Swans are a common sight in England, but did you know that all unmarked mute swans in open water are owned by the Queen? It’s true--in the medieval period, swans were considered a delicacy only available to the Crown and those to whom permission to own or eat them was granted (only wealthy landowners need apply); despite tastes changing throughout the centuries, the law has remained. Currently her Majesty only exercises this right of ownership on certain stretches of the Thames and shares ownership with two companies--the Dyer’s Company and the Vitner’s Company--who were granted rights of ownership by the Crown in the 1400s. Every year during the ceremonial Swan Upping, swans are counted, apportioned among the three owners, tagged, and monitored for health. Originally tagging was done by cutting a symbol into the swans’ beaks with a metal instrument but today the much more humane method of placing a small metal ring around a leg is employed. The Swan Upping occurs over a five-day period the third week of July.

These are a few of my faaavorite things 🎶

FREEBIE ALERT** 🚨

Here are just a few of my top makeup goodies from Beautycounter.

When I started using #cleanbeauty for the first time, I stuck to skin care. I think it’s an easier transition and makes sense to stick with “natural” and “clean” when you’re talking skin care but what about your makeup routine?

Now that’s a little harder...
Good thing we have @beautycounter leading the way to #betterbeauty. Never compromising on performance or brilliance!

With @christy_coleman cookin’ everything up for us; she is truly THE BEST 😙

Now until Sept. 27th, when you purchase your Flawless in Five: Clean Beauty starter kit, you’ll receive our award winning Instant Eye Makeup Remover FREE!

Think about it, your face will thank you for cutting out the chemicals 😉

Sometimes it takes a whole lot of patience and faith to get to where you want to be 😕

Warning! I’m about to rant... why is it that your car breaks down just when you need to attend a business meeting an hour and a half away??? The subway is down and it’s warm and humid so your hair will look as if you went into a car wash... how I wish I had woken up on this beach rather than my crummy humid and construction ridden city 😫
.
Hope your day is off to a better start than mine! .

While we were in Naples, we took a boat to the little island of Procida. It’s one of those places that you think will never quite live up to its photos. Except it really really did! Not only is it unspoilt, pretty and pastel-coloured but it was also peaceful on a September weekday - fishermen were mending nets and island life was going on. Plus we found a lovely beach with black sand, turquoise water and a fab place for lunch. We almost missed the boat home 😀. #familytravel #naplesitaly #campania #procida #visititaly .

When you have that wicked cold that’s been going around, you grab an old sweatshirt and a cup of tea, and dream that you are back in New England with one of your faves, strolling the beach and dreaming about where to venture next!

Can you spot the motorbike? #leicaminilux

We’re often taught to downplay strengths and apologize for weaknesses. You know what I have to say about that? NOT TODAY! What’s something you’re really proud of right now? 🙋🏻‍♀️💪🏻❤️
I’ve been stressing a bit about how to continue this nomadic lifestyle now that I’ve aged out of all working holidays (👵🏻). But since leaving Australia, I’ve picked up some amazing clients whose social media is fun to manage and partnered with some pretty awesome brands to promote destinations and products I love. #believeinyourself #hustle

🥑☀️Suns out and the amazing @zeezsa is looking super sunny with our sparkly avocado pouch n earrings.💖🥑Hands up who'd love to be on the Amalfi coast right now?.🙌

Ricordo il primo giorno delle superiori, la primissima persona che incontrai all' entrata eri proprio tu hahahahahaha mi viene da ridere perché penso a quanto siamo cambiate (per fortuna perché eravamo vestite oscene) continuando l'avventura nella fredda Parigi... No aspè Perugia! Adesso che hai raggiunto parte del tuo sogno mi sento un po' sola. Però dai se penso che sarò la prossima mi consolo (più o meno). Spero resterai sempre buona e sorridente come ti ho conosciuta! Love you💞🐈

They say a picture holds a thousand words and this one surely does for me. Traveling with @italianfix to #cinqueterre for a workshop with @justinablakeney melded all the things I love: business, social media, travel, beauty, extraordinary women.
It’s where I met @carolinewphoto, @catalamitad and @amirarahimart.
That was a few years ago, but I’m still happy to have these women (and memories) in my ♥️. Go check out @italianfix because #communityovercompetition always.
It seems I’m traveling a ton this year, where’s your next trip?
