For fall, I decided to book a trip to the East Coast, specifically Boston and other parts of Massachusetts. The idea was to enjoy some actual fall weather (which we absolutely do not have in L.A.) and get my spooky witchiness on by visiting Salem and various Massachusetts haunts. Now, a trip like this might not seem like that big of a deal to some people, but it was my first time going on a plane since pre-pandemic days! Traveling has always been a little stressful and nerve-racking for me, but this was on another level.
I knew I had to be totally prepared and make sure I had all of my comforts with me on the plane and on my trip. I, a Libra, tried my best to go into the brain space of a Virgo and meticulously planned both itinerary and packing list. Said list included an array of beauty products that would comfort me and protect my skin from this change in weather as well as travel accessories that would help make the trip as seamless as possible.
For the first part of my spooky trip, I started off in Boston, staying at The Liberty Hotel, which was recommended to me by various people in the beauty scene—not because it’s a beauty destination, per se, but because it used to be a jail! In its past life, The Liberty was the Charles Street Jail, which was built in 1851 and shut down in 1990. (You can still see a lot of the bullet holes in the original brick walls.) Aside from the interesting and slightly creepy history, I was happy that my room had a bathtub and excellent bathroom lighting, both of which are important to me whenever I stay at a hotel—especially as someone who packs just as many products as I do clothes.
