Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 38

Happy Friday, you guys! This was my first *full* week in Lima (I arrived on Tuesday 9/4 and last week, we were in Cusco Wednesday-Sunday) and it’s felt so nice to get settled in a little bit. This week absolutely flew by, though. I can’t really believe how much I’ve done in the last three-ish weeks that I’ve been here… Seeing Machu Picchu was definitely a highlight! And can’t believe I move to Colombia next weekend! Time feels like it’s moving faster than ever and I’m trying to savor every second of this wild ride.

Here’s what’s had my attention this week…

Spicy Watermelon Margarita Recipe

I shared this Spicy Watermelon Margarita recipe on my Instagram stories over Labor Day Weekend and figured it was probably worth sharing on the blog, too! It’s super easy to make and my friend, Kate, and I loved them. (And I’d say we are both self-proclaimed spicy cocktail connoisseurs.)

Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 37

Friday Finds is finally back! I don’t know about you guys*, but these are usually my favorite posts each week. It’s fun to share my favorite things and connect about all sorts of topics that we don’t always get to, and it’s also fun to play cheerleader for some of my friends and fellow bloggers that are doing awesome things that deserve a share! (*Well, that’s actually a lie, I do know about you guys and know that you feel the same about these posts being some of your favorites. #NumbersDontLie)

Happy Friday, my friends! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. xoxo JRS

Nothing But Neutral

I’ll get into more of what I packed for South America soon, but my suitcase contains nothing but neutrals. (Hey, they’re the easiest to mix and match!) But even if you’re not living out of a single suitcase, a monochromatic outfit of creamy neutrals always looks chic. Especially after Labor Day!

What is Remote Year?

If you’ve missed my big news in my newsletter or on Instagram, I flew out earlier this week for the longest trip I’ve ever gone on! I landed in Lima, Peru late on Tuesday night and will be living and working throughout Latin America for the next four months with a company called Remote Year. (!!) I’ll be staying in Lima for the rest of September, spending October in Medellin, Colombia, November in Bogota, Colombia, and December in Mexico City, Mexico. I’ve gotten countless questions from friends, family, and readers/followers alike, so I wanted to put together a big Q&A post to have everything in one spot. I opened it up on Instagram with a question box, so here’s mostly everything I’ve been asked so far. If I missed anything, let me know in the comments below! xoxo JRS
