Why I Felt Insecure at The Beach, And How I Found My Confidence

Why I Felt Insecure at The Beach, And How I Found My Confidence | The Coastal Confidence by Aubrey Yandow

Why I Felt Insecure at The Beach, And How I Found My Confidence | The Coastal Confidence by Aubrey YandowWhether we are talking about food, movies or even bathing suits one thing is for sure, I know what I like and I stick to it, end of story. Call it being stubborn, boring or self-aware, in the end, I always choose the food I know I’ll like, no vegan food here, the movies I know won’t give me nightmares, and the fit of a suit that will make me feel confident and covered on the beach. I mean trends are great for inspiration and adaptation but feeling confident is all about having the right fit, am I wrong? 

For the longest time, I never shared pictures of myself in bathing suits on my feed or on this platform because I’m a conservative person by nature. I like midi skirts over minis, I’ve never owned a crop top I haven’t returned and I live by a good turtleneck for most of the year. So in previous years, whenever swim season came along I always dreaded finding a new suit, because there wasn’t a ton of options for one-piece suits in general. Until this year…

I’m going to be truthfully transparent in this post because I think finding your confidence on the beach has way more to do with knowing your own body and knowing what works for you, fit wise, more than anything else. So let’s break down my body, shall we? I’m 5′ 2”, size 6 and around 125 pounds, give or take a few pounds depending on the week. I carry most of my weight in my derriere and have proportional but petite limbs. Which brings me to why I like a one piece. 

The main reasons why I like a good one piece is that it contains my backend business to put it lightly. I use to feel so self-conscience about my butt hanging out, especially with the low rise bottoms that were usually paired with my two piece swim sets. Honestly, I could care less about the status of my stomach but was oh so obsessed with the concern of my bathing suit bottoms falling off! I mean I was like a serial flasher at the beach, from just simply jumping off the boat or getting hit with a big wave somehow someway, I felt embarrassed. 

Now once, I hit college and found myself spending more time at the beach in San Diego, I turned towards one-piece swimsuits. By college I knew my body, I knew what I was anxious about before heading to the beach and I purchased swimsuits accordingly. I mean this small switch in mindset about purchasing bathing suits on fit over trend, made all the difference for me and finding my beach confidence. The moment I found a one piece that allowed me to be active and move without concern, was the moment I felt my most carefree and myself on the beach.

Let’s say your stomach is something that concerns you, style this classic red peplum tankini top or let’s say you want to keep your bellybutton incognito like Taylor Swift did way back when…just try out this high waisted French inspired swimsuit. Or maybe you want to show off your rock solid abs, take this one piece with side cutouts for a spin. You get my point, but now more than ever we have almost unlimited choices when it comes to swimsuit fits so why not take advantage of it and try something different. 

Before heading on my most recent trip to Costa Rica, I decided to give their Playa collection a spin. I loved how this specific collection showed off skin in the back while still covering up the majority of my butt. Not only was it a little sexier than your average one piece but it also had high cut legs which make my little 5’2” legs look a little more 5’6” in person. I kid, I kid. Okay but really, in the end, it comes down to finding flattering fits so take some time and check out some of the bathing suits I’ve linked below. I’ll be damned before I hear another gal pass about a beach trip because they aren’t beach ready. I mean I’m never beach ready, in fact, I’m headed to McDonald’s right now to get a quick lunch before working some more, but I’m always ready for the beach. Why I Felt Insecure at The Beach, And How I Found My Confidence | The Coastal Confidence by Aubrey Yandow

Why Good Relationships Aren’t Always Convenient

Why Good Relationships Aren't Always Convenient The Coastal Confidence
Matt and I have had one heck of a week, and as we gear up for summer and some upcoming changes Matt decided to help out by sitting down and ‘writing’ this blog post for me’. I say ”writing’ with quotation marks because Matt’s idea of writing consists of walking around with his apple earbuds in saying he has writer’s block, and trying to flatter me into writing the post for him, which I guess worked out in his favor because here I am Friday night having to write the post for him because half of this post isn’t written.
 
This blog post was originally supposed to be a break down of all the places we’ve traveled, including which one was our favorite and what each place means to us; but Matt seemed to have taken a different direction with this post, so I’ll just roll with it. Today Matt is sharing why good relationships aren’t always convenient. Sooo we’ll just jump right into it and let Matt take it away.

Aubrey and I have been dating for quite some time and through those years we have been fortunate enough to travel to many different countries and cities. From the beaches of Aruba to the jungles of Costa Rica, we have been able to taste the food, experience day-to-day life and connect with different cultures throughout the world. Even though we’ve visited several more tropical places, Aruba, Costa Rica, St. Martin and Punta Cana; I still think our best vacation together was going to Ireland. In fact, Ireland was the first place Aubrey and Tessa decided to vlog, so if you missed our Ireland blog content make sure to check out all the vlogs: Cobh Vlog, Ring of Kerry Vlog, Cliff of Moher Vlog and Falconry School Vlog. Aubrey and I love hearing about the history surrounding us and are excited to explore more of Europe but one thing is for sure, we aren’t always on the same page when traveling. 
 
We get a lot of questions from you guys about how we manage to maintain our relationship especially after moving in together, living together and our more frequently asked question, how to manage constantly be around each other while traveling. The taboo answers to these questions would be ‘relationships are a lot of work’ or ‘we’re just best friends and always love being together’, which I guess is true but really, I think there is an easier answer. To be honest our relationship isn’t a convenience it’s a choice. When you’re single you are the captain, you can do what you want whenever you want. You can cook dinner for one whenever you’re hungry, you can move and live in whatever city without consulting another, and finally, you can make your own schedule selfishly and ruthlessly. I mean in a perfect world that’s how it would be in a relationship but there is no I in team, am I right!?

Okay, before I get heat for this post let me clear one thing up, your days should never revolve around someone else but in order to maintain a relationship through phases of your life, you’ll need to form a partnership, which means you are one part of a bigger thing. Actually, we’ve seen our friends through a lot of relationships and a lot of the time it doesn’t work out because no one wants to compromise their short-term happiness.  Swallowing your pride and opening your life, schedule, and home to another isn’t easy. At first, it seems fun and exciting but it gets hard, and it’s a constant give and take. I’m sure people have judged Aubrey and I’s relationship especially when she decided to move to Dallas for my career but we knew as a partnership we were in this together. Was it convenient for her no, was it convenient for me to be taking blog photos of her all weekend long to make up for the time away from her TCC photographer Tessa, no but this relationship is ours, it’s not convenient and it’s tough but it works. 
 
To be blunt if you want a relationship to work, you’ll make it work. So don’t you worry if you’re going through your relationship thinking it should be easier or prettier, because Aubrey and I have waded some rough tides. But in the end all the inconvenience our relationship brings is overpowered by all the moments together like this and if you don’t find those moments overpowering the inconvenience a good relationship might bring then maybe it’s time to sit yourself down for a talk. We each make small sacrifices and bring our own baggage to the table, but each trial is worth it for our overall goal. Aubrey and I make sure to let the other know how much we appreciate each other for the work, patience and confidence we have in our journey. I mean, things get weird, they get messy and a lot of moving boxes are involved but these perfect moments make every little inconvenience like Aubrey’s crazy love of 12 AM Walmart runs worth it.

 Hey guys, it’s Aubrey again, I hope this post made you realize that Matt and I’s relationship is by no means perfect but rather always a game of trades. We’re both strong headed people but in the end, we move together to support each other in our goals and passions. In today’s times it can be so easy to focus on ourselves and what is important to us, Me Myself and I (am I right), but don’t let the idea of not getting your way stop you from pursuing the trials and tribulations of a relationship. 
 
I mean, who knows if Matt and I would even be together if I had made the choice to stay in New England and send him to Dallas on his own. I guess we’ll never know what the fate had in mind but I do know a move that started off as a major inconvenience for me has allowed me to grow as a person, business owner, and most importantly Matt’s stylist.
 
Which brings me to my next point how cute is the Vineyard Vines couple assemble? If you watched our how to improve your boyfriend’s style video you already know how obsessed Matt is with Vineyard Vines breaker pants, its a go-to for any special occasion. Oh and you can catch me in this light-weight embroidered dress all summer long, I’ve never gotten so many compliments on a striped dress before. Not only is it the perfect shift shape but it also looks great when paired with a jean jacket for cool New England evenings on The Vineyard. Okay, that’s all I have for you guys and please leave a comment below with your opinion on this article, would love to hear your relationship advice/thoughts.

An Introvert Guide To Maneuver a Week-Long Group Vacation

An Introvert Guide To Maneuver a Week-Long Group Vacation | The Coastal Confidece Aubrey Yandow-3-7

OUTFIT DETAILS

JumpsuitSunglassesEarringsNecklaceShoes

I’ve always been a huge fan of personality tests, and I know I’m not alone here. If you’ve never taken a personality test before stop what you are doing and take this test real quick. The first time I ever took a personality test was for one of my management classes in business school and to say it’s enlightening is an understatement. I’ve actually had the same personality type since I took the test way back in 2012, and each time I reread my personality description it’s like hitting the nail on the head. Now whether you love personality tests like me, or hate them like Matt, it’s good to know what makes you jive and what burns you out. Which brings me to basically the nutshell of this post, how this INFJ maneuvered a week-long group vacation. 

If I’m being honest with you all I have always hated group activities. I mean, going to camp as a kid was a hard pass for me, in college, I attended the bare minimum of group activities required of me and I even avoided group sports, which is why I loved the swim team. I love being around people but I don’t necessarily ever want to be the center of attention or have to compete for a group’s attention. I mean it’s just not me. I hate the craziness of groups and I really value quality time with people over quantity. And if I’m being transparent  I just don’t think I get that quality time I need with people in a big group. I guess to sum it up my best friend in the entire world lives in San Francisco and even though I basically see her maybe once a year, she’s still my best friend because we always make room in our schedules for that quality time. We’ll call each other to just catch up and just have that present one-on-one time. I mean Jennifer sometimes knows more about the happenings in my life than anyone else because we both jive off of authenticity and present moments, not late night drinking confessions.

Okay before I get down and dirty with how I survived a group vacation, ‘champagne problems’ I know, but let’s chat about this outfit. The weekend before heading to Costa Rica I ran into J.Crew to return a bathing suit that didn’t fit and ended up leaving the store with wayyyy to much stuff. But what’s new!  When I walked into J.Crew I instantly fell in love with this retro pink jumpsuit, effortlessly styled on the mannequin and had to try it on. Matt has the most brutal fashion advice/criticism and I was shocked when I walked out of the fitting room and he LOVED the look. With Matt’s surprising approval and finally fitting into a jumpsuit that wasn’t too long for my 5′ 3″ body, I purchased the jumpsuit and paired it with these cat-eyed sunglasses and nautical ball earrings. It was probably my favorite look of all vacation and I think you can tell that by the energy of these photos. 

Okay now back to this group-vacation breakdown. Now, when I first found out that my dad decided to do a large group vacation I was raising the veto flag and waving it hard. For the longest time, I thought I avoided big groups because of social anxiety but really I avoid them because they just burn me the heck out. I jive off of getting to really know people one on one, hearing their thoughts, what they stand for and my favorite talking topic their life plans. I mean I love a strategic future more than anyone you’ve ever met. But my dad was pretty set on having a huge group vacation, so I used a few of the following tricks to keep my energy levels up and my attitude positive.

+ Have An Alone Day: I always say I’m an introverted extrovert. I always seem to be thrown into a decision-making position in the group, whether it is picking a restaurant, making the plans for an excursion or even something as simple as booking the hotel or checking people into airline flights. Somehow someway, I always end up with the power to make the decision, maybe that’s because by nature I’m a decisive person, but nothing drains me out more than having to make decisions for a large group of people who don’t want to make a decision. 

So halfway through the vacation, my sister Tessa and I decided to part from the group and have an alone day, and to be honest, it was probably one of my favorite days of the vacation. Having quality time with Tessa one on one, having space and clarity to create amazing video content and recharge my battery, was exactly what I needed to finish off the vacation strong. I did the same thing in Italy when I went with Jennifer for three weeks. While in Italy I passed on one of the excursions and took my laptop to a local cafe to sip on cappuccinos and watch the Lizzie McGuire movie ALONE. Maybe that’s weird but it was exactly what I needed to feel re-inspired. 

+ Do What Makes You Jive: I honestly work seven days a week from the moment I open my eyes to the moment I rest my head on my pillow and I LOVE IT! I mean I love every part of the process, from shooting the content to writing the content to actually getting to share it all with you all, I LOVE IT. I’m the happiest when I’m working, and for the first three days of vacation, I tried to ‘take a vacation’ from my job which was a rookie mistake. 

I did all the correct steps, I put my Out Of The Office reply message on all my contact forms and decided I’d check out for the full week…which ended quickly. By the third day of vacation I felt completely burnt out, I was literally over vacation and craving work. Weird? Maybe, but ruining The Coastal Confidence is what gives me energy so I quickly ended up diving back into work.

Of course, I wanted to fit in with the group and go out late for late night bar shenanigans but I just can’t do that on the daily. For people like Matt and my dad, who are strong extroverts, bar shenanigans are life to them but for me being at a bar is draining, I’d much rather be outside on the patio responding to your DMs or calling photos from that days shoot. Doing what makes you jive doesn’t mean your anti-social it means you’re putting yourself first. 

+ Try And Carve Out Alone Time With Individuals on The Trip: Again this one was essential for me to survive a week-long group vacation. Whenever I’m in a group bigger than six I just check out, I don’t even do it on purpose it’s just my personality. So I used moments like car rides, walks, or late night snacking sessions with whoever was in the kitchen, to get that quality time I really wanted. 

I mean did I get a chance to get to know everyone on vacation, no. In fact, I think I saw Matt like once the whole vacation, and that was for a photoshoot, BUT I did get to spend some quality time with people I rarely get to see. If you’re an introvert heading on a big group vacation maybe try to plan lunch dates or breakfast runs with the people you really want to get to know, hopefully, that tactic will give you the quality time you need.

Okay, that’s all the tips I have for introverts heading on a group vacation. In the end, I had a blast on vacation. Now, would I do another large group vacation over 10 people again, of course. The trip was so much fun and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way, but I’m curious what personality are you?

Leave a comment below with your personality type or if you don’t want to take the test your horoscope sign below. I’m a Gemini which basically sums up my introverted extrovert personality, to the tee.

Why Strategic Goal Setting Is Key: For Your Business & Life

April 16th, 2018

successful goal setting and to-do lists New England The Coastal Confidence Aubrey Yandow

Happy Monday. I feel like this is the perfect Monday morning post to read and hopefully, it will get you excited and motivated for the week to come. Today I’m sharing some #tbt images with you all as the weather hasn’t been coroprating with our recent photoshoot schedule. But we are just going to roll with it, and sit down with you all to talk about the one skill you need to master to turn your side hustle into a successful business, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and take notes. When push comes to shove running your own flourishing blog, brand or even life comes down to being able to effectively create and manage a to-do. It’s honestly as simple as that, think I’m wrong? Well, below we will dive into why it’s important to implement to-do lists within your business and how to create an optimized to-do list of your own. 


 

Why…


 

I know what you’re thinking, Aubrey, you’re putting way too much weight on a silly to-do list, but give it a chance, and stay with me. A classic handwritten to-do list is how I’ve not only successfully learned to manage myself, but also each member of the TCC Crew, and it’s been a game changer when it comes to our performance, communication and meeting brand timelines. If that hasn’t sold you on creating a to-do list of your own, here are specific examples of why you should. 

+ My Unpopular viewpoint on goals: Goals are the first step in turning your idea into a business but don’t stop at the first step. I’ve been blogging for over five years now and in that timespan, I’ve seen so many acquaintances start blogs and brands, to only quickly abandon them within the first year. I’m very transparent about how slow growth can seem in the digital space. Yes going viral overnight and waking up to millions of subscribers is #goals but it isn’t realistic. If you are serious about taking your passion project into something more you really need to set up systems, aka goal based to-do lists. Goals just don’t happen, recognizing the endpoint is important, but to accomplish the goal you actually need to put in hard work. Whenever our crew comes up with a goal we make a to-do list to support it. The to-do list usually includes three to seven steps we need to take to reach that goal. Without our to-do lists, our goals would honestly be less likely to accomplish due to the fact that goals can seem overwhelming or impossible at times. Which brings me to my next point. 

+ Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.” —Newt Gingrich: I mean that quote basically sums it up. When you are trying to launch a new brand, business or trying to finish college with a four-year degree on time; at some point in your journey, you are going to feel overwhelmed with all that has to get done and the amount of work on your plate. This is where to-do lists really come in handy. When you are a student or self-employed you are single handily in charge of managing yourself and meeting your deadlines. No one is telling you how to spend your time, which is a blessing and a curse. You could work all day and binge The Crown at night or you could sleep all day and work all night; it doesn’t matter when you do the work it just has to get done. This is something I thrive on but it also means I’m responsible for making sure I have all my deliverables ready for multiple deadlines, that can get overwhelming at times. To-do lists help me stay on track and work as a buffer to my deadlines. I make sure to complete everything listed on my to-do list within the day before clocking out. No excuses! I stop working when my to-do list is done for better or for worse. 

+ Accountability: Finally I share my to-do list with my entire TCC Crew and their to-do lists with each other, for a few important reasons. My favorite part about to-do lists is the simple fact that either you did the task or you didn’t do it. No excuses. It makes tasks black and white while holding everyone accountable for their part in completing a goal. Together we revisit our to-do lists, as a crew, weekly and break down what we completed and what we didn’t. Being accountable to my crew, sharing the list with your friends, mom, sisters, whoever; makes your to-do list a done list quicker than you would think. 

Okay so if you have something you really want to accomplish first sit down and write down your goals followed by a goal system to-do list. Trust me when I say, this will make all the difference in not only making your goals a reality but also seeing results in real time instead of expecting all your goals to be accomplished overnight. Now let’s jump into how I create my to-do lists.

How…


 

+ Write It Down: Recently I’ve stumbled upon this productivity planner, which actually inspired me to write this post. Now normally I would use this exact system within a dollar store notepad, I try not to spend too much money on notebooks as I often lose them, but I decided to splurge on the planner in hopes of inspiring you all to get your to-do lists in check. First and foremost, writing down your goals is really important to actually achieve them. I mean who hasn’t ended up on Facebook after opening up their computer to do a specific task. By writing down your goals and keeping the notepad visible throughout your day helps you regain focus when focus has been lost. 

 

+ Ranking Tasks: I love this productivity planner because it ranks tasks in order of importance. This organizing system has helped my to-do list become at least twice as efficient as before. Naturally, you want to get the easy tasks done with first, for instance, writing next week’s blog posts are always on my weekly to-do list but they aren’t necessarily something I need to tackle first in order to move my business forward. I mean, I know I’ll get them done but do they need to be completed bright and early on Monday morning? Not really. Take time to prioritize your tasks and tackle harder tasks earlier in the week helps me keep up the blog’s momentum and also gives me extra time if my first tactic to completing the task fails. 

 

+ Reflection: It is super important at the end of the week to reflect on your to-do lists/goals. Did you not check something off of your list because you didn’t try? Or because the tactic you were using to accomplish that goal failed? It’s important to reflect and pivot your to-do list in order to keep yourself aware and in charge of your goals. If there’s a will there’s a way right!


 

Ending on that note, I’m off. Matt and I are currently in Costa Rica, so make sure to follow along with our adventures over on Instagram. Oh and you bet I brought my to-do list book to Costa Rica, I love working while traveling, I always think of the best ideas…am I the only one? Anyway, leave a comment below if you love or hate to-do lists. I’m interested to hear what you guys think of them and have a great week.

How To Improve Your Boyfriends Style, This Spring

April 4th, 2018

If I’m being honest with you all, which I always strive to do, then I have to tell you that this is one of my favorite videos we’ve filmed to date. Today Matt and I are sitting down to share our style evolution, how I improved Matt’s style, and how you can improve your boyfriend’s style this spring.

I really hope you guys find this video helpful and learn a thing or two. As always PLEASE reach out with any questions or any boyfriend makeover stories of your own.

15 Patriots Bars Across 15 Cities, To Watch The Super Bowl At

15 Patriots Bars Across 15 U.S. Cities, To Watch The Super Bowl At-9742

Just like that Matt and I are leaving Dallas and heading out to San Francisco to capture, what I believe is, one of the prettiest cities in America. Not only was this weekend the perfect weekend to get away, it also happens to be Super Bowl weekend…LET’S GO PATRIOTS! To be honest, at first Matt was hesitant about traveling on such an important weekend, but I insisted that no matter the city, Patriot fans are in it to win it. Hopefully literally.  

You might remember that last year, Matt and I were fortunate enough to attend what I believe has been the best Super Bowl yet. We were in Dallas at the time and just three nights before the big game found tickets on Craigslist and well the rest is history if you want all the details make sure to check out this post where I share our Super Bowl experience.  Anyway, back to going to San Francisco, I actually went to college in California and my best friend currently lives outside the city. After going over two years without seeing each other, I figured it was about time for a visit. Matt has actually never been to San Francisco either and I’ve only visited once before so I’m giddy with excitement about getting to revisit one of my favorite cities. 

With that being said, I started this blog when I was attending college in California with the idea that you could live a New England lifestyle no matter the coast, thus The Coastal Confidence. So this weekend I’m bringing that mission statement to life, while Matt and I will literally be on the other coast of the country. We plan on celebrating the big game with all the hoopla and hurrahs of an official New England Tailgate. Whilst doing my research, I figured I’d throw in a couple more cities and somehow we ended with this epic post.

    • Los Angeles — Sonny McLean’s: This Irish Gastro Pub in Santa Monica is like a little piece of New England on the West Coast.  With homemade Shepherd’s Pies, Fish & Chips, and New England Ipswich Fried Clams; you’ll feel like you’re in Massachusetts the moment you step in the bar. Seats are filling up fast, so reserve a seat ahead of time to watch the big game with fellow Patriot Fans.  
    • Chicago — Theory: I mean not only is this bar aesthetically pleasing and perfect for that game day Instagram, it’s also an ‘official’ Patriots bar! So gather up all your Tom Brady jerseys and Patriots beanies and head on over. 
    • Houston — Biggio’s: Between ceiling to floor TV displays and a sweet downtown location, this bar is a great place to watch the big game if you’re visiting. Matt and I visited this spot when we attended the Super Bowl last year and I promise you won’t miss a moment of the game with the amount of TVs present. 
    • Seattle — Bar Harbor Bar: I mean doesn’t the name say it all. This delicious seafood restaurant is the ‘official Patriots bar’ for Pats fans in Seattle. Better yet the event is free for anyone to attend on a first come first serve base, but everyone is asked to leave a donation for the Jimmy Fund! True Boston fans, am I right! 
    • Philadelphia —  Field House: If you happen to be in Philly for the Super Bowl, I’m sure the city will be nuts! With a ton of events to pick from, I’d recommend checking out Field House. With 100% of their 40 beers on tap coming from within 100 miles of Philadelphia, this bar is a hit for sports fans and beer connoisseurs.
    • Denver — Three Dogs Tavern: Someone on Yelp described this bar as ‘An oasis of blue, silver, and red in a sea of orange’ and I just about died. Anyway again this is an ‘official Patriots meeting place’ for Pats fans in the city of Denver.

    • San Diego — Barleymash: I mean between the rich food and the prime Gaslamp District, Downtown location, what isn’t to love about this bar. Watch the game here and then head outside to a street full of restaurants, bars, and dessert shops to pick from. 
    • Dallas — The Nodding Donkey: The Nodding Donkey is one of the Best Sports Bars in Dallas, with a prime Uptown location. With great food and great beer specials, this place will be a hoot to watch the game at. 
    • Washington D.C — Capitol Lounge: An ‘official’ Patriots bar’ where even the waiters are decked out in jerseys. This restaurant is the perfect place to come together with New Englanders and get that team spirit pumping. 
    • Austin — B.D. Riley’s Irish Pub Downtown: Someone on Yelp described his experience at this bar as ‘hoist a pint every Sunday with fellow Pats fans, Chowdaheadz, transplanted New Englanders and enlightened Austinites. Oh and if that didn’t sell you on visiting this ‘official Patriots bar’ it’s also conveniently located in Downtown Austin on Sixth Street.
    • Nashville — Whiskey Rhythms Saloon: If you want to see what an ‘official Patriots bar looks like just click on their Facebook Page. Whether you just moved to Nashville or just visiting, join your fellow New Englanders to cheer on our Patriots. 
    • San Francisco — Connecticut Yankee: I mean when I saw this bar I instantly knew this is where we would be watching the Super Bowl, just check out their website, it basically screams Aubrey and Matt. I guess I’ll see SF TCC readers there! 
  • New York City — Professor Thom’s: This diehard Patriots fan bar is the perfect place to watch the big game and explore the East Village. Oh, and if you’re a Harpoon drinker this bar is for you because Professor Thom’s is renowned for having the largest selection of Harpoons outside of Massachusets. 
  • Charleston — Hometown BBQFootball and BBQ, basically any guys dream. If you are visiting Charleston I would recommend stopping here for some good ole southern comfort food. Nothing is more game day appropriate than BBQ ribs and pulled pork.

I know, I know; that was a lot of information but I hope this post inspires you to attend one of these sports bars or look up one of your own in the area. Watching the Super Bowl with other New England fans, no matter the city, is a great way to meet new people, come together as a region and root on our favorite team. Now Matt and I are officially landing in San Francisco so all I have to say is GO PATS!

How To Feel A Part of A City, While Being A Tourist

How To Feel Apart of A City, While Being A Tourist-9048

SweaterJeansShoesNecklaceBag

2018 is our year of travel and I know I’ve probably already stated that about fifteen times, but Matt and I are sooooo excited to travel as much as possible this year and to bring you all along. As some of you might know, Matt was assigned to work as an account manager in a Dallas office for two years, and with only six months left, we are really trying to cram in as many experiences as possible, before settling down back in New England.  

We kicked off our year of travel first with Central Connecticut, then Vermont and now Dallas. For the next two weeks, our crew will share posts pertaining to our favorite areas, neighborhoods, and restaurants that Dallas has to offer. Before we jump right into traveling guides and itineraries, I’m going to share one of my favorite travel tips with you all, how to feel a part of a city, while being a tourist. 

 I actually learned this trick through experience, when I was studying abroad in Florence. When you’re traveling it is so easy to feel lost or lonely, especially if you are traveling alone or for a long duration of time. I found that having a routine or a spot, that you can go to, to plan your day or finish off some emails each morning really made me feel more settled while traveling. To be honest, I’m by no means a world-traveler, in fact, I would much rather prefer to stay at home, but having this small morning ritual of; waking up, getting dressed, putting on my walking shoes and walking over to a local coffee shop or bakery; was a great way feel a part of whatever city I am in.

I kid you not, having a routine and getting outside of your hotel room in the morning and into a local spot, is the key to feeling a sense of belonging and community. First off it’s a great way to see what that culture treats themselves to for breakfast (yummm) and secondly, coffee shops are aesthetically set-up to bring people together in a collaborative environment. Whether you’re traveling alone and want to meet new friends or traveling with a friend and just want to hear the local gossip, coffee shops are a great way to feel out the local scene. 

 So the other morning Matt and I woke up and decided to explore a district of Dallas we had never visited prior. It was a beautiful day in Dallas, almost 70 degrees in January! And when we opened our car doors to the Knox-Henderson district, we could feel the energy and excitement this winter-heatwave had brought upon shoppers and locals. The streets were bustling and after passing about two coffee shops Matt and I decided on the Village Baking Co. Boulangerie. This shop was filled to the brim with a large variety of specialty baked goods and pastries to choose from, it was honestly hard to decide on what to purchase. So hard in fact that I ordered one breakfast croissant and two desserts, oops.  

Matt and I spent almost an hour and a half in the coffee shop talking to the bakers behind the counter and hearing the lengths they take to create such beautiful baked goods. Of course, Matt had to interrogate them about their espresso machine after he asked for an iced coffee and watched them make an Americano, his mind was actually blown. After we were both caffeinated and on a sugar high we departed the Baking Co. and headed outside to enjoy the fresh air and shops the district had to offer.

 How To Feel Apart of A City, While Being A Tourist-9050Again, I left the district feeling like I had a chance to feel it out. Maybe I’m odd, but I love figuring out what makes certain city districts unique and how they draw specific types of people in. Maybe that’s just the marketing major in me or maybe I spend too many hours reading books on Facebook Ad Targeting, but seeing how restaurants, coffee shops, and people can transform a small area into a ‘district’ with almost a life of its own, still amazes me to this day. 

Overall the Knox-Henderson district was thriving with a bustling restaurant scene and some amazing storefronts, I was grateful Matt and I had taken the time to get to know a new part of Dallas, well at least a new part for us. We can’t wait to bring you along with us next week for a few more of our favorite districts of Dallas, and until then I’d love to hear how you guys embrace community as a tourist. Leave a comment below, with any tips or ticks and have a great weekend.

Guide to Driving in the Snow

Guide to Driving in the Snow | The Coastal Confidence

ShovelIce Melting SaltSnow BrushBootsJeansJacket

This post has been long overdue, I mean with the number of snow-covered roads New Englanders have already navigated this year, I feel like this post had to get published sooner than later. While I’ve been openly accepting and appreciating the beautiful snowy scenes, this winter has thrown at us, I’ll never be laissez-faire about having to drive, in the snow. I initially wanted Matt to write this post because he has a lot more experience when it comes to driving in winter conditions, but due to his busy schedule (he’s too much) I’m here to share the notes he provided me with.

Driving in the snow will always be my least favorite winter activity, I mean I would rather walk to the supermarket than drive if snow or ice hits. Yet, sometimes you have to pull on your big-boy snow boots and get in your car and go. When I was chatting with Matt about this post he shared some amazing tips and tricks on how to get you from point A to point B, in the safest way possible. So here is our guide to driving in the snow!

+ Check Your Local Conditions: First things first, Matt always urges me to check driving conditions the night before any early morning meetings when snow or below zero temperatures are on the radar. Will there be snowy roads? Icy roads, from melted snow that refroze overnight? It is important to understand the conditions you are driving in and most importantly inform others, that you are heading out in bad weather and when you think you’ll be back. It’s so easy to get stuck or skid off the road in poor conditions, so make sure to let others know where you are going and when they should expect to see you back.

+ Clear Snow Off Your Car: I mean this is an obvious one if you live in Connecticut because you can actually get a ticket for driving with snow-covered car roofs or windows. Nothing is scary than being behind a car on a day after a snow storm to see a huge chunk of snow sliding off their roof and onto the road or even worse the hood of your car. Before heading out just clear snow from the roof, car lights and windshield wipers and windows.

+ Driving Tips: It takes longer to accelerate, decelerate, turn and maneuver when driving in snow, so drive slow and give yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. When driving make sure to use low-beam headlights to avoid light reflecting off the snow and give at least eight seconds in following distance, between the car in front of you and yourself. Accelerate slowly, giving your tires time to grab the snowy roads and move forward with control; alongside breaking slowly and lightly overtime to stay in control and prevent spinouts due to sudden stops.

+ Don’t Stop & Won’t Stop: If there is a lot of snow on the road, stopping can become an issue. Snowy Road conditions can leave you and your tires with little to no traction on the road, which can make starting up from a full stop quite tricky. When it comes to breaking, just keep the heel of your foot on the floor and break with the ball of your foot to apply steady pressure; whatever you do resist from slamming on the gas or your breaks. Slamming on your breaks will lock up your tires, thus preventing your tires from gripping the snow and coming to a stopping point.

+ Drive With a Shovel: If you know you must go out in the snow, grab a shovel, flashlight, and a small bag of salt to place in your car in case you get stuck in a snowbank. Getting stuck in snowy road conditions is not a fun time but having a shovel to help free your tires and salt to provide traction, will make the experience a tiny bit less horrid.

+ Stay at Home: Ideally if it is snowy and winter advisories are out, I would highly recommend staying home. Driving in the snow is no joke, so if you have the choice to stay put, take that option. Work from home, stay safe and wait until the roads are safely plowed before venturing out into New England’s winter wonderland.

Okay, those are the tips Matt and I have for you all today. I would love to hear any tips you guys have below. Also, I can’t believe we’ve already had so many snow days this early in Winter, I feel like this is going to be one chilly season, anyone else agree?

Why You Need Renters Insurance

Why You Need Renters Insurance for Your Apartment | The Coastal Confidence

Oh boy. 

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to just sit down and unload the current situation Matt and I have found ourselves in. To be honest, it feels good to hit the pause button on New England content for a second and fill you all in on what has been the craziest start to 2018. Our TCC Crew jumped head first into 2018, aka our year of travel, by booking three trips in the next three months. Remember when I talked about using our vacations days and being over-ambitious in this post; well I 100% overbooked our schedules BUT I was happy that we were finally using our vacation days and making the most of what is going to be an amazing year. 

Anyway, on January 3rd I flew back to Dallas and decided to take a ‘half-sick day’. I knew our crew had a busy three months ahead of us and after being sick through the entire holiday season, I really wanted to take a day to myself. I simply wanted to watch Christmas movies, relax and rejuvenate my mind, body, and soul. I proceeded to turn my email auto-response on, told the crew I was sick (aka playing hooky) and got back into my pajamas to watch a whole bunch of Christmas movies. I made some hot tea, curled up onto the couch, put Christmas in Connecticut on and was ready for a peaceful and tech-free day. 

The joke was on me though guys, just 10 minutes into Christmas in Connecticut, I called Matt because our fire alarm was going off. Why did I call Matt? Mostly to complain because our fire alarm goes off almost monthly for ‘testing’, but as I’m on the phone with Matt I peer out of my window to see a downpour of water coming from the unit above ours straight onto the balcony.  

As I looked up at the amount of water coming down from the above unit, all I could say was…Matt this isn’t good.

After hanging up the phone I quickly gathered Eloise (our cat) and headed outside to notify the office. Matt was on lunch break so within 15 minutes he met me outside of the apartment, to go back up and investigate. I waited with Eloise in the car only to hear a frantic Matt screaming EVERYTHING IS UNDER WATER. Our entire apartment, minus our newly furnished bedroom, which you can see here, was calf deep in water. Let’s just say this was the least relaxing sick day, I’ve ever taken.

Now looking back, Matt and I were extremely fortunate that I had been home for the flooding. We were able to get Eloise out of the apartment and into a dry place, whilst moving our expensive items like TVs, computers, flash drives, photos and sentimental things to a dry place (aka our bedroom). Basically, the pipes in the apartment above us broke, leading their sprinkler system to go off and flood their entire apartment, and our apartment got the aftermath as water came in from the ceiling completely destroying things like our couch, rugs, chairs, blankets etc. I mean the water was pretty nasty and ended up staining a majority of our furniture. 

Overall, Matt and I were so lucky that nothing that couldn’t be replaced got damaged and we were wise enough to have invested in renters insurance; which brings me to our post today. I honestly thought renters insurance was silly. I kept telling Matt things like: we don’t need it, I’ve lived in apartments before and nothing has ever happened, and basically every excuse in the book to talk him out of it. However Matt refused to budge on this issue and we ended up investing in renters insurance and honestly looking back, THANK GOD FOR MATT. 

With the help of our insurance company this issue has been quickly resolved and dealt with but without them, we would have been in a serious loss. So Matt’s going to take over and give you a few tips and tricks as to why you need renters insurance:  

Why You Need Renters Insurance for Your Apartment | The Coastal Confidence

Why you need renters insurance: 


 

Many people like Aubrey don’t see the importance of insurance until a loss occurs like a flood, fire or car accident, and once this happens frankly it’s just too late to recover all of your damaged items. Your everyday items like your phone, laptop, clothes, and home decor values add up and you will quickly realize that after a loss. We are very thankful that we invested the $100-150 into a renters insurance policy because everything that was damaged from the loss will be paid for, providing us with the funds to repurchase the items. 

Another thing Aubrey didn’t consider when considering insurance was, where do you stay or eat when an incident does occur? Now, if you’re lucky enough to live near family, maybe you can bunk up with them, but with no immediate family in the Dallas area, Aubrey and I were out an apartment and in need of a place to stay. Again, thankfully we invested in renters insurance because they too provide us with funds to stay in a hotel and purchase meals until our apartment is habitable, which ended up being over two weeks in our circumstance. 

First and foremost, it is very important to talk to your landlord or apartment complex about their insurance policies before signing your lease, because many places only offer liability coverage within your agreement. This means that you’ll have coverage for the property itself but none of your personal items would be covered in the event of a loss. This is something that many college students including myself didn’t realize until our computers and TVs were stolen from our dorm room. It was our fault for just expecting the college to cover our personal property and not take the initiative of finding out what insurance policy we had while living at college. If your apartment complex’s insurance doesn’t cover PERSONAL PROPERTY or LOSS OF USE then invest the $100-150 into a renters insurance policy. No matter how you roll the dice, it’s not easy enduring a loss, especially if your personal and sentimental items end up damaged but having an insurance policy is a safety net that will make you rest that night knowing all of your items will be financially covered.


 

All in all, I hope this post inspires you to take a second out of your busy week to consider your insurance policy. Trust me when I say it’s literally the last thing I want to do, but looking back I’m so thankful Matt nagged me into signing the contract. On an exciting note, Matt and I are moving back to our unit today, and I can’t wait to have a kitchen again. Please leave a comment below if you’ve had a similar experience or any other insurance tips and tricks.

Best Ways To Spend a New England Snow Day

Best Ways To Spend a New England Snow Day | The Coastal Confidence

It’s that time of year guys…snow day time! I’m still not sure if there is anything more exciting than waking up to a snow day, and finding out school has been canceled. I can remember, and I’m going to date myself here, AIMing all my schoolmates, to anxiously see if snow had covered their whimsical roads and wood shingled roofs yet. I bet a few of you did the same, because honestly it only takes a few inches in one town, to set off a chain of delays, early dismissals and days off.

My sister Tessa, and I’m sure most of New England, experienced the rare enjoyment of a snow day this past week, leaving us with an extra day to film and a great backdrop to work with. We ended up using the entire day as an opportunity to share our favorite ways to spend a New England snow day with you all. I’m not too key on driving in the snow, that’s more Matt’s forte, so all of these activities are right at your backdoor. Honestly, it was a really good day and I’m so excited to share the best ways to spend a New England Snow Day with you all.

+ Go Sledding: I don’t care how old you are, you’re never too old to go sledding. I actually prefer tubbing down snowy hills. I feel like it adds a buffer in case I hit a tree or fence, but I decided to rough it with this classic sled. That morning my sister Sarah and I got dressed up to the nines and headed down to our friend’s house in hopes of sledding down any hill we could find. I admit we had to walk quite a while to find a hill worthy but the gorgeous snow-covered trails made the walk worth it.

+ Make Hot Cocoa: I mean, this is kind of obvious, but I’ll throw it in there. Matt and I make hot cocoa every night but the trick is having the perfect amount of whipped cream and marshmallows on hand. Actually, Matt’s consumption of hot cocoa constantly reminds me of the fake Santa, from the Santa Clause 2 movie, comment down below if you know what the heck I’m talking about.

+ Light a Fire: I truly think the only way to warm up your bones on a snow day is by lighting a fire. Not only is it romantic but it also keeps you warm and really sets the ambiance on a snowy day. I could light a fire and edit images all day, while being completely and utterly content.

+ Play a Board Game: Matt’s family loves playing games, and it truly is a great way to bring everyone together and somewhat involved and moving. I asked Matt to list off some of his favorite snow day games, which you can purchase here, here and here; but by far my favorite snow day game has to be chess. I’m really not that good at it but, I like how thought-provoking it can be.

+ Fill The Bird Feeders: This tip comes from my Dad, he is very keen on making sure the birds, squirrels, and automobiles are fully fed and somewhat warm on snow days. So the night before the storm, he’ll usually go out and fill up each feeder, it sounds kind of mundane, but I promise you it can be fun watching all the different types of birds that come to visit during the snowy day.

+ Do You Want To Build A Snow Man: I mean, one of my favorite things to do after a snow day is to take a drive down Main Street and see all the decked out Snow Men and Snow Women bopping around people’s front yards. It really brings me great joy, to be honest, so I try to pay it forward by building at least one snowman around this time of year.

+ Edit Pictures: I love editing images on snowy days. Don’t ask me why, but curling up to my computer with a cup of hot cocoa sounds just perfect in every which way. So I always try to optimize my time by getting some work done. You can read more about how I physically edit my images in this blog post here.

+ Quality Time: Most importantly being snowed in gives you plenty of opportunities to spend quality time with your family. It sounds cheesy but snow days are still to this day, some of my favorite childhood memories I have with my siblings. From watching my dad cut down twiggy trees to allow us to sled on the hill in our backyard, to my mom helping us take off our snow boots, because we couldn’t bend over in our snow gear, are some of the fondest and funniest memories I have. So enjoy the day and your time snowed in with your loved ones.

Overall, I hope this post inspires you to look at a snowy day with a glass half full mentality, while nobody necessary enjoys being snowed in at least you have a chance to make the most out of it. So stay warm, bundle up and leave your favorite snow day activity in the comment section below!
