    Tell us a little about yourself.

    I’m May, a girl who loves to wander and wonder! I’m originally from Vietnam, and currently based in Los Angeles. Travel, photography, picnic, home décor, event planning, and content creating are a few of my favorite things. I run a travel & lifestyle blog InaraByMay and my Instagram account @mayandtravel has about 200K followers.

    What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
    I’m a creature of habits, and my morning routine pretty much always starts out the same. The first thing I do every day is that I make myself a very special drink: kale, green apple, seaweed, and Manuka honey. I have been drinking this “breakfast” for the past 2 years and I can’t start my day without it. 

    You’re gorgeous, what does your beauty routine look like?
    I believe that healthy lifestyle and healthy foods to eat are the two major pillars I need to build for my beauty routine. All my skincare, haircare, and makeup products are natural, plant-based, and organic. My daily beauty routine is simple: 

     

    • Start the day with my special drink (kale+green apple+seaweed+manuka honey)
    • Consume a healthy breakfast (cereal, grains, berries, acai,…)
    • Make some time for a morning exercise routine 
    • Try to eat plant-based food throughout my day
    • I only apply moisturizer and hydrating cream for my skincare routine. I don’t wear any makeup at all unless I have to go to parties or go out for photo shoots. 
    If you had to wear the same outfit for the rest of your life - what would it be?
    It would be dress, sandals, and straw bag. 

    We want to know, what’s in your bag?
    In all honesty, my handbags are not super clean or neat. I have to admit that my bags are usually stuffed with all kinds of random junk so I make it my mission to organize my handbag at least once a week, tossing out the cookie crumbs, coins, old receipts,…
    What I always have in my bag are wallet, keychain, portable phone charger, sanitizer, Laneige travel-sized cream and moisturizer, and pen. 

    We love your Instagram. What are your favorite apps to edit your photos?
    I always edit my pictures with Lightroom and Photoshop. My favorite app to add some effects is VSCO. 

    May and Travel
    If you could travel anywhere in the world - where would it be?
    I haven’t been to Africa nor South America. They are on my bucket list. 

    What's the fashion essential you can't live without?
    Straw bags. 

    Who are your favorite people to follow on Instagram?

    @wearetravelgirls / @sheisnotlost / @polkadotpassport / @darlingescapes / @ohhcouture / @tuulavintage and @doyoutravel

    What are your favorite trends for spring?
    Floral dress and straw bag. 

    What’s your favorite thing to do in your down time?
    Playing with my dogs and playing the piano. 

    May Pham
    They say you are what you eat, what are you?
    I’m blessed to get to know about Ohsawa macrobiotic diet about a year ago. And since then I have been trying to incorporate macrobiotic ways of eating in my daily meals. Nowadays my diet consists mostly of brown rice, seaweed, miso, vegetables, and grains. I also pay attention to seasonings that I use in my cooking. I substitute table salt with Himalayan salt, white sugar with brown rice syrup, and fish sauce with organic soy sauce. 

    What are your favorite looks from Bikini Luxe?
    My favorite look from Bikini Luxe is Soah Emma Lace Jumpsuit. Flowy and elegant. Perfect outfit for a casual brunch or beach days.

    Where do you get your sense of style from?
    I get my sense of style from other ladies in my life: my mom, my sister, my girlfriends,…

    What inspired you to start your own Blog?
    My blog is inspired by beautiful destinations, by color and nature, and by wonderful people that I’ve met on my journey. 

    Tell us about your dream collab, who is it and why?
    My dream collab would be with any brand that promotes organic, cruelty-free, vegan, and natural products. 

    Girls worldwide want to do what you’re doing, do you have any advice for them?
    Many girls on IG claim they quit 9-to-5 job and follow their dreams. I understand that most of you girls out there don't have that kind of freedom. Don’t be pressured and feel that you have to uproot to have that wanderlust life. Having a stable job and traveling, in my opinion, are just as ideal. I pride myself on having a full-time job and IG is just my hobby. My advice is simple: following your dreams but also being realistic.

    Valentina is a frequent subject of sister Chiara’s fashion blog, The Blonde Salad. The blog covered Valentina’s attendance at the 2017 Miami Fashion Week. The blonde beauty herself wrote a blog post sharing her impressions of the event. By giving her own personal view on the details of the event, Valentina demonstrated how knowledgeable she is about the fashion industry.

    When Valentina launched her bikini line, a Blonde Salad writer published a post sharing all the coveted details about the line of swimsuits. The bright and bold swimsuits include a choice of four bold prints only Valentina could have inspired. These customizable bikinis make it easy to choose from a triangle or bandeau bikini top. The choices in bottoms are ideal for women of all shapes and sizes, and include string and non string styles.
