Hi Everyone! I started this blog in 2011 when I made a major career change from school principal to freelance food and wellness blogger. I had this idea to eat my way around the world to focus on local culture and cuisine and after 5 AMAZING years as a freelance blogger, Little Miss Local is complete! Visit my new website byjustinema.com and subscribe to keep up with my life as a freelance entrepreneur!
Yes you read that correctly, after 5 wonderful years I am no longer contributing to this blog, however I’ve decided to keep this running because the content is AWESOME!
To recap, I traveled to England, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Hungary, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Mexico, Vancouver, and the US ( Seattle, Portland, California, Arizona, Chicago, NYC) for food culture. Prior to the tour I had already been to Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Belize, Jamaica, and probably a few other countries in between as well as few repeats!
On this blog you’ll read about the times I’ve:
- cooked alongside celebrity chefs at the James Beard Foundation
- traveled around the world (YES, I WILL TELL YOU MY FAVORITE COUNTRY. IT WAS THAILAND, 100%!!!!)
- hosted events for companies like SELF Magazine, Lululemon Athletica, NY Yoga Life Magazine (I still offer this service on my new website)
- dined at some of the most fabulous dinner parties in NYC
