Sugar Travels

One of the greatest perks of being a sugar baby is the fact that we get to see all of these amazing sights all over the world! So to help some ladies out who might be preparing for an upcoming trip, or hopefuls who just want to be prepared, here are some tips that I have picked up here and there when I am about to travel to a new place for a vacation.

Pre-Travel Care

  • Whether you are staying in the same room with your SD, or having one of your own self care is very needed.
    • Depending on how long your upcoming adventure is, a little trip to get a wax might be suggested. Whether it’s to tame the kitty, or just to have legs smoother than a baby’s bottom, getting a wax is one less daily hassle to worry about when looking your best.
    • Nails, and hair should be tended to also for a fully polished look. Look at the expected weather during the days of your trip so that you can plan your hair accordingly and don’t end up spending bucks on a beautiful blowout that ends up getting rained out the first night you’re there.
    • Drink plenty of water every day for at least 10 days before your trip for clearer skin.
    • MOISTURIZE! for at least  week

Packing

Checked bags

  • When spending more than two nights, I highly suggest checking a bag. This allows you to have space for gifts and goodies acquired from a shopping trip.
  • Look up the weather for the days you are expecting to be there so that you can get a feel of the clothes to pack for the trip, and cross that with your itinerary plans for the trip.
  • 2.5 Rule- 
    • Pack two and a half outfits per day, to cover any surprise spills or last minute changes. These extra pieces should be versatile shirts and bottoms that can be used with most of your other pieces.
  • Shoes
    • Have at least one pair of heels, and a casual walking shoe.
      • For longer trips add a statement shoe that will pop against any basic outfit (LBD anyone?), a pair of flats and some snazzy sandals so that all shoes can match with at least one outfit, preferably two outfits

Carry on

Personally I like having a carry on, and a backpack/purse

  • In your carry on…
    • Pack a few basics, like clean underwear, a t-shirt and a pair of bottoms. Baggage gets lost sometime, and at least if yours were to get lost, then you at least have a backup outfit to bide some time.
    • Make sure all liquids are under the relegated 3 fl oz limit to save yourself the time at TSA.
    • If you’re traveling on a flight for more than three hours, keep the flashy outfit towards the top of your carry on so that either before you land, or once you do you can quickly make your way to the bathroom to freshen up into a sexier outfit for daddy.
    • A printed copy of your boarding pass
    • Tablet/ Laptop
    • Keep things you won’t need over the trip (like house keys) kept away in a zipped pocket away from hand traffic so you don’t misplace them over the duration of the trip.
  • In your purse…
    • Keep things that are small and more than likely needed over the course of the trip… 
      • Headphones
      • Phone charger
      • Phone
      • A few small ziplock bags
      • Passport/ government ID
      • A magazine/ reading pleasure
      • Spare socks
      • Chapstick/lipstick/lip gloss
      • Empty reusable water bottle
      • And anything else small and important

Getting through security

Personally I think the hardest part about travelling is getting through security

  • Keep your outfit to something simple and comfortable. Stay away from things that a bejeweled, shoes that are hard to get out of and excessive amounts of jewelry.
    • Wear sliders or simple zip boots, and
      • Ie) My outfit of choice is always leggings, a long basic tunic, and ankle boots that slide on and off.
    • Keep your jewelry in one of the ziplock bags in your purse until after you pass TSA.
    • You’re going to be without shoes for a while, so I always have spare socks in my purse, because the thought of my feet touching the airport floor irks me to high levels.
    • Carry an empty reusable water bottle so that you are able to save yourself from getting robbed for $5 water at the airport.
      • Make sure it is empty so that you do not get pulled aside at TSA
    • Headphones with some music playing to keep you in the zone, but not too loud so you can stay updated as the lines move, and for whatever updates come from the officers are over the speakers.

Once you’ve past security it is smooth sailing from there. Check in with the important people, grab a bite to eat, if you’re above age find a bar and stay near your gate until it is time for your to board for your adventure.

Hope you enjoyed my tips! What are your sugar travel tips?

Greatest Creation

A/N: you know those awesome head massager things like a handle with a bunch of wires with little ball/beads on the end and it feels amazing on your head???!? here’s Dean and Cas messing around with one because they rock.

EDIT: you know, this thing. vv

Cas did not recognize the strange object that Dean pulled out of his bag, a huge grin on his face.

“What is that?”

“A head massager.” Dean hurried up next to him.

“I didn’t realize you could massage your head.” He blinked.

Dean ordered, “Sit.”

Cas obliged, taking a seat on the edge of the bed.

“Close your eyes.” Cas had no reason not to trust him, though the grin on Dean’s face made Cas a bit nervous. He closed them after a moment of internal debate.

Something slid gently across his scalp, combing through the hair. Ten, maybe twelve little balls attached to longer wires moved up and down, circling his head and giving him chills down his back. His mouth even dropped open a bit.

“Like that?” Dean smirked.

“This is the greatest innovation of man.” Castiel replied, his toes curling. The feeling this invention created was like a physical dose of bliss.

PIZZA CAPRICCIOSA & TASTING ROME.

Holy pizza, Batman, I’m in Rome!!! You guys! I’m so excited. I barely have words for the melange of anticipation and thrill and fear and wonder and gratitude I’ve been feeling for the past week. I haven’t been to Europe for eleven years, and now, in the sweetest stroke of mileage plus points and belated birthday gifts to myself, here I am. Rome for three nights. Positano for four nights. Vacation email responder officially on. Pre-vacation gauntlet narrowly maneuvered. I am so, so ready.

In the spirit of keeping myself as awake and sensorially absorbent, a few promises: I promise to take one million pictures and show you only the very best ones. I promise to eat as much pizza and pasta as humanly possible. I promise to slow way, way down and breathe in the scent of the streets and the ruins and the art and the people. I promise to let Italy change me. I promise just to be.

And, for the sake of practicality, I thought I’d detail a few of the things on my international travel packing list, in the case that you might also be heading on a trip sometime soon.

One of your commentator's actually made the comment that Kaneko couldn't be gay because he directed pinku in the 80s. What a stupid ass, ignorant comment. Also, Kaneko's break-out film pre-GOTU was Summer Vacation 1999 which is one of the seminal queer films.

Just got home from work.
I feel like whenever I go away on a trip, anything and everything that could be done for my job absolutely needs to be completed before I leave. & not by choice! The universe just wants to pile it all on. Don’t get me wrong, I love tying up loose ends before I travel, just in case I never make it back home i.e. die. But this work stuff could wait!

Oh well, at least I got pizza & beer out of it.

Early, Pre-Vacation Sunday Progress Update:

I went and got my butt kicked tonight at the gym, and I’m feeling ready to enjoy the beach this weekend. I AM bringing my running shoes just in case the morning beach breeze makes temperatures bearable, though…or I may go to the hotel gym. It’s unlikely that I’ll reallllly be a sloth the whole time. But, I’m not going to hold any missing check marks against myself. So, early update. Not too shabby. 😊

I’m really going to miss the husband, but it’ll be a nice weekend with my family and Conner is dying to hang out on the beach. I hope he finds a friend to hang out with, though. He’s been really into talking about cars lately. 😩 Feigning interest in a subject I could not possibly care less about is very taxing after a while. Cross your fingers for me. 😉 I know, I know, he’s a teenager. I should be happy he wants to talk to me…but cars (his other top choices are motorcycles and reptiles…😳🔫)?!?!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
