The Best Google Chrome Extensions

I decided to finally bite the bullet and purchased a new MacBook Pro over tax free weekend. It’s nice to have the mobility of a laptop again. (And the comfort… it’s so much better to write this on my couch than at my desk!) One of the first things I did when I started up my new MacBook was to install Google Chrome. It’s the best web browser. Sorry, Safari. After I installed Google Chrome, I started browsing all of the Google Chrome Extensions.

The Wander Guide - A Travel and Lifestyle Blog

I’m over the moon to announce my new lifestyle blog, The Wander Guide!

I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for months, so that is how The Wander Guide was born. I keep a notebook in my purse to write down ideas and have been throwing around names for my blog but I never really liked anything. Finally, today, I decided to stop waiting around and just do it already! I think it is a fitting name to describe how I view travel, and life, and experiences. I’m a planner at my core but have recently been more spontaneous, which has definitely been a good change of pace.

So, what will I write about?
