Elk Season in the Rocky Mountains

Elk Season in the Rocky Mountains

One of the days I was in Colorado, my stepmom and I went up to Rocky Mountain National Park for the afternoon. We had planned on driving up the mountain and doing a little hiking, but quickly got sidetracked as herds of elk appeared at […]

The Official Toast Guide to Dublin

The Official Toast Guide to Dublin

Although I’m already back in the US, I wanted to make sure to put together a list of all my favorite spots in Dublin while it’s still fresh. I love giving suggestions when people visit, so I wanted to share the spots that I have loved […]

Beaches and Beer Part 2: Berlin

Beaches and Beer Part 2: Berlin

Part two of our trip was a stop in beautiful Berlin. My friends had really hyped Barcelona and it was definitely so fun, but I just totally vibed with Berlin. The crisp air, the sense of history, and the low-key atmosphere of the city were […]

The National Botanic Gardens of Ireland

This is by far one of my favorite spots in Dublin! Peaceful, tucked away, and completely gorgeous, the Dublin Botanic Gardens are a great way to spend an afternoon, whether you’re local or just in for the weekend. The gardens are home to two enormous greenhouses […]

An Afternoon in Glasnevin Cemetery

Last week, I took my parents to a few of my favorite spots around the city, one of them being Glasnevin Cemetery up on the North side of the city. Now I know it sounds totally morbid to go hang out in a cemetery, but it’s actually […]

Howth Sweet Howth

So I know it’s been a few days since my last post and that’s because my beautiful friend Kristin was here visiting from New York! We’ve been doing all the tourist stuff here in Dublin (Trinity, Kilmainham Jail, Guinness) but also decided to get out of the […]
