What to Wear and How to Pack

Summer is just around the corner and for many families, that means vacations. What do you pack
when you go on vacation? Comfy clothes? Your favorite stylish clothes?
Whatever you pack, here are a few tips on what and how to pack.

First of all, how to pack:

  1. Make a packing list. I can't live without my packing list. I would be totally lost without it. It has grown longer and longer with almost every trip. Yep I bring lots of stuff to help make my vacation as comfy as possible.
  2. Once you know what you want to pack, begin the process by rolling your clothes, not folding. I am sure you may have heard this before. Why? Rolling  helps prevent some wrinkles and creases. Also, rolling uses space wisely. You can fit more when you roll. 
  3. Plan your outfits ahead of time, so you will pack only what you really need to. I always pack 1 or 2 extra outfits so I have more to choose from. 
  4. To save even more space, pack your socks inside your shoes. You can even pack your jewelry or other breakables inside your socks and then inside your shoes. This will protect them.
  5. Always pack a first aid kit. It always comes in handy.
  6. Put items that could potentially leak into a ziploc bag to prevent unwanted surprises when you get to your destination.
Now, what to pack:
  1. Pack for weather. You may be going somewhere warm, but what if it rains. Pack layers and at least 1 pair of pants just in case. A light jacket or sweater is smart too.
  2. Pack shoes that can be worn with several outfits. Also, pack shoes for walking if you plan to go hiking or shopping.
  3. Jewelry, hat, and belt if you need one.
  4. Pack a swim suit if you plan to lay out in the sun or go swimming.
  5. Do Not forget chargers for your electronics.
  6. If you wear contacts, bring an extra pair if you can and don't forget your glasses.
  7. I always pack a couple hair ties and lip balm.
  8. Pack your camera so you can capture your trip and look back on it for years.
  9. Last but not least, bring snacks and fun activities to make the ride more entertaining. 
I hope this helped you prepare for your Summer vacation. Have a great time and be safe!!!

What to Wear Wednesday!!! Working out

I have been going to a local gym for a while now. I have spent the last 20+ years working out in my home to aerobic tapes or Youtube videos or the Wii fit. Well, I have decided to give back to myself. My kids are growing up and I feel I deserve a little extra something for myself. So, today's what to wear tip is about working out. I am posting 2 articles this time. One is what to wear in 2018 for working out and one is what not to wear. Both are equally important and interesting reads. I hope you enjoy them and I hope you do some sort of exercise to keep healthy and strong. Our bodies need it.

What to Wear For Summer 2018

Google Images
As I was doing some research on the styles coming for this Summer, one thing became pretty clear. The clothes I wore in high school are coming back and it seems so strange. I remember when my mom would say things are coming back and now here I am saying it. 
This Summer there is a lot of ruffles, flowing tops, cut off shorts and skirts, high waists and crop tops. Oh, and I can't forget....rompers are back!!!
I have a great article that has photos of the up and coming style. Check it out here!

Great Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is just days away. What should you get Mom this year? Here are some ideas for some great Mother's Day gifts.
  1. Flowers are always a great gift. Why not try a bouquet of your mothers favorite flowers but in silk? There are some places that make amazing life like silk flowers and they will last forever. 
  2. Blankets or wraps. As we get older we seem to get colder. hehe I love wrapping up in a soft blanket and a wrap is like a blanket that can go anywhere with mom. 
  3. Herb garden. Does your mom like to cook? Is she a good cook? Plant her a little herb garden. It can be an outdoor one in a planter or an indoor one in little planters for each herb. Whatever your creative juices tell you to do, you can do. 
  4. Spa day! Give your mom a day to relax and be pampered. If you can't afford a whole day, how about just a manicure or pedicure or facial. She will thank you. 
  5. Jewelry is always a good gift. I am selling Paparazzi Jewelry if you need some. Lol
  6. Give your mom the day off by hiring someone to clean her house or maybe take a day and clean it for her if you can't afford to hire someone. 
  7. Wine or wine glasses if your mom likes to drink wine. You can put a book in with it for a relaxing evening. 
  8. Mugs or coffee cups. I know she probably has a million, but be creative. I use Shutterfly to make mugs with photos on them for a personal touch.
  9. Gardening tools. Does she like to garden? Give her a gift basket of gardening stuff. Even if she already has some, she can always use more. 
  10. Candy or other treats that you have to go to a special candy store or bakery to get, not just your local supermarket.
There you go, 10 great ideas for gifts for mom. You have no excuse now, show her how much she really means to you.
