FIVE Essential Travel Accessories for a perfect flightIt's around summer time where school and colleges are ending and everyone goes on vacation. Whenever I travel it can be really hectic getting everything together . My biggest worry is to forget something important ( like my passport!)
So much to organise! I've been looking particularly for a passport cover that would fit both passports and also a small card/cash wallet that looked cute and chic and can fit in my pocket . I also do not like to spend too much money on these things, I always look for bargains, especially at the outlets.
After searching through Five Designer stores, I struggled to find anything that looked like it was worth it's price tag. That was until I head into KATE SPADE! I found exactly what I was looking for! I've had this mini wallet and the passport holder for just over 3 years now and it's still going strong!
Before I travel, I make a quick checklist of items that I know i'll need before heading to the airport.
1. PASSPORT HOLDER & LUGGAGE TAGS
An obvious one , but vital to put on the list . Of all the things I may be doing such as loading up my tablet with a full season of 2 broke girls, or charging every tech device I own incase the plane has no charging port. I sometimes forget to pack my passport! luckily I always remember last minute because of my trusty checklist! PLUS you want to bring your passport in style , show off your personalist, instead of the boring dull brown or blue most passports are. Aside from Kate spade my favourite place to shop for passport holders are Typoshop and SkinnyDip!
My luggage is quite unique, but not as unique as i thought! I thought I was the only one with a pink and white rolling Guess suitcase, but turns out someone else had the exact suitcase when I travelled to Miami and I almost walked away with someone else's things! If it wasn't for my luggage tag I would have had a very different holiday! Lately i've been loving sprucing up my suitcase with stickers and cute tags!
2. TRAVEL WALLET
Foreign money can be very annoying , some places rely heavily on paper money (ahem america) and while over here in Brum we mostly use coins, or jus our cards. So I try to make sure I always have a separate coin holder and wallet for my foreign money. although I have come back from holidays and handed over Quarters as 10p ... (by accident of course and nope i'd didn't get caught! After realising I slowly backed away and then ran haha )
3.TRAVEL SIM CARD
With the millions of things I do on a regular basis , my phone needs to be on, readily and available for any call. I always pick up a travel sim card or if i know i'm going to be traveling frequently throughout the year ill get a rolling foreign contract ( I don't recommend this unless you are going to be racking up some serious airline miles!)
I cant survive any plane ride without quality tv shows, not the old fluff they put on the planes. I'm an Avid tv watcher and If I don't have the NEXT episode of the tv show i've been watching i'm going to be pretty annoyed on the plan . Which is why i'll skip tv the week before I travel and load all the latest episodes on my ipad. I wrote about my TOP TRAVEL TECH ESSENTIALS FOR A LONG PLANE RIDE over on my Business blog < definitely a MUST READ
5. NECK PILLOW
If it's a long plane ride, now i'm talking at least 5-8 hours, then i'll probably run out of shows , or just get tired. sos a neck pillow is a must! I've seen people sleeping on the plan with the neck cranked on their shoulder and all that goes through my head , is the pain they are going to feel when they wake up! OWCH! . Primark sells a really comfy neck pillow with a strap you can attach to your luggage. I've had mine for about a year now and it cost me £6 ! MUCH cheaper than anywhere else i've ever been to! Primark never fails!
