After graduation, I took a trip to Ireland with my family. It was by far one of the best trips I’ve ever been on. Ireland is such a beautiful country. We spent the first 3 days in Dublin exploring the city. Although Dublin was not my favorite place in Ireland, it is definitely a must visit destination.
On our second day there, some family friends took us on a walking history tour around the city. I loved hearing directly from the locals about their home. The Guinness Factory is also a must when planning your trip. It sounds like a tourist trap but it was fascinating. It’s a seven floor museum where you learn all about how the beer is made and can even learn how to pour the perfect glass of Guinness. Finally, on the top floor of the factory is a bar that overlooks the entire city of Dublin where you can enjoy a glass of Guinness poured to precision.
Here is a list of places to go in Dublin:
The Brazen Head
Stay tuned for other posts on the rest of my trip as well as my Ireland packing list!

What’s on your wish list for the start of summer?
I must apologize for being MIA for the past month… It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. First off, I graduated college, with a BA in dance and a minor in business. The dress I wore for the graduation ceremony was from Nordstrom. Not only was it extremely comfortable but the best part was that it had pockets!!
I also signed my lease for an apartment in Brooklyn with two of my closest friends but, I’ll be spending one more summer on the Cape filled with (hopefully) lots of adventure and beach days. There will be many big changes happening in my life in the next couple of months, which I will sharing, so make sure to follow along!
What are your summer plans?
Saratoga, New York
Earlier in the spring I spent a long weekend visiting my sister in Saratoga Springs, New York. Saratoga is a beautiful little town and offers the perfect getaway from the city. Ally took me to the center of town and we spent the afternoon wandering around boutiques and enjoying a coffee at a local coffee shop. I had the best croissant from a cute cafe called Mrs. London’s, if ever in the area be sure to stop there for breakfast!
For dinner we had Mexican at a great spot called Cantina. Although it was a small town, there was still so much to do. I’m looking forward to planning a trip there this fall.
