We don’t always travel for vacation (although we wish it were so). In fact, our trips might be for business most of the time. This means space-saving and organization is essential. Imagine the horror of being a half a world apart from your charger… or your blending brush five minutes before that big meeting.
We’ll keep that image out of reality with these sleek and compact items that will keep your travel essentials neat and easy to carry around.
Footwear is always essential when going around the globe. Switch out of your pumps and boots with your Yosi Samra flats in Vienna (P3,759) which you can fold and fit in your purse. Good to carry between connecting flights and in between Uber rides.
Yosi Samra. Available at SM Mega Fashion Hall. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
Manicures abroad are expensive and sometimes, we don’t have time to get ourselves to a spa while sightseeing. Keep your tips clean and polished with this Rimowa Manicure Set (price available upon request). Have everything you need from cleaning, cutting, and filing in something as small as a credit card.
Rimowa. Available at Greenbelt 5. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
On a series of red-eye flights or just simply for that cross-country trip, have a wallet that can keep your tickets, boarding passes, and multiple currencies organized. The simple La Pochette Long Wallet by John & Klaire (P1,300) is all you need to keep yourself from losing what’s necessary.
When packing your foundation, blush, contour, highlight, liquid lipsticks, plus your hair tools and styling products, a bag that will help you set-up and do makeup is best. This cute Percy & Reed What A Carry-On Beauty Bag (P1,750) helps you know where every tool and product is so you won’t have a hair strand nor a lip liner out of place.
Speaking of beauty items, one must always have their favorite or signature scent on hand. But who has the time and effort to lug around a big crystal bottle that will surely suffer some breakage somewhere on the flight? Instead, put your favorite perfume in a Travalo (P1,000). Save money and space while smelling good.
Travalo. Available at SM North EDSA. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
During business meetings, we know you’re lugging around your laptop to keep up with your emails and presentations. Look out for your trusty work partner by keeping it in the sleek Herschel Anchor Sleeve (P1,500). The padded fleece and linen lining helps you make sure it doesn’t collect dust while having enough space for the charger.

Of course, everything wouldn’t be a traveling success if you don’t have a good suitcase. The Delsey Helium 2 is a lightweight trolley case with a slim design so you can carry everything you need without worrying about carrying around something really bulky.
