Monday Must Haves #23

It's been a while, huh?  I think my last MMH was in February!  Crazy times!  It's been a real rollercoaster since then, from blog stuff to personal stuff to everything in between!

S and I have been planning a trip {which I'm actually taking next week, how exciting!} and as much as I love going to see him, I really *don't* like the 8 hours flying there and back ~sad face~ My flights are usually okay, I get fed a lot of yummy food and the entertainment isn't bad.  But you need more than that to make an okay flight into a really good, comfortable one.  So this week, my Monday Must Haves are all about making your flight the best it can be!

1980's SLOUCH SWEATER by R J Studio Made in USA size medium Green & White Heart Polkadot
♥ So, I know when I land in NJ at about 1pm, the July heat will likely cause me to melt like a popsicle left in the sun.  ~However~, when you're up on that plane, it gets *chilly*.  One important factor for comfort is warmth, and even though they give you a blanket, wearing a cute, light sweater will keep the cold away and will be easy to stuff in your travel bag once you get outside!

SALE -- Kawaii Sleeping Eye Mask - 'My Neighbor Totoro'
♥ This cute little devil is perfect for a long flight like mine!  Since I'm going to be travelling during the day, it'll be bright out and, since I'll be so excited to go, I'll probably not sleep much the night before!  It's always good to get some shut eye on the plane (Yes, S, people still do say 'shut eye'!) but that doesn't always come easy, especially if the person next to you ~really really really~ wants to look at clouds the whole flight (-_-) Stick on one of these pretties and you'll be sleeping in no time!

The Complete Science Fiction Treasury of H.G. Wells (HARDCOVER 1978)
♥ Sometimes, you just don't want to watch a movie or listen to music.  Getting lost in a good book is an excellent way to spend a few of those long hours and make them fly by before you know it!  I love a bit of H.G.Wells, I think he's an excellent writer and a collection of stories would be perfect to dive into!  Note: getting stuck into a book can sometimes stop your very-nice-but-super-chatty neighbour quiet down some.  Or annoy the person the other side!  Bonus!

Above all else, to make your flight as comfortable as possible, *move around* and *drink plenty of water*.  It's important to stay as active as possible and keep hydrated (^_^) These are my top three flight necessities, to stop me from going mad on a flight that is much too long!  What are your top three things to bring with you on your travels?  And are you going anywhere nice for a holiday this year?

Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you're having an awesome week!
