Hot Tip: Travel shampoo to change your life

Note: This post contains an affiliate link from which 3 Score & More may be compensated for purchase made through the link. For more information, click here.

It’s not often I so whole-heartedly write about a product: in fact, this is a first for 3 Score & More.  But I’ve just come back from 3, 2-3 week long trips and believe me, I WISH I’d had this tucked among my toiletries… a single-use shampoo that is Sulfate-FREE (a must for those of us with, ahem, color-treated hair), TSA approved, AND easy to pack….

So click on through the image below if you think this is something that needs to go into your suitcase next time….

What is really breaking the mold is that I’ve not personally tried the Squeeze Pod shampoo, so I’m taking the unusual step of endorsing it based on the strong reviews of Amazon customers, thoughtful response to consumer questions from the manufacturer, and the overall strong rating.

And ordering my own set post-haste.  There’s a lot more travel out there….

I’d really like your thoughts – if you’re familiar with this please share your experience – would love to see your comments posted below!

Yours in suds,

Jane

What is the best secret hotel in Uruguay?  Probably this one.

Casa Zinc in La Barra across the small wavy bridge from Uruguay’s famed costal hot spot, Punta del Este.

It’s part of the Tablet Hotel collection, which hints at its exclusive, uber-cool nature.

Casa Zinc is a small hotel, a hipster’s dream; an unassuming collection of six rooms in a quiet residential neighborhood off the main thoroughfare.

Don’t let the trompe d’oeil facade and Casa Zinc’s consciously  rumpled public areas fool you. The illusion masks attention to detail in all creature comforts, wrapping modern conveniences in luxurious, carefully curated bohemian chic with just a whiff of intrigue.

Want to conjure up a mysterious past?  Cafe Zinc is the perfect setting.

See if you don’t agree in the following slideshow or Casa Zinc’s online gallery, here.

Sweden confidential: 3 epic places that will make your heart soar

Sweden confidential: 3 epic places that will make your heart soar

Sweden is one of my favorite destinations.  The southernmost region, Skane, where pastoral and woodsy beauty mixes with a stunning coastline, is a magical place within a very modern country.

On a solo road trip through Skane, I uncovered 3 unforgettable places, each deserving of its own narrative to share the soulful experiences of the seaside, forest, and yes, sophisticated dining. 

Following is a summary of that trip which, at every turn, made my heart soar. The common thread is the laid-back warmth of the Swedish culture which both recognizes and celebrates the natural beauty and bounty found in this corner of the world.  Links to the previously published posts are noted below.

A recent ski weekend honored 2 birthdays,  but it could be anything/activity wherein all shared a new adventure and the sense of discovery.

Here are some tips on making an intergenerational weekend – of any kind – a success.
