Why Travelers Will Love The Seiko Astron GPS Solar Watch

seiko-astron-gps-watch-AstronElite

In collaboration with Seiko I sported the Seiko Astron GPS Solar watch as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #AstronElite, but all opinions are my own.

As a travel freelance writer and blogger, time zone changes can get annoying. I’m often good a changing my watch and phone when readying to take off, but I sometimes do forget and can get worried if I’m catching another flight in a new time zone and I forget about the time change. It happens when there’s just an hour difference, and while it usually gets worked out within 10 minutes or so, there’s really no need for the worrying to occur. Now with the Seiko Astron GPS Solar Watch, wearers don’t ever have to worry about remembering any time zone changes. Trust me, it came in handy for me when I was recently in Vancouver coming from Budapest. Read the rest of this entry

Despite the Google Glass becoming a somewhat fashion week trend, the original futuristic/weird frame isn’t something for everyday style. So Google decided to up the ante and is releasing four “feather-light titanium frames” and two new sunglasses, all available with prescription lenses now. See the styles below:

Adding extra style and personality to a person’s outfit, headphones are a statement accessory and part of our daily lives. From my In The Bag series, I styled my Marley Liberate On-Ear Headphones (which I fell in love with for its mixed-media design of stainless steel, natural wood and the brand’s blend of reclaimed hemp and organic cotton) with a winter-ready outfit with on tones based off its color palette: blue, grey and brown.
