I got SO many questions while we were in Manhattan during Christmas asking if I could do a Christmas in NYC guide. While I wasn’t originally planning on it, I figured that I better get one up since so many people asked for it. (Especially while it was fresh on my mind.) I still had all of the spots that we mapped out saved in my notes section on my phone. So, instead of waiting until next holiday season to post it, I went ahead and got it up today and included some of the photos from our trip!
This was not a blog-related trip – spending Christmas in NYC has been something we have always wanted to do. And with baby on the way, this was probably one of our last opportunities! It was one of the BEST trips that me and Jordan have gone on together. I highly recommend trying to make it to New York City for Christmas at least once! So, I’m sharing a list of every single holiday activity we checked off our list in today’s post.
Whether you’re a first timer or a repeat visitor, there are SO many things to do in Napa Valley! On my very first trip, I covered so much in the few days during my stay in Yountville, so I wanted to put together our daily travel guide filled with where to eat and what to do – and of course where to stay. Keep reading to find out more about my stay at Hotel Yountville + see my very first (of hopefully more to come) Napa travel guide!
While in Napa, I decided to do something a little bit different and snap what’s inside my makeup bag when I travel. You may have seen my acrylic makeup organizers in previous posts – they hold SO much stuff y’all. But I only travel with my 100% can’t-live-without products. So before I do a deep dive into my entire makeup collection, I though it might be more important to point out the ones that I bring with me on every single trip.

This week (8/26), Nordstrom is offering beauty gifts with purchase that I’ll be outlining under all of the different brands eligible in today’s post! It’s a fun way to try out new products that you might not have known about from your go-to brands!
Last month, I got to be a part of a DREAM trip with Lilly Pulitzer to celebrate their new “Lilly Pulitzer Cottage” at White Elephant Nantucket! Ever since visiting the island for a quick day trip two summers ago, I’ve been dying to get back to it’s beautiful hydrangea-filled yards and charming homes. Along with Jen from Style Charade, Brittany from Loverly Grey and Jenn from Haute Off the Rack, we were able to experience the best of Nantucket, and I’m here to spill all the details in today’s post! If you’re planning an upcoming trip or hope to get there one day, keep reading for my Nantucket travel guide!
Where is Nantucket and How to Get There:
Nantucket is an island right off the eastern peninsula of Massachusetts known as Cape Cod. There are two ways to get there: take a high-speed ferry (about an hour ride from Hyannis port) or fly directly into the very small airport (on a very small plane) directly onto the island. What they say is true y’all – sometimes the best places to visit are the ones that take a little longer to get to!
It took me a while (SO many details to include in this post!), but I’m excited to finally share my first-timers guide to Scottsdale with you today! My visit to Scottsdale was nothing short of memorable – including both me trying to become accustom to dry heat and flying above the Earth in a hot air balloon! If you are thinking about visiting, I’m sharing all of our activities in today’s full blog post – make sure to click through to see all the photos too!
Important note: I would suggest visiting in spring or fall. Our trip was in May, and everyone kept telling us that it was actually cooler weather than usual. While we got lucky with the weather, a lot of the cactus blooms were already gone.
