    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.…

    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…

    Key Things To Do in Key West

    The gorgeous, calm, serene and picturesque waters of the Keys have a way of setting a soothing tone and a familiar sort of comfort. A few months ago, I had the pleasure of a short weekend getaway to the Keys with some of my good friends including my sister and brother in law. Key West was very similar to Nantucket and I fell in love immediately. Read on to see where to stay, where to go and what to do! Before the Trip My sister recently moved to SoFlo and we decided to go visit her where we had a short one night stay, but got to see the gorgeous…

    My 6 Hour Venice Experience

    Almost 2 years ago, when I went to Kerala, Dubai/Abu Dhabi, Rome and Tuscany, I also went to Venice. The picture above is the classic view you get in Venice and it honestly was the most picturesque city I had ever been to. However, Venice is a city you can do in a few hours so on the train ride from Rome to Florence, we made a stop in Venice (bought the 7am ticket from Rome to Venice and the 7pm ticket from Venice to Florence) so we could explore the city and we still got the full experience. We left our bags at the train station- they store luggage…

    New York, I Love You, XOXO III

    About 3 months ago, we went to fashion week in NYC (read all about my experience and the Asaf Ganot show here) and even though Mr. Gentlementality and my primary purpose was for fashion week, we had go to squeeze in time to go explore! As promised, here is the rest of the post from what we did- don’t forget NYC I and NYC II. We stayed a couple of extra days to explore the city (yes, in the cold). The cold wasn’t bad at all- it was the wind and the slush from the snow melting from the storm the day before that was difficult, but it still didn’t stop us…
