Often when traveling I for short trips I try to minimize my luggage. Especially when I find a budget trip on an airline which might have higher cost for baggage, I make sure to only have a carry on or personal item when arriving. That sometimes means I have to think a little outside of the box when planning. While obvious solutions such as pairing down my skincare and hair products, selecting only the must have make up items and leaving the bulky electronics at home might s
One thing I have learned about travel is no two people are exactly the same when it comes to their routine on a plane. Fact is we all are a little bit different on our preferences, likes or tastes in exactly what it is that we do while spending our time in the air. Are you one of those people who enjoys putting down your tray table and often working? Do you often find yourself putting in your earbuds and trying to find something on your iPod before the flights even take it of
Love a good hike or thinking about getting into hiking? The boots or shoes might be important but you might also consider a good once over of your feet before taking on a trail… You are probably looking at this article with a puzzled face at that statement, but a trip to the salon for a pedicure or even an at home spa day for your feet might just be beneficial before you take on a challenging outdoor activity like hiking. It really doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman o
Packing has become one of our universal triggers for anxiety. All to often we have all had to pack a bag for a trip and really struggled with getting things to fit correctly or being organized in a way which can be easily accessed without having to repack each time you need a simple shirt.

Have you ever packed away a necklace only to find it in a big knotted mess when you arrive and are ready to wear it? Nothing is worse than trying to untangle a delicate chain and feeling like you are just wasting your time fumbling with your fingers to the point of frustration. How can you prevent it from happening though? What happens when you have to pack your delicate items away in carry on or check bags which are often carelessly shifted? Is there a way to resolve this
With summer just around the corner, we are ready to start being outdoors more and traveling and with that comes more and more outdoor cooking and grilling. It is one of our favorite things about traveling to destinations such as beaches or lakes to set the tone for that perfect sunset with friends and family. But before we go packing our lawn chairs, our tents and our coolers, we first need to take a moment to plan ahead. No we aren’t talking about buying groceries or even do
Have you ever been hiking and started to notice the sun might be setting a bit more rapidly than you were expecting. We all have been in that odd limbo of do we stop for the night or do we press on, can we make it to the car before dark or is it safe to keep going on this trail if there is no light? I remember personally traveling in Arizona near the Arizona Hot Springs one afternoon. The hike was so beautiful and the hot springs were so inviting that time slipped away.
One company’s unique outlook on keeping teeth clean is bringing a new concept to packing when traveling. In a world where we often are delegated to packaging 3 oz or less, it can make it a bit tough to find those perfect items for your overnight bag, your toiletries or even your long term travel bag. But maybe we have all been looking at this the wrong way… Instead of packing toothpaste what if we took candy?? Candy has traditionally been associated with poor dental hygi
