A part of me would like to say that I was partying the night away dressed in a slinky cowl neck midi dress with matching heels when the clock struck 12AM ringing in 2017 but no, I wasn’t. I was asleep. MJ had stayed awake with the guise that he was so cool he was going to […]
I was planning on writing about how homesick I was for an American Christmas with my traditional foods like a whole roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, pernil (roast pork), etc versus a turkey roll and new potatoes. I was also going to write a review for Disney’s latest movie, Moana and how […]
I came across this article on my Facebook newsfeed: I normally try to steer clear of opinion pieces of Americans because I don’t want to be exposed to more negativity. But I clicked on this one. I’m thankful that I did. While it saddens me that it happens at all, I’m also happy to know that I’m […]

I came across a website where you can buy some Mexican food staples in Australia. While some of the items I was familiar with, it still wasn’t the same products I cooked with in NJ. I decided to do another search (one that I did countless of times when I first moved here): Puerto Rican […]
One of the things that you don’t think about when you decide to move to the other side of the world is what will happen when a family member is ill – at least I didn’t think about it. About two years ago, my uncle was diagnosed with cancer. However, with chemo, he seemed to […]
