hey, babes -- allie here! I've spent the last week galavanting through europe and thought I would share some HOH necessities that saved me during this trip! I hope you enjoy!
rule of traveling #1:
DON'T BE CAUGHT WITHOUT YOUR BPD.
(in store only)
for the sake of keeping my suitcase under 50 lbs, I only packed one stack. It was HARD, but my natural wooden BPD bracelets are my favorite go-to! I mean, you always need to have an arm party, right?
rule of traveling #2
SUNGLASSES. SUNGLASSES. SUNGLASSES.
the light eye struggle is real for this blue eyed girl. we spent so much time adventuring outdoors, that I would have been miserable without my TOMS sunnies.
rule of traveling #3
DON'T FORGET A HAIR TIE.
(or 5 or 6 because you are going to lose one, if not all of them)
just for a second, forget this delicious cone of gelato is even in the picture and note the almost insignifcant rubberband around my wrist. THAT RUBBERBAND IS NOT INSIGNIFCANT. trust me, when your walking 10+ miles a day, your going to want to get all that hair off of your neck. I'm OBSESSED with our By Lilla hair ties! why? because they are multipurpose! want a bracelet? you got it. want your hair to look jazzier than it would with a black hair tie? you got it.
rule of traveling #4
WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES.
working in a shoe store, you would think this would be easy for me. but, it wasn't. I was advised against packing my super cute booties (not conducive for walking 10+ miles a day), but instead, a pair of tennis shoes. thank goodness my boss babe looks out for my well being and talked me into these TOMS tennies! literally, one of the best decision I've ever made. I was able to walk the 1,710 steps to the top of the eiffel tower with ease! HA! that was a joke. I layed on the ground to take this picture instead.
