The Most Instagramable Shops in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

The Most Instagramable Shops in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Just got back from a short trip to New York for a friend's wedding! Every time I visit my hometown in the Hudson Valley, I try to also visit NYC as it's only an hour and a half drive. Brooklyn is my fave place in the city, so much charm and magic. I just love the vibe and how everything is so walkable - I walked from my Airbnb to each of these shops in just a few hours. Even though I froze my butt off, it was actually v nice to be able to leave the house without having to jump in a car to get to where I needed to go.

Exploring Borrego Springs

Exploring Borrego Springs

Up until last month, I had never even heard of Borrego Springs. I was chatting with a friend about how I wanted to go on a lil getaway to a California city I'd never been before, when he mentioned this darling desert town. Just a 3 hour drive from LA and surrounded by the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, it was just the change of scenery Eddie and I were looking for. With a population of under 4,000 people, this small town has no big chains and is California's first Dark Sky Communitywhich means it's dedicated to protecting the night sky from light pollution. Star gazer heaven! While we did a lot of relaxing at our amazing hotel, we also ventured out to explore our surroundings. Come take a look at some of our adventures!

Salvation Mountain

Salvation Mountain

I finally made it to this folk art masterpiece! Leonard Knight's Salvation Mountain has been on my must-viz list for a while now, ever since I first saw photos of it on Instagram. An explosion of color in the middle of the dez, it really is a sight to see.  Located just east of the Salton Sea and about a 3 and a half hour drive from Los Angeles, it's a trek to get to this little piece of magic - but a great spot to check out when visiting Palm Springs, as it's only about an hour and a half drive from there.

Borrego Springs: Where To Stay

Borrego Springs: Where To Stay

Eddie and I started a tradition last year of going on a lil Christmas getaway to a California city we'd never been to before. We stayed in a darling Airstream in Temecula last year, and this year we decided to check out the beautiful desert town of Borrego Springs, located in the northeast area of San Diego county. As much as I love LA, it's always so refreshing to get out of the big city and take a few days to relax and recharge - and Borrego Springs is really the perf place to do just that. Surrounded by Anza-Borrego Desert State Parkand being California's first Dark Sky Community, you won't find any big chains in this charming small town. I wanted to share our experience staying at the Borrego Valley Inn with you, and spoiler alert - it was wonderful. Keep scrolling for lots of pics from our stay!

Traveling Back in Time With Netflix's "Godless"

Traveling Back in Time With Netflix's "Godless"

I got to go on a lil adventure last week with Netflix! Their new show Godless is about a town in the American West circa 1880 that is made up of almost entirely women. I was lucky enough to go on a mini road trip to Paramount Ranch where I experienced what life was like for those women. How cool is that?! The day's hashtag was #TheFrontierIsFemale, so you know is was filled with bad ass women shooting guns and slinging whiskey. Yee haw!

Casa Joshua Tree

Casa Joshua Tree

One of the reasons I love the Instagram community so much is it gives you the opportunity to meet some of the most amazing, talented people. Lindsay Hollinger is one of them! We met on the app a while back and I'm so happy to now call her a friend. As an artist and designer living in Joshua Tree, Lindsay has transformed her home into a dreamy desert paradise - it's literally swoon worthy. Eddie and I had the pleasure of visiting Lindsay at her Casa Joshua Tree during our JT trip for a little happy hour out on her recently re-designed, ridiculously beautiful patio. Wine, snacks, and lots of laughs made for such a fun time, and Lindsay was nice enough to let me snap a bunch of pics of her gorge space. Keep scrolling to see all the magic.

Desert Vibes in Joshua Tree

Desert Vibes in Joshua Tree

Eddie and I took a long overdue trip to the desert last week to relax, recharge, and celebrate our 6 year anniversary (where does the time go?!). We'd been to Joshua Tree a few years ago to camp with friends, but it was only for a night and we definitely didn't experience it fully. I've been wanting to return to really explore the town ever since then, and I'm so glad we finally were able to. With JT only being around a 2 and half hour drive from Los Angeles, it really is the perf place to escape to when you need a breather from LA life. Come take a little tour with me of where we stayed and what we did while we were in this desert paradise.
