carry on

Dreaming of a weekend getaway... 

leopard carry-on. Get the weekend started off right! Believe it or not I actually own this.. Its light and durable.. Find it online at  flight 001 

For the more rustic weekend I would advise the Filson field bag on wheels. Love this bag.
If this trip means business this bag is a great choice. I love the lines of it and its very practical..

ahh.. J crew has done it again.. It doesn't hold much, but what are you taking anyway. This bag is more of an overnight bag but isn't it great?

Bon Voyage!

hot off the press!

Attention! New magazine alert!
Lonny Magazine has now launched.  Former Domino editor Michelle Adams launched the online only Magazine and I am loving it so far. The Magazine is published on a bimonthly basis in a traditional magazine print format on its web site.

the CLEANest shower

I read the book Clean by Alejandro Junger a couple of months ago after seeing it on GOOP. One of the things I took away from the book was the amount  of chlorine and other chemicals found in our water and how humans and other animals absorb them not just by drinking the contaminated water but more importantly absorbing them through the skin and inhaling the steam while in the shower or bath.  Consumers are trained to spend all this money and time trying to drink the cleanest water  and we are forgetting about the chemicals in the water we bathe in. After I read the book I did my research on full home water filters.. Maybe someday but they are just too expensive for now. After I realized that is not happening I started researching shower head filters and they are all SO ugly I just couldn't do it. Well a couple of weeks ago I decided to  do some more research to see if anything new had come out and sure enough  the people at Culligan.. Yes remember Culligan water sort of the equivalent of Sparkletts. Anyway Culligan came out with the shower head that you see above. It looks great and its super easy to install (according to Jesse:).Its $30 at Bed Bath and Beyond and you have to replace the filter every 6 months which I am hoping will be a satisfying (but sort of depressing filter change). I am loving this shower head and YES I completely notice a difference I can even tell there is more sheen in both Jesse and Bean's hair.  I am assuming its great for color treated hair as well. So until you can afford to go put a water filtration system on your house this is the next best thing. I can't wait to hear what you think.
