A Girl’s “Gadgets” | My Packing Essentials for Long-Term Travel

It’s my turn! My list of packing essentials for every girl on-the-go.

So.. 2-weeks ago Gerard came up with a list of his packing essentials for long-term travel. No surprise there — gadgets (what a geek!).

I’m a simple girl. Most days, jeans and a t-shirt, hair in a pony tail and concealer for my baggy eyes will suffice. But for 8 months?! Even I like to look good every now and then, so you can be sure I’m packing a wee bit more than just bare bones. (Just don’t tell G that. He’ll hardly notice.)

So without further ado, here are a few of my must-have essentials, or as I like to point out to Gerard, my “gadgets” for long-term travel.

 

1. Dry Shampoo

blow faux dry shampoo Confession. I don’t wash my hair every day. Ladies, I’m sure some of you can relate, right? blow’s faux dry shampoo is the perfect solution for getting rid of that day two excess oily hair do. Just wish I had known sooner. I could have avoided many glossy hair dos (or donts) in photos.

What I love most? It’s carry-on travel friendly at 2.4 oz and.. it’s dry. No liquids! A little bit goes a long, long way. | $20

 

2. Girl’s Grooming Kit

Tweezer. Filer. Razor. For me, it’s a look good, feel good kind-of-thing so a girl’s grooming kit is a must. I can barely go without shaving my armpits for 8 days let alone 8 months! TMI? Perhaps.. but you know you’re thinking the same and nodding in agreement with me. Nobody ever said long-term travel means you should stop caring about how you look (and feel).

 

3. Make-Up

‘I need to put on my face’ before leaving the house. Heard that one before? Guilty. So what exactly is ‘my face’? Foundation. Concealer. Finishing Powder. Honestly if I were to strip down and go bare, these 3 items are all I really need for the faux naturale look.

Benefit Play Stick in Jump Rope

 

4. LBD / LBV

Every girl needs a little black dress preferably in a light jersey fabric. Don’t forget to pack an LBT (little black thong) to go with that. You never know when you’re going to get invited to a special event (hoping a wedding in India).

An LBV is my little black vest and it has become one of the most versatile garment in my entire luggage! It’s the perfect piece to spruce up that old t-shirt look. Good enough to turn your day wear to an evening out-on-the-town. Throw it over your LBD for something that’s fresh and chic. If you can find the perfect vest, you can do wonders to your minimal wardrobe on the road.

 

5. Mini Chi Straightener

Personally, my hair sucks especially right out of the shower without a blow dry. Unnatural waves like morning bed hair in humid weather. So I straighten virtually every day just to look somewhat “normal”. I’ve permanently Mini Chi Flat Iron

straightened it once while in Vietnam and it was awesome, but I can’t justify spending the $’s to do it here. |$39.99

I have this weird feeling I’m not going to be running into many hair dryers while abroad. Still debating if I should bring my mini Conair hair dryer. It’s mini. It might fit. But is it necessary? (Help: Need a girly girl’s opinion on this one) | $19.99

 

6. Skincare

Moisturize, Cleanse & Treatment. If you haven’t picked it up already, I work in the cosmetic industry so you best believe taking care of my skin is high on my priority list especially when traveling in unpredictable and changing climates.

  • L’Oreal Active Daily Moisturizer | $7.99
  • bareMinerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser| $26
  • Olay Night Moisturizing Treatment | $21.99

This is just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve barely drafted my complete packing list and already I’m feeling nauseated. Testing the minimalist in me for sure. If anything, I’ll take out a pair of jeans or shoes to make room for these must-have essentials. It’s a girl thing.

What’s your one packing essential you can’t leave home without?

    I have just discovered dry shampoo and it is GOLD! Easily the one beauty product I now refuse to travel without. I have a great LBD that can worn two ways (low cut in front or low cut in back) and it’s fabulous for any night out. And I swear by my Neutrogena SPF 30+ moisturizer!

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      Isn’t the dry shampoo amazing?!! Lol. Do tell on the LBD. I’m actually in the market for a new one for our big trip. Preferably one that can be worn multiple ways. Does the Neutrogena SPF 30 moist feel like a moisturizer? I don’t like it when it starts to feel like sunblock which is why I like the L’Oreal. It’s feels super light and smells good too. :)

    you’re ahead of the game! it’s not good to wash your hair every day anyhow! 😉 I haven’t found a dry shampoo i really like so i’ll have to give your recommendation a try!

    My hair turns into this fuzzball of horror if i don’t CAREFULLY blowdry it every day. Good thinking on the CHI…i need to try a new flat iron. [so unfair that i don’t have typical straight japanese hair!] :(

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      Tell me about it. The only thing with my mini Chi is you can’t adjust the heat. Just one setting so when I was in S.America, it wasn’t as hot as I’d like it to be. More like need it to be to straighten my untamed hair. *sigh*

    I love your list – we’re so similar! One thing I would add is a pumice stone, your feet get pretty disgusting with all the extra walking you do while traveling (especially if you’re wearing flip-flops for an extended time).

    How many watts is the mini hairdryer you have? I had a travel hairdryer once that did absolutely nothing – the one I have now is amazing (1800W) but it’s a bit more bulky and probably wouldn’t fit in your bag.

    Personally I wouldn’t travel without one – my hair is uncontrollable without blowdrying before straightening.

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      See… this is why i ask YOU! G wouldn’t understand me justifying my “gadgets”. Lol. Are there cheap blow dryers in Australia? Thinking I should just pick one up once I arrive and then leaving it behind afterwards. Good call on the p. stone. 😉

    Love this post! I’m not leaving for months and I’ve already started thinking about my outfits. It sure beats thinking about visas and vaccines.

    I love dry shampoo- I use Oscar Blandi and the little bottle has lasted me for over a year. I also use a ton of Bare Escentuals products, but all of the little containers and brushes are so bulky, I’m wondering if I should switch brands for the trip.

    The LBD is a good idea. I’m considering getting one of those convertible dresses for the trip, but wondering if I’ll actually like the various styles or if I should just stick with simple dresses and layer. So much to think about.. :)

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      Ugh.. so glad the vaccines are over. We’re dealing with Visas next week.

      As for my bareMinerals, I’m taking my pot of foundation, the new quad palette eyeshadow and tinted mineral veil plus their double- ended brush. I carry them im my purse day in and out anyway so why not.

      I’m debating on replacing my LBD for a convertible one. Just haven’t found one that is versatile and cute. =) Decisions.. decisions..

    Hi Kieu, I saw your question about the hair dryer on twitter. I have naturally wavy hair. I did bring a hair dryer but hardly used it. It depends what countries you are going to travel to. All through SE Asia and other humid places it was a waste of time to blow dry, 15 minutes later and it was all wavy and frizzy again anyways. I brought a couple of more lady like looking bandanas and a cute hat to wear occasionally. It’s a tough call since you said it is really tiny.

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      Yea.. mine does not hold up well in humid climates. *sigh* Good call on the bandanas. I’m still trying to find the perfect all around hat. In the past, I would just cut my hair short and pig-tail it all the way. But that was 2 maybe 3 weeks tops. 8 months is going to be a challenge. Honestly I should test pack first and see if I can even fit it in my carry-on luggage. Haha

    • http://WanderlustandtheGirl.com/ LAbackpackerChick

      a good leave in conditioner has saved my naturally frizzy dry hair in humid climates. i use Abba and travel with a full size bottle as to not run out. i happened once and it wasn’t good!

      i’ve now even ditched my flat iron on my travels because i invest in the japanese straightening treatment twice a year. surprisingly easy to find when traveling and cheaper than at home too 😉

      • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

        Leave in conditioner! That sounds like heaven. I hate my frizzy hair in humid weather. Especially here in Australia. I’m waiting to get to Thailand for my treatment. Way cheaper! Lol. Haha

    A new discovery that sort of is an all-in-one: I bring my bottle of Argan oil with me – skin, hair, face – it goes for everything and it’s so perfect for me since I’ve got a little bit of a skin condition that is SOMEWHAT handled by argan oil.

    oh and i just discovered your blog through Pinay On the Move’s contest — congratulations! :)
    You are bookmarked and google readered! :)

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      Ooohh… Love all-in-one tips! I’ll need to check out Argan oil. Will it work for dry skin too? I’m totally going to sneak in the hair dryer in my luggage. Just hope it fits. Lol.

      Thanks for trippin’ by!

        Well, my Mom swears by it. I sort of am a hesitant convert but ONLY because I don’t want to prove my mom right. lol. It’s great!

        I have combination skin and it worked fine for me on all aspects. :) It also works as hair serum so I don’t bring conditioner with me anymore. People also use it on food – haven’t tried it on that though.

        • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

          A conditioner replacement? This I have to try. And.. on food?! Really? That might be stretching it for me. Lol. Thanks for the tip.

    I have a few favorite items to recommend! My favorite is the travel skort – the ones that look like a regular skirt but have shorts underneath. They are perfect for the hot climates, you still can look cute, and you can avoid flashing people when you get on and off random modes of transportation! Another fav is the spray leave in conditioner. On the days that you only have a cold shower available and really want to wash your hair, this will get you out of that cold water much faster! Can’t wait to read about your adventures!

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      oOo.. I haven’t heard of spray leave in conditioner. That sounds awesome, especially for long-term! Any particular brand you’d recommend? Thanks for trippin’ by!

      • http://www.dontwastelife.com Shani

        I think the first one I tried was a little trial size from bumble and bumble but they should have tons of different choices at the grocery store or the beauty supply store. I haven’t really found too mich of a difference other than how yummy each one smells!

    Dry shampoo is the best, isn’t it?? We love it, and we use it a lot when we travel in areas that don’t have hot showers and I refuse to wash my hair. And we love the little shampoo bars from LUSH – they last forever (over a month) and take up such little space in our luggage.

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      OOoh I love the LUSH bars too. I tested it out over the Summer and think it’s great. But how do you keep it dry in the little tin can? Mine got stuck in there and I couldn’t get it out. Lol. Did you try the conditioner bar as well?

    Hey lady! I’m late to the party, but nice work getting your list together… I’m still trying to figure out what to take re: personal care. I’m not too fussy with makeup, hair, etc., but I also don’t want to end up half way around the world and feeling scuzzy, forced to pay for some random product I might not like. Do you want to know my secret fear? A year without pedicures 😉 I probably won’t actually pack polish…but I’m going to have to be on the lookout for a stop or two while we’re on the road. Cute toes make the whole world feel better. :)

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      Hahaha. My fear? I dread the thought of random foreign products that may or may not make me go bald. Lol. So a little secret.. I’m packing polish (just one universal shade) and a travel size bottle of remover. I’m just not listing it or telling G. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do (for cute toes)! I’ll be fine once we hit Asia. Cheap PEDI!! Yay!

      • Lisa

        Q, have you tried the polish remover in travel packets, like glass wipes?

        • http://www.GQtrippin.com/ Kieu – GQ trippin

          NOooooooo.. they have those?! Any good??

    • http://WanderlustandtheGirl.com/ LAbackpackerChick

      i travel with a mini mani/pedi kit i bought at Target. also with a mini polish in a neutral color so not much remover is needed like with a bright or dark color that starts chipping away.

      my advice: take 1-2 full size products of things you can’t live without. i went nuts in SE Asia unable to find a face scrub or leave in conditioner as good as mine from home. everything else doesn’t matter and you can usually find general hygenie brand names anywhere for soap/shampoo/etc.

      • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

        I brought a clipper but totally had to buy a filer and buffer abroad. I should probably stock up on a good face scrub before leaving Australia for SE Asia then huh?! O the joys of being a girl. Lol

    Get a “good bikini wax ” before, and your good in that area for several months. Also what about your nails and toes, bring some nail files and natural buffer. Never forget a bit of blush and lip gloss (or does that go without saying?).

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      I completely forgot a buffer! Had to pick one up abroad because my toes were looking no no by week 3. Haha. Blush and lipgloss goes without saying. 😉

    Having traveled in both Asia and South America I have come across some gritty old toilets. Whether that’s on a bus, in a restaurant, hotel toilets or public toilets. I always carry a little pouch with a travel sized toilet roll, hand sanitizer and very important my Shewee. I never like sitting on toilets, there is hardly ever toilet paper around when you need it, and as a girl I don’t need to tell you how hard it is to pee in a straight line when you are using a squat toilet. The Shewee has been my life saver many times. Yes it feels weird and manly, but I never travel without it. :-)

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com Kieu – GQ trippin

      LOL! I’ve been squatting for months now and still can’t manage to pee in a straight line. TMI, I know. But it’s really hard. Hehe. Omigod! I’ve never heard of a Shewee.. just googled it and had to laugh. I can’t believe they make that stuff but it’s genius! Do you just carry that around in your purse or something? Haha
