You’ve probably seen Birdies Slippers all over your Instagram feed recently, doing a hard push for the holiday season. The tagline of “the stylish flat that’s secretly a slipper” sums it up beautifully. These shoes were made for both lounging at home and hitting the town, and their versatility is what makes them stand apart from the competition.

 

The Birdies team created a new type of slipper that combines the support of a sneaker with the vibant styles of a designer flat. The memory foam and satin quilting feels luxurious under the soles of your feet and the expressive embellishments, like pom poms, give a fun and festive feel.

 

There are two types of slippers: Smoking Slippers and Slides. The Smoking Slippers are similar to flats, with fabric that circles the heel, and statement fabrics like black leopard and camo. The Slides are their own category of awesome, with tassels and bows front and center over saffron and fuschia fabrics. Some of the styles have white faux fur footbeds while some have satin.

 

Birdies collaborated with renowned San Francisco interior designer Ken Fulk to create a collection of four speciality slippers. These are truly the stars of the show, and feature beautiful bright fabrics accompanied by a design over the toes of either a regal leopard, elegant peacock, carousel horse or a loving golden retriever.

 

Each of the slippers comes with free shipping and free returns and range $120–165.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Renting a car will give you the freedom to explore Northern Ireland, small enough to be accessible even for those on shorter trips.
