Why Mexico City Should Be The Next Trip You Make

Why Mexico City Should Be The Next Trip You Make

My sister and brother in law were actually the masterminds behind this impromptu trip to Mexico City. They planned a much-needed family vacation for our side of the family. Both my sister and I travel more often with our in-laws so it was nice to do this one trip with our mom! They are both travel gurus and go to the most incredible places and always find the best insider tips. Sahir and I knew that this trip would be one that we would have to do little to no planning and everything would be perfect because those two are amazing when it comes to this kinda thing…

9 Things To Avoid When You Visit San Francisco

9 Things To Avoid When You Visit San Francisco

It’s safe to say that I’m well versed in SF tourism. After visiting nearly annually for the better part of a decade, I have seen most of the sights and know the places that I’ve…

What I Never Knew About Zurich

What I Never Knew About Zurich

Zurich was a complete fluke. When we took an impromptu trip to Europe early this summer, we knew that we needed to make it to Portugal, preferably for at least 4 days. Since that was…

13 Things You Have To Do When You Visit Paris

13 Things You Have To Do When You Visit Paris

Visiting Paris is a must-do for everyone, no literally – everyone. I’m lucky enough to have been three times and every experience was a little different then the last. My first time was as a student studying abroad in college and I was literally in Paris for 48 hours. I vowed to come back with my husband since Paris is, of course, the city of love. Sahir and I made that happen when we spent Christmas in Paris in December of 2016 which is so romantic – right? I thought so too, except between 2 days of flight delays and 7 days of lost luggage in freezing cold weather – it was a little less glamourous. We still had a great time but promised ourselves that we would never travel during the holidays again with a) connecting flights and b) checked luggage. Our most recent trip was a do-over and Sahir made me promise to travel carry-on only. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. It was however, super refreshing to just hop off the plane and head straight into the city. Now that I’m a seasoned Parisian traveler, I have made a list of the top things you have to do when you visit Paris…

5 Travel Tips That Jetsetters Swear By

5 Travel Tips That Jetsetters Swear By

I am a serial procrastinator when it comes to packing. I mean, hours before my flight I’ll be putting rolling shirts and ordering chargers on Amazon Now. It’s not my proudest moments. BUT I’m committed to breaking the cycle and this year has been amazing practice. (Remember when Sahir made me go to Paris for a week in just a carry-on?)…

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ONLY HAVE 72 HOURS IN CHICAGO

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ONLY HAVE 72 HOURS IN CHICAGO

For my birthday this year, I took a trip to Chicago and I decided to try my hand at vlogging. Every year my husband has a big work conference that happens to fall on the first week of May and thus a tradition of “birthdays on the go” began. Every year we spend my birthday in a different city and I am certainly not complaining. We’ve been to New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, and this year – Chicago!

I had such a great time in Chicago and can’t wait to go back! I hope you like this vlog – if you did I’d love to hear from you. These take way, way, way longer to make and I want to make sure that you guys are enjoying the content that I’m creating.

THE BEST TRAVEL SHOES THAT ARE COMFY & CUTE

THE BEST TRAVEL SHOES THAT ARE COMFY & CUTE

I love exploring cities when I visit. I’m the person that wants to be out on the town right after breakfast and not return to the room until nightfall. The problem is that my feet usually can’t keep up with my “can-do” attitude. I did so much research before this trip. Like, ridiculous amounts of research. My Google search history is embarrassing. I realized that I really liked the look of White Converse shoes, but when I wore them I realized that they nail “cute” but “comfort” is not their thing. Fair enough. Then I found…

SANDESTIN TRAVEL GUIDE

SANDESTIN TRAVEL GUIDE

A few weeks ago, I was invited as a guest of the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Miramar Beach, Florida to come spend 4 days on their gorgeous property with 6 of the most incredible bloggers. I couldn’t say “yes!” fast enough! I was so excited for the opportunity to get away and beach life is exactly what I needed. It was easy to trade in the Atlanta rain for crisp beach air and white sand beaches. The Hilton Sandestin Resort has been recognized with the Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating and has been named one of the ‘Top 20 Florida Golf Resorts’ and I can easily see why. My experience was far better than I ever imagined – they truly rolled out the red carpet for us and you absolutely have to stay here the next time you head to Sandestin. Here’s what we did:

MY LA TRAVEL GUIDE

MY LA TRAVEL GUIDE

Last week, Sahir and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary in LA. We’ve never been there before and after visiting San Diego & San Francisco it had been on our list. We took advantage of the long weekend and headed to La La Land (I appropriately watched the movie for the first time on the plane ride here) to see that the city had to offer. I have to admit, it was a lot more spread out than I imagined, but we were able to see everything from Venice Beach to West Hollywood and in between. Here’s my travel guide for what to eat, do, and see in LA!

Atlanta Staycation at the Crowne Plaza Midtown

Atlanta Staycation at the Crowne Plaza Midtown

Unlike many Atlanta residents, I’m lucky enough to call the city my native home. I was born in the city and grew up in a northern suburb. I went to college at the University of Georgia and moved to the city with my husband (& now puppy!) It’s not uncommon that when someone lives in the same place their entire life, they get antsy and eager to move to another place. I, however…
