Influencers What motivates you to do what you do? Being able to one day have kids and keep living this lifestyle, where I can just take days off at a time if I want, take my kids to the beach all day, and just chill, while still making money. That is what motivates me. I don't think about the future as much as I used to, but I do want kids one day and it'd be cool if life could stay this laid back. Can you share some of the perks of being a travel/ fashion blogger? I'm more of a travel blogger than fashion, but these days I think I’m getting more well-known for fashion. Brands do send me a lot of clothes, shoes, luggage, you name it. It's basically a dream come true. When you have down time, what are some of your favorite things to do? I spend time at the beach, play with my dogs, long coffee lunches with friends, late dinners with my boyfriend (we eat out pretty much every meal in India). I don't work every day, so when I’m not working, I'm usually in the sun. Of course, I'm always traveling, too. I'm based in Goa, but travel probably five months of the year internationally. How many shoes do you have? I read the book, The Magical Art of Tidying Up, about the KonMari Method, and the last time I went to the USA, I filled my dad’s pick-up 44 truck to the brim with my clothes and shoes and got rid of most of them. I think I have about twenty pairs of shoes in Goa and another forty in Ohio – which is nothing compared to how many I got rid of. Heels or flats? Platforms. What is your evening routine? Long dinners out, then home for another shower because India is so muggy in the monsoon – you can't stay clean. I don't wash my hair much though, as the water isn't great, and the sun is already drying it out – every three days or so. Favorite quote? “She turned her can’ts into cans and her dreams into plans”– I don’t know who it’s by. Anything else you want to share with your current and future readers? Going to India on a whim seriously changed my entire life, so I always tell people who are on the brink of a decision to listen closely to their hearts, because their brains will be trying to make the decision when it's the heart that matters.
