Holiday Gift Guide for the Homebody

December 10, 2019

I used to not be much of a homebody – I’d be more than happy to go out every single night of the week and never felt too burnt out from it. When I started travelling a lot though (and particularly when my travelling really ramped up and I became lucky enough to make travel my main content stream throughout the year), I would come home and just want to vegetate in our place. I got this insane “nesting” urge…

How I Create Blog Posts

December 6, 2019
Microsoft Surface Pro 7

I’ve been blogging for years now, so the process I have for pulling together blog posts, social postings, etc does feel second nature to me at this point, but it is still work…sometimes a lot of work! I’d say 90% of what I do is research, writing, photo editing, emails, strategizing, SEO, etc. So basically, me in sweatpants with coffee by my side feeling like I’m permanently attached to my laptop. Having said that, as I’ve been travelling more and…

The Christmas Tree Farm

Christmas Tree Farm

This is my first post in a long time (or maybe the first one ever?!) that’s shot all on iPhone. I often bring my camera out over the holidays for our various and many Christmas traditions which always kicks off with our visit to the Christmas tree farm (you can see posts doing our Christmas tree cutting here, here, and here!) not only to snap a few pics for myself, but to capture some of my fam as well. Having…

My Fave Black Friday Sales

November 29, 2019

Black Friday is officially here! I’m not one to do any crazy shopping myself because I really try to be pretty cognizant of what I buy (I feel like Kondo-ing my place within an inch of its life has made me pretty picky about what I do bring in) so this year, rather than sharing a gazillion sales (because let’s be honest, it’s already pretty overwhelming), I wanted to share some of my fave brands that I’ve been loyal to…

Travel Hair Care Rescue

November 26, 2019

This post was created in partnership with Pantene, but all opinions are my own. As you guys likely know, I’ve been travelling pretty non-stop for the last couple of months. In addition to this recent post’s styling tips, I’m trying to stay on top of my general hair health because as much as my hair is typically low-key (it’s very fine and usually dries pretty pin straight, unless it’s damaged then it gets some pretty random kinks and waves in…
