By | January 8th, 2016|Color Me Fun, Color Me Smart, to do list|

Three years ago to this day, I was getting ready to board a flight to Barcelona, Spain, where I would proceed to experience the best four months of my life. While I am on the verge of being blinded by jealousy as my younger classmates prepare for their own semesters abroad, I decided to take [...]

Bingeworthy: My Netflix Picks

By | December 29th, 2015|pop culture, to do list, uncolored reviews|

If you're anything like me, the onset of winter weather means one thing: hibernation. For those days and nights when you can't even fathom opening the door to get the mail, Netflix is your salvation. Forget the stinging of the midwinter wind on your cheeks - instead, go for the stinging of your eyes as your [...]

"'Maybe Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!'" - The Grinch This is my favorite quote to repeat every holiday season. It also happens to come from one of my all time favorite movies. I think this is something we all tend to forget during the hustle and bustle of this [...]

Happy Cyber Monday, everyone! This is the one day a year I give myself free reign (within reason, of course) to fill those online carts and ACTUALLY go through with submitting my credit card info. Did I say the one day? Maybe I meant one of many days. Whatever. ;) Since I'm getting a later start on my Cyber Monday [...]

Black Friday is so overrated. I know - I'm one of the world's worst shopaholics and I don't shop on Black Friday. My high school girlfriends and I used to, but we went more for something to do than for the supposedly amazing sales. We would get together for coffee and saunter over to the [...]

Trying to get your blog recognized and expand readership is a lot more difficult than you might think, especially because of how many other bloggers are out there.

November is National Diabetes Month. The goal is to spread awareness of the disease that is so often misunderstood and stigmatized. As I mentioned in my diabetes series earlier this fall, diabetes kills more people per year than AIDS and breast cancer combined. Type 1 diabetes is responsible for an estimated loss of life expectancy [...]

Orange You Glad…

...I didn't make a pumpkin pun? ;) A couple of weeks ago, my friend Melissa and I went to Boston Hill Farm in North Andover. We had gone apple picking earlier in the day, but I wouldn't rest until we fit in another fall activity on that beautiful day! As much as I miss being [...]
