La Comida en Sevilla (Spain Part 2)

This took me a grossly long time to upload, but I couldn’t not. Who doesn’t love food pics?! Lobster with Mangos & Bok Choy Cauliflower Puree The food in Sevilla was so damn delicious. I was in heaven, eating like a queen. From my experience, some of the most popular foods and drinks there are paella, ham, pork, tuna, potatoes, bread, gelato, churros, coffee, and wine, amongst other things. I’m a brunch fanatic, so the fact that the people of Sevilla don’t really do the whole “breakfast” thing was rough for me. But I did my best to embrace the culture, and…

Yesterday I spent all day in bed recovering from some major back pain from lugging around my ridiculously heavy suitcases the day before around four different airports, but it was so worth it.

Christmas Movie Extravaganza

THE TIME HAS ARRIVED! Christmas 2015 prep time is finally here! Eeeeeeek! I am beyond excited. As promised, here is my movie list for this year. This list is definitely not exhaustive. I’ll be watching an embarrassingly larger amount of holiday movies than mentioned here. This list is simply my absolutely-must-watch-every-year-or-I’ll-die films. Thank god for Lifetime, Hallmark, & ABC Family for filling in the gaps… If you can cover all of these movies before December 25th, I guarantee you a magical Christmas season. So pull out a fluffy blanket, your onesie, and some fuzzy socks, whip up some hot cocoa, and curl up by…

With every shopping temptation comes the question – should I splurge on this or should I save my money? I have some general rules I personally use to make the smartest shopping decisions possible,…
