Travel Ready

Hey neighbors!!

I had a whole list of travel posts I was going to do, and then we went on "Stay at Home" orders.  Well, not that some of that is letting up, I would like to share some of my favorite travel gear!!  I have a secret to share, I LOVE Vera Bradley!!  I own several pieces and I love their versatility and style.

For long trips, they have  rolling luggage.  They have both Hard Side Rolling Luggage and Soft Side Rolling Luggage.  I prefer the hard side for longer trips, but I am totally satisfied with one of their soft side rolling luggage when we head out on a shorter trip.  I use one of their rolling bags for photography trips.  It holds my knee pads, large lens, a towel, extra batteries as well as other small items.  I just grab and go!!  The Grand Weekender travel bag is my go to on 1-2 day trips.  This smaller and easier to just toss in the back of the vehicle and head out.

Another handy item on trips is one of their backpacks that has a pocket for your laptop.  I use this one  when we are staying overnight, as it holds my laptop, I-pad, a couple books to read and often times my meds.  I use one of their regular laptop bags for short day trips.

One of their large cosmetic bags is what I use to hold my shower items.  When on trips I usually just pack travel size shampoo, conditioner and body wash,  toothbrush, etc.  

What I love most about Vera Bradley, is the quality of the product.  I have owned many of mine for over 5 years and they are still in really good condition.  Something else I enjoy is you can color coordinate everything.  You can go with one design or find one that contrasts nicely.

If you are considering a trip soon, be sure to visit the Vera Bradley website and see what they have to fit your needs!!

What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this.
