Giveaway: The Travel Accessories You Didn’t Know You Needed

*Giveaway has ended*

 

I’ve traveled a fair amount in my 28-whole-years here on Earth, and I like to think that experience has taught me a thing or two about what items make cross-country (or trans-Atlantic) flights a bit more tolerable.

 

Reusable Water Bottle

 

Have you ever been the person in the security line who just. isn’t. prepared? You don’t have your laptop out, your coat isn’t off – and oh yeah, you have a full water bottle in your bag.

C’mon. Don’t be that person. Be a pro and come prepared with an empty water bottle.

My bottle of choice is this Baiji option. When I’m not using it, it rolls up and takes up next to no space. Then, right before my flight, I fill it up at a fountain.Most airports have even caught on to the trend and now provide filtered water from fountains.I’ve never had any problems with it leaking, either — always a plus, since I’m always spilling on myself anyway.

I bought this in a set of three — my fiance and his brother enjoyed the other two.

Seeing as we like to eat a balanced dinner whenever possible, I’ve been making a real effort to keep several quick, easy and healthy recipes in my pocket for those hectic weeks.

DIY Target-style Throw Pillows

Have you ever wandered down the “home” aisles of Target? Row after row of wonderful, perfectly designed throw pillows. Even the website wants me to buy them!

But they’re all $15-$20 each! I can’t justify that price point — especially with the throw pillow addiction I have going on. Which is why I set to finding a cheaper solution:
