Even though I’m definitely a city girl, it’s still so nice to get out to nature/ the woods every once in a while! This past weekend, my friend Hannah (who is such a talented photographer) and I went to Historic Banning Mills which is an hour southwest of ATL! We had so much fun staying in a treehouse (pics of the inside at the end), dining at the lodge, and doing a three hour zipline tour (they have the Guiness World Record for the longest zipline course)! Definitely recommend it and a big thank you goes out to Historic Banning Mills for hosting us! For my outfit, I wanted to be both cute and comfortable so my go to is colored layers over leggings! Check out the post for my outfit details and more photos of the getaway! Continue reading
I’m currently in the car on the way back from Louisville and am trying to get through writing this blog post without getting car sick. Lol My family occasionally takes trips to Louisville to reunite/ visit my older brother and it’s always nice to see everyone! Pretty much every time I am at my brother’s, I make sure to take some pics with his adorable pup, Snow because she is the cutest. On this weekend, it was around 40 degrees out and I stayed warm with my pink fluffy coat. I love it so much as it’s so cozy and always gets a lot of compliments! I always feel a little extra in it but in a good way and I always joke that it borderline looks like a robe! Definitely recommend getting one. 🙂 Read below to see more outfit pics and to see where we went out to eat!
You know what one thing I’ve been really appreciative for lately is my girl gang. Girls are thoughtful, caring, fun, and just get me and I’m lucky to be surrounded by so many strong women everyday. I love seeing my friends take life by the horns and make it their own and support me when I do the same thing. I am partnering with Evian Spray today to bring you this post in the theme of celebrating your girl gang and besties!
I’m so excited to share this post today because I especially love the pictures in this post! These were taken at #hubday which is a day put together by The H Collective where creatives meetup all over the country in specific cities & collaborate! It was so fun to get to work with a mix of people while admiring & meeting others! Highly recommend signing up if you’re a interested! The majority of these pictures were taken by Hannah Turner (SO talented!) but the other photographers were also wonderful & are noted under specific photos! Because Valentine’s day is around the corner, I was inspired to put together this girly, red outfit which is cute & a perfect transition outfit from colder to warmer weather! Lastly, in the theme of Valentine’s Day, I put together some thoughts on being 24 & single at the bottom of this post since I haven’t shared many personal thoughts about a love life on my blog before! ❤
I’m so excited to finally share with you all my girl’s guide to NYC! You might be thinking “Emily, you live in Atlanta, how are you confident that you know enough about NYC to do a “guide”?” Have no fear, I worked every week in NYC for 10 months (yes flying back & forth between cities) & also consistently still go back. Although there are SO many places I love in NYC, this is my list of my all-time favorite spots! These are the spots that if someone asked me to go right now, I would go in a heartbeat. I also included some extras in here just to make your trip in the best city in the world even better! 😉

I am having a week where I am just feeling high on life. I am feeling so constantly inspired and genuinely excited. There is such a big difference between working hard because you have to and working hard because you are passionate about something and can’t wait to demonstrate that passion. I’ve talked to some of my friends before about how lucky I feel to get so excited and motivated about certain things (especially when they are work-related); I know there are plenty of other people out there that are still trying to find their passions or are just really not interested in the corporate world or working at all. The quote on my insta bio is “if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough”. Getting to work towards my big dreams every day and feel like I’m making progress is a feeling that can’t be replaced. Hoping this feeling stays for a little while. 🙂 Continue reading
