Pokemon Cafe Review | Tokyo, Japan

Pokemon Cafe Japan Review

Are you a Pokeomon fan? Who isn’t, right? When I found out the Pokemon Cafe was in Tokyo, I immediately added it to my priority list of places to go. Big thank you to one of my Instagram followers, @Gorudo-san for the heads up about the Pokemon Cafe! Even though I was planning on blogging about the Pokemon Cafe, I knew I had to when both my Pokemon Cafe Instagram photos got the highest amount of likes in Life in Wanderlust history! 


Final Boarding Co Sticker/Decal Shop on Etsy
I'm so excited to finally share with all of you that I've opened an Etsy shop! I feel like this post is perfectly appropriate as my 200th post here on Life in Wanderlust. I've been toying with this idea for months now and finally decided to go for it a few weeks ago!

In addition to just being a travel lover in general, as some of you know, my first job out of college was with Delta Airlines as a Japanese Interpreter. There, I started obsessing over airport codes and always loved the fun airport code bumper stickers people would don on their cars and suitcases.

Then I thought, why not make them myself? How fun is it to share where you've been, where you're from or where you'd like to go?

Checking In: InterContinental Fiji Golf & Spa Resort | Honeymoon in Fiji

InterContinental Fiji

Disclosure: I paid for this stay. The InterContinental Fiji Golf & Spa Resort provided me with a media rate in exchange for this post. All opinions are as always, my own. Thank you for supporting brands that make Life in Wanderlust possible!

Beware, I'm about to make a huge statement. After staying at literally hundreds of hotels in my lifetime, I can positively say that the InterContinental Fiji Golf & Spa Resort is the best hotel I have ever stayed in my life. This is coming from me, an avid traveler and a former hospitality employee. That's right, friends. It's true and I wonder if any hotel would ever overtake the #1 spot.

My husband and I had always wanted to visit Fiji so what better excuse was there than to go for our honeymoon? Even before we got engaged, we had our mind set on honeymooning in Fiji. Now the biggest question? What hotel should we stay at?

Let me tell you, I did so, much, research. I exhausted myself one too many nights looking through hotels in Fiji, reviews, prices, transportation options - I mean, everything. So much so I think I could be a Fiji hotel concierge since I know so much of the area, hotels and offerings now!

So where did I land on? The InterContinental Fiji Golf & Spa Resort. Here's why.

5 Amazing Brunches in Downtown Los Angeles

(Poppy + Rose) 

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I'm obsessed with brunch. Brunch has been a part of my life growing up way before it became the cool thing to do. To me, weekends = brunch and I guess I'm glad the entire world is now on board with that formula because well, more options! Especially now that I live in downtown Los Angeles, it's been such a blast almost every weekend, trying out new brunch spots. I've been eager to write up a post sharing the best brunches in LA and here it is!

Checking In: Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya | All-Inclusive

Zoetry Resorts Riviera Maya
This post is in partnership with as I was a judge for their 2017 Noble Beach Prize. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for your continued support for Life in Wanderlust!

Back in October, I had the pleasure of visiting Cancun for the first time. I'm still dreaming of the beautiful room we had, the views, the drinks and the delicious ceviche (amongst tons of other food!) we got to experience. While we were packing for our trip, the weather forecast showed the Riviera Maya area raining the entire time with thunderstorms. Well guess what? We got lucky and it rained once overnight but sunny otherwise!

I was invited as a guest to the Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya. This property was the winner for the "Most Spawesome Experience" of the's 2018 Noble Beach Prize! You can check out the winners for the 2018 Noble Beach Prize here and more beach-tastic posts on their blog here. I was fortunate to be one of the judges for this contest and just finished judging properties again for the 2019 winners!
