My Morning Routine

I was never a morning person growing up. Just ask my parents. They’d have to turn on all my lights, pull off my blankets, and sing obnoxiously for me to even contemplate getting out of bed. These days I’m a loud and proud early riser (and most of my friends think I’m insane). It took some work… Continue reading My Morning Routine

My Favorite NYC Coffee Shops

Cafe One: If I had to pick my favorite on-the-go place in my neighborhood, this would be it. I’m obsessed with their vanilla chai.

It’s right next to City College, so avoid the standard student rush… Continue reading My Favorite NYC Coffee Shops

Living paycheck… Continue reading Dolla, Dolla Bills, Y’all

101 Things: NYC

New York City is one of the most visited cities in the world. I’ve had friends and family come to visit, and inevitably they all ask the same questions: What should we do? Where should we eat? Now that spring is upon us (despite the snow on Friday!), and people are getting ready to plan… Continue reading 101 Things: NYC

Roosevelt Island

Roosevelt Island has always been at the top of my New York City bucket list, yet somehow it’s taken me three years to actually visit. Don’t ask why it’s taken so long, because I don’t have a good answer other than I’m lazy and rarely leave Manhattan. But this past Friday was particularly overcast and… Continue reading Roosevelt Island
