Must Pack Items for Any Mom Planning to Travel with Kids

Travelling is something that people look forward to any time of year. Whether you’re travelling far distances or somewhere much closer, it’s an opportunity to get away from everyday life and stress and experience relaxation, a different culture, fabulous sights, and a new cuisine. Of course, with travel comes an element of stress as there are lots of things to plan and organize in order for the trip to go smoothly. Now factor in travelling with kids, especially young ones, and suddenly the amount of stress you are under increases exponentially.

As a mom, the responsibility of getting them packed and organized tends to lie on your shoulders, and you also need to be the one that looks ahead and tries to anticipate various scenarios that could occur while you’re away so that you are prepared with the right items. Taking a methodical approach to packing is typically the best route to take, even if that means you write out a list of items you need to bring. And what are those items you absolutely need to pack? Here’s a list of items that should make the list.

A Comfortable Purse or Bag that is Hands-Free

How many times have you been out with the family only to find by the end of the day you’re the one holding the majority of the items? The kids tend to pass you their coat, toys, snacks, drinks, etc. and you just need to find a way to juggle it all.

Rather than fight it, it’s best to anticipate it and use a purse or bag for yourself that is hands-free. Something stylish like the Chloé backpack available here will be sure to impress and is a practical piece that allows you to stow your items in without having to hold it. The Chloé bag can be worn on your shoulders so you will have both your hands free. Now the Chloé backpack is also versatile in that you can remove the straps and carry the bag, which you may prefer if you happen to be out on your own.

Choosing the right mattress for your body

Most people think that buying a mattress is a simple thing: you got to a shop or an online store, browse a bit, try a few of them and buy the one that suits you the most or the one that has the best reviews. Unfortunately, things are a bit more complicated than that.

The mattress is the pillar of your health. Not only do they provide a support to your back but they also ensure you’re well rested. Proper rest is crucial for all your daily activities; if you cannot sleep well, it will affect your productivity also increasing stress level and vitality of your body.

For all these reasons, it is very important to learn more about mattresses prior to purchasing one.

In this short article, I will review the most common product types, their size as well as their firmness. To top it all off, I will provide some good reviews that will help you make the right purchase.

The most common mattress types

There are many types of mattresses and sometimes, it’s really hard to keep a track of them all. Each day new technologies are pushing this industry forward and it shows in the number of products available on the market.

Nevertheless, there are some of the more popular and less popular options. Here are some of the best mattress types you can buy.

Open spring mattress

This product is also known as an open coil mattress. This mattress type is specific as it has one wire that stretches throughout the item. Because of that, it can be really problematic for couples as every movement is felt in the other parts of the mattress.

Although this product provides less support compared to some new models, it is very inexpensive.

Hereby that activity we are talking about none other than surfing.


Yes, you read it right and if you aren’t scared of water then just think about surfing for a moment, playing with the waves of the ocean and moving along the wind, surfing your heart out. Wouldn’t it be just amazing? Well, if you do find surfing to be a fun activity and if you’ve planned to go surf this week on your trip then here are a few things you need to know in order to get the best out of your surfing experience.


1- Get a quality board

First of all, you need to focus on buying the best possible surfboard product for yourself. Don’t worry, we aren’t asking you to spend thousands of dollars on a surfboard, it’s just that you need to be careful while buying one. You cannot just buy any board you see, in fact, you need to focus a lot on the quality of board you are buying because you don’t want to see it broken halfway while you are surfing. The most important thing is to focus on the material of the board and how strong it is. After you are confirming that the board is strong, you can then go for the looks etc.

Limiting Stress In The New Year

Wow – I cannot believe this year is almost over! It has definitely gone by in the blink of an eye, but it has been a pretty stressful year. I am not one to make a ton of New Years Resolutions, but this year, I really want to focus on limiting stress in the New Year. I believe that our lives are too short to live in stress and to do the things that we do not want to be doing. If you are in a job that you dislike, if you are consumed with stress, and if you are ready for change, follow me on this journey of limiting stress in 2019. I am very excited to focus on my family and be able to soak in all of the precious moments and memories that we create over the next 12+ months (and hopefully longer). Here are a few ways that I am limiting stress in the New Year:

Wrap Up 2018 To Do’s

Before you get started, you need to make sure that you wrap up the to-do list that you have in 2018. Is there anything you need to get done? Make sure you do not carry over unwanted stress and tasks from 2018 to 2019 because the point of this is to limit stress, not increase it. Look around you and figure out what will cause you stress. Do you have a garage that needs to be painted or a fireplace that needs to be repaired? Maybe you have something that has been on your to-do list for years and you have not gotten around to it. This is a great time to finally get it done because whether you know it or not, what you do not have wrapped up is consistently hanging over your head, especially if it has been on your to-do list for a while.


Create A Game Plan

Create a game plan for the year. What goals do you have? What are you focusing on? Do you want to build up your business, focus on family, or do both at the same time? Whatever your game plan is, write it down, in order to keep yourself on track throughout the New Year.

Earth Mama Organics NEW Mineral Sunscreen

Just what you have been looking for – a new mineral sunscreen family from Earth Mama Organics – 6 products – thoughtfully created for adults, kids, and babies. These are made with the most premium and safest ingredients available – they are reef-friendly and non-nano as well, which means that they won’t be harmful when worn into fragile ecosystems. (So much better for the environment, I can’t imagine why all brands aren’t doing it at this point.)

What’s IN these sunscreens is just as important as what’s NOT. If an ingredient is available organic, that is what gets used.
