First Bite: an aspiring gastronome’s introduction to italian comfort food

Reflections : A Year in the Life of Cozy

Reflections : A Year in the Life of Cozy

It’s not about the destination, they say. It’s about the journey. To be aimless is not to wander or be lost, it is to be present in your journey. Indeed these words, shamelessly paraphrased from a Saturday morning yoga class, left me inspired to reflect […]

Tokyo Living: Surviving in the Metropolis

Tokyo Living: Surviving in the Metropolis

Long time no see Cozy followers! Apologies for my recent and abrupt absence this month. While I’ve been busy juggling a real life with Cozy life, I never like to disappoint. Which is why, during an international business trip to my favorite city, I went […]

French Comfort Food Steeped in Tradition (and Wine)

French Comfort Food Steeped in Tradition (and Wine)

Before departing for Paris I knew little to nothing about France or French culture other than my only totally one hundred percent accurate and reliable reference called Hollywood…But I was lucky enough to have a chat with a few local Parisians, old friends and new, […]

Eating My Way Through Montmartre

Eating My Way Through Montmartre

College Cozy: Cambridge Cafes To Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

I don’t know about you, but in college sweat pants and coffee ruled the world – even before wearing ethically-sourced-over-priced track pants and posting overhead shots of lattes and succulents for no apparent reason was a thing. I still cringe remembering students march up to […]

Cambridge: Home of Intellects and Cozy Independents

Cambridge: Home of Intellects and Cozy Independents

So here we are, my final stop in Cambridge, England. Alma mater to some of the world’s most brilliant minds who were bestowed with the gift of intellect. These are not your perfect SAT Score everyday genius’ – we’re talking Stephen Hawking smart, the guy […]

York: Come for the History, but what about the Food?

York: Come for the History, but what about the Food?

As much as I didn’t want to leave my new beloved, Durham and Northern England, it was time for a scenic train ride south to York for a quick pit stop. I’m going to be up front with you on this one, despite having read […]

Fish and Chips: A Comfort Food Ritual

Fish and Chips: A Comfort Food Ritual

Amble England’s cobblestoned streets, cross centuries-old bridges, and wander through celebrated covered markets.
