Have you ever gone on a trip – only to discover that you’ve forgotten to bring along something that you REALLY need? Well, you’re definitely not alone. A new survey found that a shocking number of us forget travel essentials – including phones – before a trip, and a surprising number of us won’t go back to grab that ever-so-important item. OnePoll surveyed 2,000 Americans on behalf of DoorDash, and found that 39% of people forget more than 5 items each month and the average person has to return home to retrieve 4 forgotten items in that same period. Other findings in the survey:
• 31% of adults accidentally leave their cellular device at home.
• 28% forget water bottles or drinks.
• 25% forget to pack items such as deodorant, body lotion and makeup.
Respondents said that usually, they will carry on without their essentials, with just 19% saying they’d go back for their left-behind items – if they are just one street away. 14% said they would never go back. One in 5 people said they’d be able to travel without their phone.

The legendary landmark, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, is reportedly riddled with rust and badly in need of repairs. But instead, it is being given a paint job costing 60 million euros in preparation for the 2024 Olympics, according to a confidential analysis cited by French magazine Marianne. The Eiffel Tower, built in the late 19th century, is among the most visited tourist sites in the world, welcoming about 6 million people annually. The company that oversees the tower is reluctant to close it for a long time because of the revenue that would be lost, according to the magazine.

Former ‘Mean Girl’ Lindsay Lohan is now a married girl, according to an Instagram post Saturday morning. The 36-year-old posted a selfie with Bader Shammas for his birthday, but fans were quick to notice Lohan referred to her former fiancé as her husband.

If you love picnicking but have found that dragging a cheese board around to be a bit of a pain, let me introduce you to the greatest innovation to portable food since the picnic basket – the “Snacklebox”! As you might have guessed by its name, it’s much like a tackle box you’d use for fishing – but instead of being loaded with wriggly worms and hooks and bobbers and stuff, it’s filled with snacks. It’s suggested you start with a meat, a cheese, and a carb, and build it out from there with pickles, olives, fruit, nuts, and any other items you’d like to add. Those who know say it’s perfect for bringing snacks on a boat, to a park, or even to a sporting event. Thanks to the wonder that is TikTok, it has now graduated from a Google curiosity to a full-fledged viral idea. One vid, posted by an American woman named Skylar, shows off the epic selection she and her mother made for her cousin’s bachelorette party. The now-viral video has over 2 million views, with thousands of commenters marvelling at the brilliance that is the Snacklebox. LINK: https://tinyurl.com/y724vhys
