"What's In My Carry On?" NYC Edition

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

In honor of my impending trip to New York, I decided to share what I keep in my carry on bag. I always try to have a travel blanket in case it's cold (which it ALWAYS is). Having a semi-healthy snack on hand is always a must, otherwise I head straight for the closest fast food option with a milkshake. I prefer these Special K chocolate pretzel bars because they taste like a candy bar and allegedly are healthy...which is good enough for me. Also, keeping a bottle of Evian facial spray on hand can make all the difference in my efforts of looking fresh faced upon arrival. All of these things fit ever so nicely in my handy dandy Le Pliage Tote. I've been hooked ever since I picked it up last spring at the Longchamp store in Paris. The genius is that it's expandable; so even if I wind up doing a 'little' shopping I'll still have room for everything. Is anyone else headed to NYC for the conferences next week? I'm getting so excited!

  5. i always use a scarf (a big pashmina) instead of a blanket as a wrap. works perfectly. and have a great time in NYC!

  19. That hot pink notebook is so cute! I live in Jersey so I'm always going into the city but I'm not going to IFBCon. Honestly I think it's a total rip off how much they're charging!

  42. Ohh, what great tips! I'm such a fan of the special K snacks, they don't taste like a regular healthy granola bar which I love. That blanket looks super soft, too!

  43. All must haves! Have you tried the double chocolate Special K protein bars??? They are the best! I eat one almost every morning for breakfast! Have fun at the conference. It's going to be stellar!!
