Just because I visited Northern California for a good three weeks doesn't mean the party don't stop! As Part Two of my 25th birthday celebration, I hosted a second birthday party at my favorite Ketsourine Macarons with bloggers, photographers, and good company to reunite with my hometown friends for the limited amount of time that I'm staying in the Bay Area.
Is it just me or is vacation planning stressful sometimes? After experiencing a few stressful vacations in the past due to improper planning, I went ahead to compile a few useful tips to make my next getaway even better.

If you're ever planning a vacation with your friends, family, or solo, here are a few top travel tips I would recommend to ensure that your next vacation will be a memorable and stress-free experience.
You know it's a funny story when you drive to the mall just for a photoshoot (with no interest in shopping whatsoever). Before I started Missmisschelle, I used to be an obsessed shopaholic who would visit the mall weekly to check up on my favorites stores at the time (Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Brandy Melville, PacSun, etc.). As soon as my Instagram took off, I never realized just HOW many brands were out there and it made me more curious to see what other fashion styles were out there besides what I found at my local mall. With Missmisschelle, I eventually grew to love online shopping way more than driving to the mall because the variety never ends online. Plus, you don't have to deal with those ridiculous long-ass lines and messy sale racks. If you're getting tired of seeing the same ol' patterns or pieces at your nearby mall, I would highly recommend shopping online. In this blog post, I've listed a few of my favorite stores to shop at and several personalized discount codes that I have for you guys to various stores that I have collaborated with in the past.
