Packing is an art for the travelers since there are many factors to consider, especially for the women. I learned from my sweat & tears experience to really grasp that nirvana state of light travel. Too much possession means too much burden.
I learned a lot through my past travels, and acquired the skills of packing, styling, and stay comfortable as I go. Below are the products I use and has helped my travel smarter and better.
Google Nexus 7 Tablet
This is my favorite tablet to use for reading. The battery life is long, the size is perfect, the resolution is impeccable, and the weight is a godsend for any frequent traveler. I was able to read a lot more blogs and books thanks to it. It's a must-have for productivity.
I took all of the pictures in the blog. After switching several cameras, I landed on this one. It serves well, takes quality photos, high-resolution, easy to use, and even has a Wi-Fi function. Unless there is a lighter, slimmer version of this, I'll stick with this one for a while.
SailsON noise canceling earbuds with microphone
I had 3 Apple earphones in the past and they all broke on me so I decide to give this a try. This ear bud turns out better than I thought. The sound quality is great and I often listen to audiobooks on-the-go.
Things to Keep Me Healthy
Bamboo Charcoal Powder
Betcha didn't know! I learn this from other travelers as well as from my research. The activated charcoal powder can soothe stomach ache, indigestion, and certain types of poisoning. I also use it to brush my teeth sometimes for whitening or make a mask when my acne comes back. This product is quite useful for travel and does not take much space when stored in a small pouch.

I switched from coffee to herbal tea because I notice the calcium level in my body has decreased due to heavy coffee consumption back in the office days. Cleartea is made of natural herbs and does not contain any caffeine. I get energy from the drink and won't feel any crash afterward.
Bago Travel Bags
I am very pleased to upgrade noisy space bag to sleek travel packing cubes. With these packing cubes, I was able to organize my fabric items in my luggage and retrieve it without disturbing anyone.
I dislike sleeping with wobble neck so I've invested in a memory foam pillow. I like the fact that this neck pillow's cover can be removed for cleaning, the memory foam is nice to sleep on, and I can squeeze it in the bag that comes with it to travel.
This handy pouch has 2 side pockets and one large compartment that allows me to fit all of my toiletry products and keep me organized. The interior has some zipped compartments along with more pockets to sort products, it's great for organization and travel. I like to use it because the size is perfect for everything I need.
