LA Locals Love: Creme & Sugar OC

You may have seen the famous Unicorn Hot Chocolate or the Unicorn Shake on your feed once or twice. At least once if you follow me on Instagram since I posted my birthday treats from Creme & Sugar in Anaheim, home of the Unicorn Hot Chocolate.

Orange County has become quite the spot for foodies with its diverse offerings of delicious and Instagrammable cuisine. Since I technically live in Orange County, I have to give a shoutout to @OCFoodFiend who's inspired me to try out new restaurants in the Orange County and Los Angeles area as well as introducing me to Instagrammable places like Creme and Sugar! I don't actually 'know' @OCFoodFiend but we've been following each other for a while and I like to think we're Instagram friends, ha!

7 Apps That Every Travel Blogger Needs

8 Must Have Apps for Travel Bloggers

When it comes to apps on my iPhone related to travel, social media or photography, I feel like I've tried it all. I'm a typical Millennial (good or bad thing?) and I'm absurdly picky about user experience. I've tried the free ones and I've spent money on others. While my phone has tons of apps on it, there's really only a few that I immediately go to for different reasons other than you know, text, phone, e-mail and the other basic apps.

I also get asked often by readers what apps I use for certain things; editing photos, videos for Instagram Story, etc. I did answer a few on two posts; Travel Blogger Myths & Truths and 15 Questions I Get Asked Most Often As A Travel Blogger but I thought I would break it down and share my favorites apps here today. Below I have best photo editing apps, best app to erase objects out of pictures, best social media schedulers and more. Let's get to it.

Featured Friends: Moira from Style Pack Go

One of Fly Away Friday OG's, Moira from Style Pack Go reached out about being November's Featured Friends and I have to say, I was ecstatic. I've always loved her demeanor, her participation in link-ups or groups and her blog that's a fusion of fashion and travel, which she does seamlessly. Truth: we've been trying to get together for what feels like almost a year now, haha! I live in Southern California and Moira comes down here quite a bit for her actress/director career (I know, super exciting - don't worry, I made sure to ask about it in the interview!) so we've been talking about grabbing lunch. With our busy schedules though, we haven't been able to make it happen. I'm really hoping that it's soon!

Anyway, I had a fun time interviewing this multi-talented lady and I know you'll enjoy getting to know her as well. Let's get started!

Checking In: Carnival Cruise Imagination - Halloween Voyage

Carnival Cruise Imagination Baja Mexico
This post is in collaboration with Carnival Cruise. However as always, opinions are my own.

If you've been following my blog the past few weeks, you know I've partnered with Carnival Cruise for 3 posts (10 Things To Know Before A Cruise & 10 Things To Pack For A Cruise) and this is the final one! I had the amazing opportunity to take the Halloween Carnival Voyage from Los Angeles, California to Ensenada, Mexico on the Carnival Imagination this past weekend for 2 days.

In good Southern California fashion, the weather was absolutely ideal for cruising and what a great getaway it was! The Carnival Cruise Baja Mexico route is perfect for people that have never cruised before but curious to try it. Whether you're retired, with children or a couple like my husband and me, it's an absolute blast. Let's start off by giving you a look at our Stateroom!
