Sparrows Lodge

Recently I headed down to Palm Springs to celebrate my birthday and this time around I tried a newish hotel that I’d been hearing lots of buzz about called Sparrow’s Lodge. Whenever I go to Palm Springs I go to simply getaway, sit by a pool and relax. While other hotels in town can sometimes be a bit of a scene, this quiet little retreat in the desert is the perfect low-key alternative. First, it only allows guests who are 21+, so no children and no worries of underage party kids. Secondly, the experience the hotel offers is something …

The Beach Lodge AirBnb Hollywood Beach_5

Tour The Beach Lodge aka the Most Perfect Airbnb Beach Rental

I recently stumbled across the most adorable Airbnb beach rental on Instagram and decided this hidden gem was way too cute not to share! The classic A-Frame house from the 70s is located on Hollywood beach, nestled just between Malibu and Santa Barbara in Southern California. This eclectic abode was recently renovated and features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and an airy, open floor plan. The interiors reflect a mix of ethnic textiles married with mid-century furniture for a boho chic vibe. There’s also an outdoor lounge and a balcony with unobstructed views of the ocean. The fresh ocean breeze is …

48 Hours In San Francisco

Last month I took a super quick trip to San Francisco for a one day conference and padded on a tiny bit of extra time so that I could see the city and explore. I’d only been to San Francisco once before for a business trip a number of years ago but didn’t get to see much. This time around, even though I was there for just two full days, I made the most of every second of my free time and had a blast being a tourist and eating my way through the city! I already can’t wait to …

Cartagena Travel Diary

Hi Guys! Sorry I’ve been a MIA! Summer is always my busiest time of the year and I’ve been up to my ears with work this past month which has left me with very little free time to catch up on the blog. I’ve got lots of inspiring posts planned and some exciting updates to share but for now I wanted to share a little photo diary of my recent vacation in Cartagena, Colombia. Last month I traveled to Cartagena for a quick 4 night, 5 day getaway which was absolutely wonderful! Situated on Colombia’s caribbean coast, Cartagena is an …

Dominican Republic Travel Diary

A few weeks ago in a moment of spontaneity, I decided I needed a vacation so I booked a flight to the Dominican Republic and three days later I was off! I chose DR because I wanted to go somewhere that was no more than a 4 hour nonstop flight from New York and where I could get a great rate at a great hotel that wasn’t too remote. I went alone with absolutely no agenda and spent five glorious days soaking up the sun with nothing to worry about except whether to order a pina coloda or a strawberry …

Dominican Republic Weekend Getaway 1

Greetings from the Dominican Republic!

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about how I was dying to take a vacation to unwind and clear my head and obviously, I didn’t waste any time at all! After a week straight of frigid temperatures in the teens coupled with feeling a bit scatter brained going into the new year, I decided to book a last-minute getaway to the Dominican Republic. I’m so glad I did! I’m here, doing absolutely nothing and having a wonderful time. Here are a few snaps from my Instagram – be sure to follow me there @nicolegibbonsstyle for real time updates on …
