Martha’s luggage tags

Okay, so on my list of favorite brands (besides Peg Perego, BRITAX, Bugaboo) is Martha Stewart. I love the clean crisp style of ‘everything’ she does.

She sent me an email today (okay it was probably some auto-responder thing) about making your own customized luggage tags. This made me think it would be great to do this with the kids. http://www.marthastewart.com/article/luggage-tags?xsc=eml_msl_2009_02_26

When we were at the Maui Ocean Center they gave the kids each their favorite animal shape on a luggage tag. Disney is next on our list- Mickey and Minnie themes?

My parents just left for Barbados the other day and I drove them to the airport. I was surprised to see my dad with brand new very ‘colorful’ luggage. When I questioned why he had selected such a ‘loud’ pattern he said it was to better identify it on the luggage carousel. If only I had received this email from Martha sooner…I could have saved my Mom’s beautiful Diane Von Furstenberg luggage from being seen next to it. A customized luggage tag is so much chic-er!

Maui’s Ocean Center

On the list of ‘touristy must sees’ in Hawaii was the Maui Ocean Center. I have a real love/hate relationship with the creatures in the ocean. Although I think they are beautiful and majestic, I am also really nervous about meeting them in the wild…like while I am swimming! The ocean center was a great way to see these creatures close up!

I was impressed with their assortment of custom “Maui Ocean Center” stroller rentals (might just be a COMBI stroller with the Center’s logo embroidered on the hood). These strollers looked modern, comfortable and safe- a great way to see ‘the ocean’!
