5 Products for the Perfect Quarantine Home Gym

While some gyms are now starting to re-open, so many of us have experienced the convenience of working out at home that we may not even go back! Gyms were just permitted to open at 33% last week here in New York City, but I’m not sure that I feel comfortable going back to a shared workout space just yet.

6 Must-Have Items In My Travel Bag

While I’ve always been a bit of a frequent flyer, this semester I have definitely accumulated a lot more miles under my belt. I’ve learned how to be way more of a savvy packer thanks to smaller European airlines and their sometimes ridiculous regulations over what size bags I can bring on-board. Although I’ve lost a face cream or two to security and even had my soft carry-on luggage tossed into checked baggage (ouch), these weekend flights have helped me narrow down my packing to the essentials. While I’ve been in Europe, I’ve carried the same two bags on all …
