San Diego Road Trip

Check out my San Diego road trip pictures in this post. The road trip began at 1 am and we arrived from the Bay Area to San Diego at around 10:40 am. We stopped two times during the trip.

Updated Travel Carry-on

A wheel went missing from the carry-on I got last year. This is my updated long-term travel luggage carry-on. I purchased a vegan leather travel bag from Sole Society final sale for about $34 bucks. The inside of the bag has three pockets and a stylish black and beige print. The bag has an extendedContinue reading “Updated Travel Carry-on”

Howth Day Trip & Fish and Chips Review

This morning I visited Howth for the first time with new friends. I recommend taking a trip there from Dublin because it’s a fast journey via DART (train) and supremely scenic. The water is a gorgeous blend of turquoise and dark blue. Together, we walked the Cliff Path Loop and then went to The BloodyContinue reading “Howth Day Trip & Fish and Chips Review”

Box Braids – Third Time’s the Charm

I’ve gotten box braids with extensions done three times now. The first time I got the style installed was in North Carolina. The stylist made the braids skinnier than I anticipated and used *gasp* 20 packets of hair! I loved the results of this first experience. The hair was not too itchy and the qualityContinue reading “Box Braids – Third Time’s the Charm”

My Long Term Travel Luggage Packing

When it comes to airport travel, I’ve been aboard the struggle bus for many years. Mainly, because of inexpensive and overweight luggage. 😦 I’ve always dreamed of worry free long distance travel with luggage packed thoughtfully under the 50 lb weight limit. Throughout my high school years I traveled from state to state following my family’sContinue reading “My Long Term Travel Luggage Packing”

Iceland = Price-land?

Iceland was a bucket list travel destination I’ve longed to visit for about 6 years. I finally was able to go with my mother as a college graduation trip May 2018. Did it live up to my expectations? Yes! Was it expensive? Very! The nickname the locals joke about rings true, Iceland is “Price-land$$$”, butContinue reading “Iceland = Price-land?”
