Big Sur Weekend

This last weekend was my birthday, and a road trip to Big Sur was just what the doctor ordered. It's around 6 hours from Los Angeles, a totally doable day's drive. We stayed at The Post Ranch Inn for a weekend of relaxation, hiking, feasting, and breathtaking views!

Weekend Staycation

Back from the Thanksgiving mini break,  where I had a delicious and wonderful Thanksgiving with the fam as well as a little staycation at The Beverly Hills Hotel. The weather was truly perfect with temperatures around 80! Hence a lot of poolside lounging,  catching up on some reading with some eating and drinking thrown in.

Paris Part One

Paris Part 1! Allow me to feel sorry for myself for one minute as I spent hours writing up this post and then deleted it. How does that even happen now-a-days? But somehow I managed! Anyway without further delay, I carefully selected my favorite places and must-sees, including my not-so-secret spot for the world's best martini. While it is inevitable and necessary to go to some of the tourist and popular spots such as the Opera Garnier and Cafe de Flore, I also actively tried to seek out less known places where Parisians went. Let me know what you think and would love any future suggestions.

In Flight Routine

I'm on the road! Very happily I may add. I am traveling to NYC and Boston for a week and could not relish more in being back on the East Coast (where I am from!) I thought I would share my ultimate in flight routine for 3+ hour flights. I think it is nice to have a few luxuries while traveling including some beauty bits, cozy extras, and maybe a treat or two!

Canyon Cool

The thing about California is there is always somewhere new to explore. I had driven through Topanga Canyon before but never really stopped to see all it had to offer. Off the PCH, it is a 12 mile interpass between the ocean and San Fernando Valley. It served as a haven for artists and musicians in the 70's and still has that same funky, low key vibe.
