Damn, it’s been a while! I shared that I had a blog on my insta and then fell off the face of the planet. But I am BACK! Hopefully, with a vengeance, but like, the fun kind. They say with a blog consistency is key, but isn’t a surprise also fun? So here goes, Legit Sh*t Number 6.
I was lucky enough to ring in my 29th year of life in the Big Easy. This was my second time going to New Orleans, but the first time was such a whirldwind that I barely left Bourbon St (do not recommend doing this). This time I got to enjoy some of the city’s best food and sights. I even got my tarot cards read for the first time ever! Read on for my favorite food/sight picks.
Since I was hauling myself over to the west coast for a Tuesday night concert, I figured I might as well make a week of it, so after my trip to the Bay Area I hopped on a short flight to Seattle and met my sister who had flown in from FL. It was our first time in the city, but I think we did it pretty well. In today’s post I rank our eats, drinks, and activities from my fave to least fave (but honestly, we pretty much loved everything).
Before a whirlwind trip of going to LA back in 2011 for the VMAs (which included an upcloseandpersonal rendition of “One Thing” by One Direction), I had never been to California. But somehow in the past couple of years, I’ve been back to the West Coast a few times and it has a special place in my heart. As if it hasn’t become clear, I will travel for a boy band member, and this time it was for Harry Styles. He didn’t disappoint, and neither did the food/drink in the Bay Area-Berkeley/ Oakland,/SF and a day-trip to nearby Sonoma.
[A note: It’s beyond sadness and comprehension what’s going on in Northern California with the fires. It feels so superficial to be writing this fluffy post about food/drink right now, but it’s such a beautiful and resilient area and I know it’ll come through this even stronger.]
I love to recommend things that I love. I seriously get JOY when I walk in someone’s bathroom and see a spray or candle I gushed about. So this list of Legit Sh*t is close to my heart. Some of the things on here might be bizarre, or already so well known they don’t merit restatement, but many of the things on here I’m constantly asked about, so I feel there is some segment of society that hasn’t been clued in to these gems yet. Read on to see some legit shiz I can’t live without.
