A day in LA

Hoping off the plane at LAX wasn’t as glamorous or even as memorable as expected. It turns out, like men, most airports are created equal. It was really the city beyond, that sparkled! The First thing I noticed besides the traffic were the characteristic palm trees! I thought it was odd but remarkably considerate of…

Vegas, Baby!

How was Las Vegas? Hot. I know it’s a desert and deserts are hot but every time I’m asked that question the feeling of the sweltering heat rushes my memory and all I can muster as an answer is hot. However , once I manage to cool down and thoughts begin to stream again I…

The Blue Carpet Treatment!

A taste of the juiciest apple! There are about three places synonymous with dreams coming true- The North Pole, Never never land and New York City! Luckily Value Vacations along with Jet Blue can make the last trip happen! It’s important to remember the journey to your destination is just as important as what you’ll…

Value, Virgin & Vacations

I took to the streets of London this past week. There was never a plan for the day until the day of and I loved it! England has so much to offer, it’s not only a great gateway into other European nations to catch a cheap flight. It’s worth sticking around for a cup of…

This is not a Fairy-tale!

I have been struggling with the realization that I, in actual fact am not a princess. I try to replay those indoctrinating tapes my mother equipped me with as a child- “You’re my little princess!”, “How’s my princess?” blah blah blah! I’ve only ever worn plastic pink tiaras, it’s a far cry from shiny diamonds….

Don’t tell me what to do!

All of a sudden people are not telling me what to do. To my absolute dismay, the domineering atmosphere that is the school system has let me loose to join the rat race for misplaced fame and fortune. The well of advice is running low and I’m only now realizing I’m a thirsty, thirsty girl….

10 Things I hate

Donuts I do realize this opinion will cause great division maybe even wars, however I’ve tried my entire life to like donuts and it’s just not happening. 2. Intense grudge holding Let it go! 3. Sandwiches as lunch I much prefer a “big food.” I’m not sure if that has anything to do with being…

Movie Inspired Vacations!

When I’m not traveling because school has grounded me I love to watch movies that feature all the great scenery I’ve been missing out on. It’s a great way to cultivate your day-dreaming skills which in no way helps with your everyday responsibilities, so that’s always good. Luckily, fostering dreams is what I’m all about!…

I’ve picked up the dumbbells!

My optimistic self is telling me summer is just on the horizon, my realistic self is telling me to go read a book and my pessimistic self is telling me I’m not ready for summer! I’ve been thinking deeply and longingly about my summer body while eating pumpernickel bread in an absurdly passionate manner. I…

Striking Out

The irony of being completely blank when hoping to write an extract of sorts about failure is glaring. Unfortunately, we , including me have decided that giving up isn’t a good look and success is riddled with failures. All I want to know is, is anyone else tired of wiping mud off their face, using the…

Travel Wish-List

I’ve been to my fair share of places but there are still so many I haven’t seen! Here’s my travel wish-list and reasons why I’ve been crossing my fingers and clicking my heels in hopes I get there sometime soon. Disclaimer: This list may or may not be based on very superficial reasons hence why I’m eager to go,…

“Magical Realism”

In the Summer of 2016 I took my first visit to Colombia! I word it like this because I know, that I know, that I know and I hope by NOW that you know it will not be my last! South America is close to the Caribbean and for some strange, what I can only…
