If you follow me on Instagram (@publyssity) or Snapchat (alyssaamoroso), it’s clear to see that I’m always traveling during the summer months. In fact, my suitcase has doubled into a closet and my cosmetic case has become home to all of my essentials – like my makeup, personal care items, etc.
That said, I’ve actually found this method to be really helpful. I load my cosmetic case with everything I’ll need to get through the week, weekend or workday. I like having one case with everything vs. a million small bags with just some of my items. It’s easier for me to make sure I’m not forgetting to pack anything when I’m switching between carry-on luggage to tote bag to gym bag.
