15 best things I ate in 2015

2015 was a great year in terms of food. Considering I had about 5 pounds to gain, I totally ate my heart out while dining out. My obsession in 2015 was truffle oil. I ordered several items with truffle oil and I loved each and every single one of them, and thus you’ll see a few favorites on my list containing truffle oil. Aside from Manhattan, this year I explored the culinary scene in Aruba, Austria, Germany and Czech Republic! I can't say that I particularly enjoyed Austrian, German and Czech food, but fortunately there were other cuisines to choose from in those countries which made my list. So without further ado, here are my top 15 in 2015!15 best things I ate in 2015

Farewell 2015 & Happy New Year!

Have I really been MIA that long? My bad, I hope no one noticed! Yeah, sometimes life happens and it becomes difficult to write with a preoccupied mind. I’m trying though! As I sit back and reflect on 2015, I'd say it was a pretty rough year for my family with my dad’s passing, but there were also some great moments that I would like to share with you.


Gift Guide (my favorite things of 2015)

With Christmas just a few days away, here are some of my favorite items of 2015, in particular:

  • The Longchamp Le Pliage bag! This bag holds so much stuff, and it is still so lightweight.  A great carry-on bag.  
  • I also love the Naked Palette by Urban Decay.  It is such a versatile palette, and I especially love the shade Darkhorse (an olive green).  
  • Every year around the holidays I buy a new perfume, but this year I'm sticking with Chloe, it's a soft, fresh scent with prominent floral notes.
  • Speaking of fragrances, the Amazing Grace Shower Gel by Philosophy smells sensational, I promise you'll never go back to regular soap. 
  • And lastly, this year I finally bought myself a red lipstick. I know! Highly recommend Mac's Ruby Woo, it complements every complexion.

Cafes, Brunch & Lunch in Palm Beach | Aruba

Continuing Aruba...

When in Aruba make sure you try a Dutch Pancake, they come sweet & savory so there is something for everyone.  There are a few places around the island that specialize in Dutch Pancakes.  Since you can easily pack on those calories on vacation, my friend, Shanam, and I stuck to our 2 meals a day rule.  This worked out well since both of us would roll out of bed around 10 AM and then enjoy the view from our balcony with a cup of coffee.  We would then head to the beach to work up an appetite and then grab brunch or lunch somewhere.  After eating we would then head back to the beach and pool for another 3-4 hours followed by a 3 course dinner.  As you can see, 2 meals a day worked out quite nicely in terms of cost and calories.  Here are a few places to check out in Aruba that are perfect for daytime.
