Welcome back to another edition of J’adore, the series where I share things I am currently adoring from near and afar. Whether is internet window-shopping or products that have traveled to my doorstep, there is something about each and every one of these products that I think is cool. And I hope you to do too, so let’s get going.

This particular edition is travel-focused, everything included is something I would definitely bring along in my suitcase or carry-on to make my outing, vacation, or road-trip that much better.

Samsonite Jordyn Laptop Tote


I got this bag as schwag at the Women in Travel Summit in Boston at the end of the March. Best schwag EVAH! Since then this bag has not left my side. I use it for my daily commuting bag. It has gone with me on casual weekend trips, week-long business trips and on vacation. I have been searching for a bag like this for years and I love it! Carries my laptop, iPad mini, files, personal purse stuff, you name it, on comfortable on my shoulder and no matter how I stuff it, it still fits under the seat in front of me on the plane – score!

KESS InHouse – Everything Bag

Sylvia-Cook-Travel-Bug-Map-Everything-BagAs my Samsonite Jordyn Laptop Tote is deep, I have little bags to organize various items inside. Like electronics in one and health and beauty items in another. But that doesn’t mean my bag has to be boring! KESS InHouse has adorable Everything Bags that fit, well a lot of things! And they come in a ton of patterns, something for everyone’s tastes. I love this red one because, well, I love red. But the travel one is an appropriate way of telling the world where my passions lie!

This could have been called the band or bracelet edition because I’ve got three to share!

June UV Monitoring Bracelet

I am pale. When I was younger I used to spend a lot of time in the sun swimming. But it has been many years since I have let my skin tan, and I avoid burns at all cost. I wear sunscreen with lots of SPF. So I am loving the new June UV Monitoring Bracelet because it measures my sun exposure throughout the day and I can get real-time updates on my iPhone to further protect myself from the sun. Awesome! And beautifully designed by a French jeweler (bien sûr!).

PSI Bands

PSI BandsI have had a PSI Bands for a long time. I first bought one when Mr. Misadventures and I went on an Alaskan cruise and 10-years later I still bring them with me to any occasion I think I am going to get on a boat. I never got seasick until I was older and it is not fun. It is a natural medicine-free way of taking care of nausea.

I haven’t used for being car sick but I have to imagine it would work for that scenario as well, so if you tend to go on road trips with friends, you may want to have a couple of sets in your glove box handy for guests. And bonus, they come in fun colors!

Mosquitno Band

Mosquitno BandsSpotted on Tamara’s We 3 Travel’s Summer Family Road trip Gear Guide, I love the simplicity of a Mosquitno Band protecting me against mosquito bites without DEET. I really wanted to bring one to Hawaii with me but I couldn’t get them in time for my trip. I have a 5-pack on order to have on-hand for future trips (like our upcoming trip to Oregon).

Hawaiian Airline Flight Amenity Kits

Speaking of Hawaii, it’s no secret that I love Hawaiian Airlines (I feel like an unofficial brand ambassador). They have graciously transported me to the islands many times. What people may not know is that they have a ton of international routes in the Pacific and you can do a layover and stay a few days in Hawaii with no extra charge.

Now, when you do fly Hawaiian Airlines internationally, you’ll one of their new gorgeous amenity kits available in all cabins. Hawaiian Airlines partnered with Manuheali‘i (one of Hawaii’s most popular designers) to design the exclusive pattern and weave in the Hawaiian culture.

Old Fashioned Carry-on Cocktail Kit


Why not add a cocktail to your in air experience? I spot these spiffy looking cocktail kits on the AFAR website and in use via the NVR Guys. I am totally buying one (some) of these for my next long haul. And maybe for my office earthquake kit! Or maybe in my car for the times I am sitting in horrendous bridge traffic! [Just kidding, no drinking and driving folks!]

That’s it for this edition of J’adore! I hope you enjoyed exploring some of the travel-focused finds that have come across my radar as of late.

How about you? What are you currently adoring?
