My Travel Must Haves

FAVORITE PLACES
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

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada
