Reservations have been made, flights have been booked, my itinerary has been finalized, and my trip to Greece is quickly approaching. I am now completely moved out of my apartment so now it is time to get some things in order in preparation for my travels. Starting in Los Angeles, I will fly to Montreal to meet my friend Natalie. From Montreal, we will make our way to Greece, flying into Athens, then traveling to Santorini and Mykonos. Natalie and I will fly back to Athens where we will part ways. While she heads to Vienna, I will make my way to New York and then back home a couple days later. The last time I flew for such a duration, I was a young child and slept nearly the whole flight. As I have grown up, falling asleep on a plane seems to be more difficult. While I am still somewhat small, curling up in a ball on what used to feel like a massive seat doesn’t seem as easy as it used to. It was suggested to take a sleeping pill, but I can totally see myself pulling a Bridesmaids and wandering the plane so I think I am going to find an alternative. I will probably be far too excited to sleep much anyway but we will just have to wait and see…

Flying tends to put some stress on my skin so some beauty products to help me stay refreshed and hydrated will be very important. When flying, I never like having my hair in my face so you’ll find me sporting a high pony or messy top bun. My EmiJay skinny hairties will be a must! Obviously my Nivea chapstick comes with me everywhere I go, but I will need to pack a hydrating mist of some sort to maintain a radiant and hydrated complexion. I always recommend Mario Badescu rose water facial spray but have also been meaning to try Epicurens Aloe Cucumber mist. Here are some other options to consider as well (1,2,3). I will probably apply some mascara not long before landing but other than that, I will be makeup free on this flight (not that I wear much makeup to begin with) – it feels so much better that way.
In addition to staying on top of my skincare, I will definitely need to be prepared to keep myself entertained or at the very least occupied during this long flight. I will be bringing a notebook and coloring book to consume some of this time. I have shared some cool coloring books I’ve stumbled upon above. My airplane playlist will be crucial as will a pair of comfortable headphones or earbuds, a season or two of Friends, and some games on my phone. I will have a lot to write about and plenty of time to do so on my way back from Europe so stay tuned!
