What to Wear on the Plane for a Super Long Flight

July 30, 2015 • By

I admit that I used to love to travel. (Does that sound a bit strange, coming from a travel blogger?)

Now,  I just like being in a new place. The act of getting there is often just a ‘necessary evil’.  Jaded? I’ don’t think so. But after years of doing what needs to be done, so that I can experience the beauty and magic of a new destination, I’ve gotten pretty good at it.

If you are lucky enough to be headed out to a far-away destination, I’ve got you covered. Here are my personal tips on what to wear on that long-haul flight.

Just remember, there are three basic rules: 1) Keep it Simple, 2) Stay Comfortable and 3) Be Prepared.  In the meantime, I’d still like to look good. Wouldn’t you?  So here’s what simple, comfortable and at least a little bit chic looks like to me.

8 Ways to Decorate with Vintage Luggage

July 24, 2015 • By

They don’t make suitcases like they used to…the older ones have character and patina, and you can still find affordable vintage suitcases at thrift stores and in antique shops for reasonable prices. Most vintage luggage has traveled far and wide; their once vibrant colors have faded and their leather has worn to a subtle softness – and what we use now is lighter and much more convenient for actual travel.

Fortunately, there is no shortage of alternative uses for vintage luggage. Here is my round-up of 8 Ways to Decorate with Vintage Luggage.

10 Amazing Bohemian Chic Interiors

July 16, 2015 • By

I just found out I was secretly voted “Most Likely to be Bohemian” in college…

Seriously.

I love Bohemian inspired design and expressing my inner gypsy, plus it fits right in with my ongoing global wanderlust. Boho style is a great way to show off your eclectic (random?) travel souvenirs and create an international feel that reminds you of all the places you’ve been – or the places you want to go!  I sometimes think of re-designing the whole house to suite the Bohemian style, but I think that Mr. H would have a mini meltdown. So for now, let’s just drool together over these amazing Bohemian inspired spaces.

Here are 10 Amazing Bohemian Chic Interiors.

Stylish Rental of the Week: Neve Tzedek

July 8, 2015 • By

I’m so excited about my latest vacation rental that I’ve decided to reinstate Rover’s “Stylish Rental of the Week” feature.  Stay tuned for a new holiday rental property every Wednesday!  This particular apartment embodies everything good about renting a home away from home.

First of all, the house is in a perfect location.  Tucked away on a residential street just steps from coffee shops, bakeries, stylish boutiques and a dozen top quality restaurants – living here, even on a temporary basis couldn’t be more convenient.  Neve Tzedek is my favorite area of Tel Aviv, filled with historic buildings turned into chic lofts and apartments.  The streets are narrow and pedestrian-friendly.  There are cafes on every corner.  And yet, with this rental, we were amazed to find convenient parking every day.  That’s a huge plus in a crowded city!

The property’s unique style greets you at the decorative front gate.  The blue door, small front patio, tall arched windows and hot-red bougainvillea blooms hint at what you’ll find inside.
