Hard to believe it girls but back in the day, driving was considered a glamorous pastime! It was as much about style and how you looked as it was about actual transportation. In today’s world, we spend so much time behind the wheel that our cars have pretty much evolved into mobile living rooms!
The mom of three school-aged children, you’ll often spot SuthinGirl toodling around town in her car. I chat with friends, listen to music, nibble on snacks, sometimes read and relax, and often get my best thinking done…all while sitting inside my pretty silver SUV!
I’m forever on the lookout for new ways to elevate my driving experience into something that feels…dare I say…self indulgent! Well ladies, better buckle up ’cause I have got some game changers for you!
Ready? Okay, first things first. I need you to remove everything from your car. Every single thing. Next, treat yourself to a car wash and detail. Boring, I know! Why don’t you hang out here at SuthinGirl.com and I’ll keep you company while you wait?
All set? Great! Now, you’re ready to fill your shiny, clean car with items that are both beautiful and functional. In true SuthinGirl fashion, I’ve put together a little shopping list just for you!
Love the pattern on the cord and since it’s not plastic it won’t wear out as quickly living in your hot car.
Gives your smartphone up to three full charges and can charge two devices simultaneously. Lightweight & compact.

“Irresistible and flamboyant, socialite Mrs. T. Reed Vreeland began her now legendary twenty-five-year tenure at Harper’s Bazaar writing a column of audacious advice: extravagant ideas that helped redefine American women and twentieth-century fashion. Her commentary created a fashion frenzy when it began appearing in Harper’s Bazaar in 1936. Her ideas were simultaneously stylish and outrageous, and have as much appeal today as they did decades ago.” Amazon.com
