I’m Samantha. My friends call me Sam, baristas call me “Sim,” and my boyfriend calls me Lovebug (which is totally cheesy, but I love it). I live in New York City, am the social media producer for Matador Network, do comedy and improv on the side, and occasionally try to build up the inspiration to write some screenplays I have in the works. I have an affinity for traveling the world, watching British comedy, making people laugh, dancing alone in my room, dressing fashionably, and attempting to make Pinterest crafts (usually with disastrous end results). View my portfolio and photography gallery or hire me for freelance work.
For the first 18 years of my life, I was stuck on a tiny island in the Pacific Northwest and my family didn't travel at all. From 2009 to 2011, I was at university only an hour and a half away from home. Then in September of 2011, my life changed. After years of building up my Anglophile obsession, I finally got a chance to study abroad in England. Those three months changed my entire life. While they were tough and I missed my home, I got to experience a new culture and travel around Europe a bit. After returning home, I knew my travel days were far from over. The next year I went back to Europe twice. But even that wasn’t enough. I needed more. In September 2014, I packed all my belongings and moved to London to attend a grad school program and travel even more. This blog was born from that journey and I’ve kept it up ever since. Since April 2015, I’ve lived in New York City, and that in itself has been an adventure. My main goal is to see the entire world and keep my life as interesting as possible so I have no regrets when I’m old. Here you’ll find a mixture of my many interests; travel, fashion, entertainment and other lifestyle topics.
