Travel To BlogHer: 6 Must Have Products



Sponsored post: This post is sponsored by Dramamine® but the content and opinions here are my own.




Planning your travel for BlogHer can bring on so many mixed emotions; besides making sure the kiddos are all set and let's not forget what you're actually going to wear. The super excitement of seeing your blogger friends can be a little overwhelming. Plus, figuring your traveling needs/wants can be a daunting task, whether you're traveling by car, plane or train. Today I'm sharing six must-have products to bring with you during your travels to BlogHer to ensure that you have an amazing experience.

1. Comfortable Shoes

Invest in a pair of comfortable portable flats. While traveling, I prefer to look stylish, yet comfortable. However, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is traveling to a conference and realizing those cute flats that you have are super uncomfortable. Invest in a pair of flats that are made for traveling and have great reviews.

2. Reusable Water Bottle

I try to bring an reusable water bottle with me everywhere. Especially while traveling and attending blogger conferences. Of course, if you're traveling by plane, your water bottle would be empty prior to going through security and then you can refill your bottle prior to boarding your flight. If you're traveling by train or car, you can easily refill your bottle while on the go. Trust me, this sounds super simple but this tip is going to come in handy while you're attending the actual conference as well.

3. Portable charger

Seeing how we pretty much live off of social media as a blogger, having a portable charger and extra charger cords are really important. Nothing is more heartbreaking than to plug your phone in the outlet on an airplane or car and the charger cord doesn't work. I get it, I've been there. You went from all excited to get some work done and/or to do some social media engaging and your phone is about to die. To avoid this from happening, purchase an extra cord and portable charger in advance. No, having both is not excessive. I go through a lot of charger cords in my home so at some point it will come in handy if I don't end up using it. Plus, if you're not next to a charger port you have your portable charger to hold you over until you're next to one.


4. Business cards

As a business owner business cards are something you should never leave home without. A lot of bloggers forget about the face-to-face interactions that they have while traveling to the conference; you never know who you will meet in your travels. I always keep my business cards in my essential bag to ensure that I always have them in arms reach. You're not the only one traveling to this conference and you have the potential of meeting brands and other bloggers during your travels. I also like to keep my business card in my luggage tag as well.


5. External hard drive and extra SD disk

As a blogger, we rely on the content that we create. While traveling, we spend most of our time creating content and taking pictures. It's very important to back up whatever is saved on our phone and computers and what better time to do that than while traveling. I always bring with me my external hard drive and an extra SD disk. They always come in handy and you want to be over prepared and not under prepared. Trust me, there is  nothing worse than blogging while in route to your destination and you see an error message that the disk or your phone is full. Don't let all of that amazing content go to waste. Also, let's not think about the possibility of actually losing or breaking your phone during your travels.

6.  Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals

There’s nothing worse than traveling and you have motion sickness or to make matters worse you're traveling with the kiddos and they have carsickness. You're on the road and you have 50 miles until your next rest stop and it starts to happen. Don't let this be you. Trust me, it's the worse feeling EVER. I suffer from motion sickness so I know exactly how this feels. I always carry Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals with me in close proximity. I like to carry it with me in my purse. You never know when you might need it. Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals is the perfect essential to help with your future travel plans, especially while attending BlogHer'17. I’m planning to fly, so I know I will pack the Dramamine in my carry on!

I experienced travel sickness while on my last vacation. I wasn't prepared because I rushed and packed my bag. I wasn't ready and all I wanted to do was leave where I was for a motion sickness remedy. Now, I don't leave home without a bottle. Dramamine® is America's number one over-the-counter brand for prevention and treatment of motion sickness. The small bottle can conveniently fit in my pocket or purse.



As you embark on your 2017 summer adventures, whether you're traveling by plane, train or boat, know that with Dramamine®Non-Drowsy Naturals, you don't have to live with the consistent fear of getting motion sickness.

Dramamine® is offering an exclusive coupon offer here for all of my amazing readers. Don't forget to stay connected with Dramamine® on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

  27. Thankfully I only get motion sickness if I am in the backseat and since I started driving I haven't been in the back seat for years. I used to try to focus on the horizon because someone told me that would help but it never really did.

  104. I have suffered from motion sickness since childhood. Our first family dude ranch trip when I was five resulted in me puking my brains out upon arrival, it was the longest car ride ever. Mom bought Dramamine for the return trip and that's what I have used exclusively ever since. I have one in all my travel bags/luggage now. When I go whale watching I take one well before departure, as I have gotten older I am better during car rides and bus trips, but choppy waters in boats still set off my motion sickness something fierce!!!
