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.

Shop Feature: MimiTENS

It’s that time of year again where the baggy sweaters, thick socks and warm mittens make their appearances.  Getting myself dressed is enjoyable as I love bundling up in layers.  Getting my kids geared up and ready to go is much harder.  Over the past month I have been testing out and dressing my daughter up in mimiTENS mittens and it has made the job so much more enjoyable.  mimiTENS are handmade with nylon, thinsulate and bamboo/organic cotton to keep your child’s hands ‘oh so cozy’.  I have discovered that my mimiTENS mittens stay on my daughter’s hands way better than any other mittens that she owns.   She doesn’t make a fuss when they are on either! Win Win!

Small Business: Simply Mel and Co.

I am constantly reminded about what a small world it is every time I make a new connection with someone and I realize that our paths had previously passed without even realizing it.  Melissa, from Simply Mel and Co., and I used to work across the street from each other, both working at different businesses owned by our mothers.  It wasn’t until recently, when Melissa contacted me through my blog that we realized we recognized each other.  I am so thrilled to have the pleasure to make this connection with Melissa and have the opportunity to learn more and share all about Melissa and Simply Mel and Co. with you.
