Fun Finds on Friday

We travel a lot during the summer months, and the first of our trips (down to Chicago for a bit) is coming up soon. So this week’s edition of Fun Finds is all about being on the go.

I love my camera. So very, very much. But it’s a bit of a monster, and definitely not suitable for stashing in a handbag. The camera on my iPhone has become my replacement point and shoot, and it works beautifully – especially via Instagram. But how much cooler would those vacation photos be with this sweet 3-in-1 lens set, with fisheye, macro, and wide angle lenses included?!

Whenever I travel, I’m always sure to pack a ton of sunglasses because I always know I’m going to lose or break at least one pair before my return. This adorable pair is only $9, and at that price I can justify throwing a few more in the suitcase.

A pair of shorts I can dress up or down saves me space in my bag – which means I have more room to pack another pair of shoes. You know I like that. Plus, this pair is a mere $16.99, which means I can afford to buy another pair of shoes. And you know I LOVE that.

This dress has an easy breezy vacation feel to it, no matter what your destination is. Bonus: it’ll hide the food baby I’m sure to acquire after a few rounds of deep dish pizza and other Chicago specialties.

Do you have travel plans this summer? What do you plan to pack?


  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and… [Continue Reading]

    Kids are So Creative!
  • As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute… [Continue Reading]

    WIW to the Oscars
  • Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here. After… [Continue Reading]

    Vacation Rewind
  • I’ve shard in the past my struggles with sleeping. (check out this post – our readers shared TONS of great ideas for getting better sleep at night!) There is nothing like the feeling of being well rested. And if there is any time I’m going to catch up on my zzz’s, it’s while I’m on… [Continue Reading]

  1. Once again, I love all of your picks! Seriously, the sunglasses, the shorts, the dress! I may have to buy them all!

  2. Man, those shorts are amazing! :) We are actually going to Lebanon for most of August and it’s the first time I’ve been out of the country! I can’t wait! :) I am going to try to pack for two weeks in a carry on? Cna I do it?! YES! hahaha

  3. Love Chicago! Reminds me so much of Toronto.
    And I love those shorts.
    We’re off to Florida for 5 weeks at the beginning of the month. Can’t wait for the heat. We pack VERY light. More room for shopping!
