Favorite destination: Anywhere with my family

Ideal way to travel: To have an open mind of the city, place or destination you are going to.

Favorite destination(s): Montreal & Mexico City

Ideal way to travel: Like a local.

The Black Sheep

Name: Julie Lamb

Profession: Jewelry Designer

Favorite destination: Italy. Anywhere in Italy.

Ideal way to travel: Business class. I heard first was nice but I haven't gotten there yet. I don't really drive so 'road trip' wasn't going to work here. If someone else is driving I'm good to go!

Biggest dream: Working for myself everyday, supporting myself comfortably from my original design work. Building my fine jewelry line into a lifestyle brand and being able to donate to causes that mean something to me in an impactful way. While flying international business class : )
And I am magically fluent in Italian.

If JLEW named a bag after you what would it be called?
JLAMB, LamBag, fleece lined Lambskin clutch, The Black Sheep, Be Ewe Bag, The Stand Out Satchel, the New Yorker . . . I like doing this, I could go on.
Not for me but The Freelancer would be a great name for one of the big bags. Lots of pockets to sort different projects/folders, don't know what my day will bring bag.

Name: Alex Di Trolio

Profession: Radio Producer/Actress

Favorite destination(s): Italy & NOLA

Ideal way to travel: I don't really have a preference - depends on how far away I'm going. But the type of travel I like to do is laid back with a little sightseeing. I hate having a jam packed schedule of things to do. I like picking one or two things a day that I feel like I need to do and just spend the rest of the day exploring.

Biggest dream: to affect some sort of change & positivity in this world, no matter how small. I want to leave this life feeling like I at least tried to make it better in some way - that I affected people in a good way, no matter how tiny that might be. Even if it was making them smile and feel better for an hour.
