It’s the small things that often keep you on track when traveling, and with that in mind, we recommend these travel-friendly items for dazzling upon arrival:

Pluggz shoes are uber-comfortable flats, specifically designed to massage and support your feet. Ideal for planes and even in hotels as slip-ons to the spa or pool, they’re also lightweight for traveling come in an array of styles and spring colors. Find flip-flops, resort flats, ballet flats and other styles at

Tote Supersmile Icy Mint Quikee and Supersmile Teeth Whitening Gum in your purse or luggage for dazzling white teeth. Anyone skeptical as to whether or not even one piece of gum can make a difference has to try it to believe it – it works, truly. The gel is equally effective for coffee and wine drinkers to restore teeth to their brightest white on vacation or while honeymooning;

Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick are ideal for travel because they’re moisturizing too, so they pull double duty and lighten your load. These high-quality lipsticks also come in the full spectrum of shades to match your events and wardrobe. Pair them with Jane Iredale’s Midnight Blue Eye Pencil (or the color of your choice), and render your arrival a grand entrance. Find them at

Don’t forget your Foster Grant sunglasses! Your eyes need UV protection whether you’re sailing on the Mediterranean or hiking into town from your snow-covered cabin in Maine. Choose your favorite styles at

If you want to pack something gentle and protective for hair color, take along Jane Carter Solution Scalp Nourishing Serum, chock full of essential oils, botanicals and vitamins. Luscious, healthy hair begins at the scalp, especially if you’re traveling to harsh weather climates, so find it at

Cheeki Intimates with 100% cotton lining are ideal for traveling because they’re individually wrapped panties that can be tossed into luggage or purses. They come in various styles and the packets are waterproof, sealed and airtight. They stack and they’re lightweight. Great for the gym, too! In fact, you can find them at gyms and spas in NYC.
