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.

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 …

I Want to Go Here: Hotel Iturregi in Basque Country, Spain

Street style fashion blogger Vanessa Jackman recently posted a recap of her trip to Spain and I was captivated by these images of the Hotel Iturregi where she stayed. Located in Basque Country, a scenic region of Northern Spain bordering France with beautiful rolling landscapes, vineyards, wineries and some of the best food in the world, Hotel Iturregi features just 8 well-appointed rooms with with a mix of traditional and modern decor. The property looks so peaceful and magical…I would love go there some day!

Haute Hotel: The Parker Palm Springs

This past summer my girlfriends and I packed our bags and headed to Palm Springs for a relaxing long weekend where we enjoyed a fabulous stay at The Parker Palm Springs. Designed by Jonathan Adler, the Parker is full of personality and makes you feel as though you’ve been transported to a retro 1960s movie set. The vibe is colorful, whimsical and the entire guest experience embraces Adler’s “happy chic” philosopy. Every second of our stay was perfect…from the amazing breakfasts at Norma’s and refreshing poolside cocktails to one of the best massages I’ve ever had at Psych – …

Haute Hotel: The Colony Palms

A few weeks ago when I visited Palm Springs we spent our first night at The Colony Palms which is a beautiful old Spanish style hotel with a storied history. In the 1930s the property was owned by an alleged member of the mob and was equipped with a basement casino, a speakeasy and a brothel! It was Hollywood’s golden area the hotel, called The Colonial House back then, was a glamorous retreat frequented by legendary stars like Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Carol Lombard and many more. Over the next several decades the hotel changed hands a few times before …
