Whether your road trip lasts a few hours or a few days, I highly encourage you to take one. Here are 7 things you’ll need to have the best experience possible… Keep reading »
I spent the weekend in Nashville, listening to bluegrass jam bands, googling “Where do Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman hang out?” and eating way more BBQ than any human being should consume in such a short time period. It was glorious. I loved the city, and was totally inspired by the fashion, which is such a fun mix of feminine southern belle style and edgier, trendy pieces. Read on to find out how to get the Nashville look for yourself… Keep reading »
Flying used to be considered mega-glamorous and exciting, but these days, most people treat flying like it’s a horrible inconvenience, and dress much the same. To wit: If I see one more girl in a matching Juicy sweatsuit and Uggs in front of me in line during a TSA screening, I’m going to scream. People, you are in public. Dress better — and more practically for flying! To help you do that, I’ve assembled nine airport fashion dos and don’ts. Watch and learn.

I love movies. I love hot tubs. I love champagne. I love rooftop parties. I love London. Hot Tub Cinema just happens to be a combination of all of those things, so obviously I want to get in on the action. For the past year, Hot Tub Cinema has been putting on rooftop hot tub parties where guests can sip bubbly, flirt with moviegoers in neighboring hot tubs, watch the sun set over the London skyline, and enjoy quality films such as “Anchorman.” I can think of worse ways to spend a September evening.

Early last week, I flew to Los Angeles to tape an upcoming TV appearance (so mysterious, I know) and spent the rest of the week working from our West Coast office. It was busy and kind of stressful because I was attempting to function on dual time zones (my body/mind was perpetually confused about what time it actually was). However, it was also really nice to bask in the ever present California sunshine, witness a few epic sunsets (bottom right), see some friends (bottom left, showing off John DeVore’s first driver’s license), and eat real Mexican food. It also gave me an opportunity to appreciate the random things I happen to enjoy about traveling. Check them out after the jump! Keep reading »
