How to Travel on a plane in comfort | Best Carry-on Bags!

My favorite travel accessories make flying so comfortable. I also share my favorite carry-on-bags to travel in car rides, domestic and international flights and also walk you through what I pack in my carry on luggage.

Like many of you, I enjoy traveling but don’t care for the long flights. I found these accessories really helped me to fall asleep on an airplane, and having the right bag for easy access is a simple way to reduce stress. So if you are nervous about flying or just don’t know what to pack for your next road trip, I hope you find these travel gadgets helpful!

It’s a great channel for those interested in a purse forum, bag blog, etc., and hopefully, you learn a little something about plein air painting, travel tips, purse organization, and other odds and ends along the way! Plus, you’ll get to see what’s in my purse such as my filofax and leather pouches.

You can follow me on my Instagram account where I post lots of photos daily/weekly of my bags in action:

MY NEW WEBSITE** full of my favorite leather bags (lots of photos!) Some might call it a purse blog, others might call it a bag blog, I just call it a collection of some of the best leather bags I’ve found so far!

    LOVED your aged leather bag….I want one!!!!

  2. brainmatterz on July 4, 2018 at 7:11 am

    I’m not watching videos anymore that don’t get to the poin within the first minute. I don’t care about your sister, your emotional attitude to flying, or where you live for that matter.

  3. Jenn Piach on July 4, 2018 at 7:13 am

    There are other versions of that pillow on amazon.

  4. mcmlxxxv_ jsl on July 4, 2018 at 7:16 am

    You’re so cute in explaining things. 😉 Keep it up girl! 👍👍👍

    I look for a bag that opens wide. I like to be able to see everything in my bag with a quick glance and especially off my shoulder if it is shoulder style. I like unlined wide open compartments with zip along one wall and opposite wall for my hand lotion. An outside pocket too.

  6. Angela Spencer on July 4, 2018 at 7:17 am

    Just found your channel. Brilliant info hilarious 2… Xx

  7. Marcy Stroud on July 4, 2018 at 7:17 am

    Have you tried Kelly Moore bags? They are photographer bags, but you can take out the cushioned insert and they are great and well thought-through bags! Some are faux leather that really is gorgeous and some real leather. I just got the Two Sues bag…it’s my second KM bag! Give them a look! 👍

  8. Amelia B on July 4, 2018 at 7:20 am

    These are great items. I’ve also tried several neck pillows and found them uncomfortable. I love your Frey bag. I love compartments, pockets too. Now I will hope to find one like yours. Thanks for the video.

    so, like literally about twelve years ago, my father’s cousin gave him this pillow that his sister bring him from home, in florida. btw we live in brazil. he thought it would be great for my dad since he had really bad back issues. he passed in 2011, we never known it as "trtl pillow" and we never figured out how to used this frecking thing so he end up giving it to me straight after getting it. i’m moving to italy in 45 days and my mum suggest me taking this "pillow" … said no .. but now, heck yas! in my mind, it was some sort of weird hot towel.. thanks for answering the longest doubt of my life!

    Realllyyyy looonnnngggg

  11. Kip on July 4, 2018 at 7:27 am

    The black bag = the one you have the crunchy neck pillow tucked into? What brand is it? It’s lovely!

  12. Julie Woods on July 4, 2018 at 7:27 am

    As almost all the world uses the metric system, it would be useful to put the suit case dimensions in cms or mm as well as inches.

  13. Juliette Walker on July 4, 2018 at 7:28 am

    Loved this video my travel on is a Lug bag zipper closer for security lots of pockets your ideas are great thank you for sharing

  14. Jessica Dinnie on July 4, 2018 at 7:31 am

    I found your channel because I was looking for a new bag to buy for a trip 🤣

  15. Sara Hyma on July 4, 2018 at 7:32 am

    Very helpful! Traveling to Florida in a month. Hoping the 4 of us can just carry on. From Zeeland, Michigan.

  16. Dee Freeman on July 4, 2018 at 7:32 am

  17. SuperMurray51 on July 4, 2018 at 7:32 am

    I bought the Bose headphones for my grown up kids for CHRISTMAS! THEY LOVE THEM!!!!!!

  18. Valerie M on July 4, 2018 at 7:34 am

    I’m planning for a European vacation, travel often but always feel unprepared. Love your video will definitely use your tips!

  19. segundina douthwaite on July 4, 2018 at 7:34 am

    Where do you buy your leather bag,

  20. Kay Kay on July 4, 2018 at 7:35 am

    Love your personality sooo cute and funny

  21. Kathleen Giacalone on July 4, 2018 at 7:36 am

    How heavy are your bags if you carry a laptop?

  22. Teacher's advices on July 4, 2018 at 7:37 am

    Leather is sooo heavy, I love it but I avoid it due the weight.

  23. Honey sweetness on July 4, 2018 at 7:39 am

    may I suggest that you check out the healthy back bag company.

  24. tucsoncarol on July 4, 2018 at 7:40 am

    Swedish Fish everywhere. That sort of describes my life.

  25. lorna nunez on July 4, 2018 at 7:40 am

    First of all not everyone have multiple. People don’t fly in there bags, thay would ended in the cargo hole. There are more important things to do think about than our bags. You and your bag look a like are you identical twins?

  26. TheLotusrising on July 4, 2018 at 7:40 am

    The neck pillow sounds great !! Definitely something to buy for mom for mother’s day as she also carries all those bulky neck pillows.

  27. Imn Nai on July 4, 2018 at 7:42 am

    Loved the video, useful and fun

  28. Tandem Bicycle on July 4, 2018 at 7:42 am

    Love this video. Great tips and bags. Love that turtle pillow too. These things would make nice gifts!!!! 😍

  29. Sj's Journey on July 4, 2018 at 7:42 am

    Thank you for the video! You provide awesome product demonstrations & encouraged me to purchase items I’d have never considered to improve my travel.

    I LOVE your videos – you’re like Macgyver for gals! So many well thought out details and tools on your channel that make life so much easier for us girls! : )

  31. Lisa Spikes on July 4, 2018 at 7:44 am

    I find leather bags too heavy for travel. I prefer lightweight bags. And I like a zipper top, since you have to stow the bag under the seat, and I don’t like having my stuff fall out. And you can wash lightweight synthetic bags. Airplanes are filthy!

  32. brainmatterz on July 4, 2018 at 7:44 am

    Leather bags are HEAVY. I wouldn’t do it for Europe. Keep it light.

  33. fumemanv on July 4, 2018 at 7:46 am

    Great info.helpful..thanx for posting…

  34. Hillary Edwards on July 4, 2018 at 7:47 am

    Great personality! Love those tips. Especially the eye pad, because sometimes people have there window open and the sun in my eyes, and feels uncomfortable. Thank you!!!

  35. corikay on July 4, 2018 at 7:48 am

    This is a really wonderful video full of great travel tips! Thank you so much for sharing this information… I am a fairly new subscriber, and have been binge watching your videos!…Looking forward to more!!! Happy Easter!

  36. Amelia B on July 4, 2018 at 7:49 am

    I would love to see some of your art work. First time watching your videos, so not sure if you’ve shown it before. Hope so.

  37. Diana Hoang on July 4, 2018 at 7:50 am

    You’re hilarious! Considering the turtle neck pillow because on my last flight I had the worst neck-ache from sleeping on the plane and I was using a beaded neck pillow.

  38. Tru Neilson on July 4, 2018 at 7:50 am

    I never have an open top bag it has to zip/seal closed…I hate the idea of people seeing/reaching into my bag.
    My public library loans digital book on tape for free …and you can do it from home just like audible. I use it all the time not just for travel, it’s great in my car or when I’m working in the yard.
    Ginger helps with motionsickness, my little girl puked every car ride until I gave her real gingersnaps.Try a couple cookies it’s a nice way to avoid getting ill.

    Difficult to decide on bag….

  45. Anita B. on July 4, 2018 at 8:03 am

    Try to carry a bag that can be zipped up for security purposes.

  46. Arlene Bauby on July 4, 2018 at 8:04 am

    Can you add the neckscarf link? It’s not the correct link. Thx

  47. Paulette H on July 4, 2018 at 8:05 am
