I'm going to NEW YORK CITY tomorrow!!! EEEK!
I am so excited. No work for two weeks, the city of my dreams and copious amounts of shopping and eating. How could it get any better?
I am so not into the whole packing thing though......see Exhibit A
Some undies and suitcase in a suitcase. Yeah, I've got some work to do.
I had a few people ask me about the travel wallet I showed in the video I did a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would throw up some pictures.
The brand is Modepelle (never heard of it before) and it cost me about $60.00 from a bag and luggage store in Chatswood.
Plain red leather and ticket/passport separators. That's all I wanted!
I've got my walking shoes sorted.
They are from Zierra ( previously known as Kumfs haha!) . They are the closest thing to a plain ballet flat with some sort of support I could find. Luckily they don't have a orthopedic look to them but do have lots of support which is what I need as I have high arches in my feet. Unfortunately I spend $190 on Kumfs. Name changes don't fool me!!!!
I've got my on board beauty products ready to go. Changed my mind a little bit from what I previously said I would take. In the end Vitamin E cream and oil, Kosmea Rosehip Oil, a travel size Bastiste dry shampoo, roll on perfume and deodorant made the cut!
Oh and these face wipes to keep fresssssssh!
I've got my maps ready to go!
Now I am just rambling. I am really really excited!
Can't lie though, I am a little worried about these news reports of a credible threat of a terror attack on NY/ Washington to coincide with the 10th anniversary of September 11. For those playing at home, I fly in on the evening of September 2011. I really didn't think when I booked that it would play on my mind too much but after spending a week re-living the aftermath of 9/11 through the media and these news reports, I just can't help feeling that it wasn't the best idea!
Nether the less, it's all booked now and there is nothing I can do about it. I am going to have an amazing time, I just know it!
I SERIOUSLY CAN'T WAIT!!
