AN AFTERNOON IN FOLEY

Usually, when we go on spring break, we arrive on Saturday and spend about a week at the beach and exploring one of my family’s favorite places. This year, though, we decided we needed more time soaking in the sun and opted to leave for vacay late Wednesday afternoon. So, with the two extra days we gained, we decided to explore the city of Foley, AL, which is just about 20 minutes from Orange Beach.

The first place we had to scope out was The Drowsy Poet. After meeting the owner, we soon found out that he’s actually a hoosier native, too. (what a coinkadink!) He had just opened the business about two months prior to us coming there, which you couldn’t notice at all from how established it looked. This place basically meets every Instagrammer’s aesthetic needs. I mean, it was built from an old gas station so anywhere is a shootable location. All their drinks were named after old poets or poems, too, which makes it like ten times better.

After walking around a little bit, we walked into a huge two-story antique shop. My mom and I love to just window shop and look at all the trinkets, so we spent almost an hour just looking around.

There was just so much beautiful historic architecture in this quaint little town that made me fall completely in love with it. Every corner you turned, there was a wall full of vines or a group of just-bloomed flowers. Basically, if you ever find yourself in southern Alabama and want a little getaway from reality, I would highly recommend visiting Foley.

SPRING BREAK TRAVEL DIARY

If you look on my youtube channel, I posted a video about 2 years ago, which was my friend and I on spring break. Majority of the video was me just recording my friend doing funny things, otherwise known as embarrassing her to the public haha. After a couple years of actually receiving a professional camera and learning actual camera angles, I decided to try out another spring break video, and I can successfully say that I have upgraded my editing and video resolution so much since that last video! Check it out below if you haven’t already!!!

EXPLORING SMALL TOWN, USA

About a month ago, my family and a couple friends went exploring in our mini van and ended up at this hole in the wall located just near Taylor University! Not only was the aesthetic absolutely perfect; the espresso tasted amazing as well! Ever since I got my Kendra Scott necklace for Christmas, it has been a go-to accessory for all of my outfits! And, as you can see, I’m also pretty obsessed with Alex and Ani bracelets. They add such a nice and simple touch to any outfit!
