Adventuring

I have strong feelings about must-have gear I bring on our camping trips to make the experience the coziest & most enjoyable. I love that all can be found at Backcountry.
Any other outdoor folks live for that first sip of coffee on your first morning camping? Ahh. SO. Good. Those outdoor coffee moments make the whole trip worth it for me. And the views, of course, the views...whether it be mountains, a river, the woods...I'll take it all, thank you. We haven't yet ventured back into the world of hike-in...
I’ve been on trails with almost every style of shoe but never one that was cute & preformed well until I found the On Cloudrock Hiking Boot. Waterproof, comfy, stylish & lightweight.
Hiking and me, we go way back.  I was raised in the middle of the woods...I mean truly, on acres of thick trees and rivers where hiking was just a regular afternoon of play rather than a planned out excursion. My dolls usually came along, too.  The Best Stylish & Lightweight Waterproof Hiking Boots I’ve been on the trails with just about...
Whether you're looking for cute jackets or hiking + camping gear (packs, tents, sleeping bags), or something else for your outdoor adventures, our fav stuff is all on sale.
Kicking off the unofficial start to Hiking Season (yes, I just made that up) with a darn good sale from our favorite outdoor retailer, Backcountry! Right now, they're offering up to 60% off a ton of pieces -- like Shana's beloved hiking rain pants or her end-of-summer staples, otherwise known as this matching pink windbreaker and shorts. But...
Danner hiking boots, in addition to their durability, stability, longevity, waterproofing & comfort...are cute. The stylish factor is a main reason we love 'em.
I bought my Danner Mountain Light hiking boots in 2016, in preparation for a trip. We were taking our two young boys to Iceland and had planned to do it up: explore towns, see natural wonders (read: waterfalls) and do a ton of hiking. Ideally, I needed a hiking boot that was waterproof...but one that wasn't overly heavy or...
Although beach season may be coming to a close, now's the perfect time to take advantage of allll the glorious Labor Day deals & snap up swim + activewear on sale.
Backcountry has quickly become one of our most-loved brands. Not only do they carry the best outdoor gear (I only know this because of everyone's awesome reviews here on the blog...for the record, I'm pretty indoorsy) but they also carry plenty of brands that adventure seekers (Shana) and non-adventure seekers (me) can both appreciate. Exhibit A: these cute shoes....
Hiking in near-constant drizzle is infinitely more comfortable when your legs stay dry. So when The North Face debuted a new version of my old Apex Flex jacket – ‘Futurelight’ — + a pair of waterproof hiking pants, I had to try.
A huge thank you to Backcountry and Shopstyle for sponsoring this post! I learned the value of waterproof hiking pants on our trip to Iceland, oh gosh...five years ago now? I didn't arrive in Iceland with waterproof hiking pants — quick-dry leggings are almost as good, right? — but after a few days of consistently wet legs, I became the...
Happy Tuesday! Backcountry is kicking off the holiday weekend a little early with their huge 4th of July Sale! Take up to 50% now through the 4th and and and...they're currently offering free shipping to get your order by the 4th! Scotti's portable drink table could come in pretty clutch if you're planning on a beach day this weekend. Use...
We go to the beach around sunset to enjoy some happy hour beverages while the kids play in the water. These are the times I wait for ALL year long.
A huge thank you to Backcountry & ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. We're in Carolina Beach--one of our favorite places in the world--this month. The beaches are absolutely gorgeous and we are taking full advantage of our time here. I'd love to say we're able to take in the beautiful sunrises over the ocean, but with two little...
Traveling w/ kids during the pandemic? Risky, but we did it. Our tips, lessons & packing essentials for flying (airport, plane + rental car) that made it (feel) a bit safer.
As someone who loves to travel, this year-long quarantine has given me (among other things) a mad case of wanderlust. The good news is that the more people who get vaccinated and COVID rates go down, the more travel opportunities will start to pop up. We had a chance to fly from Philly to Colorado recently with the...
The best & most unexpectedly wonderful shoes for spring are a sweet pair of Blundstone original chelsea boots! They'll bring out your inner puddle-jumping kid, too.
It’s springtime; the birds are singing louder, the sun feels warmer, and there is increasingly more light in the sky with each passing day. You’re about to go outside to soak up some much needed vitamins after the winter, and as you head to the door you slip on your favorite pair of boots. BOOTS? Surely, you meant sandals. Nope! Believe...
