#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 15 – Exploring Devon, England.

This particular vlog is very special to me. It documents my first time exploring Devon County in England with my boyfriend Emil. I had the pleasure of meeting his lovely family and wandering around Totnes, the town that he grew up in. I quickly fell in love with the English countryside and its undeniable charm; and if any of you ever have the opportunity to venture outside of London to the south coasts of England, I wholeheartedly suggest you do so. This weekend trip really provided some context in terms of the type o[...]

Why You Should Tinder Abroad.

I think it's pretty safe to say that Tinder has garnered a bit of a "bad rep" amongst some communities. For those who stand firmly behind the "old-fashioned" way of meeting people and for those who care more about the quality of their interactions vs. the quantity, Tinder can come off a bit, um ... aggressive. That's one way to put it. Well, coming from someone who was never into online dating, I'm here to tell you that there are "other" ways to use Tinder, because I'm a part of one of the few real success stories that have[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 14 – My 31st Birthday in the Philippines!

Posted In: Adventures | Asia | Philippines | travel | trips | video | vlog
For my 31st birthday this past September, I thought what better way to celebrate than with some of my closest friends, in my home country that I hadn't been to in over 10 years - the Philippines! As I've gotten older I've found it more and more important to reconnect with my roots and figure out where I come from, beyond simply my direct upbringing. After all, what good is it to travel to various parts of the world and experience other cultures if you're not even in touch with your own? That said, I felt it necessary t[...]

Malta

#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 13 – NYE in Malta

My boyfriend Emil and I celebrated our first NYE together in Malta. A lot of people have asked how we decided on Malta, and the answer is simply that we googled "warmest places in Europe during Winter", and Malta was one of the options. Make no mistake, the climate isn't anything like countries around the equator during this season, but it's still certainly warm for Europe. Malta was once a part of Italy, and it was also once under British rule; so you'll find bits of Italian, British, even French influence in the citysc[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 12 – Tattoo Time (Again)

Yesterday I visited Lyle Tuttle tattoo shop in North Beach, San Francisco to get a tattoo (or two). It's been over two years since I got my last tattoo so I was long overdue. My friends Alanna and John picked me up and we had a full-on tattoo party at the shop, complete with beers (I don't drink beer but I had a sip lol) and tattoos all around. "Nowhere to go but everywhere" is from On the Road Again by Jack Kerouac. Even as a simple, standalone statement like that, out of context, I believe it's so fitting for me becaus[...]
