Tevas are great as water shoes, I’ve been wearing them for years. But check out the Teva Flatform Universal. Aren’t they fun? And they are ridiculously comfortable with all that cush under your feet.
I’ve been wearing them almost non-stop for a month and love them. They put a little sass in your step and work with pretty much anything. I’ve worn them with skirts, pants, dresses and shorts. At 5’5, I enjoy the extra height these give me. I’ve worn them walking all day, out to dinner, and to the airport. They are casual, no doubt, but add that little bit of edge and fun that makes you reach for them over other sandals. Find the Teva Flatform Universal HERE.
Need a new passport cover? Check out DynoMighty’s cool graphic covers. The In Flight Mighty Passport Cover is colorful and cheeky and adds great design to boring travel accoutrements. Inside are three slots for credit cards and/or id, and also a bigger compartment for cash or tickets.
The Space Passport Cover is great for kids, and if you are traveling with a family or other people, it’s really smart for everyone to have their own cover to keep things organized and make sure each person has their own passport in hand. Or if you’re an adult keeping track of children’s passports, it’s a handy tool.
DynoMighty is a great option for those looking for vegan and eco friendly gear. They also make wallets out of the same tear and water resistant material. Find the In Flight Cover and lots of other fun DynoMighty Passport Covers HERE.
The Urban Armor Gear iPad Scout is a rugged case for your iPad Air. The Scout uses what they call Frogskin, which is grippy and won’t slip out of your hands. It meets military drop standards and feels rugged enough to withstand adventure travel.
I like the the way the stand. With a lot of cases, the stands don’t really work that well, but with the Scout, you can trust it to stay put and enjoy your inflight movie, or use it for work with a bluetooth keyboard. When you open the smart case, the iPad comes on, when you close it, it shuts off. Note that there is a setting on the iPad to allow that to work, so make sure you have it set accordingly. Find it HERE.
I’ve recently become a big fan of Hydro Flask. I love their Growlers, their True Pint cups, and especially the Hydro Flask Insulated Bottles. You can fill this up with cold water, lemonade, or smoothie (or frozen Margarita) and it will stay cold for hours. Perfect for summer outings, but it works for hot drinks too, so this is a year round necessity for those of us who like to have hydration handy.
I’m not sure why these are so special compared to my other insulated bottles. I think it’s the wide mouth which makes them easy to fill and clean, and that double wall which works like a charm. Also, the colors are fabulous, and if you are in a group, great for color coding. Find them HERE.
Looking for a good shoe that you can wear hiking and kayaking? Check out the Ahnu Tilden V. These have a ton of breathability, so they make a nice summer shoe for active travelers. They’re fully adjustable and light weight. Pack the Tilden V and you won’t have to take along that extra pair of shoes because they are an all-in-one. Dahlia is a fun, energetic purple to help put a little zip in your step.
I need good arch support and shock absorption and when I first put these on, they were so light that I thought they wouldn’t cut it. Wrong. These remind me of the Ahnu Maia in that it is a thinner sole than I’m used to, but the shoes totally pulls off the comfort level. And by the way, those Maias go on all my warm weather trips. The two would make a nice summer combo. Find the Tilden V HERE.
Need a minimalist stand for your iPad Air? Check out the Magnus Air by Ten One Designs. It works with magnets to hold the iPad in place and it looks sleek. Made of aluminum and polycarbonate, it’s slim and light weight at 2 oz, and will easily tuck into your bag. It’s great for business travel, allowing you to use your screen while you type away on a bluetooth keyboard. If you’d rather type directly on the iPad, you can flip the Magnus over and use it under the device.
A black grippy finish helps stabilize the Magnus Air. It kind of disappears so you can focus on the device, which is exactly how it should be. It really showcases how beautiful the iPad is. For a horizontal display, be sure to attach it with the home button facing to the right. Find the Magnus Air HERE.

If you like fun graphics, you’ll love Sili Pint because they have all sorts of festive designs. What a great alternative to plastic cups. Each person can have their own unique cup–they’re great for kids and families too. Find the Sili Pint Tiki Collection HERE.
