The Weekender, Good Bye Summer!




I cannot believe this is the last weekend in August!!! How did that happen? Labor Day Weekend is coming up and it’s the last (technical) hoorah of the summer. This summer has been such an amazing one and of course has gone by wayyyy too fast. It seems to always go fast but especially this summer. I have been fortunate enough to do a lot of traveling these past few months and it has been so amazing. I have experienced so many new things and took away memories that will last forever. There is one more trip coming up after NYFW so keep an eye on Instagram(@ilonashabovta) and Snapchat(ilona-shabovta). 🙂 Since Labor Day is coming up I am going to add links to make the last weeks of summer the best they can be wherever you are in the world. Check them all out below!

Also, I promise my travel guides are coming soon! I swear they take forever but I love doing them because so many others have helped me out a ton with all of my planning so I want to pay it forward and help you all out too. Let me know if you have any specific questions about traveling and I will answer them all very soon! Happy Weekend my friends!
