Since my husband Marco and I celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary tomorrow, I thought this would be a great time to sit down and write a blog post on our story and how everything started.
On occasion, I get people asking me how we met and how we made long distance work. It’s a story I’ll always keep close to my heart, and because it’s lengthy, I usually rush through it and never do it justice. So here’s my attempt to document it in a way that I can come back to every once in a while to get all the feels. First, a little back story on how we met in the homeland and where our story began.

Are you planning a trip up the Northern Coast of California from San Fransisco? Or do you just want to get away with your friends or a loved one for the weekend?

Recently, I was blessed to work with The Inn at Newport Ranch up in Fort Bragg with a couple of my favourite bloggers. This was my first time visiting the Northern Coast of California, and staying at this beautiful ranch was the perfect way to get to know the area.



Because of the New Year and because it’s already been a whole year since I started my blog, I thought I’d recap a bit and share my thoughts and personal feelings with you. I’m thinking back to January 6th 2018, which was the day I launched my blog and my Instagram account for nessacarreira. 262 Instagram pictures and 22 blog posts later, I’m reflecting on my year and want to be real and tell you how I’ve been and why I took such a long break from social media near the end of 2018.


Going To Your First SoulCycle Class? Here’s What To Expect

A couple weeks ago I went in for my first ever cycling class. Since then I’ve gone again. I feel like it isn’t just a place where you sit on a bike and petal. It’s a whole experience and because of that I thought I’d share it with you and how it became my new favourite form of self-care.

5 Tips To Stay Healthy While Travelling

We’re all guilty of going on a trip and seeing it as a reason to slack off on the workouts and over indulging in everything we see because we’re on vacation. And that doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. I mean, if you’re in Italy for the first time, then you absolutely need to eat all of the pizza, pasta and gelato you can get your hands on. These tips are more for the people who need to stay on track to get to their goal or they’re about to go on a trip and just need to be reminded of all the things that will help them maintain a semblance of their routine.

7 Things I Learned Working as a Flight Attendant

I had the incredible experience of working as a Flight Attendant for a brief year and a half. I left the job because I moved down to California from Vancouver and there was no base where I moved to. It was a hard thing to do because even after all of the sleepless nights and sleepless flights, it was one of the best things I’ve ever done.

Lately I’ve been thinking back on flights I had worked on and looking at pictures from layovers. I’ve been thinking a lot about my whole time as an FA (flight attendant) and I decided to write a post on some of the things I’ve learned. Before getting the job, I had an idea about what the job would entail. But from my actual experience, I learned quite a bit from working up in the sky. Here are 7 things I learned while working as a flight attendant:

Gazelatini – Easy Valentine’s Day Cocktail

If you’re like me, going out for Valentine’s Day can seem like a lot of pressure. From getting ready, to going to the right restaurant and hoping their food and service don’t suffer from the hyped up holiday.

Or, you can just cozy up at home, make an awesome dinner, indulge in some strawberries dipped in chocolate and watch a movie on the couch. Because this to me sounds like the ideal situation for Valentine’s Day, I’m hoping it’s exactly what my Husband and I end up doing.

No matter who you spend Valentine’s Day with, make the most of it and just unwind with a glass of wine or a cocktail! Whether it’s your significant other, friend/s, or relative, coming up with a cocktail for Valentine’s Day can be a fun way to get the evening going!
