Work/Girls Night Outfit

So apparently I am one of those people that need a vacation after a vacation. Actually I was sick over my entire Christmas break and cracked my rib so technically it didn’t really feel like a vacation. So I am currently resting my rib all week in my home away from home. But before I arrived here I decided to do a outfit post before leaving. This outfit is perfect for when I go to work or out for dinner with some girl friends. And I am still loving the colour berry that was so popular in the fall. Happy Tuesday everyone!!

8 Must Haves in your Carry-on

Bon Voyage!! I am off to Toronto tomorrow for a little vacation to visit some family and friends. I am super excited for my trip but I dread packing. I am one of those people that want to bring EVERYTHING.. It’s suppose to rain twice while I am there and for that reason I wanted to bring my Hunter wellies. I took me a day to convince myself I won’t really need them. But my suitcase is now full! and I am just packing up my bag for the plane. Here are some tips and things I plan on bringing with me so I can enjoy my flight!

1) Use a big purse/bag!! I am using my Michael Kors Jet Set Macbook Travel Tote which is perfect because it has a compartment for my Macbook Pro and it still leaves tons of space for other things that I need to bring with me.

2) Bring a Laptop or iPad to play with. I get really bored on planes, especially when I am alone. I will be bringing my laptop to keep me entertained. But I also don’t trust having my laptop in my suitcase so even if I don’t plan on using it I want it with me. Along with my laptop I make sure I have my charger and iPhone charger.

3) Bring a book or Magazines. I am bringing both, again it’s mainly for entertainment purposes.

4) Chapstick!! I am seriously a lipgloss/chapstick hoarder.. I have put in 5 different kinds in my bag.

5) I like to bring my own blanket. The ones they give you on the plane just plain suck. I tend to get cold easily, so I prefer to bring my own fuzzy blanket. I also am packing a scarf with me to put on once I land in Toronto.

6) Proper Identification and cash! This is important anytime your are going on a flight, mainly because they won’t let you on if you don’t have the right ID and it is always safe to have some kind of cash with you, just incase.

7) HEADPHONES. This is crucial. If you want to watch a movie or listen to music you are going to need these, unless you enjoy listening to the person beside you snore.

8) Gum and snacks! Gum for taking off and snacks because you never know when you’ll get hungry!

Bedside Tables

One of the easiest places to change up some decor is a side table or coffee table. My bedside table is an example of one of those things that is always changing. The table it self is an old side table I have since painted that matches my Tiffany’s Inspired Dresser.

I don’t like having too much clutter on my table because my laptop is usually on it. I am one of those people who spends an hour on the computer before going to bed (bad habit), so it’s regular home is on my side table. I also currently have 3 small notebooks that haven’t been used yet sitting there. The blue ones are from Target and the pink one is from Indigo. I always keep some kind of lipgloss (I like to put some on before bed) and moisturizer for quick access if I’m lounging in bed and don’t feel like getting up. I usually also keep my Michael Kors watch on my bedside, mainly because I don’t want to lose it. There is also a little pink bow ring that has been sitting there for the past month.

As I said before this is something that is always changing for me and there really is no wrong way to do it. I am thinking I need to move the notebooks and add some white mini pumpkins soon! Good thing I will be checking out the pumpkin patch this weekend!
