  1. I was born in Croatia – in a small town called Bakar on the northern coast near Rijeka – but was only 3 years old when we moved to the U.S..

  2. When I was little I had a habit of packing up pretty and shiny things that I found around the house, and burying them in the backyard.

  3. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved writing. As a tween, I ran a number of e-newsletters that I designed using AOL’s email platform. One of them was called ~*Girlyz*~. (Fancy, huh?)

  4. Likewise, I used to run a Backstreet Boys fan fiction website that was hosted on Angelfire. Yup.

  5. I still love the Backstreet Boys.

  6. I almost always talk out loud to myself or whistle while I’m working.

  7. I secretly judge people who have poor grammar or spelling skills, but ask me to do simple math and I’m completely lost.

  8. In October, after dreaming about it since I was a kid, my husband and I moved from Phoenix to New York City.

  9. Preserving my Croatian culture is important to me.

  10. I have a complete and total obsession with all cute, furry and cuddly animals, babies, things and cartoons. Before I became a freelance writer, I worked in an office setting and my coworkers once decorated my entire workspace with pictures of puppies, hamsters and otherwise cute animals for my birthday. I still have a couple of those pictures.

  11. I eat at least one chocolate item a day…and sometimes more.

  12. I love ABBA.

  13. I am completely Type A about most things in my life…but I am almost always running late to somewhere.

  14. I will work until the day I can’t work anymore, but I also love playing Suzie Homemaker – cooking, decorating and baking.

  15. Besides running Style Jaunt, I’m also a full-time freelance writer and have been published in The New York Post, The Knot, Unboundary by USA Today, Sunset and American Spa. I also help companies in the travel, beauty and fashion industries with their content marketing efforts.

  16. I wrote a book called The Food Lovers’ Guide to Phoenix & Scottsdale.

  17. Travel keeps me sane, inspired and healthy.

  18. I don’t think you need to spend a ton of money to look stylish – some of my favorite places to shop are Target and TJ Maxx – but I do have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with katespade.

  19. I hate turbulence, but I actually like flying. It’s the perfect opportunity to disconnect.

  20. Some of my favorite hotels and resorts that I would design my home after: Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North (Scottsdale), Hotel St. Cecilia (Austin), Round Hill Hotel & Villas (Montego Bay) and Korakia Pensione (Palm Springs).

21. I love to eat. Love it. It’s possibly my favorite thing about life.My favorite season is fall, but I love sunny and beachside vacations.

22. I think Croatia has the most beautiful beaches on planet earth. But I could be biased.

23. One of my favorite things to do when I travel is go shopping, and I document my shopping experiences on Style Jaunt.

24. One of the coolest districts I’ve explored recently is Portland’s West End.

25. When I’m not traveling, my idea of a perfect Friday night is a delicious meal with my husband, good friends, family…and lots of wine.
