VIDEO: UNBOXING MY SNUGGLE-PEDIC MATTRESS

NEW HOME NEW MATTRESSES! I was in need of a new mattress and pillows to finally get the much needed rest between my hectic travel schedule, so I put it out to my friends and family that I was on the lookout for the best mattress and pillow out there and Snuggle-Pedic was the immediate response. I was a bit skeptical about those mattresses that come as a bed in a box, since I understand many of them are cheaply made, but Snuggle-Pedic was a top-rated company and even had the highest ratings on Amazon, so I gave it a go. I had a chance to meet the creator, Dr. Rick Swartzburg, a Chiriorpractor and sleep expert who gave me the run down on what I could expect and I told him I would review it with a fully honest appraisal as a person who cherishes a good night’s sleep! The results speak for themselves on the video, but I will say that both the Snuggle-Pedic mattress and pillow are amazingly comfortable and supportive. They definitely …

MY GUIDE TO FRENCH POLYNESIA

I had the opportunity to travel to French Polynesia this year, a place I’ve wanted to travel to for so long. Bora Bora had been on my bucket list forever, so when I got invited to work with the Four Seasons in Bora Bora I had to make it happen. Since I was going to Bora Bora, I decided to add Moorea and Tahiti to the itinerary as well. This blog post will have info on all 3 islands: Bora Bora, Moorea & Tahiti. *IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, TO SEE THE FULL EXPERIENCE YOU CAN WATCH MY FRENCH POLYNESIA VIDEO HERE TAHITI If you are flying in from an international flight, you have to fly into Tahiti to get to Bora Bora or Moorea. It’s crazy to think that Tahiti is just an 8-hour flight from LA! I didn’t realize it was so close, and actually EASIER to get to than most islands in the Caribbean from Los Angeles. (LA to Caribbean most likely has a layover in between, making travel duration easily 8-10 …

MY FIRST RETINOL SKIN COLLECTION BY OLAY

I am a retinol virgin no more! I finally decided to incorporate retinol into my daily skincare routine. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve started using this retinol skincare collection, and I wanted to share my thoughts. For those of you who aren’t familiar with retinol, it is a form of Vitamin A that is an anti-aging compound that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and skin discoloration by increasing the production of collagen in the skin. It acts as a skin exfoliant to help improve blemishes by preventing dead skin cells to clog pores. It also promotes cell turnover, stimulating the production of new blood vessels which helps even out skin tone and improves skin color. Its set apart from other skin ingredients because of its potency. I’ve been told by a few skin doctors that I don’t need to use retinol. I don’t have any dark or sun spots, pores or wrinkles (yet!), and my skin is pretty even and smooth. I know retinol can cause irritation and redness at first, and …

MY GUIDE TO THE AMALFI COAST

I’ve been to Italy so many times that I might as well be an honorary Italian at this point lol. I am definitely an Amalfi Coast veteran by now- I have been going a few times a year since 2015, and it is my happy place and without a doubt my favorite place in the world. I get tons of questions about the Amalfi Coast, so instead of answering each question individually I thought it would be best to write a blog post with all the info in one place! I will share logistics in getting from one place to another on the coast, as well as recommendations on where to stay, eat, and what to do. BUT FIRST, if you want to check out my older posts from the Amalfi Coast from 2015/2016, check them out here: (and don’t judge, I’ve come a long way since these posts haha.  Sometimes  I want to update older posts to better format them because they look super amateur but I kind of like seeing my progression and …
