Review l Joy Mangano Better Beauty Case

I believe I purchased the Joy Mangano Better Beauty Case through HSN, and I probably around $20-$30. It came with the case that I will be talking about today, a large case, a small case, and 2 loose clear pouches.

This one is sold out. The next closest deal is this one. You can also find similar deals on Amazon or Bed Bath and Beyond

Technology l Travel Apps

Technology definitely has helped me book and manage my trips. I still print out a paper backup copy. This is in case my phone battery/back up battery runs out of power or any other unforeseeable circumstance.

I am an Android user, and I believe there are iPhone versions of these apps.

Travel l Washington ( June 26 - 28, 2015)

When it rains, it pours. We were swimming in DC. There was record rainfall with flood warnings. But we didn't let it put a damper on our plans, no pun intended.

Originally, we were supposed to go the zoo, but we were not able to due to weather.
We planned to eat lunch at SUNdeVICH but also didn't make it there. I think it was too far away from where we were. I also wanted to try to get to the monuments after the museum, but it had been a long day. 

Plans change when you're traveling, and you remember that sometimes things happen that are out of your control. The best advice I can give for when situations don't according to plan is to be flexible and open to exploring. Keep a positive attitude and make the best out of it.

Review l Flight 001

Recently I went to DC, and I was able to test out some new Flight 001 travel accessories I had purchased. I was able to purchase them at a discount (50% off!) during a Lucky Break. Lucky Magazine has a different sale each day.

But the real test for me is would I pay full price for these? The short answer is yes.

I did purchase some other Flight 001 items but have not used them yet. There will be another review once I have tested them out.

Some quick things I wanted to point out are: 

  • Each item came in a zipped pouch. It makes it easy to store when its not in use. I also read that it provides extra compression while traveling. I have not tried that out yet to confirm.
  • All the packing cubes are well made in regards to the materials and zippers
  • The Spacepak items have a packing suggestions written right now them. There is also a video on the website showing you how to pack the bags and how to put them into a suitcase. 

Review l Sonia Kashuk Floral Print Beauty (Makeup) Organizer

I really wanted the Laura Mercier Home & Away Custom Artist Portfolio, but it is really expensive. It goes for around $100 when it is available. I believe it comes out during the Holiday (aka Christmas) season. I decided to purchase the Sonia Kashuk Floral Print Beauty Organizer as an alternative. It's a fraction of the price.

Travel l Merrimack/Manchester, NH *L's Graduation* (May 8 - 9, 2015)

I ended up choosing a hotel in Merrimack because I was a last minute booker. Basically there was no room left in Manchester. Fortunately it's only 15 minutes away from SNHU.

Travel l Providence, RI (April 25, 2015)

Connecticut is a pretty central location to live in. We have a lot of choices when it comes to day trips. When deciding on what zoo we wanted to go to, all the zoos near us were about the same distance. The reason why my sisters and I decided on the Roger Williams Zoo was because S didn't get to there on a class field trip.
