The Pink Palace of the Pacific, Our stay at the Royal Hawaiian, Waikiki

Royal Hawaiian Hotel Honolulu Waikiki Beach

When I was pregnant, it was like a broken record hearing I wouldn’t be able to travel as I did before, or traveling with a baby would be difficult. We decided early on that although our travel dynamic would change, it definitely would not stop. So here we are just returning from a trip that we decided to go on last minute. By last minute, I mean we decided to go to Hawaii on a Thursday and were on a flight Friday morning. A separate post on traveling with our literal bundle of joy is coming. This post is dedicated to the hotel we chose. Nothing seemed more perfect than taking our little prince to the “Pink Palace of the Pacific.”

Being someone who loves to travel, it was a blessing to meet a partner with a similar case of wanderlust. Finding out we were pregnant kept us grounded, something foreign to us. But the time has come, and we are excited to share our love of adventure with our bundle of joy.

New Year's Eve, along with baby Rio's two-month birthday, was the perfect time to celebrate with a getaway. A chance to dip our toes into traveling with our new addition.

Hotel Figueroa Downtown Los Angeles, CA

Hotel Figueroa Los Angeles Travel

 I have a love-hate relationship with Los Angeles. I love this city, love the weather, the people, the food but hate when I have to leave. Another thing I love about LA is the abundance of stylish hotel options. With a last-minute trip to LA and a need to be downtown, the Hotel Figueroa pranced through my mind. I stayed here previously when it was still under its Moroccan-themed demeanor.  The hotel has since undergone a renovation, and I was curious to see if I liked this latest LA facelift. 

Tropical Vibes, Puerto Escondido, Mexico


There are some places based on photos alone that beckon your name. When researching Puerto Escondido in the state of Oaxaca, the images that popped up had my name written all over them. A beach town with an infamous surf reputation drawing a bohemian crowd, I was intrigued.

When traveling, finding the perfect place to stay, I believe, is essential to the trip. There's a comfort of returning from a day's adventure to a place that encourages unwinding, relaxing, and being pampered, enter Escondido Oaxaca.
