Trip to Puerto Vallarta

I recently wrote an article about how to plan a spur-of-the-moment trip, which was based on preparing for my trip to Puerto Vallarta. I spent 9 days in Mexico, so you as you can imagine, I did and saw a lot of amazing things. I had so many trip-of-a-lifetime experiences, from dining on a deserted island, to exploring a brightly colored beach town, to tasting amazing cuisine–every second of this trip was a memorable one. I wondered how I would be able to include everything in one blog post so I decided to write about my trip highlights along with some history of this amazingRead More →

summer beach essentials

Whether I’m headed to a local beach here in Los Angeles County, or preparing for an exotic vacation somewhere far away, my summer beach essentials help me to have the perfect day. I recently vacationed in Puerto Vallarta, and before I left I started to think about what I would need. Being a lover of street style, this cover up was the first item on my list. The mesh material helped to keep me cool in the hot and humid 90+ degree days. I love wearing white in the summer as it shows off my tan. I then worked the rest of my outfit aroundRead More →

trip to mexico

A few weeks ago my parents invited me to go with them on a trip to Mexico. We would be staying in Puerto Vallarta for 9 days at an all inclusive resort. As you can imagine there was no hesitation on my part to say YES! We would be leaving two weeks later, so I had a short time to plan accordingly. With most vacations you have plenty of time to plan and research and other times an opportunity arises and you need to get the ball rolling fast. As Soon As You Say Yes Passport Ready I believe everyone should have a passport. YouRead More →

my trip abroad

For my birthday this year, I decided to take a trip to Europe on a much-needed vacation, to learn new things about other places, and some new things about myself. With plenty of coats packed, a new book for my flight, and two of my closest friends by my side, I was ready to begin another year of my life on a trip filled with new experiences. For my trip abroad I would be traveling to London, Paris and Copenhagen. Three beautiful, vibrant cities that are very cold this time of year. Aside from the chill, each city had its own appeal that kept meRead More →

Most Exciting Places to Travel

The term “work hard, play hard” is a way of life here in Los Angeles. It’s no wonder we can’t wait to break into our vacation time and have a much-needed change of scenery. Traveling is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Whether traveling alone or with others, it is wonderful to experience new cultures and learn new things about yourself along the way. Traveling pushes us to step outside of our comfort zone and explore unfamiliar worlds that we may only experience once in our lifetime. Deciding where to go can be difficult since you want your trip to beRead More →

spending a day in long beach

No matter where you live in Los Angeles, everyone can use a little adventure in their life. I’m going to show you how spending a day in Long Beach is the optimum staycation. One of the beauties about living in LA is being able to explore so many different parts of the city and all it has to offer. Long Beach is a city right outside of LA, still within the Los Angeles County lines. I’m lucky enough to call this sweet beach town my home, and every day I find something more that I love about it. Whether it’s enjoying a coffee at oneRead More →

The holidays in New York City

Being from the east coast, I can’t imagine not spending the holidays in New York City. Los Angeles is great around Christmas time and for those of us that grew up surrounded by snow, it’s really hard to adapt when it’s sunny and 65 degrees outside. Last year my boyfriend and I started the tradition of going into the city a few days before my birthday (December 23rd), and then meeting up with my family for Christmas Eve dinner. For those of you that haven’t been to New York in December, I highly recommend that you put it on your list of things to do.Read More →
