My Christmas Wishlist

Thursday, November 21, 2019


Gift guides are one of my favorite blog posts to read. I love getting ideas for what to purchase and/or gift to people. Today (in the midst of finishing some final projects for school), I am sharing what is currently on my wishlist. I have a good mix on here of beauty, fashion, and apartment ideas. If you have any gift guides in particular you'd like to see, feel free to send me a message! I am currently getting my Gift Guide for Him finished.



Where to Spend an Evening in Savannah

Wednesday, October 30, 2019


One of the most common questions I get are recommendations for places to visit in Savannah, whether that be for food, good Instagram spots, or shopping. I have a general guide for the places I like in Savannah seen here, however I wanted to dedicate a whole post to the places I recommend for the evening! If you guys love my Savannah and travel posts, I will start sharing more of them as a series.

1) Peregrin Savannah:
Such a beautiful rooftop bar! It is easily my favorite on this list. This is where I took the photo seen above. I had a frozen rosé there and loved it! Plus, the decor is on point 😋(Instagram)

2) The Grove:
The Grove is absolutely adorable in downtown Savannah. This is where a lot of my friends recommend for a night out! The food is amazing and one of the benefits of this place is that it is located right next to City Market, so before or after dinner and drinks you can walk around all the little shops and see lots of local art. (Instagram)

3) Lost Square Rooftop Bar:
I was fortunate enough to get a private tour of the Alida Hotel and of their new rooftop bar The Lost Square. The WHOLE hotel is ridiculously beautiful and right on the Savannah River. You get an impeccable view of the bridge from here as well as a view of River Street.
P.S. At the hotel gift-shop, they have an exclusive candle that is supposed to smell like Savannah. I have it in my bedroom currently and love it. (Instagram)

4) Rocks on the Roof:
I have been here with my family before and LOVE it! Rocks on the Roof is located on top of the Bohemian Hotel (which I highly recommend staying at) right on River Street. The location could not be more ideal and the view is amazing. (Instagram)

5) Little Duck Diner:
If you are not into bars, this is another great option. They have the cutest duckies in their drinks + milkshakes and the food is top notch! For those looking for a good food/drink 'Insta' picture, this is the place for you. (Instagram)

6) Lulu's Chocolate Bar:
If you are like me and have a major sweet tooth, then I cannot recommend this place enough. My favorite dessert is their chocolate moose and last time I went, they made me a not on the menu virgin chocolate martini drink. (website)

7) Top Deck:
Recommended to me by several friends and also located on River Street. They have an amazing view of the river and I been have told their drinks are impeccable. (Instagram)

8) Sorry Charlie's Oyster Bar:
Oysters are at the top of my favorite foods list, which makes Sorry Charlie's perfect. They serve fresh and local seafood and is the perfect place to have dinner for a night in Savannah. It is also located on Ellis square, which I highly recommend visiting the squares around Savannah. (website)

My Fall Wishlist

Thursday, October 3, 2019

SunglassesNeedlepoint ShoesHatFlats

  Happy Fall y'all! Here is a little peek into my shopping list this fall (i.e. I already have a couple things on here 😅). I am loving the needlepoint trend this Fall and adore these shoes! My boyfriend and I try really hard to go phone-free as much as possible and Fall is such a great time to do this. An example of this is the other night my roommates brought home a puzzle that we have all been working on: my current favorite one is here. Aannndd last, but not least, you cannot forget about skincare as the months get colder. I tend to get really chapped lips and have found Lanolips to have great products that help. Plus, how great is this pumpkin face mask??


My Excursion to 30a

Tuesday, September 24, 2019


Recently, I took a long weekend over to the Gulf Coast and traveled around highway 30a. It was so beautiful! I had pictured the water looking similar to the keys, however it was easy to see why it is called the Emerald Coast! It was pretty different, a beautiful deep, clear green color. I had so much fun riding around the coast and trying a ton of the restaurants there. My favorite (sort of pictured above) was a food truck in an old Airstream camper that had brisket nachos. Have any of you ever traveled here??
