Wishing you PROGRESS in March! What do you wish to create in 2016? This year my focus is to build We Said Go Travel especially the videos! In March, I went on four trips and I was fortunate to visit amazing friends and explore new and old places.
I visited Cupertino, California for the first time and loved the Juniper Hotel Cupertino, Curio Collection by Hilton. Click here for my new video. I saw college friends and family friends and enjoyed celebrating in San Francisco.
I took a team of cameramen to Carlsbad, California and filmed four amazing episodes for We Said Go Travel. I have seen the first edits and cannot wait to share the videos with you when they are ready. If you have not seen Alexis J Estevez‘s work, he is the editor who worked with me to create my REEL!  Please click here to see it!
Thank you to American Express and Starwood Hotels for inviting me to the 35000 Starpoint SPGAmex Challenge! Barbara and I went to New Orleans for a fabulous weekend at the Le Meridien. Click here to read about my #sponsored #SPGAmex journey. We also had a photo shoot with Flytographer–see the photo above for the first glimpse of our work with Amy Martin.
My fourth trip was back to Park City, Utah for amazing Spring Skiing that included a winter storm. I skied 13 days this season and Epic Mix says: I skied 241,000 vertical feet on 186 chairlifts. I loved being in #oneparkcity! The combination of Canyons Resort with Park City has created an incredible number of runs. I love the new gondola (QuickSilver) and new lodge (Miner’s Camp). There are many photos on my social media accounts of my three trips this season:  InstagramFacebookTwitter, Pinterest, YouTube.
See 10 of my Park City videos on this Playlist. Newest: Royal Street at Deer Valley with appearances by Frank and Judi, Miners Camp on Park City Mountain and High West Distillery with Cacinda, Linda & Jen with the Travelocity Roaming Gnome. Coming soon: Powder at the Waldorf Astoria Park City and J&G Grill at the St. Regis Deer Valley.
Lisa LAFW Red CarpetI went to two Los Angeles Fashion Week events: The Beauty Event on Sunday and the opening night Fashion Shows on Thursday. I have two new videos to share from it: Click for Thursday and Sunday. See a photo of me on the Red Carpet below.
I now have 499 travel videos on my YouTube Channel with over 425,000 views. I hope you will consider subscribing. I have 957 subscribers when I get to 1000 I can apply to join a new video project.
The We Said Go Travel Team and I are publishing the Gratitude Travel Writing Contest entries. There will not be a Winter Contest this year. Look for something new starting in May 2016!
