I have had a subscription to International Travel News since the turn of the century (a little Irish hyperbole). Seriously, this monthly publication – with its down-to-earth b/w newsprint format – started in Sacramento, California way back in 1976. It covers everywhere in the world EXCEPT the United States. All of the information is very practical. I’ve decided to take excerpts from a column that ran in March 2018 by Mark Gallo. It is titled The Mindful Traveler and it’s very relevant because we’re heading for the summer travel season.

SUPPLYING POWER TO YOUR MOBILE
In another article that appeared in the International Travel News of August 20, 2017 he notes that the most common adapters for US travelers to use for smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and many models of laptops are dual-voltage with 2-prong charging cords that work with non-grounded adapters.
To sum up, if you’re going to France or Germany, you need the Continental Europe adapter plug. However, if you’re traveling to a country where two or more different adapters are used (e.g., China, India, parts of Africa and South America) you’ll need to do more planning for wall-socket specs.

If there’s one thing we know about The Big Apple it’s that there’s lots to do during the holidays. Every year I’m amazed at how many people stroll down Fifth Avenue to see all the classy shops with their highly decorated windows. Sadly, there will be no Lord & Taylor this year but, as per usual I’m sure Bergdorf’s will come up with a real showstopper. Here’s a brief overview of what you can do and see.
I’d like to revisit the Fosse/Verdon series that I wrote about earlier. CLICK HERE to read about this year’s Tony Awards.
This series is based on a heavily researched biography titled Fosse by Sam Wasson who is a visiting professor of film at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
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.
