If You COuld Go Anywhere in the World –
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. What’s even worse, though? Jetting off to somewhere cold, and making sure you’re bringing everything you need to stay warm.
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.
We try to go somewhere every few months, and we were due for another trip. I desperately wanted to see some snow before the winter season ended, so when he mentioned taking a last-minute camping trip in Yosemite, I was all for it.
It’s so easy to always try to seek out what’s new or ‘hip’ when you live in the city. A new restaurant, a new food craze, a new Nasty Gal store opening.... Being a California transplant myself, I’m super guilty of spending every other weekend in pursuit of something new and exciting.
I’m a big fan of day and weekend road trips to new places in California that I’ve never seen before, so I thought what better way to kick off the Christmas spirit early than with a day trip to one of the most Christmassy towns in the country (that happens to be less than 3 hours away)?
