If you have ever traveled off the beaten path you know a mystery puddle when you see it. We have to go there for a minute for those that didn’t get our drift….think no rain in days, no running water, but a puddle…Suspicious, though sometimes valid enough it is noxious, legitimate water table drainage, but we’d rather not have anyones spirits literally dampended by human or pet urine. We’d rather not have anyone experience a mystery puddle oozing between your toes, so protect them! Tom’s shoes are great for travel of course because they are reasonable priced, fabulously fun in prints and solids, easy to take on and off at TSA security screenings, as well as during your flight and nearly last because they protect your toes from stinky mystery puddles. We said nearly last, because we saved the best for last, Tom’s shoes are one to one! One to one because for every shoe you purchase from Tom’s an additional pair of shoes is donated to someone in need. So while you are shopping for that perfect little pair of shoes thinking do I get red or black, buy both- because technically the word is a better place when you buy Toms!
Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket
So, when you are at home and it’s raining cats and dogs, it’s ok to roll over and call it a good day to stay home. However, when you pull back the drapes back in Dublin and it’s drizzling (which is likely), you get your happy little rear end outfitted with a good water proof jacket, so like a duck, you are ready to let it roll off! We love Patagonia’s products. They are quality made and have an amazing guarantee, as a matter of fact Jane recently contacted them about a fleece she had that shedded more than her Labrador Retriever and even years after purchasing it, they exchanged it. Voila, a new and improved one appeared in the mailbox. We love this particular Torrentshell waterproof jacket : one because it is light weight and can easily be layered for the seasons, and two because it is on sale from $129 to $89 (at REI) and is available in 4 colors. We dig the green because, well, it is Ireland, but did you know their country color is blue?
