Travel Diary: Tulum, Mexico

**Disclaimer – This is kind of a long post. I hope you’ll read it all because I’ve tried to make it as informative as possible.**

After so much contemplation, here it is – my first ever travel post! It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, and I’m so excited to finally share this with you – I’d love to hear your feedback! I wanna start off with one of my absolute favorite quotes – “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” – Miriam Adeney

I’ve been putting off writing this post because I still can’t find the words to describe just how incredible Tulum, Mexico is. Also, because I’ve had a few other things going on – traveling + I’m moving apartments in less than 2 weeks. But I decided to finally sit down and work on this post. I think if I had to pick one word to describe Tulum, and my trip, I’d say it was …. View Post

Moving to San Antonio – 6 things I wish I’d known

Happy Tuesday, loves! As I mentioned in my last post, I moved to San Antonio, TX last year. Well, today actually marks the one-year anniversary of my move, and this post, about moving to San Antonio, is one I’ve been working on for a while! Before we get into it, I just wanna say that there’s still a lot I am yet to explore about SA. This post is based on my experiences so far, and also a bit of research, i.e., talking to quite a few people who are from here or have moved here. I don’t intend to offend anyone with this post, and I certainly don’t want this to sound like a personal rant. So, I thought it’s only fair to actually talk to other people about their experiences before writing this post. I want this to be informational, and hopefully, something that’ll be of help to anyone moving to San Antonio, TX.

San Antonio, TX is the 4th fastest growing city in the US (waaahhhhh!) and also the 7th biggest city in the US. Who’da thunk, huh!  View Post

Personal Burnout Hiatus

Hey y’all! Happy hump day – we’re halfway through the week, and we’re coming up on a long weekend. Exciting times, huh? So, I haven’t blogged in over five months and I kind of just went MIA. I think after this much-needed break, I’m finally ready to come back to blogging but first, I want to talk about why I went on this hiatus to begin with. Bear with me because this is a pretty long, and a very candid post – about not only the reality of a blogger burnout, but everything that’s been happening in my personal life. I didn’t think I was ready to write about all of this, but I think I am. So, even I’m surprised at how candid this is. View Post

Happy Monday, loves! Can y’all believe it’s 11 days till Christmas? I don’t have a fancy holiday party to go to, but if I did, this leather & feathers look would probably be my go-to holiday party outfit. I know it’s usually all about LBDs and sparkly dresses, and as much as I love all those options, it’s fun to stand out every now and then, no? This faux leather pants & feather trim tank combo is my version of an LBD for the holidays! I am absolutely loving this feather trim tank that’s over 40% off right now, and just $40! It also comes in skirt & dress versions, and they’re all on sale!
