If you’re a fashion-loving Newfoundlander & Labradorian, then you’re no doubt already familiar with (slash fangirling/fanboying over) Megan Warren and her blog/Insta Don’t Forget to Sparkle. We LOOOOVE Megan and her knack for combining classic pieces with feminine touches to look 100% on-trend, classy, and modern. She launched Ethereal Boutique online a few months ago, and we’re already in love with that, too. We recently collaborated for … Continue reading Ethereal Boutique + New York City
Here’s what we recommend when you love travel but can’t quite afford the long-haul international flight and four weeks of accommodations: Take a local road trip. It’s been much too long since we’ve ventured outside North America, but such is life when unpredicted expenses pop up one after the other. To feed our restless wandering souls, we took a few days off recently to drive … Continue reading Trinity Baycation
Follow my blog with Bloglovin There’s something about a good music festival that just sucks us right in. It could be the sunshine. Or the lemonade. Or the dancing. It could be the feeling of watching a handful of bands you love in the same day. Or maybe it’s the fact you’re surrounded by thousands of really happy people listening to really good music. You … Continue reading Festival Fashions
We booked this current trip to Montreal a couple months ago. When we realized Boston would be a five-hour drive away, we decided to rent a car for a couple days and spent a night in the States. We only booked a single night in Boston. Yeah, don’t do what we did. And, for the sake of saving a couple hundred dollars, we booked a hotel … Continue reading Maybe Downtown is Best.
Our three days in Dubrovnik deserve their own post, but so do our roomies for those three nights. Because we hit the roommate jackpot, haha. Typically, if we stay in a shared hostel room, we’ll choose the all-female dorms. This is especially true if the hostel has a name for being party central. Nothing at all against guys–we usually get along better with them anyways–but … Continue reading When You Hit the Roomie Jackpot.
After 46 hours of travel (28 of those hours spent in the air), we landed in St. John’s last night. This morning, it took me ten seconds to realize where I was. Another five seconds to figure out why I let myself sleep until noon. The backpack(s) have been unpacked and are taking a well-deserved break in my closet. My clothes are in the laundry … Continue reading Warning: The Travel Bug may have Side Effects.
We felt bad for Adelaide. We had just come from Sydney–and that’s a tough act to follow, haha. We had three days in Adelaide, so we wanted to make the most of them. I think we did pretty good. This will be my rant about the heat, haha. It reached 38° every day we were there. Being from Newfoundland, we’re used to the wind making … Continue reading Escaping the Adelaide Heat.
This is by no means a complaint–I absolutely LOVE traveling with just a single backpack. (Remind me to write a post on how problematic a suitcase would have been getting to our accommodations in Cinque Terre). My biggest struggle when packing my backpack revolves around footwear. You basically only get to bring a single pair of shoes. That’s it. ONE pair. I usually have room … Continue reading Backpacking & Footwear Problems.
Navigating the roads around the island of Mykonos is an adventure in itself. The roads are super narrow to start with. Then add huge buses going in both directions, some blind hills, locals, and tourists on rented atvs and scooters who have no idea where they’re going. No wonder the guy giving us a ride from the airport warned us not to rent an atv. … Continue reading Europe 2014: The Roads of Mykonos
Because of the way our flight schedule worked out, we only had 2 days to explore beautiful Barcelona. Which is fine, until you realize how spread out the city is. The main attractions we wanted to check out were in opposite corners pretty much. And, being the stubborn cheap-os that we are, we refused to take the metro. Our poor feet must hate us sometimes. … Continue reading Europe 2014: Antoni Gaudi Was A Busy Man
