A Road Trip Through The Midwest With The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

December 6, 2017

Subaru Crosstrek
It’s no secret that I love to travel. In fact, I’m currently visiting New York City (after spending a weekend in DC). Then in three weeks I’m heading to Orlando to spend the holidays at Disney World and then I’m off on my first Disney Cruise January 2 (talk about a great way to kick off 2018!). The point is, I love traveling. Nothing makes me happier than getting out and exploring new places.

Speaking of exploring new places, although I’ve lived in Chicago my whole life (not counting the four years I lived on the East Coast for college) there are so any places in the Midwest I’ve yet to explore. Since Chicago is within driving distance to so many cool cities, I decided to spend the week of Thanksgiving taking a road trip throughout the Midwest.

Of course no road trip is complete without the perfect vehicle!

Exploring the Harley-Davidson Museum | Milwaukee, Wisconsin

November 29, 2017

Harley-Davidson Museum
No trip to Milwaukee is complete without a visit to the Harley-Davidson Museum! Fun fact: The iconic American motorcycle manufacturer was founded out of a small shed in 1903 by William S. Harley and brothers Arthur and Walter Davidson in Milwaukee! Hence why the museum, which is dedicated to the more than 100-year history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, is located in Milwaukee. 

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the Harley-Davidson Museum: Continue reading

An Afternoon at The Milwaukee Art Museum

November 27, 2017

Milwaukee Art Museum
Happy Monday everyone. I JUST got back home from my mini Midwest Road Trip, in partnership with Subaru! During my road trip I got to test out the new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Stay tuned for a full review SOON! I really love traveling and I had such a great time exploring the Midwest. Speaking of traveling, I’m heading to DC this weekend and then I’m off to NYC next week!

While on my Midwest road trip I got to visit so any fun new cities. The second stop on my road trip (since I’m counting Chicago as the first stop) was Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although I visited Wisconsin a lot when I was a kid (mostly Wisconsin Dells), this was my first time in Milwaukee.

It’s a tradition of mine to always visit an art museum, or any museum, whenever I visit a new place. So obviously my first stop in Milwaukee was the Milwaukee Art Museum! I was super excited to visit the Milwaukee Art Museum because it’s one of the largest museums in the United States! 

Here are some of my favorite photos from the Milwaukee Art Museum:

Disney World Haul: Fall 2017

October 16, 2017

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2017
Happy Monday! Since I just got back from Disney World last week, I thought today would be the perfect time to share some of the souvenirs I picked up while I was at Disney! This trip in particular was so amazing because I got to experience the Epcot International Food & Wine and attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party for the first time ever. That’s what I love so much about Disney, even though I’m an annual passholder and visit all the time, there’s always something new to experience and enjoy (that’s why I’m so excited about all the new rides/lands coming to the parks!).

Since my Disney trips are often so close together, there’s isn’t always a ton of new merchandise from trip to trip. Because of that, I haven’t been getting as many souvenirs as I used to (mostly because I already own so much Disney merch from the parks!). Like I say in all my Disney Haul posts, a quick disclosure: since I am a Disney World annual passholder, I get a pretty good discount on merchandise (20% off!).

Here’s my fall 2017 Disney World Haul:

Three Reasons Why Tucson Should Be On Your Travel Bucket List

October 4, 2017

*Special thanks to Visit Tucson for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions are my own*Tucson Arizona
Although I’ve always loved to travel, I’ve really taken my travel game to a whole new level these past three years. No really, it seems like I’m ALWAYS traveling (in fact, I’m heading to Florida/Disney World in two days!). Some of my friends jokingly say that I live at the airport now. Even though I’ve traveled to a lot of amazing places in my life (my favorites being Paris, the Bahamas, Amsterdam, Los Angeles and Miami), I’m constantly adding new places to my travel bucket list.

Over the past few months I’ve spent a lot of time planning out my next big international trips (Canada and Asia) so I decided to take a step back from that and start looking into a few fun domestic destinations I can visit. Since I always have such a blast on the west coast, I decided to look into visiting Arizona and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered how awesome Tucson is!

Here are three reasons why Tucson is on my travel bucket list (and why it should be on yours too!):
