Champagne Wishes

In my opinion, New Year’s Eve is probably the most overrated holiday, but I did manage to make this the best New Year’s Eve celebration ever, with a vintage bottle of Champagne and two friends I would keep hostage if they didn’t have bills to pay. We ate, we drank, we laughed and shared the […]

Central Park

Saturday proved to be the perfect day for a day in the park, but not just any park, Central Park. I had held it off long enough and with a out of town visit from one of my favorite blogger’s and best friends, Beth, it was time to seize the day. I try to make […]

One Year Later

I have officially survived one year as a NYC resident. I know which trains get me where, what time the tunnels have traffic you could cry over (basically all the time) and where to find the best bagels in all the boroughs. I know which direction the avenues flow and have “go to” Starbucks and […]

Alice’s Tea Cup

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there” – Cheshire Cat (Alice in Wonderland) An appropriate quote for a appropriate adventure. I never really know where my blog will lead me, trying to hinder on the romaticism of spontaneity. My brother and I decided on Mexican for a Sunday […]

Madame Tussauds

I may have seen a few celebrities on the streets of New York City since my move here, but the best place to run into stars of all generes and ample selfie opportunities is only one place, Madam Tussauds. My brother and I snagged a deal on Groupon and claimed admission tickets for about $12 […]

The City to Save Christmas

There was a point around the end of November, when I was feeling a bit like the Grinch. Solely because I once again would have to go through the routine of figuring out a list of gifts to disperse at the end of the upcoming month, a routine that has been haunting me for years […]
