Waypoint Goods Travel Scarf Giveaway

If you know me personally or read my blog, you know I LOVE to talk about and share products that add value to my life, save time, or just overall are a game changer. The Travel Scarf from Waypoint Goods is just that. I love the functionality AND look of this scarf.

The Travel Scarf has a hidden zipper pocket to keep your travel essentials close by. Personally, I found it most helpful to have my ID and chap stick tucked away safely in the pouch, while still being easy and fast to get to. I'll also stick my earbuds in the pocket so I don't have to dig through my bag, mid flight, to find them. I received the Waypoint Travel Scarf in black (which is always my go to) but I have my eye on a few lighter color ones to travel with in the Spring/Summer months.

It's called the Travel Scarf, but it should really be called the 'everyday' scarf because it's cute and functional. It's a mom's best friend. It can hold tissues, hand sanitizer, a granola bar, money, credit cards and more. I will probably wear this well into the Spring time just because it's so functional.

Want to check it out for yourself? Waypoint Goods was nice enough to offer up a free scarf to a lucky reader! Please enter below!

The giveaway will end on January 18th. Once I reach out to the winner via email, they will have 48 hours to respond with their contact info. If I don't hear back within 48 hours, I'll select a new winner. Must be 18+ to enter. Good luck!

Bear on a Bike Book Series

My 5 year old likes books. My 2 year old LOVES books. He will sit on my lap and let me read him 10 books in a row. Or he'll sit on the couch and flip through several by himself. It's just the sweetest thing.

One of our favorite series of books is by Stella Blackstone. When Max was young someone gifted us 'Bear on a Bike' and we've been hooked ever since. The Blackstone writes these books is in rhyme, and I'm not sure how, but my husband and I usually read them as a 'rap,' which gets the boys really into the stories! Here are our favorites:

Bear's Birthday

Would love for you to share your favorite book series in the comments below!

7 Gift Ideas for Moms Who Travel

I think these items should be on the holiday wish list for any woman who travels for work or fun!

Travel Size Beauty Sets
When traveling, I like to pack light, and usually just a carry on, so I'm held to the TSA rule of only having 3.4 ounce containers of liquid. I love having travel size versions for all of my favorite products so I can feel like myself when on the road. Travel size beauty sets are also a fun, low risk way to try new products without investing in a full size you may not like.
I'm a huge fan of IT Cosmetics (check out What's in my Work Bag?) and find they always put out amazing beauty sets, especially around the holidays. Check out this IT's Your IT Girl Super Squad 7-piece makeup & skincare gift set, which contains 3 full size and 4 travel size items.
Or this Heavenly Luxe Must-Haves 5-Piece full size brush set + travel case. Traveling or not, this brush kit is amazing, containing everything you need for a full face makeup session. The case is so darn cute and functional. It will definitely keep your brushes in great shape and prevent them from getting makeup all over your suitcase.

Check out IT Cosmetics stocking stuffer items as well. You may want to snag a couple of these for presents! 

Nice Luggage
I usually buy my luggage at TJ Maxx but you can find some highly rated luggage sets on Amazon right now. This is an AmazonBasics spinner set for $129, which is a great price for a set like this. I always like to get a color besides black so my bag stands out!
Travel Scarf
I'm so in love with my new scarf from Waypoint Goods. I can't believe no one has thought of this concept sooner...a scarf with a pocket! This makes it easy to have your drivers license or passport, cell phone, keys, and my favorite, a lip balm, handy at all times. I hate when I get settled on a plane and then have to drag my bag out from under the seat or from the overhead to get my cell or chapstick. With a Waypoint Goods travel scarf, everything is easy access in your scarf. I think I'm going to use this scarf in the summer too. Planes are always so chilly and I can't NOT have all my important items close by - this scarf has spoiled me! They have a large selection of solid colors and prints. If you join their mailing list you can get 10% off your first order. I'll also be hosting a giveaway soon!
Tech Accessories
If you know someone who likes monogrammed items, Mark & Graham have really unique travel gifts. I personally like the Leather Charter Roll Up to keep cords organized in work bags and the Power Up Lightning to USB Key Chain. This key chain can charge your iPhone and also has a USB drive. Mark & Graham offer free personalization as well!

Packing Cubes
When my mom first got these for me I didn't think I would like them. I was wrong! Packing cubes are awesome for keeping your luggage organized while traveling. I keep them in my luggage at all times so they are handy for all of my trips. Makes it much easier to unpack when your clothes are organized in cubes!
Foldable tote bag
You never know how much room your souvenirs will take up in your suitcase, or if you'll be able to sneak away to go shopping for yourself, so you'll want to pack this tote for all trips in case you need extra room! This is also great just keep in the your car for groceries. This one specifically has amazing reviews on Amazon. This would make a great stocking stuffer!

Noise Cancelling Headphones
Nice headphones can be key for relaxing travel. Crying babies and chatty seatmates sometimes need to be drowned out on planes, and these highly rated headphones can do the trick!

DoorDash Review & Giveaway


Although I don't live in the back roads of Michigan, it does seem to take awhile to get companies like Uber, Lyft and Grubhub to catch on in my area. Recently we received a mailer to try DoorDash in my area and we are HOOKED. When in a pinch for a last minute dinner, or snowed in like this past Monday, DoorDash is awesome.

You can order from or download the app for iPhone or Android. From there you input your delivery address and it will tell you restaurants available in your area for delivery. It's that easy!
I think the coolest feature is the group ordering option. Being a sales women, I frequently cater in lunches for my clients. DoorDash lets you start a group order with a spending limit, and you can share out the link to people in your group. This way I don't have to get everyone's order, they just pick what they want and I can pay.

If you've been reading my blog, you know I'm obsessed with anything that makes life easier. I've been loving having DoorDash as an option in my area. The less time I have to worry about dinner in a pinch is more time I get to spend with my boys!

I want to share my love for DoorDash with a lucky reader! Please enter below to win a $25 gift card from DoorDash! I will select a winner November 21st. Once I reach out to the winner via email, they will have 48 hour to respond with their contact info. If I don't hear back from them, I'll select a new winner. Good luck! If you don't end up winning, use this link to get $3 off your first 5 orders!
