Packing the Perfect Carry-On Bag

Whether the flight is long or short, planes can be uncomfortable. They are, after all, just a giant metal tube hurtling through the air. When packing my carry-on bag, I like to make sure that I have everything needed for a comfortable flight as well as items to keep my skin feeling fresh. It also doesn’t hurt to watch old episodes of Gilmore Girls to pass the time while you pack…

As for the bag, I recommend the Longchamp Le Pilage or the L.L. Bean Boat & Tote, which is what I’m using.
