the fact that i get to travel as a part of my job will forever be surreal to me. i get the opportunities to experience incredible sights and places because of my blogging and photography that i otherwise would not have seen - and many times, i have my best friends right by my side. but more often than not, followers just see the final photo that many times takes hours and hours of preparation and post production giving the illusion that traveling as a blogger is glamorous. and don’t get me wrong, i would not be doing this if i didn’t love it 110% but i think people often forget that this is a job and when i’m traveling, i am working. i will say i too sometimes will scroll through instagram and come across the perfect photo with the best lighting, location, and corresponding outfit that sometimes i assume it was all by coincidence. granted sometimes that does happen, but more often than not, photos and posts have so much more care and attention involved in them that the final image will never be able to show. with that in mind, i wanted to go a little more in-depth and share what went into this shoot and the crazy packed day that followed.Read More

when i was packing for my trip to rome, i knew i needed to bring some crazy comfortable pieces that i could walk around all day in...and eat copious amounts of pasta. i immediately grabbed this gal meets glam collection dress without hesitation. while i purchased it back when the gmg collection launched (as in right at 9am est on the first day haha!) and wore this dress countless times, i never actually photographed it! so i figured rome would be the perfect time for this dress to make it's debut on the blog. but for real, this dress feels like you're wearing pajamas and it's the greatest thing ever! i even convinced jenn that she needed it in her life too...it's that good!Read More
spring is here! so bring on all of the flowy dresses and handbags filled with flowers! this is truly one of my favorite times of the year because the flowers and trees are starting to come back to life and the unbearable heat hasn't quite hit yet. when julia engel released her stunning line of dresses, i knew i was going to be obsessed from the start! from her first month's collection, i purchased six dresses...yes six! while my intention was to overbuy to scope out the collection and then later return, i ended up keeping almost all of them. but out of all the dresses, this one had to have been my favorite. aside from the color, the fabric felt the highest quality of the ones i ordered and i just felt like maria von trapp in it! so overall it was a win! i cannot wait to see what she keeps putting out every month!Read More
