Traveling is an experience like no other. You witness firsthand how other people live their daily lives. #LookAtYouGo #SToKAtTarget #ad What do they traditionally eat for breakfast? How many official languages are there? What do their road signs look like? Where do locals hang out after work? These are questions that never crossed my mind until I took that longggg airplane ride across the globe. Summer is the perfect time to start planning your next trip. 🌞 Sippity, sip, sip on some @stokcoldbrew to keep you cool. Pick some up at your local @target!! As I sit here in sunny San Diego, I reminisce about the months I've spent exploring. After visiting 20 countries (so far), I am humbled by moments, food, people, history, & languages. Do you have any travel plans this summer?? :]
Just had a flashback of how amazing it was to go to Blockbuster as a kid. 📺😍 Remember those days? 🎥 Remember how hard it was to pick out a film? 🎞 Remember you'd almost always run into someone you knew - your neighbour, 3rd grade science teacher, old Girl Scout Troup leader - so your parents would talk to them for eons? Remember dial-up & the days before Netflix & online streaming? 💻 Remember be kind, rewind?” Remember?? Dang, the times have changed & now I feel OLD AF!!!! 👵🏼 __________________________________ What’s a nostalgic memory from your childhood? Did you have the same Blockbuster experience? 😅😬😂 . . . . . . #monjuicbarcelona #travelwriter #montjuic #travelinfluencer #darlingtravels #discoverunder15k #thegirlgang #bloggingbabes #90skids #vintageoutfit #vintagejacket #vintagewear #barcelonaspain #barcelonatravel #barcelonaturisme #problogging #sandiegogirl #californiagirl #californiablogger #cablogger #bloggersgetsocial #spaintravel #barcelona_cat #girlsmeetglobe #thriftedstyle __________________________________ I’ve been watching @officialheyarnold & it’s giving me major flashbacks. 🏈 “Stoop kid’s afraid to leave his stoop!” #stoopkidsafraidtoleavehisstoop #heyarnold
Amsterdam is a buzzing city known for its endless maze of canals, iconic Red Light District 🚨 , abundance of cannabis cafés 🌱 💨 , friendly citizens, & so much more. When I close my eyes I can still picture the croquettes I ate every night in @visit_holland. I soaked in Dutch art & history at the @rijksmuseum. 🖼 I felt an overwhelming wave of emotions at the @annefrankhouse_official -- a must-experience. If you have the opportunity to visit the Netherlands & Amsterdam, I would absolutely recommend it. PS THE NETHERLANDS HAS THE BEST DOUBLE FRIED FRIES with peanut sauce. 😍🥜 🍟 🇳🇱 __________________________________ 🌀 Read my blog post on the Anne Frank House: http://bit.ly/AnneFrankHouseAmsterdam __________________________________ 🌀 See Amsterdam, Netherlands in black & white photography: http://bit.ly/AmsterdamBlackWhite __________________________________ Is Amsterdam on your bucket list? 🇳🇱 What’s your favourite thing to do in Amsterdam?

Scents & smells can trigger memories & emotions. Scientists found evidence that odors trigger more vivid emotional memories compared to images. For example, sniffing the scent of your grandma's perfume versus just staring at the box of her perfume. 👵🏼 This can be both a good or a bad thing. Sometimes the smell can bring along negative emotions or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). So yeah, that's your miniature science lesson for the day. __________________________________ Some of these scents make me feel warm & cozy inside, bring me back to a particular moment in my life, or quite frankly just smell really good. Take a look at my 25 favorite scents & see if you like them too. __________________________________ 1. Fresh laundry 2. Rose 🌹 water 3. Coconut 🥥 4. Rain on asphalt 5. Sweet pea body spray 6.

It's official: I've been self-employed for 2 years! June, although midway through the year, signifies a fresh start to me! 🎉 __________________________________ I work as a manager & consultant for small businesses to improve their content, brand awareness, website traffic, SEO value, & potential sales. It’s difficult but rewarding. __________________________________ @juneshineco , however, doesn’t need me for that, so I took an evening off to celebrate their new Juneshine Scripps Ranch media opening & their 1-year anniversary. 🥰 I chatted with their extremely friendly team (normally I’m an introvert but I tried my damnest to talk to people & speak up & ask questions. A++++ for effort!! ☺️) Anyway, I discovered that we’re both June business babies!!! Mine is 2; Juneshine is 1. Awwww. 💻 So they officially open Saturday June 15, so check them out. __________________________________ I learned a lot this year as far as SEO (search engine optimization), going outside of my comfort zone, understanding the true meaning of networking/connections (building genuine & authentic relationships with people in which you can mutually help each other but in different ways). 💻✅ __________________________________ So have you tried Juneshine or hard kombucha? How long have you followed me? Is there any content/information you want learn about? What would you like to see from me? Feel free to ask a question!! Or just say HI 👋🏼 & tell me your favourite childhood movie! 🍿 🎥
So I jumped out of a plane. ✈️ Rather than pick the cutest shot, here’s the raw footage of part of my jump. I don’t do anything other than smile stupidly into the horizon but HOLY SHIT. ☺️😍☁️ __________________________________ Ok so the first homies hop out, then we start scooting our butts to the edge of the plane, I brace myself, & oh shittttt we’re outtttttttt of the planeeeeeeeee. All I hear is wind 🌬 woooooooshhh. My brain 🧠 adjusts to the feeling of being in the air, something I’ve seen in my dreams but never experienced first-hand. ☁️ I remember to breathe, apparently the altitude & shock can make people forget to inhale & exhale. Then I just... take it all in. In this video you can see I stare out into the abyss beyond. I just wanted to take it all in while I’m up here. __________________________________ Have you ever skydived (or is it skydove!!??)
