When the year began, I knew that I wanted to travel more but I had not idea we’d start so soon. In February, we took our first trip; we packed up and headed to New York! While, I realize this was nearly two months ago, I still wanted to share my experience with you. Especially because I know that as the weather warms up NYC is a destination that many people consider.
I have wanted to visit New York for as long as I can remember. And I’ve had a list of things to do; the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, etc. I honestly didn’t have many expectations, but part of me thought it would be like in the movies.
Interestingly enough, New York reminded me a lot of Europe, from the weather to the architecture. Yet it was such a unique city and like no other I have visited before. We spent four days there as a family and though the weather wasn’t too friendly we had fun each day. Keep scrolling to see what we did in NYC and see if you could add these to your itinerary.
Day One: Times Square + Empire State Building
Our first stop was Time Square because it is a must while in New York. Also, because our hotel was nearby. And being there, among so many tourist who traveled as far as we did to see this magical city gave us all kinds of feels. We saw all the screens in awe and got to witness how others searched for the perfect shot to take back home as a memory and souvenir.
Our second stop on this first day was the Empire State Building, another icon and must see while in NYC. What I loved most at the ESB was the views from the viewing deck. We made it just after nightfall, but it was a beautiful sight nonetheless.
It’s no secret that I straighten my hair. I do it, not because I don’t love my curls, but because it is easier. Believe or not it is easier for me to deal with my hair straight, than to deal with my curls. And it probably has a lot to do with the fact that I haven’t found a product that my curls love! My straight hair, however, is loving my new hair tools by Anjou!
Hi there! As you may know I’m off to vacation in Mexico soon and I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the items I consider essentials. As these may be helpful to you, if you have any travel plans this Spring or Summer. I have six categories below and a few of my favorite items in each. Keep scrolling and take a peek. 😉
I am always looking for flattering pieces and when it comes to swimwear, high waisted styles are my go-to. One pieces can also be flattering, so I have link both styles and some bikinis as well.
A good pair of earrings can be the final touch to a look. I have found some really fun ones for you to add to your list. Ps. they are all really versatile too – you’re welcome.

Wipes! I feel that this is an essential in any home, and I mean any home – with and without little ones. While, as a mom having wipes around my home comes with the territory, I have to admit that I am stoked to have Kleenex Wet Wipes as an option now. Why? Because I don’t have to share with the girls anymore – Woohoo!
Also because of the fact that Kleenex Wet Wipes don’t have the harsh chemicals that other wipes carry! Which means that they’re safe to use on my face. And they are also thick and soft enough to use on my hands.
It has been very easy to incorporate Kleenex Wet Wipes into my lifestyle because they are conveniently small and fit right into my bag. Which is perfect, since I am always On The Go! I also keep a pack in my car because that’s where lots of messes happen.
I often do my make up in the car and let me tell you that it’s not an easy job! Seriously, am I the only one that find applying lipstick on in front of a car’s mirror a bit challenging? Luckily, I can correct any make up mishaps with my Kleenex Wet Wipes. And I love knowing that my skin is not exposed to harsh chemicals anymore.
It’s Tasty Tuesday but also Taco Tuesday, so sharing a Shrimp Tacos recipe seemed appropriate. It had been a while since I had last attempted to make shrimp tacos. And this is by far my most favorite Shrimp Tacos recipe. The true star of today’s recipe is Kroger’s Peppery Sweet Corn Salsa. When I saw it on the shelf, it sounded too delicious to not take home with me. Though, I had not idea what I would do with it, I added it to my cart. While planning meals, I saw it in my pantry and thought it would add the perfect kick to the shrimp tacos I was planning to make.
I wasn’t wrong! This salsa added so much flavor to the shrimp, my husband who is the one from Mexican descent in our home loved them. And he can be as picky as my littles when it comes to food. But if he liked them, I thought the recipe was worth of sharing. I’ll get to the recipe now, I’m sure you’re sitting on the edge of your seat and ready to learn how to make this.
