Well Hello There! Im a wife, mom, actress and a wilderness of sweets who's wild about fashion, DIY and photography!

It’s My Birthday…New Year, New Me!!!

IMG_2586

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

You guys, I can not tell you how incredibly excited I am to start a new year. I have never been able to really enjoy this day and celebrate it the way I know God intended. You see I am a perfectionist…WAS a perfectionist….it’s a dirty word, I know! My level of perfectionism never really allowed me to see or love myself the way God does. Functioning in this way robbed me of so much joy.

Perfectionism seemed like a nice idea. It meant I would always strive for greatness in every single thing I set my mind to do. Sounds nice, right? The problem is that my goals and efforts are completely unquantifiable. Sure, I’d be working tirelessly and always striving to do my best but, at what expense? I became a pro at picking out my flaws which led to looking past my successes so that I could work harder; get better. Perfectionism always left me disappointed in myself and emotionally exhausted. It was easy to see greatness in everyone else and celebrate them. But, when it came to seeing greatness in myself…..eeeeke, I could not do it! I always saw “potential” and the need to work even harder….get better, so that I would be better, have more joy, etc.

IMG_4299-2.E2

I longed for a release….begged God for it actually. Have you ever been in a season of pruning? The kind of pruning that leaves most doors closed at every turn? The past couple of years have been a time of “no’s.” Now, to a perfectionist this is the worst possible season. My confidence took a nose dive, I began to take refuge in my comfort zones. I was in hiding. Hiding was easier because it meant there was a smaller risk of disappointment.  I even started to lose sight of the things God created me to do. Why?? Because, even though I have a beautiful relationship with God, I felt that I would never be good enough and my efforts would never measure up to be blessed in the way I knew God wanted to bless me. Logically, I understand that this is wrong thinking. Jesus came so that we could have life and have it more abundantly! His sacrifice sets us free….we no longer have to work to be loved and accepted.

What I needed was to hear from God in a big way! Months and months went by and God gently loved me through my heartbreaks and disappointments. He’s such a great parent! Man, I want to be just like him!! As a parent, I’m it was hard to watch me struggle but, he allowed those difficult times to teach me, to help me grow. He showed me that “mistakes” or “closed doors” aren’t tied to self worth but, are merely opportunities for growth and learning. Pure and simple. I am enough right where I am at this very moment! He also showed me….and, this one hurt a bit….perfectionism is not a personality trait but, a way to cope with unpredictability. Yeah, basically I am a control freak and I need to release my grip and trust in HIS ability to love and care for me well.

How could I love God so much and trust in him so little? This one broke my heart. This realization brought me to a cross road. Do I trust God and leap towards what He has for me? OR, Do I stay the course and do things my way?

The answer was simple! I’m ALL IN with you, God! No matter how uncomfortable I am in situations that I can not control. My trust is in you! When I am afraid to take a step but, the peace of God is there….I step because I trust in you!

You guys, once I made this mindset shift I began to hear God more clearly than ever before. You see, I was in a sort of prison. Not the kind where someone else holds the key to freedom. The prison I was in was one that I created along with the help of the enemy’s lies.  I was free to leave at any time! Ohhh my goodness!!! That realization rocked me to the core! Unlock the doors! I’m leaving this joint! I made a choice to actively resist the lies of the enemy and embrace love and the mindset of Christ through affirmations and quiet time. I am HIS, I am chosen by Him, I am loved by Him, I am enough and I needed to start acting like it!

Soooo much revelation. So much freedom. So much love!

God so lovingly reminded me of the call he has on my life, which requires me to push past fear and take many leaps of faith. I have to laugh because I can come up with all of the risks involved in leaping! I still struggle with those thoughts but, I fight them with HIS truths. I remind myself over and over again of God’s love, His plan, His guidance, His hand in mine.

What I have come to realize is that my lifestyle as a perfectionist kept me from enjoying and truly experiencing all God has for me! Sure, I’ve had great successes and blessings but, the chains of perfectionism robbed me of joy and happiness. I often felt alone and unseen. Not by the general public but, by God. You guys!!! Perfectionism was robbing my of the joy of being a wife, a mother, a friend, an actor…..

Not only do I want freedom from this type of bondage for myself but, I don’t want my children to follow in these particular footsteps! I want them to feel the fullness of joy and acceptance. No jails or chains for them because this mommy is breaking free!!

God’s love for us is filled with patience and guidance. He allowed me to walk this road to such a degree that I was ready to leave it behind. Actually, I was ready to Forest Gump this situation and run!!! It was my choice. It took courage and guidance from Him but, I did it and it feels amazing! What a good and faithful God he is!!

IMG_4279-2.E

I am beyond excited about entering this new year of my life! It was always hard to celebrate my birthday because I never felt worthy or excited about “me.” Not anymore! I am free from those chains and boy am I celebrating! I am ready for all God has for me!

With my new mindset I am able to hear God like never before! And, you better believe that I have documented and color coordinated His every word in my journal! 🙂

I hope that by sharing my journey with perfectionism it will help some of you who struggle in a similar way.

The take away…

Perfectionism is a habit. A bad one. And change doesn’t always come easy, or overnight. It’s a choice that will be made a million times over. But it is liberating, and God will walk with you hand in hand, every step of the way. Don’t allow relapses into perfectionism dissuade you from the freedom to love yourself and those around you in a beautiful way….to live the life God intended you to live!

 XOXO,

WENDY

Velvet and Jesus…..

IMG_2273.E

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! I don’t know about you but, I am ready to celebrate! Christmas is in 4 sleeps and I find myself longing for time to slow down! I want to savor all of the sweetness of this season. I have almost finished my Christmas shopping. Giving gifts is the most fun. In our home we have a birthday celebration for Jesus on Christmas Day. So, it’s only proper that I wear an amazing dress to the birthday party of the one who created….everything!

IMG_2276.E

I have been in love with velvet ever since I was a little girl. I can remember wearing a velvet dress, white tights and patent leather mary jane shoes every Christmas. Maybe that’s why I chose this little number. Nothing screams holiday like crushed velvet.

I plucked this Golden Hi-Low Velvet Wrap Dress from the fancy pants designers of Lulus. Besides the fact that it’s absolutely adorable it’s also affordable! You can get this cutie for under $60!

IMG_2285.E

IMG_2283.E

A good shoe can give you all of the confidence in the world. Although I love a black patent leather pump, I am going to give my self a standing ovation for scooping these sparkly ladies off of the clearance shelf of H&M during the summer. I payed $9 for shoes that have me feeling like the ever fabulous Carrie Bradshaw. Little girl Wendy would be proud. 🙂

IMG_2271.E

Christmas is definitely an appropriate time to indulge in great fabrics, sparkly shoes and fun makeup. So, this is your chance! Velvet is a hot fashion trend currently and pretty much everything is covered in glitter. So, head out to your fave stores and leave with only the most Properly Stylish items.

IMG_0142.E

IMG_0084.EIMG_0151.E

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! This really is the best time of the year. Sing those Christmas carols to the top of your lungs, indulge yourself in sweet treats, extend love to everyone around you and wear all of the fancy things!

Blessings to you and yours!

XOXO,

Wendy

thredUP

I have a new found love for ThredUP. Have you ever heard of it? It’s amazing. Online consignment store extraordinaire! This website was created so that consumers like you and me can buy and sell pre-loved clothing and accessories. ThredUP offers over 25,000 brands  for women, children and teens at over 90% off of retail.

I know what you’re thinking…..Do they really have the brands I love? How’s the quality? What about higher end labels, do they offer them? The answers to those questions are… Yes, they have your fave brands, the standard of quality is exceptional, they disclose any imperfections up front and they carry labels like Target, Tory Burch and everything in-between. ThredUP makes shopping fun and easy. You can even shop on your phone using their app. It’s simple, easy and fun!

I recently found some great pieces for myself and my littles! And guess what? This mommy didn’t break the bank! You can see our fabulous finds in the video above.

I adore a great chunky sweater and skirt combo! So festive and cozy.  Shopping for your kids is even fun. No long lines, no fussy babies to juggle, no traffic….you can literally sit in your pjs while the kids play and shop! You can find dresses like Stella’s and add all the accessories your little heart desires. I love buying Ralph Lauren for Liam and you can find some great pieces like the ones he is wearing at really fantastic prices. Let’s be honest, no one wants to pay full pricing for clothing their kids will outgrow in a few short months!

One of my absolute favorite designers is Rachel Zoe! I literally want every single piece in her clothing line. Guess who scored this cute little number by her fave designer? I did!!! I did a simple search for Rachel Zoe on the ThredUP app. Much to my surprise, there were several items available. I decided on this dress and it went from shopping cart to my closet. I could not wait for it to arrive! You guys, I landed the first item of my Rachel Zoe collection. I adore a little black dress. I mean, who doesn’t? This dress is begging me to wear it to a holiday party!!

If shopping consignment has you feeling a bit overwhelmed check out my tips below!

The thrill of the hunt, the anticipation of what could be, my favorite designer labels at prices I can actually afford and the opportunity to allow my creative fashion juices to flow freely! Thrifting can be the most exhilarating roller coaster ride of emotions!

Here are my top 10 thrifting tips:

1. The closet audit. It’s important to know exactly whats in that beautiful abyss of space in which your fave threads live! Otherwise, you will continue to buy the same comfy tee but, in 11 different versions. I keep an ongoing list of items I want and items I need. This helps to keep your impulse buys at bay. The natural response to those amazing prices is to fill up your cart with items you may not need. Just because “it’s a great deal” does not mean it’s a great deal for YOU. Is it really a great deal if you don’t need it, probably will never wear it and already have similar items in your closet? Focus! We are on a mission to save money, upgrade and diversify your wardrobe.

2. Hunt for quality brands and fabrics. Keep a mental list of your favorite designers and keep a lookout for those labels. For example, if I am shopping on my thredUP app I will search for items from my must have designers and cross every possible body part that I will find the perfect items. When thrifting, higher end labels and fabrics will stand the test of time. Natural fabrics will look and wear better over time. Seek out cotton, cotton blends, linens and leather. I always prefer quality over quantity.

3. Shop according to trends. Check out the runways for seasonal trends and inspiration.

4. DIY Up Do. If an item you have your sights set on is a must have but, has seen better days determine if you can repair or give it new life. I love a good DIY challenge. If clothing has pilling there is a simple fix. Use a clean razor and with a gentle hand draw the razor down in the direction of the fabric’s weave for easy removal. Holes are an easy fix with a needle and thread. If embellishments look warn you may either remove them completely or use your creative ideas to add to them! The key is to think outside of the box!

5. Get a great tailor! Whether clothes are new or pre-loved the fit of the item is everything. Chances are second hand clothes are not going to fit like a glove. Sometimes, it’s hard to pass up a designer deal because the hem is a little long. No biggie! Snag that amazing find and use some of the money you saved on the item to have it tailor made to fit your body. If you’re really adventurous grab a needle and thread, watch a youtube video on how to hem a dress and learn some valuable new tricks. Don’t be afraid of a little hemming. Collars can be removed, pants can become shorts and a waist can be cinched with a belt.

6. Challenge yourself. If you see a pattern or texture that catches your attention, don’t prejudge it. Let your creativity take flight and imagine all of the possibilities within. Maybe you really love a dress but would rather it be a skirt. Not a problem! Add a tee over the dress, tie a little knot on the side and bam! Your dress/skirt challenge is solved with a little imagination and a comfy tee.

7. Stock up on jewelry and accessories. These items have been gently loved but usually have so much life left to live. Jewelry usually shows very little wear. It’s also the easiest way to take an outfit from day to night or from casual to fancy. Never underestimate the power of a pre-loved strand of pearls. I mean, have you seen what an amazing set of pearls can do for a silky top and pajama pants? Two words….Carrie Bradshaw!

8. Location, location, location. Cruising on line makes thrifting easy but, if you’re out and about make sure you are hitting up the best spots. Affluent areas of town always make for great finds. When traveling you definitely need to find thrift and antique stores as you cruise through those quant little towns.

9. Put on your detective hat. Check to see if you are indeed getting a deal. If possible, search for the item in question on line to see what others are paying. It’s easy for our feelings to take the thrifting wheel and steer us in the wrong directions.

10. Leave with what you LOVE! You know what I’m talking about. The can’t wait to get to the register with your find so, you power walk like an 80’s work out video…kind of LOVE. The change in the car while at a red light because you can not live through another moment without it on your body….kind of LOVE. The same LOVE that has you walking down the street as if you are in slow motion with a wind machine blowing your hair and breezing through the layers of your perfectly drapey, gently pre-loved floral dress.

Thank You For Your Service…

Thank You For Your Service

This film tells the story of an amazing soldier and hero named Adam Schumann who bravely served our country. His story, like many others is one of bravery, heart break, sacrifice, loyalty and resilience…which EVERYONE needs to hear and see. TYFYS is based on the best selling book by American Journalist David Finkel who spent countless days with Adam and his family. Writer and director Jason Hall gives us a very real sense of what our soldiers experience while serving our country and the struggles of integrating back into family and civilian life. He does not shy away from the real issues our service members and their families experience. Jason takes you into the intimate moments shared between Adam and the men he served alongside. We get a glimpse into their experiences and memories of war, how they struggle to leave the war behind and the challenges they face as they integrate back into their civilian roles as husband, father, son, and friend. Moments like these are not easily talked about or shared with the general public. Our eyes are opened to PTSD and the very real challenges our service members and their families face in getting the medical assistance they need.

thank-you-for-your-service-miles-teller-image

As a family of story tellers, we were really drawn to this script. We audition for things all of the time but this story was different….special and necessary. Stella began the auditioning process when she was four. I remember her auditions vividly. Of course I was a proud mom but, this opportunity felt different. My husband and I have family who were and are service members and have many friends who’s have walked similar journey’s. I will never forget when our agent called with the exciting news that our little family had prayed for! When I heard the words, “Stella was chosen to play Zoe,” it felt like my heart stopped for a moment. I was overcome with gratitude. Not because Stella had received a big booking….although that is exciting….but, because I knew Adam’s story and this film would change so many lives. We want everyone we know to see this film.

 1746842_full

Thank You For Your Service opened on October 27th and we have already seen first hand the impact it has had on so many. I have received messages from military wives and service members who have shared their heart breaking stories that are very similar to Adam Schumann’s. War has a very real and at times devastating impact on our military and the families who support them. My hope is that you will see this film, your eyes will be opened to the challenges our service members face and that you will feel a call to action. The systems set in place to “care” for our military are flawed. Many service members do not receive the care and help they need. BUT, we can change this….we have to change this. It will take some time for our government to repair this flawed system but, David Finkel, Jason Hall and Adam Schumann have already began that uphill battle by bringing these issues to light.  What you can do in the mean time is show immense, true and heart felt gratitude to the men and women who serve our country.  Offer your friends and family who have served a safe place to land, open the door to conversations and offer them unconditional love and support.

Let the next time you say “Thank you for your service” be different. May it be said with a deeper knowledge of their sacrifices.

Schumann-362x320

This is Adam Schumann….Hero, Veteran, Husband, Father, Son, and Friend.

Thank You Adam Schumann for your bravery and sacrifice. Thank you for sharing your story in the most meaningful and honest way. Thank you to your wife Saskia and your children. Thank you….it will never seem like enough but, Thank You!

 While this subject matter is very serious, let me tell you that our time spent on set with these amazing people has forever changed us! Stella had the most fun with Jason, “Mr. Miles and Ms. Haley” (Miles Teller and Haley Bennett). We finally met Adam at the movie premiere. I still do not have adequate words to describe him. He is amazing and every synonym that goes along with that word. We also had the pleasure of meeting the men Adam served with. Trust me when I say….their stories are real and true. These people are extraordinary.

Making movies is all sorts of fun! Making a movie that changes lives is the reason we became actors.

A big thank you to TuTu Du Monde for dressing Stella. She felt like a star!

When all you have is Target….

I get it! Life is busy and there seems to be very little time to focus on your upcoming fall wardrobe. I mean, seriously….school is about to begin, the kids have to look Properly Stylish, the ease of summer is going away and the hustle of a strict routine is creeping in. Yoga pants, a t-shirt and a messy bun may be all you can muster.  The struggle is real! But, I can help you pull together a great fall wardrobe. The best part of all….you don’t have to run to a mall or boutique. We are going to shop where you are already shopping for your kids school supplies and grabbing a few things for dinner….Target!

Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 2.54.04 PM

Let’s chat the “No Fuss” staple, the t-shirt. A comfy t-shirt paired with skinny jeans can be easily dressed up or down. I love this cutie from Target! Metallics are always included in the top Fall/Winter fashion trends and this one is worth every bit of the $14.99 you will spend on it! You can dress it up or down with jeans, dressier pants, a pencil skirt or full skirt. The possibilities are endless.

Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 3.03.35 PM.png

Here’s another comfy and sleek t-shirt in a dusty rose. It looks high end but without the the high end price tag. It’s a knit jersey blend which is great for these southern seasons where it really doesn’t start to cool off until late October. Allow it to stand alone with great statement jewelry or add a timeless jean or leather jacket.

Speaking of a great jacket….look at these beauties! They are faux leather and will run you about $39.99. You can wear with jeans and a t-shirt or over a maxi dress. You can snag the black one here and the tan here.

Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 5.07.35 PM.png

The top designers have spoken and both Power RED and LACE are huge trends for fall 2017. How much do you love this Who What Wear Red lace tee? For the love of lace and snake print! I love this!! That skirt is amazing. It’s sweetness with a bit of edge.

I love a great romper and this one has so many great details. It’s modern, sleek and just the right amount of sass. The top portion is blouse like and the ruching on the leg is a great added detail. The pant suit seems to always make the fashion trends list. You can add a suit jacket to this romper and be on trend. Add these block heeled sandals  and you are set! I have those sandals in Robins Egg Blue and I adore them! This outfit will definitely be in my closet!

Ankle boots and mules are IN! These are a few of my favorites! Can we talk about the faux Pony Hair Mules??? I love them. I’m having a flash back to the 90’s.

So many floral prints flooded the runways. I love this little wrap dress paired with olive booties!! Wrap dresses are perfect for every body shape!

Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 9.55.39 PM.png

I am ready for fall!! Summer has been great and I hate to see it slip away but, I have always been a huge fan of fall fashion! Hopefully, this post will help you add a few Properly Stylish pieces to your red Target cart! I would love to see your finds!

XO,

Wendy

 

 

Making time for self care….

_DSC4685.E

 

Can I be honest? Fitting in workouts has been the biggest challenge for me! I have a nasty habit of putting my needs on the back burner. Raise your hand if you can relate!! I run around making sure everyone else’s needs are met and allow myself to have the left overs. I recently saw a meme that said, “My kids look like they stepped out of a GAP ad and I look like I stepped out of an episode of the Walking Dead!” It’s funny and it was true!

You guys, I know better! Self care is a must. It’s important to take care of your soul, mind and body. Without getting too deep….I had to really look at how I viewed myself. Why do I insist on the best for my husband and kids but, not for myself? I felt the rumblings of change beginning to happen. You know the feeling, God starts stirring up things he wants to change in you. It hurts but, it’s necessary.  After some much needed time with my Creator and acknowledging deeply rooted “I am not enough” insecurities, I focused my attention on self care and self love.

I came up with 3 things I must do daily to care for myself.

That seems easy enough, right?

  1. Nurture my relationship with God through meditation, reading and prayer.
  2. Center my attention on Thankfulness.
  3. Care for my body through nutrition and exercise.

I have so much to say about all of these areas and I promise I will share more!

But…..

 _DSC4456.E

Let’s chat fitness!

Your body needs to move! When you work out your body produces endorphins. The link between exercise and mood is pretty strong! I start to feel a shift in my mood fairly soon after I begin….it’s getting myself going that is the struggle.

_DSC4368.E

Never enough time! I am eyelash deep in babies, house cleaning, memorizing scripts and the countless other things that seem to creep in and takeover my day. I often feel like I don’t have time and the time that I do have I want to throw myself into a comfy bed and sleep. And, sometimes you need to indulge and do just that. But, I am in control of my day and if I want to see change I have to chisel out time. The first few days of my self care journey were filled with half attempts at failed workouts. I definitely try to be gentle with myself and extend grace. What I found that keeps me accountable is setting health goals and remembering why I need to be fit and healthy….my family! So, I fit my work outs into the nooks and crannies.

_DSC4399.E

My babies are always with me so, naturally I came up with ways to include them in my work out!  We make it fun and easy. I love that it introduces fitness to them at a young age. When they understand that I want to keep my body healthy and in shape, it motivates them to be healthy too!

When we work out together I do things that they love like kicking the ball and tag.  I also introduce a few exercises that their little bodies can handle. I am not going to lie, it’s pretty cute watching them attempt burpees. I am sure the added laughter increases the amount of calories burned, right?

Here are a few exercises we like to do together!

  1. Planks
  2. Squats
  3. Push-ups
  4. Lunges
  5. Burpees
  6. Leg raises
  7. High Knees

 

_DSC4368.E

And…..we run! My favorite Jogging Stroller is the Joovy Zoom 360. It’s lightweight, comfy and easy to maneuver. Seriously, this stroller has the most amazing ability to go over any terrain and make smooth turns. I actually prefer this stroller whenever we are cruising around town running errands! Thank you to Joovy for allowing me the ease of running with a great stroller!

_DSC4468.E

You can get your Joovy Zoom for under $220 here! Its Properly Stylish and affordable! Definitely a mommy must have!!

_DSC4503.E

To make sure my body is getting all of the nourishment it needs I follow a healthy diet and take Plexus’ plant based supplements. Don’t worry, I will fill you in on all of the details. I love veggies and Plexus! Both have changed my health game!

_DSC4737.E

Nothing motivates me more than my babies! If you need inspiration, look at the faces of your loved ones.

I hope my journey with self care will inspire you to take time for yourself. You are worth it! Both you and your family deserves to have the best version of “YOU.”

Be gentle and extend yourself a healthy serving of grace. Workouts don’t have to be perfect and you do not have to have a gym membership to exercise. Work with what you have, love on your family and get that body moving!

XO,

Wendy Wynne

 

Our trip to Disney…

studio_stdentr1_20161121_7869248071

We finally planned a trip to Disney and let me tell you….it was Magical!!

Im going to let you in on a little something about me. I am a perfectionist. There, I said it. I revel in the details….which at times can overwhelm me. Two things that were must haves for a trip to Disney were someone who knows every magical detail about Disney travel to help me plan this adventure and an amazing double stroller. Not too much to ask…in my opinion.

Joy Walters with Travelmation, and Joovy came to my rescue!

I gave Joy my list of “must” haves, would “love” to haves, and would “die” to haves. She came back with my top resort, The Beach Club, at an amazing price. Her magic did not end there! She arranged our meal plans, made our reservations, helped with our fast passes and set up a birthday celebration for my sweet Stella! Joy was my very own Fairy God-Mother! She planned a magical trip that we will never forget!

mk_msathclb_20161117_7864989770

Stella met a new friend along the way!

Well, we met several friends actually. I can’t quite narrow down a favorite. Liam was pretty smitten with Joy and Sadness. Look at the toothy grin and sweet hand holding going on here!

joovy

Traveling with a family of 4 to a place where we would walk several miles a day had me researching double strollers like a maniac. As I searched through the many, many, many double strollers on the market I could never find the “one.” Well, that was until I came across this beauty! The Joovy Scooter X2 has so many wonderful features!

d5

The Joovy Scooter will give Cinerella’s carriage a run for its money! Its 30 inches wide, fits through standard doors, can accommodate up to 90 pounds of kiddo sweetness and will not turn into a pumpkin after midnight! Hallelujah!!!

d2

You can recline seats and adjust footrests independently of one another, which was vital having a busy 6 year old and sleepy 1 year old. We took advantage of this cozy coup while sister was playing around in Toy Story Mania. I’m in love with the extra large canopy. It creates the perfect little nook for nap time.

d1

It’s definitely a carriage fit for a princess and her tiny prince. The true test of any carriage is in how much of your ball gown it can hold!

d4

The Joovy Scooter X2 has large wheels which allow you to maneuver the magical streets of Disney with ease! It handled the roads well as we ran from dinner reservations to princess meet and greets and then off to catch shows located on the other end of the park!  It reminded me of the scene from Home Alone where the family is running through the air port. You know which one I’m talking about! Well, that was us, but the Disney and Joovy version!

Can we just all stop for a minute and admire the glorious basket? I packed so much in there! There were snacks, blankets, extra clothing options, souvenirs, a diaper bag, a map, my purse and possibly Cinderella’s little mice friends. The basket is the Mary Poppins bag for strollers!

There are also places to easily store your drinks and generously sized zipper pouches that can hold cell phones, keys and other trinkets.

d3

Traveling the parks was quite easy with this companion! We stayed on property at the Beach Club Resort and took buses and boats to each park. The Joovy Scooter X2 is lightweight and is easily stored using the one handed fold feature. We were on and off of those buses faster than you could say Bippity-Boppity-Boo!

d6

My love for the Joovy Scooter X2 runs deep. It is a great economy double stroller with immense storage! It comes in 5 different colors which allows you to be uniquely Properly Stylish! Joovy also has a “call us if anything goes wrong” guarantee and all their products are JPMA certified. We are totally in love with this stroller!!

Couldn’t help but do a review of the amazing Joovy Scooter X2 Stroller and how it helped us during our entire trip.

Thank you  Joy Walters with Travelmation for being my Fairy God-Mother and planning every detail of this magical trip!  It was an amazing time for our family and we made so many wonderful memories! And to Joovy for the Scooter X2 Stroller which was the perfect carriage for my little prince and princess!  You helped us enjoy the magic of Disney by allowing us to travel the parks with ease! The Joovy Scooter X2 kept my babies from turning into little pumpkins by keeping them well rested and happy the entire trip. Last but not least…thank you Disney, for bringing out the inner child in us all with this magical experience.
