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!

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.

Get More Out Of Your Water

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Drinking water is something that we all need in life to survive! I personally got so tired of going through cases and cases of water every week. Between myself and my husband drinking it, using filtered water to mix all of our formula for baby bottles, and also having to use it for our dog due to her having prior issues with calcium build up causing kidney stones, I can say that we have spent a lot of time and money on bottled water.

Are you looking to get more out of your water? Let us show you how with ZeroWater!

Call it writer’s block or procrastination, but finding the right words for this post has been a struggle. Although writing is what I do for a living, talking about July 21, 2017, is still so raw and painful. After two years of fighting harder than I ever thought possible, my mom lost her battle against Stage IV Colon Cancer. That morning and the day she was diagnosed are two of the worst days of my family’s life. Since then, I’ve been longing for some healing comfort.

I love being a stay at home mom and caregiver to my son. He has special needs, so daycare isn’t really possible. There are times when I miss the adult interaction and conversation. I remember when I worked full time outside of the home. I also remember coming home and being so exhausted. Being away from home, kept me from doing the household chores and taking care of my family.

I have been a fan of mineral makeup for years now. I first tried mineral makeup soon after my son was born. I was searching for natural products to use because I was interested in removing chemicals and unwanted ingredients from our household and my beauty products. Back then, mineral makeup came in jars and it usually got all over the place! Now, there are more options when it comes to natural makeup!
