On my radar: Me Before You

I saw the trailer for Me Before You recently and within minutes I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Maybe it’s the Ed Sheeran song (his songs always get me). Either way it stirred a lot of emotions and I knew I had to go see this movie when it came out. [instagram url=] A friend of mine gave me a kindle fire recently, and…

Something every 20 something should be doing

Struggling. Yep. Struggling. It’s hard because in our 20’s especially, we millennials (or at least I) feel the pressure to “have it all together”, in business and life, for our peers after graduation but the truth is, you’re not supposed to have it all together. Your twenties is about you trying and failing and figuring out what is right for you though trial and error….

Sunday Supper at Little Meats LA

Before I moved out here to Los Angeles, I did my research. Research of what neighborhood I might want to live in. Research of places I might want to visit and things I might want to try. I even did research on instagram for places I might want to eat at. Somehow I came across Little Meats LA and it was only until recently that I finally…

On My Radar: Skin Laundry, Los Angeles

Just came back from a weekend in NorCal, still sore from crossfit (my first time yesterday) and with my skin looking more irritated, dry and tired than usual. I’ve struggled with acne since my early teens and it seems that my skin hasn’t been acclimating well to the west coast “winters” so I booked an appointment at Skin Laundry before the weekend since I knew I’d…

The Rare Specimen Vocabulary

I love words. I love vocabulary. I always have since I was younger (spelling bees and the reading section on the SAT were actually fun for me). I like learning the etymology of words and understanding the definitions. Lately I’ve been making up my own words, because sometimes there just aren’t words that already exist to describe new and incredible things/feelings. Since having my Rare Specimen (significant…

Thoughts on Soulmates

Remember when I made a friend in an Uber Pool car ride and a couple of weeks later we had a small dinner party together? We talked about soulmates that night. And the way she described it has changed what the word means to me since. (Soulmate. I know. It’s an intense word but I’m going to write about it). Cheers to special moments shared with…

First post of 2016

I’ve been thinking a lot about 2016 and the things I want to improve on this year. They’re not resolutions, rather, they’re things I’ve been working on for years now but hope to really solidify into my habits with renewed focus and commitment this year. Within my theme of Focus and Discipline, in 2016 I’d really like to focus on Creativity. I was listening to this podcast…

Goodbye 2015. 

What a difference a year can make. What a difference a few months can make! This year in 2015, almost halfway through the year, I completely uprooted myself to a new city and “started again.” I’ve made new friends, dusted off some older connections, began a new relationship and new job and slowly grew out of the skeleton of “New York Andrea.” 2015 was about…

Best Writing Advice

I wrote my 4th post on Quora! The question was: What is the best writing advice you have received? Read my answer here I’m shocked at how many views and followers I’ve already gotten on the platform. In just one month since I have started I’m at 128K views and 86 followers! Not that numbers really drive me, but it does feel quite amazing to have…
