Ooh the art forager and the jab jab jab books seem super cool! Same with the curated beauty set perfect for travel! I have a podcast recommendation — reply all!

ooh thanks, I’ll check out that podcast!

Hi Sher!

I’ve been following your Instagram and blog for a while and find you to be so inspirational! The photos are beautiful! I know you must be super busy, but I’d love to know if my project might be helpful to you at all.

I also love travel and work from my laptop; one thing I find is the stress of being new in town and not knowing the inside scoop of where you can go and get a bit of work down with some decent wifi, sufficient plugs etc.

So, I’ve started up a blog/site which I hope to grow into a bit like a Tripadvisor for the digital nomad community/travellers. Essentially the idea is to review good spots to work from and post about them so that other digital nomads, entrepreneurs, freelancers etc can be in the know when they are looking for somewhere to go and work from their laptop for a few hours. Also, I’d love to encourage other people like yourself to recommend spots that they come across whilst travelling – something I’ve dubbed a “fickle office” (because it is temporary).

Do you think you would benefit from a website like that? And, if so, would you be interested in posting a recommending perhaps of a coffee shop (either on your travels or local to you) which you like to work from?

Really hope to hear from you soon,

Saving this for when we go to Manhattan! :)

DeasyJanuary 30, 2017 - 9:03 pm

This is a great list. Park Savoy Hotel seems very promising! I’m always looking for hotels with great value in Manhattan since I’m more interested in spending money on activities instead!

MollyJanuary 31, 2017 - 8:37 pm

Great places- I didn’t know of any of them! so helpful!!

[…] but that’s beside the point. New York is a different ball game, though. While there are solid hotel options in Manhattan that are more affordable, these options can start getting you a luxury experience (although maybe just one bathrobe) if […]

7 Leaders Insolution Sheet Masks in 7 Days | Beauty Review

  The Best Leaders Masks to Try Now I’m a total sheet mask junkie. They’re like a magical band aid for your face full of skin quenching ingredients like hyaluronic acid, collagen and – I simply can’t get enough. I’ve tried every brand under the sun and was fully intent on continuing my sheet mask […]


Lisa FavreJanuary 9, 2017 - 3:50 pm

I haven’t treated myself to a facial mask in a while. I’m going to browse further on your list and see which ones I’d like to pick up!

Sue @NoFixedAbodeForSueJanuary 9, 2017 - 4:08 pm

I love a good face mask. One of my daughters is hoping to work in the beauty industry and so is always experimenting with new products (on her and me) I had not heard of this brand before, so something new to try, how fun.

DeeJanuary 9, 2017 - 9:36 pm

I honestly never used a mask before, but I have heard some really good reviews about them. I am going to have to try to it a try myself.

MarysaJanuary 9, 2017 - 9:43 pm

I have heard of these recently, but honestly I didn’t know what they were all about. These sound really nice – I like that you mentioned they don’t have a strong scent. I wouldn’t know how to use these, without having read your review. Glad to hear I can find these at Ulta!

censieJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:11 pm

As I get older I find that my skin is getting worse when it comes to break outs. I am wondering if some of these products would help that. I really need to find a new skin regimen to help with the break outs.

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:47 pm

it’s a korean skin care brand and not as well known in the us (yet) but definitely try it out! you and your daughter will love it Sue.

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:48 pm

Ah Dee you have to try one! they are really great quick fixes for dry or dull skin and very very affordable for frequent use :)

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:54 pm

glad you found the review helpful Marysa! let me know if you like them :)

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:56 pm

Hi Censie – for breakouts I would recommend a gentle AHA product to help clear out the dirt and oil that accumulates in our pores. I’m using nip + tucks glycolic pads right now which are extremely gentle and have left my skin breakout free + super glowy.

sheet masks are better for maintaining moisture and glow to the skin. for acne especially in older skin which tends to be drier and less elastic, AHA and BHA products are great. in the ingredients list you want to look for things like lactic acid, glycolic acid, etc.

Jennifer SieglerJanuary 10, 2017 - 1:13 am

This is the first time I heard about this brand and I would want to thank you for your honest review. I agree that the most frustrating thing with masks is that some of them do not “fit” and have lots of air pockets when applied to the face. I read you mentioned this brand is not that way at all. I will have to get these leaders Insolution Masks!

ValerieJanuary 10, 2017 - 9:24 am

I really need to start taking better care of my skin. I could use a good face mask and this one looks like a decent option. I will look into it.

Melissa DixonJanuary 10, 2017 - 12:18 pm

I have never heard of this brand of products before but I would love to check them out more. I am always on the lookout for products that actually do what they say they do. This sounds perfect for me and what I have been looking for.

SherJanuary 10, 2017 - 12:24 pm

So frustrating right? I hope you try them out – let me know what you think of the fit Jennifer :)

FarrahJanuary 11, 2017 - 10:39 am

I am new with all this beauty and skin care, so it’s about time for me to try a different facial mask!

[…] basic sheet masks you can shop on Amazon for about $2 a mask. I like pretty much any by the brands Leaders and My Beauty […]
