Long-haul flights are the worst. If you’re on a 10-hour flight, cramped up with legroom that even a dog couldn’t fit in, food that is only fit for a prison cafeteria, in seats that I can only imagine are filled with more germs than a toilet, you’re in for one hell of a ride (literally). But not everyone can shell out the ridiculous prices it costs to travel in Business or First Class. “Help me, I’m poor!”

Here are seven tips to make your Economy experience a little less miserable and — although not exactly like Fi...

I'm pretty sure %99 of people would love to quit their jobs and move abroad but alas, there's a thing called money and unless you win the lottery it seems pretty impossible, right?

I'm a millenial. I have been working way too long for my liking (which is only a couple years). Here are a few tips that can help you get a reasonable pay check and never have to "work" again.

Let me take that mansion off of your hands. 

I just discovered this amazing new (probably not that new) thing called Housesitting. People are actually letting strangers hangout in their houses for FREE while they're away. Of course some of these stays require a few household chores like walking dogs and watering plants... but when you can stay in CASTLE for FREE I think that's a pretty fair trade.

Here is a step by step tutorial of how I booked my Business Class flight from Singapore to Los Angeles for just $72. (And mind you, that's a 19 hour flight.)

STEP 1: OPEN THE CHASE SAPPHIRE RESERVE CREDIT CARD

One suitcase. The thought alone gives me anxiety.

As a girl in my mid-twenties, packing all of my clothing and shoes into just one bag seems nearly impossible. Counting each one of my eyelashes would be easier and frankly more fun. When I go on a two-day getaway an hour from my house, I usually leave the door with three suitcases in hand.

Here’s the scenario: two days… that gives me four outfits. For those perfectly picked out outfits, I need shoes. And purses. Cardigans, too. But what if a sudden climate change makes i...

Whenever I get off a long haul flight I look like I got hit by a train, chewed up by a dog and spit out in the middle of the desert. I'm pretty sure 99% of travelers can agree with me that looking good after sitting on a plane for 12 hours is as likely as winning a scratch off lottery ticket.
