✨at this time next week i’ll be on the beach in italy... 🇮🇹🏖 so it’s safe to say this week is crawling by! i’m trying to stay productive but the anticipation is killing me! 😫 what are some ways you battle a slow week? send me your tips!✨
Use yelp as a reference guide not as a check list ✅🙅🏻♀️
The locals know all the true hidden gems. .
Leverage their local experience as a compass to navigate where to go, eat, see and explore 😉
Most importantly : always show gratitude 🙏
Be honest / be kind / be free 💫
The perfect jumpsuit for eating and drinking our way through San Diego. It had been a minute since we explored Balboa Park. Forgot how beautiful it is! ✨ #balboapark #traveltuesday
A little bundle of summer blooms 🌸
this is me saying ✌🏻 out to the best island hopping experience, ever.
💕 Flash forward almost SIX years and she’s still my little adventure partner. 💕
🍇 did a thing 21.08 🍇
Pre-empting my dream life of being able to pick lemons and tomatoes from my garden to cook fresh that day, today i finally went to the pick your own farm💗
All the fruits and vegetables we picked came to less than £10!! Redcurrants, raspberries, blackberries and onions. The strawberries all got picked in the morning 😭
Now I see why there were so many families with trollies and trollies stacked high woth onions haha. Someone had TWENTY bags of courgettes.... what a fun party she must be having.
Anyway, I will be turning the redcurrants to redcurrant relish, the blackberries became a milkshake cocktail, engineered by my boy, and i’m going to make a apple and blackberry “dutch baby” pancake(we got a lot!of blackberries). But nine onions, after I already bought three from sainsburys? What should I do with the nine white onions? I’m already crying all the time. (re-uploaded cos my dumb ass forgot to tag this, too busy cooking the pancake haha)
I'll visit any destination with pastel shutters and flower boxes
Happiness comes in waves.
We took this on our last day exploring our favorite Dutch city together before I made the move back to the States. (And right before we were about to do 2 months long distance across the world 🤦🏽♀️) I know sometimes it feels silly to stand in the middle of the road to take a selfie with your boo, but do it. Such a gift to look back on memories. I’ll cherish this photo and town for ever and ever. ✨
A sweet end to a long but wonderful first day in Helsinki! I’m so glad this little gem was recommended to us - they had the best bread, the freshest fish, and a lime cream/raspberry granita dessert that I’m going to be dreaming about for a while... plus, a PINK WALL 😍
So excited for more adventures tomorrow, but for now - it’s time to SLEEP 😴 #LSLtravels #myhelsinkiresidence #myhelsinki
My week of Jackson Hole posts kicked off on Rhyme & Reason yesterday! First up: this adorable gingham dress + I spilled on our favorite things to do in Grand Teton National Park as well as the best photography spots in the park 💕 #rrjetsets

Sometimes you have to stop and smell the....plumeria...and eat the Hula Pie!
Have been chatting with our running crew all morning and have all things Hawaii on my mind...but mostly wanting my Hula Pie fix.
Duke’s and Hula Pie soon! Tell me I’m not the only one who plans travels partly around food...or dessert?!
Me, hiding from all responsibilities.
Pros to going to Jo’s on SoCo: great coffee and views ☕️😍
Cons: back-in-angle parking 🚫
Take me back to this beautiful place 😍 I started going through my Canada photos from June again on the weekend and just had to post another one- I don’t think anything will ever make me as happy as mountains and waterfalls as far as the eye can see!
Looking for an escape?? 🧐
I’ve got a few.
Being a small business owner is very rewarding, but also very challenging. I’m at a conference and having a really great experience for my business, but I am SO homesick! I miss my kids, my dog and the ocean so much I could cry. These are the challenging moments where I have to really dig deep. I am really looking forward to going home, hugging my kids and going to the beach!!!!!
Its no secret that Boston has my heart- i light up any time i head into this beautiful city! ⠀⠀ ___
Now tell me whats your favorite city? (I bet i get several answers for Paris or NYC❤️)#brooksbrothers200
Life is a gift and the Giver is good 💕

J&S just departed for an epic honeymoon across three continents - what an adventure they have in store! The first stop, Kenya! 🇰🇪 Excited for them to meet my buddy Ed and all of his friends 🦒🐘🦏🦓
sometimes I just wait in my room for breakfast to come... and then im late + have to eat in the car. 🍳🥞🥓
Walk in the park. I’m totally sold on the Catskills 🌲
What I really wanted to do was to run around singing "The hills are alive, with the sound of music" 🎶
back in TN but you know I have a few more CO pictures in the pipeline 👌🏼⠀
& cheers to being back in humidity where my skin is happy 🤗
The 🌎 is full of magic. From every corner our eyes are drawn to something. I just happened to look up after leaving dinner last week with a good friend. This is my ❤️. NYC is and always will be my home. .
Have you ever stopped in a moment and saw something so special?
I look forward to every chance I get to explore. Next week with two days off it’s time for a road trip to “I’m not sure yet, wherever I land up, is where I land up.” #femaletravelbloggers #seeyourcity
Things aren’t always what they seem. Especially on the Internet.
The night before this sunrise, there was a dust storm. Everything in our tent was covered with a layer of fine, red sand. As we were trying to fall asleep, it was coming in the tent from all sides. I tried for about an hour in the dark make it stop. I moved the stakes, tightened the cover, moved the stakes again. Nothing helped. At one point, right when I was at my most vulnerable and on the edge of a breakdown, the tent started to collapse in on itself.
Not much can humble you like standing in the dark, in the middle of the night, on the edge of a cliff, in the middle of a dust storm, in the middle of the desert trying in vain to make it stop raining sand on the inside of a collapsing tent can.
But then again, we got to wake up to this. So, #worthit
Tuesday throwback of sunny Florida 💛 NYC is becoming colder - I guess autumn is pretty close. Finger crossed it won't be super cold. I finally have all the energy for my personal projects that I'll share here :) Meanwhile, I started learning new language and still writing articles about design on my Russian channel. How is your week so far?
Next set of photos will be from the island of Antigua & Barbuda.
It was my first time in the Caribbean. I thought Jamaica would be my first Caribbean country because I've been wanting to visit for many years. But Antigua came first.
Have you been? Comment below!
Hanging out with some of the locals..🐦🐦 Can I take these chatterboxes home please?! 😭❤️
Does your family tend to vacation in one spot or jump around? My mom’s side of the family has been coming down to Hilton Head, SC since before I was born. This year is obviously extra special with the newest family members making their first visit but a little bittersweet too. The passage of time is clearly evident with the absence of other family members who couldn’t make the trek down. Soaking up all the family time and vitamin sea we can this week. Wishing you some good vibes today!!
