Getaway House + Pittsburgh

img_0115

Happy Wednesday! I am so excited to share my collaboration with Getaway House! This past weekend, my boyfriend and I went to Lisbon, Ohio to stay one night in one of their tiny cabins.  We truly had the best time ever! If you’re not familiar with Getaway House, they just recently opened up a Pittsburgh/Cleveland location that have over twenty little cabins nestled away in the woods under a bunch of pine trees. I was absolutely shocked when we pulled up because the landscape itself was absolutely gorgeous!

One thing that I love about this concept is although it is similar to a campground, you still had your privacy. I also really liked how you didn’t have to stop and get keys, they just text you your code and cabin name a few hours before check in. It really made everything hassle free! Since check in was at 3pm we pulled up around 4pm that way we still had daylight left to get everything organized. It took us about an hour and a half to get there from Pittsburgh so it wasn’t bad at all. Just as an FYI, these cabins obviously do not have a TV which allows you to really relax without any “outside noise”. They also have a cell phone lock box that you can put your phone in for the time being.

It is a “tiny cabin” but it had a lot more space than I had ever thought. I was shocked on how big the kitchen and shower were. I was a little worried that my boyfriend and I wouldn’t have that much space but we really had no issues at all. One major thing that I loved was how clean everything was. For it being “in the woods” you definitely couldn’t tell by the inside. After we took some photos we got ready for dinner and headed to this really cool place in town called The Courthouse Inn & Restaurant. It was about ten minutes from the Getaway outpost so it was very convenient. They had a tremendous menu and I highly suggest stopping here. Your jaw will definitely drop when you walk into their bathrooms lol!

A few other places we also found were Pondi’s Restaurant & Bar and Shale Tavern & Grill. Both were only a few minutes away from the outpost. The little town that the restaurant we went to was in reminded me so much of Savannah, Georgia. In the spring/fall I am sure it is really gorgeous so walking around there would be something to do as well. If I am not mistaking, it looked like they were adding in more shops and even a coffee spot so that would be exciting!

After dinner we came back to the cabin and put on some comfy clothes. We unfortunately didn’t have a fire because we were freezing but we ended up streaming the Pittsburgh Penguins game on my boyfriends laptop so it was nice to get all cozy and watch that together.  Some people have problems falling asleep without a TV being on and my boyfriend is one of them, so he downloaded two Netflix movies. Since I didn’t feel like reading my book that I brought, we fell asleep to the Grinch, which I wasn’t mad about it haha. I ended up waking up around 4am because there was a torrential downpour outside and it was so LOUD. Although I ended up falling back asleep, we both woke up around 7am and decided to head home. All in all we had the best time and both can’t wait to go back with family and friends! I highly suggest renting out one of these cabins whether it be for a romantic getaway or a friends trip, you’ll have a blast!

Roland’s Seafood Grill + Pittsburgh

This past Saturday, my boyfriend and I went to Lumaze in downtown Pittsburgh. After hanging out there for a few hours, we finally went to Roland’s Seafood Grill. I have been wanting to go here for so long now and since we were super close we decided to go. I ordered the stuffed mushrooms and my boyfriend ordered their famous lobster roll. My mushrooms were pretty good, I just am not that big of a fan of red peppers and the crab meat had a lot of it in it. I had a few bites of his lobster roll though and it was SO good. I highly suggest stopping by if you’re ever in the area. Here is their Lunch Menu and their Dinner Menu.

Bacon, Bourbon & Beer + Pittsburgh

This past Saturday, my boyfriend and I finally went here for dinner. I have wanted to try this spot out for months and it definitely did not disappoint. To start off, I loved the aesthetic as it had somewhat of a rustic and modern type feel. To drink, I tried a few of their ciders but ended up going with an arsenal cider. For dinner, I ordered their BLT which absolutely amazing. The bacon was more on the sweet side so it really made the sandwich as a whole taste good. The fries were also very tasty and not at all greasy. My boyfriend ordered one of their burgers in which he also had only good things to say. For dessert we ordered their apple/ice cream option and it was so so good! All in all, I highly recommend this restaurant if you’re ever in the area!

The Loveliest Blogger Bash 2019

img_5883

Last Sunday, I stepped completely out of my comfort zone and attended one of my first Blogger Bash events. I had no idea what to expect, and with getting my IUD just a day prior, I wasn’t sure if I was even going to be able to make it. But I did, and couldn’t be happier for doing so. I started blogging purely to share my love for fashion and to help others save some coin! But before WLFJ became what it is now, I started blogging on Tumblr. I was a junior in high school and just had my first surgery on my stomach. Since I was off of school for a few days, I was bored and decided to find a new hobby. I wasn’t consistent but every once in a while I would go on and share some fashion related posts. Come senior year, I had a another major surgery which in turn had me in the hospital for two weeks, and because of how invasive it was, I had to leave high school and get home schooled. I had teachers come to my house three days a week for a few hours but other than that, I was so bored. I was in a lot of pain for months and wasn’t able to do much, so that is when I dived in full force and started being consistent on Tumblr. For me it was just something to do and I would of never guessed that the blogging world would ever be what it is now. In 2017, I began With Love From Jordyn and if you would of told me that I would of been invited to a Blogger Bash, with over 20+ girls, that I have never met, and that I actually attended it, I wouldn’t of believed you.

This event was beyond perfect. I met so many amazing women that were all so inspiring. The event was held at The Loveliest Coffee & Clothes and Glow Blotique. Both which were absolutely gorgeous shops. We all had our hair done at Glow Blotique and all of the photo ops were at The Loveliest Co. It truly is the most instagramable shop that I have ever seen. Florals were by @stemsfloral.

They had all of the things from cookies, cupcakes, charcuterie boards, champagne, coffee, and tea. The food was by Mediterra, Becka Bakes, and Tasty Baker.

After mingling for a while, we all picked out some pieces from The Loveliest and took photos outside with photographer Caitlin Thomas who is @caitlintphoto on insta! This part was SUPER out of my comfort zone because of course, all of my insecurities started running through my head. It’s one thing taking your own photos but it’s another having a professional take them. Caitlin worked her magic though, and I am actually obsessed with how the pictures turned out.

img_5874img_5876img_5877img_5882img_5875img_5880img_5878img_5881

After taking all of the photos, we had an Instagram Tips & Tricks Panel with Katie from @loveyoursocialmedia, Cristin from @gossboss_photovideo, and Brea from @thethinkingbranch. All of three of these women were so inspiring and I truly learned so much. It was nice to see women supporting women.

Lastly, I was so happy to meet Victoria from @ohjoyfulday who made this watercolor portrait. I have wanted this done for years now for a few things that I have up my sleeve so stay tuned!

No 14 Boutique in Lawrenceville

No12 1

Hi Babes! Today, I am sharing with y’all one of my favorite boutiques located in Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania. If you are ever in the area, you have to stop in! From clothing to accessories to cute little notepads, they’ve got it all and then some.

img_1356

When you first walk through the door, it is a little overwhelming because everything is so gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing. I personally feel like No 14 focuses on your everyday girl boss. If you love all things sparkly and pink, you will not walk out empty handed. That being said, I am more of  a neutrals kinda girl and yet I always walk out with multiple bags. They honestly have so many pieces, no matter your style, you’ll find something you love.

img_1351

This dress was the first one I tried on. Can we talk about how cute their dressing rooms are! I will try to find links for everything posted. Since it is a boutique they will sell out. Don’t live in the area? You can order online or by phone.

img_1355

I fell in love with this dress and totally regret not buying it.

img_1354

I really, really, really wanted this dress but because I have a short torso, it didn’t fit me right. They had it in multiple colors so you have different options for different types of events.

I purchased an outfit for a wedding that I am going to this month as well as a sweater and pearl headband. I will be having two separate blog posts regarding these pieces so check back soon!

Address: 4601 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201

Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 11AM-6PM // Sunday 12-4PM

Apericena Wine Bar in Pittsburgh

 This past weekend, my boyfriend and I went to a cute little wine bar in the South Hills. It was so much fun trying different types of wine and eating our super yummy charcuterie board! We ended up hanging there for a few hours and I loved every second of it. Totally my vibe lol! I highly suggest giving this place a visit if you’re in the South Hills. They had many different types of wines to choose from as well as different types of charcuterie boards and flat breads. The workers are also very helpful and knowledgeable. They are located at:

100 Siena Suite 135, Upper St Clair, PA 15241

Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh

img_1314

This past Friday my boyfriend, a few friends, and I went to the Carnegie Science Center for a Stranger Things event that they were hosting. It has been years and years since I have been here so it was nice to check everything out again. Although the event had pretty much nothing to do with Stranger Things we all had fun reminiscing.

img_1304img_1312img_1296img_1299img_1320_facetune_13-09-2019-22-04-32img_1313img_1318_facetune_13-09-2019-22-03-12img_1297img_1301img_1300img_1302img_1303

If you’re looking for something to do in Pittsburgh, I definitely would give the Science Center a visit, especially if you have little ones. As for parking, they have a parking lot right near the entrance which makes it a lot more convenient. I do believe you have to pay to park unless if that was just for the event. Inside, they have plenty of restrooms as well as a little gift shop. Check out their website here.
