The Five Things I Tell Everyone To Do After They Move to LA to Be a Writer

Jessie Rosen - November 6, 2014

I like to pay it forward by having coffee/lunch/drinks/mani-pedis with family friends or acquaintances who’ve recently moved to L.A. (but mostly mani-pedis). Really kind people did the same thing for me when I first made the transition, and it’s literally the least I can do considering I have no jobs or ins at hotel roof pools to offer.

Why You Need a Travel Consultant

Jessie Rosen - August 28, 2014

As you know, I can fall a tad on the confident side. I think I know how to handle my business best by myself – from planning a wedding to planning an Emmy Awards outfit. Sometimes I do (see wedding) and sometimes I don’t (see Emmys, though to be clear it was the shopping not ultimately deciding that was complete and utter crazy town). Our …

20-Nothings Travels: How Travel Makes Me Feel Small in the Best Possible Way

Jessie Rosen - July 3, 2014

tag out, don’t care I’m not an entirely calm person by nature. I’m not prone to outbursts or anxiety attacks, but my mind and body are most commonly racing at a stomach-ache inducing speed.

Jessie Rosen - June 28, 2014

from my fancy hotel room My not so little #honeymoonacrossamerica gave me a not so little travel bug. Luckily some new friends at VISIT FLORIDA offered me the chance to take a second one, solo, but still. Hello from the insane Fontainebleau Miami Beach where I’m experiencing all that Miami/Florida has to offer in the form of the insane iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party. Iggy Azalea …

Jessie Rosen - June 26, 2014

Tomorrow I leave for the very incredible opportunity to experience the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party in Miami Florida (at the very incredible Fontainebleau Miami Beach). My trip is sponsored by VISIT FLORIDA, a group entrusting me to bring the journey from my laptop to your living room (slash iPhone) in as vivid detail as my bullet-point recaps can bring. Much like the #honeymoonacrossamerica, you can …

Honeymoon Across America: Days 7 & 8

Jessie Rosen - May 20, 2014

I didn’t write on the technical 7th day of our trip because I was too busy doing absolutely (but drinking Parker Cooladas) at The Parker pool. Then I didn’t write on the technical 8th day of our trip because I was too busy recovering from doing absolutely nothing (but drinking Parker Cooladas, and dirty martinis, and free red wine, and EATING SMORES) at The Parker …
