In general, I’m a healthy eater. I avoid pretty much anything that would be considered bad for you, including soda, potato chips, and fried foods. However, I’m not above trying anything that is well-known to a particular country, region, or city. So when Rob and I were in Montreal not too long ago, we had to give one of the local “delicacies” a try. Of course, I’m talking about poutine—french fries covered in gravy and topped with cheese.
Depending on your viewpoint, poutine could be considered either divine or disgusting. As for me, well, I’m glad I can say that I tried it, but I’m not sure it’s something I’ll be including regularly in my diet. We actually sampled the “classic” version as well as one with smoked meats. Definitely What about you? Have you ever had poutine?

Let’s say you were in the market for your first suit and you took my advice and started with a blue one and decided to multiply its possibilities by adding a waistcoat. I’ve already provided some inspiration on how to wear it as a two piece (as a power business look as well as more casually), three piece, waistcoat and pants together, and jacket alone. But what about wearing the waistcoat as a separate? Here’s one way to do it.

Sometimes the best intentions or ideas just don’t work out they way they were supposed to. I know this isn’t the most timely post given that spring is currently in full swing—minus the overnight freeze a few nights ago, of course. However, as you’ll read, it underscores the importance of being flexible, of having the ability and willingness to adapt to a changing situation, and of packing versatile when traveling.

How many times have you been out and had your phone die? Or how many times have you been that person jonesing for an outlet, in desperate need of an electricity fix? I know I’ve been there. While there are definitely worse things in the world than having your phone run out of juice, it can be terribly inconvenient, especially if you’re using your phone as a GPS. Back in Venice, Rob turned me on to this little external battery from mophie and I can’t count the number of times it’s saved my life. Well, not literally, but you know what I mean. Do you have one? And, please, share your worst phone dying stories in the comments.
