follow me

Photographer Murad Osmann has turned his 
Instagram account into the newest viral phenomenon with his stunning series, "Follow Me". Osmann snaps stunning pictures of his girlfriend as she leads him through some of the world's most exotic locales, from the beaches of San Sebastien to the crowded streets of Hong Kong, to Venice during Carnival. Not only are the photos artfully composed, but they evoke a undeniable sense of romance, mystery (we never see her face), and full-on wanderlust.

manifest destiny

Though a lifetime resident of the east coast, in recent years I've found myself taking every chance I get to go west. When my brother relocated to Colorado for work in January, I was not upset. A weekend trip, split between the city of Denver and up into mountains, meant lots of family time, serious skiing and even more serious cowboy food.

springing forward

Growing up in Miami, FL, we had two types of weather: hot and hurricane. It wasn't until I moved north for school that I got to appreciate, and anticipate, the changing of the seasons. In one word, scarves. As temperatures climbed to the mid-60s this weekend (more than appropriate for daylight savings time), the entire city shed winter coats, slipped into Sperrys and headed outside to savor the first signs of spring. Obviously it's only a matter of time before I'll be lamenting the heat and wishing for winter, but until then I'll find every excuse to head outdoors with my SPF 30 and a DIY pedicure. I wrote about some kewl places to enjoy springtime here.
