Finally - a brand that tries to reach a mature customer base with a mature beauty, not a baby-faced size-O model! My thoughts on Now It Counts, the brand-new magazine I've been working on.

So happy I found the perfect dog-sitter. Not only is he great there, but she sends me pics. Here's my Jax (right) with his new best friend Buffy (left). I am DYING of happiness that he is being well taken care of. Dogs = hardest part of travel.

Vegas, Miami, NYC and LA are fab, but there are so many hot spots in the country that aren't as "famous." 7 fun cities I'm thinking of Right Now - and what to do there!
http://nowitcounts.com/grid-getaways-exploring-us-cities-never-planned-visit/
Sure, it’s fun to book a weekend in popular American cities like Miami, New York and Los Angeles. But some of my favorite jaunts are in cities you might not

I know, I know... I'm the posterchild for Vegas, which is all about the shiny and new. But I fall in love with history, too. Like these amazing, luxe hotels with mega-history on their side!
http://nowitcounts.com/top-10-hotels-world-history/
Yes, this is another Top 10 hotels list (but this one is awesome). Shiny and new has a certain charm (hey, I’m from Las Vegas, epicenter of shiny and new).

Spring has arrived in California! Kicking off this weekend with some pretty flowers near my new home in Silicon Valley.

My favorite part about moving to sunny Silicon Valley has been the changing of the seasons. Right now: springtime flowers.

Do you keep in touch with people you meet on the road?
It is just the name of the game for long term travelers. I came to the realization that travel friends are like one night stands.

My favorite photo (and anecdote!) from my week in Hong Kong.

I didn't realize how long it took to Lantau Island from Hong Kong and almost missed getting to see the famous Big Buddha

Story
Tagline
I'm a life-long travel junkie journalist who works hard to find adventure in everyday life as a self-employed entrepreneur ... after two years of travel and expat living.
Introduction
The last few years have been a blur, from a one-room house in a Costa Rican barrio to the fast life in Las Vegas. I am currently cooling my heels as a small business marketer in Silicon Valley, CA.

For more about my adventures, please check out my personal travel and lifestyle blog: http://daydreamaway.com

My work-in-progress content marketing agency site: http://finalwordcontent.com
Bragging rights
I often juggle 100 things at once. After three years as the high-pressure editor-in-chief of Vegas magazine, I now own two small business, copywrite for several clients, run a personal blog, and try to keep up with my fast-paced life split between Sin City and Silicon Valley. In my spare time, I jet-set.
