As I’m sure you know by now, I have spent much time overseas the past year, as I participated in my university’s study-abroad program in Florence, Italy. It is no secret that it was hands down the best experience of my life, so therefore, I have made it a priority to convince to convince other students to study abroad as well, so they too can have life-changing experiences. The following post has to do with every college kid’s favorite “F word”: FREE! One follower will be selected to receive Alexandra’s Study-Abroad Bundle. The following products are items that you might not think to pack right away, but TRUST ME, you will be glad you have them. Cute pictures and stuff from friends are fabulous as going-away gifts, but the products I am providing in my bundle are ones you will thank me for. Let’s get started:
Because electronics are everyday items. This adapter converts a US plug into a European plug, as well as a British plug, Australian, and Asian. Very nifty. Don’t lose it haha.
2. Coin Purse: Europeans love their coins! And you will use them way more than you think you will.
4. Luggage tag: In a bold color, for obvious reasons: you want to know which suitcase is yours. I would recommend writing your abroad address AND your US address on the tag just to be safe. Because I’ll be honest, many European airlines don’t give your luggage as much care as you would like, so not to scare you, but losing luggage is very common. Especially returning home when you will most likely have more baggage
5. Blanket: Perfect for flights and bus trips like SmartTrip. Honestly, if you don’t have a blanket on a 14-hour bus ride, you will be very sorry.
7. The Laundress Laundry Kit: same concept: laundry soap is not the same. This bar from The Laundress will last you a very long time and it is perfect for travel. The Laundress Delicate spray is also good for refreshing because yes, if you take a weekend trip, you will most likely wear the same jeans or leggings 3 days in a row. This spray is perfect for those trips.
8. TokyoMilk Travel Candle: seems like a random item, but I loved having a TokyoMilk travel candle. They have Yankee Candle in Europe but it is more expensive. However, some stores in Europe such as Coin sell Yankee Candles and have scents that are not available in the US! (Champaca Blossom was my Italian favorite)
9. Passport Holder: Often times, your school will collect your passports. With this little sleeve, it makes it easy to identify your passport, and not to mention the fact that it is cute.
11. Ruler: before you laugh at this item, ask yourself: do I know the metric system?
There you have it, the wonderful list that will be offered in my give-away. One winner will win my giveaway, and here’s how you are entered:
