Road Trip Essentials

Being a Sugar Baby can feel like you’re living parallel lives. Sometimes what you really need is time alone or with a friend on the open road. With the weather warming up, it’s the perfect time to go on a road trip, find balance, and get away from Sugaring. Or maybe you’ll line up POTs along your route, either way you’ll need these road trip essentials.

Phone Charger

The ZUS USB car charger is perfect for road trips. Not only can you charge 2 devices at once but it charges at 2 x the speed of regular chargers AND remembers where you parked your car via an app. I also recommend a portable charger that you can carry in your purse. There are too many Instagram worthy opportunities to have a dead device.

Audible and Podcasts

Depending on the length of your road trip, pick out a couple audio books to enjoy while you’re in the driver’s seat. Even if you’re riding shotgun, listening to books can be preferable to the same top 40 playlist for 300 miles. Services like Audible make purchasing big titles in audio form easy, but if you want to go a free route, check out some podcasts which can download to your phone.

Refreshing Mist

Traveling can suck the moisture out of your skin, especially if you have the air conditioning blasting. Make up setters and refreshing mists like this one from Evian are ideal when the desert has you feeling dry and dusty.

AAA Card

Remember to bring your AAA card or any other equivalent with you on the road. These services will benefit a road-trip driver as they offer 24-hour roadside assistance and towing services for stranded drivers. Better to be safe than sorry! You’ll end up spending a lot more than the $60 per year for even one car towing situation. 

Dry Shampoo

Chances are your hair will be feeling greasy after a long car ride, so freshen it up with some dry shampoo. Big brands like Ouai offer a great option at a higher price point, but my personal favorite is one of the most inexpensive ones out there. Not Your Mother’s will be your best friend when you’ve been using hotel conditioner for a few days.  

The MakeUp Eraser

Never go to sleep with your makeup on, the blemishes will follow you home. The MakeUp Eraser is a cloth that erases makeup with only warm water, including waterproof mascara. This cloth gets rid of tough makeup without leaving behind a residue—just a fresh, clean face. Tried and tested by me, this is a great way of minimizing the amount of liquids you put in your bag.
