a travel essential

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Travel Gear Tuesday hasn’t made an appearance in a while, but I figured I would get back on track after coming across the most brilliant piece of travel gear I have seen in a while. I think that was pretty self-explanatory. My friend Bryce got this at the Gap Outlet on sale right before our […]

protecting my macbook and my old routine

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Before we moved into our new neighborhood, Mike and I liked to go to a local coffee shop and drink coffee while I clicked away on my lap top and he flipped through flashcards studying for one of the many exams he must complete to become a registered architect. It was nice, and it was […]

travel gear tuesday: don’t go hungry

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

As part of my packing strategy for my trip to Guatemala and El Salvador, I went to BJ’s Wholesale Club and bought a giant pack of LUNA bars – you would have thought I was packing to go live there. Fearing that I might adopt the comfort level that my friend Sue had achieved after […]

travel gear tuesday: convertible glove mittens

My sister has been rocking these for months now and I have finally found a pair that I like! I got these purple ones at Spring, which is my new favorite shoe store. Let’s face it, Boston is freezing in the winter- you need to cover up. And when you have a long commute to […]

When Kraig Becker posted on Gadling about Tourists that were rescued from the Swiss Mountains thanks to an iPod, my first reaction was the thought that an iPod is always a lifesaver on a trip, but I was curious to see that in literal form. The tourists were lost in the mountains and when their phones died after […]

The below post captures the unfortunate realities of our favorite travel gear. So without further ado… Dear Bailey Works bag, […]

travel gear tuesday: less is more

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

I must admit – for spending a week in a place where the sun is twice as strong as it is in Boston, my most important piece of travel gear while in Central America was sunblock -SPF 85. I didn’t get sunburned! Trust me, that is impressive for a red head. Two weeks ago, I […]
