Maxine Builder

Hi, I’m Maxine.

Over the last five years, I’ve written about travel, food and drink, technology, and beauty for print magazines and digital publications, including New York, Man Repeller, and Bustle. It’s literally my job to unearth new restaurants and bars, find weird yet actually useful products, and be curious about basically everything. But sometimes, my favorite things don’t make the final cut, and there’s always sights from my own travels that I want to share with my friends with more info than what a quickie Instagram post can provide.

So that’s the goal of this site. It’s a place where I can give my own bar and restaurant recommendations, curate travel guides, and suggest products to make your life a little easier. I hope I can help you find an adventurous spirit, too, and I promise to always tell it like it is.


Let’s Keep In Touch
