Spring Break Essentials under $100

Jean Ahn

Hi! Hello! How is everyone doing?!

Ok, so I haven’t actually had a spring break in YEARS but since I’m headed to Arizona for a friend’s bachelorette in a week it does kind of feel like spring break for me… so I decided to put together some of my favorite items for a spring getaway (some I have purchased for my upcoming trip) under $100. Actually many are under $50 but some are a little on the pricey side.

This season I have noticed a TON of neon for spring which I’m loving! If I had a choice I would wear bright colors everyday of the year!

Straw Bag: I shared this one over on Insta stories the other day and I am so glad I found this! I was on the hunt for a straw bag for the pool and beach but didn’t want to spend a ton. It’s the perfect size to hold your towel, sunscreen, water etc. and its super cute! I love the classic shape of this bag.

Striped Cami: I just got this top and it comes in a few other colors and its perfect for spring and summer. You can tie a knot for a more fitted look too and pair with white pants or shorts.

Pineapple Earrings: I couldn’t help myself and I just got these earrings. They are so perfect for spring and summer and I can’t to wear them for my Hawaii trip this summer.

Quay Aviators: I have had these sunnies for a few years and you can never go wrong with this pair. I love this classic, oversized style. I recommend the 62 mm for an extra bougie look!

Ted Baker crossbody purse: This is perfect for a night out on the town or just going to dinner. It matches with just about everything and its a great size to fit all your essentials.

Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals: These are my go-to sandals. They are comfy, cute and super high quality. I love these and I especially love the almond color since they match with everything.

Beach Hat: This is actually one my most selling items on Liketoknow.it and its the perfect wide brim hat perfect for the pool or beach plus it’s under $20! I got this one last summer when I went to Catalina and it was the perfect size and easy to fold in my suitcase as well.

And there you have it, my essentials for a spring break getaway! Let me know some of your favorite items in the comments below.

My five travel hacks to ensure smooth travels

Jean Ahn

Hi Hi! How is everyone doing?!

I have been meaning to do a post on sharing some of my travel tips and tricks for a while… I have gotten many questions about about sharing my travel tips since I do travel about once or twice a month. I have learned many time saving and money saving tricks along the way and of course wanted to share. :)

Tip 1: Invest in a clear zippered pouch: Put all your travel size liquids in a clear zippered pouch. I noticed only some airports care about having liquids in a clear bag but just to be safe I always carry travel sized liquids in a zippered pouch, it keeps things safe and in tact. Plus it just looks so much better than ziplock bags. I like this one and this one.

Tip 2: Never check a bag (unless you really have to) I hardly ever check a bag unless I’m flying international or I absolutely have to. It saves you $$ and soo much time! I can’t stand waiting at the baggage claim carousel wondering if my bag made it through haha!

Tip 3: Roll all your clothing to optimize space! Since I travel with only a carry on suitcase I roll every single clothing item possible. It creates the most space and you can actually end up fitting quite a bit. I always wear a jacket or cardigan when I travel which also helps save space as well.

Tip 4: Bring a water bottle. Bottled waters are usually pretty pricey at any airport so I always throw an empty Voss or Smart Water bottle in my bag and fill it up at a water fountain. (May depend on the quality of the water where you are) I love that they are super light yet sturdy and if I’m through with them I just throw it in recycling. (Yes we are all about recycling in Washington state) I have brought tumblers with me on past trips and I ended up being annoyed with them because they take up space and you’re stuck carrying it around with you all day.

Tip 5: Use the app TripIt to organize all your confirmation numbers, flight gates and hotel addresses. Whenever you receive an email confirmation after booking a flight, hotel, car rental, Stub Hub, Open Table and Fandango, Tripit will automatically import your plans from your inbox and create an itinerary with all the details like confirmation numbers, flight gates and hotel addresses. How convenient is that?

Tip 6: I know I said I had five but since this pertains to Seattlelites… when I head to the airport I always take the Link Lightrail, since I live in downtown it is super easy for me to get to but honestly it’s quick, easy and you don’t have to deal with the traffic! Plus its only $3 one way! I typically Uber to the station and catch the train there. Also if you work in downtown and have parking, totally worth leaving your car in your work parking garage and taking the light rail. Another note, it is a bit of a walk from where you get off to the gates but its not too bad and you will definitely get your steps in for the day!

Oh and I wanted to mention this (although many of you probably know this) having a hard shell suitcase with spinner wheels is a total lifesaver! I would invest in a high quality durable suitcase. I like this and this.

The 10 essential products you need in 2019

Jean Ahn

Hello! How is everyone doing?

I have been meaning to do a post about the top 10 must-have products in 2019. While some of these pieces are on the pricey side I firmly believe its important to invest in products that you will use daily and will last a lifetime. And from time to time you just might be able to find the high end products on sale!

Here are the 10 products I think you need in 2019:

My Post2.jpg
  1. Mason Pearson Hairbrush: I have had this hairbrush for over 20 years! No seriously…something about this brush just makes brushing your hair enjoyable. It helps in preventing tangles and makes your hair silky soft. The bristles have just the right amount of toughness and softness to really make your hair the best it can be.

  2. Skin Fridge: Ok first of all how cute is this pink mini fridge? I love the retro look and its perfect for the bathroom to store your skin products! This is actually on my wish list and I haven’t actually purchased yet but they are all the rage! Also I compared all the reviews for mini fridges and this one had the best reviews.

  3. Long Stem Wine glasses: Maybe it was inspo from Olivia Pope from Scandal but I love long stem wine glasses. It just knocks the ordinary wine glass out of the picture. These ones are affordable and it will always be in style!

  4. Diamond Pens: I feel like every girl needs one of these pens. Its so glam and extra…but I mean isn’t that the best way to live? ha ha! Plus it makes writing things down more fun (in my opinion) Thinking I may need one in rose gold too!

  5. Ban.do Planner: I shared this one on my IG stories a few weeks ago.. and honestly I wasn’t the planner type… in the past I would get one then put it on my desk shelf and forget about it but after finding this planner I am hooked! The fun color scheme, stickers and the design makes it so easy and efficient to write everything down and stay organized. This also comes in a few other fun colors! I also like this design! Add this with a diamond pen and you’re set for the year!

  6. Voluspa Crisp Champagne Candle: I am a huge fan of candles and i have tried dozens. Out of all the ones I have tried I love all Voluspa candles. They last quite a bit and the scents all smell heavenly. Some I have tried don’t last long or the scent is too strong even making my eyes water. But out of all the scents I love the crisp champagne scent. It’s just strong enough but not too intense.

  7. Silk pillow case: I had heard so much about silk pillowcases and the benefits of sleeping on one. I finally got one and it does make a difference on my skin and hair. Plus it just feels so nice to lay your face on a silky smooth pillow!

  8. Eye Gel Mask: I recently started using an eye gel mask and its been ah-mazing. I throw it in the fridge and once its cold I put it on while I’m cooking/cleaning/ doing laundry etc. The cool gel beads feel so relaxing and it helps de-puff your face! Plus these are pretty inexpensive and will last a long time!

  9. Rose Quartz Facial Roller: I talked about this quartz roller before on this post but it is that amazing! I have been using this religiously for a month and can see and feel a difference. It’s also quite calming to facial roll in the evening and it helps blend night cream and or a sleep mask. (I like this night cream and this sleep mask)

  10. A plush blanket: So I am sure you have heard all the rage about barefoot dreams blankets… everyone was talking about them ever since the Kardashians were seen using them. But honestly they are crazy expensive and I did get one on sale but I received this one as a present and I think it is just as good or even better plus it’s just a fraction of the price of a Barefoot Dreams blanket.

That’s all for now!
