A Day At Mount Rainier (Part One)

One of the coolest days of our trip to the Pacific Northwest was the day we got to hang out with the wonderful Bella Bucchiotti! We’d found each other on Instagram about a year ago, and discovered we had so much in common. There was no way we couldn’t meet when we were going to be so close! We spent the day on an epic road trip to Mount Rainier, took Bella to Chick-fil-A for the first time, sang way…

$30 Amazon Striped Swimsuit

This summer I (very skeptically) ordered three gorgeous swimsuits off of Amazon.  Since they were all under $30, I wasn’t expecting much, but they are surprisingly well made and have turned into my new favorites! This one piece is awesome because it has such a striking yet sophisticated look with a way different price tag than basically all other swimsuits of its style.  Like, a $100 difference. This fabulous swimsuit has a flattering high waist, which for all of you…

$30 Pinup Swimsuit

I’ve never been much of a two-piece swimsuit gal because they’re never really flattering. They always seem to hit just at the wrong spot and accentuate my food baby, making me wish I hadn’t had dessert like, ever. High waisted two-piece swimsuits though, have totally changed the game. The bottoms come up high enough that they cover up that whole muffin top/ love handle/ what did I eat area. Plus it has a cool vintage vibe and isn’t that fun?!…

Lauren James Taylor Oxford Dress

My family has been going to St. George Island, Florida for vacation since before I was born. Located just a twenty minute drive away from the island though, is a small historic fishing town called Apalachicola. The little fishing town is filled with lush green palm trees, beautiful historic homes, a quiet river, and a deep blue bay where if you watch for a few moments you may see an alligator or a manatee swim right by. Finding a well…

Breeders’ Cup

Lets just get real here, this post is all about the day I met Taylor Lautner. Enjoy the other stuff too, but lets get the important stuff out of the way first. I don’t think anyone understands how much I loved Twilight growing up, and yes, I’m admitting to that right here on the Internet for the whole world to read. I was such a huge fan that when I saw him I knew if I didn’t ask for a…

My Atomic Valentine

Kentucky is known for its bourbon. We have bourbon trails, bourbon tasting, and around Christmas at least one family member receives a bottle (at least in my family). Buffalo Trace Distillery is one of the coolest bourbon distilleries in Kentucky, as it’s surrounded in lush, green landscape and smells of sweet bourbon cookie bread ALL THE TIME. In the colder months, it’s always a drag to have to cover up your outfit with some form of bulky outerwear just to…

Antelope Island

Let me start by saying that if there is a heaven on earth, Antelope Island is it. I wish we’d visited earlier in our trip because I probably would have demanded we go back every day and watch the sun set over the Great Salt Lake that surrounded the island. It was almost magical how pure everything was there. Bison, Antelope, and Deer all roamed free and the land was untouched except for a few roads to help you find…

Free All Adventures

I remember my childhood as the time where I didn’t understand why Ariel wasn’t treated like a real princess, what the big deal was with Jesse McCartney, and why I had to have fifty AR points by the end of the week. The thing about our childhoods is that they are all adventures. We play pretend, we dream, and one day something reminds us of the days when we used to dream and be adventurous on a daily basis. For…

The World, the Bridge, and the Vest

I’m lucky to live in one of the few states that still has covered bridges. The Switzer Covered Bridge near Frankfort has been restored over the years, and on the outside it’s like any other covered bridge; charming, barn-like and inviting. On the inside, though, it’s as unique as they come. Covered in questionable graffiti, it’s a really awesome place to head out to if you’re looking for a short road trip from Lexington (about 30 minutes). NOTE: DO NOT…

A Day In Key West

Key West is one of those places that makes you want to wear bright colors and explore. It still blows my mind that we were able to reach all of our destinations with just a bike ride. I’m so used to having to hop in my car to go anywhere that the idea of riding bikes to sightsee was foreign. One day packed full of explorations and I felt like I could really say I had been to Key West…
