What to Do in Myrtle Beach: TIGERS Preserve

What to Do in Myrtle Beach: TIGERS Preserve
By Kristen Putch LG Acquisitions Editor The one thing that always seems to surprise me about beach towns is that there is so much more to do than simply go to the beach. I know that seems naive, but to be honest, when someone says, “I’m going to XYZ Beach,” my first thoughts are: ocean,...

The Un-Spring Break Spring Break: Sayulita, Mexico

The Un-Spring Break Spring Break: Sayulita, Mexico
Not that there’s anything wrong with the bro-tastic trip to wet t-shirt land or any shame in throwing back shots like a freshman trying to pregame in her dorm before an RA walks by. But let’s just say you were in the market for a beach vacation that felt a little less MTV-inspired. May we suggest...

Nicaragua: A Different Kind of Paradise

Nicaragua: A Different Kind of Paradise
By Brittany Gowan Special to the Lost Girls Before my trip to Nicaragua, all that I knew about the country was that it was the focus of the Oliver North hearings that my parents had watched during a family reunion in 1987 when I was just a year old. After college, a good friend and native Nicaraguan...

Pastel Paradise

Pastel Paradise
Any country that boosts a pair of Pink shorts as one of their national symbols, you would consider to either be: 1. Stuck in the 80’s era of bad dress sense and psychedelic drugs 2. Ludicrously drunk and attending a fancy (bad) dress party OR 3. Friendly, laid back, unassuming and keeping up with the...

The Lost Coast: Northern California’s Untamed Waterfront

The Lost Coast: Northern California’s Untamed Waterfront
by Jessica Goldstein LG Adventure Editor Before I went to the Lost Coast in Northern California, I’d been to the beach- at least, I’d been down the shore (pronounced “sho-wuh”). The waterfront as I knew it tasted like funnel cake washed down with beer and sounded like Bon Jovi....

Beauty in the City: Have a Happy Hair Day

Beauty in the City: Have a Happy Hair Day
There’s just something about having a good hair day that makes you feel sexier and more confident. When my hair fell flat even after getting it cut and buying different products to switch it up, I decided to visit Philip Kingsley’s clinic in Manhattan for a consultation. Kingsley, the man...

San Juan, PR: Don’t let the sand flies bite

San Juan, PR: Don’t let the sand flies bite
When LG contributor Molly Fergus went on vacation to San Juan, Puerto Rico this past month, she figured that she might pick up a souvenir or two-but not zillions of them in the form of tiny, itchy bites. You can avoid her scratchy fate by reading on… ********* With some vacation around Easter,...

Lost in Colombia: A Side Trip to Santa Marta

Lost in Colombia: A Side Trip to Santa Marta
By Amanda Pressner LG Executive Editor Even if you’re hard at work on a big project (in my case, a book!) every Lost Girl needs a vacation. This year, I took mine in Cartagena, Colombia and posted about my experiences for the fabulous travel website Jaunted. This week and next, I’ll be sharing...

California Dreaming

California Dreaming
I am in love. You know the feeling, that I’m-so-excited-to-be-alive/ butterflies-in-my-stomach/ nothing-can-get-me-down sensation. However, this high is not for a person, but a place. California’s Central Coast is better than being a single woman landing in Rome if you enjoy breath-taking...

Strawberry Fields

Strawberry Fields
I’ve always wanted to be a California girl. So I decided to go there for a three-week visit to see my sister who has landed on the Central Coast as a traveling nurse. It wasn’t intended to be a vacation-I figured the sunny weather and ocean air would offer inspiration for writing the book....
