A Life Well-Lived & Traveled, With Style



Welcome to FROM THE RIGHT BANK! I’m Ally, an attorney turned lifestyle expert and consultant currently based in the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia) and it’s my mission to help you live well and travel well, all with style.

For over a decade now, I have been sharing tips and ideas for living what the French call la belle vie in magazines, on tv, and online. So what exactly is la belle vie? To me, it’s many things, including…….

Injecting beauty and style into the everyday;
Creating a beautiful and comfortable home that is personal to us;
Nourishing our minds and souls with literature, music, and the arts;
Expressing our true selves through personal style;
Balancing healthy eating with gourmet indulgences;
Spending time in and connecting with nature; and
Exploring the world and other cultures.

Many of these ideas were gleaned from my years living in Paris and absorbing the French knack for living the good life. I’ve also learned a great deal by observing people living well throughout my extensive travels. (60 countries and still going strong!)

If all of this resonates with you, you may enjoy…..
