Secretive Tourist

secretive tourist

Mom and I are off to Spain on Friday to visit our brother Dan!  My new camera will make it more challenging to be a secretive tourist but the pictures will be well worth it.  In choosing a camera bag last week, I couldn’t commit to anything expensive yet so at just $10, this one will serve the purpose perfectly for this trip.  A comfortable shoe, breathable clothes and minimal jewelry are my travel staples along with extra sunscreen and water.  We used the Top 10 book last year in Istanbul and it was perfect because it lists the Top 10s of everything in the city (museums, restaurants, neighborhoods) with pull out maps but is also slim  enough to fit in any bag which make them the perfect secretive tourist companion.  The weather forecast calls for high 70s and clear skies throughout the majority of our trip and is just what the doctor ordered after this brutal winter.

Andy surprised with me a new camera last week as an early birthday gift just in time for my trip to Madrid next week!  I am on the hunt for a great but not outrageous camera bag that will be stylish enough to carry around without looking like a news reporter on top of being a tourist.  Just as with all their products, I love the Lo & Sons one but it’s not what I want to spend and am looking for similar options with a cheaper price tag.  What do you use?

Spotlight On: Statement Earrings

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 8.33.03 PMIt’s no surprise that I love statement jewelry but I mostly stick to necklaces and bracelets and rarely branch out from a simple stud.  With several weddings coming up this year, I’m hoping to try out some different statement earrings to amp up a simple dress and get a different look for photos.  How do you wear your favorites?
