Working from home can be a HUGE adjustment, especially if you don’t have a dedicated workspace, or you have other people at home who aren’t working. Well, I’ve been working from home for over two and a half years now and to be honest, it took me quite a while to figure out how to really make it work for me. But thankfully after a few years, I’ve finally figured things out and I can’t wait to share them with all of you to make this time a bit easier!
If you’re looking for an adventurous destination full of hiking, history, wildlife, incredible food, and beautiful scenery, look no further than Sri Lanka!

Teaching English in China is great. I taught for multiple different schools and companies all over China. That said, I […]
The country of Georgia is famous for its incredible food and wine. So when in Tbilisi, why not book a Kakheti wine tasting tour to experience Georgian wine culture?! Chris and I officially moved to Tbilisi, Georgia (yes, the COUNTRY not the state) just over a month ago, and the first item on our bucket […]
Seriously, if you’re looking for some bang for your buck, Southeast Asia is the PERFECT place to plan a honeymoon. Not only can you have an incredible hotel for a budget price, but food is also cheap, the beaches are great, and coming from Australia the flights weren’t too bad either!

Your twenties are always a time of immense change, and for me, I wanted to start 2020 by thinking back on the most pivotal moments of the last decade! In the last ten years, I went from a teenager just graduating high school to a married woman with her own business. I took risks, moved […]
So many people are worried about getting scammed or signing a bad contract when it comes to teaching abroad, especially teaching in China. Seriously, I sent out a survey a while back and it was the #1 fear by a mile!!
I myself signed a crappy contract my first year teaching abroad (you can read all about that saga here), so it’s really important to me to make sure that no one else makes my mistakes. I can’t go back in time and fix my contract disaster, but I can at least give you the advice you need to make sure that the teach abroad contract serves your needs and interests.
This month I finally headed back to the US for the holidays! I spent time with my parents in Palm Desert, headed to Lost Angeles for Thanksgiving, and I even took a quick trip to Vegas to see my brother perform with Sabrina Claudio!

Travelers can be some of the hardest people to shop for. How do you buy gifts for people who prioritize experiences over “things”? A few Christmases ago, I made the mistake of saying I wanted some candles for my apartment in China, and I ended up with no less than 8 candles as gifts. Trust me, trying to make weight with a bunch of perfumed glass bricks in my bag wasn’t easy. Whoopsies!
