I've been doing tons of travel lately. In case you haven't heard, Nicole wrote this book called Mom Boss and it's kind of a big deal. We're even on a tour! That means taking mini trips all over the country and having to be prepared for all sorts of events, meetings, talks, and networking. How do you pack for a 3 day trip when you have to manage all those different things?? Since I've been doing it so much, I've become a little bit of an expert. Here are some tips to help you out of if you're planning a long weekend.
You don't need EVERYTHING:
I'm so guilty of always wanting to bring 4 pairs of shoes everywhere I go. But for a 3 day business trip, you really only need two: flats and a great pair of heels. These flats are perfect for the airplane, car, or getting around whatever town you're in. They come with multiple straps so you can dress them up if need be. Then when you're ready to change into your heels, you can flip them inside out so they don't dirty up your bag. It also makes them the perfect travel companion.
I don't wear a lot of high heels in my day-to-day life, but I think they're essential for looking professional and putting together a clean look. These high heels from Ilene Berg aren't just your run of the mill shoe...Their patented technology makes them so comfortable you might not even need the flats! They are cut to accommodate the natural fit of women’s feet preventing many potential foot issues associated with years of wearing designer shoes that favor style over comfort. Beauty no longer has to mean pain! I sometimes add a fringy anklet to give them a boho feel. So fun and I can wear them for hours.
A little goes a long way:
Did you know that people can be attracted to you or un-attracted to you even before they meet you? And it has nothing to do with your physical appearance? The way a person smells can sometimes tell you more about them than the way they talk. Yeah, it's science! The new Cocktail Collection by Commodity is sold exclusively at Sephora and you can customize the way you smell with a few basic "flavors". The "Book" spray is perfect for the tour! I can layer it with a little bit of "Mimosa" and I'm left with a light, feminine scent. Some have said it reminds them of a tea shop in London, their grandmother's study, and a sunny afternoon outside. (Please note, all of these were positive!). Whatever you're trying to emulate, this set helps you personalize it. Wear them alone or layer them like I did to create your own unique scent. They're also unisex so it makes a great stocking stuffer!
Don't forget your tech:
Forgetting a charger is THE WORST! I always bring this handy cord roller or cord tacos so that I know I have all the cords and plugs I need to survive. I'm a huge fan of these wireless headphones by Jabra. Not only do they have a vibrant color (also available in black and blue), the sound quality is amazing and makes traveling a breeze. Plus, no cords to keep track of or get in the way.
Have a great trip and remember to pack only the essentials. Your back will thank you.
