In November, I visited the city of love to celebrate the most important kind of love. With the close of 2017, I promise myself to travel more and to travel alone more often. Although I still plan on taking trips with my friends and family, I’ve realized after this vacation that it’s both refreshing and necessary to my own sanity and growth to go on solo explorations of this world (once in a while).
I have one (of many) trips I’ve been wanting to share. In October, my brother and I flew to Vancouver to hike Joffre Lakes in Pemberton B.C. with my cousins. The trip was incredibly special to me and quite honestly, I am still reveling in the experience two months later. My first visit to Pemberton was last September for my cousin’s wedding. Ever since, I found myself googling and itching to go back to see […]
My roommate and I wanted to get out of the city for Labor Day weekend and found ourselves driving toward Scottsdale, AZ. It took us 8 hours in 110+ degree weather to get there, but it was the perfect random weekend we had envisioned.
I find myself in the ocean, I lose myself in the ocean I went to Maui and I fell in love. With the water, the sand, the green, the people, the food, the air, basically everything in and around the island. Being physically distant from some places and honestly, some people, allows me to live in the moment and enjoy life.
My roommate and I went to Tash and Devin’s Monday Swimwear pop-up at The Beverly Hills Hotel, where they promoted their new “Summer Nights” collection the day before it became available online. We fell in LOVE with the new collection, and we are SO excited to wear our new suits this summer. I chose the Clovelly in Nude/Ivory, and Eunice opted for the St. Barths in Olive.
This past weekend + part of this week, I was in the Dominican Republic with three girlfriends to celebrate birthdays and to just… vacay. “Birthdays” were moreso the excuse to gtf away of responsibilities for a hot sec and tan our bums. It was my second time there, and this time was very different than my first time. We were light on drinking and heavy on relaxing. The 4.5 day getaway was exactly what we all needed.
I am a big fan of Elizabeth Gilbert. Even BIGGER fan of her book-turned-movie, Eat, Pray, Love. When I saw this book standing on the shelf at LaGuardia, and saw her name on the brightest, almost too colorful cover that would scream, ‘Hi, look at me! I’m reading a book,’ I took a picture of it. Yes, I took a picture of the cover of the book. I didn’t buy it. Because I don’t buy books in airports […]
