Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are have a wonderful time with family and friends. I was thinking about all the traveling that I will be doing over the next few months and I always like to try and keep my consistent schedule with the types of food I eat, workout out schedule, being able to paint/ sketch on the go but also being able to treat myself to a massage while traveling etc. I came up with a list of apps or memberships that you should definitely check out if you are traveling for the holidays or travel a quite a bit but want to keep to your daily routine that you have at home while you are on the go. I will definitely be using them!
Create on the go
So, see the huge sketch pad I have in my hand in the pics? I got it while I was in California visiting family and I am able to paint while traveling or on the go. It is 15 x 11 in. and you can use pencil, charcoal, pen & ink, acrylics, pastels & watercolors. Plop on a park bench while traveling, pull out pencil and start sketching away..
**Oh, just in case you are wondering what the bold & underlined words are...I link products that you can shop on each hyperlink [click when you see a word highlighted/bold/ underlined] & you can also go to the 'Anything Art' tab and everything is linked for you as well.
If you have never picked up a charcoal or painted I got you covered. Lynda.com is a great site that teaches you how to do anything and everything through tutorial videos and is great to learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals. 30 day free trial to try it out. yass!
Workout on the go
I personally have do some sort of workout while traveling or away from home. [ Unfortunately, I cannot bring @bodybyro with me. pfft.] Class Pass is a fitness membership that you can access in 39 cities in the US. Yes and Yes! There are different packages depending on the number of classes, you can stream video workouts through Class Pass. Right now, there are doing a special for $9 so make sure to check out it out here. I I also use MapMyRun app which will log mileage while bike riding outside, running etc. You can also look at previous routes that people have saved and follow those and also interact with others that are also on the app. Who doesn't love a good challenge?
Beauty on the go
Getting your hair done at your hotel, nails or getting your makeup done in the comfort of your home or aunts house for that big family event? I found out about the 'GlamSquad' App when I was at NYFW. GS offers on-demand beauty services from 6AM to 9PM in New York City, Hoboken, Jersey City, Los Angeles, Orange County, South Florida and Washington D.C. Metro. There is also Priv App that is a beauty & wellness app that offers massages, nails and the list goes on from 7am to 10:30pm. So far they offer this in NY, LA, Austin, Miami, Phoneix, Chicago, Hamptons, OC and London. For you beauty gurus/freelancers, they are looking to expand so apply here if this tickles your fancy. I hope both come to Charlotte, NC. In the meantime, if you are looking for recommendations on best blow out etc. then feel free to comment below in the comment box.
Food on the go
Thrive Market is an e-commerce membership-based retailer offering natural and organic food products at reduced cost. If you are on the go like me then having the convenience of ordering a few things to bring with me on the road is so convenient and if you are staying somewhere for a long length of time then you can have your order shipped to your hotel or guest home just so you are able to keep consistent on feeding your body good stuff. Doordash App and UBEReats are both online food delivery companies where you can order food from your favorite Thai restaurant down the street but sitting in your robe at your hotel or families house sounds like a better idea!
