Tidy Up Your Travel Life: Marie Kondo Style

Marie Kondo’s magic art of tidying up seems to be all the rage over the past few weeks, thanks to her new Netflix show, ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.’ A few years ago, I put her book, ‘The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing’ on my reading list, but never got around to reading it (it’s still on the list though!). When I found out the other week that she had a Netflix show, I had to watch. I’ve only seen a few episodes, but already I’ve been inspired to reorganize and donate my extra belongings.

The Road to Leh, India

Reaching elevations of 13,000 and 17,480 feet, the two-day bus ride from Manali to Leh (Ladakh), India is not for the faint of heart. Not knowing much about Leh (or where it was exactly), I joined my friends on a standard yet seemingly ill-equipped-for-mountainous-terrain public bus while battling one of the worst mysterious travel illnesses I have ever had (more on that another day – the memory is still to painful). Though the Himalayan mountain views were some of the most stunning views I’ve ever witnessed,  I was pretty certain we would slide off the road at some point… Continue reading “The Road to Leh, India”

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)!

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. Thanks to technology, creating and working for companies or establishing an online business for your personal brand has become easier. And (most importantly) it allows people to travel and work while on the road. Though it seems challenging, and arguably takes some hard work and spotty wifi to maintain, a nomadic work lifestyle is completely possible.

Two Places You Can’t Miss Seeing In Laguna Beach, California

As a native Californian, I’m always thrilled anytime I get to return to The Golden State. On my most recent trip, a road trip with my friend Ashton (who recently wrote several guest posts about travel in Europe and Morocco on The Bohemian Mermaid), we stopped in Laguna Beach for a few days. Let’s just say the beaches in Laguna are absolutely stunning (though the water’s just a taddd colder than the Atlantic Ocean by Florida). I fell in love with the beaches here, so I had to share two places by the Pacific Ocean that you need to see… Continue reading “Two Places You Can’t Miss Seeing In Laguna Beach, California”
