Staying Stylish on the Road

Staying Stylish on the Road

For someone that travels as much as I do, it can be hard to keep up any semblance of a beauty regimen. I hardly wear makeup, but it can be several months between haircuts. And don’t even think about manicures and pedicures unless there’s a special occasion coming up, namely conferences or friends’ weddings. But now I have a way of keeping up appearances while on the road.

Flying Over Atlanta

air show

Some days my job has perks. Last week was one such day. I was going to a media preview of the Great Georgia Air Show, which took place over the weekend south of Atlanta in Peachtree City. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the day, but I figured if nothing else, I would get a free lunch and opportunities for some photos for This Is My South. But what I got was even better.

Career Advice from a #GIRLBOSS

Career Advice from a #GIRLBOSS

10610830_10204292215206713_5016125020140206437_n

I am the most recent reader of #GIRLBOSS by NastyGal founder Sophia Amoruso. Many people recommended it and my sister let me borrow her copy. The book has been making waves for its advice for females in their careers. I’m lucky that I haven’t been placed at a disadvantage in my career for being a woman, but that isn’t the case for everyone. Amoruso started as a thrift store shopper before…

Photo Friday: Asheville, North Carolina

Two weeks ago, I joined my mom and sister for a road trip up to Asheville, North Carolina. My sister’s friend was getting married and I wasn’t doing anything, so I decided to tag along. I’m not much of a mountain girl, but I always love spending time in Asheville. I hoped to swing by a few breweries during the weekend, but my time was mostly devoted to the wedding.

Attending Bangkok’s Calypso Ladyboy Cabaret

It’s not something originally on my itinerary for the Australasian Adventure, but when I found out my friend was having her bachelorette party (hen’s night) in Bangkok, I knew the night would end up in an interesting way. After what felt like a 20 course Thai dinner with sunset views of Wat Arun, we hopped in three overpriced taxis so that we wouldn’t be late for Calypso Cabaret, our second stop…

Frequently Asked Questions on Solo Travel in Southeast Asia

Frequently Asked Questions on Solo Travel in Southeast Asia

After writing the post on questions about solo travel in Turkey, I decided to make this a series to answer your burning questions about what it’s really like to travel certain areas solo or as a female. In this case, I was traveling Southeast Asia with my sister, but many of the questions still apply. Southeast Asia is one of the most commonly visited places for backpackers, so there’s certainly…
