By Jill | September 16, 2022

Flip-flops and slippas aren’t for everyone. To some of us, the sandals are a staple of our wardrobe—whether we choose the casual models for every-day wear or the leather versions for “dress up.” To others, they can cause challenges with foot comfort, especially with excessive toe-gripping.   But that doesn’t mean you have to walk…

Vim & Vigr Compression Legwear Is Like a Hug Around Your Legs

By Jill | August 19, 2022

The days are long past when we thought compression legwear was for athletes or health concerns like lymphedema, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), or pre- and post-surgical applications.

Taste Nature with Juniper Ridge Botanical Teas

Light Your Way with Thousand Traveler Magnetic Bike Lights

By Jill | August 5, 2022

One of the things I always pack on a trip is a bike light. Even if I’m not traveling for a specific cycling trip, I may end up renting a bike, and lights aren’t often included. Sure, I could bike around in the early morning and late evening without a light, but why tempt fate…

In my forever struggle to use only a carry-on bag while traveling, I’m constantly scrutinizing my wardrobe to get the best multi-use out of it.

Helly Hansen Women’s Rapide Lifaloft Air Jacket Lets You Pack Light and Stay Warm

By Jill | July 8, 2022

While I’ll admit that I’m not a “carry on no matter what” traveler, due to some of my adventures being rather gear intensive, I do try to avoid checking a bag. That’s especially helpful this summer, as the airline industry tries to get back up to pre-pandemic service levels despite there still being a pandemic.…
