A little travel, life and fashion Q&A. I want to answer them ALL.
What are the best and worst parts about having a blog?
There are SO many great things that come with having a blog. For one, I get to own a creative space on the Internet. This has been so crucial for me personally. Another amazing thing that comes with this blog is the group of inspirational women I’ve “met” and know in real life. I’ve also been floored by the support and love I get from readers who don’t have blogs. And then, of course, it’s really awesome to be able to work with brands that I’ve loved and even new-to-me brands that I want to share with everyone! On the other hand, there are some “worsts” of blogging. There are definitely people who don’t have good intentions. But I try my best to block those people out and focus on MY brand, MY business, and MY content.
Thoughts on Instastories vs. Snapchat?
If you would have asked this a few months ago, I would have said Snapchat was better and I’d never be on board with IG Stories. But, things change. I’m now pretty much only using IG Stories because I realized the potential reach is so much highly than Snapchat. My followers also engage SO much more on IG Stories, and I LOVE that.
PS: Are you signed up for The Weekend Toast? I’ve loved writing all my life, so this new exclusive content is a great opportunity to expand Pink Champagne Problems…and for you to get to know me on another level. I would LOVE for you to subscribe! (Don’t worry, I will never spam your inbox!) A little preview: I talk about everything from my job to time management, and so much more! Oh, and I always find something to toast to!

Here’s what I’m loving, buying and eyeing!
If you frequently read blogs, you’ve probably heard about the Shopbop sale. I don’t particularly like doing full-blown posts about this sale, but I definitely wanted to share some great finds – including some pieces I own that are in the sale!

Weekend plans, anyone?
Since it’s Easter weekend, I’m heading to Westchester to spend time with Matt’s family and my family. Matt is playing photographer this weekend, so I’m excited to go explore with him and find some great locations to shoot at!
After Sunday day festivities are over, I’m going to be prepping for one of the biggest projects on Pink Champagne Problems to date. I’m seriously SO excited and cannot wait to share more with you! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! (That’s honestly how I feel!)

Ah, the jet set life…where to next?
I mentioned my upcoming travels in this post, and now I think I have another to add to the list: Nashville! I’m turning 25 in July, and I want to throw a big birthday bash somewhere fun. I’ve never been to Nashville, and it seems SO fun. I’m trying to convince my best friends to come – Matt obviously has no choice.
If anyone has any Nashville recommendations and/or guides, let me know! I’d love to keep planning my trip!

Werkin’ on my fitness. Talking about new classes, small victories, etc.!
This doesn’t have much to do with actual classes, BUT I recently found out that my insurance will reimburse part of my Equinox membership if I go a certain amount of times during the year! UM WHAT?! I had no idea! I wanted to tell you this in case you have a membership to a gym – I’m sure more major insurances have programs like it! Let’s get rewarded for being healthy!
