5 Things To Hate About Transfer Flights

So I had the recent joy of taking an international transfer flight alone and boy was it a trip… If you're like me and kinda stress over a perfect flight, you've probably done this when prepping for the journey.

1. Booking the damn flight

Finding out that there is no direct flight to your destination, or taking multiple flights is cheaper could be so damn frustrating. Once you have mentally prepared yourself to your fate, you start looking at all the flights, their arrivals, departures, the amount of time you could spare if one of the flights was not on time.

You know... The fun stuff.

2. Cross referencing the flight details

After you pick the flights that would ensure you actually reach your destination. The next step is looking into baggage limits and transfer services. You also might start obsessively chart a few similar flights a few days ahead of your flight. Oh No, that's just me? Oh well, moving on.

3. The reminders to check in all the way through

One thing I definitely fear is not being able to board my flight mid journey cause I couldn't check in all the way through. Hence the incessant reminders that begin 2 days before travel start date.

The reminder to check in at the counter and to make sure my luggage is checked in all the way through.

4. Grabbing your luggage if it’s not the same airline

If you're not traveling via the same airline for the entire trip, you have to vigilant and pick up your luggage when you arrive in transit and re-check it... Oh, Fun!

This is another nightmare of itself that I cannot begin.

5. Hoping your baggage makes way to your destination…

Once you finally reach your destination, you now have to wait uneasily at the luggage carousel praying your luggage actually made it through and you can be off your merry way. If not you wait till the last bag sign and look around in a panic for 10 minutes, give up on your bad luck and trot off to baggage services to file a complaint.

Once all this is over you have to repeat if this was a holiday trip… sigh

Happy Travels Weary Travel.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.

150

All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

42509

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
