IN-VEST-2A few years back I opted for an enhanced New York State license, which allowed me to travel to neighboring countries without a passport. This awesome addition was the envy of many of my friends. It also came with a strange metallic envelope, which I rarely used and then eventually lost. Well it turns out that that annoying little envelope was supposed to protect my ID from RFID (Radio Frequency Identification readers). Well that’s just great. But now there is a solution for me – and all the semi-paranoid techies out there. An RFID Blocking Vest by SCOTTeVEST.

SCOTTeVEST has been developing tech-enabled clothing since 2000, and is well known for their many, many pocketed vests, (over ten million pockets sold!) but this new collection of products are intended to protect customers from people using technology to exploit weaknesses in cell phones, credit cards and passports.

This vest is the company’s number one selling travel vest. It has 26 pockets for all your necessities (passports, documents, water, enhanced ID envelope) and it will protect you valuables from high tech skimmers that can steal your personal information and identity. Obviously (and most importantly) – it looks good. The vest also comes in a variety of colors.

Radio-Frequency Identification security has become a growing concern in our world today because we store so much informational on all of our smart devices – so this vest might be something worth considering.

If RFID is something that concerns you – or you’re just in the mood for a cool vest, make sure to check out the collection here.

the cbd pillow review 2020 1024x1024

We parents have braved a lot over the past couple of years, from upended lifestyles to trying to convince our kids that everything is going to be fine.

Add Some Zen To Your Home With These Japanese Houseware Brands

As the world enters its sixth month of pandemic life, my new favorite hobby has become reflecting on the silver linings of this time. Staying inside and relatively isolated has forced us to become more mindful of how we live, and reflective on how our habits align with our lifestyles. The outcomes have been well documented by this time: After six months or more with nowhere to be, Americans are rediscovering a love for spending time with family, the pleasure of keeping a clean and orderly home, the joy of indulging in favorite hobbies, and the rare sweetness of stillness and solitude.

While we eagerly await the return of “normal life” freedoms, we’re newly aware of how many freedoms we gave up as a culture, in pursuit of … what, exactly? It’s hard to remember now. Looking back, the old “get things done quickly so we can move on to getting more things done” ethic seems like a fever dream. Even as we daydream about returning to life as we knew it, we know deep down that there are things we don’t want to go back to. The big question hovering in our minds is, can we remake normal life with the wisdom we’ve gained during this crazy year?
