My Virgin Hair Lost its Virginity

This past summer, for some odd reason, highlights in my hair have been on my mind. But i've been putting it off because when it comes to my physical appearance, i stick to what i know. I don't like going outside of my comfort zone and "experimenting" But with sister #1's urging and her telling me, "YOURE YOUNG! THIS IS WHEN YOU SHOULD DO IT!" I finally decided that I would try something new.

Tattin It Up??

So now that i've found a job, I can proudly cross off "Find job" in my "Life Goal To-do List". Which means I can hopefully move onto goal #2: Get a tattoo.

Taking a Risk and Refusing to Settle

This past May I graduated with my masters degree. With an additional $60K+ in debt, I finally finished my education (sorry mom and dad, i'm NOT getting my phd) and was ready to make me some money, conquer the world, and live that "instagram" life of being a foodie, buying chic clothes, and having a martha stewart-esq apartment. But alas, reality hit and I realized I had no job to do any of that...including even buying a latte. That's real rock bottom. =(

My First Massage Experience- Deep Tissue

A couple of days ago, before my mom left for back home, my sister  decided she would treat me and our mom out to some relaxin massage time. Ive never gotten a professional massage, but my friends have talked about how relaxing it is and my sister raved about how awesome it feels afterwards... and i've gotten some from friends and it felt good! So okay. fine. convinced. lets go.

The spa wasn't a fancy place but the price was very very good for an hour long deep tissue massage and came highly recommended personally and on yelp ($35). There were several different choices but I decided to go for the whole body + 10 minutes of hot stone treatment. Here's what I learned about massages

Pretending to be Cultured at the Guggenheim

My mom loves art museums, mainly because she studied art and is an artist herself! And since she's visiting NY where a plethora of art exhibits exist, we decided to take her to one! Although she really likes modern art, she'd already been to MoMA on one of her previous NY visits, and so we decided to take her to the guggenheim. In her words, "oh! that museum! i saw it in my art books!" Done.

NYC Restaurant Week- Review of DB Bistro Moderne

Because my mom is visiting, sister #1 decided to treat us out to lunch during NYC 's restaurant week! Seriously, it's so awesome having a sister that works (sister #2, if you're reading this, hurry and make some of that doctor money!) Anyways, after a week of deciding where the best place to go to was, we settled on "db bistro moderne", french cuisine! oui,oui! So here goes my very first restaurant review!

Meeting Mr. Batman

My mom arrived last saturday, which means that I'm kicked out of the room for the time being and crashing on the couch. And since i'm not a very heavy sleeper, yesterday morning, at 4 am, i woke up to a sudden clicking sound in the backroom....

Confession time: i have a fear of sounds in the dark. And so naturally, I went into full alert mode and the first thing that came to mind was, "oh sh*t there's a burglar in the house."... not gonna lie, I went through some pretty awful scenarios (i need to stop watching criminal minds). But then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw something black flutter by....

Car Emergency Tools You Should Always Carry

Yesterday, sister #1, who is preggers, was stuck in a flash flood when her car started flooding and she couldn't get out. Talk about scary...Her car ended up flooding all the way past her hip! And then, during the winter, my mom was stuck in her car for almost 8 hours when atlanta became paralyzed due to a sprinkle of snow and ice.  And so I decided to research and make a list of items everyone should have in their car for weather related emergencies!

Seche Vite Review

One of the things my oldest sister and I like to do, is to paint our nails. Yes, it sounds super girly, but it's a great, cheap, bonding activity, especially given that she and I are almost 8 years apart. In fact, she was the one who took me for the very first time to get my nails done... which was in college! Yep, I never got my nails done in high school for prom or for homecoming. I guess I couldn't justify what seemed like so much, back then, especially because my nails grow super fast and they always, always chip.
