Vinales, Cuba

I’m an avid user of Airbnb. I’ve stayed in Airbnbs big and small all over the world (or at least in North America and Scotland…) and I’ve found that they provide so many luxuries that you can’t find at a hotel or hostel! It bums me out that so many people are too nervous to try out Airbnb because I feel like you’re missing out on so many cool opportunities! That being said, I totally understand being apprehensive about it. I started out renting an Airbnb (entire apartment) with a friend, then alone, then staying in a single rented room with a friend… and I’m still apprehensive about staying in a single rented room alone! But these are the reasons I would 110% consider trying it out, if you haven’t already:…

19 Things To Do In 2019

Processed with VSCO with 6 preset
It wouldn’t be a new year without a good old bucket list! I’m very nosey so I loooove reading people’s bucket lists, but this year I thought I would adapt mine to be less all about me so that it’s a bit more accessible to readers. So here are 19 things that I really want to do in 2019, that maybe you will also like to try this year!…

2018: A Year In Review

2018 was a big one for me. I graduated, I moved out of my family home, I travelled a ton, I started new jobs, and I met a bunch of new people. I can look back at myself a year ago and see someone who had no idea what the future held, who was unsure of what she wanted to do, and even more unsure of how to achieve the things she knew she wanted. Today I am far less afraid of the unknown, I embrace it and look forward to it and just hope to be lucky enough to get to experience more of it. This year has changed everything about me, from the hair on my head the very essence of my outlook on life. Here’s what happened, maybe after reading you’ll be able to understand why I’ve become such a different person in such a short period of time.

My Go-To Travel Outfit | Hiking in Ireland

Function Over Fashion: A minimalist approach to styling while travelling
I am NOT someone who overpacks when they travel. Now that I’m living in the U.K. I’m traveling on budget airlines (bc ya girl’s on a budget), which charge you even for a hand luggage carry on. On my latest adventure to the West coast of Ireland to do some hiking, I packed everything into my small and beloved Lululemon backpack, which fits perfectly under the seat of the airplane. Mind you, the trip was four nights, five days, and included city days in Galway and Dublin, and two days in the countryside hiking and biking, so I needed a LOT of variety when it came to my clothes… or so you would think. I managed to find basically one outfit that worked under all circumstances, admittedly I did not look fantastic and chic in the cities, but it was good enough!

Cuba Travels | The Best of Viñales

Hola amigas! As promised, here is my second Cuba vlog AND! It’s edited in VSCO! Colour grading on my amateur youtube channel?! What?! I love it. What do you think? Did I go overboard? Do you like it better? I don’t know!!! Either way, come along for a little day of adventuring around Viñales and see everything the beautiful valley has to offer! I’m honestly SO happy we decided to travel here to stay for a few days rather than doing a day trip. It’s easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been in my entire life. I can’t believe how skeptical I was now, I thought it would be quite off the beaten track and hard to navigate but it was SO travel-friendly. I can’t say enough good things about it, so just watch the video and see for yourself!

 

If you’re interested in travelling off the beaten path in Cuba, here’s an article I wrote called ‘Beyond the Beaches: A guide to exploring off-resort Cuba‘.

March in Instagram! ✴

I’m sure you know the drill by now but in case you don’t – each month I share a little ‘behind the scenes’ of my Instagram. This year all my Instagram captions are lyrics to a song that relates/has the right vibe to go with the picture. You know when you feel a connection between music and a memory or a place or a feeling? I thought I would stick to lyrics so I could ~maybe~ better communicate the feeling of the picture.
Are you guys even READY for all of the Cuba pics? I have ONE more to post tomorrow and then my theme is officially moving on. I’m already sad about it.

A Makeup Guide to Travelling

Makeup is one of the hardest things to pack for when you’re traveling. You have to limit yourself to smaller products (if you’re not checking a bag – I never do), and you never want to overpack. Personally, when it comes to makeup and skincare I’d always rather overpack than under pack, but I hate unnecessarily bringing things that I don’t use, it’s just wasted space in my bag! Without further ado, these are the must-haves for a versatile travel-sized makeup bag.
