Where & What to Eat in Paris

Paris, like most tourist infested cities, is a mecca of over priced mediocre restaurants and bars.  You have to seriously do some investigative work to find a place worthy of spending your euro and expanding your wasteline.. especially when we’re talking in the calories we are expecting to consume.  Luckily, I have put in my […]

How to do Paris (right) In 4 Days 

Yay! The city of love, the city of light, the city of crepes and champagne and croque madams and rose and onion soup and macarons and bordeaux.  The home of the Eiffel Tower, Louve, Notre Dame, Arc de trionfo, Montmarte, Luxemborg Gardens, Museo D’Orsay… You get it.  And I get it too.  Planning a trip […]

Hotel Beauty Hacks!

I have a love affair with traveling (shocker, and you thought traveling fig was about coding didn’t you), which happens to lead to the inaccurate assumption that I must be a packing wizard.   And while I have improved over the years, there isn’t a shred of magic in my half-hazard stuffing of belongings into a bag.  How the […]
