OMG I’m so excited to be leaving next week for my first real vacation in over 2 years! 🙂 I am going to Hawaii for my very first time. I can’t wait to see how beautiful it is. It is a special trip as I am going with my boyfriend and his whole family and it will all be our first time. I thought I would put together a post on some of my travel essentials and what kind of snacks I like to bring with me on the plane. I personally do not enjoy plane food, so I am going to be prepared with lots of yummy healthy snacks and make sure I eat a good meal before I board the plane.
I am bringing some trail mix, coconut water, snack bars, almond butter, tea and oatmeal. The tea and oatmeal will also be for me to make for breakfast in the apartment we rented. I hate to be stuck without food! lol I think having some of your favourite go to foods in your carry on is a great idea. 😉
I always feel like my skin gets super dehydrated on the plane so I’m bringing my favourite lip balm, water to rehydrate and some moisturizing skin cream. I also found some great natural sunscreen that is paraben and nonoparticle free! My face cream is also paraben free and has an SPF of 25 so I don’t get a sun burn. I love my a nice tan but I hate getting burnt. I have had my share of vacation burns and I don’t enjoy them one bit. As I head into my mid thirty’s my skin is way more important to me. I have noticed a few small sun posts in my hair line and need to be more diligent with suncream up there.
I also bought myself some new reading material for the plane. I’m bringing my book that I have been neglecting as well as one food and health magazines, one fitness magazine and one fashion magazine. I think I covered all my bases. 😉
If any of you have any great travel tips or advice on where to go and eat in Oahu, please leave me comment below.
