Hello, and thank you visiting my website!
I am a blogger focusing on shopping, travel and jewelry, and in particular, the intersection of those three.
I recently moved with my husband, 1-year-old daughter and two cats to the Los Angeles area from Hamburg, Germany. Prior to Germany, I spent 2.5 years in Paris, completing an M.B.A. at HEC Paris and then developing a shopping tourism business. Before business school, I lived in New York City for ten years, freelancing in fashion editorial and p.r., then working in marketing and later advertising sales at Glamour, Self, Advertising Age and The Hollywood Reporter. I grew up in St. Louis Park, Minnesota and consider myself a Midwestern girl at heart.
I’m an avid and passionate traveler. I’ve visited over 30 countries on five continents, and lived abroad in London, Paris, Hamburg and the South of France. My jewelry importing business grew out of my love of travel, which allowed me to work with artisans and designers in Asia and Africa. I attended an international business school in order to learn from people from many different cultures, and to develop a global network of friends and business partners. I’ve traveled extensively in Western Europe and the United States, and will continue to find new adventures around the world!
