Bright Green work for work and play with a hole punch to make you green with envy and a refreshing minty cocktail for the first days of summer.
On the Move

’tis the time of year when resolutions are made and broken. Best laid plans, like shedding those holiday pounds that so easily found their way into your winter wardrobe, are easily brushed aside when life, or rather work calls: A conference in Vegas, clients in Chicago, a company retreat in Tuscon. Living out of a suitcase really puts a cramp in your workout regime. No one wants to run into their boss while sweating like a pig on the stationary bike, and anyway, running hamster in the hotel gym just gets monotonous.
Women are usually assigned one of two roles in films: doting mother and wife, or single workaholic klutz who is constantly frazzled, and yet always played by a ridiculously gorgeous woman. Actually, make that three: A lot of the time they also play hookers.
There are a few films where women get to kick ass, either literally, (hello, Lara Croft and Lisbeth Salander), or figuratively, (in their careers), or just make us laugh ’til we cry. (Kristen Wiig in pretty much anything). Today we are focusing on the ones that have made us think about our lives as professional women and the lessons we can learn from them. Whether an overanxious TV producer, a legal assistant with a push-up bra, or a devil that has great taste in handbags, our hats are off to them. Make some popcorn and get watching.
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.
From the uplifting to the inane, internet videos can easily overwhelm the casual viewer, making said viewer feel like a blind captain navigating floating detritus in a sea of mediocrity. Yet, we have all had that moment, when your BFF posts a link to YouTube on your Facebook page that instantly makes you feel like the internet was tailor made just for you. That is the beauty of the internet; there is something for everyone.
For me, tech and travel is all about two things: power and connectivity. Comfort is a a very close second. I have built my life around being able to access nearly everything through an internet browser, so if I can’t get online, that is a problem.
When you’re a gadget girl like myself, the one thing you find scarce when you’re traveling is power. It’s hard to find a free outlet to charge your *insert gadget here* and when you’re up in the air, it is even more difficult to find power way up there. So here are my favorite gadgets to keep you powered up and connected whenever you venture out of your nest.
A little bit about me: I used to be a PC. I grew up on PCs, built my own PC and lived with all the bells, whistles, and frustrations PCs had to offer. Then one fateful day, I met one of those artistic types and fell in love… yadda, yadda, yadda… now I’m a Mac.
