It’s that time of the year, when you’re itching to take a trip. Perhaps you’ve been yearning for an island retreat or you want to bump elbows in NYC crowds or you just want to kick back poolside in Vegas. Whether you fly the friendly skies or road trip it to your destination, you (well at least I know I do) have some travel essentials and hotel routines. Chanel Iman shared hers travel in this video…
Which made me think of my essentials and little quirky things I do en route and upon arrival. Aside from my airport uniform; t-shirt, skinny jeans, cardigan and comfy shoes to slip in out of (socks are usually stowed in my purse), gotta love that TSA screening; you can see in the picture above a few of my must-have items. I have to have that particular lip balm by Fresh, a dark pair of sunnies, my iPhone, magazines and Cheezits (yes Cheezits, I LOVE them).
The magic happens when I get into my room. For some reason, I turn into Jeff Lewis from Bravo’s Flipping Out and start rearranging things! Like Chanel, lighting a candle in my room has become a must, we both like Diptyque (Lilas is my personal favorite), in addition to that, the bathroom gets an inspection and I sit in almost every spot to find the perfect comfy place. Oh, I also check the closet for the right amount of hangers for my clothes. Weird? Maybe, but I’m sure you have those little things you do too when you travel. What are your travel essentials and routines?
