LA Scrapbook

I’ve been going to LA ever since I was a little girl.  I have tons of friends and family there so naturally, it’s become my home away from home.  LA has changed so much in these last couple of years that I have to admit, it’s starting to grow on me.  I love that LA […]

Best Things To Do in Seattle

I’ve been to Seattle a couple of times now to visit my best friend Janelle who lives there.  Each time I go, I always end up doing the same tourist driven activities because my travel companion at the time has never been.  Since I’ve been to most of the must-see and do things in Seattle, […]

It’s Been Too Long

Golden hour view of Downtown Manhattan Hi friends!  I took an unexpected hiatus from writing and taking photos.  After the Summer ended, it seemed like I couldn’t get a handle on any sort of work/life balance.  I have a full time job, relationships to tend to, and just everyday life stuff.  My friend pointed out […]

Jacob Riis Park

I didn’t think it was possible but I discovered a new beach this Summer in New York; Jacob Riis Park.  If you’re familiar with Rockaway Beach, Jacob Riis is on the West side of the isle.  Rockaway Beach is my favorite in New York because there’s easy subway access (the A train goes directly to […]

Amalfi Coast Drive

With Positano as our home base, I really wanted to venture out to the other towns in the Amalfi Coast.  I was told that the best way to see the other towns is to drive to them.  I have been on some epic scenic drives in my life but I have to say that the Amalfi […]

Positano

After the Sorrento wedding weekend, My girlfriend Grace came to meet me and together, we went to Positano.  We just thought it was so fitting that two best girlfriends would decide to go to the most romantic town together.  Positano is a town that usually attracts honeymooners and couples.  It is definitely one of the […]

Sorrento & Capri

I went to Sorrento, Italy back in June for my girlfriend’s wedding.  It was my first time in Sorrento and I couldn’t have picked a more romantic place for my good friend Jackie to get married to the love of her life.  After the wedding weekend was over, it definitely solidified for me that I […]

Pineapple Flower Vase

I love Summer birthdays even though mine is in March.  I love pool parties, popsicles, BBQs, and water gun fights.  I go all out for my friends and families’ birthdays when they are in the Summer because it’s so much more fun to celebrate outdoors with fun props.  I made these for my aunt’s birthday […]

Québec City

My girlfriends and I wanted to take a girls trip for a weekend in April.  We were debating between warm and cold destinations.  In April, you can go either way.  My girlfriend Marcella has always wanted to go to Québec City.  I’ve honestly never even considered going to Québec City; mostly because I didn’t know […]

The Perfect Girls Weekend

I very much believe there is a recipe for the perfect girls weekend: 1) an easy-going and organized hostess 2) a good group of girls preferably all easy-going 3) good wine 4) really well stocked in wine 5) good food 6) and location, location location!  I met my good gal pal Natasha exactly 6 years […]

Atlanta

My college roommate moved to Atlanta last Fall and I was due for a visit.  I didn’t know that much about Atlanta.  I’ve only been to Atlanta once as a kid.  My family went on a road trip to Disney world in Florida and Atlanta was one of our pit stops.  I have to be […]

Victoria Falls

I can honestly say that I’ve never considered traveling by myself.  Not only did the idea scare me, I just didn’t see the point.  I believed that the whole point of going on a trip is to share that experience with someone.  I don’t even know what changed my mind.  Maybe it’s getting older or […]
