 My BlogHer Staycation

untitled (5)
The status of my life at present doesn’t allow for a real vacation so a STAYCATION it will be! Being a caregiver will not always allow  you to getaway.  I’ve been in this position for the last 3 years not complaining just need some getaway time all alone!!

Chil I need a break!  And there’s no better time for me to plan for some me time. BlogHer 2016 is coming to my beautiful city… Los Angeles!!

So I’ve booked a hotel for a couple days right outside my back door per say. Downtown LA has so much to offer for a staycation.  I’ll reconnect with bloggers that I’ve met along the way, learn new tricks and tips for the blog and meet with brands in hope of doing business. With all of the activities during the conference it will feel as if I’m far away from home.

Now the funny thing about this is when I travel I like to take items from home that will make my hotel stay as comfortable as home. But, a staycation can take this to a whole new level!

Packing for Staycation

Staycation In Downtown LA

As I prepare for my staycation I’m trying to decide what items to tuck away in my bag.  Or do I need a special bag just for comfort items?? Loll

When traveling I order fresh flower for my room for I’m always surrounded by them in my home, it’s a weekly purchase.  Since I’m in my home town and not far from the flower district, I’ll just take a trip to Wall Street and put together an arrangement for the GODS!!!

Looks like the first thing in the bag should be a nice vase to hold the bouquet that I will arrange!  Next on my list… Champagne!  The bubbly always puts me in a refreshed state of mind! (Note to self don’t forget the champagne flute)!

I like for my home to have the aroma you get when you walk into a Pier 1 imports or Bed Bath Beyond. These two spots always smell wonderful the moment you walk in the door. I’ve managed to duplicate that in my home with the layering of scents.

Therefore third runner up items will be a candle, room spray and my electric oil burner…must keep things smelling absolutely marvelous darling!!

The next combo will be my lovely bath pillow with a special combination of bath bubbles, oil and salts so that I can drift off to some exotic place in my mind while reading my current issue of Afar.

My final item is a must…a variety of my favorite teas for a mornings soothing moment before it hit the conference floor!

All of these items will assure that my staycation is just the brake that I need before returning to my reality , you know that thing called life!!!!
