Top Five Travel Accessories Every Girlfriend Needs

Top Five Travel Accessories Every Girlfriend Needs

5 travel accessories every girlfriend needsI travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine.  ~Caskie Stinnett

Planning a girlfriend trip anytime soon? Do you make a list of things to take, or do you just throw everything in a suitcase and know that somehow or other it will all work out?

Travel writer and guest blogger NOELLA SCHINK shares some of her favorite things for women travelers to take on a trip.

There is a list a mile long of the places my best friend and I have left to go in this world, but we’ve been lucky enough to get out and travel a bit so far. As a practical lady who grew up in Maine, you’ll find my tips are always budget conscious (though my girlfriend always lets me know when an item is worth a splurge!) and frill-free, yet still stylish enough to take across the globe.

Smartwool Slippers

Merino woolI like these cozy slippers for travel because they are light, they never get smelly, and the Merino wool feels so lovely and luxurious on my tootsies. This rare wool also wicks away moisture so your toes will never get clammy. Not only are they an in-cabin flight staple, but they are also indispensable for hotel bathrooms and scuffing down the hallway to the vending machine for a bag of Fritos at 1am. Not that we would ever do that. The Fritter Free Heel is a clog style with an indoor-only felt sole, or you could opt for the Morning Ballet which doubles as an achingly cute flat that can be worn from airport to hotel check-in. My friend was so green with envy when she saw me slip a pair of these on in flight she immediately ordered her own pair!pashmina scarf, purple blanket

Pashmina

This is one accessory where the adage “you get what you pay for” truly applies. You can find a knock off, poly-blend wannabe for under twenty bucks at the mall kiosk, but once you feel the luxury and warmth of a real Pashmina shawl, you’ll never go back. I recommend a Pashmina/silk blend for maximum softness and sheen. If you treat yourself to one of these in a versatile color, it can triple as a scarf, plane blankie, and demure shawl when you are out for a nice night on the town or perhaps whilst on a breezy beach treating yourself to the sunset. The real ones will be made with wool from Nepal or Turkey.

Mini Farouk Chi

As I said before, I’m usually quite low maintenance (as well as low tech), but this travel-sized flat iron has come in handy so many times that I can’t leave it off the list. You know your hotel will have a hair dryer, but it will be so cheap/inadequate that you’ll need a styling tool to help you out. I know that one of the biggest treats about travel for me is the chance to hair straightener travel size“go out” in an exotic city. And though I might be wearing week old jeans and my swimsuit for a bra, I still want to look nice. I travel with my best girl friend, and we are far past the point of impressing each other with shaved legs and high heels, so we get glam in other ways. This versatile, packable tool heats to 392 degrees in about a minute and has top-notch ceramic plates that will smooth even my frizzy waves in a single pass. Even though the handle is wee, the plates are full size, so you are getting the complete Chi styling experience at about half the price and weight!

L.L Bean Medium Personal Organizer

It couldn’t get more “Mainer from Maine” than L.L Bean, but you’ll have to admit we are ontotoiletries,organizersomething up here when you check out this toiletries bag. I have looked high and low for a more sensible, sturdy bag, but nothing compares. This pouch has multiple compartments so your mini bottles don’t get jostled around, a hook, removable mirror, and even side pockets for easy access to your regulation quart baggie of liquids as you ease through airport security. As if it could get any more practical, it’s even made of material that’s easily wiped clean if your toothpaste should unfortunately explode mid-trip (definitely has happened to my friend!).

Lucky Brand Abbey Road Crossbodycross body bag

A definite indulgence, this bag is worth it because it’s made of baby-soft leather, it looks ever-so-chic, and will last for years. The utilitarian side of me loves it because it’s so well made, roomy, and (there’s that word again) practical. The fashionista inside me covets it for the classic look, and the leather that is seriously so soft. Every woman needs a crossbody bag for travel because it’s a hands free style, it’s more secure to your body (and therefore a pickpocket deterrent), and it will fit an in-flight magazine, spontaneously purchased souvenirs, a camera, and every other necessity women need to have with them at all times, even halfway around the world (do you really need to lug your spare glasses, hand lotion, phone charger, hair brush, and five lipsticks around Prague? No. Will you anyway? Yes). You obviously need this bag. If you are the luckiest girl in the world like me, your best friend will get it for you for your birthday, otherwise, get it for yourself—you’re worth it!

Be a Better Friend to a Friend during Pet Loss

Be a Better Friend to a Friend during Pet Loss

How to be a friend when a girlfriend has lost a pet

We’ve covered how to be a better friend when a friend loses a parent or is dealing with cancer, but what about how to be a better friend with a girlfriend loses her beloved pup?

My BFF Terri (who is so thoughtful and sweet that she inspired this Girlfriendology blog) had a terrible tragedy over the weekend. She and her husband had to put their sweet, funny ‘puppy’ Monty to sleep. He had been dealing with seizures and medical issues for a while, but they’ve been patiently and thoroughly exploring all the options – yet the time came when there was nothing else to do.

As a woman who still misses our dog Stella (who we had to put down almost three years ago and still makes me tear up), I understand her pain and sorrow. (And, I cannot imagine the loss that a mother feels when losing a child or dealing with serious illnesses or disabilities in one’s own ‘flesh and blood.’ I cannot imagine.)

But the loss of a pet that was loved, that brought laughter and joy everywhere it went, that taught and practiced unconditional love and that made coming home always joyful (and, in this case, also gave great ‘kisses’!), is a sadness you experience to the depths of your spirit. (How could you NOT love a pup as cute as Monty above?!)

Thankfully we have our girlfriends to turn to in this situation, as we always do – thankfully! We asked you for your girlfriend advice on how to be a better friend to a girlfriend who just lost a pet and you responded (on our Facebook girlfriend page) with this great wisdom:

* April wisely shared: “Well, to me my pets are like my babies…so, losing one of them would be as bad as one of my children…this could be as bad to her … just be there for her.”

* Laurie, sadly, has experience and offered: “I had to put my dog AND my cat to sleep all within 2 weeks; I say to just listen when she wants to talk about him and frequently ask how she is doing.”

* Girlfriend Jeanne said: “I would praise her for doing the most difficult, but kindest thing a dog owner can do for their loyal companion. It is the sad contract we sign when we bring them into our lives and hearts…. but such joy they bring!” (I agree!)

* Laura commented: “I would just let her know that you are there for her when she needs something.”

* Rahjenna shared lots of great girlfriend advice: “Give her a soft shoulder to cry on and an open ear to listen. Then help her to be gentle and kind to herself. Anything comforting is wonderful – run her a hot bath with pretty smelling salts, make her chamomile tea, light some candles for her. Give her a foot massage with her favorite lotion, or even just a neck and back massage. Bake her some chocolate chip cookies or her favorite and eat them with some cold milk. Rent a comedy (like the Forty Year Old Virgin) and spend some quality time with her. Buy her a good book or a journal to write in to help her heal. And last but not least … when she is ready, do a ceremony for closure. Light candles and set up pictures of her beloved and express and acknowledge how much unconditional love her pet gave to her. Loosing a pet IS like loosing a child, and needs to be treated like such, because it hurts so very bad….I hope this helps some..”

* Sherry shared: “Let her know you are there for her if she needs to talk.”

* Lynne offered her girlfriend advice: “Just give space and time for her to talk – talk some more – sit and be silent and talk some more. She is grieving and it will take some time. I lost my Dog within 6 months of my Mom’s passing and what I remember most is the people who just sat with me. Nothing special – just those that were there and I didn’t feel alone in my thoughts. As well, … nobody tried to make it better. I remember someone told me that my Dog was well loved and everything I did or didn’t do for her was out of love and I felt so much better hearing that.”

* Linda has been there too and shared: “Just letting her know you care, try to talk to her about the good times she had with her, and how she enriched her life. Just the fact that someone listens and truly cares how sad you are meant a lot to me.”

* Pamela also has dealt with this feeling of loss and sadness. She commented: “There really is not much you can say, if you are truly BFF’s, then a hug and words like “I feel your sadness” if you do. If not, a hug and “If you need me I am here for you.” It is a death not unlike a humans, she will need time to get through all the emotions and the ups and downs. My beloved died eight years ago and I still think of her and miss her to this day. Say something like ” You gave her the best life and she loved you for it.”

* Neighbor and girlfriend Jenny (who has a cute pup named ‘Easter’!) offered this great girlfriend advice: “cry with her & make a donation in the pet’s memory to SPCA or Humane Society or a vet school. (I always make donations to Purdue’s vet school)! & look at lots of pics! :)”

* Someone else I’m proud to call my BFF, Jill, shared this (and did this for me when Stella died – I love it and it’s still in my office and kitchen!): “Make them a picture of their dog as an angel.”

* Cheryl shared: “There are never easy words for loss. What can we do: love them unconditionally, let them know they are not alone, make sure they eat, feel supported, allow them to talk and cry and talk and cry, share memories, let them know that they are not going crazy – that this loss is very real indeed. Platitudes like -things will get better – don’t work here. We grieve as deeply as we love, is a key piece here. It hurts like heck and that’s okay – we need to feel the grief and all the stages to heal.”

* Stacey recommends: “Great book called Dog Heaven. A friend gave it to me.” (There’s also Cat Heaven too!) & Dee seconds that!

* Girlfriend Gretchen can relate and shared this: “Try Good Grief: Finding Peace after Pet Loss by Sid Korpi (On Facebook too). Minneapolis author – has some nice stuff in it. Just be there for your friends – it is hard – ever so hard. It has been a year and I still miss my girl something terrible.”

Thanks so much girlfriends for sharing!

Terri, so many of us feel your pain. I loved what Cheryl said above: “We grieve as deeply as we love.” Monty was a lucky dog to be so loved! Know I’m here for you, as your girlfriends are too. HUGS!

Who NOT to set a place for this Thanksgiving / Insights from a BFF Conversation

Who NOT to set a place for this Thanksgiving / Insights from a BFF Conversation

Be thankful for what you have Thanksgiving Oprah quote“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.”

Oprah Winfrey

It wasn’t meant to be a Thanksgiving conversation between girlfriends. It was a ‘mayday’ kind-of call where one friend was having a rough time and the other was too, actually.

The two friends were me and one of my very special BFFs, we’ll call her ‘Callie.’

Callie and I have both been through some pretty radical changes in our lives the past few years. We’ve experienced huge changes in our lives, seen the people around our Thanksgiving table come and go. Traditions that we’ve had for decades have ended and, to be honest, that has been stressful and sad.

In the midst of a teary conversation, it hit me. It was a Thanksgiving conversation. Not the time, but the sentiment. The solution was very similar to the Oprah quote above – we need to focus on what we have, not what we don’t (or used to). We’re both healthy, happy, strong, smart women. We have amazing people in our lives who love us. We each have very satisfying careers. If we focus on what we have, and not what don’t, we are blessed beyond measure.

So, who do we NOT set a place for at our Thanksgiving table? Don’t make room for regret, for all the old memories. Don’t allow the past to shape our future. Remind yourself, or a friend, to focus on what we HAVE not what we don’t.

And be THANKFUL girlfriend! We have each other. We are blessed beyond measure. Happy Thanksgiving Friend!

(& thanks Callie for being the friend I needed to share this conversation with. When we raise a glass of wine together today, in a house full of friends, I will be especially grateful that you’re my BFF!)

It’s Thanksgiving – Show some Girlfriend Gratitude

It’s Thanksgiving – Show some Girlfriend Gratitude

ThanksgivingCall me ‘old-fashioned,’ but I remind people to say ‘Please.’ (And welcome the reminder myself if needed.) I prefer ‘You’re welcome‘ or ‘It is my pleasure,’ to ‘no problem’ when I say ‘Thank you.’ (Don’t even get me started on that one!) And, when I sneeze, I love when even strangers respond with ‘Bless you,’ not ‘Gesundheit.’ These are just common courtesies that show respect and politeness.

At Thanksgiving, we have an opportunity to show this respect and appreciation through saying ‘Thank You’ in all kinds of ways to all the people who bless our lives.
From our partners who may put up with our bad days and funny habits (or lack of cooking skills), to our neighbors who bring in our trash cans when we’re out of town or loan us ladders or tools, to our favorite mail-person who always says ‘Hi’ and makes sure we have the correct mail, to the teacher who took a special interest in our child – we are surrounded by opportunities to show our appreciation and admiration.

Always something to be thankful forThe one category of appreciation recipient that is often overlooked is our friends. We can take their kindness and support for granted. We recognize when strangers go out of their way for us, but may not notice the thoughtfulness of a friend who shares her perennials with you (thanks, Laura!), or buys your dinner for your birthday and gives you a gift she made for you (love you Barb!), or who takes care of your dog when you’re traveling (thanks Jill and Barney-the-dog). No official ‘Thank You’ card is sent when girlfriends put in a good word for you (thanks, Joan!), make you laugh on a day when you really needed to (you know who you are girlfriends and book club!) or make your day just by sending a friendly tweet or email (Terri rocks!).

It’s Thanksgiving. Let’s give thanks.

Let’s show and tell the wonderful women in our life how much their friendship means to us. Let’s voice our appreciation and girlfriend gratitude. And, let’s make a commitment to do it all year round.

To get you started on this Thanksgiving (and these work throughout the year too!), here are some ideas for showing your girlfriend gratitude (and PLEASE add your own to inspire others!):

  • On the Road Kit – Is your girlfriend traveling over the holidays? Show her your appreciation for her friendship mile-after-mile-after-mile with a fun box or basket filled with her favorite treats, snacks, magazines, etc. Make her a CD of her favorite songs. Sneak in a note about how your friendship is there for her no matter where she may roam.
  • Welcome Home Surprise – I got this idea from Jen and Mindy who we wrote about on Girlfriendology. Find out when she’ll be back from her travels and have a cooler of food waiting for her. In Jen and Mindy’s case, it was filled with breakfast treats and juices so the first morning back was wonderful and welcoming. Everyone loves surprises so make her day when she’s tired from traveling home.
  • Hectic Holiday Help – Is there anything you can do for her to make her life easier? Can you show your girlfriend gratitude by the offer to help her prepare for the big meal or give her a gift certificate for you to assist with the upcoming holiday wrapping? Can you commit to dropping off dinner once per week through the holidays or offer to watch her children while she goes out running errands and Christmas shopping? She blessed your life with her friendship. How can you show your appreciation and friendship?
  • Make Time for Her – Don’t neglect your friendship due to the wild, wacky holidays. Plan time together and make it a priority. Start by making sure she has a place to go for Thanksgiving or invite her to walk, shop or hang out with you over the long weekend. Meet her for coffee or a glass of wine and have those girlfriend conversations that you need to share. Show her, with your time and actions, how much her friendship means to you.
  • Wonderful Words – We think our friends just ‘know‘ how much they mean to us, right? They may, or they may not. Either way, we all love to hear kind words from a friend so … send her a card, write her a note and leave it on her car, drop off some moms with a message of appreciation – show and TELL her why her friendship is so important to you. Express your girlfriend gratitude. Share what things you love about her friendship and about her. Take a moment to really communicate how much you appreciate her and her friendship.
