Unless you’re new to my blog (welcome, welcome!) or you’ve been living under some gross rock trying to hide from all the Internet greatness that exists (totally judging you) then you should already know by now that I just wrote a book (insert the deepest longest sigh of life!). Becoming an author has been on my mega life goal list since I was 11. I use to set up shop in my bedroom with my Barbies and Kid Sister and we’d have book readings and signings. I know, I was so extra as a kid.

Because writing a book is literally the hardest thing you will ever do, I had to focus. And the amount of focus that’s needed to write a book, girl! A fellow author of mine suggested detoxing to get my mind clear. So no fried foods, no sweets and an abundance of water! It actually worked and I was able to bang this book out in no time. But now that I am finally finished my book I’m looking to make this summer the best summer ever. For me, that means I want need to indulge in everything.

Catherine's NYC Staycation

How many times have you explored the city that you live in? You know, went somewhere new and just had fun or relaxed without the pressures of checking your inbox for a few hours. Very rarely do we take the time to enjoy moments of pleasure in our own city. I’ve been living in New York for almost four years and there are still so many things I haven’t done. So when Catherine’s decided to surprise four bloggers with a NYC staycation I gladly excepted.

Staycations are actually quite simple to plan and can save you lots of money on expensive plane tickets and car rentals. But what you don’t want to do is stay in your hotel room the whole weekend. So here’s a few ideas for you to help you plan your next staycation in New York.  View Full Post

What Women Want 2016
