Lima After Hours

Lima After Hours
The Lost Girls hit the town for our first night out in Lima, Peru. Our quest for our first Pisco sours ended at a trendy restaurant, Scena, in Miraflores (Lima’s most cosmopolitan neighborhood), where we quickly learned how just a view sips of this potent Peruvian libation are enough to turn any...

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...

Don’t Mess with a Lost Girl!
No joke, we’ve heard the warning “Be careful on your trip!” a million times (thanks to worried moms, protective boyfriends and concerned pals). Holly decided to put some minds at ease by signing up for self defense with Matan Gavish (www.DEFitness.com), a personal trainer schooled...

Last Night a T-Shirt Saved My Life

Last Night a T-Shirt Saved My Life
Okay, not to be too melodramatic, but I really have been waking up in cold sweats, panicked about the final “packing of the backpack.” It’s not just that the girls and I have to prepare for weather that ranges from 32 degrees F (Inca Trail Hike) to 90 degrees (Rio), but that my on-the-road...

Hair Dryer Rehab
While tossing a blow dryer into our backpacks was tempting, we realized we had to simplify our hair care routine to lighten our load. This called for expert advice, so The Lost Girls consulted Alain Pinon, master stylist and co-owner of A-K-S salon in New York City, and Kathleen Flynn, author of Beyond...

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...
