Known to many as the city that longs to be kept weird, Austin Texas is an ideal travel destination for foodies, adventurers, and music-lovers alike. I spent four glorious days soaking up the Texas sun (and sunsets), exploring the quirky cultural corners, and eating more than my fair share of tacos. One thing to note: Austin is a driving city and not a walking one so it helps to map out the places you'd like to go in advance, that way you can hit multiple spots in the same neighborhoods. I used Lyft for my entire trip and had a fantastic experience, so I highly recommend it because it was the cheapest and most convenient option by far.
I jam-packed A LOT into my long weekend, so I've mapped out a guide that you too! There are so many incredible places to explore, eat and shop in the heart of Texas, but even with this list, there are still places I didn't get to. So if you’re planning a weekend trip to Austin, be sure to make it a long one! Read More
Doesn't Summer feel like the ultimate time for fun fiction and can't-put-me-down thrillers? I just love getting lost in twisted tales and breezy books while lounging by the pool or on a picnic. The only hard part can be figuring out what books are worth spending your coveted summer afternoons on (I know, SUCH tough problems). I love searching online for new books to get inspiration, but I find recommendations from friends with similar tastes so much more useful -- which inspired me to curate a list for the summer in hopes that these books will offer you a dose of much-needed escapism too. These books are a mix of what I've read recently and what's next on my bookshelf, waiting for a perfect afternoon in the park to breeze through. Happy reading!

In the spirit of savoring the little things, I’ll be sharing a few things “worth noting” to me every other Friday. I love sharing a great book, show, product or even just a memorable moment from the week. "The little things? The little moments? They aren't little." - Jon Kabat Zinn.
Somehow it's already June?? That's kind of crazy to me, but time seems to fly when the weather is nice and you just don't want the long, sunny days to end. The last couple weekends have been filled with fun trips to Napa and Seattle and this weekend I'm headed to Austin, Texas for the very first time! I've heard nothing but amazing things, so I'm extra excited to explore the food scene and all those things that keep Austin weird. Oh, and I'll be there during my birthday, too! :)
It feels like I've spent most of this week glued to my desk or laptop trying to prep for this weekend's vacation, but I still wanted to share a few things worth noting from the past couple weeks! I'm excited to be sharing a couple upcoming posts on my favorite Summer books and beauty products soon -- so stay tuned! Read More
