a little mirror.
Additionally, if I’m going somewhere right after the flight, I like to touch up with a light concealer and some translucent powder.

Moreover, I always have room for snacks and chewing-gums in my handbag too ! A perfect snack for me will be for sure some fruit or dry-fruit, a handful almonds, or a low sugar granola bar.
I’m also super cold in flights so I make sure to bring a comfy sweater.

So that is it for my essentials, comment below what are yours !
