What makes me different?

I'm an influencer myself! I run my own blog and social media accounts, focused on travel. I look forward to connecting with you. Connect with my blog on Perlu.

With a Masters degree in English, one of my best strengths is writing and editing articles for my blog. After living abroad in Australia for 16 months, I developed a desire to see the world and write about it!


My blog is focused on giving people tips and tricks to save money and get the most out of their traveling experiences. You'll notice that I focus a lot on food, animals, craft beer, and budget tips. Located in Central New York State, I often feature events and places in New York from a local's perspective.

You are not alone. It’s no secret that I love a good mural. I’ve been known to pull my car over on multiple occasions to photograph street art when I see it. But what I love even more is public art with an important message. On a recent trip to Rochester, I was struck by this incredible mural on the side the Times Square building. After pulling our car into the parking lot to take a closer look, I learned that this mural was created to support people who are victims of domestic violence. The mural, Stories of Strength, was created by @msshaftway in collaboration with @willowcenterny. Sarah interviewed for domestic violence survivors while working on the design for this mural. The windows and the birds in this piece symbolize the struggle, the hope, the freedom that survivors face. It’s incredibly powerful. #storiesofstrengthROC While I was struck by the beauty of the mural itself, the message really hit home. I’ve made a point to be open and honest through my content. I’ve talked a lot about mental health awareness and my own struggles, particularly after losing my brother-in-law to suicide last year. But one thing I don’t talk about a lot is an abusive family member that I grew up with. I’m still not comfortable sharing details publicly, and I don’t know if I ever will be. But I do know that what I dealt with is nowhere near as awful as what other people have. My heart goes out to all of the people who are victims of domestic violence. It’s important to know that you are loved. You are important. And it’s not okay to have to be afraid in your own home. There are several 24/7 hotlines that are free and confidential. In Rochester: Call 585-222-SAFE Text 585-324-SAFE In Syracuse: 315-468-3260 (Vera House) The National Domestic Violence Hotline is 1-800-799-SAFE. If you are ever in immediate danger, call 911. Even if it’s to just “order a pizza”. As always my DMs are open to anyone who needs someone to talk to.

Three Lives Bar in Syracuse: The Coolest Place to Drink & Play Games

Jon Page came up with the idea based on his love of craft drinks and video games. Because there is such a strong focus on the drinks and games, the food menu is pretty simple. Now it’s time to talk about the heart of it all – the games! With the great food, drinks, staff, and overall experience, it’s a must for any local’s date night, happy hour, or late night with friends.

Happy National Cocktail Day! Last week I had the chance to sit down with Jon Page and Josh DeSantis, owner and head bartender at @threelivesbar in Armory Square. Let me tell you, this place is SO COOL! The bar/restaurant/arcade is retro in the best way possible. Everything is themed off of video games and other gamer favorites - classic arcade games, @nintendo, @xbox, @twitch, @pokemon ... Josh has put together an incredible cocktail menu, designed as elixirs, tinctures, potions, and power-ups. While enjoying food and drinks, guests can check out the arcade games, watch the Twitch streams on the TVs above the bar, or rent an Xbox controller and play for themselves! Head over to the blog to read more about one of my new favorite places downtown. . . . #syracuse #nationalcocktailday #downtown #downtownsyracuse #cuse #syracuseny #cocktails #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktailbar #gamingbar #barcade #arcadebar #nerdlife #gamerlife #eatlocal #drinklocal #nintendo #arcade #arcadegames #bubblebobble #twitchgamer #videogames #videogamer #newyork #iloveny #visitsyracuse

Maple Weekend in New York Goes Virtual

But while maple weekend in New York is cancelled in person, you can still stock up on syrup and enjoy breakfast at home with virtual programs. It’s that 2% that we use to make into that delicious syrup that tops your pancakes on Sunday morning. After the syrup has reached the proper temperature, it’s time to filter out any sediment. Visitors can check out what’s going on in the sugar shack and sample freshly boiled syrup.
