2017 Highlights

Miami, Florida

It's funny how fast time flies by, don't you think? I went on so many amazing trips, experienced so many new things, and met so many awesome people this past year. I learned from all my new experiences and became a better, more improved me. I've always believed it is important to take something from every experience, good or bad. That is how we grow...

This year I was able to go to Hawaii twice in which I discovered both the Byodo Temple and Queen's Bath I never knew existed, watch the Miami Open thanks to Moet, and relax on the most beautiful yacht I've ever seen.

This year was also the first year my sister Jasmine and I became aware of the joy of cherry blossoms in their peak. We are now so excited for next year :) We also got to fly to Singapore for the first time on exquisite business class, thanks to Singapore Air.

In Bali, the one place we did not expect, we discovered the challenges of being efficient! Despite ridiculous amounts of traffic and transportation difficulties, we were still able to enjoy the rice fields, waterfalls, dog shelters, spa and delicious organic restaurants.

This year was the first time I got to see Turks and Caicos, and we were so lucky to experience the raw perfection before the hurricanes this summer. I was able to swim in the warmest ocean water and feel the softest sand. I witnessed some of the most incredible sunsets of my life and visited the most beautiful resort. 

2017 was also a year of leaf chasing, and we certainly learned how hard that could be as well! Discovering Aspen, New England and all the quaintness along the way was quite the experience we did not expect, but would not have it any other way. Portland as usual was a favorite, even after everything, it still feels like a hidden gem.

New York, will always be New York. Every time is more incredible than the last and it makes me want to go back and find, discover and experience more, more, more.

I'm looking forward to this new year and the possibilities it can bring. I know that every day I influence my own future and I will strive to do that even better than last year. I believe in making your own opportunities, and using them. Two big focuses I want to work on this year are developing my presence on YouTube. and putting more effort into the health of my body/mind and diet. I have a feeling I will be making some big decisions this year, but who really knows? All I can really say is, I'm ready for 2018, bring it on!
