Photographs are a ticket to travel back through our memories. Leafing through pictures of our travels with friends upon return is almost as fun as living it. Mixbook has created the perfect app for the digital age: Mosaic, which enables iPhone shutterbugs to create albums of their travels. It’s as simple as selecting twenty pictures and pressing a button.

Conceived as a way to wear your commute as a badge of honor, the Commuter Collection by Lauren Makai has delicately re-imagined the highways and byways that have caused us to yell at inanimate objects with such vitriol we would shudder to hear it repeated, transforming the beast on our back into gorgeous emblems of our victory over asphalt.
Hello, Summer! Long days that creep into nights, filling our memories with adventures that are just begging for a soundtrack. We all have those iconic songs that remind us of that crazy summer when we __________-ed all summer long, and all that is left is the memory. All you need to unlock that memory is a needle drop of that summer beat and your adult self is instantly transported to that (likely adolescent) summer, through the only means of time travel we currently have: music.
This summer you may find yourself traveling past the borders of the US of A without a company phone, or perhaps you are your company, in which case, the bill unfortunately comes to you. If you want to save some money for souvenirs, you can mitigate those International calling fees with just a few simple steps before you leave the country.
Whether heeding some precautions or winging it on airplane mode, if you don’t want to come home to find a massive cell phone bill waiting for you from your trip abroad, I have some apps to help you.
Traveling with a cocktail is a bit tricky, what with open beverage laws and such. However, a lovely flask cocktail can certainly grease the social wheels on such occasions as summer picnics, sporting events, bonfires, or your in-laws’ backyard barbeque. Here are some of my favorite flasks and flask accoutrements, as well as a cocktail that I think is perfect for a flask.
[dropcap2]T[/dropcap2]here comes a time in everyone’s life, usually in your mid-20s, when every weekend—probably in the summer—you will find yourself getting salmon from a buffet line, eating cake, and then dancing to “Shout.” This is known as the joyous period that is wedding season. Don’t get me wrong, I love weddings. I laugh, I cry, […]
The other day in one of our meetings, Autumn was remarking about a friend who was a successful actress, having a baby and launching a new clothing line, asking out loud “How does she do it all?” That is a question we often ask ourselves here at Move LifeStyle. Since there is no single path to success, and everyone’s process is a little different, we’ve been fortunate to learn from each other’s attempts to juggle life, families, careers and everything in between. Being a woman has added challenges, and it has been these stories of women who triumph, despite the possible pratfalls, that have resonated with us as we navigate this career landscape ourselves. Girl Friday is the embodiment of that line of questioning, and one of our favorite columns here at Move LifeStyle. We are inspired by the lives of working women and the circuitous paths that their lives take. Here are a few of our favorites, in the hope that you will be as inspired as we have been.
Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time for a little recharge after the winter doldrums. It’s important to celebrate the little things; for us, that is those fleeting moments that I get to spend with friends. So to add to our month of celebrations, we planned a rustic Bloody Mary Brunch. I can’t think of a better way to spend a late lazy morning than with my girlfriends. Lives on-the-go can take their toll, so we all need to make space to relax.
Our readers were so inspired by our Girl Friday interview with instigator provocateur Jenny Mollen Biggs, that we thought you might like to know a little more about goes on in that head of hers. I have known Jenny since High School and while she would gag at my maudlin interpretation of her as my inspiration mood board, she has always inspired me to be a little brave and to laugh at myself every once in a while. If you missed it, here is the interview with writer, actress, and schadenfreude connoisseur, Jenny Mollen Biggs. Here are some of her favorite things:
Celebrations are one of the universal human experiences. Across cultures and places, we live through life’s highs and lows. Though mourning is also universal, it’s the unique ways we express joy that captivates my attention as I travel. I’ve been on the road since 2008, and since this month’s theme is celebrate, I knew I wanted to share one of the most beautiful festivals I have been a part of over the years: Thailand’s Loy Krathong celebrations.
