Bonjour, les amis! It's back to the grind for me! Ben and I have just returned from a long weekend of eating, drinking and playing our way through Montreal. From the food, to the nightlife, to the neighborhoods-- Montreal is so unique and I'm excited to share my experience and itinerary with you. We chose … Continue reading A weekend in Montreal
Greetings from Canada! Ben and I journeyed up across the northern border yesterday for a long weekend in Montreal (blog posts coming soon!) I just wanted to share this really cool spot with you guys. We stopped at the Phoenicia Diner on the drive up and while it was slightly out of the way, it … Continue reading Northward Bound
Well maybe you do, but I usually do not. Chocolate, cookies, brownies, cake: count me in! Ice cream's simply just the one sweet treat I've never been able to completely indulge in. That being said, I'm always down to give it a try-- especially if it looks like this cone from Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream! … Continue reading We all scream for ice cream!
Finally made it down to see the finished World Trade Center Oculus! I haven't been down to this area in months and the last time I saw it, Santiago Calatrava's strange, rib-cage like structure was still under construction. Beneath the white "bird in flight" exterior is a huge open space lined with stores from H&M … Continue reading Oculus
That's the year the Brooklyn Bridge opened to the public. Some more fun facts for you: the project took 14 years and somewhere around $15 million dollars (at the time) to complete. Oddly enough, when this beauty opened, Brooklyn was its own city rather than a borough, which I definitely didn't know! This stunning NYC … Continue reading 1883.
As I mentioned in a previous #TBT post about Alcatraz, we made a stop in Los Angeles while driving from San Francisco to San Diego back in February. It was a quick visit for sure: we only had one full day in LA! When planning how we'd conquer the City of Angeles, we decided that the Hollywood Sign hike … Continue reading #TBT: All The Way Up
The "Sunday Scaries" were real yesterday! Just wanted to share some of my favorite pics from this gloomy weekend. I'm always looking for cool graffiti and street art to take pictures of (and with!) and we found some awesome murals in downtown Manhattan. We took these before heading into Alphabet City for some beer and … Continue reading A pop of color
Hello Party People and happy Thursday. We've almost made it-- the weekend is so close I can nearly taste it! For this #TBT post, I thought I'd take you across the pond and share some pictures from our London 2015 trip. My boyfriend, Ben, is British and thanks to him, I've had the opportunity to … Continue reading #TBT to LDN
Throwing it back to San Francisco this Thursday. Ben, Christy, Austin and I cancelled our trip to Cartagena, Colombia (Thanks, zika! Boo!) and did a week in the Golden State, where we started in San Fran, drove to LA and then down to San Diego. San Francisco was AMAZING. So beautiful. So hilly. So many … Continue reading TBT: The Rock & Some Other San Fran Goodness
Meant to post about this yesterday for 'throwback thursday', but time got away from me! I guess it still works as a "flashback friday". Just wanted to share this really cool place worth checking out if you're ever in London. It's called the Cereal Killer Cafe and it's pretty sweet (figuratively and literally). It's a … Continue reading This place is a killer…
