Farewell 2015. Hello 2016!


2015 was an incredible year. I met some amazing people (on and offline), traveled to some gorgeous places and celebrated my one year wedding anniversary. But like all years in the past, I am always thankful for my family, friends and health. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for me in 2016. I’ll be kicking off the year by relocating to India for 3 months! Although it’s for business, I sure plan on exploring new places, trying new foods and meeting new people. Best of all, Dan will be joining me in February for a whole month (yippee!).

But with a new year comes resolutions. In 2016 resolve to be patient with others. Yes, I am the most impatient person in the world! I also resolve to be kinder. This is something I think we can all strive to be. In this crazy world, let’s try to be kind to each other.

I wish you and your family a very healthy and happy 2016.


I’m Getting Married!

Ok, so Dan and I are already married. We got hitched at Boston City Hall on 10/10. But the party really starts when we get to Puerto Rico!!! So while I am getting married (again), the blog will be on a bit of a hiatus. However, you can keep tabs on me via IG, Twitter and Facebook. I’ll be back!


My Sci-scents Experiment

commodity goodsShopping for fragrances is one of my least favorite things to do. I mean, why do I think that selecting a scent based on what it smells like on a piece of cardboard is a good idea? Unfortunately for me, and my wallet, there have been too many times where a full bottle was purchased and after a few wears, I realize that the scent doesn’t do it for me. Major fail. I’ve resorted to stalking the perfume counters for samples, but most of the time, they don’t have what I want to try. So, my go to are the rollerballs or travel size fragrances, but it’s not the most economical way. What is a guy or gal to do? Enter Commodity Goods!
