About

WritingsandWanderlust.com is a travel, style, and culture blog by an telecommuting American, who has an interest in art, fashion, books, and culture.

My name is Lindsay, and I am a freelance writer and part-time fashion buyer from Ocean Beach, CA by way of Duluth, MN.

Growing up, I left my house in the early morning and came back as the sun was setting every summer. Don’t get me wrong—I still played Pretty Pretty Princess, but I also had the thirst for adventure outside the confines of mom supervision.

I can’t say much has changed, except I’m no longer living in a small town in the Midwest, and tree-climbing is not really something I do on a day-to-day basis anymore. Something remains true though, the spirit of curiosity is still a vital part of my personality.

I was able to do a study abroad program at San Diego State University in 2009 where I lived in London then Edinburgh while I started to wind down my college career. Post-graduation, I found myself like most young entry level kids–unemployed. I took this opportunity to make small trips with friends, which then became solo trips after a while. I would come home and work at a temp job for a few months and then jet off to a new place where I could stay up late and not have to run to business meetings or any of that.

Lately I have started telecommuting with my current company, who understands that I am a bit on the (ahem) nomadic side, and I work about 6 hours a day, from Cafes or wherever I can get a wi-fi connection. I try to keep my financial splurges to a minimum, but what can I do–I love clothes and things that smell nice.
