Road Trip Essentials + Tavel Giveaway

Road trips are the epitome of summer. Theres just something about throwing everything in the car and going on an adventure. Even though the destination is where you are going, doesn’t mean the journey has to be boring. It could be epic. Here are some road trip essentials to make your journey one of the best parts!

Comfy Outfit

We all want to be wearing a cute outfit incase come photo ops come up, but you also want to be comfy for sitting in the car for hours on end. And accessories can easily be thrown on! Opt for flowy pants/skirts or a pair of boyfriend jeans with a tee.


No road trip is complete without an amazing playlist. Songs that are perfect for summer and you can all sing along to. And that can keep you awake at night!

A Plan

Road trips can be spontaneous but you still need an idea of where you are going and what you are going to do. Look at all the restaurants, hotels and attractions along the way. Also bring a map because you never know when you won’t have cell service.


You never know when you’ll be able to stop for food so having snacks is a must! If you are trying to eat healthy, you can cut up fruit and vegetables and keep it in a cooler. There are also protein bars, nuts and other things you can bring.


Sometimes music isn’t enough and you need to keep yourselves entertained. Audiobooks and podcasts are great. You can also play the license plate game or other car games we used to play growing up.

Beauty Essentials

A shower may not always be an option, so dry shampoo, facials mists and perfume will help you get through the long days on the road. If you want, you can even do a sheet mask while in the car since it doesn’t make a mess and your face will feel refreshed afterwards!
