Sometimes jumping on a plane, train or automobile isn’t in the cards, and your only opportunity to vacate is at home sweet home.
Christiane S-M O’Connor is a true insider—as a Danish actress, TV host, and founder of the uber-chic Chri Chri, an online magazine devoted to inspiring women—she’s not only one of the most in-demand people in all of Denmark, but she’s really lived and breathed all that fantastic Danish culture.
The Sundance Film Festival has been known to be the launching pad for many a successful independent film (Little Miss Sunshine, The Usual Suspects, and this year’s film-to-watch, Boyhood, all premiered at Sundance)—but this once small, idyllic film festival set in the mountains of Park City, Utah, is now much, much more than its humble beginnings.
It wasn’t until filming the pilot for Suits that I began to know NY. And it wasn’t until a good year after that, that I began to know NY well. I found my nook. My downtown: a little grubby, a little rough around the edges, a lot stylish, and as cool as I aspired to be – we’re talking the Lower East Side.
One frosty London evening over dinner and drinks with my friend, Bella Musgrave, I had the pleasure of meeting the unforgettable Sophie Edelstein. As a director, screenwriter & Arts Editor of RUSSH Magazine, Sophie has her hands immersed in the creative, and that’s clear the moment you meet her.

Let’s talk Sarah Flint. I have yet to meet her, but I just love her. I love that at the age of 24 she started her eponymous shoe collection that carries a range of heels, flats, and sandals as covetable as one can imagine (ahem, as seen in almost every Instagram picture I have taken of late).
Oh, mon dieu. How lucky to have two of my most adored things in one singular Tig post? 1. The city of Montreal, which always charms my socks off with its incredible eats (hi, most perfect bagels of all time), culture, and Quebequois je ne sais quoi.
The pearl of the Danube, Budapest, is without question one of the most visually stunning cities you’ll ever visit; its range of neo-gothic architecture, over 80 thermal hot springs, photo worthy Hungarian Parliament and Buda Castle, plus its distinct cultural quarters and rich history deservedly categorize it as a World Heritage Site.
There’s always that rush of excitement when you’re planning for a trip —where you’re gonna frolic, the trinkets you’ll find, the local eats you will devour- it’s easy to get swept up in all the planning.
