Back in Action


After a brief hiatus in NYC, we are back in Nanning!

This beautiful temple is right near our home! On one side of the temple is the Yongjiang River and on the other side is the city center. The temple is even prettier at night when it is all lit up! Unfortunately, the interior is under construction so we could only take pictures of the outside.

Qingxiu Mountain


Qingxiu Mountain is one of the few tourist attractions here in Nanning. It is a beautiful scenic park filled with temples and lush gardens. The team had a day off this week so we decided to explore the grounds with Ryan and his lovely girlfriend, Sunita, who is visiting from London. Sorry for all of the of the sweaty pictures... it was 108 °F that day!

Green Tea Tissue Mask


Tissue masks are HUGE in China... there are entire aisles devoted to these things in stores. I've been dying to try some Chinese skincare products, so naturally the tissue mask was my first stop. They are packed full of vitamins, amino acids and minerals and are extremely hydrating! Besides looking a little crazy in the mask, I loved it!

Victoria Peak, Hong Kong


One of the best/worst things about my Chinese visa is that I have to leave the country every 90 days. Although it is a little inconvenient, it forces us to travel (which I love)! The first trip we took was to Hong Kong. We had the most amazing 48 hours exploring the city and spending time with old friends. I can't wait to go back!

Here are a few pictures from our foggy morning up on Victoria Peak...

Favorite Spot: FreshT


FreshT is one of my favorite spots in Nanning! I stumbled upon this adorable place a few months ago and fell in love. Not only is this place so charming, they also make the most delicious fresh smoothies!
