So I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Cuba back in December 2016 with my boyfriend, and since I returned I’ve had a bunch of people ask me questions about how I went and tips […]
It’s the same story every year. NYE approaches and you’re full of hope for what’s to come, full of goals and ambitions and resolutions. And somehow by the end of January, most of those goals are out the window.
Not sure about you, but if I’m not accomplishing something I set out to do, I start getting pretty frustrated and irritated with myself. You know those sappy sayings that always talk about how you’re in control of your life? That if you want a certain thing, you have to go after it and work towards it? Well, I’ve come to realize that all of that is actually totally true. Each of us are in control of the direction our lives take, what we do with our time, and who we become.
It’s a sad but harsh truth: most nightclubs in New York do not stand the test of time when it comes to fickle NYC personalities and patrons. The corner hotspot that was trendy and super exclusive last year suddenly loses its sex appeal, dies a slow and painful death hosting corporate holiday parties, and by next year will be replaced by another club under a new name. C’est la vie.
Europe is a magical place. From the history, to the people, to the culture, to the food, to the beauty and overall atmosphere, you feel this blanket of richness come over you as you walk the streets and take it all in…I do, at least.

New York Fashion Week. It’s a time when the finest and brightest of the city come out to attend the hottest shows, restaurants in trendy neighboorhoods are noisy and packed with gorgeous people, celebrities pour in to be a part of the festivities, and everything is just bustling with an extra dose of excitement.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m obsessed with music and making mixes. Whether it’s a new playlist to reflect a mood or certain era in music, or a CD-mix for a friend to pop into their car stereo before a night out (who doesn’t miss those pre-Bluetooth days?), nothing brings me more joy than sorting, organizing, and putting together a music list for a certain occasion or moment of life.
Now more than ever, the Internet is flooded with people and brands subliminally telling you what to buy, wear, eat, and so much more. It’s not just celebrities selling you stuff anymore; now we have the influence of gorgeous fashion/beauty bloggers or super fit fitness dudes, who have made their lives and passions into walking advertisements, and make you feel like you need to spend money on the products they have/use in order to look or feel a certain way. Don’t get me wrong…it’s genius, and there are many influencers whose tips and product recommendations are actually very useful, so I don’t mean to knock anyone or sound bitter. But it’s also gotten pretty overwhelming…am I right?
