I always bring a small make-up bag with basic essentials in it. For this trip I decided to bring some tinted lip balm, blush, eye shadow, mascara, liquid eye liner, and powder along with a travel size brush kit. Although I usually wear my glasses on the plane, I added contact solution for when I wake up and have dry eyes. To be on the safe side I included Tampax, cause you never know…
Keeping electronics to a minimum has always been difficult for me, but since I got my iPad it’s really easy to resist bringing my laptop since it’s so much lighter. It’s safe to assume that I packed my iPhone as in today’s society, it is essential to survive…JK. Don’t forget a pair of headphones or two and a few chargers.
My Malden Filofax is my own personal bible. It has all my lists, calendars, blog post organizers, dairy, etc. I couldn’t go anywhere without it! I included one pen, my current favorite Stabilo fine liner, but I will probably end up packing a few more.
I’m usually a gum person, but I though why not try Altoids. So, I packed the spearmint flavor…my favorite ;)
A co-worker of mine suggested I read Outliers by Malcom Gladwell. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishigurohas been sitting on my bookshelf for quite some time. Long flights are a great opportunity to get in some much needed reading.
Ever since I bought the Deena and Ozzy scarf I haven’t stopped wearing it. It’s pretty big which is perfect if the plane is really cold and you don’t want to use the standard issued blankets(if airlines even do that anymore).
I’ve recently started doing bringing my own reusable water bottle on trips because it really does save some dough. AND…it’s good for the environment!
I bringing my DSLR and an old compact canon on my trip along with a 32gb memory card so I don’t have to empty the card everyday.
~Have a SAFE and FUN Spring Break!
