Contents of My Carry On Luggage!

July 4, 2017
I'm headed to New York City today, filled with MAJOR excitement about the connection, collaboration & creative vibes I'll inevitably be exposed to while there 
.
To ensure I arrive in tip top shape, here's what I'm taking on-board (from L to R):
.
✨ @matchaful - much nicer to your adrenal glands than caffeine. This brand of matcha tea is one of my favs.
.
✨ @maulirituals herbal 'surrender infusion' tea. Drinking this helps me feel calm & relaxed. It also has the most blissful aroma & delicious flavour.
.
✨ @naissancetrading organic spearmint essential oil. Aside from masking potentially funky smells mid-flight  this oil helps keep me feel so refreshed.
.
✨ @naissancetrading organic 'cacay' oil. Packed with loads of goodness to keep skin happily nourished, it's my anti-aging, hydrating oil of choice.
.
✨ @gabbybernstein's 'Add More -ing to Your Life'. Opening any of my fav @hayhouseinc @hayhouseuk books gives me MAJOR butterflies - in 2018, I will publish my first Hay House book (and am working on book 2 right now!)
.
✨My homemade hydrating lip balm 
.
✨A batch of my latest bliss balls to eat post-flight. I don't eat food while flying, the quality is poor + your gut is placed under so much extra stress in the air which makes optimal digestion near impossible - especially if you've got a compromised microbiome (leaky gut, IBS, etc).
.
✨NYC adventure cards from one of my BFFs who knows how much I  exploring the New York!
.
✨A few of my fav crystals from Australia. Wherever I roam, I always take a little piece of Oz with me.
.
✨ @superfeast Astragalus Root. I mix this herbal tonic powder into my teas & water to supercharge my immune system. After years of use, I'm convinced it helps me to arrive at my destination with no jet lag & tonnes of energy!
.
✨ @jarrkombucha - to enjoy on the way to the airport. Like the gut, your immune system is also put under extra pressure when flying, so I always supercharge my gut with the most potent probiotics possible before boarding 
.
✨A positive attitude! Since almost losing my life in 2014, I approach every day with a childlike sense of wonder - always determined to have the best day ever...and y'know what? I always do!
