Traveler Tuesday – Ashley of A Southern Gypsy

Well, I can't say I have a ton in common with Ashley of A Southern Gypsy, but I am definitely in awe of her. She and I were always the first people in the conference room every morning at BlogHouse in Indianapolis and I feel honored to have gotten to know her.  She is a passionate animal rights activist, vegan food travel and really down-to-earth Southerner who hasn't sat still since she left Indy … [Read more...]

Paris Profiles – 19th Arrondissement with World in Paris

Who better to learn the best parts of a particular neighborhood or arrondissement than someone who lives there?

Traveler Tuesday – Julianne of It’s Five O’Clock Here

Sometimes travel bloggers can have a hard time really nailing their niche (including me!) so I admire people like Crystal of The Cappuccino Traveler and today's Traveler Tuesday spotlight Julianne of It's Five O'Clock Here. Their blogs are travel related through the lens of coffee, or in Julianne's case, cocktails and drinks.  I met Julianne at Bloghouse in Indianapolis and enjoyed her fun-loving, … [Read more...]

J’adore – Gifts that Give Back

I think everyone feels good when they give a gift, you get that little tingle of pleasure knowing something you bought or made has brought pleasure to someone else.  What if you can get that tingle while also shining your halo a bit?  What if your gift for a friend or family member could help a stranger? That feels good, right? In that vein, I'm highlighting a few products from companies that … [Read more...]

Currently November 2017

Currently | 11.16.17 Watching | Movies > We are sort of caught up on series that we like to watch (for the life of me I cannot finish Season 5 of Scandal, it's lost its shine in my opinion) so we are re-watching movies now that we have a new 4k TV.

Tucson Hotel: The Downtown Clifton

During our initial explorations of Tucson we had a fabulous breakfast at 5 Points Restaurant & Market. We loved the space, the building it inhabited, the server, but most of all the food. I left hungry for more and contacted the owner as well as began researching some of the businesses connected to the restaurant. One business that caught my attention was the Downtown Clifton. While leaving 5 … [Read more...]

Paris Profiles – 15th Arrondissement with Forest
