When stepping foot on Cuban soil you really see the influence that…

Phuket, Thailand

Travel Diaries: Phuket, Thailand

“The traveller’s rush that hits you upon arrival to a new place is like a drug. And like a drug, the more you expose yourself to it, the more you want it.” – Clayton B. Cornell  Traveling to Phuket, Thailand was probably one of the most magical and soul satisfying experiences I have had in a while. Who knew that this beautiful country would capture a side of me that I never knew existed. It triggered something. Something special. And coming back I wasn’t the same. My whole life I’ve loved traveling. The rush of being somewhere new and a…

Phoenix, Arizona

Travel Diaries: Arizona

“Actually, the best gift you could’ve given her was a life of adventures.” – Lewis Carroll TRAVEL TO ARIZONA: Early June I got the chance to explore Phoenix, Arizona with several of my travel gals from New York City. I’ve been to Arizona once before (it was to party during college) but this was my first time really exploring and diving into what makes it the largest urban desert state in the country. With so much history to offer you have to travel to Arizona! We got to stay at the luxurious 5 star Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix and…

Laduree, SoHo

A Lunch Date at Laduree NYC

Laduree is seriously one of my favorite places in New York City. It’s beyond delicious. When is coffee and dessert every a bad idea?! Never. Breakfast and lunch are my favorite meals of the day… that is when I’m not running around like crazy and actually remember to eat. But my indecisive self also can’t ever decide which one I’m in the mood for so naturally brunch has become my favorite hobby. I’m always brunchin. There are numerous brunch spots I love in New York but Laduree in SoHo has to be one of my favorite ones! Its true Parisian feel and…

Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge at Sunset

“Into the wild I go… losing myself and finding my soul.” My oh my… the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset is probably one of the most magical and soul sparking things I have ever seen. What is life after all if we don’t live it to the fullest?? Why stay in one place all your life and live a life full of comfort? For most the answer is simple: because it’s safe. Well I think safe is boring and quite frankly a waste of human life. We should always be growing, learning, and striving to be better. If we never take risks,…

Clearwater, Florida

Travel Diaries: Clearwater, Florida

A couple of weeks ago I went on a short but much needed mini vacation to Clearwater, Florida. Clearwater is a city in the Tampa Bay area that includes a long stretch of white sandy beaches and clean blue water. For several years in a row Clearwater Beach has been named one of the best beaches in the U.S. by Trip Advisor! Living in New York has made Florida a fast getaway somewhere warm but after going to Miami several times I wanted to try something new and instead decided to visit Clearwater. Never being there I was in for a…

New York City

Favorite NYC Lunch and Coffee Spots

Amongst a lot of things that New York City is known for its food has to be at the top of the list. I am a huge fan of breakfast and lunch food and can eat it all day. And don’t get me started on coffee… if you know me you know that I’m a huge caffeine addict. Finding delicious New York City lunch and coffee spots was a must for me when I moved to the city, especially picturesque ones.  What I love about New York is that there are countless rooftop and outdoor restaurants and hangout spots. It…

Brooklyn Bridge, NYC

The Magic of NYC: a Brooklyn Bridge Getaway

Even though I’ve been living in New York for almost six months now (I know I can’t believe it myself either) I sometimes still get the urge to visit special landmarks that make New York City what it is. During the warmer NYC nights I love to walk the Brooklyn Bridge late at night, listen to a good playlist, and just clear my mind and think. When I see the view of the city it makes my worries seem so small that they disappear, and it clearly reminds me of the real reason why I moved here in the first place. To me, there’s…
