Travel Essentials

September 17, 2015

This Friday I’m traveling to NYC for a girls’ weekend and I could not be more excited. The weekend’s events will surely hold all of the events that basic bitches do: go to long dinners, drink mimosas at brunch, shop, gossip, and drink some more. NYC is one of my most favorite cities in the world so I am excited not only to visit the Big City in all of her glory, but I also haven’t seen these friends in far too long and it will be a lovely reunion.

In preparation of my quick trip, I decided to pull together a peek inside my travel bag. I hate lugging around a heavy bag and try to keep my carry-on tote to the bare essentials to save my shoulder. It’s also a lot more difficult to carry a cocktail around the airport with a bag full of shit. See below for what I consider are can’t-do-withouts on a plane. Cocktails not included.

This zippered tote is a great find and a great price. There are other similar ones out there, but this one is good quality and not too expensive. Plus that zipper is clutch. And for heaven’s sake, don’t forget your socks. Cold feet on an airplane is such a bad way to start a trip. #amiright ?


An aside about friends and visiting them: it is frightening how fast life moves these days. I swear it was April last week. Because I live in Savannah and don’t have my best friends and family at my fingertips like I used to, I have to put forth a lot more effort to make sure a) I know what is going in everyone’s lives and b) they don’t forget about me. DON’T FORGET ABOUT MEEEEEE. I booked this NYC trip on a bit of a whim and am so glad I did it. Being committed to those you love most (and who love you in return) pays dividends far more valuable than those accrued in your investment account. Just a thought on this Thursday…

    Who are you again? I am not sure I remember – it’s been too long. The girls have given up on seeing you and now just talk to a picture of you – you are now being referred to as “Aunt Annie-in-the-picture”. I am kidding – love you!
