One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my stories, my photos, the ups and downs of travel. But sometimes, I also just want to remember and share the little things that brought me day-to-day joy. Every Friday, I’ll give you a peek into the book I currently can’t put down, a great restaurant discovery, a fun new product or an inspiring quote: a few things that I think you might enjoy before we all take off into the glory that is the weekend! Cherry blossoms in Washington  Square Park in New York City

It seems like everywhere you turn in New York City this week is in PEAK BLOOM! I have honestly had to stop myself for stopping for every bright pink tree because I would never get anywhere if I did, but it has been seriously tough. They’re just all so gorgeous, especially when paired with the sunshine and bright blue skies we were blessed with earlier this week. Basically I’ve been in flower person heaven, and it is the one time of year that makes me totally OK with winter because this explosion of color and warmth always feels like the most well-deserved reward.

Date night: Amateur Night at the Apollo!

One item on my list of all the things I can’t believe I haven’t done in New York City: Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater. In general, Harlem is an area that I’ve really neglected in my time in New York City: although I know there are tons of incredible restaurants and beautiful brownstones and a vibrant […]

The best of Secret Bay

Secret Bay is basically what honeymoon dreams are made of: personal staff, plunge pools and private villas overlooking the Caribbean. It comes as no surprise that we are very much beach people: my idea of the perfect unplugged vacation involves a good book, a rum drink with an umbrella in it and sand beneath my […]

One thing about deciding where to stay in a new city

Whenever people visit New York City, I always ask where they’re staying–and whenever the answer is Midtown or Times Square, I always cringe on the inside. Sure, there are tons of hotels and a bunch of the main “touristy” spots in the city (Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, Empire State Building, etc.). But […]
