Exploring Newport, R.I.

New England is home to many seaside gems, each one about just at beautiful and full of coastal charm as the next - so much so that it often is hard to play favorites. However, after spending the beginning of last week there, I can assure you that Newport definitely falls near the top on my list of top new England destinations. Newport is such a quick trip from Connecticut, which makes for a great weekend getaway or even just a quick day trip!

My Favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It's that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is back & it's better than ever. I'm not going to lie, I have a hard time shopping for fall and winter pieces when we are still very much in the heart of summer. There's just still so much cute summer wear out there and thinking about fall and winter is the last thing I want to do! However, it is definitely in my best interest (or my wardrobes at least) to take advantage of some of this amazing sale. My future self will thank me - and so will yours! 

For those of you unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it is the biggest sale of the year and features new items at limited-time prices - yes, new pieces! It is such a great time to get your wardrobe ready for the upcoming season and at theses prices, you just can't beat it. 

It can be a super overwhelming sale to shop, as there is so much included in the sale, so I wanted to share some of my favorites from the sale. These are the pieces that caught my eye and that I will be shopping, but definitely head to Nordstrom's website to shop the entire sale. Enjoy! 

p.s. The sale is only currently open to Nordstrom cardholders, but it will be open to everyone starting on July 20th!

Where to Eat in Barcelona

When I first traveled to Spain back in 2016 one of the things that I was pleasantly surprise at and one that remained most memorable upon my arrival home, was the food. It was so good and so it became one of the things I was looking forward to most when I returned last month. 

At the beginning of June when I headed back to Barcelona, it was again the food that I looked forward to the most! Once again it did not disappoint - if anything, it was even better this go around. With a little bit of luck & a little bit of research, we found some of the best spots with even better food. I always appreciate restaurant and bar recommendations when I head to a new destination, and I wanted to do the same for you guys! Below are my favorites for the lively city of Barcelona. Enjoy!

All Things Americana

Can you believe it!? The Fourth of July is already upon us! Every year it creeps up on us, and yet every year I'm always surprised at how fast it comes and goes. Fourth of July is honestly one of my favorite holidays. To me, it represents everything I love so very much about summertime in the USA. I always feel like summer flys by after the Fourth, so I try to savor every second!
