Four Days in Boston

March 16, 2017

I had been wanting to visit Boston for years, and since my cousin Natasha - who has been at Boston University for the past year and a half - is graduating and leaving the city this May, I knew I didn't want to waste anymore time before visiting and having her as my guide. 
My sister and I flew up to meet her at the beginning of the month, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to show us around this beautiful city and introduce us to some of the best food in the area

A Month in the Life

March 8, 2017

What I'm most excited about this month: childhood stories come to life, spring trends, St. Patrick's Day and more.

I'm still finding it difficult to wrap my mind around the fact that it's already March. People always say that time goes by faster as you get older, and unfortunately, they aren't kidding. I mean, wasn't Halloween just yesterday?

Ever since I was a kid, I've always been a bit anxious about time - how fast it goes by, whether or not I'm making the most of it ... you get the picture. Growing up, my family always made sure we had something to look forward to every month, whether it was a vacation, a holiday, or even a new movie we couldn't wait to see. That helped my time-related anxiety a lot, and after going through a bit of a rut last year, I decided to revisit that strategy by getting some things on my calendar to get me excited for the time ahead. While we should always make it a point to live in the present, there's a ton of research proving that making plans and giving yourself things to look forward to makes you happier, and, in turn, healthier (basically, having a good time is literally what the doctor ordered).

That being said, I decided to create this series that shares some of the things I'm looking the most forward to every month. I hope it gives you some ideas and that you feel welcome to share the things you're most excited about, too!
