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

  • 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

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
