(energetic music) – Hey guys, I'm Shay Mitchell.
I'm an actress, entrepreneur, beauty junky, and frequent flyer.
I've been juggling work andtravel for quite some time and along the way I'vepicked up some secrets.
In this series, I'll beopening up my little black book to share some of the people and practices that help make my lifea little bit easier.
I'm so excited to takeyou behind the scenes and bring you guys into my world.
Subscribe to the Bazaar Channel so you don't miss an episode.
(energetic music) My love of travel startedfrom when I was a little girl.
My parents were avid travelers and from them, I trulycaught the travel bug.
It's been something thatI've also really got to enjoy from the job that I have.
You know, you're flyingto different places, sometimes for 12 hoursor sometimes for a week to months if you're shooting a movie.
With that, you really have to be ready to pack up your stuff and go.
So, my tips and tricksfor being able to pack a good suitcase or my airplane bag, I feel like I've now becomeprofessional.
(laughing) I usually give my friendstips on how to travel and just make it a nicer experience, because you're leaving homeand you want to be sure that no matter where youare, you feel comfortable, and that for me is super important.
And that is why I startedmy travel accessory and luggage line called Beis.
And I wanted to do somethingthat could provide people with items that were fun and functional and chic, but affordable.
I wanted to be so hands on.
I had to be so hands on.
Getting to go to China andsee all the different fabrics and pick the canvas that we used was a really, really funpart of the whole thing.
I'm traveling about 75percent of the year, yup.
Now when I come home, that'slike a vacation from me.
I'm like, oh, I get to go home for a week.
That's like time off.
I started Shaycations when Istarted my YouTube channel.
I think that was reallyone of the reasons why I wanted to start a channel was so that I could share my travelexperiences with everybody, and I just have such a love for getting to experience newcultures, people, food.
You name it and now it's truly one of my favorite things to do.
I am actually reallyexcited to be going to Paris for my very first Paris Fashion Week, and I leave in a coupledays so I will be packing all of my essentials thatI usually bring with me for anytime I go on the road.
(energetic music) Okay, so this is the Beis Weekender bag, and I created this bag because I thought it was the perfect size for either a day trip or a weekender trip, and it's also great for the plane because it goes right over my carry on.
So when I was in China, Iwas searching all of these different store frontsfor the perfect canvas, and when I found this one, they actually thoughtI was a little crazy.
'Cause normally what they would do was to take this canvasand dye it a certain color, but I wanted it in it's raw form.
And so they thought Iwas very interesting.
And now, I'm going toshow you what is inside.
There's a lot, so get ready.
First is first, easy pocketto get to, has my phone.
My air pods and you willfind out really soon that everything I have is labeled.
First and foremost, my passport holder because without this, you won'tbe able to travel anywhere.
My staying alive bag, this has vitamins, Throat Coat, ginger, turmeric, herbal tea.
Socks, because when you're on a plane, there's nothing worse than cold feet.
Tissues, a highlighter, because most of the time when I'm on a plane, I bringreading material with me, and a lot of that is scripts.
Scrunchie, obviously, and a regular plug in, but not only do I havethis guy for my cellphone, this charger, and this charger.
Yeah, these are also labeledShay one, two, and three, just so I can keep track.
Next up, sunglasses, (foreign language), especially when landingand you haven't slept.
Kind of like how I am today.
I have my travel adapterwhich is very important when you travel as much as I do.
Okay, while we are on theplane, some reading material.
This is also one of my favorite books.
I do have a handy dandy iPad, because on here I haveone of my favorite apps.
It's called Texture, and itactually has all the magazines.
I don't work for them, but I probably should.
My computer, Shaycation, sleep mask.
I like having candy andsnacks with me at all times.
My hot sauce, this I cannot live without.
I take this with me every place I go.
Wallet, obviously, Altoids.
And then we have my toiletry bag.
So this is also Beis and it's awesome because it can fit a lot of stuff in here.
Now when I'm on the plane, I'm that person who will be shocking everybodyelse when they wake up and I have a full on mask.
Yes, a shower cap.
When I land at the hotel, the first thing I do is wet wipe all of the remotecontrols and the light fixtures, but I actually wrap my remotecontroller in the shower cap so I don't feel gross when I'm using it and eating french fries and allthat stuff at the same time.
In this bottom portionI have my running shoes because whenever I travel, Ilove to get a good workout in.
I bring a jump rope becauseit's super easy to do wherever you are, and thenI have a band with me.
I actually am that personthat does it on the plane, sometimes two, depending on how long.
I have my makeup bag, it's got my brushes, my lip glosses, and all the things.
So that is what's in my bag when I travel.
And there's a little kid in here.
There's two squirrels.
Okay, so we're justheading in to my office on the Warner Brother lot today to talk all things luggageand travel with Beis, and to see the new samples of the line.
So I couldn't be more excited because this is the firsttime I'm seeing those samples.
Okay, so this is what I'm thinking.
We're already changing these handles Still good.
Like this still feels super comfortable.
I think this would look really pretty if we did the baby blue.
For these guys, thisand the passport holder, I also thought it would be really cool to do the pass port holderin the PBC and this as well.
– So what we're thinking of is actually just increasing this, the height of this, but putting a plasticchip board in the bottom.
So that makes it flat.
– Honestly, that's my biggest pet peeve when you're packing shoes and like.
It's all wonky becauseof the stupid holder.
So I thinkYeah.
that would be amazing.
(zipping noise) Can we just talk about mylaundry bag for real though, it says Dirt Bag, how cute.
I thought just even doinglike three little hangers could be kind of cool, Like the.
as for marketing, you know what I mean? – [Assistant] We're goingto have to make it fit.
– How cute is that though.
Did you see we have like littlemirrors in the makeup bags.
This is what's goingto come with all them.
Nothing crazy, I think you wantit to be super light weight, cause the last thing you wantis this to be what causes your bag to be heavy.
– And then we'll add the icon here to add that attach abag, with the Beis logo.
– And I feel like this strap could almost even say something funny.
Okay, so literally this islike my most fun project that I get to work on becauseit's all things travel, and I have so much fun in these meetings, even though sometimesthey want to kill me, because I'm all like what doyou mean it can't get done? It has to get done.
We're doing it.
But yeah, I'm really excitedto see all this stuff come to life and everysingle time we meet, it gets better, so yay! Colors, colors.
(laughing) Who wants luggage tabs? (energetic music).
