Fall Travel Accessories – Jord Wood Watch

I recently received this beautiful little timepiece from Jord Watches in the mail and had to share, it’s just so pretty! This is the Frankie Ebony and Gold and it pairs beautifully with other dark and gold accessories. I’ll start by saying that I’ve never been a huge watch person. In the past I’ve gravitated more towards bracelets and rings instead of a watch. However, now that I’m traveling a bit more, I’ve found the need…

Airbnb In the Malibu Canyon

For my girls trip to Malibu back in June, we stayed in an absolutely stunning airbnb up in the Malibu canyon. We booked the “zen room,” which came complete with very zen decor and a beautiful 180 degree view of the canyon. One entire side of our room was windows, which meant beautiful light and a beautiful view during the day! It was a perfect complement to doing other things in Malibu, since most people…

Tulum Ruins – Mexico

I arrived at the Tulum ruins after a morning of sleeping in and quite frankly, not planning very well at all. The previous day I had spent doing some very basic R&R; splitting time between my beach lounger and the bed in my hotel room because the intermittent rain showers were a good enough excuse to do nothing all day except read my book and drink margaritas. Truthfully, it was glorious. I set no alarm for the following morning…

Gallo Pinto

I’ll level with you; I’m currently missing my mom. She’s in Costa Rica for a few months this summer taking care of my grandfather. Even though I don’t live at home anymore, I’m still used to seeing her on a regular basis and lately I’ve seriously been craving some motherly home-cooked meals (no offense to your barbecue, Dad!) Recently, I’ve been thinking back to whenever I was last in Costa Rica with her and I…

El Matador State Beach

After doing a solo trip to Mexico, I was more than happy to have the opportunity to do a short, but fun girls trip to California. We only had a long weekend there, so we had to prioritize what we wanted to see. I’ve been in the Los Angeles area several times before, so beautiful and beachy Malibu sounded like the ideal getaway! We rented an airbnb in the Malibu mountains for one night and…
