What’s In My Bag: New Orleans Edition I was really hesitant to write this post because I didn’t want to jinx myself. I have a long history with New Orleans and oddly enough I’ve yet to step foot in the city. Four times I have booked a flight to New Orleans and four times I’ve had to cancel due to flooding. What’s In My Bag: New Orleans In a little less than 5 days I’m making my 5th attempt at a visit to the big easy.

Here’s why you need travel glasses! I recently encountered a travel nightmare while on vacation with my daughter, and I’m sure any glasses wearer can sympathize. We went to San Diego and while there, my daughter accidentally stepped on my glasses and broke them. Now, for those that know me personally, you know I am blind as a bat without my glasses. Hell, I’m blind as a bat with them sometimes lol, so needless to say, my vacation was ruined. The moment it happened I remember thinking, “Had I just ordered an extra set of travel glasses, this wouldn’t have been an issue”! Why You Should Use Coastal.com‘s I seriously have no good excuse for not having a spare pair. I always order my glasses through Coastal.com because they’re the best in the business. The have hundreds of brands, including Nicole Miller, Steve Madden, Bebe, and Converse.

I’m a compulsive under packer, I just hate lugging around bags of stuff… Okay, who am I kidding? I do it on purpose because I love shopping while traveling. It’s always fun coming home with new clothes and cute outfits planned for the following weeks. This past weekend, I hung out in sunny San Diego and spent some time shopping at Horton Plaza  Forever 21 Summer Style Forever 21 For The Win!Forever 21 Summer Style For stylish summertime attire, I head to Forever 21 where the clothes and accessories are always effortlessly on-trend and budget friendly (and the retailer is pretty much available in every city I travel to!). Once inside, I kept the vibe of the city in mind: think airy, light, a mix of classic and modern. Forever 21 Summer Style The Perfect Paring Forever 21 Summer Style I picked up the Cage Belted Dress because it’s so versatile. This crinkled woven shift dress is great for summer weather and works on any figure. The caged front detail keeps it modern, while the classic cut means swapping accessories or adding a jacket drastically changes the outfit altogether. A crisp blazer and wide belt makes it work appropriate; a denim jacket (like this…

I quite possibly might have the most tender headed kid on earth. For those that have no idea what that means let me break it down for you. Hair brushing in my house usually goes something like this. Step One: Consume a large amount of wine and brace myself for the task at hand Step Two: Gather all my supplies. This usually means 2-3 combs, 2-3 brushes and 2 different detangling sprays and a few different leave in conditioners. Step Three: Lie! In this step, I tell her how much it won’t hurt (a lie, and she knows it) but we do this step anyway. This step usually requires repeating 4-5 times but eventually, I wear her down. Step Four: Pleading, Bribing and Threatening! Now, this is where it gets real. This step involves lots of crying (from both of us), more drinking (I have no idea how I even still have a liver) and more threats (If you don’t sit still I’m sending you to school like this!). This process can range anywhere from an hour (if I say screw it and give up) to 2 hours if we take several breaks to off set the melt downs. There is sometimes a bribe involved,…
