Links I Love Week 32

I am home in Chicago for the weekend and the weather has been beautiful. I haven’t had a night in all week and I have no complaints. I have met up with friends, dinner out on a terrace and enjoyed long walks and drinks in my neighborhood. I celebrated my friend Marc and Jennifer’s 20th Wedding Anniversary. I wore a similar version to this dress and these shoes. It was a fun occasion to dress up.

I recently had the best sleep I can remember while traveling in Amsterdam and I am convinced it is the pillows. They are a steep price of $250 per pillow. I am on the hunt for something similar but not so expensive. These are half the price and get great reviews. Does anyone have a favorite pillow?

  1. Hi — I just wanted to let you know that I recently purchased the Orange Holiday SIM card via Amazon. We traveled for two weeks in the Basque Country, the Bordeaux area, a couple of days in the Loire Valley, and a final night in Roissy. So, two weeks using a SIM card with 20 GB of data for USD 45. It worked like a champ. Coverage was primarily 4G, put it worked well enough for Google Maps, checking weather and email. Compared to our AT&T coverage at $60 for 1GB data, the Orange card was a no brainer. One item to mention however is that you have to swap out SIM cards and those little guys have a tendency to flip around all over the place. So, I would suggest not swapping cards on the plane. Work on a flat surface, go slow, focus through the jet lag, and tape your old card (which you will need again) to something that you can find in your luggage later. 🙂

    • Duane,

      Great point that the little guys flip everywhere. I tried to switch my SIM in a park in London earlier this year and I lost it. I used my earing to pop out the SIM and I spent 30 minutes searching for both on the ground of the park. I will never do that again. I usually put a little tape inside the card to keep it in place. I am so happy to hear it worked out well for you. I hope you had a great trip!
