Savannah, Georgia

Savannah is a gorgeous coastal city that has stunningΒ parks, homes that occupy moss-lined streets, delicious Southern food, and a fun nightlife. I visited Savannah this summer in mid July for a bachelorette party. I went a day early on Thursday and stayed for a long weekend. I had been wanting to visit Savannah for such a long time and was so excited when it was decided on for a girls weekend. We had such a…

The Big Easy

The Big Easy is an always lively city known for it’s rich history, unique nightlife, live music scene, and delicious food. I spent my last weekend of summer vacation in this glorious city and am finally sharing my NOLA recap. I’ve been to New Orleans several times before, all for different purposes. Regardless of the reason, it’s always a good time. Sometimes so much so, that you may miss your early morning flight home. Oops!…

The American Riviera

In the Spring I traveled to the American Riviera or Santa Barbara. You may have read about the first half of my Spring Break trip which include some time in The City by the Bay and a road trip through Big Sur down into stunning Santa Barbara. I road tripped along with my best friend from high school who lives in Saint Helena and one of her friends from college who lives in San Francisco. I…

The Big Apple

Checking your e-mail in the morning is not always the most exciting task. Checking it when you have an e-mail telling you that you and a girlfriend are being sent to New York City really changes that. Receiving an e-mail from Pantene and Bloglovin’ telling me that they were covering mine and a girlfriend’s airfare, ground transportation, and hotels for a weekend in one of my favorite cities was something I had to read three times…

City by the Bay

I adore San Fransisco. The scenery, the food, the hills, the sites, the lifestyle. The City by the Bay has my heart for sure. It’s such a perfect little weekend trip or not-too-far-away getaway destination. It doesn’t help that it’s just a few hours South of the wonderful Napa Valley either. Over my Spring Break (yup, I still get one. Go ahead and hate me!) I met one of my best friends from high school…

NYC recap

I’ve finally accepted that each time I go to NYC, I’ll leave wanting more. I’ve experienced it playing complete tourist (how can you not?) and I’ve experienced it from a local perspective when visiting friends who have moved there. Regardless, I love it. I love the people watching. I love the food. I love the energy, the magic of the calm in Central Park, the IDGAF attitude, and the fact that it humbles you. Just…

DC + Philly Recap

Having two weeks off of work each year for Christmas and New Years is truly a blessing. It makes planning travel around the holidays that much easier. This year, we had a wedding to attend in Ocean City, Maryland the weekend before Christmas. Since we both already had the time of off work, we decided to make the most of our flight and extend our trip. Following the wedding, we drove into Washington DC on…

Santiago travel guide + recap

We ended our time in South America in Santiago, Chile. Half of the country’s population calls Santiago home. It is a beautiful city nestled between the Andes mountains and the Pacific Ocean making any view in the city a good one. Santiago is more than just a pretty face though. There are a number of renovated neighborhoods that offer stylish galleries, cafes, museums and parks, as well as a thriving culinary scene throughout the city.…

Wine Me

Wine me, dine me. Simple methods to win my heart. After having been wine tasting together in Napa and Tuscany, we knew we couldn’t be so close to Argentina’s wine country (another of the world’s Great Capitals of Wine) without making it a destination. Set just below the Andes, Mendoza is a lively metropolitan area that is home to a little over a million people. The altitude and elevation in Mendoza is key to creating…

Iguazu Falls travel recap + guide

Iguazu Falls has been named one of the seven natural world wonders and visiting will allow anyone to understand why. Iguazu Falls are the second largest in the world. The meeting of the waters serve as the border between Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. Each country has a city on the river with access to the Iguazu River. However, the falls can best be seen from the Argentina and Brazil sides. Each of these two sides…

Buzios travel recap + guide

Buzios should change it’s name to Paraiso, meaning paradise in Portuguese. My research tells me that Buzios means diver or fisher, which was appropriate at the time. However, once this fishing village turned into a weekend getaway destination, I think that paradise better describes it. Our weekend trip to this stunning beach town could not have come at a more perfect time. We had just finished two weeks of having back to back visits from…

Rio recap + travel guide

City meets beach town all with the Brasilian culture mixed in? Yes please. Rio quickly exceeded all of my expectations. I arrived to the view below and immediately felt like l needed someone to pinch me (or maybe even slap me). It felt so unreal to get to really experience the view I’d seen countless times in pictures. I’ve been to Rio three separate times so far during my time in Brasil. The first was…
