2011 PART 2: TRAVEL TV HOSTING IN TOKYO, MY OWN VIDEO SERIES FOR HUFFINGTON POST AOL, PRESS TRIP TO MEXICO.
Let’s continue our walk down memory lane, and review the second half of a spectacular 2011.
Sebastiano Serafini and I were guests at Luisaviaroma, an event that brings fashion’s most influential bloggers together. Events included tea with Mulberry, a grand dinner surrounded by animal bones, and haute couture photoshoots in the streets of Florence!
It’s hard not to love Italy. The food, the people, the fashion and architecture… If you missed it, here are all my Europe posts.
A few more milestones… I appeared in Bust Magazine, and on the cover of Alt Noir. I’m on another magazine cover in 2012; can’t wait to spill the beans.
Later that summer, a dream came true: I have a travel TV show on Huffington Post/AOL! In “Coolhunting Wisconsin,” I discover hip, weird, crazy attractions in and around Milwaukee — such as a spy-themed bar and retro love hotel. Watch the videos online.
In July, I jetted back to Tokyo to host and arrange the Japan episode of Fuel TV / Discovery’s Strangers in Danger. The BMX stars got saline donuts in their heads, among other daring tasks. (Are you exhausted from my constant traveling yet?)
The following month, the pretty-boy and I were Guests of Honor at Ani-Jam convention. It was fun to meet all of you who came. I also had a Hello Kitty birthday party at Hollywood club Mr Black, which was featured in LA Weekly.
Back to Tokyo again, to host/arrange episodes of Food Network’s “World’s Weirdest Restaurants,” and appear on NHK Kawaii TV.
I spent Halloween and Day of the Dead in Mazatlan, Mexico — hosting a series about the dark arts and culture. All my Mexican coverage is here, and videos are coming soon.
I haven’t even mentioned the various stops in LA and Vancouver, and my impending return to Italy in January for Firenze4Ever blogger conference…
All in all, it’s been my best year yet! I’m happy with how my work and travels have grown, as well as improvements to the site (loading time, photo quality and styling, etc). And it’s only going to keep getting better. Yarrr.
What are your proudest accomplishments from the past year? Favorite memories? What did you learn, or experience for the first time?
