I am an obsessive organizer with very little patience for inefficiency, so having gear that is easy to use and highly functional is of the utmost importance to me! I am passionate about compartments 🥰. My favorite activities are hiking and camping with my husband and my sweet pup, Indiana Bones 🐶. When I find a product I love, it brings me great joy to share it with others! ♥️
Birkenstock Arizona Sandals
These are the most comfortable and durable sandals ever! They take a little while to break in, but after the initial period they mold to your foot and are perfect. Due to the cork sole they get kind of stinky but if you put some foot powder in them once in awhile they’re good to go!
Ritual Essential for Women Vitamins
Makes it easy to stick to a routine
Ritual is a great company, and a great product. I've taken a lot of supplements in my lifetime, and never really knew exactly what I should or should not be taking. Having a daily supplement that I felt confident was really covering all my bases was a huge relief, and now I don't take like 15 pills every morning lol
Jansport Cool Student Backpack
It’s a classic for a reason!
What can you say about a classic! This jansport has been with me through thick and thin. There are SO. MANY. COMPARTMENTS. Almost, dare I say, too many compartments lol. I took this on a recent trip to Mexico going through security at the airport was rough because I left toiletries in like 3 of the 17 different compartments. I do love that there are reasonably sized pockets on the sides for water bottles, it seems like that's hard to find these days.
Outdoor Voices 7/8 Springs Leggings
Perfect for hot yoga!
These leggings are the best! Perfect for yoga as they have a lot of compression and structure with just enough stretch. They don't slide down, and are high waisted enough for me to feel comfortable wearing them with just a bra. I wear them to hot yoga regularly and they never show sweat! I would recommend sizing up if you don't want them to be super tight.
Danner Explorer 650 FG Hiking Boots - Women's
Great ankle support
These boots are a dream! I have horrible ankles from years of sports injuries, and if my ankles bend in even slightly the wrong way they're sore for days. These boots have awesome support, and I feel super confident on rocky trails when I'm wearing these. They're really comfortable, and as a bonus, super cute!
Nike Free Flyknit Running Shoes
Great for low impact activity
These are my absolute favorite sneakers. It's like walking on clouds! They're so comfortable, really easy to slip on and off, and really cute shoes. Wouldn't recommend for anything besides casual activity as they don't provide a ton of support, but they're great for running errands and low impact activity.
Fitbit Blaze fitness tracker
Great smart watch
I've tried a ton of fitbit products, and found this one to be super complicated! It's great if you want a smart watch that tracks a ton of activity statistics, and you want to see you calendar/notifications/etc on your wrist. I just wasn't really looking for so many bells and whistles. I do like that the watch face lays flat on your wrist and doesn't get in the way during activities, it just ended up being more than I was looking for
Patagonia Better Sweater Fleece Jacket
Perfect 3 season jacket
Love my better sweater! This is the perfect 3 season jacket, as you can wear it on it's own in the spring and wear as a layer or with layers in the fall and winter. Love the arm pocket, and the other pockets are super deep. I don't love the higher neck, but that's just my personal preference.
Outdoor Voices Athena Crop Top
Pretty good, not ideal for larger chests
This crop top is pretty good, but not my favorite OV product. The two things I don't love about it is the band at the bottom is kind of small so it digs in a little bit, and it's definitely not ideal for larger chests because the fabric curves in a lot from the armpits. Super cute and good fabric, but it's definitely made for a specific body type (not mine!)
Fitbit Alta HR Fitness Tracker
Perfect for limited tracking
I've tried multiple fitbit products, and this one is my favorite. It has all the functionality of the smart watches without the bells and whistles. It's easy to read, easy to setup, and unobtrusive enough during activities to be comfortable.
Soylent Cacao Meal Replacement Powder
Perfect meal replacement powder
I love Soylent! I've tried the powder as well as the pre-made drinks, and I prefer the powder because you can A) add it to smoothies and B) control the taste based on how much you add. I've tried the Cacao and the Vanilla, and prefer the Cacao. It's a totally mild taste, isn't chalky or gross at all, and isn't overly sweet like I find the pre-made drinks to be
Fitbit Ionic Fitness Tracker
A little much
This is a great smart watch with a million functions. If you’re looking for something to track a thousand things, and you’re wanting to have workouts, music, Bluetooth etc then you’ll probably like it. For me it was just too much. I prefer to just track steps, heart rate and sleep, so the Alta HR is my preferred device
Ora Organic Green Superfood Powder
Best added to smoothies, very “green” taste
This is a great drink powder full of the good stuff I don’t always get in my diet on a daily basis. It has a generally mild flavor but it’s definitely “green”. It doesn’t mix very well in water, but at least for me that makes it seem extra organic lol. I usually use a blender bottle or mix into my smoothies.
Herschel Little America Backpack
Great schoolbag, not so great for biking
This backpack is really comfortable to wear (great cushioning on the back and straps), but it just doesn't have enough compartments. There are no side pockets for a water bottle which is a HUGE problem for me on a bike! There's a pocket inside for your laptop, but that's it.
care/of Personalized Vitamin Pack
Great design and customer service but...
Unless a vitamin/supplement makes me sick, how can one really tell if they’re working?? I love care/of for potentially the wrong reasons: the website interface is beautiful and easy, the design of the vitamin packs helps me remember to take them, and the idea of it is great. So...who knows, they’re worth a try!
Sorel Joan of Arctic Snow Boots
Worth the price!
So glad I finally pulled the trigger on this purchase. I’d had these boots in my cart for months but didn’t want to spend the money But I’m so glad I finally did. These boots are so so cute, comfortable and functional. They keep my feet warm and dry, have good grip, and are my new favorite winter/fall boots
Dagne Dover Landon Carryall Gym Bag
Everything I've ever wanted and more!
I'm obsessed with everything Dagne Dover does, and I'm thrilled with their whole neoprene collection. This bag comes in 4 different sizes, and I've got two of them! I use the large landon for gym and weekend travel. My favorite thing about this company is COMPARTMENTS...SO MANY COMPARTMENTS. This bag has 4 inner compartments for storage, and a key chain leash that's amazing. It's really cute, high quality, and washable which is awesome for a stinky gym bag!
Patagonia Tres 3-In-1 Parka - Women's
Been my go to for years
This has been my go to winter/fall jacket for years. Being able to just use the waterproof outer layer in the fall/spring and then zipping the extra layer on when it gets colder makes this jacket worth the price! Great, flattering fit AND keeps you warm and dry
