Cuba

An American Traveling to Havana: What You Need to Know

Many travellers want to travel to Cuba to touch the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, taste the Cuban rum and world-class cigars, listen to the infectious street music, learn about the history of tobacco, and simply soak up the country’s 1950’s back-in-time appeal. However what draws people to the tropical Caribbean island of Cuba is much more than beaches and antique 1950’s cars. It is a beautiful country, but more than anything else it is interesting, mysterious, difficult and challenging.

Cuba, unlike its neighbors, has been fractured by Communist rule that makes travelling here frustrating. Independent travel in Cuba, away from cruise ship excursions and guided tours, is not easy, but worth the challenge if you are curious enough to dig deeper. It may test one’s patience; yet, you cannot help but fall in love with Cuba and wishing to eventually go back and uncover more of its charm.

How to Plan a Picture-Perfect Beach Picnic

As heavenly and blissful as they may appear in meticulously filtered Instagram posts, beach picnics have their perils. Sand is inevitable and will find its way into your food. Seagulls are also inevitable. They will crowd around you and will caw for food scraps. But don’t let those environmental hazards stop you! Meals at the beach are easier to accomplish than you think, and they’re so worth it. If you want to have an Instagram-worthy beach picnic that will also be relatively simple to put together, read on.

My Favorite Picnic Wines: Landmark Vineyards

August is here and summer is almost over. Let’s take advantage of the warm weather for only a few more days and it’s time to rouse ourselves off the couch, quit the TV-and-takeout routine, and head outside with friends for a picnic, sipping something refreshing and cool. Bringing the right bottle of wine not only enhances the taste of picnic foods, it adds a pinch of European sophistication to outdoor eating. But choose well! If you’re going to drink all day, you have to plan accordingly.

Day drinking is a delicate art; the wrong wine will have you napping under a tree before the fun day even begins. You’ll want to bring a bottle of wine (or two) that is crisp and fresh, especially when the full heat of summer hits. I have been trying a lot of affordable and summer-friendly wines of late, and today I want to share my two favorite picnic wines: Landmark Vineyards 2016 Overlook Chardonnay and 2016 Overlook Pinot Noir.

How To Take Care Of Your Lips: Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balms

Everyone knows that it’s important to take good care of your body whether its feature or figure. There are plenty of areas of the body to focus on, but have you considered your lips as one? You ladies probably stock up your cabinet with cleansers, serums, creams, sunscreens, and masks; but do you have the proper care instruments for your lip? If you think about it, your lips are always exposed; they’re prone to dehydration. The skin on the lips is also unlike skin anywhere else on the body: it’s thinner and has no oil glands.  The result can be red, rough, and chapped lips. In order to prevent that, you are going to need a product you can depend on to stop that! I happen to know just what you need: Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balms.

Travel in Style with Brics’ Timeless Luggage

I’m an admirer of the glamour of early 20th-century travel style: the tailored suits, the pillbox hats, the elegantly styled hair, and of course the chicly coordinated luggage sets (Have you seen “Mad Men”?). That’s why Bric’s Milano is always my number one choice for designer suitcases and bags. Traveling with Bric’s luggage set transports me back to that old world of charm, luxury, and romance.
