The Winter Getaway: Cuba

February 06, 2015

1 Comment


Immediately after New Year's Day I start searching for the first hints of spring. Warm, sunny days are still a long way off and patience is not my strong suit. So, to ward off the winter doldrums, I try to plan a trip in February to keep my spirits up. This year’s adventure falls over Presidents' Day Weekend: a five-day trip to Cuba!

A few months ago, after much research about legal ways to visit Cuba, I contacted a licensed travel agency and got the ball rolling. The timing couldn’t have been better. Just recently the US government began to ease restrictions on travel to Cuba and Americans, it seems, will have fewer difficulties visiting in the future. Over time Cubans will most certainly benefit from the eased restrictions and additional foreign investment. On the other hand, I imagine the vintage 1950s cars and distressed architecture will quietly disappear. I can’t get there fast enough.

At Adea we love traveling and exploring, anywhere, for any reason. We’ve blogged about getaways before in this post and it’s no secret that our bodywear is perfect for traveling. While we LOVE to travel, packing is a different story. Cuba poses a particular packing challenge because I don’t know anyone who has been there. Well, besides Beyonce and Jay-Z, but I don't exactly have her wardrobe or her entourage to carry it. I’m a little unsure of what to pack.

 

This weekend I'll use one of these packing lists to finalize my travel outfits and I'll post the results next week. Has anyone been to Cuba? Can you weigh in on what I should pack?

      From Bartender to Congresswoman

      April 09, 2020

      There are times when life throws you a curveball that’s so unbelievable you can barely believe it. This is what happened to a career politician by the name of Joseph Crowley in November 2018 when he was voted out of office. A 28-year-old female bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who received 57% of the vote – suddenly became the youngest woman to serve in the United States Congress.

      “Reporters Ultimately Don’t Stop”

      This is first time I’ve focused intensely and in-depth on a male for Adea. However, I truly believe the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow deserves this salute. In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

      Maye Musk Is Really Rockin’

      March 27, 2020

      On April 19th of this year, Musk turns 72-years-old and her life has never been better! CLICK HERE to read our first blog about this lovely lady. 

      Now, according to an article I read in Bazaar’s January 2020 edition, Musk is the oldest star ever to appear in a CoverGirl ad campaign. She looks 20 years younger than she is – in other words: absolutely terrific.  Her incredible life story is now being told in a book titled “A Woman Makes a Plan” with startling photos from the family vault.

      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.
