About Alicia


Welcome to AliciaLatour.com! I’m Alicia, a 20-something traveler & explorer, vegan foodie and cruelty-free beauty enthusiast. I live somewhere in New York with my fiancé, Dave and our pup, Pepe. I started this blog back in late 2014 as a place to share all my favorite things, world travels and random life adventures.

I’m a hobbyist product photographer, who also likes to write, play with makeup, travel the world, bake delicious treats, oil-paint landscapes, and collect random oddities (mostly from my travels).

I want readers to find inspiration to explore the world, whether its alone or with their significant other. Maybe step out of their comfort zone to try some new foods – vegan or not. Or maybe (FINALLY!) buy that bold lipstick shade that they never thought they would wear. Or none of the above, and maybe you’re here just to learn something new. Either way, I appreciate you being here and reading along. It mean’s so much !

-Alicia !
