The 11 Most Breathtaking Places You Should Visit

It's worth it.

15

I've spent many summers traveling to some incredible places with my family, places that have quite literally taken my breath away. As I was thinking about all of the vacations I've been on so far, I realized that there were too many to remember. But these 11 destinations were so breathtaking they stood out from the rest. I 100% percent recommend that you check these out.

1. The Redwood Forest, California

Nothing makes you feel small like huge trees that are the height of football fields.

2. Seward, Alaska

Not only does this town have a bay, but it's also the mural capital of Alaska. It's such a cute touristy town and it was my favorite part about my family vacation to Alaska.

3. Banff, Canada

I've never truly felt like a princess until I stayed in this castle. It feels and looks like something straight out of a fairytale.

4. Carmel, California

When I visited this place, I felt like I was in a Disney movie where the characters visit a really nice hotel and somehow wreak havoc on it. The lavender lemonade, board game rooms and so much more made me feel unworthy of being at that ranch.

5. Bryce Canyon, Utah

While all of the canyons in the west are incredible, this one stuck with me for some reason. Every part of the canyon looked like it was individually carved out and designed a certain way, and it always took my breath away.

6. Patagonia, Argentina

This iceberg is probably halfway melted, but it was still incredible to get a chance to walk on it and see it up close.

7. Grand Canyon, Arizona

The Grand Canyon got its name for a reason.... because it's just, GRAND.

8. Savannah, Georgia

What's not to love about the Spanish moss, the boardwalk downtown, and the beautiful historic buildings?

9. Destin, Florida

I will NEVER get over the beauty of the white-sand beaches and the crystal-clear water. Destin is truly a gem that everybody needs to discover.

10. Antelope Canyon, Arizona

I can actually say I've been to a place that is on people's MacBook backgrounds. Truly a site that you have to see with your own two eyes.

11. Wasila, Alaska

Honestly, I wish I could live in Alaska. It's so pretty, clean, and everything just feels like it was made for a Hallmark movie.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
