• Save Money When Traveling: Pack These 5 Items

    Traveling is expensive, that’s no secret. From booking flights to hotels, cheap is never really a word we would use to describe traveling.  When you can lighten the financial load, that’s always a plus.  I often find it helpful if I pack items that you might typically buy when you’re traveling. Most of these items will often cost you more if you buy them at the airport or once you’ve reached your destination. If you take a moment to check these items off your list you will be saving yourself time and money. (something we all need a little bit more of) 1. Reading Material  Whether it’s a book or…

  • Losing Cash In Costa Rica: Day 1

Arrival Arriving to Tbex actually went off with out a hitch! Being that Denver is such a big hub, it made for flying into very easily…

  • ‘Twas The Night Before Tbex

    ‘Twas The Night Before Tbex ‘Twas the night before Tbex when all through the states, Not a creature was stirring, not even an Aussie mate, The clothes were all packed and the luggage was near, In the hopes that Colorado soon would be here. The bloggers were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of hot tub parties danced in their heads.

The day is here, it was…

  • Tips On Packing Shoes

    I pride myself on being a light packer…when it comes to clothes. No matter how much I’ve been able to whittle down the number of dresses and tank tops I throw into my suitcase, there’s one thing that is a constant struggle for me when it comes to packing light: Shoes. All Fashionista’s know that shoes can make or break an outfit (or a day walking around a city) and half the time I used to feel like my suitcase or backpack was half full of just shoes.
