Long-distance friendships arise from many different situations. Whether it’s someone you met during grade school and one of you moved away; or it’s someone you met during college who’s from a different area; or it’s someone you met during your travels, and you’re not staying in the destination long. Whatever the reason, it’s someone you want to remain friends and it won’t be easy to see each other on a regular basis. I know the struggle of trying to maintain long-distance friendships, so I’m sharing three tips to keep those relationships going strong! Continue reading “3 Tips for Long-Distance Friendships”
It’s official! This girl is headed to Japan in November with two friends. To say that I’m excited would definitely be an understatement.

Travel blogging consists of a variety of aspects – some that I didn’t really think about when I entered into the blogging community. Not only do you have to possess a deep passion for travelling, you also have to incorporate the various aspects of social media, writing/editing skills, and of course, photography skills. For me, each day that I work on my blog consists of stepping out of my comfort zone, especially when it comes to my photography skills. Continue reading “Photo Shoot Attempt in Orlando”

Are you a space fanatic? Do you love learning about other planets? Come check out my day at the Kennedy Space Center!
I’m down in Orlando, Florida for about a week visiting my cousin, and taking a vacation before everything starts back up in August. In searching for things we should do, we came across the Kennedy Space Center on GroupOn. We both were curious as to what this attraction had to offer, so we purchased tickets on Sunday morning, and headed about an hour away to Cape Canaveral to explore the Kennedy Space Center.
I’ll be honest – my expectations were high, as I’d only heard and read great things. This is important to note, as it might be part of the reason I feel the way I do. Continue reading “A Day at the Kennedy Space Center”

Welcome back to Life with Larissa! In the second part of the two-part series of our Florida trip, we focus on our trip to Universal! You can read about our trip to Disney the previous day here. So the day after Disney, my sister, Brit, and I headed to Universal Orlando with our cousin, JoJo, and her co-worker, Ashton. We had the park-to-park admission tickets, so we decided to tackle Islands of Adventure first. As you know, I’m not a roller coaster fan, so I hung out by my lonesome a couple of times while they all decided to ride the more thrilling rides. The first ride they rode was the Hulk. JoJo and Ashton tried to convince me to go on it, but after Ashton described it as ‘shooting us out’, I immediately declined. Continue reading “Universal Orlando for the Day”
A few weekends ago, my sister, Brit, and I were able to travel to Orlando, Florida. We were meeting up with one of our long-time friends for one day, and staying with our cousin for the rest of the days. We also had the opportunity to visit both Disney World and Universal Studios while down there. It was my sister’s first time in both parks, so it was exciting to see her reactions while experiencing the parks. In this two part series of our adventures, you’ll read about our experiences at the parks! This post is dedicated to our time at Disney World! Continue reading “Disney World for the Day”
