Win $1000 in Anatomie Designer Travel Clothing

by Nora Dunn on January 28, 2015

Anatomie-Banner-1000x500 2

I’ve long extolled the virtues of Anatomie designer travel clothing as being my favourite travel clothing, and I’m practically the poster child for them since a good 75% of my travel wardrobe is comprised of Anatomie clothing. Why, you might ask? Because they make clothing that is ideal for travel because it’s light, wrinkle-free, it packs up small, and unlike a lot of “travel clothing” which is more utilitarian than anything else – Anatomie duds look absolutely fabulous. You can dress it up or down, but no matter which way you go, you’re gonna hit the road in high style.

In Florida, Rocking the Shelley top, currently on sale for $75 (while supplies last)…

Zurich: The Monika Ballerina dress (my FAV dress), also on sale for $75 while supplies last…

 

So I’m thrilled to announce that they’re giving away a prize I’m mighty envious of and equally thrilled to extend to you:

You can win a $1,000 gift card plus a personal one-on-one virtual styling session with one of the Anatomie founders!

 

Winning is pretty easy; there are nine of us bloggers on the Anatomie bandwagon for this giveaway. You can gain entries by following any or all of us, for sharing the giveaway on social media, and more. (The more actions you accomplish, the greater your chances of winning).

Lucy and OliLucy and Oli (of Two Backpackateers) left their jobs last year to travel the world. They have been doing so for almost 12 months, and counting! They write about travel, lifestyle, baking and Lucy writes about Beauty. Here’s a week-in-the-life of Lucy and Oli, house-sitting in France!

 

Day 1 — Tuesday

4:00 AM – It’s the night before we fly to France for our first Trusted Housesitters assignment in Saint Matre, and I’m awake, with a killer headache and one heinously sore eyeball. I pop a couple of Nurofen and hope I wake up as fit as a fiddle…….

8:00 AM – I have not woken fit as a fiddle, and am starting to get a bit concerned about my eye. We are staying with Oli’s parents in Cambridge, as it’s nice and close to Stanstead Airport……but not so nice and near to my GP. Eek.

11:00 AM – In lieu of seeing the doctor, we nip to Boots and ask the pharmacist for advice…..five minutes later, and our wallet is £10 lighter. Boo. Off we pop to Wetherspoons for our traditional pre-flight drink!

6:00 PM – Our Ryanair flight lands in Bergerac bang on time so we are treated to the trumpeting congratulatory announcement of their fabulous stats that always drive me crazy; don’t congratulate yourself for flying and landing on time, that’s your job! We head to the smallest baggage reclaim belt ever…Oli gets stuck in with aiding the smooth bag reclaim.

6:10 PM – Johanna, the lady we are house sitting for, is picking us up from the airport, but we have a few minutes to kill so we enjoy a free wine tasting. Bergerac is topping my favourite airport list.

7:00 PM – Home! We meet the pets we are entrusted with, Titou the dog, Puddy the cat and 15 chicks! I start to feel really ropey so head to our room to ‘rest my eyes’……..

Drinking Chicha in Peru

by Nora Dunn on January 19, 2015

You don’t have to go far before finding an opportunity to drink chicha in Peru; on street corners, in people’s homes-turned-establishments, and in markets. And drinking chicha can be quite the cultural experience.
