How travel makes me feel…lol. Photo: Nasilele Photography taken in Brooklyn
I LOOOOVE to travel. It doesn’t even have to be some far away exotic location for me to have an amazing time—I have found adventure through staycations here in NYC, driving six hours up to the Adirondacks to hike and water bike, and going to Memphis on a solo eating tour among many places I’ve visited. Travel doesn’t always have to be some tremendous expenditure with magazine editorial pics posted to the Gram—all you really need is a good imagination and to be open to try new things. Ok yeah, having some money is also necessary but you definitely don’t have to be balling to “ball” on your travels.
Folks, I’m writing this blog post from the future (I’m six hours ahead of EST..lol) in Stockholm, Sweden where I’ll be for the next few days before heading off to a few more cities around Europe. I’m here with Tracy from Tracy’s New York Life and we’ll later meet up with Terri from Tripping with Terri and Olga from Dreams in Heels—I met all three ladies during my trip to Ecuador last year and decided to continue to stalk them through Europe…lol.
I am a recovering overpacker. Years of traveling have helped me to learn from my superfluous ways—when I was 12 I went on a 15-day school trip to Australia and New Zealand and brought two HUGE suitcases filled with clothes that I had to lug around as we went from city to city. I didn’t even wear half of the stuff I packed. It still took until I was in my 30s to somewhat learn my lesson. Even then I went from doing well with packing clothes to taking WAY too many beauty items with me—you can see that in my past What’s Going in My Beauty Bag posts.
I partly blame my Caribbean upbringing for my overpacking ways—there wasn’t a single time in my entire life that I saw any of my family going to and from Trinidad with less than like three suitcases (or grips as they call them)…lol.
I’m heading to Ecuador, folks! I’m excited as this is my first time visiting the country and according to my itinerary I have a lot of fun things in store for me over the next week. Make sure you’re following me on Instagram, Snapchat (@stylenbeautydoc), Twitter, and Facebook to see how things unfold :)

It’s tempting to just roll up to the airport in your jammies, but I really want you to not…lol. Yes, you want to be comfortable (I do, too especially since everything on me even my arms swells up like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day balloon float) but you also want to look presentable in case of things like potential first class upgrades, possibly meeting your soul mate, or shoot—you can even meet your next career opportunity. Can’t do that with PINK splattered across your booty…lol. So here’s a post on what to wear to the airport :)
