'Tis the season for hoping your gift-filled luggage squeaks by under the weight limit, praying you don't miss your connecting flight and hurrying up just to sit still in traffic with everyone else who at that very moment does not seem to be embracing the spirit of the holidays. Of course, spending time with friends and family over the holidays is good for the soul and if it comes with a few travel related hiccups that's okay. We've compiled a list of a few products we think will make your time spent en-route to your final destination a bit more enjoyable!
You're probably familiar with their uber popular down blankets that pack up small, keep you warm and look super cute, BUT we're even bigger fans of the Rumpl Puffy Poncho. Put the hood up, sit back and enjoy a cozy nap the next time you board a flight with this fab find. And, if it's cold and snowy where you are headed, this poncho is made to keep you feeling as snug as a bug in a rug despite the harsh winter elements.
With a smooth ride, TSA approved locking device, a built-in USB charger AND an internal laundry bag, packing for your next trip will be a breeze with this celebrity favorite luggage brand. The minimalist look may be pleasing to the eye but it's the amazing internal storage and did we way BUILT IN USB CHARGER...oh yes, we did. Well, we're just that excited about this amazing feature. No more searching around the airport for a free outlet because you can't call an UBER with 1% battery on your cell phone. Away luggage is a real game-changer when it comes to making travel easy peasy.

With educational games and age appropriate content this tablet for children is every parents dream come true. It's affordable and practically indestructible -- so you don't have to worry about your toddler breaking your cell phone or cracking the screen on your own much more expensive device.
This essential oil travel kit is ideal for long car rides and vacations. Lavendar will help ease the stress of holiday travel. Wild Orange is a trusted purifying agent that helps protect against seasonal threats (so long travel germs!). Peppermint will help you breathe easy and can be a helpful remedy when it comes to upset stomach. Aroma Touch willl help relax muscles and soothe achey joints, something we've all experienced after a long travel day. Be prepared this holiday travel season with a few of the staple doTERRA essential oils and blends.
Head straight from the airport to a must-see tourist destination or a swanky family dinner in these designer-inspired compression socks. These socks will increase your circulation, helping you avoid swelling and the discomfort that comes with it when traveling. You'll feel good as new when you touch down at your final destination and you will look uber cute, too! And if you're spending your holidays cooking, preparing for guests or shopping all day, compression will help energize your legs and ease pain associated with being on your feet all day. Don't sacrifice style for comfort when you can have both while traveling with Lily Trotters compression socks.

Everyone knows it can be tough to motivate in the cold months of winter. Waking up early to crawl out of a warm bed when the skies are still dark and the temps are close to freezing can feel pretty impossible...and that makes a lot of sense.
The sunny days of summer bring challenges of their own, but we don't often hear about how people struggle with fitness during this time of year. If you're having trouble staying committed to an exercise routine right now, you are definitely not alone. We thought we'd share a few IG accounts that we find inspiration from year-round. These women are relatable, unstoppable and transparent about all things life. Give them a follow!
As many of you know, we're major fans of women who chart their own paths by starting businesses and supporting women's specific initiatives. Gina Lucrezi, founder of Trail Sisters, checks off all the boxes when it comes to #unstoppable women entrepreneurs who are making an impact in their respective communities.
Trail Sisters is a women’s trail running community and online journal. The TS mission is to increase women’s participation and opportunity in trail running through inspiration, education and empowerment.
We're excited to introduce Gina as the first woman featured in our 'Women-Led' blog series! (Hopefully, many more amazing women to follow.)
