Easy Ways to Save for Your Dream Vacation

March 22, 2017

I’ve always been a wanderer at heart. Whether it be flying across the world to see the Great Pyramids of Giza, taking the train down to Washington, DC, or simply walking out my backdoor to see if anything new is going on in my city, I’ve been incredibly lucky to see so much this world has to offer.

But now that I’ve been working full-time for the past few years, it’s definitely a little more difficult to be sporadic when it comes to traveling–both time-wise and expense-wise. And while I’m the first to admit that I’ a bit of a shopaholic (I’m looking at you Sephora and Amazon Prime), if you put your mind to it saving for your dream vacation will become a breeze!

Five Museums You Have to Visit While in Washington, DC

February 10, 2017

I’m the first to admit that I’m a huge museum nerd. I usually revolve trips I take around restaurants I want to try and museums I want to spend a few hours exploring, which I’m not even embarrassed to admit!

What I love about museums is that they’re not just for people who like art or design, but instead are institutions that have been set up to teach people about the culture and history of either their own society or another peoples’ lives–which I think is incredibly important in this day and age.

A Rainy Weekend in Atlanta

January 27, 2017

Happy Friday guys!

I basically only got through this week by fueling myself with green smoothies, podcasts, and the occasional Diet Coke, but we’re almost to the weekend! I’m flying out tonight for another weekend trip, this time to Washington, DC, to see one of my closest friends from growing up and to check out a few museums along the way.

Last weekend though, I was down in Atlanta and although it rained almost the entire time I was totally fine with that since it was a whole 30 degrees warmer down south than it’s been in Connecticut for the past two weeks!

Snapshots of Charleston: Turkey Trot 2016

November 30, 2016

Not going to lie, I think that I’m still in a bit of a food coma from Thanksgiving! I probably ate enough turkey and mashed potatoes to feed an entire family but as we all know, calories don’t count on Thanksgiving (or your birthday, Christmas, etc.) so it’s all good.

We also started Thanksgiving morning with a 5k run through downtown Charleston and although I was feeling a little slow after the wine I’d drunken the night before, the weather was just too gorgeous to be groggy for long.

Halloween Weekend in Beacon Hill

November 18, 2016

I feel like I failed a bit this year since I didn’t actually dress up for Halloween this year… Even worse is that there weren’t ANY trick-or-treaters in my apartment complex!! Which I guess wasn’t the worst thing ever since it meant that I got to keep all of the candy to myself but still, I love seeing all of the little ones dressed up.

The weekend before Halloween, on the other hand, I was much more festive. My sister and I spent the weekend in Boston and even spent the weekend in what’s supposed to be the most haunted hotel in New England. Not that we knew that fact at the time but I’m still counting it since we slept directly above what’s considered one of the most haunted rooms in the hotel!

10 Places That I’d Love to Visit Someday

August 29, 2016

I’ve always loved traveling and I’m constantly coming up with future travel plans, even if it’s just in my mind. Which means that I love finding new travel bloggers to follow on Instagram and live vicariously through them. I even have a map tapestry above my bed to remind myself that there’s more to life than scoring a really good deal on heels at DSW or binge watching Law & Order: SVU.

This past year I’ve been incredibly lucky travel-wise, with my hiking trip through Peru, 4th of July in Los Angeles, and many weekends spent in New York City, and I’m looking forward to the rest of 2016 and what 2017 has in store for me.
