Who else hates being stuck at home?? I know I do.

Since going into isolation to stay safe from the medical harm of COVID-19, it has been difficult to write on my blog. There are bigger problems in the world to be aware of than me sharing a trend I am currently loving! Instagram has not felt like the right place to post either because all my archived photos misrepresent what my life looks like right now. Many bloggers have expre...

Everyone always warns you about the "Freshman 15", but no one warns you about gaining weight after college. Since joining Corporate America, it's been hard to lose weight. Really hard. There are so many work events with happy hours, wine nights and team bonding events with drinks. I felt like the past couple of years, I was going with the flow and not putting my health first. I should of been prioritizing my food and drink opt...

The most beautiful (but cold) time of the year in New York City is back again! As always, from Thanksgiving to New Years, the shops in NYC look beautiful in bright twinkle lights, and holiday decor to grab you into their stores. After living in New York City for a few years, I have rounded up my favorite spots to take friends & family in NYC while on a budget (most of the spots are free).

Bank of America Winter Village at Bryan...

Sailing, New York City to the Caribbean...

Ok, so I'm not actually taking a sailboat from New York City to the Caribbean, but my sailing adventure does start in the NYC waters.

In a couple weeks, my family, boyfriend and I will be going down to the Caribbean to sail in the British Virgin Islands! We will be living on a 48 FT sailboat together and sail to different islands, find amazing snorkel spots and experience the most gor...

Rooftop spas in Manhattan??? Yes, please.

I never thought I would say I went to a spa and had a ~wild~ time...but here I am saying it after a wonderful half day at Premier57. Premier57 is very different than other NYC spas I have visited. I am so excited I found a spa that is perfect to enjoy with a group of friends, has amazing amenities and a fun vibe. If you are someone who wants a quieter experience, then I would suggest vi...

As many of my readers know, I love to try out new experiences. If I am able to share the experience with my boyfriend and close friends, that makes it even more memorable. One of my friends, Molly, reached out to me with a experience she wanted to try out.....ballroom dancing. The last time I participated in ballroom dancing was in 6th grade, and I was too young to remember a lot of the moves. So, we convinced our boyfriends t...

I was doing research online to find a trendy nail salon with a unique experience, and landed across Glosslab. Not only is it the perfect spot for millennials, but also offers monthly memberships on nail services. Unlimited services for manicures and pedicures (gel & regular), polish changes and touch ups all for $89 per month.

I went to go try it out for myself and LOVED the experience! At each manicure and pedicure station, th...

Leaves are changing, vests are being brought out of storage and the air is getting colder. No matter the weather in New York City, one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday is Afternoon Tea. Growing up, I went to a few tea parties in elementary school (shout out Mrs. Baer and Mrs. Kerner), and it was so fun dressing up and trying small, bite-sized treats! Once I graduated college and moved to NYC, I really learned to appreci...

A few months ago, I wanted to get a facial to help keep my skin clean and clear. When I asked to get a facial, the salon recommended a HydraFacial. HydraFacial's help to cleanse, extract, hydrate and more to keep the skin healthy and glowing!

According to HydraFacial's official site, "Only HydraFacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate. HydraFacial super serums are made with nourishing ingredients that cr...

As I get older (and wiser), I am learning that I need to find new and creative ways to de-stress on my post-grad budget with friends.

Kristen is one of those friends that is down for an adventure, and loves an excuse to treat ourselves. When I reached out to Kristen about an afternoon at Red & White Spa, she was just as excited as I was for a girls afternoon at the spa!

I needed a massage (yes, NEEDED) and Kristen got a manicure...
