Running, walking or any form of working out is so much better with music and because of this, I’m always looking for a way to stash my phone that holds all my favorite workout tunes.  I have done everything under the sun from sticking my phone in a pocket – which, let’s be honest, most of my exercise clothing doesn’t have.  I have even held my phone in my hands (ear phones connected) in an attempt to still get a full workout in for the day.  But recently I was introduced to the TKO Running Belt with reflective trim.  I have used products from TKO before and it’s a brand that I enjoy so I was so eager to try this belt out.  Today I share it with all of you.

The TKO Running Belt ($12.99) works perfectly for anyone that loves a good workout, biking, running, hiking or walking.  It gives you the convenience of having all of the things you would need on a workout – for me that would be my phone and my asthma inhaler, while still allowing you to be hands-free.  This running belt is predominantly black with colorful reflective trim (my belt has lime trim – but available in all black, wild berry, sapphire and lime).  Water-resistant design with two expandable pockets allow you to carry your necessities with ease.  I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and it fit my phone as well as my inhaler in the pocket for hands free use.  The belt also comes with an adjustable waist band which is a plus so that my husband and I both get use out of it and I like that it fits my wide hips.

This very lightweight belt is a great workout buddy and companion.  I tend to drive to forest locations for a good run which means I’ll have my keys on hand at any given time.  This pouch holds not only my keys but the important things I need to get in a good workout.  Not only is the belt adjustable, but it stretches so it makes it comfortable and I like the fact that the reflective trim helps when I’m on the side of the road.  The reflective trim really is a great feature for anyone that takes part in their workout outside of the home.

There are two pockets on the TKO Running Belt.  One is large enough to fit my pretty big phone and the other small enough to hold onto my asthma inhaler and some of my keys.  The belt is well made and the zipper is sturdy and strong.  I’m really impressed with how well this belt has held up with use over the last two months as well as how convenient it has been for me.  It’s nice to know that I can listen to my favorite jams and not worry about having my hands hold everything.  The pocket zips up nicely and I leave it slightly open so that my headphone cord can hang out while it’s plugged into my ears.

Do you hold your music device or other things in your hands while out for a walk?  I did and now I’m glad I don’t have to any longer.  Check out TKO’s Running Belt and get one for yourself via their Amazon Store.

Over the years, Pacifica has become one of my favorite brands in the beauty industry.  With inspiration taken from the ocean and beaches of the islands I call home, Pacifica has easily stole my heart over the years and some of the products they offer consistently make it into my daily rotation for use.  Their hand creams, body butters and fragrances are some of my absolute go-tos and today I’m so excited to share some of my favorites with you.

Pacifica steals my heart as a brand because of what they stand for and the products they create and sell.  They create products that serve women by meeting their needs and expectations while providing products that use safe ingredients.  Their goal is to market positively to women.  They also consider animals by creating products that are not only 100% vegan but also cruelty-free and PETA certified.  And, Pacifica also focuses on taking care of the planet by using recyclable materials, creating less waste and using sustainable ingredients.

Some of the products I’m going to be chatting with you about today are available at Target.  I’m so glad I was able to find the display at my local store and so happy that my island now has a Target so I can take advantage of getting the products in my hands when ever needed.  First, I share with you the Coco Pure Travel Size Makeup Removing Wipes.  These makeup removing wipes are Coconut milk infused natural towelettes that gently cleanse and wipe away makeup, excess oil, dirty and daily pollutants all without water.   I have discussed this particular product on my site before which you can read about here.  The scent of these wipes is entrancing – I love it.  I also love that these are the perfect travel size that can be packed in your carry on bag or in your purse for on the go.

The Super Hydrating Hand Cream Duo Set includes the Indian Coconut Nectar (which is one of my favorite hand creams – EVER) and the Tuscan Blood Orange.  Both are made with moisturizing coconut water – yas!  and they smell amazing.  If you are like me and love a great pick me up scent in the morning, the Tuscan Blood Orange will be a great choice.  If you love the smell of coconut – then hello, you’ll love the Indian Coconut Nectar.  These natural hand creams smell wonderful and help fight the signs of aging while adding deep moisture and protection.  Made with nature’s best anti-oxidant rich ingredients like:  shea butter, almond oil and safflower oil – this Paraben-free handcream is a favorite of mine for a reason and a definite must have for year round.  I keep one in my purse at all times and these little hand creams have been travel companions many times.

Last but not least… the Daydreamer Roll-On Trio.  If you have been following me a while, you know that Pacifica makes some of my favorite perfumes and scents and it’s a brand I consistently use.  The Indian Coconut Nectar (do you see a coconut trend here?) is one of my all time favorites and as a Hawaiian girl – born and raised in the islands, I have a love for the smell of Tahitian Gardenia, because it reminds me of my childhood and teenage years as a hula dancer where I wore the Gardenia in my hair as I performed.  These scents, which also includes the Tuscan Blood Orange are just a great little travel friend, and so easy to use at any time and anywhere.  They use natural grain alcohol and the three signature blends are made with natural and essential oils.  The fragrance lasts and boy does it smell great.

As I mentioned before, Pacifica is a brand that I use consistently and one you can easily find either in my purse or spread across my makeup table.  The brand’s mission and goals are those true to my heart and I absolutely love the products they offer.  Each of the products I mentioned here are available at Target as a part of the “Made to Matter – Handpicked by Target” line and you can also find these individually on Pacificabeauty.com.  Reasonably priced and made with skin loving and earth loving ingredients – Pacifica is a brand I love and support.

How about you?  What things have you tried from Pacifica?  Do you have any favorites?  Some of my favorite scents from the brand include:  Island Vanilla, Hawaiian Ruby Guava, Waikiki Pikake, Tahitian Gardenia and Indian Coconut Nectar.  These scents/fragrances are what you can find through out my household on any given day.  Though, I’ll be honest in saying that you really can’t go wrong with any scent/fragrance you choose and I love that they make their handcreams and body butters in their best-selling fragrances too.
