One Day at Indigo Beach

Haiti has many beautiful beaches. Over the past few years, the country as a whole has been working really hard on making sure the rest of the world is caught up on that fact. Montrouis, a little town located in the Ouest Department, is well known for its beach destinations, which includes Moulin Sur Mer, Club […]


From Jacmel, with love

We got on the road and headed to Jacmel as soon as I landed in Port-au-Prince. I’ve never been, and Gessica wanted to take me. I was so excited! But I tried to remain neutral so I wouldn’t get disappointed. I’ve learned that things are not always what they seem, and by remaining neutral, I […]


Travel files: Austin, TX

Well done, Austin. Well done. I agreed to visit my fiancé in Austin during his two-month work trip, but I wasn’t at all very excited. Well, I was excited to see him of course, but not very excited about the trip. I kept wishing his work sent him somewhere cool and romantic like Paris, or […]


Finding Art in Haiti

Finding art in Haiti is easy. All you have to do is go outside. Wherever you are, there is art. You’ll find walls covered with colorful paintings, wood and steel drum sculptures defying the hot sun for miles and miles. People will walk up to your car window with their work, and they will make […]


Haiti en Couleur

Earlier this year, I sat in an auditorium in the Upper East Side on a cold winter evening to celebrate Haitian cinema. I was there to support Haiti’s only film school, Cine Institute. I remembered when this little boy came on the screen.  He said that Haiti to him represented life because of how colorful it […]


A weekend in Chicago

I went to Chicago for the very first time 3 weekends ago and had a fantastic time. Tyler and I attended a wedding, and since he was in the wedding party, I had time to explore the city on my own a little. People were very friendly. We stayed at a cute little boutique hotel […]


He proposed!

      We met in Madison, NJ almost 8 years ago, and we started dating almost immediately. Last week, during our five-day hiking adventure in the White Mountains, he proposed on top of Mount Madison. We reached the peak (5366 feet in the air) at 3:57 pm. The skies couldn’t have been clearer, and […]


More California fun!

Days lounging by the pool in the summertime with a good cocktail never gets old. I spent the day with a friend since our significant others were out golfing with the groom of the wedding we attended. It resulted in a day of shopping where we ended up getting matching gold sequined jackets from a […]


Some California fun

This was my second time in California, and I had so much fun! Despite the traffic and the amount of time we spent in the car going from place to place, it was a nice little vacation. My boyfriend and I went for a wedding, but we made the trip into a five day weekend […]


A weekend by the lake in New Hampshire

A little weekend getaway in the woods is just what every New Yorker everyone needs. My boyfriend and I drove up to New London, NH recently for a family weekend and to celebrate a few wonderful events and accomplishments. We stayed at a country inn by Pleasant Lake, and it was just what I needed. The lake was […]
