Getting Glammed For New York Fashion Week

The six degrees of separation never ceases to amaze me. The theory was actually proposed by a Hungarian writer (how fitting!!) Frigyes Karinthy in 1929. It basically says that anyone on the planet can be connected to another person on the planet through a chain…

Prague, Czech Republic Day #2

It had never occurred to me that zoos in different parts of the world would hold varying animals. In the United States I had been to zoos in New York and Washington D.C. and the animals they housed did not differ too much. Only when…

Be The Best Version of You #liveLIVELY

These past few months I’ve become way more active and appreciative of the wonderful natural activities (and food!) that the world has to offer. Even if it is just going for a quick walk in the park, working out in my my apartment or taking…

Barcelona, Spain Day #3

It was not until my trip to Barcelona that I realized the incredible beauty and influence that Antoni Gaudi brought to the city. It is because of him that Barcelona is more than just a lovely Spanish beach town, his contributions to the city – La…

Paris, France Day #4

February 14th seems ages ago now… but that just goes to show that I have been having so much fun that I’ve become about a month behind on my travel posts… *yikes*. Tis the season for final papers and coursework that’s worth 60% of my…

Paris, France Day #3

Paris, France Day #3

Waking up a bit later than usual, Ben and I were both still fighting off some sort of bug, (I guess that’s the price you pay to travel through airports so frequently) Ben and I kicked off our third day in Paris with, you guessed it,…

Paris, France Day #1

Paris, France Day #1

Traveling to Paris has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Great food, accents, museums and moustaches – the City of Light and Love always seemed like an incredible place to visit. I took French in school for 5 years,…
