Recently, I've found that I finally have a little time to start my blog - sadly, thanks to the economy - but, luckily I will have more time to devote to Martha Stewart inspired projects, reading blogs of farm dwellers in Idaho and catching up on all my celebrity beauty secrets. While I do have less "real work" I am committed to making my blog NESTPARTY | Guide to a Stylish Life an awesome distraction from reality one fantastic idea at a time.

I'm dying to be one of those super organized people you see at airports that breezes through security - first class lane only, of course - that always seems to be "going somewhere exotic rather than Oklahoma".

Now that is a direct quote from my mother while she and I boarded a plane last month to visit my birth state... yep, you guessed it, Oklahoma.
::sigh:: Good times!

These are my above-all, must-haves-to-keep-me-sane at the airport and on-the-plane luxuries. They are all things I actually OWN and not what I should own, so I can attest to the wonders of each item and how it assists me in maintaining my zen-like state of mind even while flying.

In a couple of weeks I'll be jetting off to Chicago and then to Madison, Wisconsin and no doubt these items will save me life once again! Enjoy a peak into my luggage...

Dell notebook, $499 - it's so small, it slips in and out of my purse in a flash for security
iPod: Pink iPod Nano, $149 - I download spa worthy music and zone out
Dress: American Eagle, $39- super comfy, yet easily dressed up
Pocket Watch Necklace: Tempus Fugit, $65 -you can never be to the terminal too early to ask for an upgrade to first class
LUXE Maps: Luxe Travel Guides, $9 each - chic travel guides
Scarf/Blanket: Love Notes, $88 - can be used as scarf in terminal and blanket while on plane
Watch: Michael Kors, $195 - see "pocket watch necklace" -
Stamps: King & Queen of Hearts, $8 per book - to send postcards to all those that you'd love to make "pea green with envy"
Giraffe Journal: Papercup Design, $16 - to keep a travel log of events, places and people
High-tech Water Bottle: Hydra Coach, $28 - hydration is key to keeping sanity while traveling
Lip Shine: Philosophy, $8 -pure heaven for the lips
YSL Postcard Clutch: Yves Saint Laurent, $599 - it's a postcard from YSL - hello, fabulous!
Luggage: Steamline, The Editor Series, $125 - $450 - It's so vintage in style, but totally modern in function and design

Fun! I want to travel with you! I am one of those "unorganized" people you see at the airport. Its like a disaster area after security with shoes, purses and all going a million different directions. Love this citrusy colors and the necklace (not to mention the great reason for wearing 2 watches) Hehe!!!

I love it...As an unfrequent, frequent flyer wife of a travelin' mister (believe it or not this phrase makes perfect sense in my head!), I get the "trying to travel chic" thing. If you ever want to witness something funny, it is to see the two of us going through security. No matter what I try to take through or have to take off, it will be him that gets stopped.
Thanks for bein' my new friend. I hope you stop by often and find my blog somewhat entertaining. I'm off to explore yours more (I can already tell you, I love those blue skis that were peeking at me)! xxx kim

Such a punchy, energetically pretty selection of items! I'm really feeling yellow this year for the perhaps the first time. I always thought it was too "harsh" for my pale skin to pull off, but I've found a shade or two that work well and am really embracing the sunshine colour these days :)

Thank you very much for your caring comment, my dear. I hope you have a beautiful day!

♥ Jessica

I LOVE the luggage...had to check out their website! The Ambassador Series is perfect!


Have to leave another comment. Keep coming back to your site. Really like the way you write - Oklohoma makes me giggle :)
Oh, and someone should perhaps tell these steamlined people they should do that fabulous luggage in black & white, too.
By the way, I've linked your cameo post to my latest blogpost- all those beautiful black and white images made me paint a zebra pattern on my car today, will you believe it?! will post a photo once it's ready.
