Well, Holly did end up getting her bag back…about an hour before our next flight to Cuzco departed. Phew! Here’s a clip documenting the Lost Bag scenario. Note the famous last words at the beginning of the video-Holly swearing that she won’t let her bags out of her sight. Poor thing…not...

Got Baggage? The Lost Girls Don’t

Got Baggage? The Lost Girls Don’t
We have arrived! Unfortunately, not all of our bags have. Holly flew from NYC to meet Amanda and Jen in Miami yesterday for the 5 1/2 flight to Lima, Peru. We spent our first night at the airport trying to track down Holly’s missing luggage, which also happened to contain the very last in a series...

The Big Apple Gets a Little Love

We’re practically breaking out in hives we’re so itchy to get the f*#$&^ out of town already (have we been planning this trip for years, or what?) but we’re saving a little nostalgia for our favorite city on the planet. Here are the places we’ve loved since our “freshman...

Goodbye Gotham!

Goodbye Gotham!
It’s pictures like this one that consistently earned me the esteemed title of “Tool of the Week” almost every single week in college (Amanda dutifully posted the photographic evidence on her dry erase board), but after five years as a Manhattanite, I was confident enough to masquerade...

SpaHa: Moving Up to the East Side

SpaHa: Moving Up to the East Side
Just six weeks to go between now and D-for-departure day, but we’re already itching to explore parts of the planet that haven’t been covered in Daily Candy and every glossy travel magazine. Surprisingly enough, we discovered such a discretely cool and under-hyped spot right in our very own...

Taking the Leap

Taking the Leap
The Lost Girls took a big step towards hitting the road: We quit our jobs. What was my experience leaving my gig as an editor at a national women’s magazine, you ask? Well, it was scary (I’ll sure miss those steady paychecks), sad (call me lucky, but I love my boss and actually look forward...

Have you seen Davis?

Have you seen Davis?
Today, New York City loses more than a fraction of its coolness-and one of its most fabulous hipsters-as good friend and Honorary Lost Girl Stephanie Davis leaves Gotham to take a new job in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. True, she did make a pretty spectacular leap from editorial assistant (at...

Show me pouty…

Show me pouty…
The biting, frigid wind couldn’t stop The Lost Girls today as we zoomed (along with Grand Master Patrick, our fabulous photog) to the top of the Library Hotel on Madison Avenue. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect for taking headshots; even on a mostly cloudy February day, we still...
