As many of you know, I spend most of my time surfing Pinterest these days. On a weekly basis, I plan to share some of my favorite pins here. Click on the images to lead back to the original source or visit my Pinterest site.
The blog world has been buzzing about Albin Holmqvist’s Paris video. I just went online to check out his other work and I’m totally blown away by how he captures a city through video. Technically, they’re advertisements for EF language schools, but they are really ads for the cities and culture.
Acapulco is going through a total revival. Have you noticed? EVERYONE is talking about it. I was surfing around my fave blogs today and came across a great post about the Hotel Boca Chica on Ruby PR. The design is fabulous! I can’t wait to go!!
I’m completely and madly obsessed with Pinterest. Have you heard of it? It’s an amazing site where you can “pin” images to your own online “bulletin boards”. It’s so easy and so much fun! Here’s my site – check it out!
Those of you who know me, know that I’m always on the go. Between work and personal travel, I’m usually gone half the year (maybe I’m exaggerating, but it sure feels like it!). This year I’ve discovered some things to make life a lot easier – hopefully they’ll help you, too!
Travelpro Walkabout Lite
During my collegiate years I was always known as a light-packer. I’m not sure when things changed, but over the past couple of years I really started to over-pack. Things changed this summer, though. My luggage was lost on the way to Greece and I resolved to never check a bag again. So far it’s made life a lot easier. Whether you’re gone for two weeks or two days, you can make do with the space in a roll-aboard bag.
LL Bean Toiletry Bag
I’ve been using this LL Bean toiletry bag for the past couple of years. It’s full of handy pockets for all of my necessities, and if something spills, I just take the entire thing into the shower and wash it out. It dries out over night and I’m back on the road.
Goodbye, leaky shampoo containers. Hello, GoToob! I recently found these amazing little containers in Las Vegas. They’re a little spendy, but worth every penny.
Barnes & Noble Nook
When I’m on vacation I read a lot – usually a book a day. Needless to say, I’ve been hauling stacks of books all over the world with me for years. This summer I finally broke down and bought an e-reader. It’s made life so much easier. I can’t believe I waiting so long.
I’ve been buying $5 pashminas off the street in New York for years. They are truly an essential in my wardrobe. I’ve recently learned that they double as a fantastic blanket on airplanes. Now I carry them with me wherever I go – never to be cold again!
