Hi all! My name is Annaliese -- but most of the time I just stick with Anna. I'm excited to report that I'll be contributing content on Glam.com and GlamNest. But before I start blogging about home, food, travel, and design, I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself...
I am a recent graduate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I majored in communication. As much as I enjoyed living at home for a few months after graduation, I decided to pack back up and experience life in the Big Apple! So, here I am!
Here are a few of my favorite things:
â€¢ Boston. (After all, home is where the heart is.)
â€¢ Living in and exploring NYC!
â€¢ Thanksgiving... there are few things that beat a day of delicious home-cooked food, family bonding, frequent (and appropriate) nap sessions, football, and good movies!
â€¢ My chocolate lab, Tucker, who makes Marley look like an angel.
â€¢ Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream with chocolate sprinkles... Actually, I love dessert in general.
â€¢ A Girls Night In... what's better than enjoying homemade guacamole, margaritas, good TV, and great company... especially in your PJs!
â€¢ The month of December. Along with all of the other reasons to celebrate... It is also my birthday month!
â€¢ Traveling, traveling, and more traveling. Whether it's a plane ride to Australia for four months (my favorite country on earth!) or a road trip for a weekend... it's always exciting to experience new things! I guess it's apropos that I'm in a long distance relationship!
â€¢ Sandwiches loaded with avocado, hummus, or sun-dried tomatoes.
â€¢ The color green (Go green!).
â€¢ Releasing stress during a nice jog at sunset... or releasing toxins at a hot yoga class (my new addiction).
â€¢ A good read is always worthwhile... any suggestions?
â€¢ Family vacations! Just recently, we traveled to Austria (where we have family) with a group of twenty of us! We spent the days skiing the Alps and the nights bonding over food, drinks, and a good game of Catch Phrase!
â€¢ A refreshing iced coffee... Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
â€¢ A well-earned shopping spree... the only thing better than spending money you don't have, is spending money you do have!
