During my traveling years, I’ve never spent time in Phoenix (other than making connections in their airport). It’s quite a colorful city. Maybe the next time you have a connection there, book yourself a little extra time so you can spend a few hours exploreing. Here are a few things you can do to pass the time: Tres Leches is a colorful cafe and the perfect place to grab a quick cafe con leche. Pick up an authentic Mexican pastry while […]
Welcome to Stavanger, 3rd largest city in Noway. I imagine locals would tell you not to waste your time here, but I really enjoyed wandering this sweet, colorful little city. Its official founding dates back to 1125. But more recently, it has become the Oil Capital of Noway. It’s an expensive place to spend time, however, if you adjust the way you eat, it can cushion the blow. We stayed at The Clarion Hotel Downtown for a decent price, which included […]

Let your weird hang loose! See a […]

Here are a few hot spots you can’t afford to miss: The Van Gogh Museum: Take note that I got to see one […]
Pilsen is quite possibly my favorite Chicago neighborhood. There is a large hispanic presence in the area–creating a colorful vibe from street to street. There are murals and art instillations everywhere you look. If you’re going to spend the afternoon in the area, here are a few hot spots: La Vaca Margarita Bar: grab a drink and chill on the patio walk along Halsted and go into the art studios along the way grab a meat pie or scotch egg at Pleasant […]
My favorite part of Detroit is all of the colors– it’s the home of street art. Each building has a million stories to tell and there are a million different ways to interpret them. I thought I’d wear some art on one of my Carhartt jean jackets much like the buildings wearing art in Detroit. See how you can make these fabric applique flowers yourself HERE.
