78 Days of Freedom

July 18, 2016

It's crazy to think that I'm on a 2 1/2 month adventure traveling through Colombia, Peru, Chile, and Argentina. It feels like it was yesterday when my boyfriend and I made the decision to stop making excuses and to start making plans toward our dream to travel. So here we are, three weeks into our travels and it's been an incredible journey meeting new people from around the world, (re)learning Spanish, and exploring different countries and cities in South America.

Grand Velas Riviera Maya

April 6, 2016

After a night in Tulum, we drove up to Riviera Maya where we stayed at the Grand Velas, one of the luxury all-inclusive resorts in the Mexican Caribbean. They have several locations so if you ever have the chance to do so, I definitely recommend the stay!

32 Hours in Tulum

March 9, 2016

Back at it, again...with Mexico! Tulum has been on my travel wishlist for a while now, so I was thrilled that we made a stop before heading to Riviera Maya. Even though we only stayed for one night, I fell in love with Tulum and its young, bohemian, yogi vibe and energy throughout town.

Tulum, MX: Hartwood

Hands-down one of the best meals I've ever had in Mexico and a must-stop in Tulum. Hartwood is famous in Tulum and beyond - and for a great reason. From the amazing food and its gorgeous atmosphere, it's just one of those spots where you immediately want to go back to dine again the next day. The chef-co-owner Eric Werner is from Brooklyn who formerly cooked at Peasant in New York City before making the move to Tulum... & we're all so glad he did!

The Golden Year

October 16, 2015

This year, I turned 27 on the 27th - a golden birthday that I was really excited to celebrate! I'll admit that I'm a little obsessive when it comes to birthdays, whether it's for myself, family or friends...I believe that the whole month should be a celebration. You'd think since I'm now approaching my "late 20s," the excitement would die out but I was actually happy to become one year older, wiser, and braver. Birthdays have always been a great time to reflect on the year, and this year was no different for me.

Puerto Vallarta Getaway

October 8, 2015

Being that Cabo San Lucas was one of our first destinations that we visited together, I surprised my boyfriend with an anniversary beach getaway to Puerto Vallarta - back to Mexico where it all began!


June 6, 2015

Hawaii truly is a magical place. My family and I all headed to Maui and Oahu for a week - our first time visiting the gorgeous islands! Here's a little bit of the beach and sunshine from Hawaii through some photos...
