Summer travel time is getting closer every day, and with that, it’s always great to find a few things that can make travel a little easier in one way or another. How many of you remember flying years ago? When I first started flying, the stewardess brought pillows and blankets for everyone, we all got an in flight meal if we wanted, and all at no extra charge. Now we have to pay for just about everything unless you opt to pay a huge amount to fly first class or are lucky enough to get bumped up to first class.
So I thought I’d show you a few things that are easy to transport and can make traveling just a little more comfortable.
I don’t know about you, but it seems like every time I get on a plane these days, it’s like it’s time to play “freeze out”! Remember playing that when you were younger?
Well, I loved to play it then, but these days, not so much. So I really love Cabeau’s Extra Thick & Warm Fluffy Infused Socks. The ones I have smell like lavender, so calm and relaxing, and they do warm my feet right up! These socks come in three colors, each infused with their own scent. The orchid color comes infused with lavender, black comes infused with peppermint and blue comes infused with aloe.
If you’ve ever tried to sleep during a flight, you know it can really wreck havoc on your neck, and if you’re able to sleep, you often end up waking with pain due to your head being at an unnatural angle. That’s a miserable way to start out a vacation! I’ve used numerous pillows similar to these, but the Memory Foam Evolution Pillow from Cabeau, is the first one that actually supported my head and neck. It has a raised area on top that helps keep your head straighter and more comfortable while you sleep, it also doesn’t slip since you can use the cord to keep it secure. It also has a pocket for your phone or iPod so that you can easily listen to your music and drown out the noise around you. And it’s Memory Foam, so you know it’s going to feel really good! It comes in a variety of colors for every taste!
Back again to the freeze out game, and if you do manage to get a blanket from the stewardess, it’s more like a very thin sheet. I’ve never found them to offer much warmth. The Fold and Go Blanket is a nice thick blanket made of French microfibers and measure a nice, comfortable size. Not only that, but it comes in a case made of the same materials and if you don’t need to use the blanket itself, you can use the whole thing to offer you some really good lumbar support, or as a pillow or even as a seat cushion. I also love that it has a carry handle, that also just happens to slide right over the handle of my carry on bag. So it’s super simple to keep track of!
