An Unexpected Adventure and Learning Lesson

February 01, 2016

Since moving to New York, we began a tradition of flying south. For a few years in a row it was to various spots in Florida, and then we finally decided this year to try a completely new destination.

After throwing around ideas, we ultimately chose Bermuda as our destination of choice. As neither of us have been there and JetBlue flew non-stop, it seemed like the way to go.

Once we arrived at the airport, the flight was on-time and looking good. Thirty minutes before departure, we heard an announcement that our flight was delayed due to weather in Bermuda. 

Roughly twenty minutes later, our flight was cancelled.

We now had a choice. Do we simply go back to the city to enjoy our long weekend, or do we swap our tickets for the next flight out?

The latter is just what we did.

And, before we knew it, we were headed to the Bahamas.

On previous trips and more specifically with our now cancelled Bermuda trip, we had our entire itinerary all laid out, from the ferries we would take to the bikes we would rent. Of course there was room for changes, but we had a game plan.

What this Bahamas trip offered instead was an opportunity to let go and just roll with what happened, starting with the hotel.

Do we stay at the well-known Atlantis or do we try something else?

We ended up choosing the latter, and although we thought we may regret the choice, we once again found the excitement in the unknown.

From walking the town and seeing local sites to eating Italian at a restaurant that could easily rival those found in New York City, it was as much of an adventure as it was a lesson in letting go and being open for what comes your way.

Although our trip was short, it was sweet, and although Bermuda is still on our must-visit list, you can expect we'll return back to Bermuda.

P.S. I have to add that especially on such a whirlwind trip, it was just a long weekend, some Adea Layering Tops and Adea Undies should be on your must-pack list. You know I have a soft spot for bodysuits and this is not an exception.

Artificial Intelligence Enters Fashion

I first wrote about “Stitch Fix” for ADEA in a blog titled “Tech Savvy Females Reign” that appeared on March 14, 2018.

For the record, I do not remember the titles of all the ADEA blogs I’ve written and when they appeared. So I have a bright red three-hole binder to help me keep track of the month, year and headline of each blog.

The Super-talented Barefoot Contessa

April 03, 2019

I have been watching domestic goddess, Ina Garten, create mouth-watering delicacies on her cooking show forever. Now, it seems, we are in a new era where shows such as, “The World’s Worst Cook” or “How to Beat So-and-So in X-Minutes” reign supreme. Obviously this type of scheduling is geared to an audience that has no interest in watching a cook in the kitchen who whips up several superb dishes for a memorable lunch or dinner. I only catch The Barefoot Contessa now by accident: early mornings on days I can never remember.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
