Travel Guide: Reykjavik, Iceland (without a car)

IMG_5173Hey everyone! I just returned from an amazing trip to Iceland and Norway with my mom and wanted to share my recommendations with you all for Iceland! Typically when people travel there, they rent a car and drive the Ring Road around the country but we didn’t do this (you can check out Julia Engel’s amazing post about their trip that they rented a car for). Instead, we spent half of our 4 day trip in the city of Reyjavik and then the other half on day-long tours so that we could still venture out into the scenic areas. (Note, these tours didn’t involve hiking.) Read on to see what we did! Continue reading

Travel Guide: Southampton, NY

IMG_0641Hey 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

Travel Guide: A Girl’s Guide to NYC

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetI’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! 😉

Travel Guide Pt. 2: Sweater Weather in SF (+Food Recommendations)

MBHW6410Sweater (similar one here, here, & here) | Pants | Sneakers | Sunglasses

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.

Here is everything we did in a little over 3 days!
