Getting ready in London can be a bit tricky because of the unpredictable weather. Most mornings I'd leave the house in a sleeveless dress, prepared for the sunny 75-degree day, but then it would downpour in the afternoon and bring the temperature down quite a bit. I quickly learned to always wear closed-toe shoes, and bring a sweater or jacket. And an umbrella. It's also tricky because I love wearing hats, but it's so windy here my hat keeps blowing off!

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.
I paired up my favorite ankle boots with this black and white striped dress from Bloom, which I LOVE because it's long in the back but short in the front, and twists at the midsection for a super flattering fit.

What I didn't realize before booking our vacation is that once you arrive in Belize City, you have to take 2 hour boat ride to Ambergris Caye. You can also take a small plane that's only 20 minutes, but it's $150 as opposed to the $15 water taxi.
We arrived at our resort and were immediately greeted by the staff with 2 rum punch drinks. The resort was gorgeous. We had our own tiki hut cabana on the water with a hammock on our porch, and our canopy bed was lined with heart shaped rose petals.

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

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. http://cinespia.org/

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.
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.

I spent the summer of 2013 traipsing around Italy. My friend and I started the trip in Venice, then made our way to Florence, Rome, and down to Naples to catch the ferry to Capri.
Here are some of my favorite spots:
Florence: Party on the Arno River. There's beach parties on the sand, bars along the water, you name it. So much fun nightlife! (And enjoy the sunsets. Seriously, look at this photo...)
Venice: Take a gondola ride. It's ridiculously overpriced (about $100 for a 40-minute ride) but totally worth it. A great place to photograph the canals, alleyways and ancient architecture on the island.

During my senior year of college, I spent my winter semester in Paris. Aside from the chilly weather and daily museum trips with my classmates, I managed to squeeze in some pretty rad experiences.
My favorites things about Paris:
- Eating crepes for every meal of the day.
