Obrigado, São Paulo

Perusing the vendors and kiosks in São Paulo, Brazil, I noticed a young couple showing a lavish display of affection. Right in the center of an outdoor market in Liberdade, equivalent to a Little Tokyo, was a young teenage couple going at it as if no one was watching. As I looked around them, no…

Aloha, travel baddies! I hope all of you have been doing well. The past few months have been very busy for me so I put together a little video compiled of layovers and trips I have recently been on from February to May. I hope you enjoy and if so, please share!   Mahalo, Ashley…

[Video] Feeling Japanese

Hey loves, Japan is a beautiful place – the culture, the trees, the people, the food and the etiquette. My family and I had so much fun while we were there. (Check out Japan Guide if you haven’t already done so.) One thing I learned while being there is how efficient a country could be. Everyone there…

Japan Guide & Cherry Blossom Beauty

Imagine the brisk air caressing your skin. You’re wondering if it’s even worth going to a park when you’re originally from Southern California and 50• is considered cold in your beachland. You walk into Ueno Park, found in Tokyo off of the Ueno stop on the JR train. You walk passed food vendors and can’t help…

Rushed Fools in a Guide to Zion

A boy grabs a book and his camera, staring at the breathtaking view before him. His beautiful girlfriend looks out at the vast canyon that is Zion only seen via Angel’s Landing, a strenuous hike 5,785 feet above sea level and probably unlike any other hike you have experienced. The boy hands his camera to a…

Coffee x Travel Talk with Coast to Costa

Last week, I had the great pleasure of meeting an inspiring individual who founded his own travel tour business, who has a weird fascination for white vans (I’m not talking about Damn Daniel, back at it again Vans), and who recommends the best coffee-order the New Orleans. Andrew Tyree and I met at The Blue…

24 Hours Down Under – Sydney

The Golden Coast seemed to have made a huge impact from down under to the top of my heart. (See what I did there?) I was lucky to pick up a 24 hour layover and although it was a 14 hour flight, my excitement couldn’t have been more real. Upon arriving, I felt a beach…

[Video] #badashtravelsParis

Bonjour, baddies. My little recap of some of the things my friend, Julian, and I did in Paris. Although I was unable to feel the inspiration from the spirits of 1920’s Expats such as Fitzgerald and Hemingway, I was thoroughly impressed by the beauty and modernism that the City of Light has to offer. I…

Finding Creativity

In order to share good content, one must have a good flow of creativity. Whether it be traveling, drinking a London Fog tea latte at Starbucks or meeting a really cool person, it has to come from somewhere. I noticed that my creative spikes occur when I’m in bed and I am on the verge…

The Promiscuous Side of Paris

Paris. 24. What a great idea. I decided to spend my birthday week in Paris with one of my good friends and coworkers named Julian. We spent 4 days in the City of Light in a town called Montmartre – an artsy and urban area. When many bloggers and fashionistas go to Paris, you see…
