I’d be lying if I didn’t say I had a constant case of wanderlust. Then again, I think just about everyone would be lying if they said they didn’t.
After years of putting off my trip because I didn’t want to take the time off work, I finally decided to take my biggest vacation in a long time: Taglit.

Few times in my life have I read a book and been moved. I can count them all on one hand: My Sister’s Keeper, The Power of Now, The Art of Fielding, and, now, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar.

Recently Dulce from the blog A Juxtaposed Mind nominated me for the how well do you know me tag. This is a little different from my typical posts, but I thought it would be a fun way to share a little bit more about myself. For the challenge she gave me, along with 10 other bloggers, 11 questions that we had to answer. In return we get to make up 11 new questions for 11 bloggers of our choice.
Let’s get started!

There’s something extra fun about going out for a date with your significant other in the summer. The gorgeous sunshine, not needing to carry around a bulky coat, being able to sit outside on a patio—what’s not to love? But going out all the time can start to break the bank if you’re not careful.
Luckily, there are so many great ways in Chicago to go out and have a romantic date without having to spend a fortune. Continue reading “Cheap Summer Date Ideas”
The other week I was in Vegas for a work conference. First off, let me tell you that traveling for a work conference is one of the most exhausting things I have ever done. From the hours of networking to the long days in high heels, I’ll probably be recovering for a week. And it didn’t help that I was there during a heat wave. I left the hotel no more than 3 times – twice to get in Ubers to dinner, and once at night to see the fountain at the Bellagio. Mind you it was 101 degrees out at 11:30pm.
But after my conference ended I wanted to stay in Vegas an extra day to treat myself to a show. After looking at some reviews and seeing what had tickets available, I opted for the Michael Jackson ONE show by Cirque du Soliel. Not only was I able to find a ticket, but I got myself a front row seat.

Ok, so it wasn’t my first time cycling, but it was my first time in years. And when I’d gone in the past it was at your run-of-the-mill gym that happened to offer cycling classes, not an actual cycling studio. So what happens when you take a girl who’s used to yoga and boxing and stick her on a state-of-the-art bike? Let’s just say my butt still hurts…

This past weekend I went on a tour of the dreamiest bed and breakfast I’ve ever been to. Okay, I know what you’re thinking and the answer is you’re right; I’ve never been to a B&B before, but I have to imagine this one is more heavenly than most.
