I don’t know about you but I draw so much inspiration from accounts I follow on Instagram and I’m always looking for new ones. I thought I would share with you my favorite travel accounts to follow and why. Enjoy! Xo
If you have a serious case of wanderlust you need to follow Rebella. I absolutely love following this account and living vicariously through all of the incredible places they travel. Their content (images/video) are next level and I aspire to create content that is of this caliber. I have a weakness for any location with a coastline. If you are a fan of the tropics like I am, give Rebella a follow.

Talk about life goals! This cute couple travels all over the world for a living and creates some of the most beautiful content I’ve ever seen. Every location they visit has been added to my bucket list. Pretty sure every one of their images has been added to my saved boards for inspiration.
Are you a foodie like I am? Then you need to be following @elsas_wholesomelife. She just released her own cookbook and takes the most incredible food photos. Ellie travels all over the world to try different kinds of plant based food. Talk about a perfect feed too!
All of my family goals! I mean come on! They are a Hawaii beach fam and couldn’t be any cuter! Enjoy following her yummy recipes, island lifestyle, and amazing stories! Seriously, watch her story for some great mini cooking shows!
I recently found this feed and fell in love. Every photo is beautiful and taken in incredible locations. Leonie is more of a fashion based travel blogger so if you are obsessed with all things fashion this is the account for you. Her outfits are styled to perfection and every time I travel I look to her account for inspo.
Hi Everyone! I don’t even know where to begin but today is April 6th, the day the first episode of my talk show premieres! I’m so excited to share this project with all of you. It has been a long time coming and I can’t wait for you all to see it.
How it began:
I have always loved talking to people and listening to their story/struggle/and what motivated them to do what they love to do. The people that I’m surrounded by every day have some of the most incredible stories and I was inspired to share them with you. You see these individuals on your tv screen/social media/etc. but who are they really? I hope my show helps you to get to know the people you look up too or get inspired/motivated by someone you hadn’t heard of before. I have put countless hours into making this show everything I have envisioned in my head and it’s been fun to see it really come to life.
To the People Involved:
I just wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to everyone that has helped make this show happen. Your encouragement and advice hasn’t gone unnoticed. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in my little idea and helping me to make it grow into something incredible.
*New episodes every FRIDAY*
Rise and Shine! My ideal December day consists of sitting in a quaint coffee shop with a pretty latte in hand, listening to the sound of the rain outside the window. Anyone who knows me knows I am the biggest coffee fan. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite California based coffee shops. Enjoy! Xo
1. Alfred’s Coffee
If you’re looking for an amazing cup of coffee and an aesthetic Instagram photo you’ve come to the right place. Alfred’s not only has the best mocha latte but also is one of trendiest spots in Los Angeles. It’s a bit pricey for a cup of coffee but definitely worth it.
2.Verve Coffee Roasters
I was first introduced to Verve in Santa Cruz, California and fell in love. At the time they didn’t have any shops in LA so it was my treat every time I went up to the Bay Area. Now they have a few coffee shops in LA and they are all amazing. They roast all of the beans in Santa Cruz and take time to perfect each cup of coffee. The interior is a modern industrial feel and definitely makes for a great place to catch up on work or study. If you go you also have to add a gluten free donut to your order. They are delicious!
3. Intelligentsia Coffee
I came across Intelligentsia in Venice, California on Abbot Kinney. The interior is definitely an industrial feel with exposed piping and wooden beams but it adds for a cool element. They take time to craft each cup of coffee and you can tell they love coffee as much as you do. My mocha latte was perfect and topped with a pretty foam heart. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
If you’re like me and you have a sweet tooth but are trying to eat a little healthier then you’ve come to the right place! Try this Vegan, Gluten Free, & Paleo Brownie in a mug. It is fast simple and only requires 4 ingredients!
-1 Ripe Banana

2.Add but butter and stir together until creamy
3.Add Cacao Powder (adjust depending on how chocolatey you want your brownie to taste)
4. Add honey for sweetness
5.Microwave for 30 seconds (time may vary depending on microwave)
The most wonderful time of year filled with sparkle, love, crisp winter nights, cozy cuddles, and the people you care about the most. It’s hard to be sad when you are surrounded by so much joy.
On Christmas Eve I spent the whole day helping my mom bake yummy treats and delicious food! We sang Christmas carols and danced around the kitchen with my two sweet new kittens. On Christmas Eve we always get to open one present and it’s always new Christmas pajamas. My brother, mom, and I drive around to look at all of the amazing Christmas lights that my neighborhood puts up every year before going to bed.
In my family we have so many traditions around the holidays and it doesn’t seem to matter how old we get they always seem exciting. It’s crazy to think how fast time goes though. Seems like just yesterday I was waking up Christmas morning to see what Santa brought me and getting so excited to see he ate the milk and cookies I had left him the night before. All of a sudden I’m 23 years old and wondering where the time went between then and now. It’s a bittersweet feeling.
This time of year will always hold a special place in my heart. It really is about giving and not about receiving. When all you care about is being surrounded by the people you love the most and you don’t even know what you could ask for aside from that; you’re doing it right.
Hope you all had an amazing holiday surrounded by friends, family, good food, and loving pets!
