Whether you’re house hopping throughout the 5 boroughs this Thanksgiving or leaving the state to visit relatives you can never be too prepared. This holiday season 3citygirlsnyc and Dove have teamed up to give you 4 tips to travel smart + a giveaway to help keep you feeling fresh during all those photos and cooking!
- Key Outfit Staples: There is no need to pack too many clothes for the weekend if you make sure to mix and match. A couple pair of skinny jeans, a few cute tops and a casual dress will go a long way for hanging out at home or meeting a friend out! A pair of boots and flats are also enough to get you through the long weekend.
- Electronics/Leisure: There is nothing worse than forgetting your phone charger! Avoid fighting over charging time at home, and remember to pack your own or buy an extra to always keep on hand for travel purposes. Are you going to have some downtime at home or while on the road? Buy that book you’ve been dying to read, or make sure to pack your camera – use this time to catch up and relax doing the things you love to do, whether it’s reading or photography.
- Essential Toiletries: It is tempting to pack our entire medicine cabinet when traveling, but definitely not efficient! Take only the essentials, so you don’t weigh yourself down. Pack your favorite shampoo and conditioner in travel size bottles, a toothbrush, and a long-lasting deodorant like Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant that goes on instantly dry and lasts 48 hours – this is sure to keep you feeling fresh during all those family photos and cooking! Keep it simple and you’ll be happy to have room in your bag for other important things.
- Comfort Items: Traveling can be rough if we don’t have the things that bring us comfort – if you are flying to your Thanksgiving destination or driving a long distance, make sure to pack comfortable shoes, a cozy sweater to keep you warm and your favorite pillow. Don’t forget a comfy pair of sweatpants for the trip and for lounging around the house!
What are your tips to travel in comfort? let us know and you’ll be entered to win (4) Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant long-lasting deodorant! Ends 11/15/16
