Diving Raja Ampat with Samambaia Liveaboard

From living on a classic sailboat, to completing up to four dives each day, this was truly an experience like no other.

SPF every day ☀️
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Ever since I was little, I've made a big effort to take care of my skin and protect it from harmful UV's. Now that I'm rounding out my 20's, fine lines and aging are also concerns and prevention can be as simple as wearing daily SPF! We might only think about putting sunscreen on when we're headed to the beach or pool, but it's so important to protect your skin each and every day (even in the Winter!) Olay just released their Regenerist Whip with SPF 25 so you can easily add SPF to your morning routine. It blends with all skin tones, and doesn't leave an oily or sticky residue under your makeup. Daily SPF for the win! SHOP: http://bit.ly/Kiersten_OlayWhipsSPF

I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels over the years and, honestly, my room at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong was one for the books. I often find that luxury hotels, while beautiful, are sometimes missing that human element. That’s what was truly standout about this hotel. With only 100 rooms, the staff greets every guest by name.

Not only was I welcomed with wine and 8 French macaroons (which I single handedly consumed in this very tub), each night they leave a different present on your bed during turndown service. And not just a chocolate— one night I got a sheet mask, another an aromatherapy spray.

The attention to detail is unlike any luxury hotel I’ve ever experienced. Even if you don’t stay over, their 2 star Michelin restaurant is the #1 rated restaurant in Hong Kong and a must experience in the city!

I spent a whirlwind 3 nights in Singapore, exploring (and eating) my way through the city! I was so excited to finally visit the Cloud Forest— and was thrilled to learn that the most visited attraction in Singapore is equally cool as it is educational. We wound around the forest and gardens and through exhibits dedicated to botanical and environmental education as well as sustainability. Definitely worth the hype!
