Travel accessories for less

3 Nov

One could expect a lot of holiday travel this season. With traveling comes packing and personally I prefer to travel light. Rather than stock my luggage with bulky sweaters and jackets, I plan on wearing my heavier outfits, packing only the neutral basics and some accessories.  I’m excited that Anthro’s marked down some accessories.  What I love about accessories is that they take the least amount of luggage space.  I don’t mind having more of them to change out when creating different outfit options.  One day I could wear a necklace with a black or grey top, the next day I could swap it out for a scarf.  The yellow wallet could be used as a clutch rather than a wallet.  As for toiletries, no need to carry around a big perfume bottle when the solid perfume will do – and take up less room of course.

Anthropologie Sale

6 Sep

Anthropologie usually marks down their merchandise every Tuesday.  Being in the remote part of the ‘burbs, the nearest Anthro from where I live is about an hour away. (Wah-wah.) When I lived in NYC and near Boston there was usually one right near my home. Oh well. Anyway, thank goodness for the internet! What would we do without it. This month of September there’s free shipping provided I pay for one full price item which I could easily find in the kitchen or candle section.  I could probably get something for under $10 to use as a last minute gift for someone.  Anyway, if I were at a store and was able to try on everything, here are some of the things I’d look at first.

Getting ready for the hurricane

27 Aug

As Hurricane Irene makes her way up the east coast, many are preparing or have prepared by stocking up in advance or coming up with emergency plans. With me, I’ve filled up any and every empty plastic and Sigg bottle and pitcher I could find with water.  I’ve brought out the large umbrella, Columbia rain jacket and rain boots in case I’ve got to go outside to take out the dog to potty or pick up some tree branch debris.  Also got out the extra batteries and flashlights, charged the cell phones and stocked up on food.

Depending where you live, you could still run out to Walmart or Dick’s Sporting Goods to get last minute stuff.  The best thing you could do though is stay indoors, but if you have to run out real quick, here’s some things you may want to get to keep you dry.
