V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N….in the summer time….. can’t get that song to stop looping in my noggin.
Vacation is exciting and different and wonderful. However…… by the sheer fact of the exciting and different part….our “normal” comfortable routine is mixed up patty whacked. Today, I wanted to share two things that might make your next trip a bit easier and happier.
I found a lush creature comfort that I knew I wanted to share. (Side note: don’t you just slump in your chair and throw your arms up when someone says, “Oh, I’ve been using that for two years now, you didn’t know?” Urgh.)
Right, this minute, as I type, my lush, dreamy soft, Scarf/Poncho/Wrap is rolled up and stored in my carry on satchel for use next trip.
The store that I purchased it from is called Lace & Grace. Quick service and quite a large variety of items.
These are my own opinions & sadly, no, I was not paid to endorse my new favorite travel items.
First the details. It is huge and yet manageable. Excellent quality, reversible with substantial buttons and rich saturated colors. The fabric is soft, you sort of want to pet it, but that would be weird. By the way, this company has several colors and patterns to choose from.
I have a tendency to get cold on the airplane. Out came the scarf. I had it rolled up inside my carry on bag, easy to get to. I wore it like a poncho so it covered my shoulders and kept the chill at bay. It looks great with jeans and a t-shirt, however, I did wear it one evening with bold jewelry and as a scarf, it looked rather fetching, if I do say so myself.
Next option, I just buttoned only one of the buttons, turned it a couple times and wore it as a scarf through the airport as we caught our next flight.
During the driving….. Mr. Right logged 1,873 miles during this vacation…… I folded the scarf/poncho/shawl over my legs and was nice and cozy without blasting the heater.
I must say this garment construction is beautiful and the reverse color of soft gray and white herringbone complemented several outfits.
Overall, extremely pleased with this piece.
The other best travel piece is my Berkey travel Water Bottle. http://www.getberkey.com/
It has the filter right inside. I pack it empty in my carry on and once past airport security, I can fill it up using a water fountain or any tap water. (Note: It does not filter out fluoride. I keep a list of bottled waters sans fluoride and when available I purchase those. Then I pour those into my bottle. ) Travel choices are not perfect, we do what we can.
When not traveling, I store this item alongside my travel satchel and suitcases. A quality product that works very well. I can’t imagine traveling without one. I highly recommend.
I hope these gentle suggestions will make your next trip ( you are planning your next adventure, right?) a bit smoother.
In this together, friends.
Just sharing the goodness.
