This time around I was coming off of working and traveling since […]

Snapchatting the Magic Kingdom

Tweet How did I find myself walking around Walt Disney World this past week? It’s kind of a funny story. A few months back I volunteered to speak at a conference in Orlando on behalf of the Professional Travel Bloggers Association, where I am the secretary. I agreed to it and then didn’t give it […]

Photo Friday: Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Tweet Before the day spa and plastic surgery, before facials and girlfriend getaways, there was Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The Ozarks town was known for being a resort with healing springs to cure all manners of ailments.

How to Have a Girls Weekend in Charleston

Tweet One of the best places in the world for a girlfriend getaway is my former home of Charleston, South Carolina. I lived there for four years, two of which were in a house with five other girls, so you could say I’m something of an expert. The restaurants, bars, shopping and especially the beaches […]
