Choosy #Millenials

Lately, I’ve been reading hella articles on 20-somethings aka millenials, on how they’re super choosy when it comes to their jobs. Seems as if us young folks are gracing the papers with our high maintenance requests, needs for a super cool office environment and Ritual Coffee…Seems like we got the upper hand. If anything, I […]

Looking Into the Mirror

“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap into the dark.” -Agnes De Mille As a writer, there were several times in my […]

Our Travels- New York City

Oh, the Big Apple, there’s just so much to say. Even at 4 in the morning, the city feels so alive. I guess that’s why they say NYC is “the city that never sleeps!” I’ve never really considered myself a city person but, damn, did I fall deeply in love! I will be definitely returning. […]

It came to a huge surprise that my boyfriend bought me a two strand pearl necklace. He even researched on the authentication of a genuine pearl and everything!
