For my first post, let’s talk about flights. In a few days, I will be heading to Hong Kong, where I will be studying for a few months. I’m super excited for the experience, not necessarily the twenty-hour flight. My carry-on bag is from Target, and it’s a special kind of bag that is splash-proof and prevents people from stealing information from the credit cards inside. I found this for under $50, but it’s well-worth the price, and it holds literally everything that I need.
Next, we have my essential essentials. I just bought this cute wallet from Target for around $15. It is very roomy and I love that my phone even fits inside one of the pockets! I have my inhaler, Apple headphones (which I found in a moving box in my basement), a wall charger, my portable charger, and three tinted lip balms.
I am OBSESSED with these tinted lip balms. They keep my lips so moisturized during the day, and for some reason, I have a lot of funny applying them. My favorite is the Coral Blush because it’s the most pigmented. I tried the other two colors and was slightly disappointed at how sheer they were. I had to mix them together in order for it to be seen on my lips. I would recommend buying the Coral Blush and leaving behind the other two.
Right now, I’m into planning and lettering. I got this adorable/artsy planner from TJ Maxx. I also carry around a small notebook that I keep story ideas, brain dumps, and French terms. Currently, I am making it my goal to learn three French terms a day, and so far it’s working out. To write everything down, I use these colorful triangle pens that I bought from school. I’m not sure if they can be found in-store.
Lastly, I want to stay healthy while on the plane. I found some immune support chewables in the health section of Target, as well as an eye mask in the travel section of Target. Honestly, I am always afraid of getting sick, and hate when there’s a strong light in my eyes while I’m trying to sleep so this will be perfect.
