An Unexpected Adventure and Learning Lesson

February 01, 2016

0 Comments


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.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Are You Sleeping Well?

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.

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 contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
