Well, it was another week that went sideways. That seems to be the theme this month, though I’m trying to roll with it and not regard it as a harbinger for the rest of the year. 🤣
Our remaining dog Coco who just turned 14 has had some health issues and has been in and out of the animal hospital since last Saturday. (First for a stroke, which she’s recovering from well, now for what may be a bout of pancreatitis. We’ll know more Saturday.) Thursday night I had my own severe bout of stomach malaise, which I’m still recovering from. (“It’s always somethin’…” – Roseanne Roseannadanna.) I’m just going to go on record here and say Thank Goodness for legal pot in California, which is the only thing that effectively settles my stomach.
January Sales: Travel Favorites
I’m working on an updated Travel Shoes post, but in the meantime, I didn’t want you to miss out on this opportunity to pick up my favorite brand of weatherproof (and comfortable!) shoes on sale. Aquatalia is offering 30% off sitewide this weekend with code WKND30.
I’ve been meaning to replace my black weatherproof travel booties with something more in my color palette, so have this pair on order to try. (But if you like black, it’s also available in black leather and suede.) I like that slightly squared-off toe which feels of-the-moment, but not so much so that they’ll look dated in a few seasons. While they are rather simple, the lack of metal adornment means they’ll be less likely to set off metal detectors when traveling.
Lands’ End has 40% off your order with code FLURRIES. If you’ve been thinking about picking up that packable down coat I mentioned here. it’s included in the promotion, and there’s still a good selection of sizes and colors available. Plus HERE.
In addition to the Pearl Crossbody bag I mentioned earlier this week, Lo & Sons has another of my favorite travel bags included in their Winter Sale. This is the O.G. 2, an updated version of the one I’ve often used as my “Personal Item.” It’s a nice balance between lightweight and structured, and has plenty of great organization including a padded laptop sleeve and a pocket for spare shoes or extra clothing. Select colors marked down.
Merino wool is one of my favorite travel fabrics. It’s comfortable in a range of temperatures, washable, and doesn’t pick up odors. This simple top has a little bit of shimmer to take it up a notch from Basic Black. Currently 60% off.
