Set Your Feet Free With Bernardo Boots

August 30, 2015 by  

Share:
Truth be told, I hadn’t heard of Bernardo Shoes before fairly recently. Sure, they’ve been around since 1946 and among serious fashionistas, they likely know the brand — after all, they’re most known for their comfy and stylish sandals, which we’re still dying to test out. We started with a pair of chic rain boots however as we have a couple of rainy stops this summer and fall on our destination list. Let’s be honest, most rain boots are functional but pretty far from stylish. The sleek design of this rain bootie combines fashion and functionality and has a comfortable 1.25″ heel so you have a little lift while keeping it comfortable, which is a must for any avid traveler. While at first glance, you might think this bootie is made of leather, a closer up look will highlight its all-over rubber material which is designed to keep your feet dry.
The elastic sides allow you to easily slide your foot into the boot, with a fun lace-up detail. I found it very easy to slip my foot in and out…

Sauvage Swimwear, Where Luxury, Chic Design & Diversity Meet

August 17, 2015 by

You’ve probably noticed that we’re starting to do a lot more with Fashion at We Blog the World and part of that is due to the fact that we see an increasing need for identifying and curating products, gear, clothing, shoes and beauty products that are both functional but also stylish, elegant and chic. Ever notice how hard it is to find functional and gorgeous in one outfit? Or a pair of shoes? Or active wear? You’ll start to see more active wear from us in the coming weeks and months and as part of our ramping up of our style and wear coverage, we’re diving into the world of swim suits. In our research, we came across SAUVAGE swimwear! There’s one word to start things off: WOW!! Here’s what blew me away about their site and their approach to swimwear even before we got suits in hand. They tout themselves as designers of luxury swimwear, active wear, and accessories for men and women. They’re certainly not new to the market, having been around since 1985, but what they are when compared to so many other brands at the same price point, is fresh, elegant and…

AlcoMate Revo Digital Breathalizer Uses State-of-the-Art Cell Technology

August 16, 2015 by  

Share:
The AlcoMate Revo Digital Breathalyzer is a nifty compact device that can fit in your luggage when you’re traveling or in your car, so you can use it after dinner before driving home. They claim that their flagship product, the Revo is the first and only breathalyzer available that combines the ultimate precision of advanced fuel-cell sensing with PRISM technology, which allows any end user to quickly and easily replace a pre-calibrated sensor module directly and eliminate the need re-calibration. This is my understanding of what that means in English — because of this PRISM technology, it can be more accurate than most other models in the market. With PRISM technology, Day 1 accuracy and performance is restored with every sensor module replacement, which re-calibration cannot provide. Unlike other breathalyzer manufacturers that I found in my research, this one comes with a patented pre-calibrated replaceable intelligent sensor module (PRISM) which allows you to change the breathalyzer’s sensor on your own when needed. This exclusive technology eliminates the potential for downtime without the product, the need to mail it back and forth for calibration service, and the risk of gradual sensor breakdown typical of other breathalyzers. Most…

Tommy Bahama, the King of Flexible & Fun Mix and Match Swimsuits

August 12, 2015 by

I used to love shopping for swimwear, after all, there were so many choices and I was as thin as they come in my twenties. Designs have changed over the years but a mainstay I wore in my twenties and can still wear today in my forties are suits from the classic and well known brand Tommy Bahama. If you know the brand, but don’t know what they’ve been up to lately, you’ll be happily surprised by their diverse and comprehensive selection. What I love about shopping on their site is the navigation — you can choose a suit by type, color or style, or you can choose by body shape and they have a guide to help you figure out where you fall. You can also mix and match since they sell tops and bottoms separately, which is a godsend for detail oriented people like me. Personally, I like to have lots of style and color choices. And so, off I went on the site to search for some suits in blue. Why? In my forties, my greatest assets are sadly no longer a flat stomach and tone legs like they were in my twenties,…

Briggs & Riley Touts Stylish & Elegant Bags With Effortless Navigation

August 1, 2015 by

I’ve been wanting to expand our luggage reviews for awhile now. We first started out doing a lot of tech products (and well, we still do given my 20 years of experience in the tech world), but when you think of the kinds of products (and accessories) which can be transformative on the road, luggage is certainly high on the list for most of us. Truth be told, luggage never used to be important to me. In other words, it wasn’t a priority as long as it was big enough and didn’t have a hole in it. I love luxurious products and am a fan of all things elegant and yet, with luggage, it was always purely functional for me for some reason. Purses…..well, that’s an entirely different story! Now that I’ve experienced and am using high end luggage lines on a regular basis, there’s no question that it matters….and, it matters a lot. Older style wheels are pathetic and draining to say the least. Imagine walking the full length of Dallas, Paris or Chicago airports dragging two heavy pieces of luggage on small non-rotatable wheels. It’s not only laborious, but by the time you arrive at your gate, you’re…

3 Point Products for Carpel Tunnel, Overuse & Pain Relief

July 28, 2015 by

For the sports minded among you, no doubt, you have experienced pain over the years from an injury or overuse, whether that be from playing basketball, tennis, golf or simply doing too much in the back garden. As an avid traveler knows, you’re also lifting heavy bags even if you’re smart enough to own luggage with the advanced wheels that ride smoothly alongside you. Ultimately, there’s always some lifting involved on the road or at home. Let’s face it – a big part of what I do on a daily basis is write, whether that be articles about travel or great products or writing plans and content for clients. If you don’t have a desk job, you will likely be using your limbs differently, perhaps more rigorously. The other thing activity which has increased over the last five years is cell phone use — it’s hard to get away from demands placed on us when people have the ability to text and email us wherever we happen to be; the pressure to respond immediately is astonishing. Every day at the gym, there are women in their twenties who bring their cell phones into the sauna with them – their thumbs…

Classic Accessories, A Stylish & Effective Way To Cover Your Gear

July 23, 2015 by

If you travel and in particular love adventure travel, no doubt you have plenty of gear. I know I certainly do and I live in a small abode in San Francisco, so don’t have the luxury of space that many may have if they live in more rural areas or a suburb. Let’s be honest — the basement, closets and attic overflow with stuff that you collect over the years. Your patio or backyard could look neater. One of the things that occurred to me as I started visiting friends for barbecues earlier this summer is how many people didn’t either cover their gear or if they did, the covers looked dingy, as if they were falling apart and frankly, unattractive — in other words, they didn’t all look like the lovely visual you see below, where the covers blend in with the environment and are matched with the furniture itself. When you leave home on a trip, it’s important to cover your gear so it’s protected from rain and other climatic ailments when you’re gone — even in the summer. Rain rusts your gear and I’ve noticed, even after staining and putting weather resistant slabs…
