dérrive carry on essentials

dérrive carry on essentials

i am off to new york this sunday for 3 weeks to see my best friends and meet their baby girl bambi <3 ! i am so ridiculously excited! i am starting to prepare everything and this includes my carry on essentials. a flight from brisbane to new york is not a short one (10 hours to seoul, korea and then 14 hours to JFK). it will be long and gruelling, so preparation is key if i am going to survive :o . my goal is always to feel as warm, clean, moisturized and comfortable as possible. here are some of my favourite things and maybe some carry on inspiration for you and your next trip :) xx
