TUMI Luggage: The Very Best For Your Travel Needs...


TUMI luggage is our favorite line of luggage. They have dozens of wonderful pieces and TUMI makes sure every piece they send out is put through rigorous testing so that you can be assured you are getting the best product out there. Founded in 1975, TUMI takes its name from a Peruvian icon known to its founder from his Peace Corps days in South America. During the 1980's, TUMI's innovative introduction of soft, ultra-functional, black-on-black ballistic nylon travel bags catapulted the company to its current leadership position. Product quality and selection are key attributes that have made TUMI the leading international business, accessory and travel lifestyle brand. Simply put, there is no other product made like TUMI. This is what they call the TUMI Difference. It is how they approach every aspect and detail of product design. They regard each component—from the smallest, case-hardened solid steel machine screw to their exclusive, virtually abrasion-proof FXT Ballistic Nylon fabric— of each item as if it were the most important.

Two Blind Brothers: Clothing For A Cause (We Love Everything About This Company)...

At a young age, Bradford and Bryan Manning were both diagnosed with an eye disease that causes blindness over time. This condition has inspired a special vigilance for details, a passion that carries over into the construction of their clothing line. They are both graduates of the University of Virginia and currently live in NYC. Bradford and Bryan get down to the details. At launch, they spent six months sitting in coffee shops and going back and forth on how to source the best fabrics, the perfect factory partners and even the right buttons. Their diligence is evident in the well-considered clothing collections now available to all.

This company is both a social enterprise and a charity project. Legally, however, they are set up as an LLC, but they may change our corporate structure down the road. They donate 100% of profits to charitable foundations, programs, and researchers focused on their mission.

The profits go towards research programs that are developing therapies for retinal eye disease cures. They select the beneficiaries through their own network and other trusted organizations. Bradford Manning is a director on the board of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, an organization they work very closely with.

Quaint Newport Rhode Island: Splendor At The Sea...

Newport is one of our favorite places... such a fabulous place visit, whether it’s just for family fun or for corporate meetings. There is so much to do, and you can see everything in just a few days. Start off with a calming, scenic sailboat ride on the Narragansett Bay (perfect for an off-site excursion at a corporate event). Take a hike on the Cliff Walk. Tour the glorious mansions. Have an incredible seafood meal. Shop at adorable boutiques. It’s all there. Whether you're looking for waterfront accommodations, a great meal, lively nightlife, a unique shopping experience or just somewhere to dock your boat, this is the place. We absolutely love it.

In ice caves and volcanoes in Iceland, in the stunning hills of Tuscany, the streets and ruins of Rome, the deserts of Abu Dhabi, pyramids of Egypt, rainforests and outback of Australia, and spectacular scenery in Greece, just to mention a few. The pictures were above and beyond our expectations. We couldn't believe how spectacular they came out.

The camera has four dials: two on the top of the camera, a dedicated exposure compensation dial and a fourth dial encircling the four-way controller on the back of the camera. This offers users more hands-on control of their shooting capabilities. With its 24.2 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor it captures sharp, high-resolution images in even the lowest light settings. The M5's 3.2" 1.62M-dot tilt LCD monitor offers versatility so that you can accurately get the angle you're looking for.

If you want an almost 100% guarantee of sunshine (and who doesn't), Aruba is the place for you. This small, tropical island will envelop you in brilliant sunshine and caressing heat all year round. It does rain, but not very often or for very long. Even with its average 82-degree temperature, the winds are predictable and constant, blowing through as if they were sent just to keep you cool and comfortable. In the summer months, the water is so calm that you can float on your raft and barely move around. This also makes it perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling, since there is very little rain to affect the visibility. In the winter months, when the winds are strongest, sailing and windsurfing are perfect water sports to partake in. Most of the rain comes October-December but even then you will still get plenty of sun.

ACE Work Boots And Shoes: Who Says Work Shoes Shouldn't Be Comfortable and Stylish!

Uncomfortable. Ugly. Heavy. Those are the words that normally come to mind when you think of work boots and shoes. But ACE industrial boots and shoes are not ordinary.

That is no longer the case because of Shoes For Crews... specifically ACE industrial boots and shoes. These work boots and shoes push the boundaries of work footwear by incorporating technologies and materials that specifically address not only your fundamental safety, but also your job performance and comfort. What makes ACE different are the tread patterns they've designed. If you're in a slippery or wet environment all day, they have outsoles built just for you. If you move from wet to dry surfaces and need protection from slips but also a boot that can resist tough surfaces, they have that too. Purpose-built for people who work in wet and slippery conditions, and for those who transition across multi-environment surfaces, ACE holds up to the toughest conditions to get you home safe.

They've got you, and your feet, covered no matter what!

Their proprietary Shoes For Crews outsoles have been bringing hard working people home safe since 1984. Combined with exclusive ACE technologies, you won't find a footwear brand working harder to keep you safe at work. And because they own their outsole factory, they control every element of the formula and every step of the manufacturing process. They don't outsource your safety -- they own it.

Beaver Creek, Colorado: Paradise In Snow...

We have always spent winter vacations (skiing, snowboarding, tubing) on the East Coast. Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. They were all fabulous in their own ways. We kept hearing about Colorado and how incredible the skiing was there. Deciding where to spend your cherished winter vacation week each year is an important decision so, after doing lots of research and asking lots of questions, the Beaver Creek seemed to hit the nail on the head for our taste. Nothing prepared us for the stunning and mindblowing scenery that we were about to embark on. From the drive out of Denver through spectacular mountains to our destination, Beaver Creek, our eyes never left the windows because there was always something beautiful to look at. It was everything we had hoped it would be and so much more. It's going to be pretty difficult to go back to the tiny ski resorts and short runs on the East Coast, that's for sure!

Iceland: The Spectacular Land Of Fire And Ice...


After returning from my trip to Iceland, and talking to people about it, the first thing I am usually asked is “I've heard nothing but great things, and I have always wanted to go. Should I?” My response is always, "I would recommend this country to anyone and everyone. It was the most naturally-beautiful location I have ever been to." The best way to describe it is “other-worldly." From the landscapes that change every 30 minutes as you are driving, to the gorgeous, smaller towns, to the black sand beaches, glaciers, ice caves, volcanoes, lava tubes, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic mountains, you know you are somewhere pretty special. Pair it with the fact that the people of Iceland are the most authentically wholesome people I have been around, and you have what is perfection.

CityPASS: A Fun, Simple, Cost-Effective Option To See The Best Attractions In Your Favorite Cities...


Chicago is one of our favorite cities. It always feels like a home away from home, and you always leave wanting more but you are satisfied at the same time. There is literally something for everyone. You can visit fabulous restaurants, stay at gorgeous hotels, enjoy world-class museums or their fabulous aquarium, be entertained by spectacular animals at the Lincoln Park Zoo, go to a basketball, football or baseball game, do some intense shopping, and go to fantastic shows at the theater.

There's something for every taste, and budget! Make sure Chicago is on your list of places to visit this year!

CityPASS.

If you were going to purchase only one attraction package, this is the one to get. This is the very essence of why they do what they do.

When Mike Gallagher and Mike Morey started CityPASS in 1997, they knew they didn’t want to offer just another discounted attraction ticket—they wanted to offer more. They wanted to create a product that would not only save money, but also save time, while offering a rich, memorable experience at several attractions, not just one. And out of this partnership between two guys who’d spent much of their respective careers working at, with, or around attractions, CityPASS was born.

To help create the experience they envisioned, they hand-picked the very best attractions in the very best cities across North America, with a savings of up to half off the price of separate admission. They purposely designed CityPASS to include a limited number of the most popular attractions, assuring a great experience that makes the most of every minute, without a ton of research needed.

At CityPASS, they think your time at the attraction—whether it’s an aquarium, observatory, theme park or museum—allows you to get connected to the people you’re traveling with, as well as to history or art or nature. By design, CityPASS gives you ample time—9 days—to enjoy a destination, eliminating the need to rush frantically from attraction to attraction to get your money’s worth.

Designed for the FIT, CityPASS ticket booklets contain prepaid, discounted admission — up to 50% off regular combined prices — to the most popular attractions in 12 North American destinations: New York City, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Toronto and Southern California. CityPASS saves time allowing booklet holders to skip most main-entrance ticket lines. Plus, CityPASS booklets are valid for 9 consecutive days beginning with the first day of use.

They really do want you to “leave with more than you came with”—whether that’s more money to spend on other parts of your vacation (or to save), more time to spend with the people you’re traveling with (or yourself), an enriched vacation experience, or some combination of all of those things. The concept remains as vital and relevant today as it did back then, as they recognize the increasing value that experiences bring to all of our lives.

Twenty years later and still family-owned and operated, CityPASS now has 12 cities and 78 attractions, has sold 17 million CityPASS ticket books, and has a customer recommendation rating of 98%. “Leave with more than you came with” is firmly entrenched in the minds of the now 45 amazing staff that work for the company, headquartered in the small mountain town of Victor, Idaho, on the west slope of the Teton Mountains.

Chicago's City Pass.

See Chicago's top attractions, handpicked and packaged together at a significant savings. Adult tickets are $99.75, Children are $84.75. Skip the ticket line and head straight to the fun with CityPASS. Experience the best of Chicago with CityPASS. You’ll get VIP admission to the most iconic attractions in the city, hand-picked and packaged into one convenient ticket booklet at a big savings.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: The Best Eyebrow and Contour Kits Available!

Global cosmetics brand Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded in 1997 by Romanian-born beauty entrepreneur Anastasia Soare. Rooted in the science of sacred geometry, the company formulates, manufactures, and markets prestige cosmetics for a passionately informed “prosumer” audience. Dubbed the “people’s make-up brand,” ABH has cultivated an industry-unique relationship with its core customer, focused on product education and responsiveness in delivering the “ultimate polished look” for which the brand is known.

ABH Founder and CEO Anastasia Soare was first to introduce “brow-shaping” to salons in the US based on her patented “Golden Ratio” method. She is widely credited for fueling the multimillion-dollar business that now surrounds the category. Popularized through Soare’s customer relationships with many of the world’s most recognizable faces—Oprah, Naomi Campbell, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, and Penelope Cruz, to name a few—the “brow revolution” she ignited has become a landmark contribution to beauty history.

ABH’s trailblazing legacy continues with expansion beyond brow products and services. In 2014, the company broke from tradition to debut its new category of professional make-up direct-to-consumer in a “promote to inspire” social media campaign, cultivating a staggeringly successful relationship with influencers in the digital sphere. ABH has since received industry-wide recognition for digital innovation and numerous accolades for cutting-edge product trends such as the category first Contour Palette and cult classic Liquid Lipstick.

ABH cosmetics are available at anastasiabeverlyhills.com, Sephora, Macy’s, ULTA, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, and select retailers in over 25 countries including Saudi Arabia, Australia, Sweden, Romania and France. ABH is committed to the highest standards in product testing, formulation, new product development, and meeting the demands of its uniquely engaged customer.
