Incase DSLR Sling Pack Camera Bags

camera0.jpg The perfect camera bag is hard to find. I even have categories of them ~ functional for travel (hand carry and/or check in) ~ perfect incognito bag (usually a big purse!) Lately i’ve been needing a good solution for the travel/hand carry side of things. Something padded to carry my usual amount of tech and basic purse essentials when paired with a roller carry-on for quick (or efficiently packed) trips. Intrigued by the Incase Camera Collection, i was also overwhelmed and baffled by the sizing and options… when narrowing it down, most alluring were the DSLR Sling Pack and DSLR Pro Sling Pack. But was the Sling big enough? Was the Pro Sling too big? The pictures on the site were hard to decipher for sure… SO ~ the kind folks at Incase sent both over for me to compare and share! Take a peek at the sizes and how they seem as i cram things into them on the next page!

Amazonian Insects

bugs.jpg The latest dose of natural inspiration from our resident zoologist and London-based editor, Justine Aw.

The diversity of wildlife is astounding and nowhere more is that more evident than amongst the insects, a class that account for about 80% of the world’s animal species. As a ‘creepy crawly’ loving kid and amateur entomologist, I’ve been lucky enough to encounter a pretty wide range of insects, nonetheless I was blown away by the array of insect life we encountered during our trip to the Amazon rainforest. Despite the fact that the trip was not an explicit entomological expedition, far from it, we found our boat home to hundreds of incredible insects that were attracted during the night to our rather conspicuously bright white boat, the Captain Logan, as we traveled along the Rio Negro!

The Amazon is thought to be home to a staggering 20 million insect species, which just goes to show how tiny and insignificant a fraction of the region’s biodiversity these photos represent, but nonetheless capture the impressive variations in shapes, colors and textures evolved to fit a variety of lifestyles and offer a glimpse into the rainforest. I was paricularly amazed by the variety of moths who ranged from ultrasleek to heavily furred, from streamlined stealth bombers to complex origami masterpieces. More photos of these incredible insects on the next page.

Hotel Tonight San Diego Escape

beach0a.jpg This super stormy socal weekend, we decided to wander down to San Diego… having lived there for years i’d walked/driven by so many of the la jolla hotels but never stayed in them! After months of vicariously browsing the HotelTonight app on our phones around noon to see what hotel offers popped up each day, it finally seemed like the right time to be spontaneous about it! And San Diego Beach Cities were a recent addition as far as deal locations ~ also love that you can even book a deal for up to a few nights (for that spontaneous weekend away or so!) Take a peek on the next page at our spontaneous La Jolla adventures thanks to Hotel Tonight which landed us at La Valencia and the super new Pantai Inn… as well as a look at their lovely app and UI! It was hard not to book another random night and stay longer, but alas, it was time to get home!

American Airlines Eames Amenity Case

eamesAA0.jpg On unexpected Eames ~ when hopping the flight back from Rio to New York, i was pleasantly surprised to discover American Airlines had an Eames Office Exclusive for American Airlines amenity pouch using their Eames Dot Patter! So cute, and a fun splash of design. According to the press release, these started in September of 2011 ~ “Beginning Sept. 1, customers traveling onboard American’s flights between the U.S. and London Heathrow (LHR) will be among the first to enjoy the new offerings. […] and an amenity kit featuring a bag with an authentic Eames Office® design pattern and containing Dermalogica® skincare products and other travel necessities complete the new suite of amenities.” Take a peek at the details on the next page!

Carnaval Sambodromo Veuve Clicquot Style

dromo00.jpg From 9pm to around 6am various scuolas perform hour long samba-filled parades rallying up the crowds down the Sambodromo for Rio’s Sambe e Carnaval - not one, but TWO nights in a row! As you’ve seen, our friends at Veuve Clicquot brought us to Rio to experience it their way… which included everything from the helicopter tour to VIP seats to watch these incredible parades! (Yes, all. night. long!) While pictures and videos can barely do the experience in person justice… also fascinating is the Sambodromo! I can’t stop staring at the pics comparing our helicopter fly over of the space to the hours of samba parade/dancing spectating we did! Take a peek at the fly overs, the viewing spaces, and a few random samba parade pics on the next page!

p.s.
According to wikipedia - “The Sambadrome (“Sambódromo” in Portuguese) was designed by Oscar Niemeyer and built in 1984. It consists of 700 m stretch of the Marquês de Sapucaí street converted into a permanent parade ground with bleachers built on either side for spectators.”

Rio Carnaval Beach Madness

beach0.jpg Still cleaning up photos (out of hundreds) between Rio madness with Veuve Clicquot… the beach during carnaval is insanity. So here’s a quick peek of pics of Ipanema from HELICOPTER… Hotel Fasano ROOFTOP… then from ON the beach. SO many people! And red umbrellas. And gorgeous weather… see it on the next page!

p.s. WAY more to come on the helicoptering. Absolutely stunning views which lead to FAR too many pics to figure out how to sort so far…

Rio Carnaval with Veuve Clicquot: Part I

rio0.jpg Apparently i didn’t even realize i needed a break until i landed in Rio after a long flight from NYC. And immediately we’re surrounded by music, fun, and incredibly happy people everywhere… not to mention endless Veuve Clicquot awaiting us at the Santa Teresa Hotel which will be home for the next few nights. Though i’ve only been here for a few hours… take a peek at the lovely room complete with hammock on the patio… and poolside drinks/lunch. The official launch party at the Copacabana is tonight, so i’d best run off and prepare… but had to share the relaxing fun and a peek down at remnants of street parades passing by next to us first! See it on the next page…

Chandelier Creative Surf Shack Honey

surfshack0.jpg Over the summer, our friend’s at Chandelier Creative had an awesome Surf Shack in Montauk… and around the surf shack, they also have beehives filled with 20,000 honeybees! Well, come new years, a fun jar of honey arrived (part of their 75 limited edition bottles)~ “Our Chandelier bees will each have flown over 500 miles: feeding in gardens from the McMansions in the Hamptons to the surf-side gardens. Our queen bees kept a loving eye over all their devoted workers ensuring they made the best honey possible. So from our hive to yours, we wish you a sweet 2012.” What a fun way to ring in 2012… take a peek at last summer and an unboxing of this playfully delicious honey on the next page!
