Hey everyone! I recently got back from a trip out to Southampton for my friend Natasha’s birthday! Since seeing it on Gossip Girl and hearing about how boujie it is, my gal friends and I had been wanting to go for years! It was in a lot of ways exactly what we thought it would be like in the sense that there’s a lot of upper class people and people are driving luxury cars like Porsche’s and Bentley’s on every corner. A lot of our friends gave us advice that when people go to the Hamptons, they typically rent a house and stay in that house to party (rather than going out to a lot of different places). Since we don’t live near NY, we wanted to do a lot of exploring while we were out there and I wanted to share that with you guys! Continue reading
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! 😉
Guys I am having a serious itch for travel. I feel like I sound so bratty when I say I miss going on a plane because it’s only really been a month.. Lol but it’s different when you’re previously used to flying every week. I’ve been going back through some old travel pics and remembered that I was waiting to post about this outfit I wore a few months ago in SF until it became more fall-like in the South. I was so comfy wearing this loose sweater, skinny jeans, & sneakers while exploring the Mission and Dolores Park. My friends even tricked me into urban hiking in this outfit when we climbed up to Corona Heights Summit (the view was totally worth it). See what spots I explored on this trip at the bottom of the post (see my previous SF Travel Guide here). Shout out to my friends Neel, Mariana, and Isabella for shooting these pics at the summit and Clarion Alley (an awesome spot filled with murals)!
Alot happened yesterday & today so blogging is the perfect distraction. If you saw my last post, then you know that in July I took a last minute trip to LA to visit my roomie, Isabella, who was on a project out there! Every time I travel, I try to plan as efficiently as possible & do that through mapping everything I want to do out on My Maps (by Google)- you can also share the map with your friends to include places they want to go! Here is everything we did in a little over 3 days!
It is so crazy to me that it’s my last week in New York. I’ve been working here for the last 10 months which basically means I’ve been flying from Atlanta or another city into NYC every week for almost a year. Although I’m feeling a lot of mixed emotions, many of you know that New York City is my favorite city and there are so many things that I’m going to miss. I created a list of 10 things I’m going to miss the most and have included it at the end of this post!
So I originally requested to start my full time job on June 6th but got pushed back all the way to July 26th which in a way was actually a blessing. It gave me time to get to go on two trips that were far and awesome! The trip I went on the weekend before I started work was to Toronto with my parents! We started out by flying into Toronto and driving to Niagara Falls. Guys, it’s true, the Canada side really is more beautiful (and way bigger). The next day, we drove to Toronto and explored the city! I loved how large and urban this whole city was! Canadian cities have a certain beauty to them because you can see the European influence on certain structures as well as unique clean Canadian designs! I definitely feel very lucky to get to Canada two times within a month! (See my previous post about Victoria, BC, Canada here.) See where I went in Toronto below!
