J’adore #53

I am not a big shopper which is why I tend to do virtual shopping, and if I can buy something online I will. J'adore is my way of collecting the things I think are cool, things I spot in my online travels. From time to time I do actually buy a few things and share what I like. My tendency is to buy from small locally-owned businesses, women-owned if I can, so by sharing a little about them … [Read more...]

Travel Gear Tuesday – My Bags

A couple of people have asked me what bags I use on my travels so I thought I would share.  I would love to hear what other people use as well.  Finding good travel bags is essential.  You want as light as possible with good functionality and is extremely durable.

Travel Gear Tuesday – Vinni Bags

My husband had never been south of the Unites States, … [Read more...]
