Exploring Pape’ete, Capital of Tahiti

During our 1 day stay at InterContinental Tahiti, we took a shuttle from the hotel to Pape’ete. We explored downtown, got my black pearl souvenir from one of the many pearl shops, had lunch by the pier, and sampled some McDonald’s items only on the Tahiti menu. Pearls are much cheaper in Tahiti than other islands in French Polynesia and exploring another island before Bora Bora or Mo’orea is worth the stop. Read more

Spinach & Feta Turkey Burger + Feta Fries

I’d definitely say I’m a foodie – I love eating out and trying new restaurants – but I secretly like playing chef at home. The kitchen is everything at home and I’ve actually picked my last three apartments because of the kitchen! It’s funny because I’m actually really self conscious about my cooking so you […]

Foodie Fridays: Hawai’i Edition

There’s a ton of reasons I love going home to Hawai’i and one of them is definitely the food. I’m a total fat kid at heart and there’s nothing like some ono grinds (delicious food)! Luckily I have awesome friends who are (literally) always down to eat and take me to all the hot spots […]

Houndstooth Coffee at SYLVAN | THIRTY

I love coffee. Or maybe I’m just a caffeine addict. Coffee is definitely an acquired taste, a taste I learned while doing all nighters at Old Main at UofA. But even though I’ve been a loyal Starbucks Gold Card member since 2010 (and I say that a little too proudly), I can’t say hands down […]
