Trip to Los Angeles

I lived in Los Angeles for about 11 years and I rarely visited the beach. Now, that I live in Las Vegas, I began to realize how much I’ve missed. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I now appreciate Las Vegas for what it is, but if you gave me a choice between the ocean…

Blog Birthday + Giveaway!

This blog was actually made in memory of my best friend Julien who passed away last year. Unable to cope with my stress and depression, I created this platform to release some creativity. She’s always pushed me to “foster my interests”, and I felt that keeping up with this blog is a way for me…

5 Tips to Aging Gracefully

My mom is one of those people who could pass as my older sister if she wanted to. Her skin is close to immaculate which brings me to the hope that someday, I’ll be just like her! I’ll definitely be looking like a twenty-year-old in my 50s which is something I cannot complain about. While…

Las Vegas’ Hidden Natural Wonder: Valley of Fire State Park

Valley of Fire State Park is nothing like the bustling life of Las Vegas as it stays true to its nature. On the day of my visit, tourism was scarce. One may conclude that life ceases to exist there as harsh temperatures take over the entire valley. Still, my partner and I ventured off to the…

Mini Greenhouse Cactus

To be honest, I’m surprised that my dogs are still alive to this day. Since I was in high school, no matter how hard I tried, my pet hamsters have never survived to old age. Alongside that, I’ve had my share of plants that didn’t last long either. But these are cacti; they can’t be…

Scream for Ice Cream

Okay, I hear all your cries about the weather, but once your city exceeds 115 degrees Fahrenheit, you can start complaining. For my international readers, that would be 46 degrees Celsius.

Dinner at Shake Shack

Shake Shack is becoming one of those American staples that you have to experience when you’re in the country. It started in New York in 2004, and it quickly expanded with franchises popping up in the West Coast. Las Vegas is one of the lucky cities to open up in the area as tourists such…

Harpers Ferry National Historical Park

I think I left my heart in Virginia because I continue to think about it even though two months has passed since my last visit. From the interlocking foliage to the beautiful small towns are just what a city girl needs to consider a relocation! While Los Angeles and Las Vegas has been my home…

Affordable Things To Do In Las Vegas

If there’s a city deserving of both love and hate, it is Las Vegas. Look past the glittering lights, and you’ll see a riveting reality of its flamboyance. Gambling, gluttony, sex, and alcohol are not the only subjects that highlight this city. In a local’s perspective– it is home. Tourism heavily affects our economy as…
