Vision Boards + Scotland + Your Chance To Win, Obviously!

In this weeks episode of Kristen, obviously! I’m giving you the rundown on my updated vision board.  Lately, I’ve really had the urge to travel and to get out and explore the world. I  added a few images to my board that encourage travel, new adventures and a few other things I deem important as I approach my 30th.

There was barely enough time for the glue to dry on my vision board when the good folks over at Hilton Hotels asked me to join them on a trip to Scotland! Scotland?!?!… Home of Gerard Butler, Sean Connery and Ewan McGregor and the Scottish Terrier?!?!? Scotland, the Summer home of Queen Elizabeth?!?!? Travel to a country whose National Animal is the unicorn??!?! Obviously yes! I’ve been to London before but never ventured to the Northern part of the United Kingdom. I’m in desperate need of a little Fall/ Winter DIY inspiration so the timing could not be better. And might I add, it’s the perfect way to celebrate my 30th!

I leave for Scotland this Thursday (on my actual birthday) and will spend the weekend taking in the signs and sounds of the Scottish capital of Edinburgh courtesy of Hilton HHonors.. whoop, whoop HBD to me!

Hilton is really pulling out all the stops this Summer in honor of their Hilton HHonors program. They’ve launched a the Great Getaway Giveaway campaign, offering members the chance to win a vacation now through August 4. THAT MEANS YOU!

Click here to vote for your favorite destination in the Food & Wine category (obviously I’m partial to New Orleans), enter your email address and press the “enter now” button. A winner will be chosen in August for a trip to the city that received the most votes! Fingers crossed it’s you xx xx

Please excuse our regularly scheduled DIY programming as I take this opportunity to explore life and turn 30 in the most fab way possible! You can follow my Eat, Pray, Love sequel via Instagram (here). I plan on taking you guys along with me on this adventure. I promise to take lots of photos and to come back with some inspiration for some fab Fall #DIY projects. I’m already seeing a lot of red plaid in my future a la McQueen’s Scottish collection!
