How to do a weekend in NYC

  I’m in a New York state of mind… While many of my posts are about international travel, I wanted to write about another place closer to home and to my heart. New York City is one of my favorite places! It never gets old to me. There is so much to do and seeContinue reading “How to do a weekend in NYC”

I like big books and I cannot lie…

You know how we all have little idiosyncrasies that make us weird special? We sometimes aren’t even aware of something being strange until someone else points it out. (I.e. my mom taught me to make scrambled eggs in the microwave and I thought everyone did it that way for a while). So growing up one ofContinue reading “I like big books and I cannot lie…”

The Yacht Week: Croatia

I spent my birthday in Croatia and we did The Yacht Week which was incredible! I have been wanting to go to Croatia for years!

Soft Hair with Nanoil

My hair needed some TLC after being in the salty waters of the Mediterranean! I was on the hunt for a remedy… a good deep conditioning treatment wasn’t cutting it and coincidentally, Nanoil was kind enough to send me some of their hair oil. Typically, I don’t use any products on my hair on aContinue reading “Soft Hair with Nanoil”

My shopping hack

The thing about my favorite hobby – travel – is that I’ve had to sacrifice a whole lot of other things to go on these amazing adventures. It has to be worth it for me to spend money on something else, ya know? Because those trips to the mall can add up to be aContinue reading “My shopping hack”

6 Steps to Become a Morning Person

Full disclaimer – I used to be the worst in the mornings. Hitting snooze when I knew I shouldn’t and rushing around. I’d even have that argument with myself that went something like this, “Okay alarm is going off… how much time do you need to get ready? Like 35-40 minutes-ish? LIES. What do IContinue reading “6 Steps to Become a Morning Person”

Havana Nights

Happy New Year to all!! I went to Havana, Cuba with friends to ring in the New Year and I’m so happy I went!
