About Emily

Emily Malkowski | Travel & Lifestyle Blogger based in Buffalo, NY

Hi, I’m Emily!

I’m a 20something from Buffalo, NY, University at Buffalo alumna, marketing strategist, freelance writer, blogger, wannabe dog mom and lover of chips and guac.

In 2018, I found myself working in retail - doing nothing with my all-too-expensive communications degree - stuck in a job that I once loved, but was quickly growing to resent. As the ever-present anxieties of being a recent college grad (with student loans to pay and $0 in savings) refused to let up, I set out to start a blog, travel the country, and live a little more intentionally.

I’ve been writing since I was old enough to put a pen to a paper (or fingers to keys), but I’ve only been putting it on display for strangers on the Internet to read for a little over a year now. In that year, this blog has grown - as have I - and from originally being just a travel blog, it’s morphed into a platform for me to write about anything that strikes me with inspiration (and over-share from time to time).

It’s a blog about everything, nothing, and all the things in between.

These days, I’ve been paying rent via a 9-5 in Internet Marketing (SEO, to be exact) by day, and blogging & freelance copywriting by night. With a side helping of folding sweaters a few nights a week because I just can’t ever escape retail and also I’m a workaholic.

My word vomit can most commonly be found here or in the Notes app on my iPhone, but I’ve also had the pleasure of writing things for brands, blogs & small business throughout the country, including Best of the Bull, Ember Hostel Denver, & She’s Brave, and Gusto + Co, among others.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the Internet.
