Our stay at Under Canvas Grand Canyon

As part of our American road trip I booked a variety of locations for us to stay; including hotels, motels, cabins, airbnb’s a tiny house and a night of glamping. We’d never been glamping before but our night at Under Canvas ended up being our favorite part of the trip.

The best deals for Black Friday 2019

The best deals for Black Friday 2019

Christmas is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more happy. I’ve been listening to my favorite Christmas playlists since the first of November, to my boyfriend’ dismay, and secretly want to put the Christmas tree up already. It’s also the time of the year where I start to make lists of potential gifts for friends and family and that’s where Black Friday comes along.

A little update: house hunting & road trip planning

A little update: house hunting & road trip planning

While working on my blog the other day I realized that it had been a while since I shared a more personal post. Although personal posts are often my favorite post to read, they just never seem to make it onto my content planning. Behind the scenes some exciting things are happening that I really want to share; time for a little update. Are we moving? It’s been a year since my boyfriend and I moved into our current apartment and we still love living here.

Moving in together is exciting but it also comes with uncertainties; will everything work…
