The Truth About Holly Corbett and Eat, Pray, Love

The Truth About Holly Corbett and Eat, Pray, Love
Awhile back I met a freelance writer for Page Six magazine who later asked if she could profile me about my travels. I thought it’d be a short piece, but the magazine’s editor turned it from a profile into an “as told to” feature story complete with a photo shoot. Apparently,...

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...

The Lost Girls Love Adventure Life

The Lost Girls Love Adventure Life
When Jen, Amanda and I made it back home after our yearlong trek around the globe, the place that stuck with us the most wasn’t the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia or the Franz Joseph Glacier in New Zealand (though both are breathtaking), but rather a small farm town in Kenya called Kiminini....

LG Small Town Favorites: Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania
I love running, but it can be hard on your knees. I’ve always wanted to do a triathlon, and figured it’d be a good way to switch up my workouts. Still, swimming in a lake with hundreds of people-not to mention sorting through all the gear you’ll need-can be overwhelming. So I joined...

Lost in Beijing…Continued

Lost in Beijing…Continued
I was lucky enough to have an expat to show me around (my friend Jen who worked with me at a magazine in New York before moving to Beijing for a year). Well, two expats actually. A man named Tak, a Singapore-born and Beijing-based entrepreneur, met up with us after finding me through this blog. From...

Lost in Beijing

Lost in Beijing
Beijing attracted worldwide attention as the home to the 2008 Olympics. Now that all the hype has died down, it’s the perfect time to visit. The city is a mix of modern (in part due to the government’s onslaught of construction to prepare for the influx of tourists during the global games)...
