• What You Can Expect From A Trip To Canada

    Canada is one of the most visited places in the world, and once you have seen it just once you will easily appreciate just why that might be. Not only is it incredibly beautiful, but the people are amongst the friendliest in the world – so much so that it is almost something of a Canadian cliche to be polite and friendly. Clearly, this is the kind of place you want to visit if you are looking for a trip which can be easy and fun, and it is hardly surprising that so many people go there every year. But if you are about to embark on your first trip…

  • 4 Incredible East Coast Vacations

    The eastern coast of the United States is home to some of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. Impressively, the east coast is able to offer a wide variety of experiences – all wonderful, but all very different. Now I may be a bit bias since I do live on the east coast, BUT you can’t go wrong taking a trip out here!  A single post can’t sum up all the possibilities offered by a coastline that stretches for well over 2,000 miles, of course, but below, we’ve sought to detail arguably the most incredible experiences the east coast has to offer…I’m sure we have left out a…

  • Merry Christmas & a 1 year AAA membership giveaway!

    **This contest is now closed** *Sponsored post with AAA. All opinions are my own. I can’t believe tomorrow is December 16th! This year is going by so quickly and with Thanksgiving just behind us, I still have so much to be thankful for! One of those being my lovely boyfriend whom I just celebrated 8 months with and I literally could not be happier. Have you put your holiday decorations up yet? I did this the other day and it’s been rather nice sitting and looking at my tree and the festive décor. This weekend it will be time to decorate my boyfriend’s house because I can’t wait any longer!…

  • Voodoo Donuts, worth the hype?

    After an episode on The Travel Channel some years ago, I was instantly drawn to the crazy flavors and variety that Voodoo Donut was selling. While not living on the west coast or even in the middle of the United States, the chances of me trying one was pretty slim, that is until a week ago. Making plans to see my best friend out in Denver, Colorado involved visiting the Red Rocks, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Voodoo Donuts. I don’t typically crave donuts but this was something that I NEEDED to try. I settled on two flavors: cocoa puffs and oreo peanut butter. The cereal was a tad stale…

  • 7 things to do this weekend {October}

    I can’t believe this weekend is the beginning of October–how quickly is this school year is going by?! So anyways, with October approaching, some of my favorite fall activities can finally be done! This weekend I’m not doing a whole lot; my second job starts this weekend (tutoring) and then it will probably be spent doing more homework. So as you can see, nothing too exciting going on here. However if I had some free time, I would love to be doing something on this list! Research a DIY Halloween costume Head to the Big E (if you’re from New England) if you’re not, I suggest a similar fair closer…

  • down on the farm

    A little over a month ago I headed to Illinois for my best friends wedding (I was also in the wedding). So needless to say it had been over two years in the making and it turned out to be a fantastic day! The boyfriend and I flew out to Chicago a few days before the actual wedding, hoping to spend some time in Chicago. We ended up getting 1/2 a day there, but that’s okay, we totally plan on going back sometime soon! Our time in Chicago was pretty fun, even though we didn’t have much time. So what did we do? After checking in at The W Hotel,…

  • T-11 days…

    In 11 days I will be Chicago bound!! Now before I get ahead of myself, I am not staying in Chicago very long. The reason for my trip to Illinois is for my best friends wedding I have been talking about for over a year now. I am in the wedding, so things were particulary busy on my end earlier this year. The other exciting part is, my boyfriend and I, will get to spend just about 1 full day in Chicago and I can’t wait! The wedding is located about 2.5 hours south, I think? Regardless, it’s kinda sorta in the middle of nowhere and that’s where we will…
