Organized Packing with LCI Brands Travel

As a musician, I have a lot of little cables, adaptors, devices, make-up, and accessories that I carry around with me whenever I travel. I also have clothes and shoes that need to be neatly stored so that when I arrive, they’re in performance condition. In the past, I just tucked them into whichever pockets I could in my backpack, hoping they’d be protected, only...

A Review of LingQ Language Resources

At the intermediate stage of language learning, one of the best ways to acquire new vocabulary is by reading in your target language. As I’ve mentioned in many of my #clearthelist posts, extensive (and intensive) reading are both a significant part of my learning strategies for each of the languages that I’m studying.

Mad Dumplings | Places to Eat in Southern California Travel

I’m no stranger to food trucks – at music conferences and festivals, there is often plenty to choose from and I’ve had the chance to try out some excellent items. To be honest though, until recently, I’d never gone out of my way to try out a food truck. For me, food trucks were mostly a thing of convenience. If there was one nearby when...

A Review of Little Pim | French & Mandarin Chinese Eurolinguiste

This past month, M and I have experienced a pretty big change, welcoming a new addition to our little family. We’ll call him Little Linguist for now. 😉 Before having kids, M and I spoke about our plans regarding language, particularly because we are a bilingual couple living in a monolingual country. M’s family speaks one language and mine speaks another, and we agreed that...

Chococurb | Unboxing and Review Culture & Cuisine

When it comes to subscription boxes, I think that one of the best things about them is getting access to products you wouldn’t necessarily choose for yourself and that you might not be able to find locally. And when it comes to little indulgences, like chocolates or sweets, I tend to go with something quick and easy (and that’s tried and true) rather than experiment...
