  • About Me

    My name is Krista and I'm a student, writer, once-upon-a-time journalist, daughter, sister, and best friend. I dream of publishing a novel, writing for a magazine, traveling the world, and being a contestant on The Wheel of Fortune. In my spare time I watch old movies, eat cupcakes, and explore the city. I also write this blog. Have a look around and feel free to let me know what you think!

Beating the Heat with Cool Gear! #HotintheCity

Every summer without fail my family makes a point of throwing a few barbecue’s – well, except for last summer. Last summer we were really busy and never managed to pull one together, so the second the weather began to heat up we made plans to go grillin’! Living in the city means having to … Continue reading

Cleanse and Exfoliate: OXY Daily Defense Review & Giveaway! #HotintheCity

Getting it Together with Align Probiotic! #DRAlign #CBias

My family has a pretty consistent history of digestive issues – on both sides. We’ve even recently had a diagnosis of Celiac’s disease in the family. And while I could let a little of lask-lustre medical history get me down, I have instead decided to take a few preventive (or coping, lol!) measures of my … Continue reading

Hot & Cold with Arm & Hammer!

Almost a year ago I took an English class where my professor insisted that we visit at least half a dozen galleries (along with the High Line) in Chelsea. So two weeks ago, when I was invited to a brand event I was more than intrigued, and certainly more than willing to venture back into Chelsea. Who … Continue reading

My Latest Obsession: Litographs!

 It’s not too often that I stumble upon the perfect gift – and by perfect I mean, it’s a gift that pretty much everybody I know would completely and absolutely love. Because most everybody I know loves to read, and my closest friends and family happen to be serious fans of all the classics, I … Continue reading

Invisalign and My Experience with Braces

I had my braces removed not too long ago (and by “not too long ago” I mean the memory is still fresh in my mind, lol!), and for me braces were a long drawn out process. I had the standard braces with wire and metal brackets, and now I wear a part-time retainer. I initially … Continue reading

I’ve been feeling a little under the weather recently, mostly due to my allergies. So this weekend I stopped by Duane Reade to pick up a few products that I feel made my life a little healthier and certainly a lot happier.

The Most Magical of All Flash Drives!

Between BlogHer and Toy Fair I’ve collected tons of USB’s – for me, after I’ve gone through and made use of the information loaded on them, they’re more like souvenirs,  a reminder of brands and events that I’ve been to and loved. I collect them all in a drawer on my desk organizer and I recently … Continue reading
