NYC, I love you.

So I recently (and impulsively) travelled to NYC in order to avoid all of my problems. Sound familiar? Good. This is what I normally do when something crazy occurs in my life and disturbs my routine…such as my college graduation that happened May 2019.

Salvation Mountain.

So a while back this year I visited Salvation Mountain, and if you don’t know what that is, that’s totally okay since not many have heard of this work of art. It was a very wacky, very fun, and very inspirational experience to visit this mountain that was essentially located in the middle of nowhere. Check out the pics and video in this post to see more!

San Diego Adventures

So March was a very hectic, exciting month for me! I feel like every weekend I was doing something crazy. For example, during my Spring Break, instead of sleeping and doing nothing like I usually do, I ended up spending a few days in Phoenix and then attended the ABSEL Conference in San Diego. I actually presented two of my research papers that were accepted to be published, and learned a lot about myself in the process.

Midterms Made Me Jump Out of a Plane

Hello everyone! Since it’s midterm season, I just wanted to reminisce on the fact that last year, during the same time of the year, I threw myself out of a plane due to the copious amount of stress I was feeling.

Face Oils- Are they even worth it?

Hello again everyone! This blog post is dedicated to more skincare routine things-because that is what I keep getting asked about by my friends and readers. Specifically, I am going to tell you exactly what I use in terms of face oils, how I use them, and what I use to apply them to my face.

San Francisco Adventures

During the last month of 2018, I was lucky enough to visit SF with my brother and my boyfriend. I had been just once before, but this trip was easily my favorite. We visited Chinatown, the Painted Ladies, Pier 39, the famous Golden Gate Bridge, Mr. Holmes Bakery, and even the Mrs. Doubtfire house! Needless to say, there were plenty of photo opportunities, and I even got to see an old friend , Yonni, while we were there!

My Favorite Hikes in AZ

At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a lover of nature. I think this has always been an evident quality of mine, but I actually have to thank my good friend Mia Pique for really bringing out this part of me back in 2015. She forced me to join hiking club my freshman year of college, and after my first adventure with that club, I can truly say my love for hiking was born. Thus, I have decided to make this blog post with my absolute favorite hikes in Arizona. Feel free to leave comments of your favorite as well!

If you’ve read my blog before, or follow me on Instagram, you know that I love to spend any of my remaining dollars on aesthetically-pleasing food or coffee places. Why do I do this? As a business major, the one thing I truly learned in college is how much passion, hard-work, and creativity goes into opening your own business. Thus, if I’m going to spend any money and add to the consumerism mania happening in America, I’m going to drop my money on a small business or one that tries to differentiate themselves in all the best, possible ways. Teaspressa definitely qualifies as one such business.

Winter Wonderland at NAU

It’s finally winter ! My university’s campus looks incredible covered in white, and I genuinely feel like I live in a snow globe every time there’s a new snowfall. I couldn’t be more excited to see the massive amounts of beautiful snow and get to enjoy my favorite season once again. Also, my favorite clothes reside in my winter wardrobe, so I’m pretty excited to wear those again! Scroll below to see some gorgeous shots of NAU from this past week.

New York State of Mind

nyc 64

A little over a month ago I visited NYC for the first time. I cannot explain to you all what a dream come true the whole experience was for me. Not only did NYC match everything I ever saw in some of my favorite movies, but the people and architecture were ten times better in person. For as long as I can remember I dreamed of walking around in Brooklyn, visiting the places where those iconic Gossip Girl scenes were filmed, and pretending like I owned an apartment in the heart of Manhattan. Overall, after just this one time visiting, it’s pretty much a given that I will live there one day.
