Savory, sweet, or other, here are tasty snacks that will satisfy your craving without killing your diet.
I don’t really snack (give me meal or give me death!), but this is a good list to save.
I need a taser and adult day care.
I think I’m losing all self-control. Whether or not I still have self-respect is going to be debatable pretty soon.
A six-pack IPA that I’ve never tasted that I will undoubtedly love
For Heidi Klum to have not just “raised the roof” on this episode of Project Runway
For me to have my artwork up on my damn walls already. Why am I so lazy?
Someone to mop my floors
The weight gain over the last two months to quickly disappear
World peas :)
More than 6% free space on my DVR

The beauty of Downtown Old LA is not lost behind these eyes.
The massive, psychotic, ASSHOLE downstairs that I’m constantly passive aggressively fighting with has crossed so many lines. It’s 2 am. The cops just came to pay me a visit. One look and they realize I’ve been asleep. As soon as I lay back in bed, here comes the loud music. It IS Tuesday right? I tried to rush outside to find them and they were gone. I called 311 to explain my horrors. A complaint was found.
Fuck them all.
I’ve been skeptical of writing this post because I wanted to make sure everything was set before jinxing myself or speaking too soon. Alas, the wait is over…
I’M DEFINITELY GOING TO EUROPE!!! WOOOOOO! (Finally)
I’m one of, if not, the only one of my friends who hasn’t been to the continent yet and I’m super stoked. I’m going to 5 countries in 10 days and can’t wait to experience all there is to offer on the other side of the world. While the planning for this trip took us in so many different directions from 28 hr layovers in Moscow, 16 hrs in Lisbon, to only sticking to the British Isles, we finally settled on London -> Paris -> Brussels -> Amsterdam ->with a 2 day “layover” in Dublin before heading back to NYC. Between the first and last cities, we’re taking trains to link us to the other locations. With stays in an old prison-turned-hostel, hotels, and Air bnb, this trip has turned into something more affordable than I ever thought. Now that we’ve booked our lodging and travel 3 months prior to going, I can now spend the rest of my days thinking of outfits to bring (not much because I can’t wait to shop) and what we should do/see there.
Since we won’t have that much time in each city to do everything, I want this trip to be more of a localized adventure. I will walk by the London Eye and Eiffel Tower, but don’t want to spend 4 hours on a line at the Louvre. There isn’t enough time to do all of these things but I do want to make sure I’m speaking and hanging out with locals, finding the places they like to visit, eat/drink, and just getting an everyday experience that might not necessarily be in every travel guide. I’m not taking this trip to relax or take naps in every city. I want to explore, take great photos, party, see a castle, meet some boys, eat croissants all day, experience real cheese, and taste the most succulent, velvety sauces. Basically this trip is about food, alcohol, pictures, and pimping all over the world.
If anyone has been to any (or all) of these places, please let me know your most memorable tastes, sights, sounds, etc. What is the place you can’t wait to get back to in any of these cities?

The island country of Iceland is best known for its volcanoes, beautiful waterfalls, northern lights and hard to pronounce, well, everything! It’s situated between the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, and the Mid-Atlantic Ridge slices right through the center of the small island nation. Though it is only 103,000 square kilometers (40,000 square miles), there’s no shortage of photographic terrain.
Want a first-person tour of Iceland? We put together a list of some amazing Instagrammers from in and around the country.

Wish my layover in Iceland was more than an hour long. Next time I’ll try to stretch that to a week.

I’m saying though! Just do it already!
