My Latest Adventure


Hi there! I'm Angela and welcome to my latest adventure! I've been wanting to start a blog for awhile now and finally decided to take the plunge. I have a background in journalism but recently did a career change and I'm getting my Masters in teaching. As much as I love teaching, I really miss writing so I decided it's time. Time for me to get back to writing. Time for me to step out of my comfort zone and share my life with you. While I'm an open book in person, I don't share a ton online, but that's all about to change!

I was born and raised in Huntington, WV but thanks to a series of unexpected events, I'm now living in Westfield, NJ -- about 35 minutes from New York City. I love the life I've created up here, but I miss home, my friends and family like crazy.

Along with getting my Masters in teaching -- and hopefully a teaching job! -- I opened my own travel agency last year, Daydream Destinations. I'd love to help you plan your dream vacation. From a one-night stay in a hotel to a fully customized trip to Europe and beyond, I do it all! I'd love for you to give me a follow on Instagram.

And just in case my plate isn't full enough, I'm also an independent sales consultant for Norwex. My family has a history of cancer so anything I can do to eliminate any risk of cancer -- no matter how small -- I'll take it. Plus, this stuff WORKS! It makes cleaning easy, fast and fun.
That's a quick intro to me. If I'm not out on an adventure somewhere, odds are I'm at home, listening to country music while baking a tasty treat, curled up reading with a big mug of hot tea....or let's face it, I'm probably napping.

Friday Favorites [8.5.22]

  It's Friday again and I'm linking up with Andrea and Erika for some more Friday Favorites! Remember how last week in my book review I said that I read The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy in about three days? I followed it up by watching the series on Amazon Prime and it is definitely a favorite. The show is so sweet and seven episodes was not nearly enough for me! I'm really hoping for a second season and it can't come soon enough! This Nashville-Style Hot salad is DELICIOUS! It's the Target brand good & gather and it's my absolute favorite. It has cornbread croutons and dill flavored dried cucumbers...I'm getting hungry just describing it. Plus it has the tastiest spicy ranch dressing that really makes the salad. When I buy these, I always pick up two because I love them that much. My Cricut has been a lifesaver over the last couple of weeks. Last week I had Covid and was going stir crazy being stuck in my house. Enter my Cricut. I made SO. MANY. st

July Book Review

I thought June was a good month for books, but somehow July was even better! This month saw seven books including a memoir, a YA series, some historical fiction, a beach read and suspense novel. Grab a glass of iced tea and open up your Goodreads account so you can add some of these books to your TBR list! My first read of the month was Over the Top  by Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye.  I was at the library looking for a different book when I saw this one and picked it up on a whim. I love the show and listened to Tan France's audiobook last year so I was excited to learn more about JVN and get some inside scoop on the show. That being said, I wasn't that impressed with the book. It mostly talks about his wild days and I do appreciate his vulnerability speaking out about mental health issues and how left untreated, it wasn't healthy -- or safe. I think I just went into the book with different expectations but that being said, I'm glad I read it. Next up was Not a Happ

Friday Favorites [7.29.22]

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with Andrea and Erika to share some of my favorites that have helped me get through summer so far! When e-readers came out, I fought and fought against one. Everyone who knows me knows how much I love reading and my dad insisted on getting me one for every holiday but I kept saying no. It wasn't until I traveled abroad and had limited space in my luggage that I gave in and tried one. I haven't looked back once! Ten years later and I got a new Kindle....the Paperwhite . The balcony at my apartment is finally finished and decorated so I've been sitting out on it more and knew I had a couple of beach trips planned and reading on the Kindle Fire is difficult with the glare from the sun. The Paperwhite makes reading outside so easy and the battery lasts forever! I didn't have to charge it once when I was in Mexico! I discovered this sunscreen last year and am OBSESSED! I've always known Trader Joe's was great for food but who knew
