What up friends. Wow, what a weekend it’s been already. It has already involved brunching, heading down to Santa Monica for some sunny pier action and watching the sunset over LA at the Griffith Observatory before hitting up Little Tokyo for cocktails. Today we’re off on a Sunday drive to visit a friend who lives outside of LA but what I’m really mostly excited for is the fact that TOMORROW WE FLY TO NYC! Eeek! This is a city that has sat so high up on my bucket list pretty much for as long as I know that my bucket list has existed. I’ve never been before so if you have any wonderful tips, I would love them! Thank you to everyone who has tweeted me already. Big love. Be sure to follow along on Instagram for all the highlights and Snapchat for the daily mess (deptofwandering).


Here are this week’s favourite links:

WATCH: The beautiful, rugged landscapes of America have already left such a strong mark on me and this video makes me want to travel even further afield to see more and more.

READ: I had to giggle at these 15 unique illnesses you can only come down with in German.

EAT: This is both weird and so cool at the same time.

MAKE: This is so much fun, especially for big kids like me.

BUY: I saw this bag last week and knew I had to have it for Mexico. How perfect!

GO: After last weekend’s unforgettable weekend in the wild, I am now keener than ever to see more of the West Coast’s rugged beauty.
