    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.…

    Lady in London

    About a month ago, we went to London, Ireland and Scotland for our babymoon. We actually planned the trip months before I knew I was pregnant, but then we just made it into a babymoon! We only had a week so we packed ALOT in! I had already been to London for a week a few years ago, so we really just hit the highlights for Jibin! Tips 1. It was cold in May, so definitely make sure you pack a jacket- especially a rain jacket! 2. Check the hours for palaces and days for when the you can visit. 3. Food is amazing anywhere and everywhere in London. 4.…

    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…

    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…

    Journey Through Capetown, South Africa

    I had heard Capetown, South Africa was gorgeous, but I was in for a surprise when I saw exactly how beautiful.

    Sun-kissed by the Myconian Sun (Mykonos, Greece).

    Remember my posts on Santorini, Paris and Rome? Well, we also went to Mykonos during that trip with our friends almost a year ago and I fell in love immediately (even though Santorini was my favorite in Greece). We stayed at a 5-star luxury boutique hotel called Hotel Palladium. The service was phenomenal. The hotle had arranged a complimentary shuttle from and to the airport for us. The breakfast was included at this place and it was one of the best I’ve had. We quickly made friends with the staff that introduced us to Greek wine. The wine in Greece is very different than Italy and I didn’t think I…
