Berlin: Top 5 Places to See

Heyaaaa! I’m back with another blog post! This time with a blog post on what I did over a weekend in Berlin. It was my second time visiting Germany in a month (German Road trip post here). And I’m sure I will be going there often during my time living in the Netherlands. Honestly I think if you want to do Berlin right – without rushing, you should plan for 3 full days. Touchdown Berlin Five Sights to See Brandenburg Gate Probably the most popular sight in Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate is super central to all the other places to see in the city. Apparently, people would climb a viewing platform to get a look at life behind the Iron Curtain. Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe The memorial is located a short distance from Brandenburg Gate and when we arrived it was filled with people walking between the…

German Road Trip: Weekend getaway from Frankfurt

Hi lovelies! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted some travel content and I am excited to share with you all my first adventure out of Amsterdam! This German road trip was super spontaneous and unexpected but was so much fun. My friend Tammy (who I met only four weeks ago through Kevin) hit me up and told me she had a free weekend on her whirlwind Eurotrip. So of course I jumped on the opportunity to make a new friend and explore a new country! We decided to fly into Frankfurt, Germany and rent a car to drive to Luxembourg and back. Why, you ask? Well honestly, I looked on a map to see what was around and I saw this little country next to Germany and said yep! let’s do that lol. One of my goals for my time in Amsterdam is to explore places I would not purposely…

Couple Photo Taking Guide: How-to and Gear!

Hello traveling lovebirds, or maybe just friends! I debated a while on whether or not to do this post. But ever since our Joshua Tree trip, the majority of you guys are curious as to how Kevin and I get our couple photos when we travel. And the answer is – we hire a photographer when we travel and the poor guy just follows us around all day. JUST KIDDING! Although occasionally we meet a kind stranger with a good eye. The reality is that I have gear that I bring with me when we travel to be able to capture our photos the way I want them. I’ll post the gear I used when I first started out since not everyone will have a mirrorless or DSLR like I do. Camera: I currently shoot with the Sony A7rii with the 24-70mm lens HOWEVER! When I first started off I just…

Bride Squad Proposal Boxes

When I first started shopping around for items to put in my bridesmaid proposal boxes I was stumped and didn’t know what to get at all. So as a starting point – I used travel and Bali as my theme. And as a general rule of thumb I like to always make sure I’m gifting something I would love receiving myself. And bonus points if it’s something useful! my gorgeous squad! What I included in my Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes What is the biggest part of these goodies? The box of course! I found these glass boxes on the knot wedding shop that were PERFECT! I chose not to get them personalized because I like things low key. They would work great as jewelry boxes or displays once they took the boxes home. You can get them at The Knot Shop here. If you like a more natural look you can…

Ring Shopping: Here’s what I learned

On July 28th I said yes to the love of my life. And on that day I also gladly said goodbye to the days of poring over ring accounts on instagram, reading about what the four C’s were and which were the most important. For all of you lovebirds out there ready to take the next step with your boo, here’s what I learned from my ring shopping experience. I’m picky(ish) – I now know that I am low key (ok I’m high key) picky and I wanted a style that most jewelry stores do not have in store to show (oval shaped). If your lady has specific taste, I HIGHLY suggest going to at least one jewelry store together at least get an idea of what she likes and doesn’t like. Why? Because my ring looks very different from what I imagined I wanted. Many girls I know have…
