Hello, Working Girl: Lisa Ng of This Beautiful Day
Meet Lisa Ng, the founder of lifestyle and empowerment blog This Beautiful Day. We recently got to chat with Lisa about all things blogging, travel and pursuing a fulfilling life! Read on to learn more about This Beautiful Day and what's next for the blog. Q: We love that This Beautiful Day hones in on the fact that the blog celebrates smart women. When you began the blog, did you have an overarching vision for it, or did This Beautiful Day change organically along the way?
A: I knew I wanted to share the things that I loved when I launched This Beautiful Day. Two of my biggest life passions are food and travel and the blog sways heavily in that direction. But I have so many other interests as well and I wanted to share all my findings with the world, so the blog became more of a lifestyle website. I currently blog daily on a mix of other topics like beauty, style and life advice.
Q: You also have a lot of adventure under your belt! After two cross-country ventures with your husband, what advice do you have for working women who desire travel? A: Make it a priority and have a mental travel top five. Think of five places you want to visit in the world right now and keep that in the back of your mind when the time, opportunity and budget finally comes together for you. Going to Tokyo and to Munich for Oktoberfest were two dream vacations I was finally able to take. Save your money and don’t go on a vacation you only sort of want to go because it’s cheap. Prioritize your dream trip and go for what you really want! Also, start collecting points on your credit card that you can redeem towards flights. This helps me a lot budget-wise and I have become an American Express Ambassador as a result. My recent round-trip flight from LA to Tokyo only cost me $150 in taxes and of course, a lot of points.
