A few weeks ago, I had an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Germany with System Professional for a brand immersion event. But before I dive into that (in my next blog post), I want to share with you the beautiful resort I stayed at during my trip. About an hour and a half outside of Munich, in Bavaria, lies a luxury resort and spa called Schloss Elmau. When I walked into my suite, my jaw just dropped. So spacious and that view... of the mountains, was simply extraordinary to wake up to every morning. The property was stunning and there were countless infinity pools (six I believe, if I counted correctly). All the meals (and countless wine) I had was top notch as well. Did I also mention I had the pleasure to experience the best full body massage ever? It might have been the most whirlwind trip to Europe, but I had the most wonderful and relaxing time at Schloss Elmau. Definitely wouldn't mind flying 12 hours for a spa day again!

Who says you can't wear black in the summer? Wearing white or light colors might be the typical thing to do in terms of wardrobe but there is something quite refreshing about wearing black during the summertime. I stayed cool and chic in this INC International Concepts outfit while in LA last weekend. I absolutely adore the floral embroidery on the off shoulder top, all the colors really pop against the black. I paired it with a classic oversized handbag and strappy wedges. So... thoughts? Think you will give wearing black a chance this season?

You might have seen me dropping hints here and there but it's official! I am moving to LA in exactly a week from today! Are you surprised? I know I am! This opportunity kind of came out of nowhere but I jumped on it! If you know me, you know I have been wanting to move to a new city (specifically New York City) for quite some time. I am not going to NYC just yet (that will hopefully be next year), gonna take a little detour down to LA first. Just a few days ago I quit my full-time job which I have had for the last two years, gave notice to my apartment, about to sign a lease, and decided to go back to blogging and freelancing full-time. I did that for two years a few years back and I am ready for it again. Not gonna lie, I am scared and nervous but also anxious and excited. Life is short and sometimes you just gotta take the plunge. These photos couldn't be more appropriate... they were taken in Santa Monica less than two weeks ago when Jeremy and I took a roadtrip to LA. Little did we know we would be moving there.

My life is a blur lately, in a good way. I have been traveling so much that I don't even know what date it is. In the past 7 days, I was in LA, Germany and Yosemite. Let's start with LA, shall we? We took a roadtrip and stayed at Aloft in El Segundo near LAX last weekend. What a fun little hotel with so many colors and playful touches. I especially love the wxyz bar in the lobby and there was even a DJ (music was on point) on one of the days. Our room was modern and comfortable with a bed that made me not wanting to wake up in the morning. My favorite spot of the property though was the outdoor patio with fireplace, perfect for lounging and sipping on drinks in the evening! Thank you Aloft for hosting us, we will definitely be back!

I remember rocking Baby-G when I was a kid, but as soon as I got a cell phone I ditched all my watches. Who need watches when you can check the time on your phone, right? The cool kids didn't so why would I? Now that I am older I love wearing them again, watches are classic and they make a great accessory too. The Pharmacist Watch by Sanctuary in particular is the epitome of modern classic luxury. I am wearing the royal blue and rose gold combo with a black watch face while Jeremy is wearing the pecan brown and gold combo with a blue watch face. We are also rocking aviator sunglasses by Sanctuary. These accessories got us feeling dapper so we dressed up a bit fancier than usual and shot these photos up on a rooftop at sunset. We clean up nicely, don't we?

Earlier this year I made a promise to myself that I will travel more, for at least once a month, whether it be a staycation just a couple hours away or a vacation that requires me to hop on a plane. Well, I am making it happen! In the past 5 months I have traveled to 7 different places and it truly gives me joy. As much as I love to travel far and wide, sometimes staying local is nice because traveling can be exhausting. We recently checked out The Clement in Palo Alto, an all-inclusive luxury hotel, and it was amazing! Imagine this... having all the drinks and food you can possibly think of (yes, open bar and ice cream too!) at any time of the day anywhere on the property. It's basically having your own private chef, we actually watched him cook in the open kitchen! Oh and our suite... it was absolutely beautiful! But my favorite was definitely the rooftop pool and spa with lovely cabanas and fireplace. The Clement Palo Alto was truly a 6-star experience, thank you so much for hosting us!
