Let's Go To: Chicago, Illinois


I've been overly excited to visit Chicago for a few years now and I finally made it! Some people, namely Californians, were shocked I would visit during the winter. Not only did I grow up in a city with all four seasons, I lived in Detroit and in the Pacific Northwest so the cold doesn't scare me one bit. In fact, living in California the past 3.5 years, winter has been lacking in my life and wanted it back!

So yes, what better place than Chicago for that right?

L.A Locals Love: Venice Beach, California


Staycations are the best. It gives you an opportunity to explore places you normally wouldn't go to and gives you the time to actually appreciate the place. I didn't have plans on doing this staycation but had the opportunity to be out there for a few days and decided to make it one!

Venice Beach is a beautiful and quirky place. If you've been there before, I think you know what I mean. Even though it's connected to the iconic Santa Monica beach, it's completely different. The vibe, the people, the shops, just everything. I've never really stayed in Venice long enough to scope it out and I'm glad I did!

Hi, everyone! I'm so excited to introduce my guest poster, Bethanie. Funny story - she used to be my Night Auditor when I managed the Front Office at a hotel a few years ago! We've kept in touch and now she's devoted to being a fitness queen who blogs about her healthy lifestyle. We had been chatting about guest posting on each other's blogs and finally made it happen! So happy to have her here. Enjoy and make sure you go say hello on her Instagram and blog!

Travel Itinerary 2016


Lucky are those who have their travel plans all lined up for this year but I'm definitely not one of them! I have some rough ideas but most of them are not set in stone. However, I've had a lot of people asking me what my year will look like so I've made my best attempt to introduce where I will most likely be visiting throughout 2016.

Any location with an asterisk is definite, others are tentative. If you have any recommendations regarding any of the places, please shoot me an e-mail or leave a comment as I would so appreciate them!
