I wish I could express how much I love Melanie Gabrielle for sending this gorgeous walk through France with us, but I'm just so awe-struck by each breathtaking image words have escaped me.

The Amalfi Coast…Pregnant

Having had three beautiful babies, I can pretty much claim the title of Worst Pregnant Person EVER. I'm grouchy, splotchy, gigantic and generally just a miserable mess. So the idea of traveling far from my bed, much less out of the country like the lovely Jessica Lorren did, sounds a touch frightening. But, if I were to have laid eyes on these photographs...

If you could create the perfect romantic getaway, it would probably include a beach location, authentic cultural cuisine, and a variety of different activities. I don't think you could ask for too much more, except maybe a really good margarita when you arrive. This little island right off the coast of Cancun has all of that and more captured by Ariana B Photography. Together with and her fiancé , they're dishing their tips...

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.

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...

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...
