The ATL of My Eye

I've spent almost a month in Atlanta (my brother lives here) and have yet to experience the entire city. There's lots to do within city limits, not to mention the outskirts, and I was thinking of getting on MARTA (public transportation) and exploring a bit without a car, but that never happened. Maybe next time?

Te amo, Tulum

Here are lots of pics and a little advice for you while this place is fresh in my memory. I've never been more heartbroken to return to "real life." Maybe some day, I will move to Tulum like all the Europeans (Italians, especially) and lead a hippie lifestyle. Fresh fruit cocktails, avocado everything, warm people, cool water - for the rest of my existence. Doesn't sound half bad.

7 Spots to Catch a Stunning Sunset in LA


Oh hey, I'm back! And older than ever. Officially no longer a 20-something-year-old, I've spent the first half of 2017 working more than playing. But I did write this little piece for TravelPulse about my home (Los Angeles, four years now!) and where I go to see the sunset when I have a little time off. Enjoy -- and if you happen to visit any of these spots during Magic Hour, send me pics.

Glamping: Make it Yurt So Good

 Last week, I spent two nights at a yurt somewhere above Santa Barbara thanks to Glamping with Pets. This was no regular camping trip (we already know I'm not a fan of camping), although I would've probably been scared shitless if left up there alone. My yurt stay was magical in all the right ways, from the rolling hills and ocean view in the distance to the soothing sounds of rain, wind (and a newly quenched creek on our last morning) and an unidentifiable animal or two.

17+ things to do on a weekend in Portland

Spent a quick 48 hours in Portland and will definitely visit again in the spring. It was freakishly cold for PDX at between 28 and 35 degrees Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the ground was covered in snow (and ice, which led to me to eat it on the pavement a couple hours into my trip). A lot of eating and drinking was done (possibly too much, and more than usual) and it's important to note that if you're not a drinker, Portland's probably not the city for you.

LA's Secret Stairs are a great place to work off those holiday pounds

If you're at all familiar with LA and its people, you know we're always searching for fun and wacky new ways to get healthy (green juice cleanses, yoga booty ballet, etc.). Climbing "secret stairs" to achieve that peach-emoji shaped bum is another thing Angelenos do.

12 Ways to Fall in Love with San Jose del Cabo


The less commercial of the two Cabos, San Jose del Cabo is a place where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Pacific Ocean and the desert meets the sea. I spent three nights in this paradise, and could easily spend 30 more. See below for the highlights of my trip, and feel free to use this as a guide if you ever find yourself on a quick trip to the south side of Mexico's Baja California peninsula.

11(+) Things To Do in Cartagena


The (almost) perfect city for a destination wedding, Cartagena is affordable, small and easy to navigate on foot. The food's great, there's music on every street corner and the architecture and colors are super Instagrammable -- for those of you who care about IG. The down side: it's hot and humid and mosquito-y 24 hours a day.

15 Things to See and Do on a Gloomy San Francisco Sunday


On my third trip to SF (and on my 3rd year living in LA), I had a very organized itinerary and list of restaurants and bars, thanks mostly to he-who-shall-not-be-named (JK- my ex). It was a fun, albeit exhausting, trip that included a train trip to Levi Stadium for a 49ers game I spent waaaayyyy too much money on. The stadium is beautiful, but a pain in the ass to leave (300% Uber surges, really?) But ya live and ya learn, right? Other than football, the trip was cool, though i would’ve enjoyed an extra day or two filled with re-dos of things I’ve done in the past (Golden Gate Bridge, Sutra Baths, Hog Island Oysters, etc.).

10 Places to Go in Fort Collins, CO


Didn't know much about Fort Collins, CO except that one of my friends is from there/lives there and that another friends’ sister went to grad school there. I stayed in the downtown area and it’s a charming little neighborhood with shops, restaurants and great breweries. Everything you could possibly need is within walking distance.

10 Ways to Occupy Your Time in Chicago



I took a very quick, very lazy trip to Chicago a couple weeks ago. What was supposed to be spent looking at wedding dresses (not for me, but for my BFF) and that sort of thing ended up being more like 48 hours spent flip flopping between the apartment and a select few restaurants and bars. Also, it was Super Bowl Weekend and everyone seems to close up shop that Sunday in the Midwest. No one was on the streets and it was so easy to get a car. But it was nearly impossible to get a meal. I know because we Ubered to three places before we found one that was open, and all the restaurants we called didn't answer the phone.

Magic Monday // Palm Springs, Pioneertown & Joshua Tree


Because Sonoma is no longer a bachelorette party place option for us, I am writing this to convince the decision maker (bride) and her minions (bridesmaids) that Palm Springs is in fact the best U.S. option for a September weekend girls' trip.

27 Things to See and Do On A Sunny NYC Sunday



I'm aware that there was a super crazy blizzard in NY a few weeks ago, and that tourists and locals alike thought it was glorious for the first couple hours (the whole playing in the Central Park snow thing), but then they were over it. I'm also aware that, although NYC's summer sweat makes everything itch, New Yorkers count down the days until the warmer months' arrival.

Magic Monday // Salvation Mountain Road Trip

       

There's a cure for the Monday blues, if you don't work a traditional job, that is (if you do, you can always play hooky). I've been making an effort to go someplace new each week so I trekked to Salvation Mountain in the Colorado Desert a couple Mondays ago; this mountain/massive art piece made from Adobe, straw and lead-free paint is based on Christian sayings and bible verses like the Sinner's prayer and was created by a man named Leonard Knight in the '80s. You don't have to be religious to appreciate it.
