One carry-on, 4 days in Manhattan

For any who have traveled with me, they know that I don’t understand the definition of “packing light”.  I pack spare of everything, for “just in case” and “what if” scenarios.  I bring all electronics and appliances too, hair dryer, hair straightener, laptop, ipod, & NDS.  There have been occasions where I bring only x number of outfits for x number of days, but I’ll end up getting a food stain on my shirt that necessitated a outfit change.  Murphy’s Law!  At least in NY…if I need new clothes I can buy more?

DIY Faux Fur Scarf

Since the beginning of the winter season, I’ve been looking for a faux fur scarf since the beginning of the winter season, but no luck.  Most were too expensive.  My solution was removing the fur trim off another jacket and converting it to a scarf, voila!  Well its nothing ground-breaking, but it works!
