5 Ways to Have the Best New York Experience

Go to all the places you would never think of going. Walk until your feet hurt. Drink wine. Drink mezcal. Don’t go to bed at all. Rinse and repeat. New York is one of those places that will either overwhelm you or captivate you. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by the constant movement of the city, but also incredibly easy to just be in awe of every moment, every corner, every view. In order to…

Paris Fashion Week 2017

// Xenia of www.xeniaoverdose.com To say that fashion week is crazy is, in the least, a gross understatement. It is by all accounts, insane.

Over the years fashion week has evolved quite a bit, with a lot of the focus shifting to digital media coverage, but it is nevertheless a huge production. I honestly can’t…

Manuel Antonio Beach – Costa Rica

It’s crazy to think that for all the times I’ve traveled to or been in Costa Rica (I used to live there), I’ve only been to the beaches a handful of times. For this trip I made sure we found an opportunity to go, even if just for a day or two. Luckily, we managed to plan a quick trip to Manuel Antonio. I had heard great things about the park and the beaches inside,…

Mountainside in Escazu – Costa Rica

Back in November I traveled to Costa Rica for my grandfather’s 100th birthday and I decided to spend a little time exploring other areas of the country while I was there. I was lucky enough to have a friend traveling with me this time around, so we decided to have some fun and book this incredible airbnb for one night. It wasn’t too far from my grandfather’s house, but going up into the mountains really…
