AFFORDABLE CLEANING AND HANDY HELP IN MANHATTAN AND BEYOND


Happy Mid-Week, Everyone!


Being a single lady who has lived on my own in big cities, most recently in New York City, sometimes it can be hard to find affordable and trustworthy people to help you with things around your apartment or to help clean when you are busy working, which is a must when living in the city.


Now, this is not to say that we ladies can't handle a lot of these things on our own, we are smart and capable after all, but some things need more than one person, aren't quite our forte or, let's face it, we just don't ant or have to time do, and this is where Handy comes in. 


They instantly match thousands of customers each week with trusted professionals in cities all around the world. Booking with them is quick with a secure payment service and 100% money-back guarantee, which makes it easy, affordable and convenient.

So, for all my fellow blogger and fashionable friends in the NYC area, whether you are in need of a Manhattan cleaning service, a handyman, help moving, furniture assembly (we've all had those IKEA deliveries in multiple pieces), interior painting, storage solutions or more, they might just be able to help.


I'm all about ways to help others and affordable options in life, so, I want to share them with all of you.  


Have any of you used them before?  If so, please share your experience in the comments below!
I'm all about a little sense of humor and the above flow chart is classic! :)  
Handy App makes it super easy to schedule or make changes on the go.

TRAVEL DIARY: DAY IN SEDONA, ARIZONA ON A RED ROCKS ADVENTURE


Happy Monday, Blogland!

Visiting Sedona, Arizona has been on my Ladder List, my name for a Bucket List, for some time and this summer I got to do just that.  While visiting my best friend from college for a few days, we took a road trip to Sedona for a fun day trip!

It truly was a beautiful trip and such a charming area.  The Red Rocks are far more vivid than I had imagined and although it was hot, it was still such a great place to explore.

Our adventure included walking through the town, enjoying a quick lunch with a view, taking a trolly tour of the red rocks, visiting a beautiful church on the hill and a refreshing smoothie before calling it a day.

Without further ado, I present our Sedona adventure Travel Diary!

TRAVEL DIARY: SCENIC DRIVE FROM UTAH TO FUN TIMES IN SCOTTSDALE, AZ


Happy Thursday, Everyone!


On the next part of my road trip we headed from time in the beautiful state of Utah through Nevada and onto Scottsdale, Arizona.


The roads through these parts of the US truly are natural wonders of beauty.  Once we made it to Scottsdale, we visited one of my mother's lovely friend from college and her husband.  


They were the perfect hosts and showed us all around the area.  Arizona is just full of very unique cactus at every turn that are hundreds of years old, beautiful blue skies, a number of lovely golf courses and pretty sunsets.


We enjoyed some great conversation, shared wonderful wine, cozy cocktails and marvelous meals, including a fantastic dinner at Constantino's, a part of Desert Mountain's Golf Club resort.

One of my favorite memories from our time with them was a fun, late night sing along by the piano, where I got to revisit my love for singing and broadway show tunes, and enjoy a little coffee with a kick Kahlúa. The perfect way to end a fun-filled visit and day with some wonderful people! 


OK, picture time!  Enjoy!
