5 States In Four Days With Your Bestie? I Did It

5 States In Four Days With Your Bestie? I Did It

I was blessed to be able to travel through a small part of this country with one of my best friends and here’s some photos from the adventure.

From May 12 to May 16, I was lucky enough to be adventuring. In the span of those four days, I traveled through five states. I experienced wanderlust and beauty during my explorations and I’m so glad I did it with one of my best friends. The purpose of the trip was to ride back with one of my best friends as she moved back to Michigan from Massachusetts, where she lived for a year. I took some gorgeous photos along the way, so I’m going to let them do the talking and show our trip.

A plane ride at 6 AM made for a gorgeous sunrise and seeing it from the air made it a million times better.

Downtown Boston was absolutely incredible and it was amazing to see. I was blessed on this trip with good coffee, homemade food and treats, and great views.

Best apple turnover I’ve ever had from Mike’s in Downtown Boston.

Winchester, Massachusetts.

Visiting the gorgeous coastline on Crane Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts.

R.I.P. to the little crab dude I found on the beach.

The breathtaking Crane Estate at the top of the hill at Crane Beach. (This place was seriously a palace.) Definitely could get used to this gorgeous view of the coast from the estate.

All of the above was from my first day on the trip and my early time in Mass.

Pretty relaxing day number two but my breakfast was cute and aesthetic. Also below are some other cute aesthetics from the last days I spent in Mass.

My friend’s Uncle who we stayed with, owns a gas station and car garage that made for an artsy photo. Our last stop before heading out.

Just like that, New York stole our hearts. Our adventure in New York was incredible from the Buffalo city views that we saw to our cute tattoos we spontaneously got. Shoutout to Divine Machine Tattoos in Buffalo for our second set of matching tats.

Had to include the Starbucks that we got on the way to Buffalo.

The Air BnB we stayed in was so colorful and cute. Thank you, Buffalo, NY.

The symbol for explore. When in New York, am I right?

Finally, our three-state excursion today with only minor bumps brought us back home to where our hearts our in the Mitten state.

I was blessed to explore and adventure with one of my very favorite people and I’ll never forget my trip.

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.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
