My 12 Pieces For 12 Days Challenge: Minimalist Packing

Let me pose a challenge to you: On your next trip, pack only 12 pieces of clothing (or one piece for each day of your trip). On this trip to Denmark, I challenged myself to become a minimalist packing pro, and I snapped some pics along my journey.   Here’s what I am choosing to pack on my 12 day Euro trip (Hint: They are…

Italy Pt. 4: Milan Guide

Our last stop on our Italy trip with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines was Milan.  We flew out of the Malpensa airport which is about 45 minutes outside of Milan, so we figured we would spend 1 day and 1 night seeing what Milan is all about. It’s an elegant city filled with hustle and bustle, and we wanted to checkout the outskirts of the city…

NYC Day in the Life/ Unicorn Ice Cream & Brunch at Seamore’s

This post was sponsored by Uber, but all opinions are my own. There is nothing better than the Summer in NYC. Yes, it is hot and yes, the subways can be sort of stinky, but every restaurant is filled and there’s inspiring people walking around everywhere! I spent the day working in the city with Samantha, and we stopped in for brunch at Seamore’s. The…

How We Travel Light With A 7 Month Old

travel light with a 7 month old, travel with a baby, packed suitcase, away carry on

Traveling with a baby isn’t easy. It’s more of a “trip” than a vacation these days, but after tons of research I think we’ve finally figured out how to travel the lightest way possible. On this trip to Italy, we only brought 2 carry ons and 1 checked bag along with an umbrella stroller. We don’t feel weighed down by our stuff at all, yet…

My Morning Commute With Uber

This post was sponsored by Uber, but all opinions are my own. As most of you may know (or maybe not) I live about 1 hour outside of NYC in a beach town. I love the calm salty air and the sound of silence that hits me when I step off of the train. While sometimes I dream of living in NYC, Long Beach feels like my home,…

My favorite high waisted jeans// Miami Beach

I have such a tough time finding the perfect pair of high waisted denim (don’t we all?!) I have a small waist, with hips so they usually either make me look wide, or fit awkwardly. When I found this pair, I felt like they were heaven sent! Let’s just say I am having to hold myself back from buying every single style that Urban Outfitters…

Ocean Drive, Miami

It feels so good to throw on my old favorites, these overalls! They were my go-to staple when I lived in Florida, and years later they’re still so easy to throw on. Having a baby totally strips my time to myself in the morning, so I’ve learned to minimize my wardrobe and make it easy to grab my favorite staples. In my opinion, everyone should…
