Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

In the Spring of 2004 I spent a really long Spring break trekking around Europe with Lisa. From Ireland we went to Brussels to Amsterdam to Paris to Rome, which included a quick visit to Florence, and then headed back to Ireland to take our final exams, after which, we would fly off to London […]

a gaming celebration

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Justine of Brand About Town, who bestowed upon me an opportunity to become a Brand Enthusiast for Nintendo. We met, we continued to email and the next thing I knew, I was about to host one of the funnest parties I’ve ever attended. The catch […]

Once getting through security, my ritual begins. I grab a coffee and head straight to the newsstand. I inspect the glossy […]

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

I can be impulsive. The other day when I got an email from Verizon saying I could upgrade my phone early, I searched for the closest store and got a BlackBerry Curve – I love it. And yes, I got a pink one. This, by the way is really unlike me. You’re reading the blog […]

a travel essential

Travel Gear Tuesday hasn’t made an appearance in a while, but I figured I would get back on track after coming across the most brilliant piece of travel gear I have seen in a while. I think that was pretty self-explanatory. My friend Bryce got this at the Gap Outlet on sale right before our […]
