        Just in Case...

        Just in case…. when you pack for a vacation is this always in the back of your mind?

        I was a Girl Scout as a young girl and thus I learned to always be prepared. It’s something I always think of when I’m packing for a vacation.

        So many times, I’ve been so glad that I packed a tote. It doesn’t take up much room and even if I’m not going to the beach, it’s been so useful.

        If you like to shop, it’s the perfect carry on for all the extra fun purchases. I often like to carry a lot of essentials if I’m out a day trip and a tote is the perfect purse.

        You might need to do a little laundry and again the tote is right there. Or perhaps a quick trip to the grocery store, you can avoid plastic bags.

        A road trip always requires snacks and a tote filled with all your favorite goodies fits easily in the back seat. And it will definitely suit your style as a diaper bag.

        A tote is the perfect "just in case" bag. You’ll always feel prepared with a practical and stylish tote.

        Now get out there and go someplace you’ve never been before.

        The Sunny Side of Life

        The Sunny Side of Life

        “Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine.” — Jeffrey Glassberg

        Butterflies are said to symbolize feelings of freedom, beauty, joy, love, femininity and transformation.

        I love the power of transformation. Transformation comes from growing, learning and changing.

        Buckminster Fuller said, ““There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.”

        The butterfly shows us it takes time to change and the end looks gloriously different from the beginning.

        Love yourself in the process, enjoy your life, surround yourself with people who love you and celebrate even the smallest change.

        Whenever you need inspiration, just look at the butterfly. The butterfly cannot see the beauty of their own wings, but it’s still there.

        It’s time for you to take flight, and let others see the beauty in you.

        What if the change you are avoiding is the one that gives you wings!

        Wherever your summer takes you!

        Wherever your summer takes you!

        Beach bags can be a chic way to carry all your belongings.

        Here are 5 things I like to consider when looking for a beach tote:

        1. It has to have an eye-catching style that will be the talk of the beach.
        2. Will it hold all the essentials; towel, water, book, sunscreen, hat, and cover up.
        3. A tote needs to be multi-purpose. Great for errands, shopping, the gym, the list goes on.
        4. The perfect tote is easy to fold up and store in the car or easily fits in a suitcase.
        5. Size matters; it can’t be too big and must sit comfortably on your shoulder.

        The key is to find a bag that makes it fun to carry your stuff to and from the shore.

        The Beauty of Knitting

        The Beauty of Knitting

        “Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either. Elizabeth Zimmerman

         According to Mental Health America not only does knitting bring you, it also has mental health benefits.

         Here are some of the benefits:

        • Lowered blood pressure
        • Reduced depression and anxiety
        • Distraction from chronic pain
        • Increased sense of wellbeing
        • Reduced loneliness and isolation

        I keep a knitting project going all year long. Knitting truly does relaxes me and it’s such wonderful creative outlet.

        Our Gretna tote is the perfect bag to keep your knitting project organized.

        It measures 15”H x 14” W and features two large interior pockets.

         Even if you don’t knit, it’s still an amazing bag.

        Be prepared for winter and still be stylish.

        I am always of the mind set to be prepared for any old thing. You never know what winter will bring. 

        Whether you run out of gas, get a flat tire, or slip off a snowy road, a car emergency kit can help you get back on the road safely and quickly.

        The National Safety Council, AAA and The Old Farmers Almanac are all great resources for cold weather tips. Be careful and drive safe.

        Here are a few suggestions to put in your kit:

        • Ice scraper
        • Hats, gloves, scarf
        • Umbrella
        • Flash light/extra batteries
        • Snack, energy bars, water
        • First Aid Kit
        • Wool socks
        • Small wool blanket
        • matches
