Things You're Probably Forgetting To Bring On A Plane

Hello Friends!!

Lately, I have the good fortune of being able to travel a lot to many different places. I have really enjoyed traveling, but in all of that there will be times I am stuck in an airport for what feels like forever or in a flight that is much too long. Throughout those different waiting games I've noticed a couple things that I find myself vying for but ultimately forgetting many times.

one// A portable battery pack

Obviously we all try our best to remember to back a phone charger, but what if you can't find an outlet? Now I know what you're all thinking "Daphne, they now have charging stations" yes, but how many times are those all completely taken? And then you're the weirdo that sits on the floor that everyone looks at (yes, that is me at all airports). Just make sure that you have your battery pack charged the night before.

two// Fuzzy Socks

This is one that try my best to always pack! Airports are really cold and so are planes. Fuzzy socks are the best way to get comfy and warm. Having a sweater and socks will be amazing for naps if needed. Trust me on this! Never forget your fuzzy socks.

 three// Noise-Canceling Headphones

Now this might sound crazy, but I am actually one of those people that forget to bring headphones. Typically this is because I like to read on planes. But lately with some of the late night airport stays or plane trips, It would be nice to have noise-canceling headphones or earplugs because I would like to get some sleep. They really are perfect to fully ignore the world around you.

four// Snacks!!!

Airport food is ridiculously expensive!! A Burger King meal for one cost me 10 BUCKS!!! How come a granola bar in the airport is the same amount of money has a meal in McDonald's outside the airport. Why must you punish me?? Now I won't lie I've had some pretty delicious food, like amazing hot chocolate in Newark

So you need a couple of combos that never fail:
Something Salty (like chips or pretzels)
Something savory (like a sandwich)
Something healthy-ish (like a granola bar or nuts)
Something sweet (like a bar of chocolate)

Take everything out of their original packages and put them in a separate ziploc baggie (you don't need to unwrap granola bars). They really don't take up that much room! Don't fall victim to the airport snack trap.

What do you travel with?

Easy July 4th Outfit Ides

Hello Friends!

Fourth of July is right around the corner! I have to say it is one of my favorite holidays. It comes right after Christmas and Thanksgiving. It really feels like summer during the Fourth plus its only 6 days away from my birthday, so its all win. With the Fourth of July comes the wonderful Red, White, and Blue outfits. I LOVE everything about the outfits and activities of the 4th. Here are some of my favorites.

What are you doing for the 4th?

Visiting the Queen City (Charlotte)

Hello Friends!

This past week I got to spend some time in Charlotte. It was a lot of fun. The purpose of the trip was actually a conference. Luckily, I got there a day early so I had plenty of time to explore. With some suggestions from my Uber driver, friends, and Google; I decided to make my way Uptown! It was so much fun!

The airport is cool. I seem to always have interesting flying times. No matter where I go or when, something weird happens to me. TSA in Charlotte was strange, the flight to Charlotte had crazy people yelling, and the flight home was delayed 2 hours! It was an adventure for sure.

In Uptown I stopped by a super cool coffee place called Coco's Design. It was very well and interestingly decorated. I had a fun time exploring it. My uber driver suggested I head over to Plaza Midwood for some more of the artist community! I went to Midwood Smokehouse and it was AMAZING! I'd highly recommend it. 

While walking around I did get to explore Plaza Midwood. I stopped in this super cute icecreamery. Called Two Scoops. It doesn't look like much on the inside, but it is amazing. The ice cream is homemade and the people are so kind. 

Where are you all traveling this summer?
