Back from Asia and New Collections for June 2016

Did you miss me? Did you even know I was gone? You NEVER notice anything about me! j/k!

But yes, I just got back from a super fun trip to Taiwan (my homeland) and Thailand. I loved seeing new and familiar sites in Taiwan, and getting daily massages in Thailand. I have so many incredible pictures and videos, so here’s just a teensy glimpse into some favorite moments.

I stayed in Jiaoxi, Taiwan, a charming resort town famous for its hot springs, many of which are accessible for free to the public. People get their hydrotherapy on during all hours of the day and night.

For a few dollars, you can “upgrade” your hot springs experience with extra exfoliation, done by fish that eat away at your dead skin. I had no desire to try this. As you can see, it’s fun for all ages.

Here’s the fishing harbor in my mom’s hometown.

We went to the Gold Museum and climbed into a mining cart. The miner’s life is hard; just look at my cousin and me.

My sister and my other cousin hopped in and suddenly, we were on the party train. All aboard! Choo choo!

In my mind, my scarf was billowing like a superhero cape.

In Thailand, we took a cooking class, which was SO fun, inspiring, and educational. Here we are, about to prepare pad thai.

I’d love to share more from my trip because I could go on forever but I need to stop somewhere. Plus, I’ve got to refocus my energy on my next product launch, which is planned for June. More on that later.
