Pre-Honeymoon Home Checklist

Pre-Honeymoon Home Checklist

Rushing to the airport from your wedding (or even the next morning) may sound a bit frantic, but in reality it can be incredibly romantic… if you plan ahead!

Pop down and check out what you need to have prepared, packed and ready to be honeymoon-ready post-nuptials!

Pets/Plants/Mail/Trash

If you do nothing else to prepare your home, do these four things.  Reach out to friends and family 2-3 months before your honeymoon to see if anyone would be willing to care for Snuggles and Sir Cattington while you are away.  If not, check into reputable pet sitters in your area.

Making sure that plants were well-watered instead of withered when you got home from the airport used to be a huge pain, but I recently used these super-affordable and easy plant watering globes while away for 2 weeks, and they worked like a charm!  

Stacks of mail outside your door and week-old trash inside your kitchen can both attract unwanted visitors.  Steer clear by placing a hold on your mail (thanks US Postal Service!) and doing a sweep of your home to make sure all trash cans are emptied.

How to Stay (Emotionally, Spiritually & Physically) Healthy While Traveling

Hey you traveling lovelies!  Is it just me or has there been a lot of "how to stay healthy when on the road" type content flying about?

Most of this content, though, has been solely focused on how to stay physically healthy whilst hopping the globe.  That's great and all, but what about everything else?  

If you're more into the holistic side of things, pop down below to find out the best ways to keep your whole, beautiful self in tact and happy when you're on the road.  

Your whole, beautiful self will thank you.  Promise.
