Swell Ice Cream Review

A few weekends ago, Jon and I went to Trader Joe’s to stock up on our favorites and wander through the aisles to see what’s new. We saw this Swell ice cream for only $1.99 a pint – that’s a major steal in Manhattan!! We couldn’t find any reviews online and are a little skeptical…

NYC Spring & Summer Bucket List

Hamilton on Broadway!

Ever since Jon and I have been dating, I’ve been DYING to see Hamilton on Broadway! I would jokingly ask him if we were going to see Hamilton every time I would visit. It’s one of the most famous shows on Broadway and the hardest one to get tickets to. This Christmas Jon surprised me…

The Natural History Museum – NYC

The weather has been pretty chilly in NYC lately, so Jon and I have been all about checking out new museums, restaurants, and coffee shops.

NYC 9 Month Update

Hi friends! Can you believe I’ve been living in NYC for 9 months already because I can’t!! It feels like I just got here. I genuinely meant for this to be a recurring post, but I realized that I haven’t posted an update since my 2 month update here. It’s definitely been the craziest 9…

This past weekend we celebrated National Margarita Day with some of our friends. We were a day late, but we didn’t care. We went to El Vez in the Financial District and had such a great time and meal. I started the night off with a Classic El Vez margarita and Jon got the Frozen…
