A Perfect Day: West Village

We can all agree that most of New York City is very grand. The city is filled with skyscrapers and large avenues but the West Village is different. It’s one of the charming areas of NYC that makes you feel like you’re in Europe and not in the states.

My Favorite NYC Coffee Shops By Neighborhood

Raise your hand if you love coffee!? ( It’s not like I can see you do that but just go along with it! haha) My coffee addiction has nothing to do with caffeine but more to do with taste. I actually enjoy drinking it and choose to be very picky about what coffee brands I choose to drink from.

A Perfect Day: Tribeca

It’s not hard to fall in love with this neighborhood. As you move away from Canal and keep walking south then west, you’ll almost wonder how such a quiet area can exist right by the chaos that is Chinatown.

A Perfect Day: Upper East Side

In the next few weeks, I’ll be rolling out day guides for a few of my favorite neighborhoods in New York City. These guides are for those traveling to NYC for the first time or for those who live here and want to explore more of where they live!

Sometimes we need a little break but are either too lazy to plan a vacation or don’t have enough days for a long trip! If you live in Manhattan or are an outer towner and want to visit a different area other than NYC, then you must go upstate!

Insider Travel Intel: Louvre Museum In Abu Dhabi

The United Arab Emirates literally wants it all. Don’t you agree? Now they even have the Louvre – which would have been great to see 2 years ago when I traveled there. I guess now I have a reason to go back! 🙂

Weekend Escape: Montreal

This year Thomas and I decided to celebrate New Year’s in a much more colder place than last year ( we went to Cuba last year!). We drove up to Montreal with my cousin and her boyfriend for 3 nights to welcome the year in a new place that wasn’t too far from NYC.

A One Of A Kind French Cheese Shop In Soho

The desire to keep learning is something that has always been true to who I am. It reminds of why I majored in Cultural Anthropology in College ( also majored in Women Studies!) – because I’m curious about the way people live and what they eat etc. And today that hasn’t changed, the older I get the more I want to keep learning.
