Packing For Philly
So long ago, I left Philly with a bunch of negative feelings in tow. Tomorrow, I'm flying back to the city of brotherly love to have a good time and make my peace with one of the hardest times in my life. It has taken a lot of time for me feel better about everything that had happened there (work, relationships, personal safety), and I'm finally at a comfortable place to go and have a good time without all that weight on me. I feel like it's a really important step for me and will give me closure! Yay!
The trip really couldn't not have come at a better time. I ended up booking a round trip flight for $30 (thirty dollars!!!) — that was a sign for me to do this and own it. Since I'm flying Frontier, I'm going to pack light and only have my one beneath-the-seat bag. Have any of y'all flown Frontier? Is it as terrible as my friends claim? Hah!
Personally, I feel like I can make it through a two hour flight just fine, regardless of tiny seats and whatever. I'm not a needy traveler!
I'm packing (very) light! Here's what's in my bag:
❖ Cateye sunglasses
❖ Mini Hair Straightener
❖ Zipper pouch with all my toiletries and makeup! [+ this one!]
❖ Small jewelry bag with my gold goodies
❖ Free People High Street Skinny Scarf
❖ DIY Lace Up Flats
❖ Black denim shorts
❖ Free People Swing Tank
❖ Old Navy Henley Tank
❖ BooHoo Lace Up Bodysuit
❖ Thrifted Daisy-trimmed tank
❖ Polka Dot Dress
❖ Sacha Plunge Neck Tassel Tunic
And of course, I'm wearing my heavier items — denim skinny jeans, white tee, black and white flannel, and Jeffrey Campbell boots — for the flight!
Have you had to face any of your fears lately? How did it make you feel?
