Be Back Soon From A Much-Needed Cruise This Spring Break

For spring break this year, I will be going on a seven day cruise. I am going with my boyfriend, Logan, and his family. This was my Christmas present from them and I AM SO EXCITED.

We will be going on the Carnival Breeze. The ship leaves from Port Canaveral in Orlando, Flordia and makes her stops at Amber Cove, St. Thomas, San Juan, and Grand Turk. On this cruise, we will visit FOUR different countries. I can not wait to explore the world and see the beauty it has to offer.

Cruises are SO much fun. I went to the Bahamas in October on the Carnival Elation and it was such a surreal experience. I was so scared at first to be out in the middle of the ocean. However, once you are on the ship, you forget all about it. There is so much to do onboard.

They have several different pools and hot tubs, movies, game nights, comedy shows, and many more. ***On a side note, I feel like I am in a commercial advertising Carnival Cruise Lines. You get to eat all you want when you want. You get free room service and a cabin stewardess cleans your cabin everyday. I was living the LIFE on my cruise.

Cruising was not always rainbows and butterflies. It turns out that I get really seasick. The cruise in October was a struggle when the waters were rough. They say you can not feel the waves, but I sure did.

Whenever the waters were rough, so was I. I had to take Dramamine every night of the cruise. Also, it was so hard to walk around when the waters were rough. You had to constantly hold on to something. It was like a bad hangover.

This go around I have patches to put behind my ear so the nausea won't be so bad, or at least I hope. The bigger the boat, the less likely you will feel the waves. I am hoping for that to be true. All in all, I am beyond ready for my toes to be in the sand and to feel the ocean's waves. Wish me luck, guys! See ya soon.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Be careful what you do and post

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
