JOSHUA TREE

I just came back from a road trip to Joshua Tree for my first time with all my best girl friends. We rented a house and stayed for 2 nights and just had some great girl bond time together. We spent a few hours at Joshua Tree National Park but it was raining and really cold so we didn’t spend too much time there. It’s so beautiful and I definitely want to visit again in the summer time! It was around a 3 hour drive from Los Angeles. My road trip fit! Wearing Candies available at Kohl’s. Shop my look now here! Also you can shop more looks on Candies Instagram here

ROAD TRIPPIN’ TO NEW MEXICO

It’s no secret that Christmas through New Years is the busiest time to travel. Unless you make plans months in advance, your travel options are pretty limited if you hold off booking until the last minute–especially if you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg. Since my schedule changes daily and I wasn’t able to book a big trip in advance, this year I kept it low key and went on a road trip with my sister and best friend. I had always wanted to visit the White Sand Desert, so we decided to hit the road and drive to New Mexico from Los Angeles. Our first stop: Albuquerque, New Mexico. Albuquerque: We drove thirteen hours straight to Albuquerque (yes, it felt as long as it sounds) and spent the night there. We left LA around 7am and arrived in Albuquerque around 8pm. I always do my research on what to do and where to eat when I visit a new place, so we had a game plan for dinner. We were exhausted …

ROAD TRIP TO THE GRAND CANYON

I recently came back from a road trip to the Grand Canyon. It took almost 10 hours to get there, and my friends and I didn’t have any hotels booked. When we arrived at 4am, we were delighted (not) to find out all hotels were sold out and had no where to sleep. We had to drive back to the last town we passed over an hour away to find a hotel there.  I had just come back from a road trip to Vegas for my best friend’s bachelorette party the day before leaving to the Grand Canyon, so to say I was exhausted is an understatement. I usually am really good at planning trips ahead of time, but a lot of the times I wing it, which I think is also part of the adventure. We didn’t know where we were staying each day, and just drove to places we wanted to see and found a hotel at the last minute when we wanted to go to sleep at night. As tired as I …

COSTA RICA EXCURSIONS

My visit to Costa Rica was an adventure binge. I set out to experience the rural areas of tropical rainforests, warm pacific beaches and authentic Costa Rican culture. I visited majestic volcanoes and flowing hot springs, hiked to natural waterfalls, fished with local fisherman, swam along the coast and zip lined through the lush canopy. While the drive through Costa Rica was an excursion and bucket-list trip in itself, the activities in each city made the drive well worth the effort. Tourism companies offer the same activities throughout the country, which makes it tricky when deciding where to do what activities. Over-prepare then go with the flow is my motto when approaching this. I did my research before arriving in Costa Rica, but didn’t schedule reservations until there. I loved all of the activities I decided on, check out my Costa Rica excursions below.
