What I Loved in October, 2020: Autumn Foliage

A collection of things I loved in October, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. I decided to move back to the East Coast for many reasons, but one of the biggest was that I missed the four seasons. The last time I got to experience autumn and the leaves changing colors was in 2010 before I moved to Los Angeles. Because I grew up around it, and witnessed it every year, it was never a big deal to me. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I actually started to miss it. The other day Billy and I wereRead More →

Election Day 2020 - Separating Voting Myths From Facts

Voting is an important civic duty for any citizen 18 years or older. It’s easy to think since you’re only one person, your vote won’t hold any significance or make a difference. However, your vote always matters. For example, political power is influential, otherwise, people wouldn’t try to take voting rights away from certain individuals. Voting is the principal part of democracy as it gives citizens the power to control the government and choose what policies we will put into place. Political power is also pivotal for the government resources we will receive. This year, your vote in the general election is crucial, since there’sRead More →

Why I’m Leaving Los Angeles After Almost 10 Years

After living in Los Angeles for almost 10 years, Billy and I said goodbye to the city we instantly fell in love with. This past July, as we flew back to New England to spend the summer with my family, we knew there was a chance we wouldn’t be returning to L.A. (at least not for a while). The decision to leave wasn’t one that either of us took lightly. We went back and forth, discussing the pros and cons of leaving Los Angeles and moving to New York City. How we came to our decision to move to New York City It all beganRead More →

What I Loved in September, 2020: NYC sunsets

A collection of things I loved in September, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. Sure, the streets of New York City look a lot different than they did pre-Covid, but spending a few days here (in couldn’t-ask-for-better- weather) has been a completely different experience. Billy and I have been able to get around the city a lot easier since it’s less crowded than what we’re used to.  Whenever I’m vacationing in the city I make a point of stopping in my favorite candy store, Sugarfina. (I love their colorful confections so much, I created a V-Day charcuterie board a fewRead More →

Breakups are at the top of the list of one of the most emotional and stressful events that you can go through in life.

What I Loved in August, 2020

A collection of things I loved in August, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. I kept seeing these gorgeous candles all over Instagram and knew that one would look perfect in my bedroom.

The hardest part was deciding on a scent, but I ended up choosing Freshwater Pearl since it fit best with being at the beach. The 8oz candleRead More →

10 Practical Tips For Dealing With Anxiety

Having an anxiety disorder can be characterized as persistently and excessively worrying about things like disasters, money, health, family, work or any situation where you’re expecting the worst case scenario. Dealing with anxiety is something everyone has to do from time to time. Some, like myself, experience this almost daily at a level where it can become unbearable.

I can definitely relate to this since most of mine is caused by the inability to control certain situations andRead More →

What I Loved in July 2020

A collection of things I loved in July, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. A couple of months ago I tried these plant-based Dream Pops and instantly became hooked. They come in flavors like vanilla matcha (my favorite), chocolate, berry, coconut latte, and mango rosemary. Not only are they refreshing on a scorching summer day, but each pop is only 100 calories and they’re vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free. Last summer I fell in love with Eyeko Beach vegan waterproof mascara for a few reasons. First, it keeps my lashes curled. Second, it doesn’t weigh them down and third, it doesn’tRead More →
