Video: Fashionable + Practical Women's Travel Vest

When you travel, you don't want to be a target, whether labelled as a tourist or as someone carrying valuables. But being savvy and practical shouldn't mean giving up being stylish and fashionable.

Michael-Ann Rowe, an Emmy award winning journalist and TV personality, demonstrates why she loves this vest in this video that you can view here.

My Upcoming Travel Product Launch Party in New York City

I'm so excited to be holding my product launch party on Saturday, May 14th at the best poké restaurant -- it's Hawaiian-style raw fish salad -- in New York City.

I'll be selling all six of my products: any-occasion photo greeting cards, Doc-in-a-Bag (unique first-aid kit organizer), AngryJ plush doll + t-shirts, and the first two items in my clothing and accessories collection for travelers: a stylish multi-pocket vest for women, and a unisex 7-in-1 micro travel bag.

And 10% of net profits from all my products, goes to She’s the First, a non-profit that sponsors girls’ education (on the primary and secondary school level) in 11 low-income countries all around the world, including Nepal, Guatemala and Sierra Leone.

If you're in NYC, I'd love to see you. Otherwise, you can purchase all my products online

Curiously, most visitors  never take the ferry to pristine Middle and North Caicos, just 30 minutes away. This short YouTube video slideshow provides a window into my travels.
