Are me and my baggages permitted?

As our departure for Cabo nears, many things wandered through my mind. You see, since coming to the states, I've never left the borders. Not to Tijuana or anywhere else overseas except to Canada. So I'm little bit...nervous. Okay, I admit (ahem) I am scared...just a little.

Especially with the recent ban on liquids, gels and aerosols placed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), I'm now clueless as to what could not be carried on board commercial aircrafts.

My husband, the sweetie he is and always thinking about me, sent me a link to the TSA's site where they list all the permitted and prohibited items (pretty lenient in my humble opinion).

I was relieved to learn that I can indeed carry on my person, eye drops and saline solution as well as (solid) makeup.

But what was even more surprising was that "Items used to augment the body for medical or cosmetic reasons such as mastectomy products, prosthetic breasts, bras or shells containing gels, saline solution [...]" are permitted.

Boy was I really glad to know that I will not have to extract these items from my body for our trip. I simply would not be able to wear all the new bikinis I got from Malibu Strings!
