Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays…Okay, so reality is, most of us will be traveling during the holidays, and music is one thing that can pass the time and make it a little more bearable to be sitting in the airport or car for extended periods of time. So what’s on my must-have travel accessories for the music lover? Let me share a few of my families must-have accessories…
Take your music on a day trip without running out of battery. With 8 hours of music time and 12 days of standby time, Move has got you covered…but if you do happen to run out of battery, it also comes with a cord to continue listening to your travel tunes. My favorite feature…you can control music and calls directly from the headphones! The headband is ultra-light & comfortable which is what you want for a long day of traveling. Plus you can choose from three modern colors to suit your style or mood: Cayenne (Red), Cobalt (Blue), and Coal (Black).
My teens choice, the Jabra Sport Pulse gets rid of the surrounding noise with the new COMPLY™ foam ear tips. You will get superior sound quality, passive noise cancellation and enhanced bass. Jabra Sport Pulse will make sure that your favorite playlist sounds better than ever and will maximize your music motivation.
The plus for them, since these are sport headphones (both into multiple sports) The built-in heart rate monitoring technology measures your heart rate via your inner ear. Jabra Sport Pulse delivers clinical-grade accuracy and ensures that you are always training at the right intensity level to improve your performance.
Travelpro’s Crew 11 stylish collection is designed for today’s frequent traveler who puts a premium on design excellence, quality & durability. The Crew 11 21″ Expandable Spinner is the perfect bag that fits into most overhead compartments. It embodies all of our patented features, such as the self-aligning wheels, PowerScope handle with contour grip for a comfortable roll. But all of that is only part of why we choose this suitcase. The main reason is it contains an external USB Port to provide power on the go! So you can charge your headphones, phone or anything else via a powerbank!
Okay, I may be old school…but the iPod shuffle has been the best when it comes to workouts and even travel when I don’t want to expend my phone’s battery. Just clip it to you and go…but don’t forget to unclip it when going through security!
Okay, I know what some of you are going to say…we argue about this a lot in our house. But for me, I much prefer Spotify over Pandora. I love making my playlists. I have one for air travel, one for car travel & one for meditation after both..lol. We pay around $15 a month for 4 of us to use premium which also lets you download songs or your playlist to use offline.
Do you have different must-have travel accessories for a music lover? I’d love to hear all about them!

Plan the Ultimate Family Reunion Trip ⋆ My Sparkling Life

There can be a lot of opinions to listen to when planning a family reunion. Different generations and different tastes and preferences can all make it difficult to cater to everyone. There might be a bit of squabbling, but it is possible to listen to everyone’s needs. The most important thing to do is to sort out the must-haves for your accommodation and other elements of your trip. For example, does anyone need an accessible bedroom, or do you need baby supplies such as a crib and a highchair? You can then start to think about the things that would be nice to have, like a pool.
Plan Plenty of Fun
Some people like to plan a trip as much as possible. Others may want to see where the wind takes them. For a big family reunion, doing at least some planning is usually smart. For example, you might want to book some restaurants if you want to eat out during your reunion. Booking some fun activities might also be a good idea. You can also make your own fun, especially if you choose self-catered accommodation where you are free to do what you want.
A family reunion is a good way to bring everyone together if you haven’t seen them for a while. If you want to plan one, try not to leave it until the last minute to allow time to coordinate with everyone.
