By | December 14th, 2017|

In proper “Model On The Run Away” form, I thought it was only fitting to describe my life as a model…on the move. I find myself in constant motion – be it running to last-minute castings with a bag full of makeup and heels, or flying 40,000 feet above the ground on the way to my next destination. It’s not an easy life, though. Changing countries every three months, being informed of a job the night before with no time to prep, lugging two large suitcases from one end of Milan to the other…it’s hardly as glamorous as one might think. But being a model has taught me to tackle life’s little roadblocks, to appreciate the changes that come along with such a hectic lifestyle. And along the way, I’ve realized a few things.

24 Hours In Mumbai: Sights, Smells, Soul.

By | December 8th, 2017|

I’ve spent the past ten months in Mumbai, working as a model and freelance writer. The city certainly gives me a lot to talk about. I’m an American, born and raised, so imagine the confusion of my family and friends back home when I said, “Guys, I’ve fallen in love with India and I’m not coming home!” Mumbai holds an energy that even the most skilled writers have difficulty expressing in words. It’s best described as a city of extremes – from noisy streets littered with cars, children, and animals, to serene gulleys lined with temples and houses of generations’ old families.

Unique souvenir ideas to make your travel memories last forever

By | November 28th, 2017|

Souvenir hunting is a must activity during any trip. We often want to bring gifts for our friends and family, colleagues at work and, of course, ourselves. Moreover, the temptation to buy magnets and postcards is often great. But do not let it take over.

What to pack for a cold weather trip

By | November 23rd, 2017|

So many people are fond of traveling and exploring new places. But very few of us enjoy the process of packing the suitcase, even if there is an exciting journey waiting ahead. Despite our feelings, the quality of the trip depends on how well we have picked the items to bring with us. In my experience, it is always easier during the summer, because two pairs of shorts and a couple of T-shirts are pretty much enough for a short vacation. But if it is cold outside, you really don’t want to walk around searching for a coat or feel freezing just because you have forgotten your winter boots.
