Everything! The list is too long... My Loewe blanket, Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum, a face mask, Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray, bags of nuts, at least 2 books in case one gets finished, Time magazine and yes, plenty of teabags! I also keep a reusable cup because the waste of cups on planes freaks me out.
