hey! Here is a room tour at pod51 hotel in New York City.
We stayed in a Queen room for a weekend and put together our review of the place. The location is the best part! I’ve always wanted to stay in a pod or capsule hotel and this is as close as I can get before doing the international tiny pods.
– stay in Manhattan on a budget
– best for people who are out and about all day
– location in Manhattan is great, a lot of places are walkable from here
– very good service and easy check-in/check-out
– you can sometimes hear people in the hallways
– if you easily feel claustrophobic/are a bigger person you may not like this hotel (we booked this knowing and expecting a small space so we were ok with it)
– the private Queen bathroom has a window has a window that anyone staying in the room can look into
Hey guys! I finally received my Daiso haul that my cousin had to ship over. Sarah and I shopped around in Daiso and Teso and got a bunch of hello kitty items. I also got some travel-related items and more.
Hey! I recently did a 4 day trip with a backpack and here’s how I packed it. I challenged myself to pack everything I needed for the long weekend in my backpack because the airline I flew (JetBlue) changed their basic fare policy to not include carry-ons anymore.
A few years ago, I could never do this. I went to Minneapolis for 2 days, 1 night and could barely fit my stuff into my North Face Borealis Backpack at the time! (I did have to bring a bath towel + shower flip flops.)

If you don’t need a lot of a liquid like skincare, put it in a clean contacts lens case that you don’t need!
Roll your clothes to be able to pack more. Play around with roll sizes and see what works best. Keep the most wrinkle-able items on the outside.
-1 Black sneakers*
-1 Tank top*
-1 Hiking top/crop top
-3 T Shirts
-3 Workout or Lounging Shorts
-1 Jean Shorts
-8 underwear + 2.5 bras
*items worn on the plane
Day 1: Airplane outfit (Sneakers, Sweatshirt, tank top, leggings—change to jean shorts)
Day 2: Hiking outfit (workout top, workout bottoms + maybe jean shorts)
Day 3: Dress
Day 4: Sweatshirt, T Shirt, leggings, sneakers
Luckily I have a backpack with a lot of compartments plus a bottle holder and zipper pocket on the sides which helps a lot!
I understand this was more doable because I was traveling to a warmer area but I might do a 3-day Fall in New York City backpack version where I also flew Jetblue.
My company gave me this backpack when I started my career but I believe this is the model if you are interested as well: https://amzn.to/3BH15TU
