Tulum Mini-Guide

I've had the pleasure of visiting Tulum myself on numerous occasions. But if I'm being totally honest, those visits typically involve me plunking myself on the beach and calling it a day. But after reading through Courtney's mini-guide to Tulum, I'm feeling the urge to head back and seriously explore! Chock full of dreamy photos...

How to Pack for a Week in a Carry On (in Style)

Not only does packing everything in a carry on let you breeze through the airport (which, in this day and age is reason enough for me), but it makes traveling in general so much more pleasurable. No more wardrobe melt-downs. No more lugging around cumbersome items on cobblestone streets. Ever since adapting these rules for myself, travelling has become easy and breezy and this is how it's done! Jeans:...

Provence, France Mini-Guide

One of my very best friends moved to the South of France for a year when we were just 19 years old. At the time, I wasn't much of a traveller and never did make it over to visit. It is, to date, one of my biggest life regrets. Made even more so when I stumbled upon Gert Huygaerts mini guide to Provence. If you need me, I'll either be packing my bags, or...

Lake Como Mini Guide

It has officially been 3 months, 1 week and 2 days since my last trip - not that I'm counting. And though that is basically nothing in the grand scheme of things, it feels like eons for a travel nut like myself. So putting together this Lake Como mini-guide with Claire Graham has been a massive tease! It certainly doesn't help when the place is this dreamy. So ...

Amalfi Coast Mini-Guide

It's been just over a year since my jaunt to the Amalfi coast and I would be lying if I told you I didn't regularly miss it fiercely. It's truly a magical place, and I'm so thrilled that we can all experience it, if only vicariously, through Angelworx Photography's collection of photos. And if you don't...

Travel to Dubai

I'm somewhat of a travel junkie and have been known to hop on a plane at any opportunity to jet off to my next adventure. In truth: there isn't a single square inch of the world that I'm not interested in unveiling. And, by in large thanks to Anouschka Rokebrand and her most recent vacation, Dubai has slowly been creeping up my list of must-see places. If this hasn't convinced you, ...

Italy Hiking and Cooking Trip

It's been almost a year since my trip to Italy and I still daydream about it daily (you can read about it here!) There's magic here that simply must be experienced first hand. And I swear the moment I return (oh, I will return!), it'll be to follow Cambria's footsteps and partake in a hiking & cooking adventure. Have you ever...

Bali Mini-Guide

A few years ago a girlfriend of mine packed her bags to vacation in Bali. What was supposed to be a two week-long journey quickly turned  into a two year jaunt. And while she was always the type to embark on these types of crazy adventures, I now get why we pretty much had to force her home. One peek at Love Is My Favorite Color's incredible photos, and it's taking all my effort not to pack my bags myself. WHERE TO...

Peru Travel Diary

Having just returned from an incredible two weeks in South Africa, you'd think my wanderlust could take a break. And I suppose it did, for a moment. And then I stumbled upon Ava Do's photos from Peru and all at once that familiar tug to go. do. see. has come rolling in. But since travel isn't in the cards for a while, I'll sustain myself on living vicariously through...

Travel to Tuscany with Jessica Burke

Whenever something from Jessica Burke lands in my inbox I just know I'm in for a treat (I mean, did you SEE this rehearsal dinner? It's insanely gorgeous). And her trip to Italy? Well it somehow surpassed even my highest of expectations. I spent more time than I'll ever admit poring through her photos.

Exploring Iceland with Jessica & Matt

Welcome to 2014! Way back in '13 we travelled through the countryside of Italy, to the villages of Thailand, past the deserts of Morocco and on to the...

Travel to Thailand

For as long as I can remember, I've imagined honeymooning in Thailand. It has always seemed like that magical mix between adventure and pure relaxation (which is no easy feat!) After setting my sights on Love Is My Favorite Color's photos I either need to get married immediately so we can get this ball rolling, or I need to revisit my plans. Because it's seriously taking all of my willpower to not pack my bags immediately. And...

The Netherlands with Lexia Frank

It's official, Lexia Frank needs to be my BFF. We've already travelled to Paris, Switzerland, Amsterdam & Brussels with this lucky girl, and now we get to peek at The Netherlands through her lens. And her lens? It's...

A Mini-Guide to Morocco

A few years ago, my cousin spent a school semester in Morocco completely immersed in the culture. I remember opening my inbox on more than one occasion to some of the most incredible snapshots I had ever laid eyes on and at moment I vowed to make my way there eventually. In the meantime, we can all live vicariously through sweet Birgit who just returned from a whirlwind trip...

A Mini-Guide to Ibiza, Spain

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Ibiza. One summer, back in high school, two of my best friends took off on a whirlwind month long European vacation. For a multitude of different reasons I was, unfortunately, unable to join them. Though they visited a number of different cities, Ibiza is one that specifically sticks out in my mind. Yes, it's absolutely stunning. Yes, it's overflowing with culture and history and all things great. But it took my friends away from me when I was 17 and...

Tuscany, Italy with Feather & Stone Photography

I've been fortunate enough to have made my way to Italy a handful of times in my life, but I've yet to experience the magic that Tuscany holds. I've had an inkling for a while that it was a place that I needed to experience for myself, but after gushing over Feather & Stone's photos, I'm now more convinced than ever. Rolling hills, stone houses, bottomless glasses of local red wine... pure magic, really. And luckily for all of us...

Chicago Mini-Guide from Alexis Buryk

I actually had the pleasure of visiting family friends in Chicago when I was 14 years old. I was much too young to really grasp everything the city had to offer, but I do distinctly remember feeling like it held its own kind of magic. I've been meaning to go back to experience it properly ever since, and with Alexis Buryk's tips & tricks I know I'll be well equipped when I do. Plus?

Travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico with Kimberly Chau

Our Livings editor, Jacquelyn, is a travel junkie. Me, not so much. I think when you have two smelly kids, the idea of being too far from home suddenly becomes a bit more, well, daunting. But honestly? Seeing these gorgeous images from the lovely Kimberly Chau from her trip to Puerto Rico sort of makes me want to throw caution to the wind and pack up the whole family. Almost. This trip is beauty defined and there is so much more...

Parker Palm Springs

A weekend at the Parker Palm Springs is the perfect way to check out of normal life and check into a life of glamour, sunshine and relaxation!  It's been a longtime favorite of mine for it's beautiful design (by none other than Jonathan Adler himself), stunning grounds and amazing spa.  Last weekend my husband, our two dogs and I spent a weekend there...
