I’m Jennifer, a road warrior from Fort Worth Texas. Although I spend over 200 days a year on the road and absolutely LOVE to travel, I’m also passionate about restoring my 1924 Craftsman bungalow, baking, and devoting time to my volunteer work. Jetsetter’s Homestead is my daily chronicle of travel-life balance—from surviving chain hotel rooms, to planning how to use all those frequent flyer miles, to just whipping up a quick meal when I’m settled at home.
Next Issue is my “must have” app for life on the go. I can find a recipe for dinner while I’m still on my flight, gather decorating ideas from my hotel bed, or keep up with the latest feature articles from the comfort of my sofa. Best of all, I never have to worry about lugging several magazines in my bag or blowing my budget by stocking up at the newsstand during a flight delay. With Next Issue, I travel light and have a range of titles to choose from…so I’m covered no matter what my mood may be.
Here are a few of my recent finds for all areas of my life—whether traveling, at home, or that grey area in-between.
