Photo Friday: Lexington, Kentucky

This past weekend I crossed another state off my list: Kentucky. I flew to Lexington for a press trip to write about over on This Is My South. The itinerary included a lot of awesome stuff (food! beer! bourbon!), but certainly one of the best was attending a horse race at Keeneland, one of the […]

Treating Myself at the Westin Buckhead

The familiar skyline of Buckhead greeted me from the window of my room at the Westin Buckhead Hotel. I was doing a “staycation” of sorts, spending a night at the hotel between two days working downtown, in order to learn more about the major renovations it had undergone recently. I’ve lived in Atlanta for most […]

Photo Friday: Atlanta, Georgia

I’ve written in the past about street art in Atlanta, but one of the city’s best places to both explore and see public art works is The Beltline. I related it to New York’s High Line, as its a former rail line that has been turned into an award winning walking and biking path. It’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Video: The Australasian Adventure

The three months my sister and I spent in Australia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam are ones I’ll never forget. The food was unlike anything I’d ever tasted and the people were so friendly. I also got to meet some new friends, catch up with old ones and give back to the wildlife. Here is a […]
