Vacation Wants

Psst…this post contains affiliate links. Since winter was such a dud in Austin this year and temperatures are already more than spring-like, I’ve moved on to summer vacation and counting down the days (96 to be exact) until our upcoming family trip to Tulum in June. I know the cool kids are on to other destinations, but Tulum is still…

Target Swim 2016

This post is sponsored by Target. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that make Oh Hey possible. I was a bit of an early bloomer and remember feeling self-conscious shopping for a swimsuit as early as 4th grade. When other girls were getting their first itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikinis, I was looking for a one-piece bathing suit that minimized…

I went to Yale. Kinda.

Last month, I spent a week at Yale University attending the Yale Publishing Course. We won’t get into the semantics of if I went to Yale or if I went to Yale, largely so that I don’t have to crush my own dreams, but it’s a funny thing to sit in a classroom at an Ivy League school in your…

Goodbye November

Soooooo, I ended up taking an unplanned blogging hiatus that I didn’t even realize I needed for most of November. (Thank you for sticking around). During that time, I expanded my repertoire of feet and dog photos, spent a week in Tulum, decided that I need to give Whole30 a go (have you seen Mandy?), and started mentally planning some…

Palm Springs Adventure

And by “adventure” I mean laying by the pool, reading, drinking, and eating for a week. Exactly as planned. I met my sister in LA and we drove to Palm Springs where we stayed at the ACE Palm Springs because everybody stays at the ACE, right? Since we were there the week before Labor Day, the pool was delightfully quite…

Austin Staycation: Lakeway Resort and Spa

I was invited to be a guest at Lakeway Resort and Spa. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that make this blog possible! I have a confession to make. I’ve lived in Austin for over four years and I’ve never seen Lake Travis. I realize how ridiculous this sounds. I mean, it’s a lake. In…

Solo Travel: Scottsdale

I’ve been talking about taking a solo vacation for a very long time and guess what? I finally did it! The weekend definitely had a few awkward moments (trying to take a selfie at the top of a scenic overlook and eating alone at a hip and happenin’ restaurant top that list) and sometimes you wish you had someone with…
