International Rebound

After traveling for ten days, it was nice to get back into the swing of things at home. Well...nice is a relative term. Excruciating welcome back workout? Check. Insane Inbox? Check. Weird jetlag that had me wide awake at 2:00am, but exhausted at 6:00pm? CHECK. So it was a relief to meet up with my blogger friends at last night's Zoora launch party, where they could fill me in on everything exciting in town. From Zoora itself (Direct access to designers? Yes, please.) to the Blog Better Boston conference, to Emily Muller's show tonight at Style Week Providence, there's a lot going on in Boston Fashion! I even found myself crushing on a trend that had previously left me lukewarm: orange lipstick (see Sami and Amanda rock the it color here). I guess smiling and happy friends are the best cure for post-vacation blues!

How do you ease back in after traveling? Have any beat-the-jet-lag tips?
