Travel| Packing 101: 5 Tips to Make Packing Easier


I. HATE. PACKING. I really do. I can never decide what I want to bring and I always end up leaving something important or not bringing enough of something. The story of my traveling life. So in an effort to alleviate some of my stress I created "The HGB Packing List" to make sure I pack everything I need for any trip. In addition to the packing list, I will also share some packing tips that will help prevent overpacking with all of these baggage fees. 1. Use travel size toiletries- I know when traveling you want to feel like you are at home, but full-size products are very bulky. Buy travel size items or the travel size bottles from places like the $.99. I pour my full size products into the smaller bottles when traveling. Use ziploc bags to keep all of your toiletries together. 2. Don't pack what is already there. Make sure your hotel has the amenities to make packing easier. … [Read More...]

Travel| 5 Travel Apps to Download Before Your Next Trip!


In less than one week I will embark on a 13-hour flight to the UAE. If you couldn't tell before, I am super excited! I've been doing lots of research for my trip and decided to look into some apps to download. First, I must say, PLEASE BE SURE TO CALL YOUR WIRELESS PROVIDER TO FIND OUT THE FEES ASSOCIATED WITH INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL. Yes I had to put that in caps. There is nothing worse then coming back to home and getting a phone bill for hundreds of dollars because you did not find out about those fees. I don't plan on making any calls during my trip so my app game must be on point so that I can stay in contact with my family in case of emergency. I will be disabling my data and using strickly wi-fi because it is free and I won't be charged for anything. So after doing a little research and playing around with the apps (some of them I use already) here are are 5 apps that you should … [Read More...]

Travel| What To Do in Abu Dhabi and Dubai

Recently Updated1-001

Last week I told you all that I will be going to the UAE for a little vacation in the coming weeks. In anticipation for this trip, as I do with other trips, I needed to figure out what we could do while on vacation. When I told people that I was going some were excited because they want to travel there, others were like "What are you going to do out there?" So here is your answer. At this point in my life, I'm not all about the "turn up" anymore. Don't get me wrong, I still want to party and have a good time, but I also want to see the world. I'm always down for a good excursion or sightseeing. If I have the means to travel to certain places I don't just want to be posted up with a drink in my hand, I want to experience different things. So here is what my boyfriend and I plan to do while in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This is the final version of the list. It went through many revisions … [Read More...]
