WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE ?

It’s that time again.

God willing, the Sports Diva is going away somewhere for 9 days, so it’s another edition of the post that many of you seem to love a lot.

What’s in my suitcase this time.

There’s going to be a lot of walking, sightseeing , checking out a lot of famous bridges, crossing some things off my bucket list, and because this is a 30 Plus Teams Tour , you just know that a sporting event , or two , is gonna break out.

I might not bring all of this but who knows and yes,my bag is a carryon.

I’m getting creative in my packing.

No baggage fee for me.

(God willing and fingers crossed.)

Can you guess where I’m going this time?

As usual, you’ll have to wait.

In the meantime , enjoy what’s in my suitcase this time.

My new Samantha Brown suitcase from my sister in law.

Two bags that I’m taking. One from the Rainbow Shops and the other one part of the Samantha Brown suitcase collection .

My going to the airport outfit. I may just wear this purple sweater back home with another pair of pants .

Making their first trip, DJ and Tyler

My cape that I’m going to wear. It’s going to be more than warm enough for where I’m going .

I’m just carrying three pairs of shoes this time. I’m going to wear the sneakers cause I’m going to be doing sprint’s through the huge airport that I’m going to be in .

Gotta have something to read besides blogs on my flights. C’mon now, didn’t you expect to see something sports related that the Sports Diva would be reading?

My big ass throw blanket from one of my Vegas Golden Knights peeps. This will more than keep me warm on the flights. This guy happens to be one of my favorite players.

My dress and coat from a thrift shop and Forever 21

Back and front of a dress from thrift store

Shirts, hoodie, purple nightgown , leggings, and tights

Pajamas , unmentionables, other travel stuff

WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE ?

Here we go again, another Autumn season 30 Plus Teams Tour of somewhere for the Sports Diva .

You know what that means.

Another edition of the ever popular what’s in my suitcase .

This time I’m staying, God willing ,for 5 days as it’s the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States .

There may be some sports stuff going on but who knows .

I can say though, that I will be with family members and doing lots of walking and looking around .

Can you guess?

In the meantime , this is what’s in my suitcase.

Serena and Julian will be making an appearance

Boots and sneakers on top of one of my bags that’s on top of my suitcase. It’s gonna be cold and lots of walking .

My suitcase, gloves and bag from Payless

Two other bags and my hat on top of my suitcase.

My going away outfit. Grey pants from Rainbow Shops , blue sweater from a thrift shop , and grey shirt from Uniglo.

My coming home outfit. Sweatshirt from New England Patriots store and sweatpants from my cousin .

Skirt from Telco Store and sweater from a thrift shop

Jacket from a thrift shop and dress from Forever 21.

It’s gonna be cold when I leave New York , so I’m gonna need this coat that my auntie gave me for my birthday last year.

That’s what’s in my suitcase, or at least some of the things.

My packing cubes , which I rave about, are in the suitcase all ready .

Some of these things, I might not wear or carry .

Yes, I maybe carrying two bags because that’s what some of us women do.

Have you guessed where I’m going?

You’ll have to wait for my next post to see if you’re right.

Happy guessing .

WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE ?

It’s time for an Autumn edition of the ever popular what’s in my suitcase .

Now before I go into just what’s going to be going on my 2 1/2 day trip to somewhere, (and as usual, y’all gotta guess where the Sports Diva is going ), let me let you in on a little secret.

Because of my financial situation , up until a week ago, I didn’t know where I was going to go.

That’s right, I was going to take my suitcase and go SOME WHERE with no plans and no place to stay until the day before I was leaving.

Please take it from an experienced traveller like the Sports Diva .

Don’t do that.

Know where you’re going at least up to a month before.

Plan ahead and have all your stuff right and tight!

I finally decided on a place that’s almost in my backyard.

It turned out to be the right place with lots of looking and walking.

Not to mention a lot of sports cause that’s the purpose of a 30 Plus Teams Tour .

My blue backpack, black Kenneth Cole messenger bag and making the trip, my stuffed animals , Julian and DiDi.

Two pairs of sneakers because there’s going to be LOTS of walking and looking around.

Three packing cubes and the “bathroom bag” with all my toiletries inside of it.

My black jacket and outfit for coming back home. Sorry it’s so dark.

My dungarees and red sweater for going back home.

The front and back of the heavy shirt I’m wearing to my 30 Plus Teams Tour . It doesn’t look warm enough, but trust me it is.

There you have it, what’s going to be in my suitcase .

Have you guessed yet where the Sports Diva is going ?

No?

You’ll just have to wait until my next post to see where my next 30 Plus Teams Tour is going to take me.

Happy guessing .

WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE ?

Here we go again.

The Sports Diva is going on another 30 Plus Teams Tour of somewhere .

Y’all know what that means, right ?

It’s another addition of what’s in my suitcase .

Going away for about 4 or maybe 5 days not sure yet.

Not taking a lot of shoes this time.

Just my sneakers for all the walking that I’m going to do.

As this is a 30 Plus Teams Tour , yes there will be a sporting event or two going on so you’re going to see the Sports Diva at her Team Sports Apparel Fashionista best.

It’s starting to get a little cool so a sweater or hoodie or two is going in my bag.

Can you guess where I’m going this time ?

I might not be wearing all of these but over packing is better than under packing .

My bag from the M snd M Store in Las Vegas . My blue Sketchers drawstring bag , my packing cubes, which has made packing oh so much easier , and my black handbag from Payless Stores, which unfortunately , are out of business now.

My outfit for going away . Shirt ftom Atlantic City , pants from the Loft Store in Boston .

Outfit for returning . Pants from my cousin. New England Patriots jersey from Modells Sporting Goods Store in New York City .

Pajamas from a relative , and making the trip my stuffed animals , Gleyber and Aaron

Sorry for the mess, but it’s my blue suitcase , which I never have used believe it or not and my Yankees cap.

Shirts , shirts and more shirts.

More shirts and pants. I’m going to be very casual going to this place.

Have you guessed where I’m going yet ?

You’ll just have to wait for my next post to see if your guess was right.

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.

In the meantime, enjoy this edition of What’s In My Suitcase .

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 .
