Last week we gave you information on where to go when you decide to break your phone habit. Put another way, the author was horrified when she discovered that she picked up her iPhone 64 times in four-plus hours. She felt she needed help fast.
I still had that blog in my head when I ran across an intriguing article that takes this issue even further. It’s called The Conscious Nomad and it appeared in the March/April 2018 issue of AFAR – a relatively new magazine that I started reading recently.
The writer of this intriguing piece, Ashlea Halpern, talked at length with Sara Clemence, author of a new book titled, Away & Aware: A Field Guide to Mindful Travel. In a nutshell, Sara wants you to switch your phone to airplane mode, talk to strangers and tune into a world without digital noise while you’re on vacation. We’re giving you Sara’s comments in bulleted form because she has a lot of very interesting things to say (much more than we can fit into a 600-word blog).
There’s lots more terrific, solid advice in Sara’s book (you can reserve it at your local library or buy it on Amazon). This blog is just the tip of the iceberg – that you may see one day with your new 35mm camera when you’re shooting in Antarctica!

I think one of my New Year’s resolutions will be “no more blogs about shoes” because I’ve written so much about shoes in 2018 (this resolve will probably have a short shelf life and vanish by Valentine’s Day). Why? Because the topic is so multi-faceted: namely, the history of shoes, the designers who create them, retail shoe events, fascinating footwear exhibits and, of course dazzling new and innovative approaches to shoes that are always appearing.
I’m sure you’ve heard about Elon Musk, the billionaire, who is a co-founder of PayPal and Tesla Motors. He was in the news when he sent his “kid-sized” submarine to northern Thailand to help in the flooded cave rescue of 12 young footballers and their 25-year-old coach. Ultimately, the mini submarine wasn’t used, but it did give both the United States and Musk a lot of positive news coverage.
In follow-up to my last post - Fashion Week - Street Style Trends, I decided to share some additional trends that were seen on the streets in September and that are still prevalent in the shops. With the holiday season upon us, hopefully these trends will offer you some styling inspiration but also some gift-giving ideas.
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.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
