Keep hustling for your dreams, my friends! I've gotten asked many times over the years if I would do everything again and go into medicine. My answer is YES! EVERY 💉SINGLE 💉TIME! I can't see myself being anything else other than a doctor, and it gets more rewarding every year as you gain more responsibilities and finesse the ART of medicine. If this is what you want to do with your life, do not listen to the naysayers or be intimidated by the time it will take. Time will pass anyways ⏰! 👩🏼‍⚕️👩🏾‍⚕️👨🏻‍⚕️👨🏽‍⚕️👨🏿‍⚕️👩🏻‍⚕️
T and I made it in the nick of time for the last batch of apple-picking! 🍂🍎🍏We have a pumpkin to carve and a pie to bake tonight 🎃 But for now, hot apple cider with Hocus Pocus! #fallfun #applepicking #applepie #hocuspocus #fall #autumnactivities
Great recipe for roasted butternut squash soup by @cookieandkate 🍁🍂 Fall is in the house! It's so delicious and prepped for the week 🤗 #fallfood #recipes #soup
Just picked up some cute pieces @nordstrom this week. Ten points goes to these new jeans - they're super soft and have a raw cut edge. If you like Paige's line of soft denim (❤) these are for you but a fraction of the cost 🙌🏼 Further details on the blog! #liketkit @liketoknow.it Shop your screenshot of this pic with the LIKEtoKNOW.it ap http://liketk.it/2sUmR
Happy International Coffee Day!!☕️💃🏼 I typically don't drink much coffee (gasp! Yes, even in residency - I run on smiles and anxiety 🤣🤗) but I've been loving the new Maple Pecan Latte @starbucks 🙌🏼 What's your favorite coffee drink? Maybe I'll try some new flavors this weekend!
I hope this weather stays around for another few weeks! 🔥🌞🌞🌞 I finally got to wear my lace-up skorts & do some shopping after work 💃🏼 What is everyone up to this weekend? I have a golden, so I'm hoping for lots of studying & some beach time 📚📝⛱
Finally posted my travel photo diary on the blog 🙌🏼 I'm ready for vacation again 🏖😋 #portugal #portugal_em_fotos #nazare #anthropologie
Does anyone get that post-vacation depressed feel? 😭🌧 I've been missing all my family and Portugal so so much! 👨‍👩‍👧 How did it get so cold here in Cleveland? Fall hit me like a truck when I got back 🚛🚨🍁(I shed a small tear as I packed all my shorts and skirts). What about you guys?! Sending a big thanks to @christinezay and @bilalsaqi for spending time with me this weekend so I wouldn't mope by myself (even though they're both on crazy ICU rotations ❤👊🏽 #therealmvps) PS. I've been glued to the live stream of Hurricane Irma - it's horrifying. Sending lots of love and prayers to the Florida residents and those living in the Caribbean. American Red Cross (text IRMA to 90999) and Apple via iTunes allow for easy donations to help 🤝
Fortaleza, Portugal 🏰During our trip we spent a day in this fortress at Valença. It was first built in the 13th century, with multiple upgrades and repairs after battles during the next few hundreds years. The views over the Minho River are amazing! 🏞 There is a small town inside the fortress which is where we spent a lot of time exploring (and eating 🥘🥖🥗😁). A must visit if you're in Northern Portugal! 🇵🇹
Aveiro, Portugal 🇵🇹 It looks like a mini-Venice and there are a ton of esplanades with cafes, restos and shopping! It was such a gorgeous city and the weather was beautiful 🌞🌈 My main people (hey mum & dad 🤗) joined me in stuffing my face with Gelados de Portugal. They're unique flavors of ice cream replicating traditional dishes. I have to say, my mom's Castanha com Vinho do Porto was THE BEST!!! Yes, chestnuts with port wine ice cream is DELICIOUS! 🌰🍷There are 12 flavors in their arsenal so if you're in the country please stalk it down 🔎
Yesterday I spent the day in Vigo, Spain! I had a great time, ate delicious steak and stocked up on fun leather shoes!! 💃🏼👠👯❤
Nazaré was beautiful 🇵🇹🏖😍 I can't believe I hadn't ventured there in the decades my family & I have been traveling to Portugal! For those of you who love water sports, Nazaré is one of the world's biggest surfing hubs. The largest waves documented at this location are over 100ft, and the world record for the biggest wave surfed was in Nazaré (by surfer Garrett McNamara's in 2011 with a 78-foot wave) 😱🌊🏄🏻
Our day in Porto was perfect yesterday! The luggage arrived early in the morning, and we were doing port wine tastings and boat rides by the afternoon. Great food, great shopping, and beautiful architecture & landscapes! 🍷🇵🇹👠👨🏽‍🍳
Day 1 in Portugal is complete! Besides our luggage being lost (come back to meeeeee) we had a packed schedule the minute we landed ⏰🗓 Endless meat, fish, wine and traditional folklore dancing will end any day on a high note! 💃🏼🍷🥘 #portugal #vianadocastelo #vianaéamor #santoinho #portugal_em_fotos #portugalguide
Less than a week before my trip to Portugal!! 💃🏼🌴☕️🍾🥘🥖 #portugal #porto #portwine #douroriver
I went to the @clevelandflea for the first time today, and I'm kicking myself for not having gone earlier. 😱👌🏼It's amazing! Full of handmade art, stationary and jewelry, lots of wicked clothes and tons of vintage pieces to pick from. I only wished my boyfriend was here so I could have brought some chairs and tables with me!💪🏼🕺🏻 Anywho, I stopped by the @revivalbodycare booth because I had remembered seeing these items in a few magazines before, and I'm totally loving the lip scrub. I can't believe I haven't tried this before. Bonus, no burning or irritation to my healing cold sore. Lips are so soffft 😍❤👯 Get it!!! #latetothegame #clevelandflea #skincare #cleveland #lifestyleblogger #claymask #lipscrub #revivalbodycare #residencylife #pgy2 #medstudent #premed #doctorlife
Finally on a rotation where I have small pockets of time to read! 🙌🏼 There are currently 3 books on rotation at the moment thanks to @helene.elle and @cmcoving (money & thrillers) 📚 I spent all of July in the MICU and it was an amazing learning experience because of the autonomy you get as a PGY-2, but friends, by week 4 I was tired and ready to leave ⏰😂 What are all of you up to this month?! I'll be studying and doing some research, then off to Europe 🛫 So excited!! (PS. Book in photo is from the Lunar Chronicles aka when you roll classic fairy tales, the Terminator and Star Wars all into one series 👌🏼) #lifestyleblogger #cleveland #pgy2 #residencylife #internalmedicine #medstudent #medschool #ootd #lunarchronicles #readersofinstagram #premed #doctorlife #doctor
Discovered another Cleveland staple today: Sokolowski's! A Polish restaurant in Tremont that was founded in 1923 😱 and has great food 👌🏼 It was the first time I had stuffed cabbage and I can't wait to go back for more! 🤤 #cleveland #tremont #sokolowskis #theclevelander #POTD #polishfood
I love working nights 🦉 I've been a night owl since I was young, so this schedule is amazing. It also means I get more time to meal prep, study and plan! 🎒🥗📝 This broccoli pasta is a staple for my meal preps - I've gotten so many great recipes from @lisalorles (a fellow Canadian who is studying nutrition at uni)! #residencylife #pgy2 #medstudent #medschool #cleveland #lifestyleblogger #mealprep #veganrecipes #planneraddict #doctorlife
