Hauls are becoming more and more popular in the blogging world so I figured I would jump on the trend. I personally love watching haul videos on YouTube as well as reading about them on my favorite blogs. Last week I was on vacation which if you read my previous posts you already know. With going on vacation down south I usually always put aside a few hundred dollars just for shopping. You could say I have a shopping addiction or you could just say I am an idiot. Either way I ain’t mad. lol. One of the stores I went to was a boutique called Foxy Flamingo. There I purchased the two bralettes, the candle (which smells heavenly), the necklace, and the stamped home wave ring. Everything came to around $130 which I thought was average for most boutiques. I can’t wait to wear the bralettes because the material is so comfy! The second place I went to was J. Crew. There I bought the silver sandals, earrings, necklace, and two tops which aren’t pictured but will be featured in future outfit posts. I actually did pretty good and only spend like $150! Of course I had to stop at the Lilly Specialty Store called Life’s A Beach. It’s pretty obvious what things I bought from there because if you know Lilly they have bold and girly prints! Lastly, I bought the pineapple ring and wave ring from a boutique that sells Pura Vida in which you can buy off their website! I wasn’t expecting to buy this much stuff but I guess things happen haha!

 

Savannah, Georgia 2016

I finally was able to visit Savannah after so many years! Unfortunately I only went for a short weekend but I was able to do a lot! When we flew in on Friday we got in late so we went to dinner at Rocks on the Roof which was a rooftop restaurant that looked over the river. After that we went and walked around City Market then headed back to the hotel for the night. Saturday morning we woke up early and went to breakfast at Mirabelle café where I had the best Belgian waffles I’ve ever tasted. I still dream about them months later. Lol. When we finished eating we headed across the street to go inside of The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. It was absolutely breathtaking. While there my Mom, Aunt, Grandmother, and myself lit a candle in my Paps memory which was really cool! After that we headed to a bunch of boutiques and shops as well as some historic landmarks. This part of my day was probably my favorite part of the whole entire trip! Thanks to one of my blogger friends who is from Savannah she told me about a few really cute boutiques! I went to Red clover first and then to Impeccable Pig. The boutiques are so much nicer than the ones here at home because there is such a different style and feel. After shopping around there, we went to Kendra Scott and Kate Spade. For lunch we ate at a local restaurant called Trailer Park where I had an amazing Cobb Salad! Later that night we took a haunted carriage ride around town where we were told the history and ghost stories of the town. I found out why many homes have fish statues/decor as well as blue painted doors. Considering Savannah is extremely haunted, the fish are supposed to keep the ghost away because they think water is near and the blue doors resemble the water. That being said water stops ghost from passing. So people’s homes can not be affected by ghosts. It is definitely something to look up and read about! Sunday morning we woke up and headed to the airport. Unfortunately they over sold the flight so we had to rent a car and drive all the way to Charolette’s Airport where we finally were able to fly home! All in all it was a great trip and I can’t wait to go back and hopefully call it home one day!

Houston, Texas 2017

Last month I made my first trip to Texas to visit family! While I was there I had my first rodeo experience. It was literally the wildest thing I have ever seen! I flew in on Friday landing around 4:00pm and then of course had to go shopping! I had recently come accross a Platos Closet insta that was in Katy and saw that they had posted a few really cute things so we swung by there after dropping all of our stuff off at the house! I got a Lilly Pulitzer dress new with tags retailing $138 for $16. I was able to flip it on Posh and make $40. I also snagged a Kendra Scott necklace! Ballin on a budget 🙂 After shopping at Platos we went to a western store called Cavender’s. I picked up some jewlery for the rodeo then we just went back to the house for dinner and I went to bed early. On Saturday we woke up early and headed to Houston for the Rodeo. It was probably one of the coolest things I have ever been to. We were there for hours though so by the time 7:00pm hit we left to go grab some Greek food at Niko Niko’s. It is now my favorite Greek place! After an hour or so we headed back out for the hour drive back to Katy. I passed out the second my head hit the pillow. On Sunday we had a chill day and just hungout by the pool. For dinner we drove back out to Houston to my second cousin’s house for dinner. I was so burnt from sitting by the pool all afternoon I was pretty miserable. (Typical) We then left there around 8:00pm and once again I passed out when I got back to the house. Unfortunately, Monday we had to fly home so we woke up early for the hour drive back to the airport. After about a three hour flight I was back in the Burgh. Definitely can’t wait to visit again!

Mirabelle Cafe, Savannah Georgia

On my trip to Savannah last weekend, I stopped at Mirabelle Cafe for breakfast. I had the BEST waffle ever with fresh strawberries on top. It was such a relaxing atmosphere and would be a perfect place for homework or studying. I wish we had places like this back at home because I would make numerous stops a day just to taste this amazingness! I will definitely be back and probably have many dreams of eating these waffles as well {shhh}

Presque Isle 2016

With summer coming to an end my best friend and I decided to take a small road trip to Erie. With it both being our first time to Presque Isle we made sure to plan a lot of sight seeing and added in some beach time. From visiting multiple lighthouses, going to the lantern festival and eating at cool restaurants it was an awesome way to top off summer. If you ever have the opportunity to go on a random road trip, do it! Cause remember, you only live O N C E.
