Essentials of the Week!

ice cream summer inspiration

Welcome to August, friends! Does anyone know what age it is that you stop feeling like you should be stocking up on fresh new school supplies and filling out a new agenda as soon as August rolls around? I had some seriously nostalgic moments this morning thinking back on those incredible summers growing up where your only responsibilities were sleeping in, eating junk food while your parents were at work, lounging by the pool and watching tv shows like Zoey 101 and Drake…

Puerto Rico Guacamole Recipe You NEED To Try

puerto rico guacamole recipe

I’ve been selfishly holding this guacamole recipe to myself ever since my trip to Puerto Rico for my birthday. After serving it several times and having people demand the recipe, I’ve decided to share it with everyone! (It actually just never occurred to me to share the recipe…I was too focused on figuring out how many chips I could eat before I explode!) We found this recipe at a restaurant next to my cousins adorable little surf shack in Puerto Rico…

The Best Bags & Luggage for Every Type of Travel

The Best Bags & Luggage for Every Type of Travel

If I had to choose a theme for my life this year, it’s definitely travel. I’ve been talking about it more and more lately here (and sharing recaps like this one along the way!) and I am so looking forward to even more adventures around the corner.   I rarely like to say I’m an “expert” at anything – there’s always room for improvement! That said, I lived in and out of a suitcase since I was 6 years old,…

Essentials of the Week!

essentials of the week | July 2018

Happy Friday, everyone! I don’t know about you guys, but I felt like a new person this week. In the last few weeks I was feeling so stressed, frustrated and like nothing was going my way. I was totally hating what it was doing to my mood and energy! Clearly my weekend with my family at the cottage in Michigan came at the perfect time because I feel so much better and clearheaded.   Sometimes taking a little break, stepping away…
