Are you traveling for the long weekend? Yesterday I shared some summer outfits that I want in my closet and how Memorial Day Weekend is the "official start to summer". Memorial Day Weekend is also a huge travel weekend so I wanted to share some great travel items.
I have a couple 4-wheeled suitcases and love them. One of the things that I like about having the 4 wheels is that I can slide it next to me. Being on the shorter side of the spectrum this is the easiest way for me to move quickly through the airport. I am a terrible packer and always bring about twice as many outfits that I need (mostly because I want options!).
Whenever I fly somewhere more than ~ 3-4 hours I like to do red-eye flights because I don't want to waste a day traveling; however, I can never get comfortable and sleep. Brad can always fall asleep by using me as his pillow but I only get bits and pieces of sleep. I just bought one of these pillows and am looking forward to trying out on our trip to New York.
I like taking a water bottle with me; but I want something that isn't bulky or heavy. This water bottle would work well because it is collapsible and wouldn't take too much space when empty.
It wouldn't be a vacation without a new mani-pedi. I love that we have Julep Nail Parlors in the area and love going there prior to trips for a fresh Fab 14 Manicure and some pampering. If you are in the Seattle area make sure to check them out.
My goal for our next trip is to take more photos, I remember to take photos every once in a while but don't do well at the candid "walking down the street" type photos. This past summer, Brad and I purchased a Nikon D5100, while in Florida last November we had a bit of an accident with it (aka it fell off my neck) so we ended up buying a replacement and after fixing the first one we now have two of them. I love this camera, eventually I want to get a fisheye lens, but I need to figure out more functions before I justify the purchase.
What are your "must haves" when you travel?
