Cutest Travel Pillow

I’m telling you, sometimes my iPhone just makes this whole picture taking process that much easier for me.

I’m back after 1o days in my home state – a little time in So Cal, and more time in Nor Cal with my folks.  I’ve got a handful of days that I’m back in the desert to do a little work before I’m off traveling again.  Mr. Wonderful will be missing me a lot, but I gotta retreat and explore, and a HUGE blog announcement coming up in the next few weeks.  This means amazing giveaways for you, and an awesome deal for me by a major electronics company.

So, as I need to travel a lot, I found this adorable bunny neck pillow on Etsy.  He’s coming with me everywhere this month.

Do you have any getaway plans?  I have Ireland coming up end of this month and I’m trying to figure out how to knock myself out during that long trip.  I get a little antsy on long flights and car rides so I’m really hoping I can manage before I want to run up and down the aisle of the plane.  If you have any tips, please tell me, I’m a bit worried.

My girlfriend Melayne who I’ll be traveling with said she heard sleeping with a neck brace on works just as well as a neck pillow if not better.  If she dares to do it, you bet I’ll be taking photos of her when she’s asleep.

Diana Elizabeth thinks it’s always possible to find a cuter version of anything practical, clearly.

 

Trying to decide what to write to make myself sound interesting.

    Last year I took a long flight to Italy with several layovers and I was slightly worried as well, knowing that I don’t do well during long car rides either. But feeling prepared helped me feel like I was in control (even though I totally wasn’t).
    I brought snacks, hand wipes, facial wipes, mints, a small blanket, socks, and two things I find really helpful on planes and in cars are eye drops and nose drops.
    It takes a little humility and discretion squirting something up one’s nose, but it provides such relief in a musty, dry airplane. I use a brand called Xclear. If you can fit it, bring a shirt to change into once you land – it helps to refresh.

    Your neck pillow is super cute and I completely agree with you about cuter versions of anything practical. I like to remind myself to never sacrifice form for function.

    Have fun in all of your travels!

      Hi Carissa, thank you so much for your comment! I hope to one day to go Italy!! I love your tips – especially the changing of the shirt and the nose drops, makes sense but such an unordinary thing to think about. I will put both on my list! I just spent a little time on your website and am blown away by your beautiful imagery, your images really move me. I hope I can take some pretty images while I travel, landscape isn’t a typical thing I photograph so we’ll see! xoxo!

    Since I get motion sickness easily, my doctor prescribed me a patch to put on behind my ear. This helped me get through my 13-14 hour flight to S. Korea when I went over to teach there for two summers. Without it, I probably would be in my bed for a week still recovering from the flight.

    Make sure you are hydrated and drink lots of water. This way your skin doesn’t feel so dry when you get off the plane. There’s something about airplane air that is not friendly to the human skin. I would also bring a roll-on perfume bottle — I always feel like I smell like an airplane and am always wishing I had my roll-on with me to help me make it to my hotel. Ha!

      Thanks for the tips M! I think I might get the evian spray water thing for my face, that air up there sure is dry. I am hoping my tablet with my Twilights will help haha. :)

    Make sure you have an aisle seat so you can get up whenever you want, drink a lot of water, and if you have trouble sleeping try melatonin. It’s natural (or something). :)
