Favorite Coffee Recipe At The Moment


Just like most people, coffee is what starts my day. The smell of it, the first sip…everything about it just gets my day started on a positive note. Until I get that work email of course πŸ™ƒ. Lately, I’ve been wanting to spice up my coffee at home game, so that 1. I can save some money πŸ˜… and 2. So I don’t get sick of the same recipe every day.

Books I Read Last Month


OoOoOoOO. It’s been a minute since I’ve shared the books I’ve read and last month I blew through them. I needed a tech break and devoured several books in just a few short weeks. I shared a while ago the list of books I have read recently (Click here to read the blog post), and I’m back to do it again. Book opinions that no one asked for πŸ˜‚. 


Please note some of these books have a trigger warning (TW) and these are my opinions (IMO) some blurbs may contain spoilers (SPA).

Exploring Central Florida


About a month ago Mama and Papa Katz came down to Central Florida to help us with the house and of course for a mini vay-cay too. This was also a great time to explore Central Florida and knock off some "want to do" things on my Florida list.

I Was Interviewed by Orlando Voyager


This feels so surreal. I'm usually the one doing the interviewing–but this time I was the one being interviewed. Orlando Voyager reached out to do a Q&A with me about being a content creator and starting a vacation rental company in Orlando! I was so honored to be a part of this series, mostly because as I said, I'm not the one usually being interviewed.

3 Ways To Keep Your Dog Cool This Summer

I can't believe it's March and I'm already talking about summer. Truth be told, it's been in the high 80s most of the month down here in Central Florida so it's basically summer as far as I'm concerned. Which means my dog has shed his winter coat and it's time to play outside!

How I Stay Organized


I swear, organizing your day-to-day life used to be so much easier when you were in school and had an agenda. That’s just now adulthood works though. I can’t carry my overpriced Lily Pulitzer or Victoria's Secret’s PINK agenda anymore. I have to have access to my calendars and to-do list instantly.

Items On My Amazon Wishlist


Thanks to TikTok I am now always *adding to cart πŸ’ΈπŸ›’.* And since I don’t want to go into debt just because I want to buy everything off Amazon I have saved things for later and only treat myself every now and then πŸ˜‰.

Butterfly Encounter at Lukas Nursery


Do you know why I'm so excited to write this blog post? Because it's about life in Florida! FINALLY! We've finally started to settle in here and explore central Florida. I try to do something new in the city at least once a week, and this weekend my boyfriend and I had such a wholesome day at Lukas Nursery and I knew I needed to share with y'all.

My 2000s Emo Themed 30th Birthday Party


Okay, okay. I know the real reason you're all here. I threw an epic 30th birthday party—with a mandatory theme and all. I created hype around it, shared sneak peeks on TikTok, and posted some epic photos on my Instagram. I get it, you're ready for the breakdown of the party and I'm ready to share πŸ˜ˆ

My Birthday Weekend

As I mentioned before I decided to throw a huge party to celebrate turning 30 this year. I had a theme and mandatory dress code that everyone had to adhere to. Since most of my friends and family live in Northern Virginia I knew that coming down to my new home in Florida was asking a lot, so I wasn't shocked when a lot of people weren't able to make it. But for the friends that were able to make it—they made me feel so special, loved, and celebrated all weekend long. I shared a whole separate post about Oliver's birthday (click here to read) and my birthday party (click here to read) but the whole weekend was so special to me that I wanted to be sure to document it so I always remember πŸ₯°.

My Birthday Photo Shoot


I turned 30 this year!! WOW! When people say that your 30s are your best years yet—they weren't lying. I know, I know, I just turned 30, but so far I'm fucking loving it. Since I'm extra AF I wanted to do a birthday photoshoot to go with the theme of my 30th birthday party. So I put together my best Emo Princess fit and had an at-home photoshoot to celebrate turning 30.

Oliver's 7th Birthday


It's Bean's 7th birthday!!! My pup turned seven this year and I can't handle it. I always share his birthday celebration on the blog because 1. it's a tradition at this point and 2. we have the same birthday! So of course I have to celebrate my Aquarius twin each year.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Forest Experiennce


In early January my boyfriend and I went to the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Forest Experience in Leesburg, VA. I had been seeing this thing all over my for you page and even hometown friends had posted about it so I knew I had to go.

Funny Girl On Broadway (And Other New York Adventures)

I know, I know. This post is beyond overdue, but back in October, I took my mom to New York for two reasons 1. to celebrate my mom's birthday and 2. to see Lea Michele in Funny Girl! Say what you will about the girl but the bitch can sing okay. She's so talented and seeing her play Fanny Brice in Funny Girl on Broadway was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I was not going to pass up.

My 30th Birthday Wishlist


Holy crap. My heart just spilt into two pieces writing that title. And I'm undecided if that's a good or bad thing. It's more surreal. I still feel like I'm 18 and have to ask my parents permission to stay out past midnight. I was literally just in Forks, Washington living out my Twilight dreams and I'm almost done with my Invisalign (aka: braces, again). How the hell am I turning thirty??

What I Gave For Christmas

I decided not to do a "What I Got For Christmas" post this year because we just moved out of state and I simply did not have the bandwidth to do all that it takes to put into that post. Because it takes a lot! But I love sharing what I gave to my family and friends because it's easier to track and also there are some cool products out there that I want to share 😊. So I'm sharing some of my favorite gifts I gave this year.

Why I Chose To Become A Vegetarian

Every time someone finds out that I’m a vegetarian the first thing they ask me is, “Why?” It’s a fair question. Especially since I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 14 years old (almost 16 years 😱).

5 Apps That Help Me Create Content For My Blog

It’s no secret that content creation takes a lot of work. And a blog is included in that. I love coming up with new ideas and executing the fun photo shoots that go behind them, but actually organizing, editing, and posting all of the content can be very overwhelming.

Holy Crap–It's 2023!

Is it just me or does it feel like anyone who was thriving in 2020 has had a rough past couple of years? I don’t know what it is—but I think when my job went back to in-person in the second half of 2021 everything went kind of downhill from there. I struggled a lot mentally as it seemed that time was ticking away and yet I hadn’t accomplished what I had set out to. And 2022 was such a magical number—literally angel numbers! Yet I carried a lot of guilt feeling like I had wasted that year.
