Travel photographer, Dottie Bond, takes us on a 5-day tour of Maine. What do you think of when you think of Maine? I have always thought of lobster rolls and sailboats, coastal fog and thick-bearded lumbermen and the spruce-firs that line the Appalachian Trail as it snakes towards its northern terminus at Katahdin. My visits to the state over the years have confirmed this impression: Maine is a Vacationland par excellence.
So when the opportunity to spend a few days exploring coastal Maine arose, I jumped at it. After attending a wedding in Camden with my friend, Kate, and my dog, Romulus, we headed northeast along the coast to Acadia National Park where we began our 5-day odyssey. We slept at the Seawall Campground on the southwest corner of Mount Desert Island—known as the “quiet side” of Acadia—right down the road from the famous Bass Harbor Lighthouse. There were wild blueberries and vistas of rocky outcrops galore. We stood atop Cadillac Mountain and lunched at Jordan Pond House alongside families beset with squealing kids who cried out for popovers and blueberry crisps. Each day we watched the sun rise and set from a new vantage point along the Atlantic—Bass Harbor, Schooner Head, Thunder Hole. When we were not welcoming the day or biding it farewell, we lazed around Bar Harbor enjoying slow, idle hours sipping coffee while basking under the midday sun. This was summer done right.  ..

T.U.K. Shoes: Where Girly Meets Goth


Who says the girly girl and grunge goth can’t merge styles? We certainly don’t! T.U.K. is combining these two seemingly different styles to create its sought-after footwear collections, which are being rocked by famous celebs, including actress Riley Keough, punk rockers Avril Lavinge and Haley Williams, former Dainty Kane singer Dawn Richards, model Ireland Basinger Baldwin, and Internet personality Audrey Kitching, just to name a few.

Infusing black leathers and dark velvets with cute designs, like hearts, polka dots, kittens and flowers, T.U.K. shoes appeal to both the punk rocker and the prom queen. The brand is best known for its signature creepers— those shoes featuring thick crepe-soles with leather or suede uppers— but also creates eclectic flats, heels and combat boots. And, let’s not forget about its wide variety of creepers, sneakers, dress shoes and boots for men!

The San Diego-based company was founded in 1991. Since then, it’s remained the go-to footwear brand for bands, music fanatics, artists, fashionistas and individuals seeking bold and creative styles.

Why You Should Wear Merino Wool When Working Out


Calling all gym junkies, yogis and outdoor enthusiasts— it’s time to utilize merino wool activewear. Wool has many amazing properties that make it the ideal material for exercise clothing. While you may think wool is just suitable for winter conditions, it’s also appropriate for working out on those hot summer days. The material is soft, comfortable, lightweight, breathable and quick-drying and will keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. Many brands are taking advantage merino wool’s outstanding properties, particularly Ibex— a Vermont-based merino wool company providing high-performance activewear and outdoor apparel. Read on to learn more about the benefits of wearing merino wool while working out.

  • Temperature Control. Wool’s temperature control properties make it ideal for both warm and cold weather conditions. Unlike synthetic fabrics, merino wool responds to changes in body temperature. It absorbs moisture and evaporates it into the air to keep your body comfortable and dry in all conditions. Due to its ability to absorb and evaporate moisture, merino is incredibly breathable and won’t create static electricity or uncomfortably cling to your skin.
  • Extreme Comfort. Merino wool is super soft and flexible. Its tiny fibers allow the material to bend more than other wool fibers, so the material feels soft and gentle against your skin. Additionally, the material is naturally elastic so it will stretch with you, making it perfect for exercise.
  • Odor Resistance. Merino wool has anti-microbial properties that keep your garments fresh and odor free, no matter how much you sweat. While your other workout clothes will start to smell after a single use, wool apparel and accessories won’t stink. This means you can wear them for longer and more times between washes, which is particularly beneficial for backpacking and camping.
  • Easy Care. Wool is stain-resistant, machine-washable and anti-wrinkle, so merino wool apparel is extremely simple to care for. It won’t be easily stained by dirt or grime, and you can simply throw it in the washer and dryer to for an easy clean.
  • Sustainability. Merino wool is a 100% natural and renewable fiber, so it’s good for you and the environment.

These are some of the many reasons to wear wool while working out. To shop for wool clothes online, visit ShoppingBlitz.com.

What You Should Know Before Buying Winter Boots


Are you looking for a new pair of winter boots for your next outing? Whether you’ll be hiking in the backcountry or spending a day on the slopes, your winter boots need to keep you warm, comfortable and protected, without sacrificing your mobility. In order to choose the right pair of winter boots for your activity, you need to understand the basics of their construction. Read on to learn about the anatomy of winter boots, and if you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us at Shopping Blitz.

The Basics of Winter Boot Construction


The upper is the soft area above the midsole and is typically made of materials like genuine leather, rubber, suede or synthetics. Synthetic rubber is naturally 100% waterproof, and many genuine leathers are waterproof as well. The upper is built around a mold called a last which shapes the boot’s materials.


The lining can be made of up one or more fabrics, such as fleece, sheepskin, fur, or synthetic materials, and offers warmth, comfort and support. Many boots from quality brands incorporate heat-seeking technologies into their lining, which are designed to trap and retain warmth, plus keep feet dry. For instance, the Women’s Columbia Minx Mid II Omni-Heat Boots feature Columbia’s famous Omni-Heat reflective lining to retain heat, as well as Omni-Tech to repel water and moisture.

Some boots may offer removable lining, which allows you to customize your degree of warmth. With a removable liner, you can switch out a thermal liner for an all-weather liner to better suit the conditions.


An EVA or polyurethane midsole provides support, durability, warmth, and shock absorption. Thicker midsoles provide more warmth because your foot is farther from the ground.


The outsole is a critical part of your winter boot and makes the boot suitable for wet, muddy and snowy terrains. Many winter boots have rubber outsoles because rubber is naturally waterproof and slip-resistant. Always refer to the thickness and deepness of the outsole when shopping for winter boots. Many boots, such as the Women’s Pajar Snowcap 2 Boots and Men’s Salomon Snowtrip Ts Waterproof Boot, feature spikes or lugs for extra grip and slip-resistance when hiking technical terrains.

Toe Box

The toe box provides a layer of protection for your toes and is typically covered with a layer of insulation for additional warmth and comfort.

Now that you have a better understanding of the anatomy of winter boots, you can choose a boot that satisfies your activity and the weather conditions. To buy winter shoes and clothes online, shop our unrivaled selection of winter gear at ShoppingBlitz.com!
