North Fork in the Fall

I’ve been to the North Fork in Long Island many times; it’s one of my favorite weekend getaways during the Summer.  The Summer is probably the most popular time to visit the North Fork but after this last trip, I would have to say that the Fall is also a great time.  What I love […]

Twenty Sixteen

Every New Year’s Eve, I reflect on the past year and think about all the accomplishments, set-backs, adventures and heartbreak.  It’s the only way I know where I’ve been and where I want to go.  If there is one thing I can take away from 2016, it’s to keep the important people in my life […]

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 […]

NY
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 […]

Italy
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 […]

Italy
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 […]

Italy
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 […]

DIY
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 […]

Canada
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 […]
