One of my favorite things about traveling to a foreign country is discovering the local cuisine. Yes, of course I mean going to fun restaurants — from fancy, upscale places to out of the way dives — but I also like to hit up the nearest convenience store and ogle their selection of Doritos. (Truth be told, I was almost as excited about the array of Doritos being sold at the snack shop outside the Mayan ruins in Tulum as I was about the actual scenery inside.) Did you know that Doritos have been around since 1964 and there have been over 100 varieties sold all over the world? I found all this out last night, as I read about the news that the founder of Doritos, Arch West, had died and was going to be buried with his iconic chips. One story that came across my newsfeed: 102 Doritos Flavors From Around The World. Despite my travels, there were so many I had no idea about, including a few that whet my appetite – Atomic Chile Limon? Yes please! — but way more that made my stomach heave.

After a long day of writing and editing at The Frisky, I like to take a nice long soak in a bathtub. I drink a glass of wine, put on some music or a podcast, and read a book. I party hard. Occasionally I even take pictures of my feet poking out amongst the bubbles and post them on Facebook because I like to live on the edge and play with electronics near water. In short, my nighttime soaks come with a lot of easily damageable accessories — gadgets, books, and precious, precious wine — and I need a safe place to set everything while I stew. Hence, I’m itching to buy this Umbra bamboo and chrome bathtub caddy — there’s even a place to rest my book upright! That’s awesome, as I’m supposed to be relaxing and holding a book requires effort. Sold.
