let's talk priorities

I often get asked how I get to travel so much. Luckily some work projects require travel so that's fun. The other half is all me. I make it a priority in my life because it's important to me.

I don't come from a rich family ( my parents won't cut me a check // I work really hard and support myself 100%), no one is funding my travels but me. SO HOW YOU ASK?!?! 

I made it a priority. 

I stopped wishing and talking and made it happen for myself.

Ok. I use to have a corporate job & it was good but I was living paycheck to paycheck. I was barely making enough to pay my rent, bills, student loans, gas, life, etc etc. 

Then I started really researching people who quit their jobs and travel with no money. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it. So I was looking at how much I was making vs. how much I was spending.

You know I love food. Maybe a little too much. I was brunching' in style every weekend and hitting up sugar fish like it was life support. Also, I got ice coffees every single morning and eating out at lunch everyday. 

Food is life but I've never left the United States at this point and going to Paris was the only thing I wanted to do. So I cleaned house. I made my own coffee, packed my lunches, saved my ass off and bought my flight to Barcelona. 

It's crazy how anything is possible once you get out of that negative mind space. I remember always telling myself "I would never have enough for Paris/ I can't travel/ blah blah blah"

Once I got serious I did it. 

So if you're thinking of adventure know that you can do it. Don't let fear stop you from seeing the world. You can go anywhere your heart desires. I was on such a tight budget but I got to see the eiffel tower sparkle!!! Love yourself enough to do the things you want :)

if you could be anywhere in the world right now... where would you go? with who?

#2) food stickers so when you sleep they would wake you up for dinner :) THE BEST
