Travel With Me: Laguna Beach

You know how much I love Southern California! Any excuse I get to head South to get some sun, put my toes in the ocean, and soak up the green-juice loving community, I’ll take! In today’s post I’m sharing travel photos from a recent trip to Laguna Beach to visit friends! The weekend was full of laughs, trolly rides and being a little stressed out from how many times the life guards were rescuing swimmers.

Travel With Me: Joshua Tree

There's something about the desert. I grew up going to Eastern Washington every summer where my affinity for the desert started. The warmth of the sun hitting you, the beautiful desert foliage that looks like you're on Mars, and the peacefulness of being able to see far into the distance. This is why I love traveling to the Southwest, so when I found out we'd be visiting  Joshua Tree National Park during a weekend trip to Palm Springs (read all about the trip here!), I couldn't wait!

Travel With Me: 10 Days in New York

New York has so much to explore! There's amazing things to do at all hours of the day, which means you can do so much, but also feel like there's still so much left to see. My boyfriend and I headed to the Big Apple for 10 days where we ate, drank, and laughed our way through the city. Here I've laid out what we did, where we ate, and what rooftop bars were our favorites! This is a long post, but if you're planning a trip to New York, scroll through to find the highlights that look the most fun to you!

Travel With Me: Houseboating

Each August, my boyfriend Brian's family heads to Eastern Washington to go houseboating for a week at Lake Roosevelt! It's a week filled with water sports, great company and probably a bit too much snacking! But that's what vacation is for - right?

Here is a photo diary of the trip, scroll through and at the end you'll find some additional details about houseboating trips if you're planning one!

Coachella 2017

I had the most amazing time dancing, singing, playing dress up and hanging out with great friends at Coachella this year! Four of us flew into LAX on Thursday morning where we rented a convertible through Turo. We met up with friends for lunch in Marina del Rey before hitting the road to Palm Springs!

We rented an AirBnB in Palm Springs which had a beautiful pool and interior. All of my logistics recommendations for Coachella can be found in my Coachella Guide. The first necessary stop in town was In-n-Out, followed by Costco so we could stock up on breakfast & lunch food and of course beer!

Your All-In-One Coachella Guide

It's almost here! Coachella is a 3-day music and arts festival that takes place in Indio, CA for two consecutive weekends each year. Known for it's trendy outfits, A-list attendees and headliner music, Coachella is the place to see and be seen every spring. With as glamorous and so very "LA" as Coachella seems, when I first went two years ago, I was pleasantly surprised by the normalcy of event and camaraderie between everyone there for the simple reason that everyone's there to have a great time!

Travel With Me: Berlin

On Friday I got back from a week in Berlin! My cousin Devin and I went to visit our other cousin, Nolan who has been living in Germany for the past few years. It was honestly a random trip for us - last Black Friday, Delta Airlines was having a huge sale so we ended up getting round-trip flights for $480! Can't beat that! Within the day, our flights were booked! Our spur of the moment idea finally arrived, and we were able to visit him!

In this post I'm going to share a breakdown of our week - what we did and where we ate, drank and shopped. Since we of course couldn't fit everything in Berlin in just a week, I'll be compiling resources and other recommendations in another post coming soon!

Travel With Me: Weekend in Vancouver, BC

Cheers! Last week was Brian's birthday, so for his gift, I wanted to get him an experience instead of a thing. It's our other friend Sydney's birthday in a few weeks, so her boyfriend and I surprised her and Brian with a weekend trip to Vancouver! 

As you read about in my New Year's trip to Vancouver, I love popping up to Vancouver since it's such a close way to explore! We took a half day on Friday, loaded the car with snacks, and drove up to the boarder! Brian and Sydney were guessing the whole way about where we were headed, until we got to the boarder guard when the secret was finally revealed.

Travel With Me: Isla Mujeres

Brian and I grabbed an Uber from my work on a rainy Friday to head to SeaTac. We were off for an extended weekend on Isla Mujeres, which is a 5-mile long island off of the coast from Cancun, Mexico.  We had only booked the trip a few weeks before, after two of my friends had come over for dinner, which turned into making vacation plans! We were graciously able to stay with them, so Brian and I jumped on the opportunity for a tropical getaway!

Unlike staying in Cancun, which can be touristy, Isla is a lot slower paced. We stayed in my friend’s house, making it low barrier to entry as far as vacations go. There are still quite a few tourists on the island, but most are there for the day, and my friend’s place is on the opposite end of the island from the ferry and main beach, so it can feel remote at her place.
