Hello loves my names Heather. I’m a sassy college girl who loves fashion, traveling, trying new foods and my dog Bella Louise. Yes, I’m a dog mom and proud of it. I’m infatuated and drawn to new experiences, everyones life story and determined to make a difference one day. I think when we leave our comfort zone we see the world is a lot bigger than what we thought. I want to leave a footprint and take a memory on my travels. I hope to bring back my experiences, lessons and stories to hopefully inspire others to take action and explore the world around them. This world has a lot more to offer than what meets the eye. Being 21 years old, my adventures have only just begun and I will continue sharing my journey for you are never done growing.

“It is in all of us to defy expectations, to go into the world
and to be brave, and to want, to need, to hunger for adventures.
To embrace the chance and risk so that we may breathe and
know what it is to be free.” – Mae Chevrette. 

Now that you understand a short snippet about me, I bet you’re wondering why I created “The Wanderlust Life” in the first place? Well let me just tell you right now babe. If the name “Wanderlust Life”  wasn’t clear enough I have a strong passion and crave for traveling not just beyond borders, but within every city I visit. Trying new things, experiencing a brand new place and embracing another culture is fascinating to me. I studied abroad in Italy for four weeks and traveled around London for one week in June 2016. My attitude, life and comfort zone was changed forever from this experience and I knew I had to tell the world. I learned so much about myself, others, made lasting friendships and managed to get stranded on an island and was not panicked.

Does this mean I’ve made it in life? You tell me! I plan on telling you all about my Italian experience and love for the UK throughout my blog, but we all know the college budget doesn’t allow for weekend getaways to Capri or Venice. Unless yours does then please tell me what bank you have been robbing! Just kidding… nobody ever rob a bank! Prison attire sounds disgusting. I’m a senior at the University of Oklahoma studying Public Relations so engaging with people, brands and increasing ones brand awareness is apart of my everyday life. BAM!! There was my idea for my blog. There you have it, my blog is more than just my travels. It’s my whole life! Why limit it to one thing? As an avid adventurer I want to tell people about all of my experiences whether that be the new metallic lip product I found or new coffee shop in Deep Ellum. Traveling is and will alway be my first love, but lets take a look at everything else I’m obsessing over these days. Follow along and experience my life journey with me in “The Wanderlust Life!”
