A Local’s Guide to Aquidneck Island, Part One

Disclaimer: Aquidneck Island is a beautiful place to live, visit, and explore. However, before I begin breaking down the first part of my Local’s Guide, I would like you to consider reading this post I wrote. I feel that it is incredibly important to consider all aspects of wherever you happen to find yourself. It’s important to remember that while someone’s main concern may be choosing a dinner location or an activity to enjoy, someone else’s may be very different. That being said, part one of this Local’s Guide is breaking down all my favorite things to doon Aquidneck Island. ONE// The Norman Bird Sanctuary …

5 Investments Every Blogger Should Make

I’m sort of laughing as I write this post, because I’m not really a ‘blogger.’ When people hear that word they think subscribers, readers, sponsorships, instagram followers. I write things and I put them online because I like to do it, and if a couple people read it, (hi mom!) it feels nice. I have, however, been blogging for a little while now. There have been highs and lows- I’ve fought with a lot of code- and I’ve discovered five investments I feel every blogger must make. Even if you’re doing this for you, in the long run, these purchases…

#FYTP: Teaching in an Urban District

I’m starting off a new series here on the blog called #FYTP or more specifically, #FirstYearTeacherProblems. I’ll be recounting various elements of my first year of teaching in hopes that someone out there finds them entertaining or relatable. My high school graduating class was white. There’s really no other way to put it honestly and I find that when you say it bluntly like that, it catches people’s attention. For some, race is a part of a conversation you shouldn’t bring up at the dinner table. For me, I want to talk about it. When I went to college, I…

A Long Weekend in NYC, Part One

Up until I was thirteen, I knew the New York City subways by heart. My aunt and uncle had lived there for years and we’d visited so often, I fell in love with the city. I always pictured myself there- living and thriving in the rushed chaos of the crowds, and a part of me still wonders if I’ll end up there someday, if only for a small part of my life. I have to say, the way I used to feel when visiting NYC was totally renewed, and I really only spent 48 hours there. Friday – 8pm –…

Caitlin’s Confections: Chocolate Toffee and Almond Bark

The holidays are right around the corner. That being said, it is imperative to have a simple, easy, crowd pleasing dessert in your repertoire. I love cookies and believe a great pie can go a long way, but my go-to is always a candy bark. Quick, versatile, and oh-so good. Chocolate toffee bark is a classic. There’s really not much to it; it only takes four ingredients to make. However, for those with sweet teeth, it’s the perfect treat. The process is also fairly simple, compared to a lot of other candy making. I’ve tried caramel candies (and failed miserably)…

5 Necessities for a Night Out

We’re coming up on the time of year where it feels like there’s an event every weekend. It isn’t even truly the holiday season yet and I’m finding that my calendar is booked solid. That being said, getting ready for a night out can be a hassle, especially if you’re like me. Most nights, I’m a real homebody. I have a tried and true routine so that I’m presentable for work, but otherwise, I prefer to do less than nothing. I swear, for most of the winter, I live in my bathrobe. However, I have discovered a few things that save…
