Hey guys! For my next travel guide, I decided on Los Angeles since, ya know, I live here. There’s so much to do and it was hard condensing this list down to 10 things. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that a lot of these things are pretty inexpensive, or better yet, completely free 🙂 Enjoy!

Grab a coffee at Menotti’s– even if you’re not a coffee lover, this cozy little place in Venice Beach is a go-to for Stevie and I. He always gets the Spanish Latte, and I love the hot chocolate 🙂

Stevie surprised me this past Monday with a two day getaway to Catalina Island for our one year anniversary. It was such a fun trip – I enjoyed waking up on both mornings and not having an agenda or crazy itinerary. Those trips are always my favorite. 🙂

This was a trip I never want forget, Stevie was so thoughtful in planning the entire getaway without me finding out! I hope you’ll check out the VLOG from my channel below if you haven’t already!

Growing up, I remember walking into the kitchen and seeing my mom cook breakfast in the cutest over-sized pajamas. I’ve always been a fan of the tomboy meets feminine PJs look. It’s nice to see that we don’t have to steal them from our man’s closet anymore – instead, we can find similar styles that are actually cute in the women’s department. Planning a getaway? There’s strategy behind the pajamas you wear on vacation. Keep reading..

This summer we’re going to have tons of houseguests, and we’re also planning to take a couple of relaxing trips ourselves. 😉 I try …

Sometimes I feel like my second home is on an airplane. I’ve already lost track of how many trips I’ve taken in 2016! Funny enough – I’m on a plane right now heading to Dallas for a few days so I felt inspired to share my travel uniform. When it comes to my airport style, comfort is always key. I never know how cold or hot it’s going to be on a plane so layering is a must!

Comfortable bottoms – I love wearing simple black leggings, stretchy skinny jeans or yoga pants when I travel. I always regret wearing …

Happy Monday everyone! I am so glad that I finally had some time this weekend to sit down and dive into editing my New Zealand Contiki trip. The Vlog just went up now on my Youtube Channel and I’m loving every minute of it. Have you seen it yet? It was hard narrowing down this video to 10 minutes because of all the amazing footage we shot during our trip. It was mine and Steve’s first time in New Zealand so we had to capture every moment. Duh! 😉 If you’re wondering about this specific tour and how we got …

My hubby and I just got back from a relaxing spring break vacation in Mexico! It was so good that a fun recap/review of our stay is a must. We stayed a week in the cutest luxury resort better known as Rancho Pescadero. The property is STUNNING. Picture the desert meeting the ocean. Breath-taking. It’s located near the small town of Todos Santos (about an hour north of Cabo). When we arrived I was immediately drawn to all of the beautiful Spanish-style decor. Every detail was so perfect. I knew off the bat that there were going to be …

Not sure if you’ve been following along on Insta, but if you have then you’ve probably seen me attempt to annihilate Stevie at paddle-ball on the beach, climb some big rocks, and stalk a family of deer at the park. This was all in good fun through a fun partnership I’ve been working on with Teva! The story I was chasing (literally) was to see how functional and stylish Teva shoes would be for a two-day adventure in Topanga/Malibu.

Stevie joined in on the fun (of course) and decided to put his own Teva sandals to the test as …
