Thoughts for the Day…

Never underestimate the power of your thoughts. A single thought can shape your entire day and entire sense of being. Remember how powerful you are and remember never to let anyone take that power away from you. You’re as strong as you believe you are. And you have to believe in yourself. No matter what.

Museums are Underrated

Very recently my sister and I decided to do something I personally haven’t done in years and something I know she hasn’t done since she’s been in school…. go to a museum! And let me tell you, we had an absolute blast. One thing I really do treasure about living so close to NYC is all of the fabulous places I can go to and some of the incredible museums are a big part of of that. We went down the whole list but decided on The Met. If you haven’t been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art I suggest you go!! It’s not just art, and trust me they have some of the greats (Van Gogh, Monet), it’s a cultural and historical experience.

If you know me, you’ll know I am a complete history nerd and really can’t get enough of it. I have such a passion for it and really do believe in the importance of learning about our past in order to be able to know that much more about the world we live in today. One of my favorite parts of the museum is the Ancient Egyptian section. Of all of the different eras of history, I have a few top favorites… Ancient Egyptian, American Civil War era, French Revolution era, Ancient Roman and Greek and Renaissance. But I really dork out over anything with Ancient Egypt. And the Met really has it all. My sister and I were like kids in a candy store! Here are some of my favorite things I saw that day as a whole:

There were many many more but suffice it to say I had such a great day and learned a lot. I really find it so incredible to think that all of those things were created by/used by people once, however many years ago. It just really makes the world and time feel so much more vast. What the last good trip to a museum YOU had? Museums are so much fun and definitely shouldn’t just be reserved for school trips.

Add it to the Wish List….

You know… my birthday is coming up! hehe. I don’t know where or when I would even wear this dress but it is just so beautiful. I am all about romantic dresses and anything that feels ethereal and this dress is that to me. All in all, this is such a wish list item and I am really determined to have it! haha

This is very exciting!!

Hello all! I am back. I know I took a very long hiatus but life got busy and I… well…. had a bit of writer’s block but I’m back and ready to update. And what better way to begin than with a music post! And what’s even better about it is it’s a concert post! I’ll admit I haven’t been to a concert in a ridiculously long, embarrassing amount of time. The last show I went to was Lady Gaga back in 2011 which was of course, an AMAZING time but that was so long ago. With that said, I am very excited to say that OF MONSTERS AND MEN ARE PLAYING IN THE CITY…. AND I’M GOING! Wahoooooo!

Of Monsters and Men

Haha, I just had to get off that my chest. I really got into them earlier this year as soon as I heard the brilliance that is “Little Talks” and ever since then, I’ve been completely hooked. If you haven’t listened to their album, “My Head Is An Animal” I strongly suggest you do. If you like a little mix of folk, bluegrass, and harmonies, you will probably like it. I’ve posted one of my favorite songs below. And if you live in the NYC area and want to go to to what I’m sure will be a truly fantastic show, here is the link! They are playing at Terminal 5 on November 20th. Again, cue the excitement! Is anyone here going to any good shows soon? Oh and I always post reviews when I go to shows, so there is that to look forward to as well ha. Enjoy!
