The-Set---Kirby-Kurzeka

Meet Kirby Kurzeka, marketing guru and co-founder of Art of Being Female (a female interest website that profiles women who excel in their areas of expertise). Kirby and I have so many mutual friends, I had always heard the best things about her but we never actually connected until last year, when our good friends Blair & Taryn finally put us in touch for an AOBF California Road Trip Guide. Aside from being a boss, Kirby is a mama of two (you’d never know it by how put-together she is at all times) living in Newport Beach. She has travelled to some of the best hotels in the world and always looks flawless, so I was so excited to learn some of her secrets. Read on to learn more about her travel style…

THE SET (as in, jetset) is a blog series that gives a peek into the travel styles of the jetsetters we adore and admire… Because we’re all a little voyeuristic sometimes – and who isn’t looking for a little distraction right now?
