Travel Diaries: The Worst Parts of Being on an Airplane

Hey fwendz! Sorry I’ve been MIA — been SO busy and traveling a ton, but I’m baackkkk and have a bunch of fun posts coming soon. Speaking of traveling I’ve been experiencing a lot of the same shit over and over so wanted to share some realness about being on an airplane.

SO,ย we all know traveling is a bitch. The whole process: packing, ubering to the airport, going through security, spending $75 on a glass of wine at the airport…but today I’m going to focus on the actual act of flying and discussing the shit — the very annoying, uncomfortable and WTF shit — that actually happens on an airplane.

I’ve experienced literally everything on this list, but please share any other ridiculousness in the ย comments that you’ve dealt with while on a plane!

  1. Finding out your seat buddies are a smelly old man and a crying baby. NOoooOOoo
  2. When you have to get up to go to the bathroom and have to pass people in the aisle and rub butts. Like, is this considered our first date? Do you want my phone number?
  3. Your seat doesn’t recline and you’re on a 6 hour flight.
  4. You sit next to the airplane police and tells you you shouldn’t put your jacket in the overhead. (This JUST happened to me last week. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS and LET ME LIVE)
  5. Your seat mate keeps hogging the armrest and you start playing a bitchy game of MOVE YOUR ELBLOW.
  6. You have an ideal row 4 window seat and a family of 18 asks you to switch with them so they can “all be together”. NOPE. I DON’T CARE. I GLADLY ACCEPT TITLE OF BIGGEST BITCH ON THE PLANE.
  7. You sit in the vicinity of a farter. RIP
  8. You’re on a business trip and have to work on the plane but there is not enough space on your tray to fit your computer so you are working hunched in a little ball.
  9. The person diagonal from you won’t shut their window and it is GLARING into your eyeballs.
  10. Someone pukes and the whole plane smells making you want to puke.
  11. When they bake fresh cookies for first class…and you’re definitely not in first class. RUDE
  12. The food. Nuff said. (although I do have to say Virgin’s cheese plate is aiite)
  13. You haven’t showered in two days and you sit next to a cute guy. That would happen to me.
  14. You’re watching a movie and a sex scene comes on and you feel like everyone is judging you. AGAIN, LET ME LIVE
  15. When you land, and are trying to get off the plane someone behind you doesn’t let you go first. ISN’T IT COMMON KNOWLEDGE YOU DEPLANE IN ORDER. STEP BACK BRO

Happy flying! ๐Ÿ˜‚

What a California Girl Learned in a Blizzard

I’m baaaack! Did ya miss me? #missedyoutoo SO! Where the heck have I been?

Well, I spent the last week in New York and Boston for our latest #PoshNation events and quickly learned we were heading to a blizzard…which, for a California gal is not ideal. To be honest, I never even owned and coat (like a real COAT) until I started traveling for work 4 years ago. Any other time I went to the snow I would borrow a friends or family members winter appropriate pieces.

During this most recent trip to NY, I came to a lot of realizations about how utterly unprepared I was and how many things about the snow you don’t ever realize unless you have to experience it. So yes, some of these things may seem RIDICULOUS but hey — I live in a state where the weather is 70 degrees 10 months out of the year…so give your warm blooded girl a break.

Without further adieu….my list of shit I learned as a Cali girl in a blizzard.

  • There is no way in hell you are going to find a coat or snow boots to purchase at any store in California in March…I tried.
  • 20 degrees feels like needles rushing through your body and a snowman blowing icicles kisses on your face.
  • You really need snow boots. Not ankle boots. Not suede boots. Not Nike sneakers (which is all of what I brought). Waterproof boots with thick socks and treading is the top choice — I was slipping and tripping and sliding…not fun.
  • Layering is key — And not just layering a coat over a t-shirt…also something I am guilty of doing.
  • Literally nothing is open and you should stock up on things you need. LIKE WINE OR WATER OR FOOD. Thank goodness our hotel restaurant was open!
  • Booze. It’s obviously a life essential in a crisis such as a blizzard. #enoughsaid
  • Fingerless gloves are useless. Just no.
  • Your phone WILL go into arctic shock and not function. It literally shut off. Like “Bitch I’m too cold to work” and my fingers were too cold to detect any touch screen functions…so there was that.
  • Makeup is completely unnecessary. I attempted once during the day and I ended up getting it all over a scarf and because it was so cold my eyes watered…I looked way cute.
  • Accessories are pretty much key. Beanies, gloves, scarves…you need them all.
  • Uber drivers expect you to climb over a wall of snow to get in the car. If I can’t even WALK properly in the snow how do you expect me to climb through an icy hill to get in?
  • I couldn’t tell if my feet were wet or cold. They were both.
  • You go from freezing cold outside, to sweating hot inside – there is no balance.
  • Peeling off layers and putting them back on is a fucking PROCESS and takes legit 5 minutes.

Pretty much, the snow is no joke BUT I do have to say it’s absolutely beautiful and I had a grand ole time experiencing it on this trip. Is it summer yet? โ˜€๏ธ

Travel Diaries: Miami

WASSUP BEACHESSS!!

For those of you who follow my crazinessย on social media, you probably saw I was in Miami week…and lucky for me it was a work trip that turned into a play trip. I mean, I’m to the point in my life that if I’m traveling for work, you bettah believe I’m staying an extra day to enjoy. No kids, no man, no problem! Also, it was 85 degrees in Miami sooooo how could I not have stayed?! The pool was just calling my whiter-than-white legs to be there.

OOTD DEETS
Skirt: Scored fromย Adiel’s Boutiqueย on ย Poshmark //ย Top,ย Shoesย & Earrings:ย Asosย // Lipstick: NYX Cosmetics – Pink Lust

Let’s start with the #WERK, though: If you have been a follower of mine from theย Poshmark early days (if you didn’t know, I have been working at Poshmark for FIVE years!), you know I used to plan live events across the country that we traveled to to meet and connect with our community members and while we took a little break, we are BACK on the #PoshNation tour again. I mean, we have some seriously inspiring Seller Stylists in our community building empires, creating brands, and just overall using the app in ways we always dreamed about. So when we get to meet face to face and hear their stories first hand — ISSS A DREAAM. I usually want to cry because I’m so verklempt (this is the yiddish word for overwhelmed with emotion) with these women (and men!).

So we kicked off the trip getting ready for Poshmark’s #PoshNation Miami event on Thursday night and it was SO AMAZING to meet all the local Miami Seller Stylists. I rocked a very Miami outfit – white, neons, and tassels. We had drankkss, hit up the Photo Booth, took SO many selfies and had an unforgettable evening. I hope if I come to your city you come out to meet us!

On to the PLAY portion of the trip: For work we stayed at The Surfcomber which was sold out (it was boat week so finding a room was challenging even for one night) but my girl and I found The Nautilus hotel on Hotel Tonight. It was overpriced but super cute – exactly what you would picture for a South Beach hotel: palm trees inside, marble tables, tufted beds and a Alice in Wonderland style pool – so quirky, fun and chic!

After we checked in we napped, got ready and went to Mango’s — a SUPER touristy bar with impersonators, neon lights, chippendale style performers and overpriced drinks (are we sensing a theme in Miami, fuck it’s expensive!). Mango’s was a HUGE bar, they had different rooms with different style music, black lights, and since it’s a huge tourist spot, it gets crowded which was fun!

After Mangos? 3am pizza delivered to the hotel…DUH!

Our last day was spent by the pool, eating BLTs and drinking prosecco. We also found out our flight was delayed but gave not one fuck because that just meant more pool time for us. YOLO. Ok, I need to stop staying that. Really. Our last stop was oysters and peel-n-shrimp at the Ritz because, YOLO. DAMNIT.

Overall Miami, you really brought the heat and my whiteness is a little more glowing…but still white. Oh well. If you have any questions about what else I did or ate or wore, let me know!

XO, bitches…I mean, beaches. ๐Ÿ˜œ
