As I was walking through Minnesota’s North Shore trails, I started thinking back on the person I was 10 years ago. The person who took the perfect photos on the beach with a brand new Victoria’s Secret swimsuit. Multiple new swimsuits. One for each day. I looked down at my dirty hiking boots and realized that girl is gone. An overwhelming feeling of thanks and gratitude took over. Just like I once hid behind perfect clothes and well-done hair, I had once hidden behind the all-inclusive resort and the false sense of security it offered.
I’m not going to lie, I was born both an outdoorsy girl that also cares very deeply about what shoes she puts on her feet. Yes, I want comfort, but also…it has to look aesthetically pleasing. Judge if you must, that’s who I am. And, now after months of researching hiking boots, I’ve decided to share my findings with others just like me. Here is a compilation of cute, stylish hiking boots for women that are still high-quality and will get the job done!
I grew up loving camping. In fact I was one of those adults who believed anyone who owned an RV was not actually camping. Which, honestly, I still believe. (That might be obvious since you know we camp out of a minivan.) However, I have definitely come to appreciate the amazing benefits of an RV. But, if you are looking to save a little, and sacrifice a few luxuries, I have compiled an amazing list of 13 ways you can camp for free in the good ‘ol USA.
Can I let you in on a little secret? Your stuff used to be money.
All the stuff in your house that collects dust? Money.
Your kids’ toys? Money.
Those sweaters in your closet that still have tags on them? Yup, those used to be money too.
Whether you’re on a Marie Kondo-inspired decluttering spree or you are in desperate need for cash, there is someone out there somewhere that wants to buy your stuff. The key is letting people know your stuff is for sale.
Depending on your personality type, there is a selling platform out there made just for you. These are my personal favorites.
One of my most popular travel posts was 10 US Destinations No One is Talking About and as we plan our Covid-19 friendly travel for the summer, I decided to release the second version of that original post. I’ve done some research and gathered 10 more US destinations that no one is talking about. These are all great family vacation ideas or even just a fun, relaxing getaway for couples!
