Bucket List Item #23 – Sponsor a Child

I know it’s been months again since I’ve written, and then I come through with a bomb like sponsoring a child (go big or go home right?), but I promise you it’s at least worth the read. I hadn’t told many people about this, because it’s sort of a personal thing, but when I realized…

Bucket List Item #22: ADULTS ONLY Amusement Park

I can already see the eye rolls taking place, since clearly as a single, 20-something with no kids, it’s easy for me to say, right? I know, I know… but let me explain. This was a weird item to have on my bucket list, but it was something that I felt necessary because of the…

Bucket List Item #21: Miami… Where the Playas Play

I know it’s been awhile, but the last 5 months have been a whirlwind of changes – new job, living situation, friends, places to travel. Writing a blog has been nearly impossible, BUT I continue to get asked why I stopped, so here we are again! Also, I had to get permission because now, all…

Bucket List Item #20: Jamaica You Crazy

As many of you saw on my social media a few days ago, I traveled to the number one country on my bucket list – JAMAICA!!! It was not number one because of its resorts, but because of my obsession with Bob Marley, the Rastafarian culture, reggae music and the laid back, “yeh mon, no…

Bucket List Item #19: Pick a Dream, and Follow It

  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but that’s the flipside to actually being a “busy girl” with an active bucket list. But what I was doing for the last month was well worth the wait. I ACCEPTED A JOB AT ESPN! I assure you friends, the name is not why I’m excited, but instead…

Bucket List Item #18: See the Beauty in Ground Zero

With the 15th anniversary of 9/11 coming up this weekend, I thought it was appropriate to make everyone understand that despite how tragic that was for our country, NYC has done an amazing job honoring those involved in the most positive, beautiful way possible. Here is a timeline of how I have experienced the rebuild…

Bucket List Item #17: Alcohol and Creativity

For some of you, creativity comes naturally. Your favorite classes in high school were art, photography, music, culinary or fashion. When you make something – a gift basket, a puzzle or even just breakfast – you’re more about the presentation of it than you are what’s in it. For you, creativity comes effortlessly. For others,…

Bucket List Item #16: Join a Team

In light of wrapping up the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, where all of us bitterly watched sports that we once played and wish we still did, while these freaks of nature made our talent look like a joke, I am going to kindly remind you all that you can still compete! I’m sure we…

Bucket List Item #15: Go Behind The Scenes!

100% easier said than done, I get that. BUT, if it’s ever possible, do it. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to be backstage during a Barbra Streisand concert (also referred to *by me* as Barb). For those of you who are flipping over that, you’re probably 40+. No judgement, but the absolute truth…

Bucket List Item #14: Run for Fun

So to start this off as honest as possible, I despise running. And when I say despise, I mean I truly do not enjoy running and cringe every time I think about it. Then why do I tell you to “run for fun” you ask? Because I found the only way that I consider running…

Bucket List Item #13: Attend a Music Festival!

I think we can all agree that everyone loves music. If you don’t, I’m concerned for your well-being. But, some people love music more than others… and I happen to be one of those people. I like every genre of music, from every era, performed by artists from all age ranges and genders. In case…

Bucket List Item #12: Give Back

Since #12 is my favorite and what I like to consider “lucky” number (although every fortune cookie I’ve ever opened disagrees with me), I thought this bucket list item needed to be special. Anyone who has seen my pictures probably knows that I’m a big fan of volunteering, fundraising, etc. and have incorporated it into…
