Ready to go.

Well, my bags are mainly packed and I have my boarding pass. That only means that a trip is in the very near future!

I'm so excited to be heading back to NY.. so I thought I'd let you in on what I pack in my travel bag.

Amazon kindle. I was so torn on purchasing this but ultimately being able to bring hundreds of books with me in such a small device pushed me over the edge. I loaded it up with some fun free books and classics last night before popping it in my bag. And I have a nifty purple case for it that makes it easy to be seen in my bag as well.

Lip balm. My favorite is burts bees beeswax lip balm. I always make sure to have at least one (..or two) floating in my bag. The peppermint makes it smell nice and I always love the tingly sensation I get after applying it. Kinda doubles as a bit of a wake up call for me! Available at Burt' or your neighborhood drugstore.

Advil PM. Because I know I'm gonna get a wonky neckache on the plane and it'll help me sleep.

A black scarf. My aunt got me the most awesome plain black scarf for Christmas from Nordies a few years ago. It's gotten softer with wash and I adore it! Works with anything I'm wearing and is perfect to wrap around my neck on a chilly airplane. Similar,

My uggs. I know, I know. Most definitely not the prettiest pair of shoes but boy are they comfy, especially with unpredictable weather (and chilly temps that I'm not used to). I particularly love my tall chestnut ones because of the tread on the bottom. It wears more like a shoe and is actually pretty comfy. These have gotten so much wear from me that I need to replace the insoles on them but these have accompanied me to NY,  London, and come out whenever we have a cold spell. Ugg Ultimate tall braided boots in Chestnut, available at

Well that's about it for now... here's to hoping that the clock goes a bit faster this afternoon! May sneak out on my lunch break for a pre-trip manicure but other than that... I'm ready!
