Tokyo's Owl Cafe - Fukuro no mise

*If you like this post, it is now available on iTunes as a self-guided walking tour! Click here to download it. I had heard of cat cafes, but it wasn’t until this weekend that I was introduced to an owl “cafe.” My friend, Shannon, had sent me a Buzzfeed article with a list of wacky things to try in Tokyo. At the top of the list was visiting Fukuro no Mise – an owl cafe. It had awesome reviews on… Read more »

NEW Zoo

By the time you all are reading this post, I will be on my way to Tokyo. That is really crazy to think! I’m not going to lie, either…the nerves are really starting to set in! Haha. It’s also starting to set in that I will really miss being so close to family and friends. My husband and I had gotten quite used to seeing those we love by just hopping in the car and driving to see them. It… Read more »

We're moving!

Our visas are in hand, the flights are booked and our bags are (almost) packed! We are all set to fly out on Wednesday! I am in absolute disbelief that this is finally happening. We have been waiting for more than 5 months to move internationally, but the visa process has been a bit slow. Actually, that’s an understatement. We thought we would be moving back in January! And we’ve been trying for more than 3 years now to be… Read more »

Carousel Bar & Lounge - NOLA

  New Orleans is known for many things, but one of the first things that always comes to mind is how wonderful the food and drinks are. Anytime we asked for a recommendation for a bar or restaurant in New Orleans, the answer was always, “Well, there isn’t a bad place to eat or drink here!” With that being said, there were several spots that really stood out above the rest for us, and offered some truly unique experiences! 1.)… Read more »

Fatehpur Sikri

India is a country full of beauty and history, that belongs on everyone’s bucket list. My time in India was nothing short of an adventure. But with the insistent honking of horns from the organized chaos that is traffic to the vibrant splashes of color from intricately draped saris to the almost overwhelming smells of spicy food… it will undoubtedly cause some culture shock for those who have never visited this bright and bustling country…but I’m here to offer some… Read more »

Swans

For one week every spring, my tiny hometown becomes a pitstop for flocks and flocks of majestic swans. Entire fields will be filled with these beautiful creatures for just a few fleeting days. I was beyond excited to see while I was driving today, that they are beginning to make their return. I had not been home at the same time as the swans for..oooh.. about 10 years. And at that time, I did not have a camera, or even… Read more »

Emma recreation in Minneapolis

*If you like this post, it is now available on iTunes as a self-guided walking tour! Click here to download it. I am a huge fan of Jane Austen. Okay, that is a bit of an understatement… I have been reading and rereading her books ever since I was 13. I have read all of her major novels and am currently working on reading some of her lesser known/unfinished works. (I’m reading The Watsons right now.) Her novels have always… Read more »

Houdini's Museum Appleton, WI

Fun fact: Harry Houdini and I grew up in the same area! Houdini moved to Appleton, Wisconsin from Budapest, Hungary when he was 4 years old. However, he told his audience that he was born in Appleton, Wisconsin. Because of Houdini’s time in Appleton, we have a museum dedicated to his awesome magic tricks/escapes! It’s a really interactive museum called “History Museum at the Castle.” My husband and I went with my husband’s little brother to check out the museum… Read more »

While technically I don’t live in NYC, I live in Princeton, New Jersey…I am really… Read more »

Lilac Cove Boutique

My goal for this weekend was to experience something in NYC that I couldn’t experience anywhere else. With only one weekend left in the area, my husband and I have been doing our best to get all of our bucket list items checked off in the city…because who knows when we’ll be back. For this goal, comfort was key in the wardrobe department…as this was going to involve some long days and tons of walking! My dress is from Lilac… Read more »

If you happen to be a fan of Star Wars – oh boy, do I have an awesome exhibit to tell you about! “Star Wars and the Power of Costume” just opened up in the Discovery building in Times Square NYC, and it seriously is the stuff that Star Wars fans’ dreams are made of. I happened to be on 44th St. for a matinee showing of Phantom of the Opera (click here for more on that), when just across… Read more »

Mt. Tammany waterfall

This past weekend my husband and I decided to be a little more adventurous in our weekend activities and try out mountain hiking! With this fall being so mild and warm, we figured we should get out and enjoy it, instead of running into the city for the weekend. After talking to some local friends and reading a few hiking blogs, we decided on Mt. Tammany in the Poconos Mountains for our first ever mountain hike. (I just realized after… Read more »

Green Arrow Costume

My costume: My husband’s costume:   “You have failed this city!” I’m not entirely sure how many times we said that during the day, but it certainly never got old! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Green Arrow, that’s something he always says to the bad guys before he takes them out. And as you can see, I once again spent Halloween pretending to be a man, haha. My husband was kind enough to let me be Green… Read more »

Downtown Dallas

*If you like this post, it is now available on iTunes as a self-guided walking tour! Click here to download it. My adventure in Dallas didn’t exactly go according to plan. I intended to have a few days to wander and explore the city at my leisure. However, due to a monsoon that overtook Dallas while I was there (seriously, they had flooding and record rainfall), and a flu bug that landed me in my hotel room for a whole… Read more »

Tasty Tie Tuesday

This is one of the most exciting posts I have personally had the pleasure of writing. I have had the opportunityย to work with many wonderful, new clothing companies, but this is the first time I have had the chanceย to introduce you all to Pullman Hotels โ€“ a hotel chain you may have not previously heard of! As many of you already know, my husband and I live a very nomadic lifestyle. We do not actually own or rent a home,… Read more »

Shark cage diving

“Weren’t you scared?!” That is always the first question everyone asks when we tell them about our shark cage diving experience in Cape Cod. While being in the same waters as sharks should be terrifying, our shark cage diving adventure wasn’t the stuff nightmares are made of…it was actually a lot of fun. We saw one mako shark while we were still on the boat, and I think being in the water for that would have been rather frightening, as… Read more »

My first New York Fashion Week show is in the books! I had the opportunity to see the Angel Sanchez spring/summer 2016 collection, and it was absolutely amazing. I’m not even going to try and play it cool – I was in heaven and so excited I was able to get to see NYFW in person! (I’ll be on cloud nine for a while if you need me.) I’ll do my best to try and talk designers and fashion with… Read more »

Whale Watching Cape Cod

Whale watching in Cape Cod is easily one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life. The moment we made it to the whales’ feeding ground it was nonstop action. From the baby whales doing full breach after full breach, to the adults “waving” their fins and slapping their tails, there was hardly a moment where the whales were not visible. And sorry it took me so long to get this post together! But for the entire 2 hours… Read more »

Fenway

Boston is my new favorite city. I know I said that when I visited Philly – but seriously Boston is my favorite, without a doubt. I want to pack up and move there immediately! My husband and I were only there for a couple days and sorry, I wasn’t a very good blogger while I was there. This post will not do Boston nearly the justice it deserves. I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I should’ve, or keep… Read more »

The amount of things to see and do (and eat!) in Rome seems to be never ending. My husband and I spent two weeks wandering the streets of Rome last spring, and I feel as though we only saw a fraction of what Rome had to offer. I’ve covered the more famous tours and sights in previous posts. In this post I will take a final look at some of the smaller, quirkier tours we took and some of my… Read more »

The North Woods

This weekend I ventured to a place where I had no access to social media, no cell phone reception and no traffic – it was heavenly. It was just my family, the puppies and my husband and I all spending a lovely weekend in The North Woods. I’m now back in Jersey where we have lots of traffic, cell phone reception and access to social media. So, to relive my little getaway from civilization I decided to share my photos… Read more »
