Samsonite is a not just a brand but rather an industry, a global phenomenon as people from all parts of the world use the word “Samsonite” instead of the world suitcase or luggage these days. This brand has molded and single handedly created an industry as Ford did with automobiles. Samsonite International S.A. is the world's largest travel luggage company, with a heritage dating back more than 100 years.Read More

So, here’s the deal. You’ve woken up, eaten breakfast, done some minor chores, showered, and are now ready for the day, except… what do you wear? Do you accessorize? Do you have time? Or is it a lazy kind of day? Here are a few tips for how to accessorize depending on what you have going on. Are you going to work? Going to the gym? Going to lunch? A date? These are the main reasons, us girls get up in the morning. So here’s a helpful guide of what you should keep in your closet for any and all of these occasions, from small accessories to the ever needed purse. Peruse on and maybe your day will be just a little bit easier especially if you’re not really sure where to start.
1. Going to the gym
Not everyone goes to the gym first thing in the morning but if the increase in YogaWorks’ memberships and early morning classes are any indication, a lot of women are getting up early to get that cardio or toning sweat in. So what do you wear to the gym? Let’s be honest ladies, most of the time we always want to look good, but when it’s 6 in the morning we all just really want to be prepared. So, make sure you have these essentials before taking off for a hike, the gym, etc:
A gym bag. Simple I know, but so useful. You can have a simple drawstring bag to hold your essentials like keys, water, a towel, extra clothing or carry a nicer more durable over the shoulder nylon bag. The choice is yours, just make sure you bring one and that it is stocked with the items above! That’s really all you need. You should be dressed in your sport gear and wearing your tennis shoes already because you’ll most likely head back home to shower and prepare for work.
If you aren’t going to head back home after the gym, then make sure your bag is almost an overnighter and carries all the necessary tools of the trade for work ladies because gym sweat is not going to impress the cute guy in that corner office.
2. Going to work
If you skip the gym in the morning for an after work session, then you get up to get ready for your 9-5. There’s a bit more that goes into accessorizing for work, but the biggest thing is that you should definitely LAYER! Layer on the accessories and the clothing to make the work day, work for you. Most offices have that A/C running on high to keep everyone awake and hopefully more productive so a nice blazer or cute professional type jacket is always key so that you can remove it if it gets too hot when you go to lunch, etc. Also, wear something easy and plain under that jacket that won’t be too revealing if said jacket were to be removed or something with a nice print.
Don’t forget the earrings! Earrings are so simple and make an outfit so much better! Keep small dangling earrings and gold or silver studs to alternate days because keeping them somewhat neutral in style will keep it different, but matching every day.
The necklace. This is a little more stylistic. The simpler the better though, at least for work. I like to have 3-4 pieces, 2 that are long and layered a bit and 2 that are short, one simple and one chunky.
Last but not least to complete any ensemble is the bag. You must have a cute, professional bag for your work. Body side bags are perfect, but anything usually works as long as the colors aren’t too extreme, but going neutral and black always works!
3. Going to lunch
Or brunch or any casual activity. A cute light dress or sundress needs some simple accessories.
Sunglasses. Find a good pair or pairs and keep them at your side at all times. A good pair of sunglasses properly frames your face while protecting your eyes from all those UV rays.
Earrings. Same as before but you can match with some cutesy earrings with fun shapes like pineapples, sunflowers, etc. to brighten up the mood of your outing.
Necklace. Choose a cute long one or a simpler, smaller one to accentuate without distracting from the dress you’re wearing. One that fits your neckline is best. Nothing extravagant, remember, simpler is better!
Bracelets! With a dress and cute simple bracelet or a large band bangle works well to accent any dress especially those with skinny wrists.
Bag. Of course, the all essential bag. I keep these bright and colorful to match a sundress, but if you’re unsure, white or black works most of the time.
4. Dinner or more importantly, a date!
So now that you have so many options to choose from to accessorize with, you can expand on them a little bit more or you have everything you already need to make the perfect date outfit! There’s so many options, but as long as you match and feel good about yourself, then that’s all that matters. Make sure you’re wearing a nice dress
Earrings. Here is where I’d use the more fancy earrings and longer dangling earrings. You don’t want them too big though because that would just detract from your gorgeous face!
Necklace. Make sure it matches what you’re wearing. Anything will do, just make it fancier instead of kid-like.
Bag! A cute clutch is always recommended to keep bare essentials, but if you need more things for any emergency, then keep a large tote bag or stylish larger bag to keep by your side.
So there you have it, some basic tips about what type of accessories to use depending on where you’re planning on going! Just keep some basics like sunglasses, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and purses or bags and you’re all set! Neutral, black, beige, and white are always ideal, but don’t be afraid to venture into bright colors when you’re ready! Being a woman is tough, accessorizing can be easy. This is just a simple reminder of the basics that you need. Once you get more comfortable, expand on your collection!

A Different Perspective Of Hawaii Life
It is laidback to see why Hawaii has become equal with paradise. Just look at these sweet beaches, beautiful coral reefs and picture perfect volcanoes signaling daring souls.
Photographs of these islands dispersed in a baby blue ocean are wonderful, without the need for any tourist catalog exaggeration. The sunrises and the sunsets are so impressive and stunning that they are cause for festival all by themselves. As tropical vacations and getaways go, Hawaii could not be cooler or more worth the journey, although visiting these lovely islands is not always inexpensive. Whether you are fantasizing about swimming in waterfall pools or learning how to swim in the beautiful oceans or tanning on golden sand beaches of Maui, you will find what your heart desires here in Hawaii.
On the day of my first vacation in Hawaii with Miss Natalie, we landed in Oahu pretty much pennilessly, and with my Samsonite suitcase lost in the airport world of planes and terminals. We camped romantically on the beach, pulled fresh organic guava from trees above our blankets and spent days hiking in Oahu. When it comes to Hawaii, I will always be ready to go, just hand me my sandals and board shorts. Of course the sunblock and it has to be SPF 55 because she deserves nothing less.
What are types of outdoor activities for Hawaii?
Hawaii IS life outdoors. Whether it's surfing, swimming, fishing or paragliding in Hawaii, parasailing in Hawaii, skydiving in Hawaii, bungee jumping in Hawaii, with family, friends or Miss Natalie, meetings with the environment are filled with the customary Hawaiian significance of aloha – love and respect for the land.
But nothing really compares to hang gliding in Hawaii. From the experience Natalie and I had 5000 feet above ground.
What is Hawaiian Hang Gliding?
Hang gliding in Hawaii is an air sport in which the pilot flies a lightweight no motor airplane called a hang glider. Most contemporary hang gliders are produced of an aluminum frame with artificial sail cloth to create the wing. You, the pilot, are entrenched in a harness adjourned from the frame, and control it by fluctuating body weight in resistance to a control frame, but other procedures, including contemporary aircraft flight control systems, may be used in steering the hang glider in Hawaii.
What Spots Are Best For Hang Gliding In Hawaii?
The great part about Hawaii is that the options are so vast for hang gliding when it comes to locations and scenic views of landscapes. Natalie and I really did not have much money to go travel far for another spot to hang glide. We were stuck in Oahu, so we had to just glide there but it’s just as perfect and breathtaking as any other spot in paradise. Besides hang gliding in Oahu, the hang gliding in Maui is highly noted as one of the best places to hang glide in Hawaii, as well as the hang gliding in Honolulu and the Big Island.
Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get updates and to read part 2 of Hawaii Hang Gliding as we will discuss specific locations in Oahu, Maui, and Honolulu for hang gliding as well as the best clothing and accessories for hang gliding safety, and how to use your Go Pro during hang gliding in Oahu and Maui.

You are a mom? Even if you are not an actual mom, you are totally the mom of your friend group — I mean you have tissues calculators and more for any situation. Sometimes you act bitchy that people are always requesting you for things and adopt you will have whatever it is that they requisite, but you secretly love it. You may suffer from back pain from dragging all that weight around on one shoulder, but this is what happens from growing up a Girl Scout.Read More

When it comes to purses and handbags, we all know whom the leading kings and queens of the marketplace are. As much fun as it is to check out new assortments from big brands and rush over longtime darlings, we also consider in observance of a observant eye on what's next. In recent years, indie handbag designers like Mansur Gavriel and Edie Parker have risen rapidly from virtual insignificance, and we've got some thoughts about what the next brands to have that kind of influence might be.Read More

There are a number of purse styles that are appropriate for an interview. The choice of style comes down to whether the purse contributes to a cohesive look. One good tip is that the purse should match the woman’s shoes. Even if it is not a perfect match, the purse should definitely not clash with a woman’s shoes. The type of outfit the woman is wearing depends on what type of position the woman is interviewing for.Read More

If you could pick one ideal travel partner who would that be?
Your spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, parent or a colleague? Mine is my 4 year old son. I know, you might be shaking your head in disbelief but it’s true! He is, for the most part a great travel companion. We have traveled a good amount as a family since he was born so he knows what is expected of him and the steps involved. And I myself as a mother know what I need to plan for, and pack.Read More

Trick-or-treating is a customary practice for children on Halloween in many countries. Children in costumes travel from house to house in order to ask for treats such as candy (or, in some cultures, money) with the phrase "Trick or treat!". The "trick" is a (usually idle) threat to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given to them.Read More
