BARCELONA DAY 5 | PARK HOPPING, FOOD + SHOPPING

I am sad to say that this was my last day in Barcelona. This was also one of my favorite days in the city. It was a beautiful Saturday and the sun finally decided to brace us with her presence. I honestly couldn’t have ask for a better day. We started off by going to […]

BARCELONA DAY 4 | PARC GUELL, SANT PAU HOSPITAL + PAELLA

We were very lucky the sun decided to come out, but it was still freezing. I am definitely glad that I packed layer able pieces on this trip. We started our morning off by exploring Parc Guell. It is probably THE most famous park in Barcelona and I now fully understand why. Not only is […]

BARCELONA DAY 3 | SAGRADA FAMILIA, CASA BATLLO + FLAMENCO

We spent most of the morning walking around the Sagrada Familia, and we took a guided tour there as well. The parks outside were gorgeous and we definitely got there early before our tour to walk around and take some pictures. Luckily we were staying a block away, and we were actually able to sleep […]

BARCELONA DAY 2 | MUSEU NACIONAL D’ART + MONSERRAT MONASTERY

The second day of my trip it was very cold a rainy. Luckily, the morning was spent looking through the beautiful Museu Nacional d’Art while it rained. I honestly love a good rainy day spent inside of a museum. This one was beyond beautiful…literally like walking through a castle. By the time we were done […]

BARCELONA DAY 1 | PALAU DE LA MUSICA, GOTHIC QUARTER + TAPAS

I did so much when I was in Spain that I have decided to break it down and do it by day. I will also create a guide to Barcelona for those of you who want just a highlighted version of the favorite things I did! The first full day in Barcelona might have been […]

OUTFIT ROUNDUP | BARCELONA, SPAIN

I can’t believe I have been home for almost a week. Barcelona was a dream trip and it went by way too fast. I am still fighting some jet lag and trying to get back on California time, so while I wait for my body to re-adjust I wanted to show you some of my […]

LAGUNA STAYCATION

After graduation I really wanted to do something to celebrate my hard work, and nothing sounded better than a relaxing trip somewhere. Being fully vaccinated, I feel way less anxious about traveling and being in crowds (totally 180 degrees from last year). My boyfriend and I talked about several places- Hawaii, Europe, New York, and […]

PORTLAND, OREGON | TRAVEL THROWBACK

On September 11, 2018 my boyfriend and I traveled to Portland, Oregon. This was the first trip we took just the two of us and it honestly was so perfect! In SoCal it doesn’t get very cold in the fall and I always crave that crisp Fall air being bundled up in a cozy sweater. […]

TRAVEL THROWBACK | SAN FRANCISCO BACHELORETTE

I can’y believe that a year ago I threw my bestie a Harry Potter themed bachelorette party in San Francisco! The more and more I am in quarantine the more grateful and blessed I feel that she got married last year. I was her Maid of Honor and I helped her with everything even planning […]

QUARANTINE BEACH DAY

Ever since quarantine started I have stayed home. I mean obviously I go to the grocery store and I will go on the occasional drive and get coffee but, I haven’t been out and about. The past week or so, as things have been re-opening, my boyfriend and I have been wanting to go do […]

TRUTH TALK | EUROPE TRIP CANCELED

When my cruise got canceled (that post here) I was secretly hoping that everything would be okay by the time my Europe trip came around…sadly, it wasn’t. This trip had been planned since December of 2019 and honestly it was my dream trip and a very necessary trip for me to go on. Growing up […]

TRUTH TALK | MY CRUISE WAS CANCELED

Last year I booked a 4 day cruise to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico. This would have been my very first cruise and I was beyond excited! Growing up I always heard people say how they were going on a cruise to (insert fabulous location here). I’ve always wanted to go on one but because […]
