Addo Elephant park was our final stop before heading to the Port Elizabeth airport to fly back to Cape Town. We spent two days in the park, staying at the new Nyathi Rest Camp.

NYFW Day 2 + My First Time at Top of The Rock!!

For “My Day 2” of NYFW (but really Day 4) I popped into the Leanne Marshall show, which absolutely blew me away. The colors were fabulous, and I absolutely LOVE the high necklines. I also loved seeing so many different shaped models on the runway, it was a breath of fresh air!   After the show, I hopped in an Uber and met up with…

South Africa Pt. 2: Hermanus, Swellendam & Knysna

South Africa Pt. 1: Cape Town

It feels crazy to say that I’ve literally been to the other side of the world and back, but after over a full day of traveling we made it to South Africa! It was actually not as daunting as I imagined getting here, but we had the mentality going into it that whatever happens, happens. If Hudson is a mess, we’ll handle it. If we’re…

My Vacation Skincare Regimen

As you guys know, we’ve been traveling A TON this Summer. My skin type is super dry, so it’s really important for me to stick to a skincare regimen, but I also don’t like to pack 8 billion different lotions and serums while we’re on the road. I was on the lookout for one serum to pack that gets the job done, and I was…

Hudson & I at Oslo Botanical Gardens!

As I mentioned in my Scandinavia Guides, the Oslo Botanical Gardens are a must-see. There’s beautiful green houses, and incredible landscaping all for FREE! I could not believe it. We absolutely love snapping photos in the beautiful lighting of a greenhouse, and dream of someday having our own. Hudson thinks cacti are funny, and here’s some of my favorite shots from the day! SHOP THE…

Oslo, Norway Guide

We spent the most amount of time on our trip in Oslo, Norway! We had planned to do the Norway in a Nutshell journey via train rides to see the fjords, but after a very very bad train experience with Hudson from Sweden to Norway we decided to just spend the rest of our trip in Oslo. It’s a big enough city to preoccupy anyone…

What We’ve Learned From Traveling Internationally (Twice!) With Hudson @ 8 Months Old

Phew, so some of you may have read this post a few months back about our tips for traveling with a baby.

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

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…
