Going to the beach is fun yet you end up lugging around a lot of stuff; towels, sunscreen, magazines, water bottles,etc. If you have kids you can basically triple that amount by adding in toys, hats, and extra clothes. Therefore beach bags are a must, but they come in all different shapes and styles from elegant to laid back or even extra funky. Find the right one for you and it will make going to the beach a breeze (or should we say it will look easy!).
For the classy golden girl we love Lilly Pultizer’s Resort Tote. It features a metallic gold umbrella print and has a water-resistant finish. It also has an interior zippered section for your wallet and cellphone plus a clip for your keys, so it’s practical and stylish.
Keep everything laid back with Sun ‘N’ Sand’s Hatteras tote which is made from hand woven natural straw. The bag is fully lined with pockets for your valuables and has a magnetic snap closure. It’s the perfect accessory for a day lounging in the sun sipping a Mai Tai.
Life is Good‘s Sling Beach Bag Stripes may not be large enough to fit your towel (unless you have a really small towel) but it’s so cute you might be willing to look passed that and carry your towel on the side. This cute backpack style beach bag has chunky nautical and Life is Good printed right across the front.
Think about the number of ways in which life has changes. The first thing that you’ll be probably be reminded of is how the advent of technology and the internet have changed the way you study, read a book and even shop. Online shopping, for one, is a rage since the day that it was conceived. However, do you purchase everything online?
Probably not! There are still a few things that you need to check before you buy. For example, oversized people rarely buy clothes online until they are extremely sure of their size. Similarly, many people do not purchase shoes online.
Though everything is easily available online, those who belong to a certain age group are still in the habit of going to the mall or the market and getting things. For the aged, carrying things is not an easy task and they need help for it. They however insist on carrying their own load all by themselves. To make life a little simple for them, how about gifting them a smart cart? Using this lug, they can shop around easily without having to worry about carrying kilos of things around. They can simply keep things in the Portable Cart and drag it around.
Now, if you are thinking that smart carts are just for the aged or the old, think again. How many times does it happen that when you are out shopping, you drop the idea of buying something just because it will take you an extra bag to carry the stuff? In case, you want to shop free of worry, a smart cart is the thing for you. With it, you can shop to your heart’s content. And that too without feeling exhausted because of the amount of bags that you otherwise carry in your hand.
There is another wonderful way in shopping carts help you complete your shopping. This is the way in which they keep the things that you have shopped for packed and safe. In case you are in no mood to arrange these things in the shelves or drawers, you can for the time being, keep them lying in the lug.
This way you can keep your rooms or home free of clutter, for, you do not need to take these things out of the haul as soon as you come back home from shopping. Is there any other advantage of using a shopping cart? Yes, there is. And you will definitely be able to understand that benefit in case you are a parent of little kids. It is almost impossible to shop with your cute devils around. They are attention demanding. But more than that, they are very demanding.
If you take them to nearby mall or the local market, they will scream for anything that they like or want. They might also ask you to give them your credit card or walk away with it to the shopkeeper. Kids pick up things very quickly. So, how do you manage? One of the ways is to make them stay home. However, that is not possible every time. You therefore ought to take them along shopping, you must have a quick cart that you can keep your stuff, or the baby in. Simple isn’t it? Now, you can concentrate on the shopping while your toddler quietly sleeps inside the shopping cart.
There are innumerable other ways in which a lug can be of help. Read as much as you can about the various types of hauls available in the market to keep updated about them as well as their uses.
When running through airport security it’s easy to want to throw on some sweats or yoga pants for a comfortable flight. Celebrities, however, don’t have the luxury of comfy casual wear as airports are a great place for paparazzi pics. Take a cue from the stars and travel in style without sacrificing comfort.
One great celeb trick is a big comfy scarf. Charlize Theron, Miranda Kerr, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have all bundled up when traveling. A scarf adds dimension and interest to your outfit. Plus can be worn as a shawl to help keep you warm on a chilly plane.
Drawstring pants can look really polished when paired with a structured blazer and heels. This trend can be tricky as it’s easy to look like you’re walking around in your pajamas. Miranda Kerr’s printed Joie pants are effortlessly chic and comfortable enough for a 15 hour flight.
A structured oversized bag is a great way to look polished and carry everything you need from an extra sweater to all the devices you use to stay entertained while en route.
So ditch the sweats and reach for your favorite celeb inspired look. Just make sure not to forget the sunglasses, as you’re sure to be mistaken for a Hollywood A-lister!
When shopping for luggage, there are endless choices in styles and sizes of travel bags for men like duffle bags, overnight bags, carry-on bags, garment bags, and full size suit cases. Usually, travel bags are constructed of heavy-duty nylon or polyester fabrics, but if you are looking for something a little more luxurious, you can opt for leather ones. The prices can vary depending on the maker and the size of the bag, but generally, they can last longer than other fabrics and will definitely be easier to spot your own luggage on the turn-style.
I needed a new soft briefcase a week ago and I needed it stat. Luggage and the like takes some deliberation over what size, color, and material (though I don’t know how anyone could settle for anything less than leather), so I did my due diligence albeit in quickly. Since I was primarily interested in something compact (I already have a vintage American Tourist suitcase for heavy loads) I eventually decided on a piece from Jack Georges, a well-known bag manufacturer. I’m very impressed by the item for the following reasons.
The piece is clearly constructed by precise hands, with the leather being in excellent shape. The stitching is without divergence and the flap goes up and down just as one would want it to. The handle is sturdy at the grip but also easily adjusted at the ends. The buckle for the flap clicks open without a hitch while also serving as a sturdy lock. The pocket making up the back could fit a number of papers pretty cozily.
There are a few compartments inside ranging in size; I keep a small digital camera the biggest one, pens and the like in another and a phone charger in one too. The bag conforms nicely when several items, e.g. a notebook and folders in my case, are inside the pouch. There is also a long zipper pocket that is very useful for carrying business cards, a bottle of cream, lip balm, etc.
The only (tiny) gripe I have with this briefcase is that the inside would serve be a little roomier. But, hey, I guess they call it slim for a reason.
Overall, a great buy and would recommend it to anyone. Unfortunately, this specific model has been discontinued, so your only bet is finding it online. Good luck! It’ll be worth the hustling.
