We are fully in holiday mode with festive parties and much needed breaks on the horizon! This time of year is particularly busy closing the books at the office, attending events and entertaining wonderful guests. I try to get all my gift shopping done early and have compiled the top 10 best gifts for travelers!
Although my blog is still very young and truth be told I haven’t dedicated as much time to SEO and social media strategies as I should, receiving recognition from other bloggers is so encouraging! I am really honored and have to thank Daniela at The Lost Romanian for the Blogger Recognition Award.
There are few things I enjoy less than having to wait in line. Maybe it’s the New Yorker in me or my obsessive craving for efficiency, but traveling can certainly test my patience. From unexpected traffic to delays out of my control, I am always holding my breath until I am actually at my destination. So what has me sighing in relief? When I am able to breeze through TSA Precheck security or get home sooner after an international flight thanks to Global Entry. What are these programs and to which one do I recommend applying? Read on to find out!
I’ve been nominated for The Liebster Award! I’m so excited and thankful for Kat at Kat’s Gone Global for the nomination. Blogging can be a somewhat reclusive activity, so it’s really rewarding to see when posts make an impact on readers. I love hearing about your travels and comments so feel free to always keep those coming!
Tomorrow is Bastille Day, or la Fête nationale, commemorating the Storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, which was a turning point during the French Revolution and the Fête de la Fédération the following year that united the French people. A few weeks ago, I was in France with Grey Goose and Soho House, celebrating French culture and how to #LiveYourBestSummer. I took a mixology class with Grey Goose’s head bartender, Barbara, where I learned to make Grey Goose’s refreshing cocktail of the summer, Le Grand Fizz. Enjoy the recipe below to make your own Le Grand Fizz for Bastille Day!
