Weekend Adventures: Duplin Winery

at

Duplin Winery is North Carolina’s oldest and largest operating winery located in Rosehill, NC. They are famous for their wonderfully sweet muscadine wines but sell a plethora of products. Such as jam, spreads, fudge, chocolate, etc. In 2016, they produced and sold about 1,069,896 gallons of wine 😲Pulling up the Duplin Winery’s front shop, I loved the look of the rustic farmhouse-esque setting! How cute…

My 24 Hours in Beverly Hills

at

At the beginning of June, I flew to Beverly Hills for a Press Junket. My time was short but sweet! I packed two dresses, a makeup bag, and my toothbrush and was headed on my way. After 7 hours and two layovers I landed in LAX with my dreams and my cardigan. (Welcome to The USA, anyone?)I’ve always wanted to visit California so I jumped at the opportunity…

Weekend Adventures in Oakridge, NC

at

After the plane incident, I needed a weekend to relax and clear my mind. Where better to do that than Oakridge, NC? I took the weekend to surround myself with friends and family, get much-need rest, and submerse myself in nature. I had the most fantastic time as Tyler, my boyfriend, showed me around the town which he grew up in. Oakridge is a small country town that is…

Weekend Adventures: The Mayton Inn

at

This past weekend was my 22nd birthday and Tyler and I’s anniversary so we decided to treat ourselves! The Mayton Inn was recommended to me by a co-worker and the cherry on top for the weekend. Although, The Mayton Inn was only twenty minutes away from our apartment in Raleigh, It was nice to take some well-deserved R&R for the night.The Mayton Inn is…

Weekend Adventures: Asheville

at

We had the absolutely most amazing time in Asheville, NC!!! So much so that Tyler wants to move there now… 😳I booked our Asheville trip pretty last minute. I pounced on the idea of a weekend getaway and had heard lots of great things about the town. Also, I selfishly wanted time with Tyler to myself (aka: no video games!). This was our first experience with Airbnb and definitely not…

Weekend Adventures: Ocean City, NJ

at

I grew up in New Jersey and try to visit my home state every now and then. Until recently, I hadn’t visited New Jersey in over a year so this trip was long overdue! I was only in town for three days but somehow managed to fill the weekend with fun activities. Even though I’m glad I left Jersey, I enjoyed seeing my family, friends, and Wawa. Sheetz…

Weekend Adventures: Philadelphia, PA

at

I often complain about my 20-minute commute to work but it takes my parents OVER AN HOUR each day to get from Jersey to Philly. Their commute absolutely stresses me out! It can be difficult and expensive driving in Philly, so most people depend on the speed line or train for transportation. Monday morning, I accompanied my mom on her ride into the city. When I lived up North…

Weekend Adventures: High Point University

at

This past weekend, I took a trip to my alma mater with my Jord watch. I graduated from High Point University this previous May and feel lucky to live close enough that I’m able to take day trips. As much as I love my job and new city, I can’t help but miss college!! High Point University gave me the best four years and I’m forever thankful…
