Must Have Packing List for Overseas Travel

I’m in the process of packing for an almost 3 week overseas trip for work this month. I haven’t taken an overseas trip in a few years, and I’m so excited for the opportunity. We are also getting to extend the trip for a little vaca in Vietnam afterwards!

For such a long trip that includes both business work and personal travel, I’ve spent a while figuring out what to pack while keeping everything in one checked bag. I thought it would be fun to share some of my strategies and essentials for packing!

Healthy Snacks for Air Travel

I try to stick to a (mostly) healthy diet, but it is very hard to stick to when you are traveling. Sometimes you don’t know when or where your next meal will be, so you eat what you can, when you can! Or you get so hungry by the time you do eat, that you end up making not so great choices.

During travel, just like in my regular life, I try to eat healthy foods frequently throughout the day. This not only keeps my energy up, but helps me stay full on healthy foods instead of grabbing a sugary snack. When you are traveling overseas or on a longer trip, it can be hard to pack food, but I’ve found a few staples that really help!

Minneapolis Superbowl Week Guide

Happy Superbowl week! Although I am still entirely bitter that my Minnesota Vikings did not make the Superbowl this year (again), but we are hosting the Superbowl this year which is exciting. If any of you are lucky enough to go to the Superbowl or are just visiting, I thought I would make a little Minneapolis tips guide to help you with your visit.

For those of you hosting your own Superbowl party, check out my party guide here!

Style + The City: Fall Travel in Chicago

Chicago is only a quick hour flight from my home in Minneapolis and is a great city for inspiration, shopping, and eating. I recently spent a few days there to do some fall shopping and to enjoy the beautiful city.

Style + The City: Late Summer in NYC

I recently took a late summer trip to NYC for fall inspiration. I was grateful for beautiful weather and lots of inspirational views. Shopping was a bit of a struggle– I find it hard to find stores that fit my style (and budget!). But I still enjoy taking in the scenery.

My favorite store for inspiration is ABC Carpet & Home (located right by the Flatiron building). Their bedding and home decor is beautiful and so much fun to browse. I also always make a point to stop by at the nearest Nike running store and get a fun souviner.

I was visiting during fashion week and searched high and low for celebrities but didn’t see any this time!
