Travel season is upon us. The kids will be getting out of school soon, and visits to Mom and Dad are probable with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day not too far away. Going on a quick getaway is always fun and exciting. However, leaving the comforts of home can sometimes take its toll. So bring along just a few essentials from home to make the travel experience the best that it can be.
• Long car rides and chilly airplanes can always make you think of that comfy down blanket that was left on the bed at home. Luxury designer, Scandia Home, has created a new down blanket that converts into a compact and travel size pillow. It is available in 5 fashion colors. Now there is a shade to match any carryon bag!
• Showing up to the hotel after a long day of travel and resting your head on the hotel’s pillow to only find that it is stiff and uncomfortable is not a welcoming experience. If only there was room in the suitcase to bring that down pillow from home. Well, guess what, now there is! The Hotel Down Travel Pillow Case (http://www.pioneerlinens.com/scandia-down-hotel-travel-case)is a hotel-hopping person’s best friend. Very similar to a pillow protector, this travel pillow case is enveloped in pure white goose down with an opening to place any hotel’s standard size pillow on the inside. Now that down pillow can go wherever your travels may take you.
• Packing shoes into a suitcase among freshly laundered clothing can seem a bit tricky. Sneakers for working out can’t really fit into the side pockets like the sandals can. And what about the smell that some shoes may bring along with them? This odor isn’t something you want to rub off on your vacation clothes. So, what to do? Elizabeth W. has created a wonderful line a lavender scented travel and storage accessories, including the Lavender Filled Shoe Bag (http://www.pioneerlinens.com/Elizabeth-W-Lavender-Shoe-Bag). A beautiful ivory linen bag holds French lavender behind a sheer silk band and is detailed with a drawstring closure.
• Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now! Everyone has needed to take an emergency bathroom break, and sometimes the privacy of our own bathroom isn’t available. Nothing is more embarrassing then having to fess-up to that awful odor coming out of the bathroom, except now. Poo~Pourri is a specially formulated genius of a bathroom deodorizer! Unlike other bathroom sprays that tend to just mask the smell that lingers in the air, Poo~Pourri actually eliminates the odor all together. Simply spray directly into the toilet bowl before you go, and let the essential oils fill the bathroom with a lemony scent that will forever change the dreaded public bathroom experience.
