#TryDry - A Product MUST When Traveling

*Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own.*

WAHOO! I got off the island for a jam-packed Halloween weekend in Boston! It was time to explore, shop, eat, drink, and enjoy the mainland for a few days. During the offseason, it is a MUST to get off the island as much as your schedule permits. It also helps to have friends who love to travel and can join the party! 

After taking the ferry and picking up the rental car, then taking the train into the city, there are always a couple of stops I like to make. Yes, that is the normal amount of travel required to get off Nantucket. That alone in itself is its own little adventure. My frequent stops when I make it to the mainland for quick weekend getaways are always: Dunkin Donuts, Trader Joes for snacks, and CVS for all my bathroom essentials. I love CVS and their selection has really improved over the past few years. I always stock up on: 

Besides being the perfect travel size, this Dove Dry Spray keeps me fresh, dry, and lasts 48 hours. When you travel by boat, car, and train on warm Fall days, I definitely need something that is going to hold up for long busy days of travel and adventures. It also helps that it smells good, goes on instantly dry, and there is no mess! No mess is KEY, because how annoying is it when you put on a deodorant and it sticks to your clothes, stains your clothes, and leaves you feeling just awkward. 

Make sure to click on the above and below images to learn more about these products and make sure to pick some up for you, your significant other, or anyone else in your family. The offer is good until November 5, 2016, so STOCK UP and take advantage of this deal. 

Even though it is definitely getting cooler and the days are getting shorter, there are still a few warm days left and you will be glad that you purchased these deodorants. I am glad that I was wearing my Dove Dry Spray on Sunday because it was warm in the city and we were walking around for hours, shopping, eating, drinking, and doing yoga poses in the middle of the historic streets because that is totally normal...Right? I smelled great, felt dry, and was comfortable all weekend long. Becuase the last thing I want to worry about is whether or not my deodorant is working when trying to enjoy a weekend away!

What is your favorite deodorant?

Do you have a list of places that you always stop by when traveling?

Recent Reads...Where in the OM am I?

Almost every night, I curl up in bed and flip the pages old school style through my book of choice! I find reading every night to be relaxing, comforting, and the perfect way to unwind from a long day of staring at 3 different electronic devices. I like to get lost in my books and just breathe...Some nights I read a page and a half and then other nights it could be chapters...It is a ritual that I look forward to and thoroughly ENJOY!

I recently finished Sara DiVello's book: "Where in the OM am I?" Yes, I 100% recommend this book. Before we talk about the book, let us go back two years ago, when I first met Sara.  

Surprisingly we first met on Nantucket at the Nantucket Yoga Festival. This woman is FULL of energy...Always smiling...Powerful...Inspirational...And had me laughing out loud not only in person, but when I was reading the book. If you live in Boston, I highly recommend you look her up...She is always running around teaching, speaking, and spreading good vibes in the community. She is FULL OF LIFE! 

Sara and I have very similar backgrounds, so it was very easy for me to relate to her story. There were so many times that I was laughing out loud and would find myself texting Sara saying..."OMG YES!!! That totally happened to me when I worked in the corporate world... Or I remember that from my yoga teacher training!" We both worked in corporate...Left corporate...Went through yoga teacher training...And now we are following our passions and now we are both a heck of a lot happier!

What I love so much about this book is that it is REAL...laugh out loud...honest...and no filter as to what it is like to work in corporate...what it is like to go through yoga teacher training and work in the yoga world...what it is like to be scared and to be unsure about what the heck you are supposed to do with your life, when you feel lost!

Sara captures the emotion and the logistics perfectly as to what it is like when you decide to make a drastic career change. It freaking takes TIME! It takes time to think and to plan. It takes time to let it sink in. Yes, there are tears, frustration, anger, but also freedom and happiness. Because you have a choice! You are in charge of your own destiny. You have the power to make a choice as to where you want to be and what you want to do. I LOVE Sara for making that choice and sharing her journey. I hope you will pick up a copy and read this great book! 

And if you are looking for some other great reads, here are a few others that I have read over the past couple of months that I definitely recommend:
