Cozumel Travel Tips

Cozumel Travel Tips

Cozumel is one of my favorite tropical travel destinations. My family and I have been visiting the island for years and I’d consider it one of our go-to vacation spots.

If you don’t know where Cozumel is, it’s in Mexico right off the coast of Playa Del Carmen and southeast of Cancun. The island is about 250 square miles and inhabits over 100,000 people.

It's a great vacation spot because it's easy to get to, pretty affordable and tourist-friendly. 

So, if you're looking for a place to spend an upcoming vacation, read on to learn more about places to stay and things to do in Cozumel, Mexico.

5 Things You Probably Shouldn't Say As An Intern

5 Things You Probably Shouldn't Say As An Intern

While I was an undergraduate, I had three different internships before transitioning into a full-time position. If you read my post last week, you know that shared all the details on How I Went From Intern to Employee in 8 Days. Now that I've been a part of the workforce for four years, I've had the opportunity to work with interns and serve as a mentor. 

*Disclaimer: These are all real things that I or coworkers of mine have heard out of the mouth of real interns. I realize that these were all said in specific situations and I'm not attributing these statements to all working young adults/interns. Also, please note that the GIFs in this post are for comedic purposes. I'm really not this dramatic in real life.

Baewatch: A Millennial Lifeguarding Love Story

When I started this blog I knew that I wanted to write about things in the lifestyle, travel and career categories, but I want to make sure that I share some personal stories and experiences with my readers as well.

Why I Love to Travel

Why I Love to Travel

One of my favorite sayings is "travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer." Based on my past travel experiences, I can definitely say that this is a true statement for me. If I have money to spend, most of the time I want to save it for upcoming travel plans. 

I'm the type of person that loves looking at destinations on travel websites. If I see a place that catches me eye, I price out what it would cost for a week long stay. Getting an idea of the costs involved with traveling gets me motivated to save up so I can go to all of the beautiful places I've heard about from family and friends or destinations that I've read about online. 

Today I wanted to share with you why I love to travel.

4 Tips To Help You Write Engaging Content

4 Tips To Help You Write Engaging Content

I have always had a knack for writing. Back in middle school and high school I excelled in my English classes and I never had a problem writing essays or long papers in college. Math and science are not my thing and I never cared for those subjects as much as I care about English. 

Knowing that I liked writing so much, I decided to major in journalism in college. After getting my degree, I landed a job at an advertising, marketing and digital communications agency. While I worked at this job, I wrote a lot of different content. Press releases, social media copy, emails, newsletters - you name it!

17 Work From Home Jobs For Millennials

17 Work From Home Jobs For Millennials

Okay, millennials, when you think about your dream job, what does it entail? Do you see yourself wearing expensive dress attire and working on the top floor of a high-rise building downtown? Do you see yourself completing your daily responsibilities in a laid back office environment? Or, do you see yourself rolling out of bed in the morning, firing up your laptop and working in your pajamas? I know, I know, not all people who work remotely stay in their PJ's every day, but indulge me a little. 

Working remotely has become increasingly popular over the last few years. This is in part due to advancements and innovations in technology. Employees are able to connect with each other using email, instant messaging, texting, video conferencing and more.

Get a Crash Course in Adulting with Help from Century 21 Real Estate

Get a Crash Course in Adulting with Help from Century 21 Real Estate

As a young 20-something, I'll be the first to admit that this adulting stuff can be difficult. I can't tell you how many times I've called my parents in the middle of a grocery store or after opening a bill in the mail to ask for help or guidance. Growing up in school we're taught about things like the Pythagorean theorem or the periodic table of elements (both of which I have never used in my daily adult life).

Where are the lessons on the things that really matter like how to balance a checkbook or do your laundry without making the colors run together? What are you supposed to do when your office dress code is "business casual" but you don't even know what that means? And personal finance? Where do you even begin with that? A 401k sounds like a busy expressway in a major U.S. city, not a retirement necessity.
