International Flight Necessities: Jo's version

I had to think long and hard about what to pack for this trip. And by this trip I am referring to London and Paris. This wasn’t going to be a Fashion Week trip although I did want to maintain some level of style. This was a family trip with much warmer temps than our Chicago.

Mark Your Calendar: Tickled Pink.

Tickled Pink is in partnership with Bright Pink, which is a 401c3 that helps build awareness and early detection for breast cancer.
