I’m not sure there’s anything better than a weekend with friends, homemade taco nights and visiting one of your favorite cold brew destinations in Brooklyn. And that’s just the start of my recent weekend adventure to NYC.

How To: Free Fall

It’s a long day living in Reseda…is something I would say if I was Tom Petty or John Mayer. Instead, I’m just me, living in and out of the city, loving my mama and America too. But I’ve also experienced a bit of guilt lately from thinking about things left behind, the broken hearts that followed and a dream that got me thinking about thinking less and doing more.

Resilience Is Golden

One of the smartest things I’ve ever done was slow down. Granted, it wasn’t by choice but my quarter-life crisis sure came in handy and helped me sort out my priorities. It doesn’t sound all that glamorous, and it certainly wasn’t, but I definitely learned how to make it worth my while.

To encourage the sun to come out and play, I’ve rounded up a few things to sip, shop, eat & get inspired by!

Survival Tips For Your Quarter-Life Crisis Any Day of the Week

With four months to go, I can nearly say I’ve survived my quarter-life crisis. That being said, the struggle is so very real and I can personally attest that there have been quite a few instances where I have felt disappointed or overwhelmed. When people talk about the “formative years”, I’d like to think they specifically mean your twenties, a period of time where you are literally forming into the person you will ultimately become, encountering, enduring and appreciating situations all on your own without the help of anyone else.

8 Places To Visit During Valentine’s Week

Like most holidays & major events, I will find almost any excuse to prolong the festivities. In this case, the weather has created quite a mess for Bostonians to prepare for and celebrate Valentine’s Day as planned. Because of this, the Governor has called for a week-long celebration to help small businesses that normally would benefit from the personalized products and customer service local small businesses are famous for.
