The MESAY 2.0 translator: Our 2018 Must Have Travel Tool!

One of the greatest challenges of traveling is the language barrier. It can mean the difference between having your taxi driver drop you off at the right destination, understanding the food you are eating or even possibly offending someone. I find it a sign of respect to be able to at least communicate basic words when entering a new country, but this can be difficult for someone like me who bounces all around the globe. I currently know pleasantries for five different languages other than my own, but at times that’s not enough. While in France, knowing how to say please, thank you and hello doesn’t get me far when trying to give an address to a taxi. I need to be able to communicate more!

CINEMOOD - The Latest Must-Have Tech Toy for the Whole Family!

Whether you travel around the globe (like our family) or head out short trips or “staycations” it can be hard to know what to pack. We have been circling the globe for almost two years now and it can still feel like we just aren’t quite packed right or that we are missing something. Over time I have become a much better packer though and as a mom I am apparently pre-programmed to make sure I have every possible necessity for any possible situation (you just never know when you might need to MacGyver something out of two pencils, a baby wipe and your kids chewed up gum they handed back to you).

#MeaningofLife - Bonding Through Music

I participated on this campaign on behalf of Mom It Forward. I have been compensated for this review, all opinions are my own.

If Music Brings Us Together, Then The "Meaning of Life" Album Will Make Us Dance!

For as long as I can remember music has moved me. It has a power over me that can completely change my outlook, my whole day and even my emotions. I remember the exact moments I heard “new” artists and when fell in love with their songs. I especially remember this with Kelly Clarkson. It feels as if her music has been with me the longest and I almost can’t remember a time I wasn’t blasting her songs on the radio.

MindKoo Unicat Headphones – This year’s Best Stylish Gift and Companion!

Our family always tries to pack as light as possible, but we all have our “must pack” items that go with us everywhere. All of us can agree that music is important for our journey and we have to have headphones to listen on planes and car rides. My daughter has taken this to a whole other level though with her MindKoo Unicat Wireless Headphones. Not only does she look incredibly cute every time I look back from the front seat of a car, but these adorable headphones are also super practical and perfect for travel.
