How to Plan the Best Girls Trip Ever + Adirondack Dude Ranch Recap

Hi all.

So I’m back from my three-day girls trip to the Adirondacks, and let me tell you…it was so needed. First of all, we had an entire free week to burn before graduation. In other words, why the hell not shack up at a dude ranch in the mountains for a few days? 

Secondly though, I think all lady gangs should do this kind of a thang more often. Getting away from the hustle & bustle for a few days was honestly priceless. We particularly loved the place that we stayed, because it was all-inclusive. Therefore, all of our meals and activities were included with our lodging. We had ZERO things to worry/stress/overthink/plan about.

The Weekend Edit: 36 Hours in Pittsburgh

Ahh another week, another “Weekend Edit”.

This weekend was particularly fun, because I was in Pittsburgh visiting Richard & Pixie, our little Chi-Pom (Chihuahua x Pomeranian) pup. I wasn’t able to stay long, since I had class this morning, but the short little vacay was much needed and appreciated. 

Also: for those of ya who don’t know, R. is stationed in PA this semester for an internship, while I’m here in New York finishing up my undergrad degree. So, even just 36 hours spent together is better than nothing!

It’s been a hot second since I posted the last ‘Weekend Edit’, when I shared R.’s birthday celebrations and an official reveal of our new puppy Pixie. However, I’m happy to be back with another recap after a bit of downtime! I love sharing a look into my daily life with you guys, and I hope that you enjoy learning a bit more about me as well. 

As for this weekend…

It. Was. BUSY.

The Weekend Edit: A Windstorm, Birthday Festivities & Our New Puppy

First off, thanks to all of ya’ll who stopped by last week to check out the first ever “Weekend Edit”. I really enjoyed getting a bit more personal with you guys, and I got a generous amount of positive feedback to boot!

But let’s talk about this weekend, shall we? 

I mean, it was kind of a big deal since R. turned 21…on Sunday.

So it obviously wasn’t the wildest time haha, but we had a lot of fun going midnight bowling and eating too much cookie cake on Saturday night. For those of ya who don’t know, Richard’s interning in Pittsburgh this semester, so I really didn’t care what we did this weekend as long as we could spend it together.

New Series: The Weekend Edit

For those of you who follow along regularly, you may or may not have noticed that I almost never post to the blog on weekends. I’m active on Snapchat (@blondechiffon) and Insta, but I’ve always felt that people aren’t as apt to go read a blog post on Saturday or Sunday as they are during the regular week. I honestly have no idea whether this is true or not (bad blogger, not doing my research, I know), but it’s also nice to take a little breather and come back strong on Monday.
