What does “living your best life,” mean to you? It means something different for everyone. What are the things in your life that make you happy and can you make a list of those things? Sometimes it’s easier said than done. Traveling hits the top of my list. Adventures allow me to breathe deeper, dream bigger, and focus on the priorities in my life, even when it may seem a bit rocky along the way. Read on…
You are on vaca, and you are headed to the pool. What’s your outfit of choice? A swimsuit, coverup, flip flops…the usual, right? One would think that would be an appropriate outfit, for a beach day. I happen to agree, so I slipped into my teeny, multicolored bikini and headed for the pool.
Give them one giant squeeze, stir yourself a cocktail, step into your fanciest party dress, and get ready for one wild ride. At least that’s the way I like to tackle challenges, so I challenge you to do the same.
It sounds like a simple task, and yet it’s an easy one to forget. There are places and spaces that help me to breathe much easier, and Maui is one of them. It’s quite the distance from NYC, but somehow, this place feels like home.
They were sprinkled across the sky like glitter. I’ve never seen so many stars in my life. There were a million, and I was in awe. The starry skies of Maui were somethinout of fairytale.
What’s your number? How many can you possibly try in a day? Swimsuits… I’m asking about. For me, the price tag and the name brand doesn’t make a difference. Of course, I’ll stick with a brand if I know that it fits me well.
“Hi…I’ll have a margarita, on the rocks with salt. Oh, and the guac sounds delish. Put that on my tab too!” Vacation food really does have me at hello, but how on earth do you keep a bikini bod, while splurging on vacay? I’m no expert, but today, I’m sharing my own summer vacation fitness routine, while traveling.
Have you got a travel bug on your mind? So do I. Always! While I’m not yet an expert on the best beaches in Tahiti, or the the most scenic views of Iceland (although both are on my bucket list), I can share my expertise on my home, New York City. In the almost fourteen years that I’ve lived in this city, I’ve fallen in love with so many places which I’ll be sharing with you in my travel guide below.
Hop a flight and take off to Paris…check! Bring photographer/Instagram husband…double check. Now, what to pack? Dresses, leggings, outerwear, a zillion pairs of shoes…perfect! Now will my hair products and styling tools even fit into my suitcase? I usually pack my flatiron, sprays, and other hair styling products for any occasion. Ok, sit on suitcase, smash suitcase, step on suitcase, say a quick prayer, and it closed! Hallelujah! My hair products and styling tools made the cut! They were on their way to a fancy trip to Paris. Ooh la la!
When Grant and I met, we dated long distance for several years. He lived in Kentucky, and I was here in NYC. I would visit his hometown in Kentucky on the weekends. One day, as he drove me around, I noticed a sign that said Versailles. “Hey, you brought me to France,” I teased. Little did I realize, that there’s a Versailles in Kentucky too. I was caught in a daydream, as we drove. Wouldn’t it be oh-so-lovely to visit Versailles in France together one day? It would be quite the dream.
