Sometimes you’ve just got to have it. So here are a few more must have travel necessities to enhance your travel sojourns. (To start at Part 1 click here.)
Stick “Em Up, Podner!”
Speaking of heat, I love this next must have – the Hot Iron Holster. Designed to hold all of your heat-related hair styling tools —curling iron, flat iron, hot comb, and the like—the Hot Iron Holster clings to any smooth surface, without suction cups or adhesives. I agree with the company that it “makes a perfect gift for women everywhere,” because it frees up precious bathroom counter and dresser space, especially when you have to wait for your appliance to cool before putting it away. But the kicker is that it is made of a heat resistant silicone that absorbs temps up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and is totally portable. Hot Iron Holster comes in black, purple, white and my choice- hot pink! www.hotironholster.com
Does that say Savory or Sausage?
Restaurant owners and managers take note! As much as we love to dine out, and as beautiful and descriptive as your menus can be, many of us simply can’t read all of the small print. And if we forget our own reading glasses, well, we just might order something we really don’t want, or take a lot more time asking the wait staff to describe what everything says.
But take heart, there is an easy way to be sure all of your customers can read all the hard work you put into each menu item with FoodieSpecs. According to the company “Statistics show over 65 million people need reading glasses, especially in lower lighting, and they cover the whole age range of any restaurant customer base. … Make your customers happy by offering them a pair of sanitary, individually wrapped reading glasses. … It is fast becoming a service people expect. … Goodwill brings repeat customers – bigger orders, and bigger tips!” FoodieSpecs are just $19.99 for 20 pairs plus a window sticker for the establishment and free shipping.
I tried out a pair, and to be honest, they work better than the convenience store variety I keep at my bedside and in my purse. And, I look fashionable wearing them! 800.915.2160, www.foodiespecs.com
It’s all Good in the ‘Hood
One of the downsides to rainy or cold weather is what it does to your hair the second you walk out the door, after spending so much time to get your hair looking the way you want it. And if you opt for a hat, it may prevent the frizz but still flatten all the curls. And, then there’s the attempt to still look stylish and warm at the same time!
Well colder weather shouldn’t compromise style. So here’s a solution: Coiffie, “a weather-defying fashion hood created for women who are tired of hat hair.” Made of a lightweight construction with a special water repellent to protect you from rain and snow, the Coiffie minimizes hat hair with a silky lining and roomy adjustable hood that folds back to create a custom fit. It can also be flipped back to wear like a scarf. My black exterior with animal print interior really looks great and folds up very neatly to fit in my coat pocket or purse. One size fits all and they come in a variety of colors. 877.592.2622, www.coiffie.com
