Chefchaouen, Morocco

Duo-Chromatic.

Posted In: Adventures | Africa | Morocco | Style | travel
I really loved the look of pairing these warm neutrals with the cool bluish-purple hues of Chefchaouen. It's so neat to be able to wear a duo-chromatic outfit and rely solely on your surroundings to add the pop of color! I thought keeping this ensemble understated was a great way to let the colors of Chefchaouen shine. Every piece in this look is so comfortable breathable, and they're all quality staple pieces that I can mix and match in countless outfits for years to come. The top is from Urban Outfitters, the shorts ar[...]

Overalls in Marrakech.

Posted In: Adventures | Africa | Morocco | Style | travel
Spent a decent amount of time in Morocco in theses amazing Channel Overalls by Ace & Jig. This gorgeous striped fabric is 95% cotton, 5% poly, and 100% breathable (yet somehow still warm when you need them to be) and comfortable. The contrast accent lining is such a gorgeous and mindful peekaboo detail when you cuff the pants for a bit of added character and charm. They also feature a tapered leg to add a bit more of a feminine touch to the silhouette, and completely functional front/side pockets that are the icing on[...]

Shark Diving With Marine Dynamics – Vlogumentary #4 (MindfulTravel TV)

While we were in Cape Town, South Africa last May, we had the absolute pleasure of partnering with Marine Dynamics and Dyer Island Conservation Trust to go Great White Shark Diving in Gansbaai (the Great White Shark capital of the world). We caught up with Tammi, our on-board marine biologist, who told us a little bit about their work, their procedures, and the initiatives they take to not only protect and conserve the animals and their environment, but to educate their visitors as well. Great Whites are truly mag[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 3 – Safari With Cheetah Plains

In celebration of #NaturePhotographyDay, I'm super excited to share our third Vlogumentary - "Safari With Cheetah Plains". During our recent trip to South Africa, we were lucky enough to visit Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and partner up with Cheetah Plains and Jaci's Sabi House, two amazing sister safari lodges that do an incredible job of immersing you in the surrounding environment and wildlife so that you leave with a greater understanding and a sense of ownership of the land and its inhabitants. Their hope is tha[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 2 – Rwanda With Humanity Unified.

I'm really excited to share this video as it is our second Vlogumentary (our series of videos that are hybrids between vlogs and mini-documentaries), and it highlights very real impact Humanity Unified has made, and the visible progress of the community we work with as a result. This past trip felt different from my first 2 because it was clear that by that point the women knew we were there to stay. They knew by then that we truly have their well-being in mind, and it showed in their warm greetings, their bright smil[...]

In Other Words, Faith.

PREFACE: Yes, this post has a preface. It's a long one. But hopefully, it's one you'll find worth the read. 2016 has really begun to unfold into something unlike anything I could have ever imagined. I had traveled a decent amount before this year but definitely incomparable to the amount of travel I've done in just the first quarter of 2016. We all know travel teaches you volumes about the world, but what is equally fascinating is how much it teaches you about yourself. When you've spent a fair amount of time visiting va[...]
