Hey loves and happy Saturday! I know that normally posting on a Saturday is not something I normally do. However, I wanted to do a quick update and let those of you know that I will be out of town. Yes, it has been long overdo for a vacation and I am excited to say that I am going to the beautiful country of Bermuda.
I've always been a city girl at heart but sometimes it's so nice to pack your bags and escape the bustle for a bit. I have always been a fan of sandy beaches, tropical drinks, and warm climates so Bermuda is definitely going to be a dream.
I had to show off this beautiful Lily Bloom suitcase that oozes the tropical theme! I was so excited to get this lovely 20 inch suitcase for under 100.00! I recommend going to TJ Maxx they had great suitcases there for a reasonable price. I thought that 20 inches wouldn't be enough, especially because I pack a bunch of things. However, I was surprised that most of my items fit inside the suitcase (granted I had to sit on it a couple times to close it).
I realized that this maybe my last post for a bit because we may or may not have internet there. I want this to be something I enjoy, therefore, I maybe shutting off reality for a bit and truly enjoying the beautiful culture, design, and beach around me.
However, before I leave for the tedious track to Bermuda I wanted to share with you my top 3 items that I MUST have while traveling. It can be annoying sleeping on a plane, or taking that long trek to get to where you need to go. Fret not I am listing three items that will make your journey more pleasant.
I am a huge reader but sometimes I feel like I don't have the time to simply sit back and enjoy reading. However, whenever I go on vacation, I make sure to bring all the books and magazines that I have been dying to read with me. It's the perfect time to put your feet up, get a nice cup of warm tea, and read until your eyes hurt from looking at the pages. I have to admit I am a sucker for celebrity magazines, especially ones dishing about Meghan Markle and the royal family. I am completely transfixed within the story so you will definitely see me nose deep in a book or magazine in the airport and plane. I love reading books as well and I recommend everyone reading this amazing book, by Nicola Yoon, called Everything Everything. It's a light-hearted read with a roar of a lion, completely hitting you in all the emotional ways. I adored this book, it's quite close to my heart, so I maybe reading it again this trip.
The Neck Pillow & Blanket
I don't know about you guys but I have to have my neck pillow and blanket on a plane. I cannot sleep, what so ever, if I don't have something supporting my neck. Also, we have to admit that those planes can get extremely cold so you have to have your blanket on backup in case your legs and arms are freezing. I know some people will think I am crazy but I love the way the plane moves it's almost rocking me to sleep. Therefore, having my blanket and pillow is the perfect combination especially if you're taking a night flight and need to get that extra shed-eye.
One of the most important things is to have your music playlists ready for the flight. I cannot go a day without listening to some type of music. Therefore, I have already downloaded (which is important especially if you don't have wifi and need to play on airplane mode) my entire airplane playlist so I am ready to go and listen to music. Normally the steps I take is getting on the plane, reading my book, getting my cover and pillow, then playing some music until I fall asleep. It's literally the perfect combination. Recently, I have been obsessed with the new Drake album so that will for sure be on my top playlist for the trip to Bermuda. What new songs are you currently listening too? I'd love to add them to my playlist!
Now, this will be my last post until I return on the 8th of August. I know it seems like such a long time but I promise once I do I will have so many stories and pictures to share with you all. Almost to the point where you may or may not want to kill me. It's going to be weird not updating this blog but I think we all need a bit of a break for awhile.
Comment below or IG message me your favorite traveling tips! Also book recommendations and song ones as well are always nice! Until I see you all in August!
Thanks again for reading you mean the world to me!
