Your “Out of Office” email autoresponder is on. Your bags are (almost) packed. It’s official: you’re ready for that getaway. But, wait… is your carry-on missing something? Don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of our favorite travel products that you tend to forget, but need on your next trip. 

 
travel tips for clothes
No wrinkles here! 

We all know the struggle of unpacking what you thought was a perfectly organized suitcase (you’re rolling your clothes, right?) or getting off the airplane looking a wrinkled mess. Our solution: Downy Wrinkle-Releaser. The perfect size for your carry-on, this product works like magic. Just spray it right on your clothes and wave all those annoying creases goodbye. You’ll be ready to get up and go in no time. 

 
traveling tips flying
Say goodbye to sickness in the sky.

It’s a well-known fact that more people get sick on planes. Before you board, do yourself a favor and grab some travel-size anti-bacterial wipes. Great for sanitizing seats, trays and even bathroom handles, these wipes will always come in handy. 

 
sleep mask
Get some shuteye. 

Wait, an eye mask can reduce headaches, relieve stress or even diminish the signs of aging? Sign us up! There’s no better feeling than getting good rest on a long (or even short) flight. Take our advice—invest in a silk eye mask and start vacation well rested.

 
beauty tips travel
Travel-size coverage. 

This award-winning IT Cosmetics CC Cream is life-changing. We repeat life-changing. A full-coverage, anti-aging, color-correcting cream with SPF 50+ sunscreen, it’s no wonder this easy-to-use product is a bestseller. Pack this travel-size CC cream with you for easy, on-the-go touch-ups you and your skin are going to love.

 
traveling headphones
Tune in, drop out. 

Whether it’s your noisy neighbor blaring Netflix on their laptop or the sound of a baby crying, loud noises can be damaging for your hearing, raise blood pressure and give you a serious headache. Swap out the loud sounds on your next flight for some sweet beats with noise-cancelling headphones! Invest in a pair of Bose headphones and rock out safely. 

 
hair travel tips
Guaranteed good hair day. 

Does anyone else love dry shampoo as much as we do? This VERB Dry Shampoo had a 2,000 person wait list, and we can see why. It’s travel-friendly and great for every hair type. The formula refreshes your luscious locks, removes oil, and boosts body. For added volume, try using Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask. You and your tresses will look luxurious in no time (5-7 minutes to be exact!). Both of these products will have your hair looking fabulous, even after the longest day in the air (or on the road).


Kick off your vacation on a high note with these must-have items for your list. Now, you can escape with ease knowing you’re covered.

Not Too Cheesy: Vegan "Cheese" Recipes That Taste Like The Real Thing

Recipes

We all love cheese. And if you don’t love cheese, well, you just haven’t found the right kind for you. If you’re unlucky like me, however, cheese does not like you. Thankfully, we live in 2020, where plant-based cheese recipes are alive and well.

I have been dairy-free for a few years, and cheese is truly the food group I miss the most. As much as we try, we sometimes just can’t get vegan cheese to taste like the real thing. So, I recruited my dairy-loving, cow-consuming friends to be my taste-testers. Their brutal honesty helped me create some “fake” cheese that can actually compete with the real stuff.

Goat "Cheese" Ball

Did you know you can make mouth-watering “fake” cheese with macadamia nuts? Yes, macadamia nuts. If you’re craving that creamy consistency but your stomach isn’t down for dairy, try out this recipe inspired by Simple Vegan Blog
