The Ayla & Co. fanny pack is a must have for travel

The Ayla & Co. fanny pack is a must have for travel

It has been years since I was in the habit of carrying a bulky purse. With disc issues in my neck and nerve issues in my shoulder, it is actually painful to lug even a small purse on my shoulders. I have used XS sling pouches or phone cases that hold my cards.

When traveling I tend to find myself needing to keep extras with me all day from sunscreen, extra room key cards, small souvenirs. I can’t spend all day carrying a purse. Now I am excited that fashion fanny packs are a comeback and I love my Ayla & Co. fanny pack.

Ayla & Co prides itself on combining parent-friendly features with simplicity and style. You can carry your necessities or change messes and still look and feel put-together.

The Ayla Fanny Pack is a belt bag that has a removable credit card wallet, a key leash and pass-through pocket that holds a power bank battery. The strap is adjustable from 30” to 42”.

Choose your Ayla Fanny Pack in brown, black or green. Visit Ayla & Co to find a bag for your needs.

Ocio Leisure is loungewear made with organic cotton

Ocio Leisure is loungewear made with organic cotton

There might be few things better than he softest and comfiest loungewear. My favorite brands will be stylish enough to wear in public when I want to be comfy and soft enough to want to grab as my go-to! I have the Classic SoftCore Hoodie and I love the fit and feel! The blue is so pretty and I have already received compliments when wearing it out.

What I love about Ocio is that they have created a brand that is about size-inclusive and sustainable products. Everyone deserves a great fitting, soft and genuine athletic product to wear such as their pants or tops. Ocio describes their own longwear as ‘buttery soft’ and it is! The SoftCore fabric is made from organic cotton, Tencel Lyocell and a bit of spandex.

Ocio makes decisions that are best for the environment in every step of their process right down to the tag. With raw material from India and local knitting done in Los Angeles, their cotton is GOTS certified and made with Bluesign Certified dyes as a Plastic Negative business.


Buying a hoodie is so much more than the best price on a store shelf. We buy them to feel comfort and even better is when it did no harm to our environment in the process. You have to feel the softness and quality for yourself. I am in a medium at 5′ 3″ and it fits great! Buttery is a great adjective for the Ocio hoodie! Visit Ocio Leisure.

Braxley Bands environmentally sustainable and trendy Apple Watch bands

Braxley Bands environmentally sustainable and trendy Apple Watch bands

Slipping my Apple Watch on and getting out the door for the day is much more effortless with my Braxley Band. Not that fastening my Apple Watch is that stressful, but it is just one easier task in my morning routine and a small difference. I have several Apple Watch bands to match my day or clothing. I grab my Braxley Band for everyday use. I can just slip my wrist through and go. Some mornings, I need ‘easy’ like that.

Better than a simple convenience, Braxley Bands are environmentally sustainable and crafted using recycled plastic that is machine washable and moisture-wicking. This band is truly made with care. Using very little resources, the brand makes sure the environment is not harmed in their process. In fact, Braxley Bands has partnered with Trees for the Future, and for each band sold, a tree is planted with partner farmers in forest gardens throughout Africa.

What about fit? A couple of things – they have different sizes, so take a quick measurement of your wrist. If you are not satisfied or anything happens to your band in the first year, they have your back with a replacement warranty. If it stretches out, toss it in the wash to get it back into its original shape. If it feels a tad snug, hold it stretched a few seconds and give it some time, it will eventually mold to your wrist size. I measured my wrist and knew if I ordered a size up it may be too loose. The size I ordered was just a little snug, but not uncomfortable at all. It has now formed much better to my wrist size and stretched to where it needs to be as I have worn in off and on the past 2 weeks.

Ready to support Braxley Bands and order one? Visit the Braxley Bands shop and choose your watch and wrist sizes and begin choosing a color or design. I have the blackout color.
