Fit & Fresh Deluxe Insulated Soft Cooler Bag for Game Days

As we approach spring, we also approach outdoor sports season, picnics, camping and outdoor concerts. If you are like me, I am packing meals to go often for such events. I love small coolers, so deciding on the right cooler that holds all I need, keeps foods cold and is easy to clean can be hard. I think the hardest feature to find in most coolers is extra pockets and that I can easily clean it. I found this soft cooler from Fit + Fresh. This is a soft cooler that holds up to 24 cans! That is only 2 of many great features!

The best way to describe this cooler and all it can do for you is to simply make you a long list:

  • It is soft and has a comfortable shoulder strap
  • The colors and design is gives it a modern and classy look
  • It has extra storage with front and side pockets and a top bungee
  • Easy access port from the top to keep coolness inside
  • The inner liner is removable- aka a very cleanable insert!
  • The insert is a hard liner so no leaking
  • 3-layers of insulation to keep foods cold
  • It holds a lot – up to 24 soda cans
  • Made with a stain-resistant fabric
  • Made in the US (Rhode Island) and available on Amazon

The Fit + Fresh coolers are perfect for the beach, campsite, tailgate, sports event, road trip, and beyond! Even packed full, it is comfortable to carry and gets a lot of compliments on the style. I am in love with the removable hard liner because I can easily clean it.

You can find many coolers and accessories in the online store on Amazon. Get yourself ready for the outdoors this spring and summer and shop Fit + Fresh bags.


Stay warm outdoors under the Mozy Wearable Blanket

Stay warm outdoors under the Mozy Wearable Blanket

As a Mom and also working at the local high school, I have had to spend hours outside in very cold weather. I have attended a sports event on a cold day and brought my stadium blanket, only to find that it is impossible to warm up when sitting on cold bleachers. To make it worse, if I have to get up to move over, use the bathrooms or go but a coffee, I have to remove myself from my blanket and start all over when I sit back down. If this sounds familiar to you, the Mozy wearable blanket is such a game changer when attempting to stay warm outdoors. It even came in handy during our freeze this week when I had to head out in the yard to clean up after the dogs.

The outer shell is waterproof and even flame-retardant around campfires. The inner lining is fleece. Wind and cold bleachers cannot penetrate this blanket. The top to bottom velcro is adjustable so once secured you can adjust out to move your legs and walk or wrap tighter when sitting still and you want to stay snug. I can wear my Mozy to sit at a campground, watch an outdoor game or even do yard work in winter weather.

Oh – and you can collect velcro patches like my Let’s Hike patch I chose for my Mozy! This blanket is the best thing I have experienced for outdoors in a long time. The amount of warmth is 500 times better than a stadium blanket and I believe that claim! From the first moment you try yours on, there is no doubt that the outdoor cold weather will be less stubborn from the waist down. I will need a second Mozy now for my RV and hiking bag!

VitaSea Mineral-based Suncare Products

VitaSea Mineral-based Suncare Products

When it comes to sunscreen, perhaps running to the nearest retailer and looking for a bottle of a high SPF that’s a decent price has been your go-to strategy on deciding what to buy. I can’t remember the last time I shopped for sunscreen like this. Many sunscreens actually have harsh chemicals and not just harsh on your skin, especially after a day in the sun, but harsh on the environment as well. Brands like VitaSea are what I seek out and they really won’t break your bank either! If I am going to lather a sunscreen on my skin for hours a day then step into the water with sea life or other swimmers, I make sure the decision is a responsible one.

The first place to start is looking for mineral-based sunscreens and ones with ingredients that are clean and have added nutrients for your skin. For example, VitaSea is mineral-based and uses kelp and Vitamin E & C. These are fantastic ingredients for sun-tired skin of all types. Their lotion goes on so light and rubs in very well.

Why mineral-based sunscreens? If it is not mineral-based then it is chemical-based. The active ingredient in most mineral sunscreen is non-nano zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These are best for the skin and have the least impact on reefs and marine life. The added sea kelp is very sustainable and has great skin nutrients. Make sure you know what is in your sunscreen before committing to using it as much as you will this year. You can learn more about VitaSea by visiting their website.


Keep your laundry separated when traveling with the NOMATIC Laundry Bag

When you travel frequently you learn how to pack lighter with time. No matter how I try to control it, I seem to fit less in my suitcase on the way home then when I arrived. Even when I am at a destination with little shopping, my travel bags seem fuller after. Typically, it is the dirty clothes I am trying to keep separate from my clean ones. I can’t wait to see the benefits of my Nomatic Laundry Bag next trip.

It folds up so small while packing to leave. Once at my destination, I can hang the bag and keep dirty clothes organized away from my clean clothes. Once I leave, it collapses around the dirty clothes and fits right into my travel bag for the trip home. Once bak home, I can easily remove and head to my laundry room to wash them all.

The mesh design makes it collapsible and like my other Nomatic products, I am sure it will last because it is made well. This NOMATIC Laundry Bag is designed to fit perfectly in the shoe compartment of the 40L Travel Bag for camping and climbing trips as well. Shop Nomatic as we head out of this season and closer to travel and camping season.
