The Perfect Day In Bondi

Originally posted on Little Brantley Abroad:
Today marks my last day in Bondi Beach before I head home for the holidays. I don’t know how, but from the moment I arrived, this beach town felt like home to me. Yes, it is a beautiful beach with attractive Aussie men running around 😉 but there is so much more to it. The people here are so kind and filled with great energy, anything you need is just a few steps away, and it has provided me with more incredible sunsets than I could have ever imagined. If you have a trip to Sydney planned, don’t miss out on a day in this spectacular place. Here’s how to have the perfect day in Bondi: Breakfast in Bondi: The restaurants in Bondi are so good that I will be posting a full article about all the delicious places to get brekkie, but for the sake of this post, I would recommend Speedos Cafe! Not only is their food amazing to photograph, it’s also delicious. (Below are their cronuts and pink…

Stocking Stuffers // Hers

Originally posted on Ordinary Adventures:
Honestly, my favorite gifts are always in my stocking. I never really received or was even a huge fan of bigger gifts. Getting a whole goodie bag of my favorite little stuff is the best way to my heart. I’ve also come to find, that for most people, this is the hardest part of Christmas shopping! So if you want?some cute but inexpensive gift ideas, or need to stuff that stocking, here’s some items she’s sure to love! *hint * Drew * hint* Sticky Notes?- Second to stocking stuffers, my favorite thing to get is little notes. What makes a little note even better? It being written on cute stationary! I love these innovative, fun stickies that have been out and popular for a while now. There’s so many cute sayings and fun messages, there’s sure to be one you will want to leave around. ? Fuzzy socks?- Is it really Christmas?if you don’t get at least one pair of socks? But ditch the boring Hanes and get some warm,…

Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gifts 2015: Santa’s Got A Brand New Douchebag

Haven’t finished your holiday shopping yet? Have an unreasonably large budget, no time to arrange a gift yourself, and a total d-bag on your shopping list? Yeah, me either, thank goodness. But for the second year in a row, we DO at least have the Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gifts to remind us that we’re better off than the people who do have those things — plus some low-budget alternatives for the rest of us. A Motorcycle Day With Keanu Reeves and Keanu Reeves’ Friend Gard Cost: $150,000.00 First, go to breakfast with Keanu Reeves and Keanu Reeves’ friend Gard – which I’d be into, I mean I’d hit up a good brunch with John Wilkes Booth and Justin Bieber if promised bottomless mimosas. Then go on a motorcycle ride, then go to a cafe. Then take a friend to dinner and ditch Keanu. Or don’t: the man has been through a lot and I hear he’s one of the nicest celebrities. The next day, ride through a forest with Keanu…

Amazon Killed the Bookstore, Long Live the Bookstore

Originally posted on The Scribble Bug:
Source: The New Republic, Dustin Kurtz Time Magazine might have thought it popped up by surprise, but in reality Amazon’s first physical bookstore has been a long time coming. Yes, you read that right. Amazon’s first physical bookstore. To be exact, they’ve opened a 5,500-square-foot bookstore, carrying a not-that-impressive 5,000 to 6,000 titles with 15 employees under the direction of Amazon Books Vice President Jennifer Cast. It’s also in Seattle (so most of us don’t have to worry too much just yet). However, if you’ve paid any attention to the larger book world of late, you’ll realise those usually soft susurrations of discontent are more like a cacophony of squawk boxes (and far more rancorous). Because bookstore owners loathe Amazon. Everyone knows that. They undercut the cost of books through ecommerce, drove more bricks-and-mortar shops out of business than can be counted, and upended the bookselling industry. That’s before they branched out into publishing, whereupon they pissed off the rest of the book industry as well. With this in…

I Hate Weekends

Originally posted on My 20-Year Diary:
04/01/00: Today is April Fools Day. Right now I am really mad at Cara. I asked her if she wanted to come over, and she said she would ask her mom and then call me back. Of course she never called, so I called her. Her mom answered and said she was gone for the day. Ugh! She always lies to me! I don’t want to take her crap anymore. I know she went to Britney’s house. I HATE Britney sooo much. She is really messed up and has to be with Cara 24/7 or else she’ll die. I hate weekends. 04/02/00: Today I had so much fun! Probably because I actually got out of the house for once. When I woke up, I went straight to the TV and turned it to VH1 on channel 68. It was Behind the Music on the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Even though I have seen it about four times, I watched it again. Then my mom, sister, and I went shopping…

Napa Valley, California

Originally posted on Chey Chey from the Bay:
Day tripping to Napa Valley is one of my favorite things to do while visiting home in San Francisco. Visiting wine country has definitely taken on a new meaning since my kiddie days, but even if you’re not into wine, the scenery in Napa is unbeatable, the restaurant selection is on point, there’s shopping & galleries, pretty areas to stroll through and did I mention it’s beautiful and relaxing? It’s the perfect place to get away, and if you’re already in NorCal, it’s ideal to visit for just the day or weekend. Hello wining & dining at its finest! Here’s a look at what I did on my last trip to Napa Valley with my parents. I can safely say I wish I never had to leave, but alas I live in reality, and am writing this from good ol’ NYC. Napa Valley is home to some of the best food in the country– from Michelin-starred restaurants to neighborhood eateries, this whole area is pretty much a hotbed of culinary superiority.

Clean Eating on a Budget at Target

Originally posted on Crafty Coin Recently, I’ve been challenging myself to shop at just one grocery store instead of bouncing around finding the best deals. I’ve conquered Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and now this week, I took my $70 weekly grocery budget and headed to Target! Target is one of those stores which seems to have a sort of cult following. People go nuts for this place! With it’s bright clean and chic atmosphere, quality dollar section, and usually a Starbucks available to enjoy a coffee while you shop, what isn’t there to love? Now here in Chicago, we have lots of different Target options. We’ve got the regular old Targets. The SuperTargets. The Urban Targets. And even the CityTargets. They all offer essentially the same thing, but with more or less variety at each store. Being that I have so many great grocery store options near my apartment, I’d never made the mile trek to my nearest Target to pickup my food for the week. When I arrived, I was surprised by what I found. Read …
