Alexa Meisler is the editorial director of 52 Perfect Days. Born in Paris, France she has since lived in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Portland. She currently resides in San Diego, with her husband and son where they enjoy exploring the world as often as they can. Travel has always been a part of her life; traveling to such places as Morocco, Tangiers and Spain as a young child as well as taking many road trips to Mexico with her grandparents as a young girl. Since then, she has traveled abroad to locations such as Russia, Taiwan and throughout Europe.

I love travel photography and have been shooting for years, anywhere from Russia to Mexico, I have a great time trying to capture honest and exciting images. I run a website development, SEO and Social Media Marketing agency. My background is in art, photography, design, the business management, internet marketing, technology, online strategies, design, web development, consulting, speaking, publishing, art direction and music. I am a singer and drummer for 30 years and have played with many well-known musicians over the years while living in the Los Angeles area.

Becky is our travel gear expert. In addition to finding and testing the best travel products around, she is also traveling much of the time and sharing some great travel destinations for our site.
Here are Becky’s criteria for selecting travel items:
- pass TSA screening procedures
- pack well
- lightweight, so it doesn't add excessive weight to the bag
- enable women to emerge from a day of travel looking refreshed and wrinkle free.
When possible, I seek out sustainable products so that I can travel while leaving behind as little trace as possible. So while I am sampling these products, I only feature those items that actually work for travelers.
