Jan Gets a Blog!
I realized one of my long-time goals and launched my Girl on the Go blog covering travel-related news, events in Atlanta and relationships. Check out other blogs from travelgirl contributors here.
Pick of the Week
I love to travel with OKA b shoes because they are comfortable, washable and stylish. Now there are dozens of styles and colors to choose from. Take your pick of slides, flat, heels, spa classics and mules, either plain or with jewels, stones, flowers, ribbons and bows. I'm loving my new pair of Alexandras (pictured) to put some sparkle in my step. And I love that they are made in the US and if they ever do wear out, you can recycle them. $40 and under at
Live from Sundance! Our Associate Publisher Robyn Klugman's brother-in-law is the amazingly talented Brian Klugman, whose new movie "The Words" is being featured at Sundance January 27. Follow Robyn's tweets @travelgirlmag as she hangs with the stars, including Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Jeremy Irons. "The Words" follows a writer (Cooper) who, at the peak of his literary success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man's work.

Make it Kiev
Gaining popularity as a European destination off the beaten path, Kiev is hosting its inaugural International Biennale of Contemporary Art from May 17 to August 1. In conjunction with the main event, state and private museums and galleries will be presenting a variety of programs as well. Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, is one of Europe's largest and oldest cities, believed to have been founded in the 5th century. http://www.art-arsenalfund.org/home/?lang=eng
