WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE?

Once again,the Sports Diva is going away somewhere, and it’s time for the ever popular what’s in my suitcase ?

I’m going away for a few days for some sun and fun with the family.

No sporting event is going to be happening on this 30 Plus Teams Tour but I will still be rocking team sport shirts and hats because that’s just how the Sports Diva rolls .

Where’s the 30 Plus Teams Tour taking me this time?

As usual , you have to guess.

They’ll be sun, fun, lots of water and enough fun to keep three ladies of a certain age very happy and it doesn’t take a year and a day to get there .

Check out what’s in my suitcase as you try to guess where my 30 Plus Teams Tour takes me this time.

My little blue backpack with wheels. My guys Gleyber and Julian are coming along for the craziness .

My black skirt and black top because you know how people here in New York City love wearing dark colors .

Repping my teams because I am that Team Sports Apparel Fashionista .

Two T shirts. One from an ex coworker , the other a Nashville Predators shirt from the NHL Store , flip flops for walking around nasty ass bathroom floors, black pants, and a flowered cover up.

Packing cubes, which I can’t seem to live without now. Red sunglasses , sandals, white pants, two shirts , shorts and my new gift from my auntie , a selfie stick.

This is a quick trip, so no big suitcase.

Have you guessed where my next 30 Plus Teams Tour is taking me?

If you haven’t, you’re going to have to wait to see.

WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE ?

It’s a quick trip but it’s another edition of the ever popular what’s in my suitcase .

I’m only spending almost two days where I’m going but because it’s July 4th , the Sports Diva just has to go somewhere and there’s a baseball game going on.

Can you guess where I’m going this time?

I’m not even bringing a suitcase this time.

One of my pocketbooks works just fine as you can see from the pictures.

Those packing cubes that I used for my trip to Vegas in June will fit everything and not be heavy as you know what .

I don’t know how I went so long without using these packing cubes .

It’s going to be hot and very humid but I’m there to celebrate America’s birthday.

It’s a quick trip but guess where I’m going on my next 30 Plus Teams Tour as you see what’s in my suitcase .

I didn’t get to wear this mini dress in Vegas , but I’m going to wear it now.

My sandals from Rainbow Shops here in Queens and my bag that’s going to hold all of my stuff .

My packing cubes from Marshalls Department Store that I used for my trip to Vegas . They worked so well then, I’m going to use them again .

Also my Sketchers drawstring bag and my stuffed animals Julian and making her first appearance , my little bear, Posh Spice.

Have you guessed where the Sports Diva is going to be spending her July 4th?

You’ll just have to wait and see.

DISCOVERING PACKING CUBES!

Whenever I go on one of my 30 Plus Teams Tours, I usually bring a bag or suitcase that’s as unorganized as all heck.

There’s shoes , underwear, etc all over the suitcase no matter if they’re folded, rolled or usually just thrown in the bag which always happens .

Not this time.

I watch a lot of YouTube videos , which you might not know.

Or maybe you do if you follow 30 Plus Teams 30 Plus Dreams a lot.

As I haven’t been anywhere since February , those travel blues have creeped in and I’ve been watching videos on packing.

I noticed something .

People, and not just female or adult travellers, are packing their clothes in something called “packing cubes.”,which go inside your suitcase.

I had never heard of this and I’ve travelled a lot in my 66 years .

I was going to order them from Amazon , but on a trip to my local Marshalls Department Store, guess what I found?

You got it, packing cubes for my suitcase, even though none of the sales people had a clue what I was talking about.

One saleslady told me , “luggage over in aisle 3”

I guess she missed the part of the conversation where I asked “do you sell packing cubes that fit in your luggage?”

But in aisle 3 not only was there luggage up the wazoo , there were accessories also, which included packing cubes.

It was $9.99 for a pack of 3.

I wanted to see what all the hype was about.

It’s supposed to save space in my suitcase .

It actually does as you can see here.

My bag is a little bit more organized now than it’s ever been .

I wish I’d discovered packing cubes a lot earlier .

WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE ?

Here we go again.

It’s the summer edition of the ever popular , what’s in my suitcase.

Where am I going this time?

As usual, take a guess.

I’m going away for five days this time and yes something that has to do with a sporting event is involved because that’s just how the Sports Diva rolls.

Although, if you’ve followed my blog, you might have an idea of where I’m going and what sporting event I’m going to because I attend this every year .

Anyway here’s some of the old and new stuff that’s going in my suitcase for this 30 Plus Teams Tour .

My going to JFK outfit.

My return outfit.

Nope, I’m not bringing two suitcases, I can’t decide which one. Im not checking in any bags going. Coming back yes. My two sunhats and my Vegas Golden Knights hat.

It’s about my sandals and heels. Yes all three of these shoes plus sneakers for the ride are coming too.

It’s the bags, people . The bag with the elephant is my personal bag that’s going on the plane and yes,all these bags will go into my suitcase .

Shirts to wear to bed. Rarely do pajamas anymore

More shirts, not for bed though. The black shirt at the top says on the front, “I didn’t ask to be Princess” and on the back it says, “But hey if the crown fits . ”

Bathing suits, cover ups and sunglasses

Four dresses. The blue one is a maxi dress.

Pants and shirts

Dressy shirts

Shorts, shorts and even more shorts

Something to hold my toiletries , a black beach bag, packing cubes which I’m trying for the first time, and making their appearance in my suitcase are two of my stuffed animals Julian, looking very spiffy in his red tie ,and Gleyber the panda.

Since I’ve never used packing cubes before, I’m going to give you my review of them when I get everything in my suitcase.

That’s what’s in my suitcase for my 30 Plus Teams Tour .

I might take all of what you see here, I might not.

Anyway, have fun guessing where the Sports Diva is going next

Boots from Midnight Velvet , skirt and pants from my cousin (yes, I’ve got a lot of neices, girl cousins, and great neices who love clothes as much as I do and they don’t donate clothes, it’s more like do you want these?) Black sweatshirt from thrift shop.Shirt from Rainbow Shops .

Pants, pants, and more pants. Sneakers from my cousin and sweatpants once again from that store called, where did I buy these again?

My black shirt from Pittsburgh and red shirt from Las Vegas . It’s all about the bags. Sketchers bag from Sketchers Store. My favorite Boston bag from Primark Store in Boston and three bags, you guessed it , from my cousin .

I’m not going to tell you yet, so you have to wait.

All I can say is, it’s gonna be cold and the sports diva is bundling up.

I’m hoping to cross a couple of things off my bucket list with this tour.

Yes, a sporting event will be happening where I’m going to be, because after all, that’s the purpose of a 30 Plus Teams Tour .

You’re going to see two suitcases not because I’m staying a long time, just 4 days, but because I can’t decide which one to bring.

Enjoy while you try to figure out where the Sports Diva is going this time.

One suitcase with two hats on them. Pink hat from Rainbow Shops and New York Rangers hat from a late co worker of mine.
