February Favorites 2015

Each month, I will be sharing my travel favourites from the previous month. The items featured will be ones I can’t travel without and would highly recommend to other explorers.

For the month of February, not only will I be sharing four of my favorites items with you, but I will be sending 50 of you one of these items to try for yourself! My fav items for this month are:

Pinrose – Luxury Fragrance Sachets

Pinrose Luxury Fragrance

Pinrose is a luxury fragrance brand that offers single-dose sachets that are perfect for those with an on-the-go lifestyle. Pinrose uses synesthesia to personalize the buying experience for each customer. You can head on over to their website and take the quiz they have set up which will reveal your ultimate scent based on your personality. Pretty cool, right?

I am currently in love with the 25 Petal Pack that they offer because not only are the super easy to pack in my carry on, but I also get to smell a different kind of delicious every day. Each scent is made up of a combination only the highest quality essential oils, naturals, and synthetics and do not contain phthalates or parabens.


TunnelBear VPN

In other words, with TunnelBear you can stream content in Canada from the United States no problem where without it you will get the “This content isn’t available in the country you’re in.” You can use TunnelBear on your Mac or PC, androit or ipad and iphone

Urban Decay NAKED On the Go

Urban Decay Naked On the Run

Ladies, this one’s for you…or men, if you like to wear makeup…I’m not judging!

The Urban Decay NAKED On the Road travel-ready kit comes loaded with everything you need for a complete day and night time look. It is the ultimate travel kit complete with: six shades of eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, lipgloss, glide-on eye pencil and mascara. All you need is this kit and some brushes, and you’re good to go!

Just Porter

Just Porter Travel Bag

Just Porter is a company that offers more than a weekend getaway bag. For every bag purchased, the company gives a backpack containing school supplies to children in need. The bags are also manufactured in the places where they go which means they support the local manufacturer. On top of that, Just Porter purchases the school supplies, which they give to the children, from the local markets. As a result, they are helping the small local businesses of the places they give.

While you get a quality bag (which comes with a lifetime warranty) you are also helping in the fight for education for all.
