Keep Your Head Happy

Traveling often makes me wish that some nifty things were invented just to make things easier. Like Hermione's 'bottomless' handbag that could hold books, camping supplies, and even a tent! Or Perkin's tent that looks cramped from the outside but is as lavish and roomy as a mansion inside.

What about a small piece of cloth that transforms into a bandana, tube top, skirt, dust mask, eye shade and scarf in just a few seconds? Why hasn't anyone thought of that?

Wait... they have? No way!

Introducing HeadWare:

It's a handy all-purpose, stretchable, breathable and tubular yet seamless accessory that can be used not just for travel but for many different activities like water sports or working out. It fits as small as a hanky and yet it can keep your head cool on hot days and protect it from the elements.

But the Sole Sisters think they can make any backpacker's uniform look chic and fabulous!

HeadWare can be worn as a scarf, headband, hairband, wristband, dustmask, balaclava, scrunchie, pirate cap, beanie, classic bandana, tube top and even a skirt! And it's up to you to find a new use for it. It can even be customized!

This is a product that I've always wanted because I have long curly hair and not enough rubber bands to tie it with.

It would definitely come in handy for those long, dusty chicken bus rides as a face mask. I'll even use it as an eye mask when I want to fall asleep on long trips.

Chichi would surely appreciate the 2 in 1 addition to her backpacker outfit: a skirt and a tube top! Plus a scarf and a bandana to make her look like the chic packer that she is.

When I dropped by R.O.X. a few weeks back, I was delighted to find that they sold the HeadWare and just for the price of a frapuccino! We couldn't help ourselves from checking out the colorful designs and buying not just for ourselves but for our friends as well.

What about you? Wouldn't you want your head to stay happy too?

Happy with her new purchase,

Lois and Chichi are friends, cosmically aligned, unique in their own separate ways and united by the same passion for travel. Both of them, at some point in their lives, have had to jump in feet first, take risks and see where their itchy soles take them.
