Why I Recommend Stronger...

"We have always been fascinated by strong women. Women are changing the world by following their hearts, living their dreams.” Mission at Stronger

What makes you feel strong? For me, travel.

Moving around the world independently has always given me life. Exploring new places, tasting new foods, occasionally getting lost on the subway - all these things have built (and continue to build) me into the woman I am today.

I love finding companies to suggest to you guys that I know you can trust and love, and will make you happier explorers.

That’s why I’m so excited to share the Swedish company Stronger with you. A company that lifts up womxn and has some perfect travel pieces for you to get your hands on. Every time I gear up for a long haul flight, long car drive, beautiful hike, I can rely on this company to give me lasting, comfortable, breathable clothes to travel in.

4. Baan Siam, DC Restaurant

Why I Recommend Baan Siam...

We visited this new restaurant in DC a few weekends ago and loved it!

They did such a wonderful job of keeping us feeling safe during COVID as we enjoyed our meal and drinks outside.

A bit about Baan Siam...

"Formerly known as Baan Thai, Baan Siam opened on the corner of 4th and I Streets NW in 2020.  After a fantastic run on 14th Street, Chef Jeeraporn ''P' Boom" Poksupthong and her team decided that time had come to upgrade to a bigger space with a better kitchen. Chef P' Boom grew up in Thailand, learning to cook from her mother and grandmother. In her early 20s she started cooking professionally as the managing Chef in several five-star hotels in Bangkok and Pattaya. She immigrated to the US in 2006. ​Not your typical menu, we offer harder-to-find Thai dishes. This is the food experience you stumbled upon in Thailand and continue to crave for upon your return to the U.S."
