Meet Marla

Welcome! I’m a southern girl at heart and a flight attendant by trade.  I divide my time between sunny Orlando, Florida, and the rest of the world…and I want to bring the world to you.

My bags have been packed for a top-shelf adventure since 1999, when I first started my professional career and this great life in the skies.  Join me as I share some of the world’s most delicious foods to eat, unique boutiques to browse around each corner, and the best hot spots between here and there.  Along the way, I’ll share travel stories and reviews, recipes, thoughts on wellness, book recommendations, and even tips for what to do on that long layover.

We’re all looking for the best in life – sophistication, fun, beauty, well-being.  I hope you’ll find these pages full of advice to encourage and inspire you to find your own chic lifestyle – whether it’s across the ocean, on the opposite coast, or at your own table.

It’s a delight to meet you.  Let’s go have an adventure, shall we?

Please feel free to contact me [at] askmarla@marlayoung.com and say hello. Thank you for visiting my blog.
