Visiting The Amalfi Coast

August 7th, 2018

This post is long overdue and that’s mostly my fault but by no means was it intentional, I promise. I wasn’t planning on taking a break from blogging while traveling but was forced to, due to the fact that the internet was almost non-existent on our 9-day European cruise. I mean, it took me twenty minutes to upload an Instagram, so you can only imagine how irritating it was trying to upload videos, blog posts and photos that we had captured day by day. Initially, we had planned to blog in real-time by covering the trip day by…

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

May 21st, 2018

Whether 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…

Quepos, Costa Rica Vlog

May 9th, 2018

From the moment I found out we’d be heading back to Costa Rica this year, I knew I had to vlog the trip for you guys. Tessa was kind enough to capture moments from our trip so you guys could feel a part of the journey. I’ll be the first one to admit that vlogs aren’t natural for me and by that I mean sometimes I get so wrapped up in a moment that I forget to vlog it myself, so I’m soooo grateful to Tessa for also vlogging some shots on her camera for us.  If you…

Pajama Set Sleepwear

May 4th, 2018

  If we’re being transparent here I spend more time in my pajamas than the average person. Whether I’m having a ‘casual pajama day’ while working from home or just slipping into my pajamas at 6 PM after a busy day of photo shoots, I value nothing more than being comfortable and cozy while at home. In fact, if you’ve visited my house it’s more likely than not that you’ve seen me open the door in my pajamas. It’s a horrible trait of mine but I can’t let a door go unopen. Now usually the pajamas I’d be hanging around…

Fishing in Quepos, Costa Rica

April 30th, 2018

I mean, where do I begin with this post. I guess let’s start from the beginning, with how I ended up fishing in the first place. If you read my blog, which I hope you guys do, then you know last week I went to Costa Rica with a large group of thirteen. It was composed of my family, Matt’s family, two of my cousins and Matt’s sister’s boyfriend CJ. Way back in December when my Dad and I first starting planning the trip, and booking excursions, like our day in Manuel Antonio National Park, which you can…

An Introvert Guide To Maneuver a Week-Long Group Vacation

April 26th, 2018

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…

A Day In Manuel Antonio National Park

April 23rd, 2018

Matt and I are finally back in Dallas after a whirlwind of a week in Costa Rica. If you were wondering what the heck we were doing there, we were actually on a combined family vacation! The vacation included both my family, Matt’s family and a few extended family members… because more is merrier, right? All in all, we were a group of thirteen exploring the county and taking in its culture one restaurant at a time.    To give you guys some context, our families decided on rented a house together in Quepos, Costa Rica which was an area…

Falconry at Ashford Castle

September 8th, 2017

Yellow Rain Jacket (on sale)! || Skirt from Talbots || Shirt from Talbots || Sneakers || Bag || Camera The way I plan most of my trips now, since blogging full-time, is through story telling. That might sound weird but I always think of TCC readers and what they’d like to see and what stories they would like to hear; before finalizing any details of my trip. Just like if you were to sit down with your friend and chat about your most recent vacation, I want to bring you guys along for the best moments and stories…

Cliffs of Moher and Travel Vlog

September 6th, 2017

Yellow Rain Jacket (ON SALE!) || White Dress (on sale!) || Rain Boots || Matt’s Jacket  I’ve been so excited to share this blog post with you guys, it’s one of my favorites so far from our recent trip to Ireland. In this post and vlog, you’ll see our crew exploring what I believe is the most iconic landscape in Ireland…the Cliffs of Moher.  As our group of six made it up the Wild Atlantic Way from Kerry, our next stop was the Cliff Coast. This section of Ireland is full of iconic and dramatic cliff views, that honestly took my breath…
