Dublin, Ireland, Cliffs of Moher, and Galway, Ireland | 11/22/18 – 11/25/18

I recently traveled to Ireland for a weekend and here are some photos I took while I was there. We toured the Jameson Distillery on Bow Street, had a drink at Temple Bar, and toured the west side of the country. I have been to Dublin before; see my first post from last year, here.

On our second day in Ireland, we took a 12 hour tour to the far west side of the country to see the Cliffs of Moher, Kilmacdaugh Monastery, The Burren Rocks, and the city of Galway. This day was one of the coolest things I have ever done and probably one of the best things I did while being abroad. The tour was extremely affordable; it was only 40 Euros a person + additional food and fun expenses. For a full day of travel and sightseeing, this was incredible.

DUBLIN, IRELAND 12/28/17-12/29/17

Hello from Europe!… Dublin, Ireland to be exact. I have been counting down the days since what feels like forever but it’s finally here! I’ll be traveling to other cities as well in Italy so definitely stay tuned for posts coming this week!

DAY 1

24 hours of traveling by car, plane, bus, taxi, train, you name it…we finally made it! Those long hours were so worth it because this place is absolutely gorgeous. Even flying in over the countryside was beautiful and I most definitely want to come back someday and explore the whole country.

On our first day in Dublin, we kind of just walked around the city and ate some good food. My cousin actually lives here so we met up with him! We took one of those touristy bus tours of the city which was tacky but also nice since none of us have ever been here before. This city is huge and so beautiful. Later, we met up with my aunt and uncle who also flew in and who will be spending most of the trip with us.

DAY 2

Now that we all finally caught up on sleep, we spent all of our second day doing things until we wore ourselves out. We crammed so much into one day, it was a lot but I’m glad my family is like this- I want to see as much as I can!

After walking around and visiting some cathedrals (Christ Church and St. Patrick’s) we went to the Teeling Whiskey Distillery. It was super cool to see the actual factory and the process and we got a tasting at the end of the tour. Also, we just so happened to be there at the same time as the Teeling founders and we got to talk to them.

Next we went to the Guiness Storehouse/ Brewery which was probably one of the most unique buildings I have been in. This place was huge and very modern. The tour was neat to see and we got a tasting and a free pint of beer at the end but it’s really a one and done type of deal, for me anyways.

To finish off our short time in Dublin we ended with drinks and dinner with our whole group. I absolutely love this city and want to come back and spend more time exploring. I also now want to visit the rest of the country. The people are so friendly and the views are amazing.

Lee Jeans X Boulevardia 2017

This past weekend I was invited to Boulevardia in Kansas City by Lee Jeans! If you don’t know, Boulevardia is a festival that celebrates music, food, and Boulevard Beer; hence the name. This isn’t a normal blog post for me but I wanted to share some images from this day with Lee!

Since I was attending this event with Lee Jeans, I felt like I should represent them by wearing a pair of their awesome denim! Although it was ridiculously hot, these jeans put my festival look together! I am wearing the Eu Lee – Scarlett High Rise Skinny Jeans in the color Charcoal Powder. I am almost six feet tall (surprise for those who have not met me in person) so I got the length in a 35 and they are PERFECT! – finally, jeans that are long enough!

Accessorizing this outfit was my favorite part! Since my outfit was all black I wanted an intense contrast by pairing lighter colored shoes and a white bandana around my neck!

Lee Jeans was one of the festival’s sponsors and they were celebrating 100 years in Kansas City! I got to hang out in their tent all day with, Lee team member, Janelle McCoy, and my guest, and close fashion friend, Brooke Robertson. Lee had some fun games inside the tent along with a station where you could get custom designs on your denim to benefit Rightfully Sewn!

It was an amazing Saturday spent in the Stockyards District in Kansas City with Lee Jeans. We got to enjoy some great live music on the main stage and even in the parking garage due to the storm; something I will not forget. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity and can’t wait to collaborate with Lee Jeans in the near future!
