I don’t think I’ve ever published anything about Pow!Wow! before, but I’ve definitely intended to. The annual street art festival grew out of Honolulu back in 2013 and has spread internationally– luckily to my backyard! Pow!Wow! San Jose started in 2017, the same year I moved there for college, and I have plenty of unpublished […]
Making Pet Travel Paw-ssible!
It’s pretty well known that San Diego is an extremely dog friendly city, so to celebrate the end of my college career and the start of summer we decided it was time to take our English Bull Terrier, Kona, on her first vacation! Aside from a quick day trip to Yosemite this was Kona’s longest road trip […]
How Accessible is Aulani to Day-Visitors?
As I mentioned before I was not staying at Aulani when I visited the O’ahu resort. I had made breakfast reservations at one of their restaurant’s as a way to gain access to some Disney magic, but what I didn’t anticipate was just how much access we would have for someone who wasn’t an overnight guest! […]
Am I really Michelle if I didn’t visit Disney’s Hawaiian Resort?? Located on the southeastern side of O’ahu Aulani Resort & Spa is Disney’s only Hawaiian property and while we weren’t staying there (cause money) we were at the complex next door, so we paid them a nice, neighborly visit in the form of brunch […]
My Clean Routine
I know what this post must look like, but I swear I’m not transitioning into a beauty or lifestyle blogger! I’ve simply been making some changes in my personal life and they’ve had a really positive impact so I wanted to share them with you! At the beginning of 2019 I decided that as my […]
DC in a Day
Last weekend I found myself sitting in a revolving rooftop bar, taking in the panoramic view of Washington DC and detailing our next day’s itinerary on a cocktail napkin. With 48 hours of exploration time before flying back to reality, I was on a mission to make the most of our limited time! (^gotta say […]
Stadium Stories | 2019 All Star Game
You’ve heard it time and time again, but I am a huge hockey fan (shocker!) I was fortunate enough to grow up in a household that’s had San Jose Sharks season tickets longer than they’ve had me, so we get a few perks within the franchise from time to time. 27 years of loyalty got […]
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team!
Yup, another New York blog post. I clearly have no shame for my love of New York City, considering I’ve visited three times in the past year, but this third time I was able to take my boyfriend along and check a new city off of his bucket list! Of course we hit all the […]
Prost Like A Pro!
I’m German. Well, at least ancestry.com says so. Like a century back my family immigrated to the US through Ellis Island and here I am today, a California girl who loves both beer and pretzels, so I’d say that calls for an appropriate Oktoberfest celebration, right?? *watch the comments for my Aunt Janie to come […]
A Broad Range of Artwork
It’s not Braude, it’s BrOde said Hermione Granger, I think. The Broad is the newest addition to Downtown LA’s museum offerings – just look for the building that resembles swiss cheese! It opened only three years ago and has a stunning collection of all forms of art. It’s even with a work of art – the curvy […]
