How Do You Live the #AmexLife?

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

By: Lisa Ng

It’s the simple things that make me happy these days. I like to keep things as easy as possible, so I can truly be in the moment and soak up what is most important to me.

Living the Amex Life is all about living life to the fullest and I’m ALL about that. 

For me, it was about taking a big risk – switching up my career and not settling for less than the best. This decision was a major catalyst that led me to the life I live today. I decided in my late 20s, that travel was going to be the number one priority in my life. So I moved towards doing freelance work and started taking on projects where I could work remotely. This changed my life. I have more freedom then I could have ever imagined and I was able to go on a travel rampage – planning trips to my dream destinations and seeing as much of the world as possible. 

I truly believe in dreaming big, but I have also learned how important it is to appreciate the little things in life. On Sundays, it’s about riding my bike to my local farmers’ market, laying out a picnic blanket and putting together a little brunch spread from my favourite vendors. Other days, it’s about sneaking out for an hour-long yoga class at lunchtime and having some much needed downtime for myself. 

American Express thinks you should dream big and to realize your potential, which is why I am so honoured to be an American Express Ambassador. As an Amex Cardmember, my Gold Rewards Card has made it easier for me to live the Amex Life. I redeem my Membership Rewards points for flights to my dream destinations and I rarely have to worry about baggage, travel and car insurance when I get there thanks to the benefits on my American Express card. I also use my card for Front-Of-The-Line access when my favourite band is in town, so I can score the best seats in the house.

So I want to know! How do you live the Amex Life? What do you do to get the most out of life and to live your days to the fullest? Are there any daily rituals or simple pleasures you find everyday joy in?
