I tend to be a really terrible over-packer. Some may use the term ‘chronic over-packer’. But once that bag is more than likely checked, the carry-on is the most important traveling accessory. One wrong move wit the carry-on and your whole flight can be ruined. Believe it or not, I like to keep my carry-on simple and organized. Just the essentials to avoid digging around for boarding passes or chapstick.

First things first, the entertainment. A good iPad/tablet case is great for not only protecting your electronics, but to stash boarding passes and other important papers. In addition to the electronics, I always tote around a few magazines. They are the perfect distraction to help pass the time. Throw in a good pair of headphones and a juice pack for your phone/tablet and all of the entertainment needs are covered.
The bag is pretty important as well. Large enough to comfortably fit all of your belongings and lots of pockets are a must. I always carry cuticle cream to keep my hands soft, chapstick for my lips and a big scarf to keep warm. Lastly, there is nothing worse than that yucky and dirty feeling I have once I get off the plane. I like to bring make-up wipes for a quick refresh.
