I’ve been craving an Ojai getaway for a while now. It’s been too long since my last viz to this magical California town, so I drove up recently for a lil overnight solo trip. Only 90 minutes northwest of Los Angeles but so different in terms of vibe - slower paced with a beautiful artistic small town feel. I always feel relaxed and happy in Ojai and it’s also the perf getaway destination for solo travelers, which I can’t recommend enough! When you take a trip by yourself you get to do, see, and eat whatever you want, whenever you want. I’ve found that I have more conversations with the locals when I’m by myself, and I just love exploring a town at my own pace. I observe more and learn more, about the town and about myself. My last solo trip was in the beginning of the year to Los Alamos, so I have definitely been overdue. When Eddie told me he’d have to work the weekend I had planned, I knew this would be the perf opportunity!Read More
Laguna Beach has been a favorite escape of mine and Eddie’s when we’re in the mood for some relaxation and fresh ocean air. Which is pretty much all time, let’s be honest! Beautiful beaches, gorge boutiques, yummy cafes, and only an hour away from our house in Los Angeles makes it an easy breezy lil getaway. We had the pleasure of staying at Laguna Beach House for the first time and it was such a delight. Sharing some highlights from our trip!Read More
Thank you to Terranea Resort for hosting my stay. All opinions are my own - as always!
Tucked away above coastal bluffs on the Palos Verdes Peninsula you’ll find one of Los Angeles’s hidden gems - the stunning Terranea Resort. Eddie and I had the pleasure of a lil staycation weekend at this slice of heaven, and we fell in love hard. From the drool-worthy restaurants, the beautiful landscaping, and oh those ocean views - we felt so lucky to be able to experience such a magical place together. Sharing my photo diary of our stay below!Read More
My first real trip to Mexico, and it was magic. I’ve been wanting to visit Cabo for years - beautiful weather, stunning beaches, and gorge resorts? Sign. me. up. So when the Hacienda Encantada Resort & Spa invited me to come stay, I pinched myself a few hundred times and then immediately jumped at the chance.Read More
I’ve been to Santa Barbara a handful of times, but only for day trips and never overnight! It’s such a beautiful city, only 2 hours up the coast from Los Angeles and so much fun to explore. Eddie and I decided to make it a weekend getaway this time, taking it slow instead of trying to pack in as much as possible in one day. Since we’ve been here before, we didn’t feel the need to revisit the usual tourist attractions, and instead spent a lot of time relaxing at our beautiful hotel, going on bike rides, and taking the most gorge walk around the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.Read More
Eddie turned the big 3-0 a few weeks ago and I wanted to take him on a road trip to celebrate! We’ve never explored Nevada outside of Las Vegas, so we decided a getaway to Death Valley would be new and fun. Filled with ghost towns, saloons, sand dunes, and more, we headed out for a weekend of desert exploration. Sharing where we stayed and what we saw!Read More
Thank you to The Wigwam for hosting my stay. All opinions are my own - as always!
I finally made it to Arizona for the first time ever! I’ve been craving a getaway to this cactus-filled wonderland, and now I can finally check it off my bucket list. My stay at The Wigwam was an absolute dream, filled with yummy food & drinks, new experiences, and total relaxation. The property is celebrating the 90th Anniversary of its guest ranch, and it was such a pleasure to learn the history of this Arizona treasure. Located in the town of Litchfield Park just 20 miles outside of Phoenix, the weather was absolutely perfect during my stay and the citrus scent of the orange trees that cover the grounds was amazing aromatherapy. I want to share with you some of my fave parts of the trip, as well as photos of the beautiful resort - I honestly was in heaven, as I’m sure you could imagine!Read More
When my dear friend Lindsay Hollinger of Casa Joshua Tree told me she had bought a second house to turn into a full time Airbnb, I knew we were in for some interior magic y’all. Together with her bff and business partner James Burial, they renovated and transformed this 1,200 square foot 3 bedroom home into the ultimate desert retreat, fondly named #ThatDesertHouse. Lindsay and James spent 6 months on renovations and did most of the work themselves - all the time, energy, and love they put into the space really shows.Read More
