Notre Dame love, faith and the promise of Joy!

  Yesterday I wanted to share about Yann's marathon which was on Sunday but the fire at Notre Dame consumed my every thought, and the marathon trailed far behind in what I wanted to post on my blog. Though today I saw a connection that seemed to bring a moment of stillness in the sadness of what has happened. Chelsea (seven months pregnant) and I followed Yann while he ran the marathon in Paris by mapping out his course, calculating where and at what time he would be along the 42 km trail so th...

Finally, A Skin Tint That Actually Covers Acne & Redness

I used to have a hard time admitting this, but I can now proudly say it: I'm picky. I won't eat a side of vegetables if it has carrots in it, the hotel photos on TripAdvisor have to look pristine before I book a vacation, and don't get me started on dating. Before meeting my boyfriend, I'd always find something wrong with every guy just two minutes into the date. So, it's no shocker that my exacting standards apply to my beauty collection, especially foundation.While I love the idea of a weight...

What and when is the full Pink Moon

It might not sound as cool or dramatic as January’s Super Blood Wolf Moon, but the Pink Moon is still worth marking your calendar for. This Friday, April 19 — at 4:12 PM (PST) to be exact — this year’s Full Pink Moon will reach peak fullness. The name is deceptive, however. It’s not actually pink, it’s just the nickname Native Americans gave to April’s full moon, back when seasons were measured by the lunar calendar. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish moo...

Overcoming the fear of IMPLEMENTATION | By Jeremiah Magone

People are funny. And the way they respond to things rarely makes sense, at least not right away. Just think about how most hoteliers make decisions when it comes to technology upgrades, for example. They start by looking around, talking with technology providers, and going to demos to figure out the best way forward. So far so good… But as soon as it comes to making a commitment, things often come to a screeching halt. Which is strange when you step back and look at it. Because, in th...

Kourtney Kardashian Drops the Mic With Her Rewards Credit Card

Kourtney Kardashian posted a photo of herself to Instagram carrying a credit card with the tag line, “Do you take Amex?” While she’s reported to earn six figures for a sponsored instagram post, there are no such disclosures here and lawyers in the financial services industry are pretty persnickety about such things. So I take this to be her go-to card. Continue reading Kourtney Kardashian Drops the Mic With Her Rewards Credit Card...

A Stunning Video Tribute to Notre-Dame de Paris

International travel videographer Alex Soloviev has already blessed us with his two stunning Berlin travel videos The Inner Layer and Everyday Berlin. Now, on the quite sad occasion of the fire at Notre-Dame, he released a beautiful tribute video of the French Icon that he shot on the roof of the famous church – a place that is probably not going to be accessible for years to come. From here you see those parts of the church that were probably the most destroyed by the devastating fire earlier t...

Wildlife watching Patagonia

For nature lovers and outdoors enthusiasts, South America’s Patagonian territory is often listed near the top of bucket-list destinations. The southernmost regions often get the most coverage for noteworthy places like Torres del Paine. While Patagonia’s mountains, glaciers, and icefields are spectacular, Patagonia in fact sprawls an astounding 402,000 square miles across two countries and 11 provinces. There is much more to discover in this vast landscape. For unforgettable wildlife sighting...

Griffin Club VIP Treatment at the JW Marriott Los Cabos Resort

How do you turn a big beach resort with 299 rooms into a high-service luxury hotel? You make a hotel within a hotel. For the JW Marriott Los Cabos, that means one section called The Griffin Club that's more exclusive and comes with more perks. The JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort and Spa opened the year before last, but there's been such a flurry of new resort openings in the region at the bottom of the Baja Peninsula that we've had to visit three times in the past year in order to keep up. ...

World’s largest airplane takes flies

If you thought commercial jets were huge, you haven’t seen this dual-fuselage aircraft that just took flight over the Mojave Desert in California. Built by the company Stratolaunch, this 500,000-pound aircraft, with a 385-foot wingspan, is now the world’s largest airplane by wingspan. The test flight, which took place on April 13, was the plane’s first-ever time in the air, and it circled the skies for about two and a half hours before returning to the ground. No, this plane won’t be takin...

Most fascinating mosques in China

China has an ambiguous stance in regards to institutionalized faith. On the one hand, the People’s Republic recognizes five religions — Buddhism, Catholicism, Daoism, Islam, and Protestantism — and protects freedom of religious belief under its constitution, but on the other, the Council on Foreign Relations reports that “China is home to one of the largest populations of religious prisoners, likely numbering in the tens of thousands.” With about 22 million believers, Muslims comprise less th...

Mastercard Introduces New Benefits With Lyft, Postmates, Cell Phone Protection Across Tons of Cards

I’ve been a proponent for about two decades for the idea of having at least one each of Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Entirely apart from a card’s benefits, payment networks often have their own unique benefits and also run promotions in conjunction with travel providers. I always want to be prepared to take advantage of the best offers that come along. Mastercard has introduced several new benefits to its cards, largely though not exclusively for its premium ‘World Elite’ cards. Fortu...
