By Jill | January 21, 2022

A few weeks before Covid shut the world down in 2020, a fellow airplane passenger snarked at me for wiping down my immediate surroundings with an antibacterial wipe.

It’s a new year, and whether you make resolutions or not, we all need to take care of ourselves a little more.

By Jill | December 10, 2021

It happens more than I’d like to admit: Boarding a plane when I haven’t had enough time to fully charge my phone or tablet.

By Jill | December 3, 2021

I have fond memories of my first Timbuk2 messenger bag. It was 1994, 5 years after the company was founded, and I worked for HotWired—the first commercial online magazine, and sister to Wired. Employees all had Timbuk2’s Classic Messenger Bag in black, with either Wired or HotWired emblazoned on the front. I don’t remember when…

Travel and adventure are important. But it’s also important to have some down time at the end of the day. And when you’re traveling (or living) in cold climates, cozy slippers are excellent essentials to have.   I was a huge fan of last winter’s OluKai Kuʻuna slippers. But Iʻm also a fan of two…
