Colorado Road Trip with Travel Ready prAna

Eleven years in, and the thrill of living in the state of Colorado has not worn off for me.  One of my absolute favorite Colorado road trips is east / west over the Rocky Mountains.  If you haven't traveled this stretch of I-70, you need to add it to your bucket road trip list. Colorado Road Trip This is a frequent Colorado road trip route for my family, whenever we head to Denver for the weekend.  Love the scenery along Colorado's I-70, as it dodges and weaves along the Colorado River in many places. The views obviously change with the seasons, both varying and beautiful.  My husband probably thinks I'm crazy, taking pictures with my phone on the journey.  Every. Single. Time.

Ecoths Gift Guide & Instagram Giveaway [Ended 12/8]

  As an Aventura Ambassador, a couple of years ago I was excited to see the development of their new men's line:  Ecoths.   This great looking mens collection offers the perfect complement to the outdoorsy chic woman dressed in Aventura.  The garments my husband has tried have all been very soft (many of the shirts of 100% organic cotton), comfortable, and include design details that set them apart from any other brands he's worn.

In just their first year of business 2014, they donated over 48,000 meals throughout the US to food banks in their sales reps territories.
