Working remotely has become a trend and golden goal in recent years. It provides boundless freedom and opportunities. You are also almost always "at work" with easy access to your emails, website, etcetera. Essentially, you BECOME your office.  It is by far the best thing that has happened in my life! 

It can also feel like you are on an island. You lose the office camaraderie and a structured work environment. Neither my house plants or hotel room desks provide fun office banter. Working remotely is only for the self-motivator, and it can be challenging. We all have tips and tricks for staying focused and balanced while leading a not-so-average lifestyle. I believe we can all learn from one another and bond our growing community of independent and remote businesses. 

Collected on this site are some found favorites from myself and others who have become their own mobile office! See them in "The Tribe" 

Creating Your Mobile Office: Notes on minimizing your office needs, and tips on how to use technology and available resources to get everything done effectively and efficiently without toting your entire desktop.  

Skincare and Beauty: I am a tomboy. I don't even own a hairdryer. However, I do care about taking care of my skin and hair, those are natures foundations! You need less makeup and "maintenance" if you keep the foundation healthy. Constantly changing environments, being in dirty cities or dry deserts, and lack of sleep all lead to the deterioration of your skin. Keep yourself looking young and fresh with a few little tricks!

Health and Fitness: I love doughnuts, and queso, and sleep. I also like fitting into pants. Such a hard balance! It is too easy to fall off the the healthy bandwagon when you have zero daily routine. Make time for yourself. You cannot pour from an empty cup. 

The Tribe: A spotlight on the various professions and friends who have BECOME their office, and their favorite tools of the travel trade. Want in? Shoot me an email! We love new friends. 

Practical Outfits and Accessories: Why are most women's clothes and shoes uncomfortable and not warm enough? Why is everything so heavy? A section full of things to keep you mobile AND cute AND comfortable AND warm. 

Cities: This is honestly just a section of notes for myself to remember things that I like and places I've stayed! Feel free to browse :) 

I am fortunate enough to have a career that involves a significant amount of travel. My mother gave me the adventure bug at a very young age, and neither of us have slowed down since. As long as I can remember, all I wanted was to make my living through travel and learning. By being open to new opportunities, taking risks, and working incredibly hard, here I am! So grateful for this life, and wouldn't trade it for anything.
