Our mission in the Dominican Republic is a multifaceted operation. Our main mission is the support of a guardaria, which is essentially a place that serves as a free daycare to preschool age kids and offers them two square meals a day (that they would not receive at home). I have a million adorable pictures […]
Over the past few weeks, I have been spending more and more time in the offices of my professors at my new school. I have been in this school for nine weeks now and in those nine weeks, the only friends that I have made are double my age. I had a few things to […]
First and foremost, I am not dead so please do not call my mom and offer your condolences (although, if you want to send some flowers or food and donate money to a worthy cause in my name, feel free to do so!) I am not dead but if I was, you would probably say […]
Yes, friends, it is true. I stopped using shampoo three months ago. Please hold your judgements until the end and just bear with me. When I tell people about my shampoo-free lifestyle, I tend to get a lot of the same questions. A question you probably have is why I tell people that I don’t […]
Being a babysitter or nanny can be very interesting. Where there are kids, there are innocent statements and questions that make for a good laugh for adults. I have been babysitting for about five years now and nannying for about four months. It is time to share some untold stories and some ridiculous conversations that […]
Since the post I published on how I saved $4000 as a nanny over the summer, I have been getting a lot of feedback from friends asking for more specific help. I know that for a lot of people, the hardest part of saving is curbing excessive spending and impulse buying. Here is my advice […]
When I travel, I try my best to travel like a local. I like to eat at the cool local dives and go to places suggested by the locals rather than the sponsored suggestions on Yelp and Travelocity. I live in a very touristy place, close to some major tourist attractions. Being a tourist is […]
A Summer of Savings As the summer comes to an end, so does my 13-Week Summer Saving Plan. If you know me or if you have read my post on deciding to transfer from a school that was completely covered by scholarship to one that not, you know that I had made a really […]
If you keep up with my blog or follow me on any form of social media, you know that I went on my third mission trip to Las Matas de Farfan. You saw the pictures of us and the kids and my sister and I riding horses and my mom’s new pet chicken, Suzie. You […]
A couple days ago I went zip lining and it was not enjoyable in the least. We had three separate lines to zip, followed by a free fall. Mixing my insane fear of heights and a hatred for feeling like falling led to a terrifying time for me and a great laugh for the guys […]
Last night, I was up until nearly 5 AM with crazy thoughts running through my head. If you know me, you know that my bedtime is 10:20 PM (realistically, like, 11:30 PM). I am basically a grandma and I have no shame. Last night was truly something else. I kept praying and praying because that […]

For the past 18 months, I have not washed my hair with “normal” shampoo and rarely use any products on my hair. On my no-poo journey, I discovered something beautiful: soap nuts. Soap nuts, also knowns as soapberries, are naturally occurring nuts found on trees that are cousins of the Lychees. These little gifts from […]
The Ultimate Savings Plan Money: it’s a sore topic when you don’t have any. I am going to let you in on a little secret. I am 21 years old. For the past three years, I have been taking 15-18 credits a semester at a private university and working as a nanny. I am supposed […]
In case you haven’t heard, I dropped out of school and started modeling. I know it probably isn’t the path that most of you thought I’d go down, but life has a weird way of winding the road when you least expect it. As you have probably guessed, I am totally kidding. I have just […]
