Barcelona, Spain


And at last we reach the end of this life changing trip! Today we talk about my final stop of the Iberian peninsula: Barcelona!

I loved the whole trip, but I would say that Barcelona was my favorite. I don’t know if it’s because by then I was already more comfortable with the European way of things but it just felt like home. The vibes that I got there reminded me of Austin, TX (which is my favorite city in the US) and I just felt that if I were to ever move to Spain, Barcelona is where I’d go. So why did I love it so much? Let me tell you! Read More

Sitges, Spain


As we continue to work our way to shorter days and cool fall weather, let’s go back to some more sunny days in Spain. But before we travel to the last city of my trip (and my favorite), let’s take a quick stop in the little beach town of Sitges!

Sitges sits about an hour train ride from Barcelona and is a little beach gem. Yes Barcelona has beaches, but they get way too crowded and frankly I’m now a big fan of crowds. We ended up at Sitges because our wonderful tour guide offered us an extra excursion: paddle boarding! I had only done paddle boarding a time or two in Austin and I was definitely not gonna miss a chance to do it in Spain! Plus it meant a day at the beach and a new town to explore! A total win!

Madrid, Spain


Ah, Spain!

Anytime anyone asked where I was going for my trip, I said Spain. I didn’t mean to leave Portugal out, and I was excited about going there, but everyone is more familiar with Spain and it just seemed easier. Also, everyone I had talked to that said they had been to Europe, said that Spain was their favorite. I found out immediately why that is and I couldn’t agree more!

Let’s begin with Spain’s capital and the heart of the Iberian peninsula: Madrid! Read More

Wearing White After Labor Day


What’s that rule about no white after Labor Day? It’s after Labor Day right? And how long after Labor Day? Why Labor Day and why the color white? Where did this fashion rule even come from? I had to get some answers! Read More

Summer Florals



Is everyone as excited for fall as I am?!? Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks, pumpkin patches and corn mazes are popping up everywhere and all our favorite stores are coming out with the cutest sweaters, booties, and layering pieces! I love fall, it’s my favorite season!

HOWEVER! It is still summer and I am just not ready to let go of summer florals! The calendar says I have until September 23rd! So y’all are just gonna have to bare with me for a couple more weeks! I’ll start transitioning when it starts cooling down, which is like never in Texas! (Ok, maybe like mid to end of October) Read More
