Chefchaouen, the Blue Pearl of Morocco, has topped my list of places to see for quite some time now. I've been mesmerized by the beautiful blue buildings, small streets, and colorful culture that Chefchaouen provides. As a photographer, it's one of those dream places that you really cannot take too many photos of. Walking through the blue streets, I had to stop myself and soak it all in from time to time. It's truly one of the most gorgeous cities I've seen in person.Read More
Paros Palace set the bar high (like really, really high) for the rest of our trip in Greece. Just a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride from the Paros Port, Paros Palace sits on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean and the mountains nearby. The views are absolutely breathtaking as you can see in the photos above and that's just one of the many perks of this little oasis overlooking the Aegean Sea.Read More
Max Patch is still one of the most magical places I've visited. Even after traveling to the Maldives, hiking through the Agafay Desert in Morocco, and summiting Schrecksee in the German Alps — Max Patch still stands out amidst those magical spots.
Even though I am not the most outdoorsy person in the world, I always enjoy a night under the stars at Max Patch.Read More
If you can’t think of three places to put the piece of furniture, then don’t buy it.
And I’ve started applying that to my wardrobe and what a game changer it’s been. Now, if I can’t think of three different occasions, seasons, or places I would wear something it’s a “no-go”. Luckily, this little number surpassed my three places rules by far. Not only can I wear it on a date night with Michael, to a wedding, or grabbing a drink with friends, but I can also wear it from summer to fall. I tried it on with a large, chunky sweater and black boots — hello fall wardrobe!Read More
This two-piece set came into the mail this week, and I knew I’d have to share it with you guys ASAP, especially before it’s sold out. Luckily, Zara does a great job of restocking new items, so although there aren’t too many sizes right now, I’m sure they’ll restock soon. Sizing is not TTS. Which is a rarity for Zara, but in this case, this set runs big. I purchased an XS in both the bottoms and top, and they fit, but very loose. Granted, that is the look they are going for here!Read More
So, next time you're hosting a girl's night, dinner, or event at your place and you're looking for a delicious cheese plate and a one-stop-shop (Trader Joe's) to do your grocery shopping, look no further. It also impress everyone and make you feel like you’re a little chef in the making! Plus, it’s fun to just throw crushed nuts on the board, add color where you think is fitting, and get creative.Read More
Although we no longer live in this sweet little home under Lookout Mountain, I still wanted to share all the TLC I put into this house. Plus, it was the first house we ever truly owned, and we had so many great memories there! Besides, most the furniture we kept, and if we didn’t, it wasn’t because I didn’t love, it’s just when ya move to the city a girl has to downsize.Read More
Although I could talk about my dog and his cute collar for days, I'll keep this short and simple. The Wild One kit has not only upped Frankie's style game but also helped us not look like horrible dog parents walking him around on a tattered leash! It's durable, stylish, and looks super cute hanging up in our condo. Instead of buying a new cloth leash each year, we’ll have this one much longer (saving us $$ in the long run).Read More
Well, here I am at the ripe age of 26 and I found myself smelling way too much of that Fierce cologne trying to find the perfect pair of high-waisted denim shorts for our trip to Mexico. I had seen another blogger wearing these super cute shorts and when I found out they were from Abercrombie, I was like, “eww”, then I realized I need to stop being so prematurely judgy and just try them out. When you need shorts in a pinch, you do what you gotta do.Read More
If you’ve been thinking about traveling to Tulum, then you know that the hardest part about planning this gorgeous getaway is finding the perfect spot to stay. I think I spent two weeks going through Airbnb listings before settling on Nahouse. Also, things go quick, so waiting too many weeks to book your stay isn’t recommended!Read More
The Maldives is one of those few places that blow your expectations out of the water. One couldn't possibly dream up a paradise as gorgeous as these 1,100+ islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The amazing teal colored water, palm trees perfectly placed on gorgeous islands, fresh fish caught daily, and sunshine 365 days of the year -- it's pure bliss.Read More
We drove to Snoopers rock after a long work day and arrive 1 hour before sunset. We didn’t really have a plan; per usual. However, we just winged it and it all worked out. We camped out at Davis Pond and it was pretty busy (granted it was Labor Day weekend). Next time we go, we’ll try to hike to our camping spot so it’s more quiet, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy campsite I definitely recommend David Pond.Read More
Mother Goose Hotel located in Utrecht, the Netherlands is one of the dreamiest and coziest places I've stayed in to date. Upon arriving to this small, boutique hotel in the heart of Utrecht, I knew I was going to fall in love. This chic space feels like a super trendy B&B with modern amenities, lots of privacy, and such a unique flare.Read More
We said goodbye to Germany and our little life there last month and moved back to the States. If any of you have ever moved (whether it was down the street or to a totally new place) you know it's always bittersweet. Excitement for the new adventure, but lots of sadness when it comes to saying goodbye and closing such a big chapter.Read More
Mykonos Island was one of the most charming islands we visited during our seven days of island hopping in Greece. From beautiful alleys to restaurants over looking the ocean and the iconic mills, this island was absolutely stunning.
Although spending a few more days would have been ideal, one day was a perfect amount of time to see the main sites on the island and enjoy everything.
When we arrived to Twenty Eight, we were immediately in love with the decor and design. The space was classy yet modern and had such a bold, eclectic feel about it that still remained inviting. The staff greeted us excitedly and gave us the grand tour. Which was quite grand if I do say so myself.Read More
Marrakech is an amazing city to visit. However, after a few days of the busy Moroccan souks, it's really nice to escape the chaos. There are many options when it comes to booking day trips from Marrakech. From the Atlas Mountains and desert to the beautiful town of Essauoira there is so much to see. Even if you're short on time during your travels to Marrakech, taking a day to see something different and learn more about the Moroccan history and culture is worth it.Read More
The Greek Islands were everything I dreamed they would be and more. The atmosphere and landscape was picturesque, the people were extremely kind, and the food was to die for. I went in hoping it would be a trip of a lifetime and it really was. Sailing allowed us to see so much more of the islands than we would have otherwise and gave us a whole new perspective.Read More

When finding a place to stay in Fes, Morocco I had a few priorities: proximity to the Medina, safe location, and a beautiful Riad that had a terrace to relax on. Riad Anata provided all my necessities and totally blew me away by its beauty. In the heart of Fes, Riad Anata was easy to get to and allowed us to navigate the city by foot each day.Read More
