Plus Size Travel Tips: Be Prepared for Chafing, Blisters, Burns and Aches with Medzone

Relaxing is usually not on my plus size travel agenda. I just got back from a two-week trip to Italy where we visited 12 cities and stayed in six different hotels. I'm extremely grateful that we got to see so much of Italy including a familiar faves like Palermo, Naples, and Taormina as well as places that were new to me such as Salina Island,  Positano and Bovino.

In order to accomplish this massive agenda, we were on the move constantly. For every ache, pain, burn, blister and chub rub that came up, I was prepared with MedZone's family of travel products. You can get them all on Amazon. They are easy to pack and most importantly, they work!

My New Chub Rub & Thigh Chafing Solution with ChafeZone

If you are a person with thighs that touch, chances are you've experienced chafing or as it's more affectionately known, chub rub. Over the years, I have sought out many different treatment options for chafing. Many of the solutions for chub rub that I've tried quite frankly just didn't work. I mostly gave up on doing anything that wasn't wearing a long pair of cotton bike shorts. That is until I discovered ChafeZone for Chub Rub. 

Although ChafeZone is a new product to the plus size community, Medzone, the company who makes the product has been around since 2001. ChafeZone for Chub Rub is just one among a family a products that treat skin irritations. Knowing the history of the brand made me feel at ease. This wasn't a product targeting the plus community because it's trendy; this is a solution-driven brand with a history.

SAG Awards Beauty Looks for Beginner's

I will be the first to admit that I am a beauty and makeup novice but I am always down to try something new. With the encouragement from a few of my favorite fellow plus size bloggers, I am recreating a SAG Awards beauty look from 2017 Nominee Sarah Paulson. In collaboration with these plus size bloggers, you can check out a whole range of different SAG Awards beauty looks such as Meaghan O'Connor of Little Lime Dress recreating Emma Stone's look from La La Land

I like watching the SAG Awards because there are nominees from both television and film. This year, the SAG Award nominee list features a few of personal favorites including Sarah Paulson in her nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries in The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. When this miniseries aired this summer, I was totally hooked. I remember watching the trial on TV as a kid but never really having a grasp of what really happened. Paulson's portryal of prosecutor Marcia Clark was so good it already earned her an Emmy.
