‘Pine’-ing for Bali 🍍🍍🍍 ____________________________________________________ I spent 10 days in Bali this summer - and totally fell in love with this beautiful island! 🌴🌱🐒🌺🥥 I realized that I've been sharing photos from my travels for a while now but I haven't properly introduced myself! 🤗 Here are a few fun facts: 1) I'm Laura (or 'Laura Rose,' my middle name!) which is good context for my blog’s name, The Republic of Rose 🌹 2) I just moved to Laguna Beach from LA and love living in California because ☀️🌴🌊 3) I have an obsession with Italian food 🍝🍕🍷🍦 Oh and matcha 🍵 All things matcha flavored! My dream is to one day go to Japan and drink / eat matcha at every meal. 4) Most of the time you'll find me in a bright, floral dress 🌺🌸🌼 (see above ☝🏻) 5) I love puppies and really all animals, even the weird ones (I begged my mom for a pet rat when I was younger!) 🐀😂 What are some of your fun facts? Can anyone relate?! ____________________________________________________ #thetravelwomen #youthgoals #traveleroftheweek #worlderlust #blondesandcookies #dametraveler #darlingescapes #yourpassport #girlswhoexplore
‘Fall’-ing in love with New York 🍁🍂 ____________________________________________________ While I love living in California, I sometimes find myself missing the autumn leaves and crisp air during the colder months in #NYC 🌆 And somehow it doesn’t feel right drinking a pumpkin spice latte when it’s 70 and sunny? 😂🌴 ____________________________________________________ #wherelifeisgreat #letsflyawayto #youthgoals #newyork
Getting lost in the desert 🌵 ____________________________________________________ A few months ago, i did a road trip across the USA 🇺🇸 and one of my favorite stops was Arches National Park in #Moab ❤️ After spending a few months abroad, i loved being able to explore so many new places so close to home! And i visited a few states for the first time: South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah! Have you ever road tripped across the USA? What was your favorite place? 🚙💨

Until next time, New Orleans 💙 ____________________________________________________ Last week, I got to spend time exploring one of my favorite cities with friends and attending #VoodooFest for the first time. We ate beignets in the French Quarter, shopped on Magazine Street, listened to jazz on Frenchmen, filled our tummies with creole food and had a blast at the festival 🎶 Couldn’t have asked for a better week... now I’m looking forward to a few days at home in California before heading off to somewhere cold! ❄️ Have you visited #NewOrleans before - if so, what was your favorite thing you did?!
