Hosting a travel party

Hosting a travel party

A great way to get the buzz going about your next trip is to host a travel party.  One of my guest writers, Heidi Papworth, hosted one and invited my husband and I to present “tips for traveling” for a few guests.  Each guest was planning a trip to a different European country.  We shared…

When in doubt, go with black

When in doubt, go with black

Black is a traveler’s dream color. Not only does it hide stains well, but it can also be mixed and matched with pretty much any other color. It’s easy to find and you probably already own several black items, which could make it the more affordable option as your base. If you’re planning on enjoying some good food and wine,…

  Everyone knows that traveling in the car with others can be a stressful situation.  Everyone has different music preferences and bathroom schedules, but it doesn’t mean it has to be a headache.  There are things you can do to make the trip easier on yourself, and everyone else, so the journey part can just…

Tips for looking good on-the-go

Tips for looking good on-the-go

If you’ve ever wanted to know what you look like when you’re completely exhausted, without makeup and dehydrated, try planning an epic trip with lots of flights, hiking and moving around.

No-heat hairstyles

No-heat hairstyles

In an effort to prepare for a five-day camping extravaganza in Chile where I will not be able to bring any hair tools, I’ve been trying out new “no-heat” curling styles.  I figured this is not only good for camping, but also would be a great way to limit the amount of appliances you bring…

This was the case for us two…

Take a journey

Take a journey

You don’t have to go to Paris to take a journey.  A journey can be a road trip to another city, a small overnight trip to somewhere not too far from you.  Whether it’s money, time or other commitments, you can’t always shell it out for a big trip, but that doesn’t mean you can’t…
