California has a way of making you feel that every spare moment must be spent outside, what with its diverse landscape, long coastline, and backbone of mountains. And even if your version of outside is the patio at the winery, it’s nice to spend your chill time as comfortably as possible. One of the dresses…

Help Keep Ocean Ecosystems Balanced with Costa OCEARCH Collection

By Jill / April 5, 2019 / 0 Comments

Sharks get a bad rap. Sure, as a kid I watched “Jaws” and was a little freaked out about even getting in my family’s swimming pool, but for every sensationalized shark terror film, there are tons of sharks going about their business in the world’s oceans without bothering humans. This past week, I swam with…

If you travel with a laptop and/or tablet, you’ve had that moment: When you really need to use it, and the battery is low. There won’t be a place to charge it in a while, and you wish you’d planned in advance. But you didn’t. Or, perhaps you’re regularly off the grid, and need to…

By Jill / March 22, 2019 / 0 Comments

Spring has sprung in the Northern Hemisphere and we know what brings all the flowers and green out this season, right? Rain.

Wet-Weather Flexibility With the Outdoor Research Guardian Jacket

By Jill / March 8, 2019 / 0 Comments

Finding the right rain jacket that can double to be equally useful on a hike and roaming through town can require a lot of trial and error. Sporty, performance jackets sometimes stand out like a sore thumb when you pair them with out-to-dinner wear, and the more stylish jackets often lack that necessary performance aspect.…

If you’re the kind of person who reads the first description of a piece of clothing, and then moves on if it’s described as good for a particular sport in which you don’t spend much time pursuing, I’m here to tell you to adopt a new behavior. Keep reading. Just because a jacket is “for…

When you’re traveling, it can be hard to keep up the same training routine you have at home. Whether it’s hard to wake up early on vacation, or you have to plan a new running route in a city with which you’re not very familiar, there are countless reasons to blow the whole thing off.…

Pack Your Essentials in Eagle Creek Global Companion 40L Backpack

By Jill / February 15, 2019 / 0 Comments

We often yearn for simple, stripped-down gear design, and then realize we can’t find anything. Sometimes, organization wins. The Eagle Creek Global Companion 40L has plenty of spaces to organize your gear, plus is carry-on size (13.75 inches x 21.5 inches x 8 inches) and fairly lightweight (3 pounds, 8 ounces). It’s not a top-open…
