Just a few weekends ago I had the pleasure of traveling to Healdsburg, CA. It had been several years since I was in California and it honestly felt nice to visit for a weekend. I forgot how much I love Northern California and why I […]
Throughout my travel profession I have gone through my fair share of suitcases. One always seems to last a few around the world travels and then it begins to deteriorate. At first it didn’t both me because I considered each rip or tear to just be another stamp in my passport. In the end though it just became downright frustrating. For awhile now I have been on the hunt for a new suitcase to be my companion for future adventures. Spending long hours on my computer doing research, reading reviews, and comparing prices I stumbled across the company Away. Not going to lie, the first thing that grabbed my attention was the fact that the founders got their start at Warby Parker. I’ve been a long time fan of Warby Parker and can be seen sporting different glasses of theirs around Brooklyn. Looking more into Away though I was loving the sleek design of the suitcases and been debating whether I should make the transition over to a hardshell suitcase. After quite a few months of pondering I decided to pull the trigger.
Now I can’t attest to whether the suitcase is the be all end all due to the fact that this weekend will be my first trip using it but I guarantee I will update this post on my conclusion. I have to say I already love the suitcase though. Any sort of travel is a favorite of mine but my least favorite aspect of traveling is packing. I detest it actually. However, I found I was thoroughly enjoying myself as I packed for my weekend trip to Napa. The different compartments and options are perfect for packing, especially for someone who has over packing tendencies. Review so far is 5 stars, stay tuned for an updated review once I’m back. For the time being you can catch me on my Instagram enjoying the California sun with a glass of red in hand.
It’s a common phrase that absence makes the heart grow fonder, or in some cases gives you perception. I’m sure my absence hasn’t gone unnoticed on here but sometimes taking a step back can be beneficial on all fronts. This past year has been a roller coaster to say the least, with a lot of ups and downs. All in all it has helped give me perspective on what exactly I want to do and accomplish with High Alpine. It’s been an internal struggle because I not only want this to be a creative outlet for myself but I also want to create an open space for all topics of discussion for everyone that visits.
That’s when the inspiration was reborn and the long hours of brainstorming and copious amounts of coffee began. Finally the endless hours of staring at my computer thinking my eyes would never be able to blink again has paid off. From this point forward High Alpine will not only feature the light hearted posts you may have grown used to, but will also feature op-eds about travel, lifestyle and culture. You will find a wide range of topics being discussed and featured on here in hopes of connecting all walks of life and creating a space for enlightened discussions.
Join High Alpine on this adventure to engage with others and achieve a greater understanding of this complex world we all live in.
If there were one item of clothing that describes this summer, it would be this romper. No matter the temperature or occasion I have been sporting this romper. It is by far one of my favorite summer items and will keep wearing it well into the fall. I’m already on the look out for another version of this from Spell Designs. Their rompers are amazing and ridiculously comfortable.
