Travel Safety and Style: Travelon

Travel Safety

It is probably safe to say that I worry about safety. In fact, it may be safer to say that I can be down right, paranoid — about safety that is. Maybe it was ingrained in me when I was kid who was perpetually in unfamiliar surroundings because we travelled so often. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I was mugged once. Not the, “hey, that guy stole my wallet” kind of mugged, but the gruesome, bloody,...

Mohops: The Perfect Shoe — Dancing In My Head

Mohop high thong

Whenever I pack for a trip, I find myself in a dilemma over which shoes to take with me. Pumps? Flats? Comfy wedges? I need versatility but I don’t want to be stuck with only neutral black and brown shoes to go with all my outfits. I’ve always thought “wouldn’t it be great if there was one pair of shoes that I could wear in a bunch of different ways with loads of different outfits? I fancy myself an inventor/designer of sorts, so for years, I...

Global Style: Prague's Petticoat Junction

I recently came across a website featuring adorable modern girls in skillfully coiffed bouffants, ruby red lips and petticoat skirts of a 50’s era gone by. One look at the style of these sexy June-Cleaver-esque-sirens and I was immediately hooked! The apparent brain child of Prague based designer Hana Beranová, the dresses of Lazy Eye are inspired by the iconic 1950’s American woman while being constructed from more practical modern fabrics. This new sassy take on a classic look has...

Sweet Smell of Success: A Pay-It-Forward Giveaway!

You may have heard me say this before, but my ultimate goal for this blog is to figure out how to monetize it (in a cool way). That way I can spend my days actually being paid to work on it while traveling the world full-time. A big dream, I know. Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending Internet Prophets LIVE! A 3-day event featuring 29 SEO, marketing, branding, software and coaching experts who shared more internet knowledge than you can stuff...

I am hosting a Travel Inspired Beauty Giveaway!

Why, you say? What’s the occasion? Mostly because it’s about time. I love giveaways, contests and freebies as you have may have noticed from recent posts. When I started this blog, I had always intended to host giveaways. As a beauty artist and savvy shopper, I have a beauty collection of new products and samples that would make any glamazon green with envy. So the truth is, I have been putting it off because it’s one more thing in the...
