Since I’ve discovered that Cruise vacations totally rule and are among the most enjoyable vacations one can take, I’ve also realized the importance of having at least a couple of attractive, well-fitting pieces of swimwear. Because eventually, you are going to get wet, and you want to look good.

Yesterday I attended a fun press preview of Land’s End Clothing’s Spring 2013 line and fell in love with a collection of their new swimsuits in one of my favorite all-season colors: Black.

Black Suit Deep with Mock Skirt

With my bikini-wearing days now behind me, it’s fantastic to find a selection of one-piece suits that not only flatter the figure, but manage to look both classic and fashion forward at the same time. I may want a more forgiving style than a 20 year old, but I am not quite ready to swim in a dress.

Black Suit Assortment with Cover Up

It’s an added bonus that any of these styles are ideal for transitioning from the poolside to the party with the addition of a cute cover-up (such as the one pictured above) or wrap sarong. Expect to see these suits selling in the very affordable $55.00 – $65.00 price range.

Worleygig.Com Reccommends: JetBlue Airlines

Folks who read this blog who also happen to be my Friend on the Facebook know that I just returned from a 12 day vacation extravaganza that included a trip to Disneyworld (super fun), a 7-Day Eastern Caribbean Cruise on the totally rad Carnival Dream (crazy insane fun) and a two-day post-cruise download in beautiful downtown Orlando (very very fun). All of this fun was made possible in part by JetBlue airlines, who flew me from New York’s JFK to Florida’s MCO at an extremely competitive rate. A few other things I enjoyed about JetBlue include no charge for your first checked bag (saves an additional $25 each way, or a total of $50, which paid for my cab ride home from the airport), bigger, more comfortable seats and tasty in-flight snacks. JetBlue is also adding new destinations all the time, so there is a good chance that they fly to a few cool places that you want to visit. If your upcoming vacation plans include flight arrangements, please consider how JetBlue can make your trip easier – and more fun – and visit them at Jet Blue Dot Com.

Aidan Has A Posse – a Benefit Concert featuring Buckcherry and The Toilet Boys

August 10, 2011, New York, NY10th Street Entertainment, Flying Television and Bowery Presents announce AIDAN HAS A POSSE, a special benefit concert featuring a performance by rockers Buckcherry, Toilet Boys and Pisser on Thursday, August 11th. This intimate event is being held at the Music Hall of Williamsburg and will include a silent auction with items such as an 6 day rock n’ roll cruise with performances by Buckcherry, Hellyeah, Hinder and others, a guitar played and autographed by Keith Nelson of Buckcherry, New York Giants tickets, a Samsung Galaxy Tab, unique rock memorabilia and much more.

All of the musicians, artists, producers and venue are joining the “posse” in support of Aidan Seeger, a beautiful 6-year old boy who was recently diagnosed with a rare brain disease called Adrenoleukodystrophy, or ALD. ALD severely affects neurological signals, swiftly and irreversibly destroying nerve cells. While there is no known cure, bone marrow transplants have been known to stop the degenerative process. As Aidan is in dire need of a bone marrow transplant, Be The Match Foundation will be on site to build a bank for bone marrow donors via painless cheek swabbing, a crucial part in the fight against ALD. This posse is ready for a fight!

Buckcherry guitarist Keith Nelson says, “The Seeger family has been friends of ours for many years; it has been devastating to learn about Aidan’s recent diagnosis of ALD. With the family’s blessing we quickly put together an event in Aidan’s back yard, Brooklyn, NY, to raise both awareness and financial support for the upcoming battle Aidan will be facing. We are grateful for the long running friendship of the Seegers and fortunate to be in a position to lend a hand. The initial response has been overwhelming with Bowery Presents, Flying Television, Shepard Fairey, Ewok and many others already jumping on board to help. It will be a night to remember.”

Tickets are on sale on Ticketmaster at This Link. VIP tickets are $150 and include meet and greets with Buckcherry and friends and priority seating. Regular tickets are $25. Net proceeds go to Aidan Seeger’s medical bills.
