District Doughnut

District Doughnut is an amazing doughnut and coffee shop with five different locations in the DC area. I went with family to explore the monuments in DC and ended up at the wharf for some amazing clam chowder and a huge order of crabs for a family dinner that night! We stopped at District Doughnut for a little pick me up before heading home and I absolutely loved the house blend drip coffee!

This store offers gorgeous, gourmet doughnut with some classics and some seasonal flavours. I was tempted by the key lime doughnut but restrained myself since I knew we would be having a huge family dinner! My photos just didn’t do it justice so here are some great shots from their website! If you’re in DC, the wharf is amazing and should definitely be on your itinerary!

Savannah, Hilton Head & Charleston

Hey y'all! We just got back from an awesome trip down south where we exploring Savannah, relaxed in Hilton Head and discovered the history of Charleston. If you have not been down south, I'd highly recommend it. The food was amazing, the history was rich and the people are so friendly! We went during the off-season (August is so hot down here!) but made sure to book hotels with pools everywhere so we always had the option to relax in the water if we wanted to. Here are some of my favourite photos from our trip!

Second State Coffee

Second State Coffee is an awesome coffee shop in South Carolina with two locations - one in downtown Charleston and the other in Mount Pleasant. We biked from our hotel to downtown Charleston and were so happy to relax at the café for a while and cool off with our awesome cold coffees! A had an iced mocha latte and I had the black julep which was espresso, mint and honey shaken over ice. Both were absolutely delicious and we loved the minimalistic-chic vibe!

Travel Tip: Check out the awesome shops on King Street just a short walk away from here!

Carolina Coffee & Crumbs

Carolina Coffee & Crumbs is a cute coffee spot on Hilton Head Island located in Coligny Plaza! We took a little drive around the Island and were so happy to find this spot! I had the Aloha Latte - an espresso and milk with hints of coconut and vanilla and it was such a nice and sweet treat! I took a sip of A's iced coffee too which was really good. I'm so glad we got to enjoy the ambiance here and relax a bit before the storm!

Tandem Coffee and Spirits

Tandem is a gorgeous café and bar connected to the quaint East Bay Inn in Savannah, Georgia. We were lucky enough to have a complimentary coffee in the morning and a complimentary cocktail during happy hour! The staff were super nice and friendly and gave us great tips. The coffee was great and the perfect way to start our day!
