Style Pack Go – Sonoma

Sonoma Valley is the lower key, down to earth, casual sister to the more glamorous, higher maintenance, glossy Napa Valley. I've been wine tasting in both valleys and can attest to their rumored identities. I really like them both: the wine is amazing, the scenery gorgeous, and the passion of the people who live and...

Souvenir Sunday – India

I went to India on a group yoga and volunteer trip two years ago (read about it here). It was both challenging and rewarding. I had to purchase a duffle bag in India in order to fit all the goodies I bought while there (!). I know, a little ridiculous. I struggled with curating and... Continue Reading →

Style Pack Go: Volunteer trip to India

Travel is often a meditation for the soul. It is time to reset, explore places outside of our small daily world, broaden our understanding and gain perspective. This can be accomplished on your own, with your partner, with friends or with a group. I’ve been on two group trips in my life: one with my... Continue Reading →

Souvenir Sunday – Florence Leather

Among many other things (paper, food, art) - Florence is famous for it’s leather. There is a daily leather market that takes place in the Mercato del Porcellino which is a covered market dating back to the 1600’s on Via Calimala. Walking through this leather market is a big treat. The designs aren’t always the... Continue Reading →

Style Pack Go: Florence

I travelled most recently to Florence with friends in the fall. We went for a long weekend (I was living in London at the time) and had a fantastic time. I’m a huge fan of traveling during the ‘off season’ to avoid crowds. That said, I’m not sure there technically is an off season for... Continue Reading →

Souvenir Sunday – Florence

  Perfume is not the only thing I came back from Florence with (distended belly, some leather goods and a fresh appreciation for a certain Signore David), but it is the most memorable. Along with many other things, Florence is home to one of the world’s oldest pharmacies: Old Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella or Officina... Continue Reading →

1 Personal Item

I love a handbag, a purse, a sack, a satchel, a pocketbook, a knapsack, a clutch, a messenger, a backpack, a portmanteau, a valise — basically anything designed to carry stuff, I love. But with all the stuff we carry around it can be difficult to find the balance of function and fashion. I’ve been... Continue Reading →

Souvenir Sunday: Paris

In honor of Valentine’s Day I thought I would write about what I consider my loveliest souvenir. It was actually a gift from the amazing and crazy talented Barbara Agnes. Barbara is a scarf designer, she’s actually a scarf artist. She hand draws the patterns on her scarfs and she is seriously talented. Plus every... Continue Reading →

Style Pack Go: Amsterdam

I went to Amsterdam for a long weekend in early April. It. Was. Cold. Chill to your bone cold -  damp and rainy. So I was constantly wrapped up. The rain did get a little annoying, but I sometimes prefer touring a city when it’s colder and the cold suits Amsterdam. Here’s what I packed:... Continue Reading →
