36 Hours in Toronto - Packing List

Here's what I'm thinking about packing for my short trip this weekend:
36 hours in toronto

I'm packing low-maintenance dresses - ones that will be comfy for the plane rides up and back - and of course, a fun clubbing outfit for Saturday evening. I'll be wearing comfy boots so that I'll be happy walking all around the city and a light jacket, in case it gets chilly.

I'm so excited to carry a tiny travel bag that's stuffed with just two little outfits because I'll be able to go through security in a flash. Of course my camera is coming with me. I've been to Toronto several times but haven't explored it in a touristy setting, so I'm really excited. I looked up cool places we should visit and I have a few sites that are high priority. And we'll certainly Yelp our tummies happy once we get there.

I'm also incredibly excited to update my blog when I get back. I've been traveling so much this year and it's been awesome - Texas, DC, Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, Teddy Roosevelt National Park, France, Miami, and soon I'll be adding Toronto and Turks & Caicos to the list. I think this might be my most travel-y year yet. Oh! And because my cousin and her husband have moved to Philly, I expect that we'll be doing a short trip there soon. I'm having so much fun and I feel so blessed. So many local trips mixed in there, which is nice because they're budget friendly as well.

Thanks for reading! xoxo.

What's In My Carry On

This weekend, I'm traveling to Toronto with my friend, H, who is also a huge travel buff. I think she's the only person I know who is probably more wanderlusty than I am, and I think that's saying quite a lot. We're headed up because one of the best clubs ever (The Guvernment) is closing its doors soon and we wanted one last awesome cheers. I'll be sharing the good bits of the trip here, I'm sure. We're flying up on Saturday and flying back down on Sunday so we'll have plenty of time for exploring before and after we party.

Since I've got all of that fun stuff going on, I thought I'd share an updated 'What's in my carry on?' since it's been about two years since I've last shared my carry on contents. Not much has changed, really, which I think speaks to how streamlined and cool I am. Jokes! But seriously, it does speak to my preferences because I'm not an over-packer but I still love to have certain essentials at my disposal when I travel (namely by plane).
When I say "carry on" I mean the little bag that fits in the space below the seat in front of me. I never check luggage so all of my bags are technically carry ons but the one that goes in the overhead compartment isn't exactly the most convenient thing to rummage through once you're aboard and flying. That bag has clothes and shoes and underpants in it. The more accessible bag has stuff I might need throughout the flight.

4 Years!

What the heck? Has it really been five friggin' years since I started blogging over here? That's crazy to me. I actually started this blog as a way to document the 10-day, 4-city Euro trip I was planning with a former beau. I wrote down every bit and bob of the decision-making and booking process and then relived it afterwards through this online space. I had never meant for it to be anything more than a personal diary.
This blog has changed a bit since its early days. I've been sharing quite a few DIYs and even a nail tutorial here and there. I've traveled to several new countries (including Turkey and Belize) and I learned that I love to snorkel. And lucky for me, I've got a few consistent visitors and my readership is pretty impressive, considering this is still just a fun little hobby for me.

Here's to another five years filled with traveling and DIYs and lots of fun. Thanks to everyone who reads. Cheers!
