New Year

2017-new-years-resolutions

Happy New Year, everyone! ❤

The year 2016 had very defining moments that allowed me to learn more about myself and the world I live in. My goals were to read more books from different genres, continue writing, and figure out my way in the kitchen. Among the chaos and tranquility in 2016, I managed to meet these goals and decide on a single resolution for the new year.

My resolution and motto for 2017 is “MAKE IT HAPPEN”.

I hope to be more productive this year and work towards improving this here blog. Procrastination is a habit we tend to mingle with, as it tends to root from self-doubt, but the motto “Make It Happen” is an empowering reminder of what to do in those situations. From here on out, Alive & Living posts will go live on Tuesdays each week. This year I am also including fashion related content and introducing my monthly picks of top bloggers. Stay tuned!

What are your 2017 New Year’s resolutions?

A Day In Los Angeles – August 2016

Hello everyone! Happy Friday ❤

I spent a lovely day in Los Angeles, California, last weekend and attended the Eight Annual Tanabata Festival. I enjoyed delicious food at this festival, visited the Japanese American National Museum, and strolled through the shops in Little Tokyo. The museum held an incredible exhibit on the artistry of the (stop-motion) film Kubo and the Two Strings, which is now in theaters, so I decided to share my day with you.

A Week In Rome – June 2016

Hello everyone! Happy Friday ❤

As many of you may all ready know, I have a case of extreme wanderlust. I believe traveling to other parts of the world has many benefits and allows you to learn more about yourself (as well as others). So, if you have a chance to visit a place you have never been to before go for it.

Last week, I spent some time in Rome and was left speechless by the incredible landmarks. I had great Italian food, met genuine people, and overall had a lovely experience in a city with rich history. A handful of my favorite places I visited are below and I highly recommend visiting them yourself one day.
