10 Secrets To Summer Travel For Less

Think a summer getaway translates to an emptying of your wallet? Not necessarily. With a bit of research, some advance planning, and the following tips you can enjoy high times on a low budget this summer and beyond.

1. Train by travel. With gas prices on the rise again, and the cost of plane tickets not any better, trade in your car for an old-fashioned trip on a locomotive. Take a long weekend journey through New England, along California’s southern coast, aboard Canada’s famed Rocky Mountaineer, or else hop the cross-country Amtrak that will transport you from one ocean to another in less than a week.

Stylehiving: Elizabeth Hurley Is Electric In Purple

When it comes to color, electric purple is often a shade that gets overlooked despite being equally, if not more, sexy and flattering than the usual suspects like black and red. To help launch Sensuous, a new fragrance from Estee Lauder, the brand’s longtime spokesmodel, the gorgeous Liz Hurley, donned a killer form-fitted plunging v-neck cocktail dress. But you don’t have to be a supermodel to rock this bold color. A few months ago I veered away from my usual color scheme comprised of dark and neutral shades and wore an electric purple dress to a fashion event. The fashion risk paid off and the gorgeous bartender/model — because at fashion events, these labels are one and the same — complimented my color choice (and no, he was not gay), saying he’s always drawn to girls who go for such a shade because it radiates confidence and sex appeal.

Based on this tale, and how utterly phenomenal Liz Hurley looked in her purple frock, I’d say you’re insane not to give it a go and blaze an electrifying trail in this fierce color. To help you get the look, I’ve rounded up 5 dresses covering all price ranges, Keep reading »

Who knew paper napkins could make dinner a formal affair? [$5.95 for 20 napkins, The Spoon Sisters] Keep reading »

Crave: Bubble Calendar

Whenever a package arrived at my doorstep when I was little, my main question was not Is the package for me?, but Does the package include bubble wrap? Bubble wrap had the capability to consume hours of my life with gratifying popping, but it also kept my mind sharp because I would make myself try to remember which bubbles I had already popped. Now, as an adult, I can relive my childhood fetish with the Bubble Calendar. While $29.95 might seem a little steep, that’s for 365 days of popping! [Bubble Calendar] Keep reading »
