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 found the whole experience fascinating so when I came across an article about the history of the Plaza I started reading at once.
For 58 years, 89% of the astronauts have been men. And for 192 years, there were no women justices on the Supreme Court until Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. In light of where we are today – these numbers are shocking.
In the five years that I’ve been writing these fashion blogs I’ve come to the conclusion that the creative heads of these worldwide companies have daunting, or almost impossible, daily jobs. The headline you see above came from Alessandro Michele who, in January 2015, became the creative director of Gucci, the company that was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921 and currently has 500 stores worldwide.
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.
