The girls behind the insanely popular Instagram account @abikiniaday, Natasha Oakley and Devin Brugman, lead busy lives. "We're constantly on planes, trains, cars, shooting, meetings and at appearances," says Natasha. "We've kind of become pros at travelling," explains Tash, who says the two have packing narrowed down to a science. On a recent day trip to Toronto, they filled us in on the essentials they always take with them, as they jet all over the world and back home again.

The bathing suit

"I would pack Monday Swimwear. I love the Clovelly top, which is like an underwire adjustable bra. It's so flattering. That's my main go-to for the range, and the Bahamas one-piece." — Tash

Monday Swimwear one-piece, $212,

The sneakers

"We love APL sneakers. Their colour range is really cool, and they're really comfortable.  I also like how they tuck the laces in. They have a really consistent collection." — Devin

APL Ascend Training Shoes, $207,

The hair products

"We love a good beach spray. Bumble and Bumble is really good," says Tash. "We've been using Pantene shampoo since we were like twelve," adds Devin. "We use our beach sprays, and that Oribe dry shampoo."

Bumble and bumble Surf Spray, $31,

Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo, $8,

Oribe Gold Dust Dry Shampoo, $53,

The skincare essentials

"On the plane specifically, we can't travel without our Grape Water Spray by Caudalie and also the Beauty Elixir. They're our saving grace," says Devin. "Our plane ritual has changed so much even in the last year. Now, when we get off, we don't feel dehydrated," says Tash.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir, $58,

Caudalie Grape Water Spray, $24,

The workout wear

"We like to keep it pretty simple," explains Devin. "We wear a lot of black, white, nude and grey, so our typical workout outfits are a long pant and a great quarter-length top," she says. "The thing about Monday Active is that we've designed it where everything is adjustable," says Tash of their own line of workout gear. "We know what it's like to be a girl trying to find something stylish and cute but really supportive and breathable."

Monday Active leggings, $107,

The makeup staples

"We use all sorts of different products," says Devin. "It's a mixture of everything like Charlotte Tilbury and NARS. We love YSL, Bobbi Brown and MAC lipsticks."

NARS Blush in Orgasm, $38,

Bobbi Brown SPF Lip Balm, $25,
