Ahnu Serena Sandal ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 29th, 2015)

Summer has been glorious in Seattle and, as a result, there have been lots of opportunities for me to wear my Ahnu Serena sandals. Adorable, right? But not only are these great to have in Seattle’s warm weather, they are lightweight and small enough to pack away for any warm weather destination. With travel to […]

Icebreaker Cool-Lite Spark Shorts ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 22nd, 2015)

I couldn’t have anticipated at the beginning of this summer that these Icebreaker Cool-Lite Spark Shorts would get so much use in such a short amount of time. Meant for warm weather, I’ve been wearing these often during my runs in Seattle because of our record-breaking temps. (No complaints, I’m loving it!) The material is […]

Olukai Momi Shoes ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 15th, 2015)

I love Hawaii. And I love a lot of things that connect me with the islands. Including Olukai. Enter…the Olukai Momi shoes. Any shoe that I can easily slip on and off gets major points from me. I think if I had it my way (maybe when I move to Hawaii – ha ha!), I […]

Fjallraven Nikka Shorts ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 1st, 2015)

It’s summer in Seattle and I’m confident enough that warm weather is here for awhile that all of my cool weather clothes are put away and my warm weather clothes are all that’s left in my closet and dresser drawers at the moment. That’s a great feeling. Even though our summer has technically just begun, […]

Pearl Izumi N1 Shoes ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (June 10th, 2015)

Now that I’ve really gotten into the habit of running and am training for the Honolulu Marathon, I’m learning a lot about my body, the sport and the gear that works best for me. My recent “aha” moment was realizing that, depending on conditions and the length of my run, my gear needs might change. […]

KEEN City of Palm Sandals ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (May 20th, 2015)

I’m a walker. Anytime I land in a city, the first thing I do is walk and walk and walk. Next to running, it’s the best way to experience the smells and soak up the culture and vibe of a new destination. When I was in New Orleans last week, I spent a lot of […]

This Month Win Give-N-Go Sport Mesh Underwear from ExOfficio

by Beth Whitman (May 1st, 2015)

Congratulations to Kelly K. from Jasper, Alabama, a new subscriber to the Wanderlust and Lipstick Newsletter, for winning this month’s prize! ***** ExOfficio started in Seattle just before I moved here. I feel pretty fortunate about that fact because with them being in my backyard, I’ve been able to get to know them pretty well […]

Craghoppers Pro Lite Jacket ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (April 8th, 2015)

Working from home, I like my light walking around jackets a lot. I wear some kind of jacket around the house most every day (maybe I should consider turning up the heat – HA HA). Unfortunately, many of these are heavy hoodies and they don’t pack well for travel. They’re just too bulky. I came […]

Vibram Bikila EVO Shoes ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (March 25th, 2015)

Depending on whom you listen to, you might think that minimalist or barefoot running (and walking) is completely passe. A fad that’s gone the way of Crocs. But for those of us who got hooked on this style, we remain fanatics and there’s little changing our minds. As you likely know, I really only started […]
