It’s December 1st!

Today marks the last first day of the last month of the year! Crazy how fast 2017 seemed to fly by. But it’s certainly not over yet…we still have multiple holidays, festivities, and (for all the college students reading this) final exams to experience (though my preference is to quickly get through the latter)!

To everyone packing up their suitcases and going to visit family and friends, and to those setting out on a solo adventure, I wish you the best and happiest of adventures this holiday season!

Earlier this morning I read a piece from Condé Nast on The Best Places to Spend Christmas that I wanted to share. As one of my favorite holidays, I loved seeing how these cities celebrate the season.

I’m also preparing for travels this Christmas season, though I was a little surprised the city I’m going to isn’t listed…but you’ll find out where I’m heading soon! 🙂

Enjoy the rest of December!

Travel Inspiration : Women Who Made the Nomadic Lifestyle Work

Having a nomadic work lifestyle seems to be growing in popularity every day. Just scroll through your Instagram and you’ll find influencers, writers, and other creatives updating their social media accounts, blogs, or business websites through wifi at a cafe in Bali, Mumbai, or Dubrovnik.

Though it seems challenging, and arguably takes some hard work and spotty wifi to maintain, a nomadic work lifestyle is completely possible. Take it from these women who made it work and share what life is like on the road… Continue reading “Travel Inspiration : Women Who Made the Nomadic Lifestyle Work”

I wasn’t going to share this: #metoo

I wasn’t planning on writing this post. I thought about it, especially in this social media-obsessed world where sharing every one of your life’s details is normal, if not encouraged. Maybe I should share what happened. Maybe it would help others.

But I kept going back and forth in my mind.

Maybe it wasn’t sexual assault. Others have gone through worse. Maybe I’m overreacting. It’s over, so why not just move on.

 But I couldn’t move on. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. Days later and I still felt withdrawn, ashamed, and dirty. And I didn’t even do anything. Continue reading “I wasn’t going to share this: #metoo”

How To Pack Light

Okay, so I have to share this article because it totally applies to me (and I’m sure thousands of other people who tend to overpack). The more you travel, the better you get at packing. You realize what you do really need (such as toiletries, one pair of sturdy shoes, etc.) and what you don’t need (ten shirts, 5 pairs of pants, 3 shirts per day – all for a weekend trip). For this travel news post, you’ll learn how flight attendants, those constant travelers, pack for each trip. Hint: It doesn’t involve many things – just strategy. Continue reading “How To Pack Light”
