Today’s post is a little different, but because I am leaving for Oahu, Hawaii on Thursday and consider myself something of a minimalist packing expert, I thought I would share some of the things I plan to bring on my trip! I made a packing list weeks in advance to make sure I didn’t forget anything, plus I found a ton of cute essential items for the trip that I had to share with you all. Packing for a week long (or more) trip in just a carry on can be tricky, but if you plan ahead and do some research it can definitely be done!
A couple of weeks ago I spent an entire week in New Orleans with my parents and little sister for spring break. It was possibly one of the most inspiring trips I have ever taken. Though it is only a one hour flight away from Houston, it’s such a different city with distinct culture, food, architecture, history, and vibes. We honestly felt like we weren’t in the United States anymore! Continue reading “New Orleans Travel Guide”
As you may have seen plastered all over my Instagram a week or two ago, I went on a fabulous 1.5 week trip to London! We saw so many incredible sights, ate at amazing restaurants (thank you friends for the suggestions), and took some really lovely day trips. If you are looking to plan a trip, check out my tips for travel, packing, food, sights, and day trips! Continue reading “London Travel Guide”
If you read my Bunny Baubles Turns 3 post in it’s entirety (if you did, congrats, that was a novel of a post) you may have seen my note that I’m headed to England tomorrow!! Kyle and his family were nice enough to invite me along, and I couldn’t be more excited. I plan to share some of my travel adventures with you over on my Instagram, so make sure to follow along!
The things we have scheduled include:
- A classic afternoon tea at The Orangery at Kensington Palace

Things we want to do:
- Drink mulled wine at a Christmas market and a beer in a pub
- Go ice skating in Hyde Park
- Have fish and chips and all of the Indian food

Is there anything we are missing? I have been working on getting recommendations from friends on how to get around the city, must see sites, and restaurants, but I would love to hear your tips!
I’ve been dying to share my trip to Hawaii with you all, but my mind has been on vacation mode trying to find the motivation to get started on this post. Coming back to work after a relaxing week off really put a damper on time to get to writing about my exciting adventures in tropical paradise! Continue reading “Woweee Maui! A Trip to Hawaii – Part 1”
