From skincare to email marketing....here's where I share all the things I really, really like.

If you've followed my journey over the past decade, you know that I've evolved from a clothing (jewelry, makeup, home decor) obsessed person, to someone embracing minimalism in a 750 sq foot apartment. This is in part because of the duty I feel to our environment, but also because I firmly believe that owning less means less stress.

And so, where does that leave me in a world full of affiliate marketing and "influencing"? My commitment to minimizing waste prevents me from constantly buying new stuff, and my morals prevent me from recommending stuff just for a paycheck.

The products on this page are products I truly use and love. I do not accept payment for product placement on this page. However, in some cases I may receive a small commission if you purchase an item through a link or code I've shared here or on my blog.

The money I make off these referrals support my Shoes for Activists Project, as well as help with my Personal Pledge, which is my monthly financial commitment to direct community care. You can learn more about them on my Giving Back page,

I hope you feel confident that I will always do my best to be transparent about what I recommend, and that my opinion is never paid for.

There are a lot of reasons to love this tumbler, three of them are: 1. The oversized straw helps you consume more water effortlessly. 2. The 24 oz size is perfect for upping your consumption. 3. The double-walled insulation keeps your drinks cool.

In my experience the secret to staying hydrated while traveling is bringing your own bottle. Since we travel light, though, I can't justify bringing my 24 oz tumbler. This Vapur Water Bag is the perfect solution! It's easy to refill and use throughout your trip, and easy to roll up and store when not in use. It can also be handy to serve as an ice-pack or warm water bottle if needed.

If you're searching for the perfect work-from-home shirt, this Sweaty Betty sweatshirt is it. Cuff the sleeves and it's all business on the top for your 9AM Zoom call. Then it's all cozy comfiness and thumbholes on the bottom. Quickly became one of my favorite pieces.

This is the bag I've used for every trip for the past 8 years. Even 30 days in Asia with all my work + photography equipment and this bag was perfect! I call this my "Magic Bag" because I'm always amazed at how much I can fit, and how well organized it stays. We have never had trouble bringing these bags as carry-on items. For a look at how I packed this bag for a month in Asia you can check out this blog post.

We fell in love with these bags the minute we saw them! The interior section has built-in packing cubes, and a picket to organize all your work items. It truly has a spot for everything and is an easy carry-on or personal item for most airlines. The size is perfect for weekend getaways or lighter trips.

A fanny pack? Really? Yes, really. We laughed at our selves pretty hard when we invested in one of these for our first big trip --- but it's come with us on every trip since. I can easily use it as a purse for our nights out on the town, but it's multi-function for a small day pack, keeping stuff in at the beach, or even using at the airport for passports, tickets, and other essentials.

This set is a great value, and serves as two tools in one. The selfie stick, while cliche, is actually really useful for getting better angles and this one can tilt and rotate (fancy!). I love that this one can be converted to a quick tri-pod -- perfect for travel photos!

Packing cubes are the secret for a well-organized bag, even if you're using a large rolling suitcase! I recommend compression packs, which will take up less space, and voiding brands that have mesh inlaid (it usually rips!). These ones are great and can fit so much! I'd suggest getting a couple sets with varying sizes.

Packing Cubes

Along with the packing cubes I love these ones with a slimmer profile. These are great for organizing your sock, underwear, and swimwear as well as toiletries or miscellaneous travel items. This set comes with three different sizes that seem to always fit my stuff perfect.

One of my secrets for packing light is a comfortable, multi-functional shoe. I always bring a pair of the Rothy's Point. They are light and easy to pack and go with anything from jeans to shorts or dresses. I love that they can be tossed in the washing machine after a long trip!

When we travel we like to have a small bag that can serve as a day pack for hiking, packing a picnic, or taking to the beach. One thing we've learned, though, is not to skimp on your day pack! Something with comfortable straps and back venting so it's not sweaty is important. This one is perfect, and is small and light enough that we can still easily pack it inside our Osprey Porter bag while traveling.

An iPad Pro was a huge investment for me, but one I've never regretted! It's worth noting that you probably don't need a pro, most people can probably get by with the more affordable iPad. This blog post has a list of various ways I use my iPad both for fun and for my business.

You'll get so much more out of your iPad if you also spring for the Apple Pencil, which allows you to write directly on the screen! I love it for drawing or handletting, as well as taking notes, journaling, or using digital planners!

Writing on an iPad screen can take some getting used to (here are all my best tips for improving your handwriting on an iPad), but this screen protector gives it a "paperlike" texture that makes it much more fun to write or draw on! It's much less slippery and the experience feels much more realistic.

If you feel like the Apple Pencil is too slippy or want more resistance when you write or draw you might really enjoy these! I like them for digital art, but don't prefer them for writing. If you are someone who wants more friction, though, this might be perfect!

I love these simple silicone sleeves for the Apple Pencil Gen 2. These ones are really thin, so it doesn't make the pencil feel bulky, and it can still connect to the magnetic charge on the side of your iPad.
