Top Places to visit on Long Island

Top Places to visit on Long Island!

If you live on Long Island I am sure you know all of the local hot spots and we all have our strong opinions on who has the best pizza (Papa Nicks in Bellport for me), but if you are visiting I am sure you would like to check out some of the best places we like to eat at and hang out. Just a side note, I am in Suffolk County which is eastern half of Long Island, so most things I will note are in Suffolk County. This is also a list of things that I personally enjoy going to and I hope that you will enjoy them as well. Top Ten Food: JT’s on the Bay - During the summer there are so many amazing places to eat at on the water. I enjoy going to JT’s on the Bay for some lunch. It is a quaint little place to eat outside on a beautiful day by the south shore, and if you would still like to try their food on a not so beautiful day you can visit JT’s Cafe in Blue Point. That Meetball Place - Patchogue is known for their selection of places to eat on Main Street.…

TRAVEL: Universal Orlando

Everyone needs a nice long vacation once in a while. My boyfriend decided to surprise me with a trip to universal Orlando Florida. I have never been and really wanted to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and be the Hufflepuff that I am.

I have bad anxiety when it comes to transportation and flying is the worst but I was just so tired from the flight being so early, that it didn't really affect me.

So we stayed at Cabana Bay, which is the hotel in the park. It has the coolest 60s retro theme that I just adore. Anything that is vintage I am all about. There was so much in this hotel alone to keep guests …

Art Night Tips and Tricks

Having an art night is a fun get together where you can spend some time with your friends and family doing something fun and creative. It is a great way to keep kids busy and adults at ease. I recently put together an art night for my 24thbirthday to just hang out with my closest friends. It was really nice to do something different since we are always having game nights because we love playing tabletop games. I am an artist so I have all of the supplies we needed to have a successful art night. Michaels was also having their biggest sale of the season so I went out and purchased a lot of canvases. I also stopped at AC Moore and got some craft paint to put in goodie bags for everyone to use and take home. Being the artist that I am, I themed each goodie bag a color of the rainbow.

Here are my 10 tips for traveling. 1.Stay Organized a.Keeping organized is so important when you are traveling. You don’t want to forget anything so what I like to do is make a list of things I need to pack in my suitcase as well as my carry on. b.Another tip to stay organized is to get divider bags to go inside of your suitcase.
