How to Survive a Long Flight

Blogger Amanda's OK shares tips on how to survive a long flight

Hola! Bonjour! 'Ello! I'm jetting off on an exciting international trip across the pond today! C and I are going somewhere we've never been before and I.AM.PUMPED. Any guesses where?! Stay tuned to my Instagram stories to find out! I'm so excited to share our destination with you (or actually two destinations) but until then I thought I would share some tips on how to survive a long flight. They can be really stressful....flying in general can be stressful....but luckily with the right tips, tricks and accessories, the phrase "sit back, relax and enjoy the flight" can be a reality!

This will be my third trip to Europe. The first time, I was so anxious about the long flight. I didn't know how I would survive! We ended up doing a 24 hour layover in NYC to break up the flying time.....turns out, though, the long flight wasn't that bad! The second time I flew to Europe, it was a nine hour overnight flight (my first overnight flight) straight from Dallas. Again, I was so anxious.....I usually can't sleep on planes and I was so worried it would be awake the entire time and it would cause me to start the trip off feeling exhausted. It was much better than I anticipated, though! On both of those trips I actually enjoyed the flights and looked forward to the flights home!

Happy October 1! Happy Fall! Happy National Pumpkin Spice Day! My favorite time of the year is FINALLY here and I couldn't be more excited.....not to mention there is a cold front coming and I'm going on a fall vacay later this week, eeeeek!

You may have noticed I didn't post my monthly favorites roundup in August or September. Honestly, I was having a hard time finding enough items I truly loved to fill up a blog post and I wasn't getting many views on those posts. They take a lot of time to put together so I didn't think they were worth the effort BUT several of you noticed they were missing and asked what had happened to them. Moving forward, I think I'm going to do seasonal favorites, instead! I might throw in an occasional holiday themed post in addition to spring, summer, fall and winter...if you'd like that, please let me know as it's hard to gauge people's interest without feedback.

So, without further ado, here are my Fall Favorites! Get ready for pumpkin spice everything!
