My Travel Must Haves

Style & Beauty
Comments Off on My Travel Must Haves

My husband and I recently won a trip to Vegas, B I G thanks to Lanka Jewels (where he bought my engagement ring). While on the trip I realized quickly that each day I used the same six items. I wanted to share these items with you as some of them are from my favourite local shops, and the others are products that I have purchased and are frequently used everyday items.

FLYNN SUNGLASSES | SHOP MACCS : These sunglasses were worn everyday on our trip, they are the perfect sunglasses for any outfit. I love the fit, comfort and style as well as the colour. The glasses were purchased from Shop Maccs, an online store based out of Vancouver.

MAYBELLINE MAUVE 475 : This lip colour is my ultimate go to. I am not a huge lipstick wearer but I do have a handful that I brought along with me for our trip. I found that each night I resorted back to my favourite, Maybelline Mauve, as (i feel) it complements my brown eyes well.

HEBALIFE SUNSCREEN : My mom has sold Herbalife for a number of years now. I have gotten to test out quite a few products but I have to say their sunscreen is one of my favourites. I don’t normally get sun burns, though at the start of the summer I need to be the most careful. What I love this most about this sunscreen that when I am wearing it I don’t burn and I get a tan #winwin

THE ORIGINAL ROUNDIE | ARROW HOUSE : This is the ultimate towel people. Arrow House is a Canadian stockist for The Beach People, the creators of these masterpieces and I absolutely adore mine. If you are Canadian and looking for a place to purchase, Arrow House has two of The Beach People’s roundie designs available. The size is incredible, it almost wraps around my body two times and it spans my height as well. If you are looking for a towel to double as a blanket look no further.

TOMS : My everyday shoe. I am currently on my second pair of Toms as I wore my first ones out completely. These are one of the most comfortable shoes that I own and are perfect for travelling. The plane ride is always more comfortable when you have a nice pair of shoes that fit like a slipper.

PASSPORT HOLDER | PECAN TREE CREATIONS : Ok so no, I did not use this item everyday, but during our main travelling days it was super handy. Our passport holder is essential for storing our passports and keeping them safe. This was our first trip utilizing our passport holder from Pecan Tree Creations and I absolutely 100% will never go back. If you don’t already have a specific storage for your passports while travelling I highly recommend checking out Pecan Tree Creations store, she does custom orders too! Another #winwin

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.

For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
