Chicago was voted "Best Big City" in the USA for a historic sixth consecutive year by the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2022!

 

If you haven't been to Chicago yet, now is really the time to visit!

We've created one of our must-save pocket guides for you, in which we reveal 6 must-do experiences in Chicago (also Free)

 Garfield Park Conservatory

A fashionably stunning space with stunning glass and domes where the air is clean thanks to thousands of jewel-toned plant specimens filtering toxins throughout.

 The Morton Arboretum

Located about 30 minutes west of downtown Chicago, the Morton Arboretum offers Art installations dedicated to the natural sciences.

 Art on theMART

In the center of Chicago's coveted River North neighborhood is the world's largest permanent digital art projection.
This is a  free, self-guided public art experience not to be missed. 

 Lincoln Park Zoo

Located in the heart of Chicago's Lincoln Park, this zoo offers free, family-friendly entertainment. 

 Bloomingdale Trail (The 606)

Bloomingdale Trail—a.k.a. The 606—is a nearly three-mile, elevated greenway running west and east on the city’s North Side. 

During fairer weather, the trail also hosts various free events for families with young children.

 Ping Tom Memorial Park

It’s just blocks away from Chinatown Square—Ping Tom Park is a special place!
With its pagoda-style pavilion and bamboo gardens, the park is inviting to relaxing strolls, leisurely biking and roller-skating, and small gatherings along the river. 

 

Regardless of where your travel takes you or how you get to your destination, the Safe Travels Kit hopes to accompany you — on the road, on the rails, or in the sky.

 

 

Our first-to-market antimicrobial and hypoallergenic travel and airline bedding kits include an ultra-soft seat cover that fits both economy and business seats and a pillow cover packed into a parachute washable packing cube, all to ensure a cleaner, more comfortable journey. Kits can also be personalized by adding monogram with luxe stitching of up to three letters on on your pillow case. Sets are also washable up to 100x!

SLEEP WELL EVEN AT 35,000 FEET!

SLEEP WELL EVEN AT 35,000 FEET!

EVER ENVIOUS OF THOSE WHO SEEM TO FALL ASLEEP SO EASILY WHEN FLYING? 

During a flight, some people sleep the whole time and some people...just can't sleep a wink!


If you, too, have trouble sleeping on a long-haul trip, don't worry...follow our team's tips for sleeping and resting even at 35,000 feet!

 

A cup of tea

 

Although a glass of red wine gives an inevitable sleep, there is nothing more wrong than drinking alcohol during a plane ride.

Hydration is important for the whole body and also for sleeping well!

Prefer a relaxing hot brew!

 

Choose your Seat

When booking your seat, think of the plane as your bed and consider changing your seat to the same side on which you sleep.

Relaxing sounds

Before sleeping instead of watching a movie or listening to music, download an app that plays white noise or soothing sounds such as that of the sea or rain.

 

Turn your seat into a comfortable bed

For some people, sleeping in a place other than their own bed is really difficult!
If we then stop to think about how many people have used that seat before us and whether our airline will really have cleaned the plane before the trip...sleep turns into a nightmare!

Fortunately, today there is Safe Travels Kit, the first travel sheet set that upgrades your seat!


In fact, our airline linen set includes a universal seat cover and pillowcase made of a luxurious, innovative material that is antibacterial, hypoallergenic ultra soft AND, helps prevent the spread of bed-bugs (yes, we know completely gross- but inevitable on flights at times!

You can have a peaceful sleep without worrying about germs, bacteria, allergens (and pests) and rest as if you were in the bed of a five-star hotel Now, would you ever sleep in a hotel room without provided linens? NO!!! Somehow we do and are expected to on flights! 

And on the way back? 
Don't worry! No need to wash your sheet because our fabric is NON GERM BINDING, designed to handle multiple trips

 Now, relax, sit back, catch some zzzz's  and Safe Travels!

Long-Haul Flight: Tips and Carry-On Essentials

Long-Haul Flight: Tips and Carry-On Essentials

Every serial traveler is perfectly organized before taking a trip, but when it comes to dealing with long-haul flights, organization is even more important.

In this blog post, our team shares some tips, carry-on essentials and "must haves" for surviving long-haul travel and flying as comfortable as if you were in a 5-star hotel: 

1.) Wear your most comfortable outfit

When it comes to long-distance travel, stick to a “comfy-chic” dress code of neutral, loose-fitting layers you can move around in. Don't forget packing a sweater as cabins can get chilly!! 

A must for ladies? Your favorite scarf, a stylish accessory and extra layer for beating cabin chills.

 

2.) Use a good travel pillowcase

For long-distance travel, a pillow is always provided but, but in any " class" we can't necessarily ensure they are crisp and clean. And as we know bacteria can survive up to 180 hours on airplanes, why not bring your own!? 

Take Safetravelskit soft-touch, anti-microbial, hypoallergenic and antibacterial travel pillowcase with you.

You'll rest better, rid of that ick and safe from germs and bacteria.

That means: protect skin from unwanted allergens. Do you have sensitive skin or suffer from acne? Travel comfy and clean adding a layer of cleanliness, without the immediate rush to wash your hair upon landing! 

 3.) Pack your own headphones

For listening to music or perhaps enjoying a good movie, the headphones provided are not the best;

Thanks to those roaring engines and crying toddlers (we love babies!!) in the next row, you can't void out the noise. 

The solution is to bring your own headphones that are even more comfortable than the ones provided!

 4.) Less makeup, more moisturize

Make-up can clog pores and at 30,000, cabin air pressure makes skin dry, brittle  and dehydrated.

Apply a good moisturizer and serum before and during the flight to ensure you stay hydrated throughout the trip!

Also, don't forget an eye drop to combat dry eyes and, of course, a rich lip balm as well.

Hydrate your skin from the inside, too and remember to drink plenty of water during the flight.

Our favorite products chosen for you are:

Lip balm by @clarksbotanicals , 
with hydrating, plumping and anti-aging properties. It nourishes and protects your lips from the effects of aging. 

Jasmine oil by @clarksbotanicals:
This innovative and immuno-stimulating botanical infusion serum and oil is perfect to moisturize, nourish and revitalize skin.

Hydraboost HA Serum Pad by @m61skincare :
Serum pads with hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 & E that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 5.) Keep the blood flowing

Get up for a walk at least every couple of hours. This will increase blood flow. It is also helpful to practice some noninvasive exercises in the seat, such as shoulder movement and ankle rotation.

 6.) Try to rest and sleep

In order to sleep relaxed and peaceful, turn your seat into a place where you feel comfortable.

Even if you're not provided with a fresh soft sheet in the air, you can still make your own clean bed in the sky! 

That's why Safetravelskit has created the only seat cover that fits all types of seats and creates a barrier that lets you rest safe and clean. After all, do we sleep in a hotel without a sheet? Now you can bring your own! 

UPGRADE YOUR SEAT! 

Our universal seat cover applies quickly and adds a true layer of comfort and serenity to your seat for a peaceful and germ free flight! Don't forget to pop in earplugs and a sleeping mask and you're ready to rest as if you were in the bed of a luxury hotel.

 7.) Bring a soft bag that is not too big

On a long-haul flight, you will have to sit for a long time, and every inch is important to be comfortable.

Your personal bag to store under the seat in front of you should be small and soft so that you can keep your legs as relaxed as possible throughout the trip.
