Traveling with perfume can be tricky for several reasons. Primarily, the worry that you’ll spill it all over your purse and secondarily, there isn’t always an on-the-go or travel-sized version of your favorite scent. Travalo solves both of those problems by offering a leak-proof and TSA-approved product, in a number of stylish colors. The company was kind enough to send me a sample to try out and it’s been a staple in my handbag ever since!
Awake Caffeinated Chocolate:
If you have a coffee drinker/caffeine lover on your list to buy for this year, consider switching it up and giving them Awake Chocolate, pieces or bars of caffeinated chocolate (1 bar = 1 cup of coffee). Awake is based in Canada but you can pick up these amazing chocolates at local stores such as Hess and Winn-Dixie. I can’t believe no one though of the brilliant caffeine/chocolate combo sooner! Furthermore, I’d put the taste of the chocolate up there with Reese’s and Kit Kats (my favorite). It’s THAT good. And as much as I don’t want to share the box Awake sent me to sample, I’m planning to include one of their bars in addition to several gifts I’m giving to others, that’s how much I love it!
Every time I get a new pair of shoes (and even sometimes after I’ve worn them in a bit), I get horrible blisters on the back of my heel and before I know it, I’ve gone through boxes of bandaids trying to keep them from worsening. Sole Goddess ($10+ depending on size) offers a solution to solve this problem, adding an invisible shield between your skin and is something every girl must have in her stocking! I was able to try a sample of the product and plan on investing in a full-size version for both home and travel of the product.

Wild Ophelia Chocolates:
With the release of Catching Fire, the latest installment of The Hunger Games, Wild Ophelia has created a brilliant product that all fans (or non-fans) of THG series would love – The Hunger Games Chocolate Bars! You can buy the entire collection of chocolate featuring all 12 districts for $65 or buy each bar for $4.95. What’s really cool about these bars is that each one is created with that specific district in mind (e.g. District 12 is Mined Salt and Chocolate – for mining).
Wild Ophelia kindly sent 4 of the 12 bars for me to taste and I must say, they’re delicious! Some of the flavors are pretty interesting too (e.g. beef jerky and smoked mesquite chocolate). Such a unique twist on the classic candy favorite! If the person you’re shopping for is a fan of Hunger Games and chocolate, you’ll absolutely want to include it!
