What I Got For Christmas 2014

My family usually celebrates Christmas Eve at two houses (my Dad's side & my Mom's side), but we decided this year to only stay at one house & it was nice to switch it up. For Christmas Day, we went to my aunt's house in New Jersey to celebrate with my cousins. I love all the gifts that I got this year! And with all the Christmas money I received, I can go buy the things that I wanted & more.

Dorm Room Tour | Freshman Year

After a month in college, I finally had the chance to put together a dorm room tour. Currently, I’m on the LIRR on my way home for the weekend. I’m lucky that I’m only an hour away from home so I can come home whenever I want.

The transition from high school to college has been great. Since first midterms are over, I can relax a little bit and enjoy my weekends. Other than typical college things like studying, doing homework, eating at dining halls, and hanging out with friends until 2 am, I haven’t had anything interesting to blog about so most of my posts will be scattered. Anyways, enjoy my dorm room tour!

Madison Square Eats

This Friday I took a trip to the city with my boyfriend to go exploring and check out Madison Square Eats. Mad. Sq. Eats is from September 5th to October 2nd so there's still a couple days left to check out the awesome food in the park!

Although it's officially autumn now, the weather was in the 70s so I decided to pair a sweater with a skirt and combat boots. With the warm weather in the afternoon and the chilly weather in the evening, it was the perfect outfit for walking around all day. This combination was something I could never see myself wearing, but stepping out of your usual style is always fun.

Vamos a Punta Cana

¡Hola! I arrived back in New York on Monday after a 5-day vacation in the Dominican Republic. There were around 50 of us at the Hard Rock Resort celebrating with the familys' newly-wed couple. Every summer my family plans a vacation and these past few years have been some of the best trips. I'm hoping that we can go to Hawaii next year for my parents' 20th wedding anniversary! Here's a little vlog of clips I recorded throughout the trip and read more to see the photos!

Exploring Nolita

A couple of weeks ago I saw Kelsey Montague's amazing artwork on Instagram. My mom works close to the area and walks by there every day. So we made a trip to the city for a girls day. First, we went to Dominique Ansel Bakery in SoHo and waited in line for cronuts. We weren't able to get them this time around. There were two people in front of us when they ran out! Then we went to get hair cuts in China Town. I cut off two inches of hair. I love that my hair is still long and it looks much healthier now. After that we went to Nolita to take photos and went shopping in SoHo.

A Tiffany Blue Wedding

Weddings have always been a big part of my family. I've been a bridesmaid once and a flower girl four times, but this wedding was especially memorable because it was my favorite aunt who got married. I was in Aruba with them last July when she got proposed and she pulled everything together in a little over a year. In two weeks after their honeymoon, we're going to Punta Cana to celebrate once again!

2-Year Anniversary | July 9, 2014

Wednesday was our 2-year anniversary and my boyfriend planned a great day for us. Our best dates are always in the city so it was no surprise that we would end up there. We had a picnic (halal) and went in a row boat in Central Park and watched the sunset at Top of the Rock. I'm so glad I remembered to use my olloclip because the fish-eye shots are so cool. Be sure to check out the vlog of our day and read more for a better look of the photos in the video!


As cliche as this is, prom was one of the best nights of my life. The event was at The Crescent Beach Club and overlooked the North Shore. In the future, I really want this place to be my wedding venue. The view of the beach was amazing, the food was great, the DJ was good, and everyone looked amazing! I didn't go to sleep until 6 a.m. the next morning, but I don't regret a thing. Read more to relive this night with me!

My Last Day of High School

I remember coming into this school 6 years ago as a little 7th grader and now I'm leaving as a senior (who could still totally pass as a 7th grader). High school wasn't always easy for me, but I excelled academically and I'm glad my hard work payed off. So thanks high school, for giving me some of the best memories of my life because despite all the times I said I hated it, I know I will truly miss it.

Father's Day Weekend

Although this weekend is my last weekend of high school, I spent it with family. On Saturday, I went to Pennsylvania for my cousin's 9th birthday party. And since today is Father's Day, my family went out to eat at The Cheesecake Factory and saw 22 Jump Street. The school year went by so fast. Tomorrow is my last day of high school which includes Senior Sunrise & the Senior Barbecue.

Mini Summer Haul

I've done a little bit of shopping this week since I only have 4 days of high school left and summer is quickly approaching. I have so much going on these next couple months: prom, graduation, orientation, my aunt's wedding, birthdays, John & I's 2 year anniversary, a tropical vacation, & more! Here's a look at my recent purchases.

Filipino Parade & Local Carnival

I look the LIRR to the city for the Filipino Parade with my boyfriend and his family. We didn't watch the parade because we were to busy eating halo-halo, melon, and fish balls while strolling around Madison Square Park. It was the perfect weather: warm in the sun and cool in the shade. When we got back to Long Island, John and I went on a double date with our friends. We rode the ferris wheel, ate deep fried oreos, and the guys attempted some carnival games. This was a great start to June!
