The misadventures of a writer, food snob, fashion junkie and accidental housewife . . . This is a lifestyle blog with an expat twist.
A little about me — I currently live in Tokyo, Japan, with my husband, Craig after some time in Detroit, Chicago and New York City. We relocated here in February 2014. I work from home as an editor, writer, blogger and social media manager. I’ve written for The Wall Street Journal, The Style Line, Hollywood.com, TWC Central, Deep Japan, Currantly.com, HealthyTokyo, Venus Zine and Daily Candy. This blog is my way of documenting expatriate life in Tokyo along with my favorite products, fashion, food, workouts and more.
The name of this blog is taken from my favorite quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “The voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks.” I have had many stops on my journey so far and believe a life fully lived should always be an adventure.
Thanks for stopping by!
