    Asheville, North Carolina Travel Guide

    I’m excited to work with our sponsor, Hyundai USA, to share this travel guide of Asheville, North Carolina with you!

    Fairchild Mango Festival: So Many Mangos

    There’s that one thing that gets us through the intense summer heat here in Miami, and I’m not talking about the beach. Yup, when dry air is nowhere to be found, and every time you step outside feels like you’re stepping into a giant sauna, it can only mean one thing: mango season. Ah yes, when the tropical climate becomes less like ...

    Enjoy the Zen of Watercolor Classes at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

    For the Best Pancakes in Miami, Make Reservations at Eating House

Maybe it’s the fact that I get to drink my first cup of coffee; or maybe it’s that most breakfast foods are carbs. Give me all your breads, pastries, pancakes, and waffles! As a lover of carbs, ...

    This Weekend, Discover if a 3D Movie Can Be Art

    Can you think of a time when you saw a movie that changed the way you watch movies?  When I think about this question, I sometimes think about 1999. Two friends and I went to check out the strange, newly-released, action film called “the Matrix”.   I remember the three of us walking out of the theater and into the (now demolished) Riverwalk ...

    It’s Sunday and Mother’s Day. A happy day for most people, but a tough day for me. I miss my mom the most on special days and Mother’s Day. So I decided to start off the day with some self care by taking a yoga class at Fairchild Botanical Garden. I didn’t realize what a magical experience I signed myself up for. ...
