See below for some products and partnerships I love. Two of these contain affiliate links.  If you decide to purchase through one of these links, I will receive a small commission at no additional charge to you. For more information, see my affiliate disclosure and marketing philosophy.

Happier Place

I am a Happier Ambassador for one of my favorite companies, Happier Place.  Happier Place is a small business owned by married couple Luci Westphal and Scott Solary. They sell outdoor leisure items and support “outdoor breaks” as a way to bring balance and happiness to all of us. I highly recommend their drinkware, posted below.

Travel Insurance Master

I am an affiliate with Travel Insurance Master. If you want to insure an upcoming trip, this is an easy way to compare insurance companies side by side that Travel Insurance Master considers to be most reputable. Travel Insurance Master was featured in this Forbes article. To check out Travel Insurance Master, click here for my affiliate link or click the image below.


I have an unpaid collab with WandererCoinJewelry. All proceeds from sales go directly to this woman-owned small business!         

 I was gifted one of her coin necklaces and believe you’d love her necklaces. She also sells bracelets, which I haven’t personally tried. If you don’t see what you want in her shop, contact Rachel directly to talk about custom orders.

Bella Vida Candles

Bella Vida Candles is owned by a great family of four. They have eco-friendly soy candles that have a small cult following on Instagram. The best thing about Jess–the face you usually see on Instagram–is that she lifts up and supports other small businesses and people. Proceeds of each sale are now donated to people in need–one time they bought bikes for kids who needed them, and another time they helped a hard-working single mom of three with rent, groceries, and gas money. They named their brand Bella Vida Candles since they believe that they live a beautiful life and want to inspire us all to build a life we love.

Bella Vida Candles sells “sniffer boxes” (sets of 2oz tins) as well as individual 2oz tins so you can try out a scent for 12 hours rather than committing to their larger candles right off the bat. I loved Bella Vida Candles’ 2020 collection of Christmas Candles, especially Christmas Tree, Santa’s Workshop, and Christmas 365. Some 2021 scents I love are Clean Cotton (currently available as a mist), Summer Campfire, and Avocado and Mint. If you follow Bella Vida Candles on Instagram or Facebook, they also do a lot of giveaways and share a lot of positive and uplifting content you won’t want to miss out on. When you support Bella Vida Candles, you are supporting a small family business and its ambassadors, like me, and not a huge corporation.
