4 Must-Have Bags for Traveling

4 Must-Have Bags for Traveling

If there's one thing you should know about me it's that I love to travel and be on the go! Going on vacation and exploring new places is so exciting for me. Whether I'm gearing up for a relaxing and laid back beach vacation or jetting off to explore a new city, I have my tried and true packing process and I always have my necessities on hand so that I'm never caught in a new place without my essentials.

Since I grew up traveling, I can pack a suitcase faster than you could imagine. I've been able to get a good grip on what types of bags to pack all my belongings in whether I'm heading somewhere for a day trip or an extended two-week vacay. Since I do a lot of packing (and unpacking) when I go on trips, I thought it would be a good idea to round up four of my favorite bags to travel with. I own all of these products and I can't wait to tell you all about them!

Fun Luggage Tags to Help You Spot Your Bag at the Airport

Fun Luggage Tags to Help You Spot Your Bag at the Airport

Picture this: you're at the airport and your flight just landed. You're either starting your vacation or you're home and you're waiting for your bag at baggage claim. You see a bag come down onto the carousel and it looks almost identical to yours. How are you supposed to tell if it's your bag or not? If you thought to yourself: "check the luggage tag...duh!" then you're totally right! Almost anyone who has been in an airport knows that, right? 

Having recognizable luggage tags is a must for travelers. Not only do luggage tags store your information in case your bag gets lost, but they also help your bag stand out from others. When searching for a new luggage tag for your suitcase, you'll want one that'll stay attached to your bag and you'll want to make sure it's durable and won't break from being tossed around by airline personnel that are handling your bags.

My Weekend Trip to LA

My Weekend Trip to LA

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles for a business trip with a colleague of mine. Both of us had never been to LA before, so spending the weekend there was a great experience. My coworker, Toni, and I flew to LAX early Saturday morning. Once we arrived, we grabbed our bags and hopped in the car with our Lyft driver to make our way to our hotel. We stayed in downtown LA at the Westin Bonaventure.

How to Survive Your First Solo Business Trip

How to Survive Your First Solo Business Trip

I'm lucky enough to have a job that allows me to occasionally travel for work. As a matter of fact, I'm actually heading to LA this weekend for a business trip. You better believe that I'll be playing Miley Cyrus' Party in the USA and singing "hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream and a cardigannn" as I walk off the plane! 

Back in November I had to take my first solo business trip to Denver. I have flown to and from Germany by myself before, but I was meeting my family there, so it was a little bit different. I had never flown to a place and stayed overnight somewhere all by myself. Prior to my trip to Colorado I had only been to the Denver area once and it was when I was a kid.

Solo business travel can be weird, especially if you haven't traveled alone much like me. So, if you're a working millennial who may be going on a business trip by yourself in the future, I put together a first solo business trip survival guide below. These tips apply not only to business trips, but to any type of solo travel.
