We’ve been driving the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse High Country model for almost a year so we were due for an update for you guys! I STILL LOVE IT! We recently gave back this beautiful truck to Chevrolet and I was crying inside, we had the vehicle as part of our partnership with them and I quickly became attached…all of us did! This truck is perfect four our family of 4 people and 1 big dog! It even has Built-in 4G LTE with Wi-Fi® hotspot capability2 for up to seven compatible devices means the Internet comes along for the ride, almost anywhere you go. As a mom and lifestyle blogger always on the go – that is so so handy.
This was by far one of my favourite partnerships this year, Chevrolet Canada has been a dream to work with – a Canadian dream of course. We travelled to the East coast with them, just Craig and I glamping and it was such a fun experience together vs the usual date night haha! Craig fell in love with Chevrolet just as much as I did, the team behind this brand is passionate about their vehicles and the brand. They are knowledgeable and have the customers best interests at heart, they are constantly learning and working to provide families with the best vehicles they can. This Traverse was perfect for us in every way…like I literally have NOTHING negative to say about it, I miss it – can you tell?
The goal of this campaign was to share the story of how I got here, in the career of my dreams all while still doing what I love most – being a mom. In the commercial I am quoted saying “Tell me that it can’t happen and I’m gonna show you that it can.”, call me stubborn but I call it determination and drive. That is how I got here.
I got here with hours of lost sleep, hard work, imagination and creation. I got here with the support of my loved ones and the doubt of many, but I got here and there are still so many more things I plan to do. I appreciate all of you for joining along on this journey and staying along for the ride. If anything I hope from this commercial that you gain some clarity or focus of your goals, or I HOPE I can inspire you to go after your dreams. Nothing is impossible and you CAN create the life you want to live.
What do you look for in a vehicle when purchasing? Are safety features your first concern, style or comfort? How about a vehicle that has it all and more…that’s this one in my opinion, especially for a family.Traverse takes safety seriously, especially when it comes to crash prevention. This smart SUV uses available and standard cameras, ultrasonic sensors and radar to look out for potential hazards to help you avoid collisions before they happen. We knew as parents we needed a bigger vehicle, there was no way Craig was buying a van – this truck has SO much space, and the dog basically had his own room in the back of it haha!
