Shhh… Prepping for a little adventure


Guess what guys… I’m prepping for a little adventure!

I’ll be live Tweeting and Instagraming Thursday, October 24th.  There may be a little bit of vlogging going on too… but you’ll have to wait and see.

As a contributor to Dave’s Travel Corner, I will be exploring a bit of charming Catalina Island and getting a more in-depth look at some of the accommodations they have on offer.   

There’s nothing like Island life, especially in off season! Tweet me using #MeghanInCatalina with your tips and suggestions.

Can’t wait to share my thoughts with you.

In the comments section below, let me know if you’ve experienced Catalina Island or if you’ve been dying to check it out.

More soon…

My video content will be a mix of first hand footage and photos of my experiences. You can expect themes like: Beauty & Fashion Tips, Product & Service Reviews, Day Trip Suggestions, & Event Coverage.

I’m even toying with a second channel, Candid Moments, which will offer a more behind the scenes, impromptu, day-in-the-life vlog style content. More on this later…

Tour of Asia? How LUXE!

I am head over heals for LUXE City Guides! 

Less is more… They are witty, sassy, informative, and compact.  This accordion style travel guide is also linked to an up-to-the-minute app for online updates.

Check out the complete array of LUXE City Guides charting: Europe & the Middle East, Asia, North America, and the Pacific.
