Baby Loves –

I don’t know if I 100% agree with this list I stumbled across, but they boast to have compiled the top 10 trips to take within your lifetime, and who am I to keep that information to myself? Travel bug problems.

Regardless of if you agree, these destinations are sweet.

  1. Iceland
  2. Great Wall of China
  3. Taj Mahal
  4. Giza, Egypt
  5. Iguazu Falls, Argentina
  6. Angkor Wat, Cambodia
  7. Grand Canyon, Arizona
  8. Eiffel Tower, France
  9. Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
  10. Italy

I’ve only been to France and Italy from the above, so it looks like I have some things to see.

Back to work for me – enjoy the rest of your Thursday my dears!

In case anyone was curious, the equinox that happened a few days ago – March 20th- was the vernal equinox (the other one that happens every year is the autumnal equinox on September 22 or 23), and it signifies Spring. Technically, it marks the passing of the Sun from the Earth’s southern region into its northern one. At this point, rays from are expected to shine directly over the planet’s equator, creating a phenomenon where both hemispheres receive the same amount of sunlight.

This year, the equinox happened to be the earliest one since 1896. Hmmm…. climate change? Global warming?

Hello there beautiful bees.

I have to finish up some schoolwork, so I can’t do a full post, but I thought I would share this awesome organization I stumbled across today. Of course I have already started the ordering process, it’s so up my alley!

Visit their website, here.

Hey Boos!

I have SO much to catch you up on, but I’m about to leave my coffeeshop post for a dentist appointment (woo), so I don’t have time to do it this minute. However, really quickly I just wanted to share two random facts with you. Stay tuned for the real meat… it’ll be coming soon!

Things to eat that are HIGH in IRON: cashews, peanuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, dark chocolate, spinach

Ever seen “e.g.” written somewhere and wondered what it stood for? Well, it’s Latin, and it means exempli gratia, which translates to “for the sake of an example”. Yay fun facts 🙂

I’ve got to jet — later loves! xxoo

Fellow Travel Bugs,

I just booked a trip to Tucson, Arizona!!! I’m super excited (I’ve never been to AZ before) AND I will be going during Winter Break in January, so I’ll escape some of the brutal New England cold *hopefully*. Plus there are rocks, rocks and more rocks for me to climb. Eeeee.

If anyone has any Arizona recommendations, even if it’s outside of Tucson, please let me know! I always appreciate the advice and feedback.

I use this website called student universe where they give you discounted tickets if you’re a student or faculty member. They also send me the occasional email, and one that I received recently was cool, so I figured I would pass it along. They claimed 7 prime destinations for 2016 with reasonable travel price tags, and they are as follows:

  • Reykjavik, Iceland. Cue Northern Lights, hot springs and geothermal beaches
  • Hong Kong, China
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Kyoto, Japan
  • Venice, Italy
  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • Queenstown, New Zealand

… okay, so who’s coming with me?!? But really.
