Amazon Prime Day

I am so excited about the huge deals I have found for Amazon Prime Day 2020! I don’t know about you, but there isn’t a week that goes by without an Amazon delivery at my house. There really isn’t much you cannot buy on Amazon, and you can’t beat the convenience! In today’s crazy world, on-line shopping has become a staple in most households.

I’m making this short and sweet because the good stuff, like these Apple Earpods or Bose headphones, will go quickly. Don’t hesitate if you are wanted an item!

Take advantage of the lower prices on items you constantly need, like batteries. Also, start to think about holiday gifts because the lower prices are worth the storage time. I’ve just ordered these black and white check kitchen towels that I LOVE! What a perfect time to change out your bathroom towels to these waffle towels for a spa fresh feel!

I have chosen my top pick’s on the gift board above, which is a clickable shopping board that will bring you right to the Amazon site. Alot of the price discounts are reflected when you add to the cart.

Have fun, and I hope you score some great deals today!

Your Road Trip Essentials Guide

Your Road Trip Essentials Guide 2048 2560 Tammy Caciola

Fashion style blogger featuring best travel luggage ROAM with denim jacketULTIMATE ROAD TRIP PACKING LIST

Jumping in the car for a road trip soon and not sure what to bring along? Road trips are so much better when you’re fully prepared, so today I’m sharing the ultimate road trip packing list to ensure a smooth ride the whole way to your destination!

Outfits

  • LAYERS – layer your lightweight fabrics with cozy sweaters and hoodie sweatshirts. The more comfortable, the better! With the AC vents so close, you’ll be happy you have your extra layers.
  • COMFY DRESSES – skip the tight clothes – a lightweight t-shirt dress or cotton dress is best. Also, wrinkle-free and casual is a must!
  • SNEAKERS – you never know what adventures might surprise you on your way, so make sure to wear your comfy sneaks for any potential stops.
  • SUNGLASSES – don’t forget your shades! You’ll likely be seeing a sunrise or two on your way, so I highly recommend investing in a chic pair that blocks UVA/UVB rays for full protection on sunny days.


Car Essentials

  • SNACKS + VEJO BLENDER – no one likes a hangry passenger! Road trip snacks are a definite must, and you’ll even save money while you travel – it’s a win-win! Bring a mix of sweet, salty, and healthy snacks like baby carrots, nuts, and fruit. Want to get fancy and make a healthy smoothie? Blending on the go has never been easier thanks to the Vejo blender. Make sure to check out my recent post for all the details on this pod-based mixer.
  • MOBILE CHARGING PACK – if you’ll be streaming, texting, taking pictures or working on your phone at all during your trip, you’ll definitely want to bring a mobile charging pack for when phone batteries run low! This pack has wireless charging and substantial capacity.
  • TRAVEL PILLOW + EYE MASK – when it’s not your turn to drive, you’ll be so happy to have these two essentials. Rest up… You’ll be arriving at your destination in no time!
  • EARBUDS – if you want to drown out the sound of screaming kids, loud movies in the backseat, or simply want to listen to your own videos or podcasts, you’ll need to bring your favorite earplugs!


ENTERTAINMENT

  • DOWNLOAD A PODCAST – whether you’re listening alone, with your husband, or with your kids – there’s a podcast for everyone. Start binge-listening to some of the imaginative and thought-provoking podcasts offered on Spotify, Apple, or the podcast app.
  • STREAM YOUR FAVORITE MOVIES – if you’re traveling with kids, especially, you need to have at least 2-3 movies lined up for the long hours in the car.

LUGGAGE

  • ROAM LUGGAGE – looking for premium lightweight luggage that is exactly your style? That is what you will get with ROAM luggage. You are able to completely customize your luggage from the wheel color to the zipper you are in control of the design colors. The quality is top-notch, OPRAH approved, and you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to have yours monogrammed for the ultimate custom touch.
  • LARGE TOTE – large bags can be dangerous and deceiving, am I, right ladies? I end up packing so many useless items in my tote just because it’s large in size! Check out my post HERE, where I feature my ultimate travel tote checklist – items you will¬†actually¬†carry with you and use on your vacation.

Our New Home

If you are a follower of mine, you know I recently moved. We have been remodeling our charming farmhouse style house. It is in a dream location, close to Lake Austin and all of the restaurants and events downtown. Which we thoroughly enjoyed for about four months before quarantine went into place.

We were excited about downsizing and cut our square footage in about half, and the land went from 2 acres to less than 1/2!  The smaller size is so much more manageable and gives us a much closer feeling as a family. The boys are just down the hall instead of out of ear range upstairs.

The interior of the house was beautiful but needed a bit of updating. We have completely changed out the dark wood flooring for light oak, updated lighting, opened up small doorways, and smooth textured every wall and ceiling in the house.

Guest Bathroom Remodel

The guest bathroom was a big project. The room needed to be completely gutted. I knew I wanted the design to be unique and continue the authentic vintage charm the home has.

However, I had no idea where to start. Thankfully I ran across the design firm Light & Dwell. I was thrilled to see they offered a virtual design service. You can read more about their services here.

Working with them was so easy! They made the bathroom design come together like I never could. Mixing metals, choosing the perfect vanity, and tile placement were all done virtually. They hit it out of the park, and I couldn’t be happier with the new space.

As you can see, the previous space was dark and dated. Now the new bathroom is light and bright but in a charming way that seamlessly integrated with our 1960’s home.

We couldn’t be happier and are looking forward to working on other rooms in the home with Light & Dwell.

Mobile Nutrition with the Vejo Blender

Mobile Nutrition with the Vejo Blender 2048 1315 Tammy Caciola

Vejo Blender

Blender – Use Discount Code HFL8Pack

Simplify Your Nutrition

I’ve been a smoothie-drinker for many years and have finally found a blender that’s convenient and fits all of my needs. With the Vejo blender, nutrition meets convenience by offering nutritious blends that take 30 seconds or less!

Take your Vejo to the beach, on a boat, or in a plane because it’s portable, TSA approved and battery-powered, making it easy to blend wherever you go!

Fuel your immunity with Vejo’s immunity fuel to protect against harmful viruses and bacteria.

Good For You, Good For The Planet

According to research, more than 14 million tons of plastic packaging are manufactured in the US yearly. Over 70% of that plastic ends up in landfills. Vejo works hard to shift the plastic paradigm with its gorgeous, minimal packaging and reusable all-in-one blender.

Vejo pods are made from corn and are 100% biodegradable, renewable components that will soon also be water-soluble. Environment-friendly products are so important to me!

Nutritional Quality + Pods

Vejo smoothies aren’t just convenient, they’re fresh and tasty, too! Fruits and veggies are picked at peak ripeness, freeze-dried within hours to preserve taste and nutritional value, and delivered in a 100% biodegradable corn pod to satisfy your tastebuds.

Choose from 3 starter kits ranging from bestseller pods to pre and post-workout pods to wellness and immunity pods! You can even have a consult with their team and develop a custom blend just for your needs.¬† Their best-selling starter kit offers a variety of flavors, including banana almond, pi√Īa greens, clean greens, and pacific northwest tart berry.

What better way to sneak greens into your kids’ diets?

In addition, their iced coffee is one of my personal favorites and only 50 calories! I mix mine with water; however, a milk base is also appropriate. Each pod is naturally sweetened with Stevia for a smooth flavor you’ll love!


 

Vejo Details + How To Use

The Vejo blender is offered in nine different colors and made from soft material on the outside with stainless steel on the inside. It also contains a camera that connects straight to the Vejo app. You will be able to order new blends, see ingredients, and set reminders. So cool, right?!

A blender has never been so easy to use!

After you’ve ordered and received your new Vejo, charge it by turning the blender top upside down to remove the charging capsule and plug it in.¬† Once your Vejo battery is fully charged, add cold water to the fill line and load your pod. Close the Vejo cap and twist it clockwise until you hear a “click.” The device will begin blending automatically for 30 seconds until the light turns solid green. It’s as simple as that!

See my full video how-to guide HERE.


  1. Always have time for a nutritious drink.
  2. Kids love the taste.
  3. 100% biodegradable corn pods, soon water-soluble.
  4. So many blends to choose from. Whether you are looking for sleep or post-workout there is a blend for everyone.
  5. One charge is good for 30 Blends making it perfect for work, play, or travel.
  6. Fruit and veggies picked at peak ripeness, then freeze-dried for ultimate freshness.
  7. Easily connects to the Vejo app for tech options to keep you in the know of what you are consuming and hassle-free reordering.

This blender is a gamechanger! Order yours and let me know how you like it!

Use code HFL8Pack for a free 8 pack of your choice added to your starter pack.

Grocery Shopping Tips To Stay Safe

While the world is sheltering in place, the one thing we all will need to do is leave the house to get is food. When you do have to leave your home, I’m very sure staying safe and healthy is at the front of your thoughts.¬† I’ve gathered some tips and resources below to help you do just that when your grocery shopping.

Choose Your Store Wisely

You want a grocery store that has implemented the recommended COVID-19 safeguards for customers and employees. For me, that store is hands-down H-E-B here in Texas.

Texas grocery chain H-E-B revealed its stores have been preparing for COVID-19 for months. Stores and carts are deep cleaned every day, and partners are given daily training and education on elevated sanitation protocols. They are on top of social distancing, keeping people at recommended 6′.¬† Associates are there to help and guide you to open check out stands. Checkstand partitions are in place to offer a buffer between the cashier and the customer.

H-E-B has uniquely been able to stay stocked, manage social distancing, and even donate $3 million to help with novel coronavirus aid, thanks to a year-round, full-time emergency preparedness staff.

Today I went to the grocery store and was able to buy toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, and bottled water with no problem. The shelves were by no means full, but the was an adequate supply for the demand.

It’s all a little unsettling that we have to take these measures. I do feel at ease, knowing, and seeing all of the safety protocols in place! Now for your side of things to do.

Steps To Take At The Store

  1. Go to the grocery store right when it opens or before. You’ll find more items stocked, have to be around fewer people, and the store will be freshly sanitized!
  2. Go into the store with sanitized/washed hands or wear fresh gloves.
  3. Keep your wet sanitizer wipe with you. Most likely, there will be an option to take one when you enter the store, but just in case. Give the cart a little extra cleaning on the handle.
  4. Keep your phone in your pocket. There is no need to expose it to any germs.
  5. Since your phone is safely away, you’ll need to write out your grocery list on paper. Try to organize your list by the department‚ÄĒlisting all the fresh foods together, dairy, frozen, and such. This way, you will spend less time in the store and won’t need to double back for forgotten items. Doing this also will save you from going down aisles you do not need to. Get in and get out as quickly as possible.
  6. At the checkout counter, if you do not have gloves on, use your knuckle instead of your fingertip. If you still have your wipe, you can cover your finger with that too.
  7. I like to bring my own bags. ( love this washable set of four) I know where they have been, and I have already sanitized them at home, and more items always fit into these larger bags than plastic or paper bags. You will have less to pack into your car and on your counter when you get home, if you use your bags.

When You Get Home

  1. Bring in the bags and set in and set them in one place on your counter.
  2. Wash your hands thoroughly, change your clothes if you feel the need.
  3. Go back outside and spray your car down with disinfectant where the bags were, your steering wheel, shifter, blinker, seat-belt.
  4. Take everything out of your bags and place in one spot, sanitize your bags for your next trip.
  5. As you put items away, wipe them with sanitizer. For fruit and veggies, wash them with soap.
  6. Sanitize your counter where the food and bags where.

I hope this helps and stay safe and home. We will get through this day-by-day and together!

7 Simple Tips For The Ultimate Staycation

7 Simple Tips For The Ultimate Staycation 810 1080 Tammy Caciola

her fashioned life staycation arrive hotel

 

My Staycation At ARRIVE hotel

My husband and I both have hectic work lives making it hard to get away. He can get called out of town for work last minute, making it hard to plan ahead to take advantage of lower airline rates. Childcare is also a challenge without family in town for couples trips. However, we started taking a spur of the moment staycations, and that has been a game-changer! So when The ARRIVE hotel reached out to me to come to stay at there new hotel on the east side of Austin, I knew it would be a great fit!

Checking In

Refreshingly, everything is done a little differently here. First, there is not a huge hotel lobby. The check-in desk is discretely located to the side of their gorgeous restaurant, Vixon’s Wedding. I was pleased to be offered locally made waters and cocktails (some of my current favorites)¬† from vintage ice-chest.¬† After they give you your keys you are on a text basis for communication the rest of your stay. If you need anything at all, charger cube, ice, towels, valet, you just text your needs and they make it happen.

her fashioned life staycation arrive hotel

The Room

We were given the Kinda Suite room. The modern/vintage decor was beyond cute! Think, concrete ceiling, luxe wallpaper, natural woods, and a crisp modern tiled bathroom. The vintage touches, such as the retro Bluetooth radio, mini-fridge, and artwork, were perfection.

I loved the conveniences the room had like Apple TV so that you can stream your shows, and the cute coffee table books to browse.  It really was all about the natural lighting though! This room had multiple floor to ceiling windows that lit up the space beautifully!

This is also a dog-friendly hotel, so you have the option to bring your pup! Austin is such a dog-loving city, and I do not believe there is a patio in town that dogs are not welcome.

 

Restaurants & Cocktail Bars

ARRIVE is not only a fabulous place to stay, but the restaurant and bars attached to it are also some of the best in Austin! I had been to Vixen’s Wedding before I stayed here for drinks, so I knew the decor and vibe were next level amazing.¬† However, I hadn’t eaten there before. We had the tasting menu which is multiple courses of chefs choice appetizers, entrees, and a dessert. The food is Goan Portuguese inspired. Everything was so good, but the crudo, fried green tomatoes, bread, and duck stood out for me!

After dinner, we went up to The Gin Bar to have specialty cocktails on the open-air patio. Heaters and are there for warmth in the colder months. In addition to the cozy seating areas around gas fireplaces, there is bar seating overlooking the view and Lefty’s Brick Bar.¬†

Lefty’s Brick Bar is definitely a place we love to visit. There is a cute seating area inside with the bar and kitchen but it’s mostly all outside with a rock covered ground, picnic tables, and a fun New Orleans vibe. It is also very dog-friendly, and Austinites know it and love it!

Discount

Right now you can get $50.00 off a two-night stay using this code! You won’t be disappointed!

Sandals 

7 Tips For The Ultimate Staycation

  1. Plan something special. A dinner reservation to somewhere you’ve never been, a local event or concert. Check out the city magazine to see what’s going on. If you’re in Austin, this link will give you the low down.
  2. Bring your chic loungewear, including slippers, silk robe, cozy joggers.
  3. Even the best resorts can have windows that are too bright and walls too thin, so don’t forget an eye mask and earplugs if you’re sensitive to light and sound when you sleep.
  4. Give yourself a pass to relax. Do whatever that looks like for you. Maybe it’s unplugging from your phone, taking a much-needed nap, or reading a book. Enjoy each other and have fun!
  5. Have fun documenting your staycation! Take a selfie with every location you visit.
  6. Bring some champagne or your favorite wine with you! You can also bring your glassware to make it extra special. Just keep it all in your room.
  7. Check your credit card points to see if you can upgrade your room.
