Your Host

Sally Ashour

Hey lovey ladies! For those of you who follow my work, you know how much I love being creative. I love expressing myself through fashion, beauty, and traveling. The main reason why I chose to travel with you guys because what better way to connect with your followers than to travel with them! I have always loved reaching out to you guys and talking to you and I thought going on this trip would be so fun because we will get to know each other on a personal level rather than just getting a small glimpse of each other online. I also would love to go shopping with you guys, share my favorite style tips, content tips, and just have fun overall. It’s something new and exciting and I know it’s going to be a trip we’re all going to remember forever!

There was this quote that always inspired me. It said, “I'm in love with cities I've never been to and people I've never met.” - Melody Truong
