    Engagement ring into the equation

    I’ve been reading a lot about this topic after I got engaged. I like yellow and rose gold but not as much as silver tones in jewelry. My fiancé choose very well! Admittedly, I’m a bit on the old fashioned side when mixing my metals. I have a variety of rose and yellow gold jewelry that I won’t toss or…

    Detox your scalp?!

    Speaking of holiday detox I want to share my “Winter scalp experience”… just like you read it. I spent 2 weeks in Sandusky, Ohio for Christmas and New Year’s, and weather was snowy and cute, but also very harsh most of the days. Like we all know that harsh cold can wreak havoc on your skin. Skin becomes dry and…

    Organizing Chaos

    So, 2017 is gone. Vacation is over, and I’m back to work. Let’s say my 2018 starts today. On a personal and professional level it’s been an interesting 2017 for me.

    72 Hours in Curacao

For those who love to travel like me, isn’t amazing when your job will occasionally require you to head to some fantastic places around the world in order to increase your productivity? In 2012 I used to work for a very well-known executive training company based in Santo Domingo as…

    Rules for Traveling with Friends

    Traveling on your own can mean lots of peacetime. But there’s something special about having someone by your side—whether it’s your best friend, your boyfriend, or your four-year-old nephew—to ask, “Are we there yet?!” I’ve done numerous trips ranging from a weekend to over a 15 days trip with friends. In my group I’m always the one who plans every…

    Eastern Mexico: Playa del Carmen

    Back to 2010 and finishing this last part of my first trip abroad to Eastern Mexico. Playa Del Carmen was my favorite part. Playa, as locals call it, exudes a more laid-back vibe than Cancun to the north. But make no mistake: Playa, is big-time touristy all the same. I highly recommend to have a more local experience here, forget…

    Fine Food Experience in Vegas

    An important requirement when traveling is to have at least one fine food experience… or 2, 3 why not! I thought New York, Montreal, Chicago, Port Clinton-Ohio, and New Hampshire were my Top 5 “Best Fine Food Experiences” But Vegas, and San Diego (That I’ll share later) surpassed all of them! I’m not a food critic but I consider myself a…

I want to share my experience because most people think Vegas is just a place…
