During the tail-end of the cold and long, grueling winter days in New York City, most people who live here simply wish for a glimpse of the sun and for rooftop season to finally arrive. Summers in NYC are amazing; everyone takes advantage of outdoor activities and you...

Cajun and creole food is a staple of the south, and the thought of authentic fried chicken, gumbo and jambalaya had me just as excited as getting to dress up in tutus and sequins head to toe. My friends and I were lucky enough to get a ton of great food and bar suggest...

Mardi Gras has always been one of those bucket list items for me, even though it's kind of ironic given that I'm not a huge fan of crowded places or large festivals...Maybe it was the Cajun and Creole food in New Orleans calling? Or perhaps it was the little girl insid...

And with the blink of an eye, tomorrow is already Halloween! I'm not even kidding, I jumped straight into winter from summer since I seemed to have missed autumn travelling between NYC and Orlando for the last 6 weeks for work. I actually just wrapped up the project th...

Somehow we've made it through the end of July and I can't even believe it! I've had such a busy year so far that the days just roll by pretty quickly now and I realize that I haven't posted as much on the blog as I really loved to do the past year and a half. I've been...

Summer weather hit the East coast pretty late this year, so we only started getting the 90 degree heat waves just a few short weeks ago. I bet you I wasn't the only one looking forward to fully switching my wardrobe over to shorts and dresses without constantly being u...

Boston is finally beginning to feel more like home to me now that I have been traveling here every week for the last 2 months for work. My travel projects for the last year have typically been pretty short term, so I really didn't get that much time to explore Raleigh...

While planning for our trip to Denver, we mainly considered the idea of splitting our time between the state capital and Colorado Springs, which my friends and cousin recommended to visit. I had my eyes set on visiting  Garden of the Gods, but I ultimately gave into Bl...

Thanks Denver. I'll never forget the first flight I've ever missed in my life! You were quite the struggle to get to, but I have a great time regardless. I will forgive you.

A majority of my time is spent rushing to and from airports, and I have to say that I have that...
