I am just about to fly back home to Vancouver from Arizona and I thought it was a good time to do a quick post on my flying essentials. I hope everyone has a great Monday! Luckily it’s Good Friday this week so we get a short work week [which is always a plus when coming back from vacay!]
1. Wear Comfy Pants & Warm Sweaters
Especially if you are on a long flight, don’t wear jeans. I know for me, I fly on a lot of short 3 hour flights and I still opt for a pair of cuffed sweats and a boyfriend tee.
2. Wear Your Bulkiest Clothes
They will keep you warm and leave more room in your suitcase. It’s also handy if you only want to bring a carry-on –there will be a lot more space for your essentials.
3. Neck Pillow
Yes, I’m that person. I get really stiff when I sleep on planes and having a neck pillow helps keep my neck aligned.
4. Bring Toiletries
I always have a face mask with me while travelling. The air on the plane makes my skin so dry and a mask helps with breakouts and moisturizing. I also bring a toothbrush, hair brush, and hand lotion.
5. Headphones + Chargers
These ones are self explanatory. I love my Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. They are noise cancelling, and even if I’m not listening to anything they help me fall asleep.
I always freeze when I’m on the plane! On the other hand, when I go from gate to gate at the airport I work up a sweat. Layers are always a good idea when travelling so you can add and subtract them when needed.
