Travel Simply And In Comfort

When it comes to travel, we used to travel by car with our son. It was easier for us because we could stop as often as we wanted. It allowed us to get out and stretch, get refreshments, and anything else we needed to do. Since I’ve been a single mom, we haven’t been able to travel. However, I do like to be prepared. Whether we travel or just need sturdy bags to carry our things, I wanted reliable gear! Get ready for ideas on how to travel simply and in comfort!

Travel Simply And In Comfort
Beauty Brite Disclosure

As a single mom, I like to be prepared for anything I can. I wanted to update and upgrade our travel bags. This also allows me to have gear that I can use for the gym, a weekend getaway, or anything else we wanted to do! 

I am also a new foster dog mom. There are times when we need to transport the animal from the shelter to our home and vice versa. I wanted a backpack and a bag that would allow us to carry as much as we need!  

Even if we were to travel out of town, I wanted a bag and backpack for us to pack our things in, especially if we are aiming for light and easy going travel. 

Duffel bag for the active lifestyle

Jr Kong Bag in Charcoal

Meet the duffel bag that can keep up with your active lifestyle! I chose the Jr Kong Bag in Charcoal, however, when it arrived, I was a bit disappointed with the color. It’s not charcoal at all, it’s more of a dark green or “military green” type of green. I was hoping for a grey color, because it goes with anything and my son and I can both use it! 

The Jr Kong Bag can also be used as a gym bag. I recently started using our gym in the clubhouse here in our condo community. Before, I was using one of my many tote bags to hold my gym essentials, such as a water bottle

Jr Kong Bag shoe compartment

I love that the Jr Kong Bag can hold a pair of shoes! I feel like I can pack lightly and even fit my essentials, and a laptop in the bag! So many compartments! 

The Jr Kong Bag is handy to use for when we do travel. It’s the perfect size for a weekend trip! I can also use it to transport pet supplies when we pick up or drop of a foster dog! 

Compact backpack that carries your essentials

Mini Backpack in Charcoal

The Mini Backpack is far from “mini” as it has so many pockets and it can carry your essentials and more! I chose the Mini Backpack in Charcoal to match our Jr Kong Bag but unfortunately it is not grey! I’m disappointed that the bag and backpack aren’t grey. However, regardless of the color, they still work for our lifestyle! 

OOmg Low Shoes in Mini Backpack

The Mini Backpack can carry your laptop, a pair of shoes, and so much more!!! If my son and I are traveling, the backpack can easily be used to carry his clothes and necessities. I also like that it’s a backpack because he can easily carry it without me carrying the bag, my bag, holding his hand, and trying to get settled in! It’s just one less thing I have to worry about if we are out and about or traveling. 

OOmg Low Shoe in White Orange

I already have the OOmg Low Shoe in White & Black and just love them! They are lightweight and stylish! I wear them on my walks or running errands. I also love they are machine washable and let them air dry! 

The OOmg Low Shoe in White & Orange are just as stylish and cute! Since I like to travel with an extra pair of shoes, I’m glad that both bags can hold a pair of shoes! 

Wearing White Orange OOmg Shoes

I love my OOmg Low Shoe in White & Orange! I love the bright color and pair perfectly with jeans or leggings! I plan on volunteering in my son’s class and these shoes are perfect to wear! I can walk, jog, and run in them if needed! 

You can find Oofos shoes on Amazon and Zappos.

Personal Oil Diffuser For Personal Wellness

I am all for using an oil diffuser to keep my son and myself healthy! I like to use essential oils to add a natural scent and freshen up our indoor air. I also like to use aromatherapy to improve our health! When my son starts sniffling, sneezing, or even coughing, I quickly pull out the oil diffuser and oils! We found a personal oil diffuser for personal wellness that is compact and packs a punch!

My son has Autism and when he starts to get upset or needs to calm down, aromatherapy really does help! My favorite go-to oil is Lavender! I just add a few drops into our diffuser and it takes about 15 to 20 minutes and my son is calmed down from whatever triggered him. It also helps in the evening if he is too energetic!

Deep Clean In A Green Way

I vaguely remember my laundry life before my son was born. I was doing laundry about once a week. Within days of bringing our son home, I was doing laundry throughout the day and week. It was never-ending. There are times when I try to go a few days without doing laundry and then I realize I need to wash towels or bedding or the laundry basket is too full! On my on-going mission to go eco-friendly, I prefer to use natural laundry detergent. We found an awesome line of products that offer deep clean in a green way!

As a mom of four, I feel like someone is always battling some sort of cold. With the two oldest in school, and then the two youngest in preschool our house is constantly a petri dish of germs. Add into the mix that I work at a daycare teaching the one and two-year-olds, this mommy is constantly on the search for ways to keep our family healthier.

Oven Ranch Potatoes

My son loves potatoes. In the past, he used to love eating baked potatoes. He had them for months straight.  He also loves french fries! We don’t get to eat out much, but when we do, he likes to get french fries with his burger. We are so excited to share our Oven Ranch Potatoes recipe! So easy to make for the family!

Oven Ranch Potatoes

I like to keep our meals simple. My son loves pasta right now. He and I tend to eat our meals separately. I don’t mind making him his food and then making myself something different.

Its A Disney Frozen Holiday Are you ready?
Beauty Brite Disclosure

It is the moment fans have been waiting for. The release of Disney’s Frozen II on November 22, 2019! The first Frozen movie was released in 2013 and while there have been short “movies” released since then with our favorite characters, it isn’t quite the same as a full-length movie. My girls and I have been counting down the days since we heard the release date of the newest adventure and we have been rounding up our gear in the process. I’ve got one item though that truly tops the list of our Frozen frenzy.
