The Goodbye Girl

The Goodbye Girl

Saying goodbye has never been something I was good at.  Yes, it’s hard for everyone.  I know.  But...dare I say it?  I may just take goodbyes harder than the next person.  I dread them.  I have nightmares about them.  I hate them and feel their pain before they even happen. Perhaps it's my abandonment issues...my [...]

March ’16 GLOBAL GIRLS

March ’16 GLOBAL GIRLS

2016, month three.  How are you holding up wherever you are in the world? Personally, I am feeling anxious this month.  Anxious and excited for all that is to come this year.  So many amazing experiences I never saw coming are happening because I decided to take a major leap of faith and travel the [...]

Watching the Ads Go By

Watching the Ads Go By

What's "hot" and "trending" thrown all over the pages and I'm not [...]

Bali sans Javier

Bali sans Javier

"Expectation is the root of all heartache."  -William Shakespeare My Bali experience has been magical.  Truly life changing. I've been to see a healer.  I've meditated and walked through the jungle and the rice fields.  I've read and wrote...a lot.  I have swam in the pool and down at the river.  I have basked in the [...]

Safe, Smart, Solo Female Travel 

Safe, Smart, Solo Female Travel 

As a traveling woman of the 21st century who identifies as a feminist, I hate to say that I have learned it is still very much "a man's world" out there.  While traveling alone, I've realized the importance of being cognizant of this and acting accordingly. Before I left the states I never wanted to [...]

Taxi Cab Confessions

Taxi Cab Confessions

As I roam around meeting people I feel like a sponge- soaking in every little piece of wisdom and inspiration.  Every person I meet is interesting in some way.  Even the ones I have not been particularly fond of... are interesting.  The guy working at the front desk, the woman on the train, the guy [...]

The Deconstruction of “Pretty”

The Deconstruction of “Pretty”

My roots are showing and so are my freckles. My accessories are either non-existent and/or not matching. My nails are the opposite of “manicured” and my toes…well, let’s not even go there. Just a few months ago, I would not be caught dead looking like this. If I showed up to work with my bare [...]
