Travel Backpack- Tumi is my favorite! Tumi has so many styles and colors to choose from, plus mine has a cell phone pocket and for security, a zipper pocket with RFID protection. Check out their website or benefit from resale sites like Poshmark and The RealReal for a deal!

Liquids Bag- This bag is perfect for security checkpoints & is also approved by TSA!
DripDrop-Sometimes it is hard to stay hydrated while traveling. I have tried several hydration products and found that I liked this one the best for two reasons. First is mixed the easiest and second is the flavors since of course if it doesn't taste good I am not going to drink it!
Clothing- I love Athleta, I am ALL about #POWERofShe. Locally, Old Navy and of course Target has great options. Pro-Tip, Resale sites are perfect for finding workout gear so remember to check out sites like Poshmark! My latest obsession, Sweaty Betty!
Paint Markers-What don't I use these on? I love that depending on the contents I can choose a color easily seen. The best part, it almost always washes off in the dishwasher. For containers that store my flours or sugars, items that last longer, occasionally I have to use a little bit of Goo Gone to get the final bit off. No biggie!
