Happy Friday, mes amies! I’m excited to announce that I’ve banded together with a few of the best travel bloggers out there to create The Luxury Travel Blog Network! Every week, we’ll be sharing each other’s favorite travel posts, and we’ll also have collaborative posts centering on certain themes (yes, like travel beauty!).
My blog redesign will be live in a couple of days–I cannot wait to finally share it with you–but even though things will be looking slightly different ’round these here parts, it’ll be business as usual. Amazingly, I’m coming up on my 8th anniversary of blogging: can you believe how time flies?
Without further ado, here are the other ladies in The Luxury Travel Blog Network:
Ana Silva O’Reilly is a 30-something globe trotter who finds her peace and quiet on a long-haul business class flight to somewhere warm. Sand on her colourful toes and salt in her hair on a beach somewhere means happiness to her. With a nice piña colada in hand, of course. On a global quest for shoes, she’s currently operating a strict one-in one-out policy, but never gives up. A city girl at heart, she moved to the quiet English countryside for love, and lives her travel dreams through her award-winning alter-ego and travel blog Mrs. O Around the World. She can also be serious, when she puts her international marketing and social media consulting skills or her MBA at work.
Check out Ana on Mrsoaroundtheworld.com | love travel. love people. love shoes.
You can also follow her on Twitter or like (and love) her on Facebook.
