Packing for Disney #DisneySMMC 

I’m A Disney Mom

I was selected as a Disney mom back in December. My heart was really full of emotions I actually felt undeserving of something so big. Also, l was so proud of this moment, especially where my blog has brought me. I felt as if I had just conquered a dream of my wish list. My family and I were so excited to be traveling to Orlando and stay at one of their beautiful hotels (Walt Disney World’s Port Orleans Riverside) and experiencing the Disney cruise (Disney Wonder). Then I decided to surprise the boys with this trip as a Christmas present. The boys would ask me every day “Mommy, when are we leaving?” This was everyday. But, first I needed to pack.

I possess many skills, but packing isn’t one. I’m the type of person that creates a list in my mind. However, I don’t actually invest it into reality. I think many of you can relate to this. I know what outfits and accessories are needed, nonetheless I don’t pack them until it’s the last actual minute. Apart from packing for myself, I have to pack for my boys. I have to make certain that I have all the medications, toiletries and necessities. Especially traveling in the heat I need sunscreen and repellent.

My personal mommy must halves were also bundled in my check-in luggage due to the size. When you travel you must pack the items that you use often. The hair products and feminine products that I use every day. I share a couple of necessities that I require to travel with me to simply have me looking put together. And a makeup bag is a must, be filled with my top makeup brands that I utilize most often. Take what your little heart desires, but do it smart. 

When I travel I want to make sure to plan for cold nights and extremely hot days. One thing I wish to do is pack 3 pairs of sandals. I like to take one pair of shoes that match every look. And comfy sneakers to take on the tour. You really don’t need that much. I have invariably been that type of person that over packed, but not anymore. I make certain to pack the same way for my boys because it can become so overwhelming.

So this time around I tried to pack small and smart. I tried my best as if packing small was even possible. I simply wanted to take one check-in and two carry-on’s for four people. Disney was so kind to send us a Star war carry-on baggage. Which in reality was so helpful we were able to put the boys shoes in that one and in the other one Rogers and my shoes. The check-in luggage had our outfits and bathing suit. I made sure to roll the clothes instead of just folding them. I feel like everything fits better that way. The boys bought their book bags in which they carried, there iPad and iPhone. Having entertainment for my boys is always a big help.The best part about this whole new experience is that I’m able to take my family along. Remember to make yourself happy at all times. You have to enjoy what you love no matter what. Follow my journey, my dear readers (BeautyBeyondFashion_)

AVEENO #BellezaEspontanea

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Aveeno and #WeAllGrow Latina Network. Bedtime and bath time are my favorite times of my day with my kids. These are times during my day that I come to interact with my children on a personal level. Bath time always comes with laughter and joy. And bedtime comes with kisses and love.  

My boys love to play around all the time, especially before bedtime. They seem more alert before bedtime. I’m thinking because most of the time bath time doesn’t relax them. This amazing summer my little ones became fishes, we kept our children very busy with BBQ parties and getaways. I made certain that the boys stayed hydrated and moisturized. Sometimes the sun can cause damage that can take a season to blend away. 

Every night and every morning I tried to keep their skin healthy with Aveeno. If we played along the beach or played under the sun I made sure to apply sunscreen. However, now that the cool breeze is coming in I’m starting to notice the dry patches. The itchy little spots that come out after the summertime dry skin. My oldest son Jayden doesn’t seem to be equally uncomfortable as my youngest. Baby Josiah is a little fireball and anything that irritates him, he will make sure you pick up.  

I love to try new products not just for myself, but also anything that my family can benefit from. Aveeno has become my new helper. I love the way my child’s skin reacts to the smoothing effects of Aveeno.  Aveeno works wonders on mild to moderate skin types eczema Aveeno balm repair is extremely moisturizing. I put this on my 8 and 4 year old sons at night and when they wake up, their skin is soft and clear. Aveeno is not rough and provides immediate relief.

Aveeno is my greatest helpmate mainly because it strengthens their skin. I tend to apply thickly before bed to reduce night time itching. Simply because my sons are no longer infants doesn’t mean I stop helping their skin, it means I have to teach them routines. Hence my suggestions for all moms looking for quality make sure to try Aveeno. Don’t forget to follow my journey, my dear readers BeautyBeyondFashion_
