Home Sweet Columbus

Hello sunshines! With the recent Columbus movie that was released, which highlights the architecture of my hometown Columbus, IN, I thought I would showcase some of the landmarks! It was August when we went back home to visit my family, so my outfits are definitely a bit on the summery side; however, I think I’m wearing pieces that can be […]

A Weekend Getaway to Milwaukee

Hello sunshines! Over Memorial Day weekend, Mr. Photographer (aka Mr. P) and I drove to Milwaukee for a quick weekend getaway! Milwaukee is only a 1.5 hour drive away from Chicago, so we visit frequently when both of us need a break from the city. Everywhere you go, Milwaukee is just so quiet. It’s still a city, but so quiet […]

Loungin’ in the Jamaican Sun

Hello sunshines! As many of you saw from insta, Mr. Photographer and I went to Jamaica for a week! We celebrated Thanksgiving early with both of our families since we were leaving on Thanksgiving day for Montego Bay. We stayed at Secrets St. James, and let me tell ya, it was amazing. Breathtaking views, luxurious suites, and delicious food & drinks. We loved it there and will definitely be checking out other Secrets locations in the future!  The day we arrived at the resort, the bell boy takes one look at our luggage and goes “that’s it?!?!!” Mr. Photographer and I are awesome packers, we fit all our things into one carry-one luggage and a backpack! I had all the essentials (7 different bikinis, hehe), enough thin dresses for dinner, a few cover-ups, a pair of wedges, and a couple pairs of sandals! What more do ya need when you’re on the beach loungin’ away in the sun?! The second day at our resort, we’re waiting in line at the Caribbean jerk chicken stand and guess who I see? Frankie Muniz from Malcolm in the Middle! I did a few double takes, and was convinced it wasn’t him at first. THEN later in the day, we sat a few chairs down from Anthony Anderson, the main guy from the show Blackish! IT DOESN’T STOP THERE. As we were walking back to our room, we walked right past Kevin Dillon, aka […]
