#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 directΒ upbringing. After all, what good is it to travel to various parts of the world and experience other cultures ifΒ you're not even in touch with your own? That said, I felt it necessary t[...]

#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.

Travel can be quite the hassle on its own, so the last thing I want or need is luggage that slows me down or is too easily accessible (and I've had both). Thanks to the heavy amount of traveling I've done this year, I've tested various si[...]

This year has blown by and along the way, to my sincere surprise (I say this with all the humility in this heart of mine), I've somehow found myself living what might actually be something remarkably close to my best life. I'm not exactly sure how that came to be - it was a mixture of meeting the right people, dedicating myself wholeheartedly to my craft, asking the right questions, and being ready for opportunities that came while being hungry enough to create my own - but I can honestly say that no matter how hard I wo[...]

#BEAUTIFULIFE VLOG 11 – MAUI 2016

I'm finally, finally back with another travel vlog! This past February I went to Maui with my best friend Mariane, and we had an absolutely amazing time. Thanks to the lovely locals that we met and made friends with during our time there, we got to experience the island in the best way.

Another huge thank you to Kawika's Hill and our Maalaea Beachfront accommodation as well, both listings were beautiful and helped make our s[...]
