LGBT Friendly Hotel Review: Circa 39 in Miami

Circa 39 in Miami Beach is a beautiful (and well-branded) intimate boutique hotel. I was stoked when I heard they were interested in sponsoring my stay.  We landed at Circa 39 for the last day of our 10 day Miami visit and were blown away by the ambiance and attention to detail. To be honest, we spent most of our trip in South beach which was a bit loud and busy for our taste, Circa 39 was just far enough away in Mid Beach to provided the perfect calm after the storm. Wunder Bar & Pool Wunder Bar and pool area were the highlight of the stay for us. Wunder Bar is the cutest little tapas bar in the main lobby of Circa 39. It’s positioned right beside the pool and the perfect place to grab a cocktail and lounge when you get tired of the sand. The pool itself was a nice little oasis with trees surrounding to provide privacy from folks walking on the street. We spent a whole afternoon just lounging and enjoying the ridiculously delicious poolside appetizers from Jules Kitchen. We each had a Smashed Sangria ($14). It’s made with fresh blackberries, lemon and oranges muddled together, then shaken with aged white rum and sweet vermouth. When it arrived it was so cute and served with frozen grapes as ice. While the bar is a bit pricey, they do have great happy hour specials everyday from 4-6pm. It’s just $5 for their tapas style special bites, $6 for beer, $7 for wines and $8 WunderDrinks like the Smashed Sangria. Restaurant Jules Kitchen is hands down...

NYC Pride Weekend Itinerary + GIVEAWAY!

New York City Pride is right around the corner! This year the celebration is Friday, June 24th through Sunday, June 26th 2016. Use this guide as your quick Pride weekend travel itinerary. If you’re reading this before May 20, 2016 make sure you sign up to win TWO ROUND TRIP TICKETS to the pride of your choice from IGLTA and United. Arrive in NYC Friday Afternoon Check into your hotel and get ready for dinner to get your night started. I’d recommend staying somewhere in Lower Manhattan below 50th street and plan to use the train, cabs, and ubers for your trip. Many streets will be blocked off along the parade route and there won’t be any street parking available. Having a car in the city would be way more hassle than it’s worth. Grab Dinner It’s your first night in NYC. Go FULL ON GLAM. Beauty and Essex is my all time favorite restaurant in NYC. It’s a trendy fine dining restaurant hidden inside an old pawn shop. Once you enter the pawn shop you enter through a backdoor into the ultra lux lounge area. Be prepared to be surrounded by a glam crowd and to splurge a bit on imaginative recreations of New American bites in the form of shareable small plates. Try the Crab Rangoon ($17) or the Grilled Cheese, Smoked Bacon & Tomato Soup Dumplings ($16). Don’t forget to order one of the nouveau classic cocktails ($17) or pro-tip sneak off to the ladies room for the free champagne the bathroom attendant serves. After dinner, head to Cielo This year NYC Lesbian Royalty DJ Whitney Day...

LGBT Friendly Hotel Review: The Hotel Astor at Miami Beach

The Hotel Astor is a recently redesigned boutique hotel in the heart of the art deco district of Miami’s South Beach. My partner Lindsay and I were invited to check out the new design and enjoy the South Beach area in exchange for this honest review. South beach is a louder, more party-oriented area, but surprisingly The Hotel Astor was the ideal escape to get away when the party was too much and it was time to cuddle up and relax. When I arrived for check-in, I was greeted by name which was a sweet and surprising touch. It was too early for check in, so Lindsay and I dropped off our bags and headed to the beach. The desk staff were lovely, they didn’t hesitate to check our bags and offered us complimentary water bottles and beach towels as we headed out for the afternoon. The staff was very attentive but casual in a friendly and relaxed way, which made me feel as though they were personally invested in making my stay comfortable. Size of room The room was as big as a New York City studio apartment without the kitchen. The room was decorated in modern contemporary vibes with a lavender-based color scheme. We had a giant king size bed with fluffy faux fur bed throws and a separate lounge area complete with rotating TV and garden views. The deep bathtub big enough for two people and had a ledge perfect for resting a glass of wine. The artisanal toiletries were a nice gender neutral scent that smelled like clean laundry. Staff Everyone was super friendly and (DRUM...

16 Blogs to Help You Become a Better Person

It has never been more apparent that the internet is a place for voicing your political concerns. Social media has become a sounding board for social justice issues and political consciousness-raising. While my blog covers a variety of topics, it’s clear from the comments and emails that I receive that my followers care about diversity and representation in LGBT media. With that in mind, I put together this list of some of my favorite people and communities online. Chescaleigh You might know her from MTV’s Decoded series on Youtube, but she’s killing it in pretty much every corner of the internet. I love her blog and how she uses her platform to cross promote other folks doing rad shit online. Intersectional Feminism for Beginners This blog uses real world examples to explain intersectional feminist thought, theory and common threads. The writing is in common language, which makes it a good place to start for folks new to feminist ideas. Black Girl Dangerous BGD is a nonprofit media channel focusing on all things social justice, with content made for and by queer and trans people of color. Transgender Teen Survival Guide This blog is a community space created for people of all ages who have questions concerning their gender identity and cisgender folks looking to learn about transgender people.

Find Peace and Waterfalls at Ledges Hotel in the Poconos

As a sort of late Valentines, my partner and I got away to the Poconos this past weekend where Select Registry sponsored our stay at Ledges Hotel, *delighted sigh.  The weather was cool and crisp and we took a leisurely morning getting to Ledges, breezing over the rolling, wooded back roads of the Delaware Highlands, stopping at a few of the numerous antiques shops. Caught up in our adventure, as we rounded a wide bend I was so enamored by the battlement-like top of the largest bluestone building (in the world, actually) we missed our turn. Inevitably, this beautiful building happens to be the Hawley Silk Mill which rests on the ridge just above Ledges Hotel, and therefore was our turn. The Factory Aptly named Ledges Hotel, the building is posed on the edge of a series of cascading falls that once powered the buildings original purpose, John S. O’Connor Glass Factory. The falls were frozen on our visit and it took all my control to not stare at them the entire time, endless patterns in silver and blue intricacies of ice with the flow of the falls dancing underneath, breathtaking and likely to wander off with my wonderings. But I digress, the once factory, whose stones know the blue collar determination of revolutions is now a boutique hotel nestled away in the Pocono Mountains. Clean contemporary renovations and design touches made by disciples of Frank Lloyd Wright create and comfortable atmosphere. The rooms high ceilings open up to you as you enter with warm neutral tones and crisp whites, all of it framing and leading your eyes to...

Queers You Should Know: Youtube Traveling Couple Hols & Bear

I sat down with travelling lesbian Youtuber couple, Hols and Bear. They’re from London, travelling the world together. I mean, how cute is that? They document their adventures on YouTube, in the hopes to inspire others to quit their jobs. Oh, and travel. Hey guys, tell me a bit about yourselves. Hello! Well, we are the ripe old ages of 26 and 28, and have been together for almost four years. (Still waiting for that ring). Originally from Plymouth and Hertfordshire, but we lived in London for the past 5 or so years. We both studied Musical Theatre (we met at our audition - gaaaaaaaaay!) but now we’re bums on the road! Aweeee that’s cuteee. You’re currently on an 18-month round the world trip, what gave you the idea to do this? We’ve both always wanted to travel, but the list of places we wanted to go to was so long, that we thought screw it, let’s just do them all! So we quit our jobs, left our flat and bought two backpacks! Definitely a quarter life crisis!   18-months is a REALLY long time…How the heck can you afford to travel this much? Haha, good question! We had to save for a year and a half, got second jobs, and lived under a rock… just kidding (half). It surprised us how much we could save when we put our minds to it though, it just meant being sober at parties, and eating packet noodles far more than is recommended! We had to work in Australia to fund the last part of the trip, but that was an amazing experience in itself, so didn’t...

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly of Freelancing

Despite all the jokes about working from home with no pants on, there are upsides and downsides to starting a freelance career. Making the choice to become a freelancer can be daunting. Like any job, there are perks and tasks you’d rather not be doing. For me, freelancing allows me the flexibility of working on numerous projects at one time in tons of different fields. Somedays I’m a blogger, web designer, copy editor, writer, and social media manager all in one morning. My skills are diverse so I’m able to apply them to many different things. Here are some of my pros and cons for working in the wide world of freelance. Awesome Benefits: Flexible schedule Freelancing allows you to develop your own schedule that fits your needs. As long as the work gets done, it doesn’t matter what time of the day you’re doing it. Are you a night owl that does your best thinking around 10pm? That’s not a problem with a freelance schedule. Maybe you’re a stay at home parent with family responsibilities at different times around the year. Freelancing allows you to adjust your schedule whenever and however you’d like as long as you’re meeting deadlines. Location independent Freelancers work from home offices, in co-working spaces, at coffee shops or even from other countries. Digital nomads are freelancers who travel the world while working online. Communities of freelancers are springing up all over the place with Chiang Mai, Thailand being one of many popular destinations. Some freelancers use the freedom of location to move from space to space exploring new cities along the way. Similarly...

Dinah Shore Doesn’t Have to Fuck Up Your Relationship

I’m getting ready to attend Club Skirt’s Dinah Shore Weekend in Palm Springs, CA March 30- April 3.  The lovely and clever Meg Ten Eyck, gave my girlfriend and I her VIP Press Passes and told us to record our weekend Real L Word style. No pressure. While Dinah is ideal for singles, it doesn’t mean those who are coupled can’t join in the fun too. As a couple, we’ve made it through many pride events smoothly because we follow a certain set of guidelines for mutual respect and love. We follow our guidelines in any context, but they come particularly in handy when we are out together at any queer event where there is a mix of alcohol, perceived anonymity, and hot queer bodies all over. My perception of Dinah Shore is – a series of never ending, wild sweat drenched hot pool parties and glamorous late night events that feel less like real life and more like some lesbians’ fantasy world with whipped cream and a cherry on top. Keep in mind, this year I’m a Dinah Virgin, so most of this is fantasy based on what I’ve seen in the media and heard from my friends’ experiences. In addition to the crazy crowd of beautiful people, there will be some of the hottest and most well-known queer icons of our time (from Lea Delaria of Orange is the New Black to Katherine Moennig of the L Word) in addition to an assemblage of insanely talented female (both lesbian identified and otherwise) musicians and DJs. These are some of my personal tips and tricks that have saved my...

20 Resources for Lesbians Visiting Los Angeles

I recently spent a weekend in West Hollywood on a business trip. I visit Los Angeles several times a year and always stay in West Hollywood aka WeHo if you’re in the know. I just love the funky eclectic little town inside a sprawling urban mega city. Each time I find something new to discover and explore. I can’t lie, I also love that it’s SUPER gay. Like really really gay. It just kinda feels like a home away from home where I can let me hair down and relive all my craziest L Word based fantasies.

Is Queer the Death of the Lesbian Bar?

Growing up, I was the textbook definition of unlikable. My 6th-grade figure was often described as “womanly”, an adjective no 11-year-old wants to be labeled. This was the time of heroine chic and rail-thin celebrities. My parents decided that my curves were to be hidden under oversized clothes. It wasn’t a good look. My stunning wardrobe and awkwardness was coupled with my queerness. Early on I developed a tendency to be sharp-tongued and angry as a coping mechanism. Both of these skills were used liberally with my teachers and peers. Despite being angry and bitter, I desperately wanted to be liked and was constantly trying to prove how worthy I was. Look how many cans I collected for the food drive? See how awesome this club I created is? I can do a back handspring! Not all of these were true. The more I tried to be popular, the worse the outcome. Spoiler; desperate is not a good look. I’m constantly thinking about connection and community, places to meet queer people like me and spaces where I feel comfortable. I’ve been looking for those spaces my whole life. Probably because I was so lonely as a child and as an adult I still crave that hybrid of acceptance, validation and belonging. As a kid, I was surrounded by untrustworthy adults. I was told by well-meaning teachers and social workers that the adults around me would keep me safe, but that message was in direct opposition to what I knew to be true. The message was that older people were there to protect me, while I was simultaneously experiencing neglect...

Girlfriend Adventures to Help You Get Out of Your Daily Rut

I’ve been in a relationship for nearly three years. We’ve lived in different countries, states and cities over the course of our relationship. We’ve spent as much time apart as we have together. We make it work by making sure that we never fall into a day to day rut of just walking through the motions. In previous relationships, I’ve found myself doing the same things day after day. We’d have dinner dates at the same place we’d always go. Lindsay and I made a vow to ensure that doesn’t happen to us and you can too. Isn’t it time to shake things up a bit and head out on an adventure? Check out these girlfriend adventures that help you to get out of your daily rut. Get Out of the Country Seriously, it is not that hard, especially if you are in the US. Check flights.google.com and hit Explore and it will come back with flights for all over the world. Find the one that matches your budget and book it. It isn’t hard to find a last minute flight from Houston to Costa Rica for under $300 round trip! I realize that an extra $300 isn’t accessible for everyone. Day trips are awesome too. For my friends that live on the West Coast or in the Southwest, there is nothing like a road trip to spend a weekend in Mexico. Just four hours south of Phoenix is Rocky Point, Mexico, which is a safe border town right on the Sea of Cortez. For my East Coasters, most of the major cities are just a short drive or...

10 Ideas to Help Long Distance Queer Couples Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Lindsay and I have been dating for a few years, but we’ve never celebrated Valentine’s Day. With me traveling the world, and her cynicism towards manufactured holidays, it was just never a priority for us as a couple. It just wasn’t important because we felt like we didn’t need a holiday to spend quality time together, buy each other gifts or make each other feel special. In the nearly three years we’ve been together, we’ve spent months and months apart. We started long distance while I was in NYC and she was in Harrisburg and then I moved to Korea where we had a 14 hour time difference. Even while living in the US, distance is still an issue because of my travel schedule. Now I’m living in Washington DC while Lindsay is in Harrisburg. It’s only a two-hour drive, but it still limits our time together. This year we’ve decided to celebrate, not because we feel obligated, but because going on dates and exploring new areas is one of our favorite things. As I was planning my top secret Valentine’s Day surprise date for her, I started to think of all the things we’ve done in the past to celebrate occasions when weren’t in the same area. These ideas can be used for celebrating Valentine’s Day or any holiday when you’re away from your love. 10 Ideas to Help Long Distance Queer Couples Celebrate Valentine’s Day! 10 Ideas to Help Long Distance Queer Couples Celebrate Valentine’s Day 1.

REVIEW: LGBTQ Friendly Hotel Freehand Chicago

More wonderful than its nickname suggests, Chicago the “Second City” boasts a first-rate travel experience. The city perched on the coast of Lake Michigan is known for its diverse and eclectic neighborhoods that all offer very different experiences. While there are two specific and historically LGBTQ neighborhoods (Boystown and Andersonville), many areas of town feature specifically LGBTQ-friendly bars, dance nights and events. Despite the neighborhood-focus of the city, most hotel accommodations cannot be found within the neighborhoods, but instead in downtown Chicago. This can make for a very touristy feel to most areas of downtown and in addition can mean that city-center room rates can be quite cost prohibitive for younger and budget travelers. I was happy to discover Freehand, a hotel/hostel combo that offers a variety of shared and smaller private rooms that are priced well below the hotel average. The holidays are a lovely time to see the downtown area and while the cold and wind might be discouraging to others, I was thrilled to have a weekend to take in the sparkling lights and festive atmosphere. And as a bonus, Freehand offered a full daily calendar of activities to do both in downtown and in the nearby and very happening neighborhoods. Atmosphere: Even from the outside of the hotel, the vibe is very on-trend. The lobby is filled with art and design books, mid-century furniture and loads of live plants. It is very Pacific Northwest US with Pendleton blankets and rugs on nearly every surface. The Broken Shaker, the hotel’s cocktail bar and lounge is nestled snugly behind the lobby. The space is intentionally dark with...

14 Tips for Cheap Budget Travel Planning

The number one question I get from readers is “How do you afford to travel all the time?!?” People think I’m either independently wealthy or have some kind of sugar momma footing the bills for my jet-setting lifestyle. The reality is that I make travel a priority and I’m constantly researching budget travel planning tips. Part of my travel is sponsored these days, but I traveled for years before I became a blogger on a very limited budget. Traveling obviously introduces people to new experience but it also changes us as people. The more I travel the more I grow. Use these tips to help spread your dollars just a little bit farther. Building Your Budget Before Going Reframe What Travel Means to You I’m not naive enough to believe that international travel is accessible to everyone. Most people living on minimum wage in the U.S can’t afford basic necessities let alone luxuries like airline tickets. Travel isn’t limited to international destinations or fancy resorts, travel can be as simple as going to the closest major city to your home. Day trips and weekend trips are still a form of travel. You can do many of the same things being a tourist in your own area that you can when you visit another country.  It can be just as rewarding to explore your own state or country as it is to explore other areas of the world. Domestic travel and international travel can be made much more affordable when you give yourself a broader view of what’s possible. Go in The Off Season Most people would  to go to...

Top 9 Instagram Photos of 2015

1 year. 10 countries. 32 brand partnerships. 30,000 followers. 112,000 Instagram hearts. 2015 has been an eventful year with incredible highs and lows. After 3 years of intense labor I took my little hobby from a passing interest to a full time business. I’ve fought through every moment of this year. From the time I missed my flight in the UK and had to borrow money to get home from Europe, or when I dropped my phone (with all my blog photos) off the literal side of a cliff or when I left my brand new DSLR behind on my way to cover‪#‎mygaypride‬. Where there are lows, there are eventual highs & the same happened for me. I landed some of the biggest brand partnerships of my career this year. I Interviewed tons of lesbians on Instagram like Laura Cramer. I partnered with LGBT wedding photographer Tara Beth Robertson on an interview and on a holiday themed photo feature of queer love. I also posted my first YouTube video, which was scary as fuck tbh. Long story short, 2015 was a rollercoaster but also filled with lots of cool shit.   💗 A photo posted by Meg Ten Eyck (@dopesontheroad) on Oct 21, 2015 at 8:28pm PDT Later this week I’ll be interviewing the ever dapper @lauracramer_ for Le Blog.
