I’m headed back out on the road next week and am already in packing mode. I like to make sure that I’m completely covered a few days before leaving, just in case I need to make a last minute Amazon Prime order! Since I fly a few times a month, I’ve gotten it down to a science. I have a few things that I always carry in my carry on bag – which doubles as a bus bag. My bag got lost the last time I traveled, so I was glad that I had a few key things in my carry on to hold me over. I wanted to share a few of my travel essentials that will help you survive a flight, layovers & long travel! Continue Reading

24 Hours in Charlotte

I’m back guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in the last week. I was traveling & on the road with the world’s worst internet access. Luckily, I stocked up on tons of ideas and pictures for posts! Whenever I go visit my boyfriend, I fly into the city we’re meeting at the night before. Not only because I want to see new cities, but just in case there is a flight delay. I don’t want to miss a flight and not get to him before he leaves for the next city. This time I flew into Charlotte, North Carolina. Just a few miles away from my destination: Carolina Rebellion in Concord. Continue Reading

Squaw Valley Tahoe: All About the Apres Ski Life

The Resort at Squaw Creek   This last week we took a fun family trip to Tahoe! I grew up going to Tahoe a few times a year, so it was so fun finally getting to go back with the whole gang! We met my dad at my favorite spot, Resort at Squaw Creek. It’s hard not to love Squaw Valley, the weather is great, you can ski or snowboard straight from your room & there’s tons of awesome food. You can basically après-ski your face off at any of the restaurants, bars or even outdoor snow covered hot tubs! Continue Reading

SXSW Guide & Playlist


Festival season is upon us! So many awesome music and entertainment festivals coming up – starting with one of my all time favorites, SXSW (aka South by Southwest). I get a lot of questions about shows and which festivals I recommend, so I thought it would be fun to start by doing a breakdown of SXSW and my “pro tips”.

SXSW is a massive festival/conference filled with music, networking, and inspiration in Austin, Texas! This year’s event includes expanded access for all badge types with a ton of new opportunities for learning, networking, and discovery. There are a ton of different way’s to experience SXSW and there’s a ton of information online. I highly recommend starting by browsing Pinterest. There are tons of tips, recaps & ideas. But where do you begin?

24 Hour Vacation: Minneapolis Edition

Radisson Blu Minneapolis

At the end of my trip to Canada, I decided to spend a day in Minneapolis. So random, I know. But it was the easiest flight back to San Diego. I’ve never been there either, so it seemed like a good opportunity to cross it off of my bucket list!

Packing Light: 1 Week in Canada

Hello Canada! I’m so pooped. I got up at 3:45 this morning to make it to the airport. I finally landed in Edmonton and am so excited for my adventures this week!

I’m staying at the coolest hotel, attached to the airport! The Renaissance is literally attached to the hotel but feels like I’m in one of the coolest boutique hotels. I’m about to go hang with some of the girls who work here and have them show me around / try some food out! 

I thought it would be fun to give you guys a peak into my packing style! I’m going to be in Canada for 1 week and it’s supposed to be chilly! Since I’m meeting up with my boyfriend for a few days, I had to pack light. I  make sure that I pick pieces that are easy to mix & match and layer. 

I’m fairly casual, so I bring a couple of sweatshirts, sweaters & t-shirts to mix & max. A warm down jacket & gloves are key! I accessorize/stay extra warm with a scarf and beanie! Another pro tip: I always bring leggings! They’re comfortable to travel in and easy to wear with different outfits!

Greetings from Scottsdale

Four Seasons Scottsdale

Greets from freezing Arizona! We took a quick little trip to Scottsdale this past week and boy oh boy was it cold! I knew the desert got chilly, but I was not expecting rain and freezing days!

We were trying to find somewhere fun to get away that wasn’t too far from home. Since we only had a couple of days before we had to get back, I started searching for spots that were a quick flight. We tossed around San Francisco, Las Vegas & Seattle… but we end up going to all of those cities pretty frequently because of tour routings.
