lazy saturday afternoon of scary movies, cheese platters, and wine (or beer for @aubricus).
mum just sent me this, it’s the driveway to their cabin in maine. no filter necessary.
Super excited for the @cinespia Haunted Hotel Bash, which includes a screening of Halloween at the Ace Hotel in Downtown LA. Also, loving the Phantom of the Opera homage here.
An attempt at a family #selfie… even though I’m cut out, at least it captures three of my most favourite people. #family #love
self made pumpkin spice iced coffee with an autumn themed paper straw is a great way to enjoy the first weekend of october! 🍃🎃🍁
woke up before the sun today, but it’s always worth it when you receive pretty pink sunrises.
Do you travel a lot? Are there specific items that you absolutely need when traveling? There are for me, and I’ve learned through many vacations and trips (short or long) that there is a definitive list of “Must Have Items” that I always carry with me. Whether it be an item of clothing, or a favorite toiletry item, there are certain things you can’t live without, especially when traveling. Many of the items on my list, make traveling so much easier (for me). There have been occasions where I’ve neglected to bring an item off this list, and it causes me to feel unprepared or uncomfortable.
I’ve curated this list from experiences of lots of plane travel, dozens of road trips, short trips, long trips… etc. All of these items are things I can’t live without whenever I go somewhere - and most times, they are comforts that I always have with or on me on a daily basis. Those items of comfort for day to day activities.
My go to clothing items for whenever and wherever I travel is a pair of basic leggings (or stretchy skinny jeans), a super comfy and chic sweater, and a simple cotton dress that can be dressed up or down. All of these items must be able to stand some wear and tear, and not be delicate towards wrinkles or stains (because life happens). For accessories, I’m heavily dependent on comfy shoes (especially if you’ll be walking a lot). I love TOMS because they’re ridiculously comfy, yet pretty to look at. I always pack a scarf, and will choose a lighter or heavier material based on the weather for wherever I’m going. I urge everyone to have a bag that can go over your shoulder. That gives you use of both hands, and it’s better protected (more so if it has a zipper or flap that buckles). I’ve been pick-pocketed once, and it wasn’t really an experience I’d like to repeat. Also! Always have a watch! This is important because your phone could die/break/become lost, and it’s always helpful to have quick access to the time without the annoyance of searching through your bag or pockets.
For miscellaneous accessories and toiletries, the items that I always carry with me are: face wipes (a quick freshen up is always nice after flying, exploring, driving, etc.), loose foundation powder for quick touch-ups or anxiety induced breakouts, lip salve, gum, a water bottle, and a journal to jot down travel notes, confirmation numbers, addresses, contact information, and itineraries.
Other items that are also nice to have (but not always necessary): reading material, earplugs, and some small snacks.
