As I prepare to embark on Seven Seas Voyager, I gratefully remember a "chance" meeting.
My life has always been full of coincidence and serendipity. Flying home after my first cruise contract, I found myself seated next to Edie Rodriguez. At the time she was the dynamic president of Crystal Cruises.
Best Travel Tip Ever (Really!)
We talked about a lifetime of travel and how to make it easier. She gave me the best travel tip ever.  She told me she never had to pack a makeup or toiletries bag. Instead, she purchased duplicates of everything.
Edie's Time Saving Tip

  1. Purchase two sets of your go-to, necessary, must have toiletries, makeup, medicines.
  2. Order travel bags. I found the bags pictured above on Amazon and order several at a time. One for toiletries, first aid, and sun products. The other for hair and makeup products. Many of you will probably only need one of these. They hold a lot and the compartments make it easy to organize everything.
  3.  As soon you arrive home from a trip, check and replace anything missing - from eyeliner to toothpaste to Q-tips (Hehhe. Get it? Q tips.).
  4. Store your travel bag away until your next trip.

Why Didn't I Think of That?
I remember thinking, "duh, why have I never done this!"  Two careers with full-time travel? Duh, duh, duh.  While it isn't inexpensive up front, it is a huge energy and time saver afterwards!
If, like me, "travel" is your middle name -- or a huge part of your life -- put this tip into play as soon as possible. You'll be so glad you did! And, thanks Edie, for this time saving tip!
Drop me a line on Facebook and share your best travel tip!

What is beauty? The most obvious phrase that comes to mind is “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Simple right? But the more I think about this, the more I’ve come to realize that “Beauty is in the mind of the beholder.”
