Lots of small things can add up to just the right large thing! Correct?

Traveling is made up of many, many small details. And oh so many small items that we
“cannot live without.”

When traveling overseas this item is TOTALLY necessary. The adaptor. And somehow they seem to get misplaced or, more often, left in the outlets of that far away hotel or apartment.
For my upcoming trip to England I thought I had at least three of these. WRONG. I could only find one in our house. “We’ll buy one in the airport,” says husband. Nope. They rarely sell individual adaptors: you need to buy a set of expensive, fancy, unnecessary world-wide adaptors. So off to Amazon Prime for me.
Don’t you love the lime green?


Then we have this simple little beauty from Ulta which they call a pencil case. I bought one two trips ago and loved it, so just bought another. Not too big, but clear from easy viewing, the zipper doesn’t catch on makeup brush hairs, it’s deep and altogether just perfect! I use one for my make up and another for skin creams that are in awkward round containers (they are not lotions so won’t go into small travel bottles.)




I cover myself in sunscreen…every day of the year.  I have showed you the Skin Ceuticals lotion I use on my face: it’s the best!  But for traveling, and day trips with a back pack, and a who-knows-where-you-will-end-up itinerary, this little cutie will do the trick. Because it’s a stick there is no spilling, no top to put on and, of course, it’s easy to stash in a bag.


It’s exactly 3″ high. Find it HERE


The upcoming trip is just a little more than a week away! Unbelievably (to me) I am very very organized this time: cleaned my Emme Bag, repacked it after checking and refilling all my small bottles; almost… decided as to which shoes (always a difficult task, no?) I will be taking and have exchanged my dollars for some pounds.
