Off to Hilton Head Island!

Today I'm heading to this beautiful place...

However, my days will be mostly spent watching this...

We're going to Hilton Head Island for a tennis tournament! I'm excited to see my sister play, and we'll also be spending some time at the beach so, what could be better!?
If I take pictures on the trip I'll be sure to share them!

Hope you guys have a Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Duke Gardens!

Hello lovelies!
I went on an unexpected visit to the Duke Gardens this week so, my outfit isn't that special and neither are these pictures! I also didn't take very many. But, on my next visit, the pictures will be much better :)

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Myrtle Beach!!!

(how beautiful does the beach look!? this was taken by me)

I am sooo sorry it took me this long to blog about the beach! I haven't been motivated and I've been super busy, needless to say blogging hasn't been the easiest!
Anywayssss, I'm here to tell you all about the beach! On Friday we drove 4 1/2 hours to Myrtle, unpacked our bags, and got ready for dinner! We had quite a walk before we got to our restaurant, on the way we stopped in a few cute stores. We got to our restaurant (I can't remember the name to save my life) and it was a very laid back, chill, American restaurant. We all ordered a cheeseburger and fries---so yummmmy! We then went to the grocery store to get a few things for breakfast, lunch, and to snack on! We also got to get temporary tattoos...why not, right!?!? We checked out, then headed back to the condo. We were hoping the lazy river would be open but we missed it by about 10 minutes! So, we decided to put our tattoos on and have girl talk, instead! :)

Saturday, we woke up around 8, hoping for a sunny, warm day! It was foggy and cold. Not exactly the best beach weather! We ate breakfast, then walked to the Starbucks downstairs. I got a warm chai latte! So yummy! We headed back upstairs, changed into our swimsuits, and decided to go down to the lazy river and hot tubs! I had never been in a lazy river before so, I was supppper excited! We went in the lazy river(SO FUN), then sat in the hot tubs waiting for it to warm up some... About an hour later, it got really sunny and warmed up enough to go tan! We excitedly grabbed our bags and headed down to the beach :). We tanned, went for a walk hoping to get to the pier but never made it, played in the ocean(my favorite) jumping waves, tanned again, then went in for lunch. We had roast beef sandwiches, potato chips, and fruit rollups! Not the healthiest thing ever, but so good!! We went back down to the beach for a few hours, then went to the 5th floor to tan, more girl talk, and nap. I slept for a good 30 minutes :), it felt so good! We then headed back in, showered, and went to dinner! We ate at a delicious seafood restaurant called the Sea Captain House. I got my favorite, crab cakes and steamed vegetables! Ahh, I can taste it now! While Hannah and Ali went to a teen club, Dusty and me, by choice, went back to the condo and watched a Lady Gaga concert on HBO and fell asleep for the rest of the night.
Sunday, we basically went down to the beach for a couple hours, packed up, and drove home!
It was a realllly fun trip!! Thank you to my best friend, Hannah, for taking me!

The pictures are showing up blurry for some reason so you can see the rest, here.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Packing List & Tips!

Hiii friends!
I'm going to Myrtle Beach for the weekend with my best friend, Hannah! I'm so excited!
Packing for the beach can be tricky... Why? Because the weather varies! It gets chilly at night, it's colder by the beach, etc. What would be worse than packing for the wrong weather and/or forgetting something!? I personally think something like that can sometimes ruin an entire trip. So, it's always good to make a packing list! Especially for the beach!
Below I have a packing list for general outfits, the beach, toiletries, and a miscellaneous list. You guys obviously don't have to have the exact same items but you can plug your own items into my general packing list and/or add more! I also have some general packing tips!

  • Always check the weather two-three days before. Be sure to look at the HIGH and the LOW. That's very important!
  • When packing for Spring/Fall vacations, always pack for a warmer temperature and a cooler temperature. For Summer/Winter vacations, the weather will generally be the same the whole time.
  • Make a list of general outfits, MISC items, and toiletries.
  • Make sure you have enough time to pack! Rushing always ends in forgetting things.


What are you doing this weekend?
