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

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount
  • 30! 🤭

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
