SAVANNAH GEORGIA TRIP RECAP + TRAVEL GUIDE

img_5339

If  you know me at all, you know how I am in love with Savannah. I have only been there three times but nonetheless it is by far my favorite place to travel to. Since the last time that I went in 2016, I have been non stop asking my mom to come with me again for a little girls trip. After finding cheap plane tickets, we finally made it down. Our flight was around 8pm so since I worked all day my mom just picked me up on the way to the airport around 5pm. Unfortunately, there was a lot of storms down south so our flight ended up getting delayed a little bit until around 8:40pm. We flew direct so it was a super easy and convenient flight only being about an hour and a half. We landed in Savannah around 10pm but by the time we got our luggage and rental car it was easily about 11pm. Oddly enough, our rental car ended up being a Jeep Wrangler where if you have been a follower for a while you know that I used to have one. I got rid of it about two years ago because it was ridiculously expensive with gas. But I always miss having it lol! So it was cool to at least have one for the weekend. Since we knew we were going to get in late, we booked a hotel near the airport so it was less stressful and just overall more convenient. We were starving but most places were closed so we grabbed some Wendy’s, checked in, showered and then went right to bed!

Friday morning, my mom and I woke up, got ready and went to go visit Worsmloe Historic Site. It was about a half of an hour away from our hotel so it wasn’t far at all. While on our way we stopped at Starbucks and I tried the new pineapple matcha drink…it was so so good!! Wormsloe was absolutely breathtaking. I can’t wait to go back! It would be the perfect spot to have a picnic or even take wedding pictures. I was kind of bummed though because we had to pay about $23 just to drive through it. So if you ever plan on visiting, plan to stay for a few hours so you can make it worth while.

After we took pictures and looked around we then went to Marabelle Cafe to grab a late breakfast. I went here last time and it once again did not disappoint. They have the absolute best authentic liège waffles! It is also super aesthetically pleasing and right across the street from the cathedral of St John the Baptist so you could stop there after like we did. I made sure to take a lot pictures because it was all so gorgeous. The weather even was nice unlike the days prior so it was nice to sit outside. The view did not disappoint.

After eating and taking more pictures, I went shopping on Broughton street. Since parking was horrible, I ended up having my mom drop me off and I just ran to a few stores. If you plan on going here, definitely plan on spending a lot of money because it is so easy to do. It is basically a street with a bunch of popular stores from Victoria’s Secret to Urban Outfitters. I stopped at Chocolat by Adam Turoni, Fabrik, The Impeccable Pig, Spartina 449 and after my mom finally found a space we stopped at The Paris Market.

After shopping was complete, we finally went to go check into our hotel. We stayed at The Hampton Inn off of E Bay St. It was the prefect location in my opinion because it was right across the street from River Street. One thing that kind of sucked was that you have to pay over night to keep your car at the hotel as well as valet so if you can get away without renting a car I highly suggest it. They have peddle taxis that you can get to take you from place to place if it would be too far of a walk. After checking into our room, we unpacked and relaxed until dinner. We ordered some appetizers from SavtakOut.com. It is basically like another version of Postmates. Super easy to use and convenient. I made reservations at the Old Pink House for 5pm so I got ready around 3:30. The restaurant was only a two minute walk from our hotel so it was also really convenient. I was super impressed with the food. Everything was so incredibly good and the atmosphere was awesome. It was an old mansion turned into a bank turned into a restaurant. It was old school and I loved every second of it. To start things off, I had two glasses of their riesling because it was AMAZING and then some of their fresh bread and biscuits that our waiter brought out. All of their workers were extremely nice. As for my actual meal, I went with their crab cake with a side of asparagus and a house salad. Again, everything was so good. After dinner we walked back to our hotel. One thing I love about Savannah is how it is so big yet so small. A lot of places are in walking distance so it just makes everything so much easier.

After we finished up at dinner, we went to City Market. City Market is the best at night because it has really good night life. While we were walking around we saw so many bridal parties. I came to the realization that this is definitely where mine will be lol! We stopped at the candy store and a few other touristy shops to look around then went back to the hotel because we were both pretty exhausted.

On Saturday morning, my mom and I went to grab breakfast at Savannah Coffee Roasters which was such a cool spot! Most of the places that we went on this trip I either knew of from the last time that we visited or I did some research on the gram. Since coffee sometimes bothers my stomach, I ordered a hot tea, iced tea and their fresh fruit with greek yogurt and granola. The fruit was so dang good and was super fresh! The granola was a little hard but it was good nonetheless.

After eating breakfast, we went to visit Forsyth Park. I didn’t have a chance to go here last time we visited so I was really excited to see the fountain. It happened to work out because since we were here the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day, they made the fountain green. St. Patrick’s Day weekend is one of the biggest weekends in Savannah if you didn’t know! It was a little cold out so we didn’t stay very long but it would be so gorgeous to visit here in the summer and have a picnic or just walk around. I was surprised how big it all was. They also have a farmer’s market on the weekend so you could turn it into a fun afternoon!

After taking some pictures, we headed to Red Clover Boutique. I discovered them last time I visited and was literally obsessed. It is easily one of my favorite boutiques because not only is their stuff cute and stylish but also budget friendly which is hard to find with boutiques these days! It was also convenient compared to other stores because there is a parking lot close by. I ended up buying the most things here so keep a lookout on my Instagram to see my outfits!

After shopping, we went back to our hotel to freshen up and then went over to River Street. Since my mom has trouble walking with her MS we drove to The Bohemian Hotel and did valet. It ended up being super convenient because parking was absolutely filled. Our hotel was extremely close to River Street though so if you could walk fine it is a very easy walk. After we did valet, we walked down to the river and then went to Rocks on the Roof for lunch. They have a limited menu so if you’re on the more hungry side, I suggest going to Rocks on the River instead which is in the same hotel just on the bottom floor.

After eating and taking in the view, we went back to the hotel to relax until our Old Savannah Ghost Tour. If you didn’t know I secretly am a history nerd so I love going on ghost tours in Savannah. We did one last time we visited and it was amazing! The one we did last time was a horse and carriage ride where as this one was a trolley. It was about two hours long and they drove you around to a bunch of spots around town. Since it was somewhat cold out, we had the sides down but it would be gorgeous on a summer night with them open! For the most part, we stayed on the trolley which was convenient for my mom. At some stops they had characters come on who had something to do with that spot such as the home owner or someone who passed close by so it made it pretty cool because you got to learn about the persons life. The only stop that we got off at was the last one which was the Telfair Museum

A quick little background about the Telfair Museum….It was the first art museum in the southern United States. It opened in 1886 in the Telfair family’s renovated Regency style mansion known as Telfair Academy.  And yes, it is said to be haunted.

Our hotel was in such a good location and everyone was so incredibly nice. When I come back to Savannah, I will be booking again. They have a pool on the rooftop and this incredible view!

As bad as I wanted to stay, we unfortunately had to head home Sunday morning. We woke up around 8:30 and headed to the airport. On our way, we stopped to fill the Jeep up which only ended up being like $12 since we didn’t drive very much. One thing about Savannah is it feels so big but it is honestly pretty small. All in all, this was one of the best mini vacations that I have ever been on and I can not wait to go back. Savannah is by far my favorite place on earth. I absolutely love it.

SAVANNAH GEORGIA PACK WITH ME + LONG WEEKEND TRIP

I am always so OCD when it comes to packing because I always feel like I am going to forget something and I just like to be organized overall. I typically make a list and check it twice. For this trip, I am flying out tomorrow night and not coming home until Sunday afternoon. I made sure to pack extra outfits since the weather will be between 60-70 degrees. I also packed extra pieces because I plan on taking pictures for my blog down there so you can definitely say I overpacked a little lol!

CROSSBODY/PURSE

img_5163
img_5164
img_5165

For my crossbody purse, I typically carry this stuff with me daily so not much changes with my purse. I have my wallet, lipgloss, chapstick, roller perfume, lipstick, lip liner, pills, a pen, lotion, essential oil inhalers, my usb and some gum. Again, these are just my daily essentials.

CARRY ON

img_5161

This is one of my dupe purchases from Amazon that I shared a few weeks back on Instagram. I absolutely love it and I am super impressed with the overall quality. It is on the smaller side but does open up and carry a lot making it the perfect carry on bag. I will link it here.

img_5162

Since it is roughly just an hour flight, I am only packing the essentials. I am bringing my mini iPad, my kindle and my lululemon bag has my beats and all of my chargers.

img_5166
img_5167

I am checking a bag so because of that I put all of my jewelry that I plan on taking in this mini jewelry case just because I am a psycho and am afraid that it would get stolen if I checked it lol. I am bringing both of these glasses because the outfits I brought are either boho or edgy. The lemon kleenex are from the Target dollar spot and are perfect for on the go. With the coronavirus happening I also packed wet ones and hand sanitizer. Lastly, I am bringing my notebook and travel journal. I like to have my notebook for outlining books that I am currently reading and also to jot down anything that comes to mind. I am a notebook hoarder….Its okay, I’m okay.

img_5168
img_5169

I am always afraid of my luggage getting lost so I like to carry the important stuff with me on board. That means all of my skincare and makeup. My makeup isn’t pictured but most of my skincare/toiletries are! These are all my favs!

DEEP CREEK, MARYLAND TRIP RECAP + TRAVEL GUIDE

Ever since I was a little kid, my family would all rent out a cabin for a week in the summer and it was always so much fun. Honestly, it is one of my favorite childhood memories. After things got expensive we all stopped going but recently we have been renting out a cabin for the weekend in one of the winter months. Last weekend, I went with my boyfriend and a few of my family members and it was so relaxing and nice spending time together.

Everyone headed down earlier in the day but since I worked until five, my boyfriend and I headed down in the evening. It was only like an hour and a half away, but the fog and rain were so bad, it was a nightmare driving down haha. We got there around seven, changed, and then went to dinner at the Dutch’s at Silver Tree with my parents. This place is a MUST if you are ever in the area. Their food is so dang good! My dad and boyfriend ordered their buffet, my mom ordered their crab cakes and I ordered their stuffed mushrooms.

After dinner, we headed back to the cabin to shower and put on some comfy clothes. I then checked out our cabin which was HUGE! It basically had four levels one being like a loft which had two bedrooms, that is where my boyfriend and I slept as well as my cousin and his family. The middle floor had the kitchen, dining area, living room, and two bedrooms. The lower level had two bedrooms and a game room, and then the basement had a small room and the pool/hot tub area.

In the morning, my boyfriend and I went to Trader’s Coffee House to grab a coffee and some breakfast. I was never there before but I ordered a latte with oat milk and my boyfriend ordered their salted caramel frappe which we both loved. For food, I ordered their belgian waffle and he ordered one of their breakfasts wraps. My waffle was the best waffle that I had ever had so I definitely recommend stopping here!

After eating, we hung out and then got ready to go on the mountain coaster at The Wisp. It ended up really snowing so I was absolutely frozen but it was still really fun!

All-Seasons Spritzer(11)When we got back, my mom, boyfriend and I went to Uno Pizzeria & Grill for a late lunch. I highly recommend ordering one of their flat breads because they are so good! My boyfriend ordered their steak and cheese spring rolls which were really good to.

All-Seasons Spritzer(12)

After eating, we headed back to the cabin and took a short nap. My boyfriend and I woke up and I had him do my makeup. It was absolutely hilarious. You can watch the video and see his final masterpiece on my deep creek Instagram highlight. Later that night we all just played card games together and then went to bed. It was a fairly short trip, but spending time with my family is always my favorite.

This was my first time visiting Marco Island and I was completely taken away. Every single house on the Island was breathtaking and our rental house was my absolute favorite place thus far. As for the island itself, everything is very clean and the people are extremely nice. The only issue we had was with the beach access. There is not many options when it comes to getting onto the beach and with a mother with multiple sclerosis and a grandmother it was a quite the process. We ended up flying into Charlotte and then from Charlotte to Fort Meyers. On the way home we thankfully had a direct flight. Once we touched down in Fort Myers we rented a car and drove to Marco. It was roughly 45 minutes so not bad at all. We got in around 6:30pm Saturday night. Like I said, the house we rented was absolutely breathtaking. Very clean and just beautiful. Our backyard was on one of the waterway canals so it was great for fishing. By the time we unloaded everything, my boyfriend and I headed to grab food at CJ’s on the Bay. I ordered a shrimp cobb salad and he ordered a salmon blt. Having dinner while watching the sun go down was the perfect start to our vacation. Highly suggest going here.

CJ's on the Bay

On Sunday, we woke up around 7:30am and went to grab breakfast at Empire Bagel Factory. I would honestly have to say they had the best breakfast sandwich that I have ever had. It is not a big place at all, just a little bagel shop but they do have some table seating inside. We just got everything to go and came back to the house. I ordered a breakfast sandwich with egg, sausage and cheese on a plain bagel, my mom ordered a flagel with homemade veggie cream cheese, and my boyfriend/grandma ordered the lox deluxe. Everything was very good!

Rodeo Drive(7)

After eating breakfast, we hungout by the pool for the rest of the day and played some card games. In the evening, we fished on the docks in the backyard and ordered takeout from Cocomo’s Grill. I ordered the homemade crab cakes which were pretty good. They were definitely on the larger side, so very filling. It came with two sides so I ordered rice and coleslaw. Both pretty good as well. On top of all of that, I ordered a caesar salad and hush puppies. Everything was pretty standard and tasty.

On Monday morning, we woke up early and headed to Tigertail beach with my dad and uncle to go fishing. One thing about this beach is it is a VERY far walk from the parking lot to the actual beach itself. You may think that the brown water is the only view but you have to walk left towards the condominiums to get to the actual ocean. I did find some nice shells though but it was brutally hot and the fleas were horrible. We also were able to catch some fish and see dolphins. My boyfriend insists that he saw a little shark but we can’t confirm. lol.

After fishing, my boyfriend and I went to Doreen’s Cup of Joe for breakfast. If I could recommend anything, it would be this place. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but the breakfast food is by far the best that I have ever had. My boyfriend and I ordered their french toast as well as scrambled eggs and their homemade sausage patties. Both outstanding! We also went here for lunch on Tuesday. I ordered the biscuit sandwich with their homemade sausage. 10/10.After eating here for breakfast, we went back to the house, relaxed, rode bikes, and swam.

One thing with Marco Island this time of year….the sun is HOT. Unlike the Outer Banks where we usually go, there isn’t much of a breeze and it takes the meaning hot to a whole new level. The level where you can’t sit outside in the sun for very long without feeling like death.  So because of that a lot of the time we hangout at the house and just swim in the pool. Monday evening, my boyfriend and I ordered takeout from Pinchers. We went to pick it up and it wasn’t ready yet, so we sat at the bar for drinks. Some drinks were buy one get one so he got a beer and I ordered a sangria. Thinking we would only be paying for one drink, he comes back with two of each. Here it had to be the same drink so needless to say, we got screwed. Lol. It was fun regardless though, we ended up meeting an older couple who live here and we all chatted for a while. It was a cool atmosphere inside and the food was pretty good. I love their cocktail sauce, especially on crackers! I ordered their grilled shrimp which was very good with a side of hush puppies and a caesar salad. He ordered the grouper sandwich and said it was amazing. So I suggest that with a side of their rice because it was super tasty! After getting our food, we went to Dolce Mare to get some chocolates and gelato. I ordered the chocolate gelato and it was very tasty! I am a Sarris Chocolate girl (hey Pittsburgh) so I wasn’t impressed very much by their chocolates. Definitely worth the visit though for the gelato. The staff was also very nice as well.

On Tuesday, we woke up and went to Doreen’s Cup of Joe with all of the family. As stated above, I highly suggest going here. Everything is just so dang good! After breakfast, we all got ready and drove down to Sunset Grill to the public beach. Down here, it is really tough to find a beach that is easily accessible. It was really hard on my mom with m.s and my grandma so we only lasted about an hour. The sand was so white though and the water was a pretty shade of light blue, but it honestly felt like bath water which was not very refreshing. My aunt went to Naples on Wednesday and said the beaches were much much better. So I suggest doing that. After the beach, we all just hung out and relaxed because we were exhausted from the heat. For dinner, we went back to Pinchers for takeout and I ordered a crab cake. It wasn’t horrible but it also wasn’t the greatest.

On Wednesday, my mom, grandma, aunt, and I woke up and went to go to the farmers market which ended up being a bust because it was their off season so we ended up doing some shopping and then headed back to Empire Bagel Factory. Between there and Doreen’s Cup of Joe, I would be broke if I lived here! Lol. They both are so good! There was a really cute boutique next door called OMG That’s Chic. The owner was extremely nice and it was such a neat little shop.

best music fetival style trends(4)

When we got back to the house, I went fishing with my dad, uncle, and boyfriend. We went under the main bridge in which I got absolutely fried. Although I was under a little umbrella, my legs and feet resembled a tomato within just two hours of being outside. So another tip, always wear sunscreen! It was really cool though because we were able to see a lot of dolphins and manatees, up close.

Rodeo Drive(8)After fishing, we went back to the house and swam in the pool. As you could imagine, I was somewhat miserable because of my sunburn but we played a couple of rounds of Uno and then relaxed. After Uno Tom and I ran to a few places, one being the local surf shop. I was able to finally buy myself a cute beach bag. Surf shops always have the cutest things, I swear! Unfortunately, It ended up really storming in the evening so for dinner we just ordered takeout from Joey’s Pizza. I ordered a turkey and provolone cold sub with banana peppers and a side caesar salad. Everyone else ordered more fancy things but because of having a bad stomach, I stuck with a safe meal. On Thursday, the boys woke up early to go fishing so I went outside and relaxed while watching the sunrise and worked on some blog stuff. It has been so nice not having to work down here and actually be able to step back and relax. I ended up taking my grandma out for some shopping to Kay’s Boutique and Bealls Outlet. I have never been to one before and it reminded me a lot like TJ Maxx.

After shopping, my boyfriend and I went to Sunset Grille for lunch and some drinks. We were able to get a table outside on the beach so we ended up staying for a decent amount of time. Since it was right next to the public beach, my aunt went to the beach while we ate. We ended up all going back for dinner and had a really nice time even though it stormed really bad. Before the storms hit, we were able to watch the sun go down which was the perfect backdrop for dinner.

Rodeo Drive(9)Today (Friday), is our flight home. My boyfriend and I woke up and headed back to Doreen’s Cup of Joe one last time which of course was amazing. This time I ordered their fruit belgium waffles with blueberries and strawberries with a side of two scrambled eggs.

Rodeo Drive(10)

After breakfast we just hung out and packed everything back up and headed to the airport around 3:00pm for our flight at 5:55pm which has now been delayed. Not to mad though because I am able to get this post up faster then I thought! Right after getting to the airport and turning our rental car in, we got a tornado warning and a killer storm. So our plane is now delayed until 8:00pm so fingers crossed that still happens! Regardless this trip was one for the books.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA TRIP RECAP + TRAVEL GUIDE

To say the time change had me all messed up is an understatement. I don’t know how people do this all of the time. We flew into LAX on Friday night (May 11) and didn’t get to our hotel until about 9:30pm. Which was actually 11:30pm PA time. I was exhausted and jet lagged beyond belief. Considering none of us really ate anything all day we ended up getting room service which was AMAZING.

la1

On Saturday morning aka my birthday, I ended up waking up at 6:00am LA time due to the alarm clock in my hotel room going off (thanks to whomever set that). Even better, I wasn’t able to fall back asleep. So I was up from 6:00am to about 10:30pm. But since back at home is three hours ahead I was all screwed up. Once I got my shit together, I met my Mom and Gram downstairs for a mimosa to celebrate my 24th birthday. After that we got ready and headed to Rodeo Drive which was exactly what I thought it would be. There were tourists everywhere, exotic cars, and a bunch of stores that sold things I couldn’t afford even if I tried. It was pretty chilly so we didn’t end up staying there too long. We only stopped at Agent Provectur and Sugarfina. Ive wanted to try Sugarfina candy for years and years so I was v happy to get a few things from there. The aesthetic was literal goals. After Rodeo we walked around Two Rodeo Drive which is definitely a must because of the architecture and stone walkway.

Rodeo DriveAfter we left Rodeo, we then headed to The Beverly Hills Hotel to have lunch at The Cabana Cafe. Which honestly was my favorite part of the trip. Everything about it was amazing. The service was great, food was delicious, and the aesthetic was once again everything I’ve ever dreamed of.

After doing all of that we came back to the hotel to relax and then went to Nordstrom Rack. The one back home I think was way better but I did buy a few small things. The mall was like a little city in itself and trying to find a spot to park was mentally exhausting and took forever. One thing I learned about Los Angeles is that even though you may be close to where you’re going, you have to add in traffic which then makes your trip a heck of a lot longer. You could see the mall outside of our hotel room window so Nordstrom Rack was literally right across our hotel next to the 405 but by adding in traffic to it made a 5 minute trip basically 15 minutes. After that adventure, we went back to the hotel to grab some yummy dinner and then headed back to the room to relax and catch some zzz’s!

On Sunday, our second day, we slept in for a little then got up and ready for the day. We ended up driving back to Rodeo Drive to stop at Sephora and Diptyque. Sephora ended up being way better than the one that is at my local mall. They had a larger selection of things and products that I had never heard of. So it was pretty cool checking new products out. I bought some of the HUM daily cleanse vitamins and my Mom and Grammy got some St. Tropez tanning stuff. The workers were extremely nice and with it being Mother’s Day, they gave my Mom a bunch of free samples including some yummy Sugarfina candy. After Sephora, we walked across the street to Diptyque where I finally bought the mimosa candle that has been on my wish list. The girl who helped me was extremely nice and since it was my birthday weekend she gave me a mini sized candle for free. So I didn’t feel as guilty spending $75 for one candle. *insert eye roll* After Rodeo we went back to the car and headed to the Sprinkles ATM which was another thing on my Cali bucket list. It was nothing special but I got some cute pics and a SUPER yummy carrot cake cupcake. We then headed to Alfred Tea Room which was literally the cutest little place. Although it was tough to get to it was well worth the hassle. I wish we had a few back home because the Matcha boba tea I got was literally amazing! For the most part everywhere we went had no parking so it was either park in a parking garage which could get expensive or drive around until you find a spot on the street. I personally think Uber would have been a way better option but with my Mom and Grandma we just decided to drive the rental car around. Near Alfreds there was a cute little farmers market going on so we walked around there for a little bit before heading back to the car. It was actually really cute! There was mostly just a lot of different kinds of food and jewelry. The jewelry was really dainty and adorable but I did good and didn’t buy anything. Shocking I know.

After we did all of that running around we were all exhausted and went back to the hotel to relax, eat, and get some sleep. I ended up ordering room service so it was nice eating a shrimp salad in bed all while drinking a glass of wine with a view of Los Angeles’s Sunset. On Monday morning we all woke up and went downstairs to get some breakfast. Since this was our last full day we had a lot to get done. We ended up going to Venice Beach, In-N-Out, Brandy Melville, Lululemon, Hollywood Walk of Fame, and then went to go see the Hollywood Sign.

I have always heard how good In-N-Out was so I was happy to finally try it out. Considering I have a bad stomach I didn’t try the burgers but the fries were way better than McDonald’s, lol. As for the stars, basically just as you see on TV, it was nothing more than miles of stars. My Grandma wanted to get a picture with Trump’s star so we drove around looking for it. It ended up being in front of a small mall which we were going to anyways because you could see the Hollywood sign from the second level. There was SO many people there that we went and got our pictures and then left. All in all I had a lot of fun on this trip but I probably wouldn’t go again. It was awesome to see all of the things I have heard about and saw on television but the traffic and LA scene is just not for me. If you ever get the chance to go I would definitely check out everything I talked about but make sure to bring a couple of thousand dollars because you will 100% need it.
