Hawaii Safe Travels

Create a profile on the Hawaii Safe Travel website once and you are good to go! I created my profile in November of 2020 and it has been so easy to maintain. Just add in your new itinerary and the system will email you a QR code to use at the airport.


we packed two AWAY bags for this trip (I know, I KNOW)

 save $20 on your first AWAY suitcase or bag

AWAY replaced all of my broken suitcases after years of issues -> read all about it here and they’ve survived the trip (so far)

if you’re looking for premium luggage just snag this bag and call it a day

my amazon packing cubes are not aesthetically pleasing but they rock!

Shoes + Sandals

I somehow fit all of these in my carry-on suitcase!

Pro Tip: Always wear your chunkiest shoes on the plane to save space in your bag.

#TrustMe when I tell you to snag these Havianas! They just started carrying them at Target and they are truly the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned. If they can survive hours of walking around the cobblestone streets of San Miguel – they can survive ANYTHING!

$30 Havianas Luna Sandals

my favorite sweatshirt brand VARLEY just dropped sandals and they are a HARD yes


love this amazon beach bag – under $20

I’m pretty sure we all own the $38 Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag by now – but have you checked out the Crossbody Camera Bag? She’s a bit more expensive at $78 but she’s a travel dream and she looks RICH!

you can FINALLY preorder the $88 Canvas Tote that I love to travel with

and I used my beloved large Telfar shopping bag as my personal item on the plane

I hate wearing bras in Hawaii and opt for the Amazon nipple covers (that come with their own travel case)

99% of the time

but when I HAVE to wear a bra I opt for the SKIMS $28 Fits Everybody Bandeau Bralette (size large)

and when I need something with an underwire I really only reach for this adult strapless bra from SPANX because the band is so comfortable and doesn’t dig into my rib cage AT ALL – KATXSPANX discount code

and if I choose to workout out – this amazon dupe for my favorite lululemon sports bra is IT!
