NEW SKINCARE OBSESSION!

(This post was sponsored by Olay, but all my opinions are my own).  As we all are spending a lot of time at home, I am finding ways of self-care  to feel my best everyday. One of the things that I take seriously as most of you know is my skin. I barely wear makeup, and that’s because I feel confident about my skin because I take care of it. Now that I’m in my thirties, I am looking for ways to prevent and prolong wrinkles and aging as much as possible. I feel like I live in a world where everyone gets botox and fillers to look younger (which I find nothing wrong with), but if I can prolong doing those things or even doing them at all, and use a product at home that works, why not! I love discovering new products and sharing my skincare obsessions with you on here, I hope you like it too! I have tried lots of different face serums, moisturizers, and gels- I even got into using …

ZORBA & MAHAYANA BEACH HOMES IN TULUM

Back to Tulum exactly a year later! I was in Tulum January of 2019 & 2020, and I kept my exact itinerary and stayed at the same places both times. I split my time between sister properties Zorba & Mahayana Beach Homes in the heart of Tulum. They are luxury villas right on the beach  in the center of the main strip in Tulum, yet it still feels quiet and remote. There’s only a few homes at both Zorba and Mahayana which makes it feel way more private and intimate than most of the “trendy” boutique hotels in Tulum with tons of rooms. I usually stay 2-3 nights at each place- this trip I started off at Zorba for 2 nights, then moved to Mahayana for 2 nights. I wrote about my past experience at both properties in my Tulum Guide blog post- you can see more info & pictures from my first stay  HERE There are different category villas that range between 2-4 bedrooms at both properties. One thing to keep in mind if you book-these are …

VIDEO: FINLAND VLOG

Better late than never! Edited my Finland VLOG  from last year FINALLY. This is probably my favorite video to date. It gives a great glimpse of what its like traveling with me, as well as shows you a good idea of Finland and things you can do there. It was such an epic trip, also different from my usual trips to warm weather places. My favorite part was experiencing the Northern Lights for my first time. It was indescribable and unforgettable. I really had the most magical time, and hope to go back soon. For my Finland travel guide with more info on activities and where I stayed, click  HERE!

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 …
