Favorite Product of the Month: Commuter Backpack From Just Porter
I like to bike around a lot whenever I can. When I was younger, I would bike to work and even do my grocery shopping by bike. It’s one of my favorite hobbies and I love to do it. I recently decided to buy myself a good quality backpack that I could take with me during my bike commute. After careful reviewing, I went with a commuter backpack made by a company called Just Porter. I had no knowledge of them until one of my friends showed me their Instagram page, and I saw that they were a backpack company based in Chicago.
If you go to their website, you’ll see that they have 5 backpack styles, which isn’t a lot but they all look very cool. As a first time customer, I got 10% my purchase which is awesome, and I think that goes for everyone who visits the site. The greatest thing about the company though is that they have a buy-one-give-one type program. Meaning, for every backpack sold, a backpack with school supplies gets donated to a child in need. They also explain that they work with those communities to produce the bags and school supplies, which basically means that they’re promoting the local economy.
I purchased an Olive Streeter Backpack and I’m obsessed! It’s spacious enough to carry everything I need, and I really like how it looks on. Most importantly, it comfortable to ride with. I might do an update in six months to let you know how the bag is holding up, but so far I’m loving it.
Favorite Product of the Month: Packing Cubes from Ebags
I came back from a trip to Colorado a few weeks ago and I went with only a carry-on bag. Now, if you know me, you know I tend to overpack whenever I can. But somehow, I managed to pack just under the exceeding amount and I didn’t have to check my carry-on (YAY!). I would not have been able to do this without the packing cubes that I used. These bad boys saved me SO MUCH ROOM and kept my belongings organized and safe. I was able to pack 4 days worth of clothes (no jeans, obviously), which is very impressive for a carry-on bag.
Favorite Product of the Month: Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
My final favorite product of the month has to be Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. This white powder is magical, and here’s why. There are a number of health benefits from collagen, including hair growth, skin improvement, joint strengthening, just to name a few perks. This particular brand of collagen is sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides, making it a natural and high-quality source of protein. I like to mix it with my morning coffee, and since it’s unflavored, you can’t taste a thing!
