#MedicLife: Using the Medical ID on your iPhone

No one ever thinks about not being able to use your phone in an emergency, but what happens if you need to? Say you’re in a car accident and you’re not able to answer EMS’ questions. Maybe you had an allergic reaction to something you ate, but no one around you knows what caused it, and you can’t speak. Say you partied too hard one night, and you blacked out, or ended up somewhere you weren’t supposed to be. Or, on the lighter side let’s say that you lost your phone somewhere random, and there’s no way for someone to unlock it to call your family.
The newer iPhones have something called the Medical ID! It is the equivalent of having the bracelet around your wrist, but this can hold so much more information, and can be accessed from your lock screen. It takes 2 minutes to set up, and can be so beneficial down the line.
1. Start by finding the Apple Health Kit App on your iPhone (excuse my background)
2. Open the app ( I know seems like an unnecessary step)
3. Look on the bottom of the screen to press the Medical ID information
4. Scroll down until you see “Edit” information, and put in all of your information! Especially allergies!
5. Don’t forget to make it visible from your lock screen. That is the most important part!
I hope you found this information helpful! Please share this with friends and family. Until next time,

Wanderlust: Carry On

As I might have mentioned before, I’m a bag lady. I have to have the perfect bag for any trip that I’m going on. Bringing the perfect bag(s) on the plane is no different.
While perusing Pinterest I stumbled on a bag by SoleSociety that I believe is just perfect for what I needed, and can be used for weekend trips in the future. The bag has a roomy interior portion, but isn’t too big. It’s also soft sided so it can be squished into tight places. The fun part is that the bag also has a bottom compartment that can carry another pair of shoes, clothes, makeup, whatever you want to be down there!
Other than the perfect bag here are the other items I bring
  1. iPhone with charger
  2. Laptop with charger
  3. Important Documents (Passport, Wallet, and ID any tour tickets you planned ahead of time)
  4. Medications
  5. Camera
  6. Pens and Paper
  7. Gum
  8. Snacks
  9. Small blanket and eye mask
  10. Reading material
  11. Makeup (I like to keep this with me)
  12. Change of clothes (I always keep a spare just in case of lost luggage)
  13. Sunglasses
  14. Extra Items: wet Wipes, Tide-To-Go pen, Minimergency Kit, bobbie pins and hair ties, water bottle
On this particular trip through Italy, I had a lot of school work to do, so I also had my backpack filled with school work. I love my Northface backpack because even though it was filled it felt very light on my back.
Some of the items in the picture include a travel wallet, summer blanket, and passport cover all from MochiThings a really great website with a lot of nice travel things, and paper crafts!
What are some of your favorite carry on items? Until next time,
