Polka Dots in Amsterdam

After spending three weeks in cold, rainy London, I was so happy to arrive in Amsterdam to a sunny 80-degree day! I had purchased this cute teal polka dotted dress at a street market in Camden Town, London, so I was finally able to wear it. (I was a wee bit excited. Three weeks of rain = no fun.)

London Loves

I've been in London for three weeks now and, being my first time here, I've explored a variety of different areas and put together a list of my favorite places in the city. I never knew prior to coming here how HUGE London is, so I'm glad I've had a few weeks here to really take everything in.

The Pink Wall

If you follow any fashion bloggers, then you've undoubtedly seen photos of the infamous Pink Wall. The wall is actually a Paul Smith store on Melrose Ave in Beverly Hills.

I've been wanting to snap photos here forever, and luckily, a few weeks ago I had lunch with a friend at Gracias Madre on Melrose (amazing vegan food!) and talked him into visiting the pink wall afterward.

Ambergris Caye, Belize

Belize was recommended to me by a few well-traveled friends of mine, and since it's only a 5 hour flight from California, my boyfriend and I decided to vacation there last month. We were looking for a tiki beach hut style hotel, and we both agreed that the Portofino Beach Resort in Ambergris Caye looked like the best option.

Summertime Style in Palm Springs

Last weekend, my friend Christina and I took a road trip to Palm Springs for her birthday. I'm a member of a house sitting website, Trusted Housesitters (awesome for travelers!), and the home owner needed me to look after her home for the weekend. It's great for me because I get a free vacation house with a built-in pool and a gorgeous yard, and she gets a free sitter for her little dog.

Christina had just purchased a new camera lens and wanted to try it out, and the backyard flower garden was perfect place for photos.

Food, Film & Fun: My L.A. Favorites

Okay, so I'm biased because I live here.

Having said that, I'm the best effing tour guide you'll ever have in the city of Los Angeles. So much so that I'm going to have to break this one down into categories:

 On the Cheap:

For those of you on a budget, here's a great way to navigate around the wonderful city of lost angels without breaking the bank:

Cinespia Movies: If you're visiting between May-October, every Saturday the Hollywood Forever Cemetery features a movie night with a photobooth, DJ's and usually surprise special guests from the movie itself. Again, bring blankets, munchies, drinks, chairs, etc. Tickets are about $14, but get them early because they sell out.

Best Places to Shop for Affordable Home Decor

I just finished redecorating my entire apartment (yay!), and since I'm a huge bargain shopper, I wanted to write a quick post and recommend my favorite, affordable places for home decor.

My previous living room theme was dark red and purple tones, but I found myself loving all the photos on Pinterest with bright whites and accent colors. Pinks, corals, teals... that's what I was going for.

Top 10 Things to Do in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Here is a list of my recommendations for the top 10 things to do in Chiang Mai, Thailand:

1. Tiger Kingdom: This was probably one of the coolest things I did. You can pick which size tiger you want to see, so I opted for the babies and the large tigers. (And don't worry, they're not drugged. The baby tigers were actually running all over the room wrestling with each other. Adorable!)  Piece of advice: don't wear white, and bring some wipes, because you get pretty dirty.

Thailand Travel Vlog - Chiang Mai!

Hey all - here's a travel vlog I put together of the trip to Chiang Mai Thailand. 

I included the Loy Krathong Lantern Festival, Tiger Kingdom, Night Safari, Khum Khantoke dinner, and our hotels, Ban Sabai Village Resort and Liam's Suan Dok Mai Guest House.
