    Community Spirit to Help the Environment

    I’m going to preface this post by saying I totally believe that climate change is real and that we need to do more to save the planet. With that being said, I could do a lot more on my part to help facilitate change. GlasdonĀ has thought of a list of ways that people can get in the community spirit and effectively help the environment. It’s a fact that we are using up our resources, polluting, overfishing, and more. It’s our responsibility as inhabitants on this earth to work together to find sustainable ways of living. Glasdon believes: “Social responsibility does not fall on the shoulders of just one, or few…

    Modilize Launch Party

    Happy Wednesday! This week has been so busy that it feels much later in the week than Wednesday, but at least we’re one day closer to the weekend. So last Saturday during New York Fashion Week (NYFW) I went in to the city for theĀ Modilize Launch Party. Modilize is a soon to be released app for online shopping that is going to streamline the shopping experience for women. I’m excited for it to officially launch! In the meantime though, I had a great time at their NYFW launch party. I arrived in the city about an hour before the event started, so I walked around the neighborhood a little and…

    New Home Tips

    If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you know I recently became a homeowner. I’m loving my place but there are definitely a few things that I want to change and there are also a few things that I wish the former owners had told me. It’s a bit annoying, but there’s nothing I can do about it now except take care of what needs taking care of. However, if you are renting instead of buying then you have a lot more options than I do in terms of holding others accountable for things that need to get done in your place. For me as a townhouse…

    Getting Ready for Fall

    Fall has quickly become my favorite season in the past few years. I don’t know why considering I associate fall with summer vacation being over and having to go back to work. However, there’s just something about fall that I love. The crisp, cool air. Apple cider donuts. Breaking out the cozy sweaters. Oh and ushering in the holiday season, of course. Since I’m in a new space (my townhouse), I picked up a few fall decor things. I didn’t want to go overboard with decorating, plus I don’t have the money to! So it was just a few things. First, I got this super cute leaf candle holder from…

    #fbf Poolside in Hong Kong

    Since it’s the first Friday of the school year and I’ve survived the first week I thought I’d do a flash back Friday post. Of course, I picked a #fbf from my vacation last month since apparently I’m already in need of a vacation! Swimsuit: Target I wrote about my little bit of pool time in Hong Kong at my hotel, Conrad Hong Kong, in my blog post (here). It’s been so disgustingly hot out the past few days that I wish I had a pool to jump in to! I can’t wait for fall weather to finally come around, but for now I’ll just look back at these photos…

    August 2018 Favorites

    Can you believe it’s already September? I can’t! Even yesterday when it was the last day of August, it didn’t really hit me that it was the end of August. I have just a few favorites to share this month. I feel like I’ve been saying that a lot lately, but I think when you’re busy you just have less time to think about what you’re really loving lately. First up, if you follow my blog and/or my social media accounts regularly then you know I spent the first half of August in Japan and Hong Kong. While in Japan we had pretty great weather, despite sweating to death in…

    Just Livin’ the Dream Pajamas + Life Update

    I was looking at pajama sets earlier this summer when I came across this cute oversized tee + striped shorts set from Gap. I love Gap pajamas – they’re always so comfy and fit well. I loved the graphic on the tee with the colorful “Just Livin’ the Dream” matched with the light blue and white wide striped shorts. It was the perfect pajamas for me to take with me on vacation so I wore them for the whole 2 weeks I was away which happily coincided with my birthday. Pajamas: GAP GAP does mix and match for pajamas so I bought the tee and shorts separately, but I love…

    Hello from Japan

    Good morning from Tokyo, Japan! Or good evening where I am. If you’ve been keeping up with me on my Instagram stories, then you already know I’m in Japan for a week for vacation and then heading to Hong Kong for a week before going home. I’m writing this on Thursday night (Japan time) so I’ve just gone through a long travel day plus time change and I’m trying to stay awake until 10pm right now before passing out. So I’m using this introductory travel diary post to recap my travel day. A car service picked me and my family up at 7am eastern time on Wednesday. Since the flight…

    July 2018 Favorites

    When this post goes live I should be sitting at the airport waiting to board my flight for vacation! My posts the next few days have already been written and scheduled, but as long as my hotel internet is working I should have my first travel post up this weekend! I’ll be gone for about 2 weeks, so look out for exciting travel posts! The month of July was super busy with family visiting, moving, short trips to Baltimore and historical Philadelphia, and seeing Taylor Swift in concert. With being so busy I don’t have a lot of favorites to share so this post will be short! The first favorite…

    A Day in Historic Philadelphia

    Philadelphia is about 90 minutes from me, but I rarely go. Growing up, I would go to New York City as it’s an easy 45 minute drive from where I grew up and everyone in my area of New Jersey calls NYC, “the city”. Over the years I have been to Philadelphia a handful of times, but still not that many. I recently went, but stayed mostly in the historic area for some sightseeing. The last time I went to historic Philly was when I was in 5th grade – it was the field trip for 5th graders every year at my school. Actually – as I type this I…
