Travel Carry On Essentials

Happy Friday!

So I think only Kate knows this life update but I'm starting a new job on Monday! I'm super excited about it because it's a career advancement with better benefits and overall work environment. I'm definitely going to miss my coworkers but, when an opportunity like this falls in your lap, it was a sign to move on and upwards.

With that being said, I've done a little weekend travel before things get busy. Most recently was my trip to Houston which I posted about on Wednesday.  



Hello Houston!

It was a last minute decision to fly to Houston for the weekend to visit a lifelong friend who is now 7 months pregnant. This is my first time visiting anywhere in Texas so I'm excited to explore Houston and get some quality time with my girl friend.



I'll catch you all next week. Have a great weekend everyone!

Interesting Finds: Travel Edition


Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have some fun plans lined up for the weekend or for 4th of July holiday next week. I'm sharing another edition of Interesting Finds, this time of the travel variety since vacationing is on my mind.

Travel Carry-On Essentials


Admittedly I'm one who always over packs for trips so we always have checked luggage even if it's one suitcase shared between K and I. Clothing and shoes go into the checked suitcase and I pack all my valuables and smaller travel essentials in hand luggage including a change of clothes in case our checked bag somehow doesn't arrive on the same flight.

Travel-Size Essentials

                                
We travel quite often so I have a toiletry bag that's always packed with travel size products for when we decide to take off for a weekend trip or even a longer vacation. While I'm known to over pack in the clothing and shoes department, I have my toiletry selection under control. Other than the basic necessities like toothpaste, shampoo & conditioner, deodorant and a razor, these are some of the other essentials I take with me on vacation (in travel-size).



 A few other travel-size things that I also pack are dry shampoo, body spray/perfume, hand sanitizer, a good quality chapstick, and aloe vera (for tropical destinations).

When it comes to getting adequate sleep on vacation, I usually also bring along some melatonin for those restless nights. Until recently when I tried ZzzQuil Nighttime Sleep-Aid (sample from Influenster). I went out and bought a full pack because it helps you fall asleep within 20 minutes and doesn't leave you feeling groggy the next morning.



I've talked about being a non-morning-person before, probably because I'm the exact opposite and prefer to stay up late but that isn't practical when you have a 8-5 pm gig and need to be up at the crack of dawn. So I really like how ZzzQuil helps you sleep soundly for about 7-8 hours. The best part is the ingredients are non-habit forming because it's solely made for sleep and not for pain or sickness. While I wouldn't take this every night, I definitely need it from time to time when the night owl in me decides to come out to play.


I received a sample packet of ZzzQuil Sleep-Aid complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.  The review above is my true and honest opinion. #ZzzQuil, #SleepLovers, #ad, #gotitfree @Influenster
