Roadtripping Through the Pacific Northwest

By |2021-05-05T19:38:55+00:00May 3rd, 2016||

The Pacific Northwest is filled with iconic landscapes, dense forests, and coastline scenery so beautiful that it would turn even the most modest Instagrammer into a feed-spamming nightmare. After moving to the West Coast from New York, I've made the trip here many times, but on my most recent visit to what's commonly referred to ...

Roadtripping Through Iceland

By |2021-05-05T19:47:34+00:00February 16th, 2016||

Over the past couple months, I noticed more and more of my photographer friends were visiting Iceland. Even more of the Instagrammers I follow were visiting, too. No doubt this is because the scenery here is stunning–with tall, snowy mountains, winding dirt roads, tall pine trees and striking black beaches. Iceland is a no-fail, ...

Ojai is a small, sleepy town nestled at the foot of the Topatopa Mountains in Ventura County, California. Just two hours and 80 miles northwest of L.A., it's quickly becoming a destination–not only for Los Angolans, but also drawing in creative types from places like Brooklyn, Denver, and Austin.

On short notice, my husband Kai and I decided to visit my folks out in Fort Collins, Colorado. We make the trip out west once to twice a year, because besides our family, it’s one of our favorite places to visit. Colorado is one of those states with countless destinations–some of the ...

Shawnee Island Glamping, PA

By |2021-05-07T05:51:27+00:00October 29th, 2015||

A few weekends ago, after rousing from a comfortable queen size bed inside a large canvas tent, I woke up to the smell of bacon, freshly brewed coffee, and a roaring fire. The camp guide, after greeting me good morning, asked if I would like a fresh pastry, some fruit, or perhaps ...

My American State Park Honeymoon

By |2021-05-05T20:40:09+00:00August 24th, 2015||

Traveling is something I think most people hold dear–aside from the thrill of exploration, traveling can teach us a lot about ourselves. For our honeymoon last May, my husband Nick and I packed up our lives and headed west in search of the expansive country that we had yet to experience. Not only did it offer ...

Harriman State Park

By |2015-07-28T18:10:53+00:00July 28th, 2015||
