    Goo Goo Dolls – Dizzy Up the Girl Anniversary Tour

    Happy Friday! If you saw my blog post last week rounding up a few of my favorite Goo Goo Dolls songs then you know I went to see them in concert this week. To make a long story short, Goo Goo Dolls were one of my favorite bands in high school. I loved their music and frontman Johnny Rzeznik. High school was an okay time for me – I wouldn’t say they were the best years but they weren’t miserable either. I would say my high school years were typical and Goo Goo Dolls definitely were my go-to music when I wasn’t listening to NSYNC, Justin Timberlake, and other pop…

    #fbf Leaf

    Two Octobers ago I went to a Harry Potter festival in Pennsylvania with some friends. It was a fun outing, but I remember the weather not being the best and it was super crowded so it was hard to enjoy. When I got to my friend’s car to escape the madness of the festival and to head out of the area to find food where the wait wouldn’t be over an hour, the perfect fall leaf fell on me. Well almost perfect – there were a few holes. It’s the quintessential leaf shape and color! So this flashback post is just to wish you all a happy fall! Here’s hoping…

    Ed Sheeran at Metlife Stadium

    This past Friday night I went to see Ed Sheeran in concert at Metlife Stadium. I’ve long loved his music, but this was the first time I saw him in concert and he was amazing live! I’ve seen him perform at awards shows on TV and late night shows etc. and I’m always in awe of how he can perform all on his own basically with just his guitar and loop pedal. I wanted to give a little recap of the evening so keep reading if you want to hear about it! My friend and I bought tickets just a few weeks ago for this show. We bought tickets in…

    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…
