Lisbon City Guide + Video!

Portugal is probably one of the most underrated countries in Western Europe. You don't hear too many people enthusiastically proclaim that they're going to Portugal. Unless that person is me. I've been dreaming of going to Portugal since last winter. I can't really say where the idea to spend a month in this country came from, but when I told people I was saving to go to Portugal, I was responded with "why Portugal?" My response: why not Portugal?!

My trip started in Lisbon, which greeted me with unique architecture (all.the.tile), delicious food (read: pastries), and beautiful scenic points that seem to take you all over the world. Have you always dreamed of seeing Christ the Redeemer in Rio? Lisbon has its twin named Christo Rei. Golden Gate Bridge more your fancy? Try the 25 de Abril Bridge.

It's officially been one year since I moved to winter ski holiday wonderland, Vail, Colorado! Since joining the ski resort industry, I receive so many questions on how to stay warm on the mountain, and how to stay healthy (hello, altitude sickness!). If there's one thing this wanna-be snow bunny has learned this past year, it's definitely how to survive the winter season. Hint: take your vitamins (my personal preference is Centrum® MultiGummies®)

With the chilly, but sunny weather and the thin, mountain air at over 8,150 feet, it can be confusing on how to dress appropriately and avoid getting sick. Here are some of my tips to surviving your winter ski getaway. Whether you're more excited to hit the slopes or for apres-ski is up to you!

30 Before 30

I'm goal-oriented and love creating lists - daily to do lists, monthly and annual goals, grocery lists, things I need in my closet get the picture. So why not a 30 before 30 list? I've had this list in my drafts since my 25th birthday back in July (!) and figure I should finally hit the publish button!
