Have you started crossing destinations off your travel bucket list? If so, I’m sure you’ve realized that traveling can put you outside of your comfort zone, both mentally and physically. While it’s nice to see and visit places near and far, the physical strains can be quite tiring.

I’m the type of person who wants to see and do everything imaginably possible wherever I go. So whether it’s a personal vacation or traveling for business, my body is always hurting when I return home. With that being said, I’ve learned a trick or two about how to travel in comfort so that when I get back, I’m not glued to the pillow recovering before getting back into my usual routine.

Take Only the Essentials

I will be the first to admit that on a three day trip, I pack like I’ll be away for a week. You never know what you might do or need while traveling, right? But I’ve slowly learned that really trying to narrow down my luggage to just the necessities will not only save me a little sanity when packing, but it’s less weight I have to lug around. Toting lighter luggage is much easier on my body.

Don’t Skip Out on Sleeping Accommodations

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

If you’re trying to travel on a budget, skipping out on comfortable sleeping accommodations may be a go-to for you. And it makes sense if you’re not going to be in your room other than to sleep. But this can take a major toll on how you feel day after day. Just like at home, if you’re bed isn’t comfortable and you don’t get the rest you need, your travel experience will suffer and so will your body.




Care for Your Feet

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

I don’t know about you, but when I travel I do a LOT of walking and boy, do my feet feel the wrath. Don’t get me wrong, I occasionally take a cab or call an Uber, but when you’re exploring a new place, it’s the little hole in the wall restaurants and stores that make it all worthwhile.

To keep my feet comfortable during the trip and ready to go when I get home, I turn to Airplus. Airplus, a pioneer in unique, comfortable and affordable foot care accessories has everything you need to care for your feet while traveling.

I have had plantar fasciitis problems for a few years now and with the help of Airplus Plantar Fascia Orthotics, I’m able to walk for long periods of time in some otherwise uncomfortable shoes, and my feet feel so much better afterwards.

While traveling, I also like to take along my Airplus Aloe Infused Socks. I may or may not be wearing them right now (I totally am). At the end of the day, these babies are great for a little R&R. They’re comfy, ultra-moisturizing, and have a soothing texture. Ahhhh, bliss for my feet.

If I’m being honest, I don’t only use Airplus when traveling because they’re also great for everyday use. And I’m not the only one. My boyfriend uses them daily for his commute to and from work. We live in New Jersey, just across the river from New York City. He works in NYC and commutes daily.

His commute consists of walking to the bus stop, taking the bus to the train, taking the train as close as he can to work, and then walking the rest of the way. On top of that he walks anywhere he needs to go during the day, but he never leaves home without Airplus Memory Plus Insoles in his shoes.

Stay Hydrated

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

While traveling, when you’re out and about you don’t want to forget about hydration. Right now, in the middle of summer, the weather is insanely hot. I can’t even walk a block down the street without a few drops of sweat rolling down my face. This doesn’t change just because you’re visiting some place new. Keep a bottle of water handy, or travel with a reusable bottle so you can fill up when you need to. And this goes for cooler weather, too. Don’t be left in the cold without the ability to quench your traveling thirst.

So no matter where your travels take you, make sure you’re set for a comfortable trip and comfortable return back to your usual routine.

Do you have any travel plans in the near future?

Build Your Own Bundle at Ecocentric Mom

Ecocentric Mom has done away with the Mom and Pregnancy subscription boxes, and are now offering Build Your Own Bundles instead! Check them out! #EcocentricMom #subscriptionbox #ecofriendly
~Thank you to Ecocentric Mom for providing product for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own. This post also contains affiliate links, in which I will receive a small commission for your purchase.~

To all of my fellow Ecocentric Mom lovers (or future lovers), there’s a fun new feature on the website that I just know you are going to enjoy – Build Your Own Bundle! Today I’m going to give you the low down on how Build Your Own Bundle works and share with you my first one.

First off, if you’re not familiar with Ecocentric Mom, it is hands down THE best eco-friendly subscription box around. At least that’s how I feel about it. With nothing but all-natural, organic, non-toxic products for mom, baby, and your family/home in general, there’s no better way to try new products. And if you get something in your box that you can’t live without, chances are it can be purchased individually at Ecocentric Mom too.




Let’s get into the new Build Your Own Bundle feature! It never fails, no matter type of subscription box you have, there will always be times you get something in the box that either you can’t use, or just isn’t something you want to use. Ecocentric Mom has eliminated that problem with the Build Your Own Bundle feature.

You choose every item that comes in the box, so when it arrives on your doorstep and you open it up, there are no surprises. On the flip side, I understand surprises are sometimes fun, but what’s not fun is spending money on products you won’t use.

Ecocentric Mom has done away with the Mom and Pregnancy subscription boxes, and are now offering Build Your Own Bundles instead! Check them out! #EcocentricMom #subscriptionbox #ecofriendly

Right now Ecocentric Mom has phased out their monthly Mom and Pregnancy subscription boxes, and replaced them with a Build Your Own Clean Lifestyle Bundle (for mom/$29.99) and a Build Your Own Pregnancy Bundle (for expectant moms/$39.99).

But never fear, the Mom & Baby monthly subscription box is still available. So moms with infants/toddlers up to age 2 years, are still covered.

So, how do the Build Your Own Bundle boxes work? It’s super easy! You go to the desired Build Your Own Bundle box and from drop-down menus choose the products you want. I recently created a Build Your Own Clean Lifestyle Bundle and got to choose full size products from each of these categories:

  • Luxury Skincare/Beauty
  • Clean Beauty/Makeup
  • Health & Wellness
  • Eco-Lifestyle Accessory

Ecocentric Mom has done away with the Mom and Pregnancy subscription boxes, and are now offering Build Your Own Bundles instead! Check them out! #EcocentricMom #subscriptionbox #ecofriendly

In each category you have at least five products to choose from and sometimes more. Every month new items are added, so you don’t have to worry about lack of  variety to choose from. This time around, for my clean lifestyle bundle, I chose:

  • Marine Granules Exfoliator by Previse
  • Lip Locked Stain by Mana Kadar Beauty (I have one of these from a previous Ecocentric Mom box and LOVE it! It’s my everyday go-to color, no matter what kind of mood I’m in, so having a backup doesn’t hurt.)
  • Simply Organic Sunblock by Z Skin Cosmetics
  • Snack Happens Reusable Snack and Everything Bag by Itzy Ritzy

Ecocentric Mom has done away with the Mom and Pregnancy subscription boxes, and are now offering Build Your Own Bundles instead! Check them out! #EcocentricMom #subscriptionbox #ecofriendly

When my box arrived, which was just like three days after placing my order, that’s exactly what was in my box. I even had a little added bonus snack bar by MadeGood. It was delicious, by the way.

Oh, and did I mention the amazing savings you’re getting? The Build Your Own Clean Lifestyle Bundle is $29.99, but you’re getting full size products that can retail upwards of $100. That is some awesome savings!

So what do you think? Doesn’t get much easier, right? No wasting money on unwanted products. And no wondering what’s going to come in this month’s box. It’s a win-win!

With Text2Save Your Savings Are Always with You

With Text2Save Your Savings Are Always with You #text2save #savingmoney #coupons #digitalsavings

Have you ever gone shopping, just to realize you had a coupon you could have used, but darn it, you left it at home or can’t remember where you saw the savings? Yeap. Happens to me ALL the time and I hate it.

Ya’ll know I love saving money any way I can and when I get to the store and realize I forgot my coupons or digital savings, I die a little inside. True story. But with the new Text2Save, I don’t have to worry about that anymore. I’m saving all the money I can and don’t have to worry about leaving anything at home.

What is Text2Save?

Text2Save is a new way to not only save big money while you shop, but save the offer when you are ready to buy. I realize people might have some reservations about it, so let me clear that up right now.

I Trust Text2Save

Thanks to working closely with ShopShare Network, I have the insider scoop on how Text2Save works. ShopShare does their due diligence to make sure they are offering something that benefits everyone. Lots of research went into this program before the launch. Lawyers and compliance teams, and all the boring things necessary to make sure my audience receives valuable offers from brands you love and only when you give your express permission. It’s a convenient way of shopping, save the offer for later, and/or share with it your friends.




What’s in it for me?

Well, I’m not sure if you knew this but there are millions of bloggers in the US alone. On a daily basis, we are driven to provide our audience with valuable information and product recommendations. We aren’t professional sales people, we are doing what we love and trying to make a living doing it. The blogger community has gotten more and more competitive as advertisers demand more and more performance from us, more likes, more clicks, more comments, more, and more, and more. The net result is dollars over quality, and we aren’t down for that. Content should be inspired and not a volume based business, but the reality is, it has quickly become that.

Text2Save by ShopShare Network allows me to more wisely choose what content I want to write about, while earning income sharing about brands and hot deals that I CHOOSE via social media or on my blog!

How Does It Work?

When you opt-in to Text2Save, ShopShare Network sends instructions to your mobile device on how to redeem the offer, with my affiliate tracking link that allows me to earn a small commission on anything purchased, at no extra cost to you. In fact, ShopShare is negotiating hard to provide some of the best deals available exclusively to their blogger network.

This is a convenient form of direct response advertising. Remember this:

Call this 1-800 number and receive 50% off. If you call in within 24 hours you’ll get double your order. Blah, blah, blah.

Now, texting has replaced phone calls! Text2Save is an efficient and effective way to deliver the offer directly to your mobile device, save money on the brands and products you love, and be able to actually find the offer when you are ready to use it. There are expiration dates but don’t worry because ShopShare’s Text2Save program ensures you know what you are signing up for!

How does it work? (Example ONLY)

1. I will post promotions on my blog or social media channels

  • Text TRIP120 to 12345
  • You can expect to see disclosures when I post a promotion: USA Only. Message & data rates may apply. You agree to receive information and product promotions up to 4 automated text messages per month from TravelBrand.com. Consent is not a condition of purchase. Text STOP to 77453 to cancel anytime.

With Text2Save Your Savings Are Always With You #text2save #savingmoney #coupons #digitalsavings

2. A text message will be sent within a few minutes asking you to reply YES to confirm you want to receive information about a specific offer.

With Text2Save Your Savings Are Always With You #text2save #savingmoney #coupons #digitalsavings

3. Click on the link at the bottom to redeem offer and use promotion code at checkout to ensure you receive the discount.

With Text2Save Your Savings Are Always With You #text2save #savingmoney #coupons #digitalsavings

4) A reminder message may be sent so don’t be alarmed, promotions generally don’t last long so I want to ensure you take advantage.

Reasons to Use Text2Save

Exclusive savings – In most cases, the coupon codes offered through Text2Save are exclusive and larger than what you will find elsewhere.

Always with you – How many times do you have that piece of mail with a coupon code on it with you when you want to buy the item? Or, you remember seeing a great code somewhere, but can’t find it once you’re ready to buy. Finding a current code online isn’t always easy. With Text2Save the code is in your text messages. And I’m willing to bet your phone is always with you.

Customized offers – The keywords to text are niche-specific, so you’ll only get deals on what you’re interested in.

No spam – To run Text2Save offers on the brand’s side, much compliance is necessary. That means you can read exactly what you are signing up for. The disclosure message will say exactly how many texts you will receive, and you can believe it. Compliance is not something anyone wants to mess with.

Opt out anytime – There’s clear messaging on how to opt out easily at any time. If you signed up for more than one promotion and the short code, otherwise known as the number you text to, and enter STOP, you will be opted-out of all promotions associated with that number. You can choose to opt-in again when you see an offer you like.

Advertising continues to evolve with technology. Text2Save is not a gimmick or spammy trick. It’s simply a way to reach people where they are nowadays – their phones. Consumers can reap the rewards in big savings. Influencers can participate to earn affiliate money. It’s a promising platform that we can all feel comfortable embracing!

Are you ready to start saving with Text2Save?

FoamCorePrint.com is the Affordable Way to Display Your Photos {Giveaway}

FoamCorePrint.com is the Affordable Way to Display Your Photos #gatorboard #foamboard #FoamCorePrint
~This post is sponsored by FoamCorePrint.com. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~




When it comes to home decor, I love to display family photos throughout my home. We have photos up in just about every room. From traditional picture frames and photos, to canvas prints, and now we’ve added a few Gator Board Prints.

I was recently looking for something to add some love to my kids room. I’ve been trying to make their room more lively lately, so when looking for prints to display I thought it would be perfect to get some Gator Board Prints of the two of them.

FoamCorePrint.com is the Affordable Way to Display Your Photos #gatorboard #foamboard #FoamCorePrint

I call it the Sibling Love Series and I’ve placed them in a small and awkward space of their room, the wall area just outside their closet. It was white and boring, but with the addition of their new Gator Board Prints, that space is now adorned with their sibling love.

Gator Board is a type of foam board that offers a more sturdy solution to traditional foam board printing. Just to give you an idea, traditional foam board can easily bend, dent, and is generally a lot more fragile. So you could say Gator Board is the tough, protective big brother to it’s baby sister, foam board.

Gator Board comes with an all black border and back, which I love because it gives a shadow type of effect, and it’s super lightweight. So if you ever find yourself moving to a new place, Gator Board Prints definitely won’t weigh down a moving box like traditional picture frames will.

You could say one of the downsides of Gator Board is that there’s nothing on the back to hang it with, but personally I actually prefer this. The back of the print is completely flat and this allows me to use the double sided sticky Command strips to stick them to the wall. You get that floating effect and there’s no damage done to either the Gator Board or the wall.

It’s perfect for us since we currently rent, but even if you own your home, the less damage you do, the better, right? I mean, what if you decide to change things up one day and move your prints to a different room, or a different place in the same room? I would hate to be left with a nail or hole in the wall.

FoamCorePrint.com is the Affordable Way to Display Your Photos #gatorboard #foamboard #FoamCorePrint

Printing on foam board is THE most affordable way I’ve found to display my favorite photos and images, while keeping the quality of the photo. And my favorite place to order them from is FoamCorePrint.com.

Price depends on the size you want, but Gator Board Prints from FoamCorePrint.com start at just $0.15 per piece! If you’re looking to do a nice small collage, or even grow a display into something large and eye catching, it really doesn’t get more affordable.

As for my Sibling Love Series, I love the idea of over the years adding more brother/sister photos to the display. I’ll continue with the same size and maybe once a year go through all of my photos and choose three more to add to it. And when the kids are older, it will be fun to have this Sibling Love Series of Gator Board Prints to look back on.
