Must Have Essentials for Your Roadtrip Adventures

Who says you have to rough it when you're on the road or camping out under the stars? Once you've got your basics covered--tent, sleeping bags, camp chairs, cooking utensils, and first aid kit, you'll want to have these luxuries tucked in amongst your gear.

Coffee, Lighting, and Work Gloves


To get you started off on the right foot for your roadtrip adventures, here are the must have essentials we can't live without. I've also noted which essentials work if you're tent camping versus staying in a cabin or traveling in an RV.

What essentials can you not live without when you're camping?

DIY: Nine Step Fleece Bolster Pillowcases

One item parents receive more than a few of are baby blankets. And, those baby blankets are often the most difficult item for kids to part with. So I decided it was about time to upcycle the cuddly soft blankets into something everyone in the family could enjoy: fleece pillowcases.

Speaking at Snap! 2016 this April

In 2014, I decided I wanted to share my skills with others. I taught a Digital Marketing class at General Assembly and then spoke at Alt Summit in January 2015 and co-taught an Instagram workshop at Makeshift Society SF that March.

This April 2016, I'm speaking to another community of creatives at Snap! in Salt Lake City.

Building Up Isn't as Simple as Not Tearing Down

When we talk of women supporting other women we talk in generalities. We assume that women's behaviors are black and white. Build up versus tear down. Collaborate versus compete. But it's not that simple. Women are just as guilty as men as passive aggressively blocking other women.

Supporting women by building up is more than simply not tearing down


Women bury their actions. Miscommunication. Inconsistency.

Women expect that other women will assume that they misunderstood the other person. They expect the benefit of the doubt. And we need to stop. We need to start calling other women out on these behaviors. And here's why.

Do you call women out when they're communicating poorly? Being inconsistent?

Making Time (or How I Ended Up at Burning Man 2015 for Our Five Year Wedding Anniversary)

We spend so much of our lives putting off what's important. We assume there will always be more time. That we can tell (or show) someone we love how much we care.

This belief that we'll have tomorrow is one we need to turn on its head. If ever there's a time to be mindful and to be present it's now. We can't control what will happen in the future as much as we want. And with everything that's going on in the world today, a tomorrow that looks like today is more and more unlikely.
