In late June, I visited my brother in Colorado and we went on a road trip to the Rocky Mountains National Park! The three main destinations were Deer Mountain, Bear Lake, and Loch Vale. We wanted to see both mountains and lakes, so that’s why we decided on those destinations. And you know what? We were over 10,000 feet above sea level on both days!! It was so nice to escape the busy city to a place without cellphone service (Instastorying was a struggle but that’s okay). While I am not the most athletic person (crazy to think that I used… View Post

I just finished packing for my trip to Denver and Philadelphia and wanted to share my top ten travel essentials with you!

It’s been almost a month since my trip to Ottawa and I finally finished sorting through all the pictures! My friend Sandra and I wanted to go somewhere we’ve never been to for a weekend trip (Friday to Sunday) and we decided to go to the capital of Canada!

Williamsburg is a neighborhood in Brooklyn and is easily accessible from Manhattan via the L train.It is known for its hipster vibes, so my friend Tennley and I spent a day there to explore the neighborhood. I have been there a few times before for Smorgasburg, but never an entire day of exploring. If you are in New York City, I highly recommend getting out of Manhattan, even if it’s just to see the view of Manhattan from across the river. All you have to do is get on the L train and get off at Bedford Avenue, which is the first… View Post

Since moving to New York City last year, I’ve been wanting to do a Philadelphia day trip, and I finally crossed it off the list this month! It was below freezing that weekend, so I bundled up and braved the cold to see the beautiful city of Philadelphia. First stop – brunch at Green Eggs Cafe. And then Square One Coffee because it was a 45-minute wait. We ordered the red velvet pancake and steak & eggs for brunch, and wow those portions are HUGE! We shared both dishes so we could get a bit of sweet and a bit of… View Post
