Since moving to Boston my boyfriend and I have been super fortunate to visit Martha’s Vineyard a couple times. Close family friends of my boyfriend have a house on the island and have invited us up and showed us the truly incredible place it is. When I first heard of Martha’s Vineyard I imagined a preppy paradise full of hydrangeas and ultra wealthy people, but in reality the island is so much more. Gorgeous rolling farmland, home to a beautifully rugged coast and a Native American reservation. While tourism is a dominant industry, so is farming and fishing, there are tons of local art galleries, pottery studios and photographers. It reminds me a lot of Brittany in France in all the best possible ways. An gorgeous escape into nature featuring some of the best farm produce and seafood you can find on this coast.
Of course if you are looking for a beach getaway filled with Vineyard Vines ( yes it is from here!) and hydrangeas you were not misled, the island features all that and more!

London is a city I have always loved and always wanted to move to, so when two of my best friends from university moved there it was the perfect excuse for another friend and I to take a trip across the pond! My total trip was ten days, 7 in London and then 3 in Dublin. It was a total dream trip and today I am just going to talk about how I spent a week in the beautiful, Royal city!
