Affordable and private. Tulum stands out from other destinations by having small boutique hotels . For that reason, you will not be able to find a big resort located on the beautiful beach. I highly recommend booking a trip or at least a hotel at least two months ahead. All meals are freshly made, fresh fruit and sea food all day long ! Seems like a perfect romantic getaway to me !

Saint Barthelemy island is located by Miami. If you have been wanting to experience french culture but do not want to go all the way to France, this is the place to go. Island is extremely small, it only has a few hotels. However i highly recommend spending a little extra and getting a villa, you will not only have a great view but will get to experience island in a better way. Everyone in St Barth's speaks french, food is ammmaazzing and people are extremely helpful and friendly. You can see some photos from my trip to Saint Barthelemy under Wanderlust. It is a little pricey to go there for a week, but if you have a special occasion coming up it is worth an extra splurge!

Cayman island stands is the Caribbean paradise an hour away from Miami. This island has been rated as one of the best destinations for scuba diving. For those who are not adrenaline seekers and like to stay above the water, it offers activities such as swimming with sting rays and hiking through 200 year old trail with mesmerizing views.

S T A Y : All the resorts on the island are amazing. You can't go wrong with anything in Cayman.
E A T : Anything outside of your resort ! "A way to a city's heart is through it's street food".

Krabi Town offers more privacy than some of the other parts of Thailand. A resort Rayavadee Resort which has been rated as one of the top 15 resorts in the world is located in this little town as well. This is also a great little town to stay at for your honeymoon. If you book ahead of time you might be able to get a room at Rayavadee Resort.

E A T : The Grotto , street food and resort food are both amazing with a real touch of Thai.

When in doubt, grab your travel bag and run away. 

I have mentioned this before, but i will mention it before that choosing the right traveling partner is one of the most important parts of your life. I have been blessed with the fact that my boyfriend loves traveling and exploring. I believe that the key to a happy relationship and life is not necessarily going on long trips once in a while, but it is all about doing spontaneous short trips, even if it is just an hour away. It is not only good for relationship, but for your soul and mind as well. This month's getaway was to the beautiful town La Jolla, located by San Diego. It is about 30minutes away from SD, and a two hour drive from Los Angeles.

Burger Stop
When we think of going on a vacation we right away think of booking a flight. But sometimes best getaways are those that involve spending hours talking about life, making random road stops and just going with the flow. Sometimes we got to let go of our schedule and just enjoy life. If there is traffic, take an exit, go on YELP and find a hidden gem in the town you have stopped in ! 

La Jolla 
Torrey Pines Gliderport
If you love outdoor activities and adrenaline Torrey Pines Gliderport is a great spot you. It offers paragliding and hang liding. I do not recommend booking it ahead or just stopping there, look into weather conditions before coming there-make sure it is a windy day out. We ended up waiting two hours for the wind to pick up so that my boyfriend could go hang liding. As much as i wanted to go too, after seeing people go off the cliff and leave their lives up to the wind i stayed safely on the ground and watched everyone do their thing.

Estancia, located about 5 minutes away from Downtown of La Jolla is one of the most beautiful boutique hotels i have ever been to. It has been on my list of 'must stay at' for a while now, and i have finally made my way to stay there. It stands out from other hotels by a great service, gardens surrounding the hotel and a wine bottle as a welcoming gift from the staff. Does it get any better than that? It is also known for the spa, but i did not have enough time to experience it. If you are planning on going to La Jolla, make sure to check out this hotel, i promise you will love it so much you will end up canceling any dinner plans you had outside the hotel and will stay on the grounds of Estancia and dine in one of their restaurants by their beautiful gardens.

Boho Vibes

It is Tuesday, and we are almost half way through the week. I am so happy sun is out again in SO CAL, it has been so cold and gloomy lately. Thought i will share this great chic look i shot last week with all of you !


Looking for a perfect, easy to put together outfit for a day out ? Your search is over! I know summer is all about wearing light, colorful clothes but all black outfit will make a fashionable statement any day, in any weather and of course during any season of the year. If it is cold out, just grab a black leather jacket, couple accessories and you are going to look boho chic.
