I’m always on the hunt for fun/interesting/useful/cute/tiny travel products. So I decided to write about some of the ones that I’ve bought recently. Because I’m lazy, I just looked at my Amazon history, which is why all of these are from Amazon. But they’re all things I bought with my […]

This is a continuation of my last entry about packing — it’s all about my carry-on purse/bag. I find it easier to bring two separate bags, one as my actual carry-on suitcase, and one as my “personal item” as the airlines like to call it. Above are three carry-on purses […]

Surely by now you all know how I hate checking luggage. Which means I have to bring all necessary toiletries with me in my carry-on bag. I’ve lamented the lack of cute ziptop bag options before, so when I found these, I was pretty pleased. Regular old Ziploc bags are […]
