If You COuld Go Anywhere in the World –
Centrally located and brazen in design, citizenM Glasgow is charming and certainly not without its quirks, and within seconds of stepping into the bright red lobby, our stress and exhaustion started to dissolve as we stood there, taking in what could honestly only be described as an Alice in Wonderland-inspired interior designer’s play room.
Quaint city center streets filled with bars, restaurants, and shops housed inside quintessential Scandinavian architecture play host to millions of tourists every year, and the city, though packed, doesn’t feel crowded. At least, not yet. Just being in downtown Reykjavik on a cloudy, rainy morning, sitting in a warm coffee (kaffi in Iceland) shop eating bread with cheese and jam makes you feel, all at once, like you belonged here all your life.
For many, a drive around the Golden Circle is an all-day affair, visiting can’t-miss sights like waterfalls, geysers, and craters all before ending up back in Reykjavik, where many of the most traditional and easy-to-book hotels and Airbnbs can be found. But, for adventurous travelers looking for a more unusual, off-the-beaten-path, unforgettable experience while coasting along this Loop, that’s where this place comes in.
From figuring out where to strategically place your shampoo so it doesn’t burst open during the flight, to seeing just how many pairs of shoes you can realistically get away with bringing without exceeding the baggage weight restriction, packing your bag–or bags–for a trip is, in my opinion, the worst.

There aren’t many places in the world where I could tell you that you could get there in either as little as 3 hours or as many as 12. But, when the border between Mexico and the US is involved, all bets, these days, are off.
Last month, date night was spent eating Ethiopian food and ice cream cookie sandwiches in West LA. It was the boyfriend’s turn to surprise me, and I’ve never had a chance to try Ethiopian food before!
It was a beautiful, sun-filled Southern California day. It was Easter, and my boyfriend and I decided to celebrate our one-year anniversary wine tasting in Malibu.
Since it’s Thursday, here’s a little throwback for you guys. To the desert. Palm Springs, to be exact. After a weekend of bottomless mimosas, endless walking, soul-soothing music, and dry, dusty desert heat, I (somehow) survived. But man, was I exhausted.
Doesn't it always seem like the more you want to hold on to something, the quicker it disappears? That’s how it always feels when it comes to vacations… and food.
A few weeks ago, I got a new job!! As soon as I heard the news, I booked a quick trip to the islands to spend some time at home before starting my new gig.
