What's in My Carry On? Travel Essentials

My dad and I will be leaving New York on Friday night and staying in Orange, California for two nights before we scoop up my brother and fly to Auckland, New Zealand. The flight to Los Angeles is about 6 hours - a relatively short flight, for most of which I will probably watch a movie or edit videos. Check out my YouTube channel!
Inside my Neverfull, I have a few necessities: iPhone, MacBook, Nikon CoolPix, and all chargers, sweatshirt, fuzzy socks, lip balm, hand sanitizer, passport, wallet, headphones. All of these items are linked below! Since many of these items are small and the Neverfull is rather large, I use my Prada cosmetic case to help organize. I got mine on sale in Saks Fifth Avenue a few years ago, but have linked similar ones, with different price points, HERE and HERE.
LV | WALLET 
C.O. BIGELOW | LIP SALVE
CLINIQUE | SWEET POTS
APPLE | MACBOOK 
NIKON | COOLPIX
BOSE | HEADPHONES
GERM•X | SANITIZER
APPLE | iPHONE
KATE SPADE | PASSPORT COVER
ATHLETA | SWEATSHIRT
NORDSTROM | SOCKS 
PRADA | *see above* 

The next leg of our travel is closer to 14 hours. On most of these longer flights, I sleep as much as possible, sometimes even passing up on meal(s) served. I'll be bringing my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM (above) as my personal item and my TUMI V3 (below) as my carry on. For someone who travels often, investing in quality luggage was important for me.

No matter where I'm headed, I always bring a change of clothes in my overhead carry-on. I have been on several trips where my luggage has been lost (including my bridesmaid dress in 2014.) I'm always cold, so layers are a priority, no matter where I'm headed. Find all of these items below!

7FAM | JEANS
TORY BURCH | FLATS 
VS | UNDIES 
TARGET | T SHIRT
BP | SWEATER
GUCCI | BELT 

Another item I make sure to keep close is whatever jewelry I plan on wearing during the trip(s). As sad as it is, I have had more than one friend have her checked luggage rummaged through resulting in stolen items. I use this case by Kate Spade because it has several different compartments which are great for organization and avoiding tangling.

Make-up is the final item that I take in my carry on. None of my liquids are over TSA regulation size, but you should always check your labels first. This Kate Spade travel train case keeps all of my make-up separated in different compartments so I can easily find everything I need.

What are some of your carry on essentials?
