with another business trip around the corner, i was thinking about how my frequent flier life is quite enjoyable when i tote along my trusty travel kit filled with pint size delights and cozy pieces.

so, for those of you who booked an impromptu weekend jaunt on tripeedo or fancy business trip on virgin america, here are a few things that will keep you feeling & looking calm, cool & collected throughout your adventure.

sb’s globe trotting survival kit – part I:

* an uber comfy & cool travel outfit:

finding an outfit that is chic and 5-hours-in-a-seat comfy is a daunting task.

thankfully, american apparel leggings & tees, delicious james perse cashmere hoodies, love quotes scarves and ballet flats have made this task a little easier. top it off with your go-with-everything trench & favorite sunglasses & viola! instant airport style.

* pocketful of sunshine: malin + goetz essentials bag, $30

all natural grapefruit face wash, bergamot body wash, peppermint shampoo, cilantro hair conditioner and ultra rich body creme? yes please!

and while i religiously tote these in my carry-on, my home away from home, the soho grand, carries these as their guestroom bath products. double yay.

* pump up the volume: bose quiet comfort headphones, $299

within minutes of switching on these bad boys, endless passenger chatter, crying babies, roaring fans and all the other unpleasentries of flying with melt away.

best. headphones. ever.
