Barbados: on video!

It’s been a while since I took a solo trip–especially to a super romantic island! Even though I would have loved to visit Barbados with David, there was still PLENTY to enjoy on my own: I basically read Gone with the Wind in the sunshine the entire time, took long walks on the beach while listening to […]

Postcard from the Empire State Building

It’s really easy for New York City to lose that tourist sparkle after you’ve lived there for a few years. Sure, you still marvel at seeing the city all sparkly when you’re in a cab going over the Brooklyn Bridge late at night and you revel in the crazy variety of restaurants you can find.But […]

Laguna Beach: on video!

I’m back in New York City after such a fun weekend in Southern California, feeling so rejuvenated for the week and winter ahead. It started off on an epic note: when my best friend picked me up at LAX, she surprised me with VIP Kanye West tickets (she’s kind of a big deal). We went […]

A weekend at Wilderness Field Notes

A confession that is likely not very surprising: I’m not much of a camper. I quite enjoy those lovely modern amenities like mattresses and indoor plumbing, and I’m not very willing to sacrifice them. That said, I love being outside in clean, fresh air (aka: not outside on the loud and dirty streets of Manhattan) […]
