European Vacation

A and I are headed “across the pond” in May for a trip through London, Paris, and Rome. As always I’m overwhelmingly practical when packing for trips. So in anticipation for our long plane ride, I’ve been looking for all the necessities I might need to make the ride as comfortable as possible. If you’ve ever taken an overnight flight, you know that they usually give you a “sleep pack” with a sleep mask, ear plugs, socks, and always provide blankets and pillows. But airplane issued items aren't that cute or comfortable or clean so I decided to find some alternative to pack in my carry-on.

The first, and the item that inspired this post, are these adorable Holly Golightly Earplugs. I HAVE to have these!




Of course a sleep mask is most necessary. I own a few, but my favorites are these from Bath & Body Works:


or these from Traveling Chic



or of course the Holly Golightly complete ensemble:


A cute, and comfortable travel pillow and blanket. I always prefer to have my own blanket and pillow since airplane ones can be full of germs from previous passengers. Gross. This one is called a PamBee and was designed by a flight attendant. It's a little pricey, but I really like the Pucci inspired design. Hoping to find similar for less...



I like this polka dot pillow from Traveling Chic as well...



I also love everything at Flight 001

Evian Travel Companions


Reflexology Travel Socks


Cherry Blossom Motion Sickness Bracelets


No Cooties!


I also bring a large bottle of water, chap stick, lotion, a contact case, and my glasses since I get soooo dehydrated on the plane, facial wipes, tooth paste and tooth brush..If you can think of anything else I’m forgetting, let me know!

Oh my gosh the bath and body works one...I'm on my THIRD one. I call them "lambie." My husband steals mine, sometimes. I have it in white, and it's the softest, cutest thing.
