Life In Boca Raton, Florida

Located in south east Florida, Boca Raton has been my home for the past 13 years of my life. Honestly, I wasn't too sure if I was going to like it since I was new and didn't know many people in the area and had to begin a whole new journey here. As a New Yorker, I was used to the genuine friendliness of everyone you'd pass by and if they didn't like you, you would know. In Florida, everyone wants to know all your information and then they never talk to you again. People here are different, but if you encounter the right ones, you're set.

Every city/town in Florida is very unique, but I think Boca Raton is my favorite. You've got a mix of cultures here: there's a big Brazilian, Colombian, and Haitian population. Oh, and even if you don't live in Florida, you know that the Jewish community is pretty well known. If you're hungry, you can try a mix of many flavors and cultures in each restaurant that you set foot in.

The west side of Boca is definitely a whole different ball game than the east side and with Boca being such a big town, there's so much to explore and I have yet to cover every inch. One of my favorite spots to go to is Mizner Park in East Boca (See the picture below). You've got music, food, bars, and shops. Oh, and people actually have apartments there too! It's a lively area on the weekends and if you're lucky, you could run into a celebrity like Adam Sandler ;).

I've always thought Boca Raton was a beautiful place, but sometimes I have to stop and really appreciate my surroundings. If you're looking for a great place to visit or vacation in, I would suggest Boca! Who doesn't want to have the beach so close to them?!

Royal Caribbean: Allure of the Seas experience

I just came back from my week long cruise on the Allure of the Seas and let me tell you, this was such an amazing cruise ship! If I could bring every single person on this planet on this cruise ship, I would. I had such a fun time with my family and created new friendships and that's the beauty of cruises, they bring everyone together.

Central Park:  So, they had a "central park" on the ship and that was probably one of my favorite parts of the ship. (The photo above is me in front of the entrance). It had restaurants, stores, string lights, a Rising Tide bar, and picturesque plants and statues.

Cruise Activities:  There were so many things to do on this ship that you could never be bored. Clubs, zip lining, FlowRider, carousel, ping pong, mini golf, basketball, pool, karaoke, zumba, spa, musicals,  comedy shows, shopping, the casino and more! Seriously, you have something to do at all times, including eating copious amounts of food.

Dining:  Ok, so I wasn't thoroughly…

10 Questions From Pretty Little Liars We Still Want Answers To

The series finale of Pretty Little Liars left everyone with mixed reactions, but mostly I've seen some angry comments and many were disappointed with how it ended. Still so many plot holes and after 7 years, you would think we have all of our questions answered. Here are 10 questions we still want answers to:

1. What happened to Aria's brother?

2. Why wasn't he at the wedding?

3. Why did the horse figure out it wasn't Spencer before her own friends?

4. When Ezra first met Aria at the bar, he knew she was Ali's friend. Did he know Aria's true age then or did he not find out that Ali was a teenager?

5. What happened to Melissa?

6. How did Spencer kill Wren?

7. Did Alison and Emily find out that Wren is the father of their children?

8. Who was Bethany Young?

9. Who was "he" when the girls came running into Ali's classroom saying "he's coming".

10. Who kidnapped the girls during the Dollhouse episode?

I'm really upset about the endi…
