Weekend GetAway Travel Essentials

As summer is slowly approaching, the desire to just get away for a few day seems more and more appealing. I recently teamed up with HomeAway to put together a list of my top 5 travel essentials.

The first thing that I immediately thought about was sunscreen and how important it is, to take care of your skin. Although it sounds trivial, you'd be surprised about the number of people that forget to bring sunscreen to the beach.
Another essential of mine are portable chargers. If you are the proud owner of an iPhone, than you'd probably suffered from low battery anxiety more than once. Portable chargers fit in most bags as they are quite compact and they'll save the day!
If you want to avoid having to throw half used bottles of conditioner and shampoo away because you overpacked by the end of your stay, I'd highly recommend buying travel-sized lotions. They can be found in the aisle of most supermarkets or drugstores and also only cost a fraction of the full-sized product. Personally, I find buying travel-sized products really exciting because you get to try out new products that you may not have bought before.
I always bring a canvas tote bag with me. They can be found in almost every store and will save your holiday in case you overpack! Moreover, you don't have to worry about them breaking or getting dirty as they can easily be put into the washing machine.
Lastly, a perfect get away is not complete without a good book! I find that I get a lot more reading done during my time away, than I would have at home. A current favourite of mine is Girl on the Train!
