January 2017


As a 4th year medical student we do a lot of traveling for residency interviews. If you are lucky to live in the continental US you might find that traveling is a bit easier and less exhausting BUT! If you live in PR and you plan to do your residency in the states, you will find yourself traveling a lot more in one year than you’ve probably done in your life! As the interview trail kept getting longer I found myself being way more efficient in what to pack in my carry-on for these short trips. So I’ve compiled a list of items that I find essential for traveling.
  • Medical Labs Hydrating Calming Facial Mist – the air in the plane gets dry and musty which wrecks havoc on our complexions, you can spray a bit of this mist while on the plane to arrive refreshed at your destination.
  • Swell water bottle – hydration on the go wherever you are, stays cold for up to 24 hours!
  • Ray-Ban New Wayfarer sunglasses – in case you need to drive and look cool in the pictures 😉
  • Berry Blossom EOS Hand Lotion – very useful in the Winter when our skin gets extra dry.
  • EOS lip balm – another MUST-HAVE during Winter when lips get extra chapped.
  • Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths – to rid yourself of facial impurities on-the-go.
  • Band aids – you never know when you might need them and they are a life saver if your shoes don’t fit properly in the back.
  • Neck pillow – for a comfortable nap in-flight.
  • Bose noise cancelling headphones – to block everything out and enjoy the plane ride.
  • And finally for entertainment purposes remember to pack your cellphone, a book, notebook and pen 🙂

Let’s Begin

New year, new adventures! So it’s 2017 and I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and begin blogging. I’ve always wanted to share my thoughts and likes and what better way to do this than to begin blogging?! Here at Life-Lust we aim to celebrate all those little pleasures in life that we love so much. Our love for travel, home decor, books, cinema, baking and so much more is what drives us.

This new year brings with it many exciting things. Personally, it is a year of many changes, I am finally graduating medical school, my roommate and I got 2 wonderful puppies, and I will probably move to a new and exciting place and begin my training. I am very hopeful about the future and look forward to lots of travel, foodie adventures, and everything in between.

Welcome to the blog! Let’s all embrace those little things we crave.
