Prana Halle Short II Is a Key Short for Summer

By Jill | May 20, 2022

Summer isn’t summer without shorts. Sure, perhaps you wear them year-round, but for others the annual switch from pants to shorts in wardrobes are cause for celebration. Plus, shorts are travel essentials in many destinations.   You may recall that a few months ago, I reviewed the Prana Halle Jogger II pants and placed them…

Comfortable for Adventure: Outdoor Research Women’s Vantage Bralette

By Jill | May 13, 2022

Bras can provide a necessary service, but bras that don’t breathe well or wick sweat are more than irritating, especially when you need to move on an adventure, are working out indoors, or are just walking around the block. Even if you get all your other clothing items right for the adventure, a bad bra…

Casual Style with Duer Women’s No Sweat Everyday Pant

By Jill | April 29, 2022

Those long flights, train trips, bus rides, and auto road trips are much easier when you’re comfortable. And while I’m not one to tell others whether they should wear pajamas in public, I’m more likely to err on the side of comfort vs. dressy on my voyages. But comfort doesn’t have to be pajamas and…

Costa Salina Sunglasses Combine Lifestyle With Performance

By Jill | April 22, 2022

Now that the sun is coming back into our lives from the shorter days of winter, it’s time to assess available eyewear. I’m pretty light sensitive, so I have a stash of sunglasses in many places: the car, the table in the foyer, my purse, and my shopping bag. There’s also a back-up collection of…

By Jill | April 15, 2022

News of climate change is all around, and many consumer goods companies are making their own changes to minimize their inherent impact on the planet.

Buff CoolNet UV Insect Shield Is No Joke

By Jill | April 1, 2022

I promise, this is no April Fool’s post.   As many of us switch from winter to spring/summer activities, we find that we’re dodging insects in the outdoors. Buzzing around our ears and in our eyes. Biting our arms and our legs. Quite frankly, it bugs. Sure, there are sprays and zappers and even our…

Prana Halle Jogger II Pants Are Just Right

By Jill | March 25, 2022

Despite having perfectly good travel pants that can handle a wide variety of occasions (comfortable enough to wear on the plane, stylish enough to wear in town, high-performance enough to wear on an adventure), I’m forever on the lookout for more. Pants that can do it all, or at least almost all, remind me of…

Keep Your Drinks Cool with Hydro Flask 12-ounce Slim Cooler Cup

By Jill | March 18, 2022

There used to be a time when I’d tuck a koozy into my bag when traveling, because you never knew when you’d need one. Nowadays, they’ve become so ubiquitous that I can usually find one anywhere. The insulated sleeves designed to keep a can of beer or soda cool are perfectly low tech and easy…

Swiftwick Flite XT Trail Socks Help You Reach Your Highest Peak

By Jill | March 11, 2022

I’m tired of adventure socks that slip and those that don’t dry quickly, so I recently ditched a bunch of them and made room for better socks in my drawer. I’m always happy to test out new socks, because I truly believe I’ll find my favorite—one that I’ll buy in a variety of colors and…
