Happy Friday, gals! So sorry I’m been MIA on the blog this week. I love traveling but MAN it takes me like a full week to recover haha. Hope your week has been amazing and whoohoo it’s the weekend! So y’all know I was in New Orleans, Louisiana last weekend with some blog friends. It was a 2-day trip and we had so much fun! I wanted to put together and share our itinerary with y’all. Also, check out myNOLA guide I did a couple years ago when Josh & I visited.

Thursday:

  • 3:30pm: Flight landed!!
  • 4:30pm: A couple of the girls and I all got in around the same time and we were so hungry so we drove over the the Garden District area and ate at Dat dog. It was so good! I ended up getting chicken strips because I had hot dogs the night before but they’re known for their amazing dogs haha.
  • 5-6pm: Check into place. We stayed with Stay Alfred all weekend and I was AMAZED at their property. It’s like an airbnb I guess but so amazing. It’s basically an apartment building that they’ve turned into a hotel almost. Except the rooms are big, have a ton of space, and you get a full kitchen! Four of the girls were on the second floor in this beautiful 2 bedroom place and Bailey and I had the only room on the top floor it was incredible and beyond spacious! I will for sure be staying in Stay Alfred properties again.
  • 9pm: Dinner at Johnny Sanchez. This was close to where we were staying and I loved my meal here. The vibe of this restaurant was so fun and the food was amazing. I got their house margarita, the cauliflower taco and steak taco. SO GOOD!!!

Friday:

On Friday morning we all slept and got ready until about 10:30am. We walked over to the Ruby Slipper for brunch and put our name down while we walked around, and headed to the mall haha.

  • 12:30pm: Brunch at The Ruby Slipper. We talked and chatted for hours I’m pretty sure and had the most amazing brunch here. I got this tex-mex scramble and their cinnamon pancakes. Plus a mimosa, always hah! Highly recommend and they have multiple locations in all the different areas/neighborhoods in Nola.
  • 2:30pm-5pm: We drove around the Garden district, took photos, walked magazine street, window shopped, all the things haha! Walking magazine street is such a blast and so many cute places to stop into.
  • 5pm: Happy hour at the Carousel bar. Kelsie took us to this bar and it was so fun! Also jam packed!! I got a Pimms Cup for my drink and it was delish.
  • 9pm: Dinner at Jack Rose. So I didn’t realize this until we left but this is the amazing restaurant inside The Pontchartrain hotel. That’s where Josh and I stayed when we visited and it was amazing. Jack Rose is very well known and probably one of the coolest, aesthetically-pleasing restaurants. They also have this pink couch and gallery wall with a painting of Lil Wayne hahah. This is a must when visiting! If you visit, you also gotta go up to the rooftop bar at the hotel and grab a drink. The views, vibe, and everything about it are amazing. It was Josh and I’s favorite thing to do each night.
  • 11pm: Nightlife on Bourbon street. We had to do Bourbon at least once! It’s always such a show and very interesting haha. We popped into the Beach on Bourbon bar and just walked to the end. It was PLENTY for me lol!

Saturday:

  • 10:30am: Brunch at Cafe Beignet. So if it’s your first time, you MUST do Cafe Du Monde. We had a brand lunch afterwards and didn’t want to wait in the line so we did Cafe Beignet which I also love so much.
  • 12pm: Meeting and Styling with Hemline Nola and then lunch with them at Meauxbar. This was so fun and I got to meet a bunch of girls! We all picked out an outfit, took photos, looked around the store, and then headed for a fun lunch to celebrate their birthday.
  • Afternoon: Naps/ relaxing. We were SO exhausted I had to take a nap haha. It was also storming so it worked out perfectly.
  • 5pm: Magazine street for shooting. A few of the girls and I needed more pictures so we headed back to Magazine Street to work a little, snap some pics, and grab some Starbucks.
  • 9pm: Dinner at Josephine Estelle. Such a gorgeous restaurant with very fabulous and unique meals. It’s more on the italian side so lots of pasta dishes, and steak!
