    Here's Everything You Need To Travel Light

    I know someone who recently went on a week-long trip with just a Jansport backpack — it held everything they needed including their laptop.

    1. A multipurpose travel wallet that has plenty of space for all the documents you need and a pen, because good luck finding one of those when you need to fill out all those customs documents!

    2. A set of packing cubes capable of sectioning off and holding so much stuff, so that your suitcase is never an absolute mess.

    3. An ultra light-weight puffer jacket you can easily roll up and stuff into your carry on.

    4. A packing list pad that'll make sure you're packing everything you need and not 876 ballgowns, because apparently when you're on vacation you become the type of person who goes to galas?

    5. A digital luggage scale so you can measure your big ol' bag before you check it in and avoid that bajillion dollar overweight luggage fee.

    6. A washable and inflatable headrest you can roll up and store away — no more pillow necklaces for you, only diamond ones from now on.

    7. A genius little Pocket Palette — it includes mascara, BB cream, and blush/lip tint that'll have you looking fly without having to carry your entire makeup bag around.

    8. A collapsible water bottle you can take through security empty, fill up at a water fountain, and have enough water to stay hydrated throughout your flight.

    9. A pack of travel-friendly laundry detergent that'll make traveling with fewer clothes way easier — now you can just wash what you bring.

    10. A water-resistant backpack designed with a USB charging port, more than a dozen pockets in multiple sizes, and an anti-theft lock to help keep your stuff safe.

    11. A versatile ruched crew-neck T-shirt dress that'll look amazing dressed up with heels or down with your favorite sneakers — it's basically a million outfits in one.

    12. A reversible vegan-leather travel tote that'll hold everything you might need at a moment's notice — or in the event your luggage doesn't make it.

    13. And a multi-pocketed handbag organizer to help you keep your purse from turning into a black pit of despair.

    14. An adorable mini travel hair straightener, so that you'll always look flawless, even after a 20-hour flight.

    15. Or Drybar's The Jet-Setter Bundle that comes with all the travel essentials you need — their Baby Buttercup Travel Blow-dryer, Tiny Tress Press Detailing Iron, Lil' Lemon Drop Travel Detangling Brush, the Morning After Shower Cap, and travel-size versions of their Detox Dry Shampoo, Dry Conditioner, Triple Sec 3-in-1 Blanc, and Hot Toddy.

    16. A waterproof travel organizer that'll help you keep all your cords, chargers, batteries, flash drives, and cables completely organized.

    17. A Bluetooth foldable keyboard to help turn any of your smart devices into a makeshift laptop — meaning you don't actually have to bring yours.

    18. A machine-washable neck pillow that's soft and flexible to not only fit you perfectly but fit into any tiny space you have available.

    19. A dual-voltage travel steam iron that is so small, it'll fit anywhere — plus its a great way to freshen up your clothes that, maybe, you're wearing more than once between washes.

    20. A super-fast drying microfiber travel towel for anyone hitting the open road sans fancy hotels.

    21. And a pack of refillable perfume bottles, because packing light is no excuse for stinking up the place.

    No more big-ass bags!
