It’s Like Riding a Bike…with Raleigh Bikes

Raleigh Bikes

You know how the old adage goes…it’s like riding a bike, and does that saying sure ring true!  Experiencing the thrill of riding a bike with Raleigh Bikes' freshly debuted and newly stylish “The Superbe” model has never been so sweet! My bike riding skills and days have had a somewhat dubious past and I probably haven’t ridden a bike in about 3 years, maybe more -- full disclosure: I didn’t even learn how to ride a bike until I was perhaps 7 or 8!  (I know crazy but I lived on a hill to be fair!)  So when I received this adorable and stellar bike from Raleigh Bikes, I was a little hesitant to jump right on and start riding, but once I did – you couldn’t get me off the bike --…

Fashion blogger and celebrity Chiara Ferragni has teamed up with National Geographic and SK-II to take on some of the most rugged places in the world. The beauty that awaits them is not just external but internal as well.  Chiara is putting her skin to the test in this arid desert by using SK-II's Essence Facial Treatment.  SK-II uses a special ingredient called Pitera that helps the skin with its radiance and firmness.  SK- II offers luxurious skin care products that are extremely effective and will help Chiara survive in the arid desert. As a blogger and young professional living and working in New York City, I've faced my own set of wild elements.  Many fondly call NYC "The Concrete Jungle" because you have to push through the challenges of crowds of people, small spaces, humidity, snow,…

6 Things to Know Before You Visit Tokyo

Tokyo

Tokyo feels like a giant arcade game that you navigate via small streets that eventually lead to massive pedestrian crossings complete with flashing neon signs in the backdrop.  Tokyo is discrete and flashy all at the same time and yes Tokyo is very accurately portrayed by Lena Dunham on her HBO's show GIRLS.  In Tokyo (and most of Japan), a small unassuming restaurant -- tucked behind a curtain -- is easily situated next to a ramen joint with a flashy sign procuring its dishes of sushi and ramen.  There is so much vibrancy and activity in Tokyo it's hard to know what to do and where to start and what customs to follow locally. So I put together a list of 6 thing to know before you visit Tokyo and a video with 6 things…
