Get Organized on Vacation with Travel Packing Cubes!

We recently returned from an amazing trip to Branson, Missouri where we spent five days exploring the beaches, mountains, caves, waterparks, amusement parks, wineries and more!  With such a vast array of events, we needed to bring a lot of different types of clothes and a lot of toiletries and accessories!  Three girls in the house means that we have a lot of stuff and little space to pack it in – so when we received the Evatex Travel Packing Cubes for review, I knew we had a winner! 

What did I think?

The Evatex Travel Packing Cubes come in four sizes and also come with a bonus shoe bag!  These packing cubes fit nicely into one another (like nesting dolls!) for storage, and also stack well with on another when full.  These packing cubes are sturdy, well-made and hold a ton!  What I liked was that I could assign each person in the house, a packing cube based on their needs for toiletries.  Of course, I had the biggest and was able to easily fit in my hair dryer, flat iron, makeup bag, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotions, face wash and a few other random items.  Hubby received the next size and packed it full with this toiletries including his electric razor, body wash and some of his running accessories and then the girls received the last two sizes  – one they filled with their bath products, hair things and lotions and the smallest one, they filled with their Littlest Pet Shop toys for ease of travel.

Natural & Sustainable Bamboo Deodorizer from Ever Bamboo

It’s the most normal thing in America, for when we have something that smells to simply cover or mask the smell.  Candles, potpourri, oils, sprays and anything else we can find on the market.  But how about eliminating odor instead of just covering it?  Even better, what if you find a deodorizer that was natural and sustainable?  Ever Bamboo takes natures fastest growing plant, bamboo , and uses its natural properties to make products that will not just deodorize, but also dehumidify your home (and body!)  I received an assortment of Ever Bamboo deodorizer products in exchange for my honest opinion.

Wearever Mattress Pad with Wings – a Great Way to Save Money!

weareverlogoIsn’t it funny how different two kiddos from the same family can be?  Our girls are night and day in every way they possibly can be – from the way they look (one is blonde hair/ blue eyes and the other is brown hair/brown eyes!) to how they act.  One other big difference is nighttime accidents and potty training in general.  Miss Goose was super easy to daytime potty train.  By time she was 18 months old, she was fully potty trained with no accidents during the day, but nighttime was another story.  She would wake up soaked every morning pretty steadily up to age five.  Miss LadyBug on the other hand, was a bear to daytime potty train, but has never been wet at night since she was 18 months old.  Now that she is six, Miss Goose is having very few nighttime accidents, but if we are going somewhere like a hotel or a friend’s house, we try to take precautions to eliminate any embarrassment for her or messes.  Wearever offers a selection of incontinence products that range from washable incontinence undergarments to mattress pads, as well as an assortment of diabetic socks.  We received the Mattress Pad with Wings in exchange for my honest opinion.

What did I think?

Wearever is definitely a leader in quality incontinence products.  We used the Economy Mattress Pad for Miss Goose’s bed when she was a bit younger and having more frequent nighttime accidents and were so pleased with how well it worked and how convenient it was to be able to wash it and use it again.  The Mattress Pad with Wings is no different in quality as it also performs well!  Fortunately, she has not had any nighttime accidents to test this out, however, our new kitten managed to do that for us!  For some reason, her bed seemed to be a hot spot for him and he decided to mark her bed several times, fortunately we had the Wearever Mattress Pad with Wings in place and her mattress was well protected from the stinky cat urine.  This mattress pad protector lays very flat and the wings ensure that the pad will stay in place without bunching or shifting.  It is absorbent, washes well and discreet.  I love that there is no rustling sounds when she moves around so that her friends have no clue it is on her bed, leaving her with no embarrassing stories.
