TweetAs someone with short hair who doesn’t take the time to style it, I’m always looking for something to keep my hair out of my face. I have a number of headbands, but I was excited to check out the Cool Cat Pro, which I had seen advertised in running magazines. It has all the [...]

TweetTrekr makes a travel washcloth that I’ve been using for the past few months, ever since I tested it out before bringing it in my carry on bag to San Francisco. So what makes this travel product worth loving? Firstly, it rolls up nice and tiny like you see below, taking up hardly any room. [...]
Tweet The Pacsafe Slingsafe GIII arrived on my doorstep and I thought it was a mistake. But it was really a Christmas surprise from Brooke, my editor at Her Packing List! I had so much fun checking out the features and took it to work with me every day. There are dozens of great pockets [...]
Tweet Ever since my sister bought me a compression sack for Christmas before my trip to Australia, I have used them on every trip. I’ve written about them on Her Packing List and even ordered myself a second one. But what all of them have been missing is more organization. I still have to dump [...]
Tweet I’m going to let you in on a little secret: solo travel is not just for the young. If someone told me that I had to get all of my solo travels out of the way now and wouldn’t be able to do so when I reached the age of 40 or 50, I [...]
Tweet I’ve long considered Palmer’s Lodge in London to be my all-time favorite hostel, but I may now have to reconsider. After checking it out on my friend the Budget Traveller’s Luxury Hostels project, I knew I had to book my stay at Gallery Hostel for the Travel Bloggers Unite conference in Porto. It turns [...]
Tweet I realized that I’ve never actually reviewed my all-time, favorite hostel, Palmers Lodge in London, England. Every time I go to London, which is becoming much more frequent these days, I stay at the Swiss Cottage location, a former mansion. On my first visit, for New Years in 2008, I stayed with my sister [...]
Tweet Confession: I have a textbook case of overpacking syndrome. I bring everything I could possibly need for any temperature or situation. I’ve finally mastered the art of packing carry-on only on my trip to San Francisco. I wouldn’t say I’m high maintenance, but I don’t like “roughing it” either. So when ExOfficio sent me [...]
Tweet The ExOfficio Women’s Chica Cool Hoody is another one of my favorite products. It was the only jacket I brought to San Francisco, which turned out to be a mistake when I realized how cold it was. But the good thing is that it was easy to layer. The hoody is lightweight and is [...]
Tweet While some gentlemen may squirm while reading this, the ladies should listen up because the Diva Cup is the best travel product I’ve bought in years, possibly ever. My roommate tried to talk me into it years ago but the concept sounded too bizarre for me. But when I read the reviews on other blogs, [...]
