The Wanderer's Toolkit: Our Travel Bag Essentials


We can’t all have magical carpet bags à la Mary Poppins, but what we do have is better: a list of Sheridan’s tried and true travel bag essentials.


Between traveling for coastal US markets and international jet setting, she’s thoughtfully refined what stays and what goes! Read on for her must-haves; they rival Mary Poppins herself.

For Your Bod

Scarves do triple duty, no matter the weather.  They become blankets on long-haul flights, draped cover-ups on the beach, and shoulder shawls for cool summer nights.


Straw toppers make your look instantly travel-chic. Fighting hat hair and shielding skin are plusses, too.


The best way to become a tall drink of water is to drink one — from glass! Beat the expensive and harmful plastic habit with our sleek glass bottles by Manna. 


And yet, staying hydrated means nothing if your feet are screaming. Quiet those toes with on-the-go picks from Kork Ease, Miz Mooz, or OTBT.  These shoes have seen Sheridan from cobbled streets of Soho to hill-climbing around the Haight, and all the way to hard parquet floors at the Louvre — just in this past year alone.

For your Blue Q Pouch

Blue Q zippered pouches are equal parts sass and equal parts quirk, and they're even sourced from recycled materials!  Our travel bag is never complete without at least one.

Here's what's inside:



With fairy-tale fervor, we’ve broken into cosmetics.  Our Jean Queen lipstick was tailor-made to complement the blue hues in your beloved denim, and Frog Prince magically adapts to your skin’s pH for a unique shade of rosebud pink. (We stock gloss and blush, too!)


Even if you have a signature statement scent, we think the above purse-sized roller perfumes are perfect post-journey pick-me-ups. We all deserve to feel a little girly once we’re wheels-down.

For your Mind

We’re into color therapy. Just look at our turquoise storefronts!  And colored pencils + adult coloring books = instant meditation. Take a quiet moment to process your journey by channeling color’s light and energy onto a page.


Where are you headed this summer? From ocean to ocean, from backyard pool to air-conditioned basement, H&H will get you there. Flying umbrella not included.
