This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Basking in the Sun with Jessica Simpson…

Okay, not really! But if you can’t get poolside with the designer in person, the second best option is to wear one of her creations. I love this bathing suit of hers.

Fashion Friday A

Sometimes, I find that the most flattering suits feel like armor. They suck me in here, push me up there, and pretty soon, I realize that in one of those contraptions, instead of relaxing on my lounge chair, I’d be squirming around uncomfortably. But this suit of Jessica’s is comfy-plus and cute.

And with this Calvin Klein sarong, I have a cover-up that can be thrown on in a second.

Waikiki is one of my favorite beaches. It has itinerant vendors selling fun drinks and leis, lots of happy people, and a safe swimming zone boarded by a coral reef. Then there are all the daring travelers attempting stand-up yoga in the lagoon. What I love about the vibe of this place is that it doesn’t matter whether people spend more time falling off of their boards and climbing back on than doing yoga. Everyone always has a smile.
