LA Locals Love: The Broad Museum

If you were to Google all the museums in Los Angeles, you'd see that we have so many amazing ones to choose from, it'd be hard to narrow it down to just one for a day visit. On Earth Day, I took the train out to DTLA instead of my car and set out for a day of adventure at The Broad, a contemporary art museum. I had been to The Broad once when it first opened in 2015. I had to reserve admission tickets months in advance to avoid the hours of waiting in line! This gorgeous and eclectic museum has been all the rage with local and tourists, and it should definitely be on your list of places to visit in Los Angeles. Here are some helpful tips on how to make your visit to the The Broad an awesome one!

Visiting the World's Largest Christmas Store

When you find out one of the most popular places to visit at your destination is Bronner's Christmas Wonderland, the largest Christmas store in the world, you go. This wasn't my first visit but it's been several years since I was there last and couldn't want to revisit. I used to live in Detroit, Michigan and remember how magical it was when I visited the first time. Because who doesn't love Christmas and Christmas decorations?

Checking In: MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit, Michigan

Even though I knew of the MotorCity Casino and their colorful, grand building when I lived there, I had never visited. When I purchased the Detroit Red Wings' final game at the Joe Louis Arena, I knew I wanted to experience and stay at the MotorCity Casino Hotel.


LA Locals Love: Melrose Trading Post

Sundays are for relaxing, eating a hearty brunch to soak up the drinks from the night before, and it's a day  for enjoying the Los Angeles sunny weather. As much as us LA locals love our warm weather, we don't get to enjoy it often enough due to sitting in our cars, in traffic 5 days a week. So, what's a way to take advantage of the almost always perfect weather in Southern California? Take a leisurely stroll to shop and people watch at the Melrose Trading Post!

Featured Friends: Cherie from Nada to Prada

It's that time of month again to meet a new Travel Blogger! Say hello to my April Featured Friends, Cherie from Nada to Prada! Cherie emailed me about a month ago just to introduce herself and I loved that! I enjoy hearing from people that stumble across any of my social platforms; it truly makes my day.

Without further ado, let's get started on the interview with Cherie!

Book Of The Month Review

This post is sponsored by Book Of The Month. However as always, opinions are my own.

Something you may not know about me is that I love reading books. Yes, I'm one of those people that are anti-ebooks and anti-audio books. When I travel, I always bring a book with me. That's probably when I get most of my reading done! Is that just me?!

I'm beyond excited to be partnering with Book Of The Month, a monthly subscription box that sends you new books!

Touring the Grand Canyon with Pink Jeep Tours

One of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and definitely one of my highest bucket-list items is the Grand Canyon. I'm sitting here at home still in disbelief that I got to see the magnificent Grand Canyon with my own eyes.

When we were planning my trip to Sedona, we knew the Grand Canyon was going to be too vast to go at it alone. Of course we could have figured it out on our own but in order to use our time wisely and efficiently, we knew a tour would be the best choice.
