    Palm Springs

    I took a trip to Palm Springs, California with my Mom back at the beginning of January during the Palm Springs International Film Festival. It was AMAZING. Palm Springs shares similarities to Scottsdale, Arizona, but with slightly different activities. Palm Springs is the ultimate getaway to be in touch with nature, relax and be surrounded by celebs. How to get there1. Palm Springs Airport- we booked our tickets 6-7 months in advance because I knew I wanted to go during the film festival so we got roundtrip tickets from ATL to Palm Springs Airport on Delta for $468. By the way, this airport is amazing- most of it is outdoors.…

    What I Wore

    Remember my Not-So-Maternity-Wear post? Well, here’s another addition- buy dresses that are bigger to begin with as their style! This one is great because it is nursing friendly as well since it has buttons all the way down- and the best part is, it is an XXS and still fit me at 34 weeks and probably will fit after as well- great find at Kate Spade! Their sizing is amazing for being pregnant! What is your go to flowy dress?! Also, the best part is that the dress is navy blue! Remember my post on why navy is awesome?! And lastly, the brown and white stripe signature style of Henri…

    A Weekend in L.A.

    L.A. isn’t exactly my cup of tea, but we went for a weekend back in October and it only confirmed my liking for NYC and the east coast more. It’s a great place for those whose personality fits it. However, we still had a great time and though I may not be going back to make yearly trips, it’s definitely worth visiting once- it’s definitely a stay over and not a destination. My favorite part was the healthy food options no matter where you go and hiking to the back of the Hollywood sign! Housing We stayed at 1600 Vine Street apartments– an AirBnB find. It was the first time…

    Yes, you can wear a skirt to workout!

    I’ve always been a believer of dressing like you may run into your worst enemy at any given moment (fashion advice from Coco Chanel herself)- so yes, that includes working out! Whether it is a run, yoga, biking, hiking or rock climbing even- you can still wear a fashionable workout skirt. Now, I’m not talking about a skort (fashion faux pas- unless you’re rocking the 80’s look), but I’m obsessed with this Jette Capri Skirt from Skirt Sports. This workout skirt is perfect with it’s tights attached underneath and the tights have mini hidden pockets! I used to be made fun of for wearing a dress and tights to go…

    The Best of Barcelona in 2 Days

    Yes, that’s the classic picture when you think of Barcelona! Gaudi inspirations are of course all over the city. This particular infamous picture is at Park Guell. We went to Barcelona about 6 months ago when we went to Capetown, Milan and Spain. I absolutely loved Barcelona- I could definitely live there- after all, I’m a big city gal. Of course, we walked everywhere- but things in Barcelona are more spread out than other places, so be prepared to walk alot if you choose to walk everywhere! From the food to sightseeing and to shopping (of course), it had the best. We had 2 full days in Barcelona so we…
