We recently had the luxury of staying at Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay and it was such a DREAM. Half Moon Bay is a small city on the California coast and is a total dream for nature lovers. The coastline has lots of paths for hiking and biking and the water is great for surfing and boating.
This past week my little family and I got to spend some time at Hotel Yountville and it was so amazing. We really had the best time exploring the area and spending time together. The hotel is tucked away in in the heart of Napa Valley. We had the most breathtaking views of Wine Country. I mean, we were definitely in the most prime location, we were surrounded by more than 400 wineries. It was so hard to leave.
I recently got the chance to be completely pampered at the luxurious Alvadora Spa at Royal Palms Resort and Spa here in Phoenix. Royal Palms is nestled at the base of Arizona's Camelback Mountain, between downtown Scottsdale and the Biltmore corridor, and is only 7 miles from Phoenix International airport.
This past weekend we got to stay at one of our favorite resorts, Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona. We love visiting Sedona, especially during this time of year. It was a much needed getaway for our family. We definitely all came back feeling refreshed.
You guys probably already know, but Sedona is one of our favorite weekend trip destinations. It’s so beautiful, the weather is always nicer than it is in Phoenix and there’s lots to do. One of the best parts of visiting Sedona is getting to stay at the Hilton Sedona Bell Rock.
We LOVE vacationing here because it is just the best escape. The resort is so peaceful and relaxing as it’s nestled right in the middle of Sedona’s red rock mountains. Honestly no matter where you are within the resort, the view is spectacular.
Taking your first trip to Wine Country? I wanted to share some of my favorite spots with you to help you navigate. I've sat down to write this a million times but something always came up. So here it is... ever-changing and they need our business more than ever.
Napa/Sonoma has a very special place in my heart. My husband and I would head that way when living in SF almost every chance we got. I would drink and he would eat, it was a win-win. We spent lots of special occasions in this magical place and we definitely know our way around.
As you guys may know, we recently traveled to Hawaii and had the opportunity to stay at Waikiki Parc. It’s such a beautiful and relaxing hotel and everything about our stay was so perfect. The hardest part about our stay was deciding when to go out and explore and when to stay and enjoy everything the hotel had to offer.
I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Hilton Sedona Resort Bell Rock and you guys, it was SO amazing! Our entire stay was absolutely nothing short of dreamy. It’s incredible how relaxing and peaceful the resort is. It’s nestled right in the middle of Sedona’s infamous red rock mountains so no matter where you are within the resort, the view is spectacular.
I recently took a road trip out to Southern California where my best friend and I had the opportunity to have a girls weekend at the beautiful Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey.
The luxury waterfront location was all sorts of dreamy.
With a bright and airy ambiance and stunning coastal views, we were able to soak in all of the California sunshine and sea breeze.
Our stay was the perfect mix of play and relaxation.
Marina Del Rey offers all sorts of activities and entertainment throughout the city.
With tons of water front restaurants and shops to stroll around in Fisherman’s village nearby, or if you love to be active you can do anything from paddle boarding to a sunset cruise on the bay.
The Ritz offers plenty of amazing amenities throughout the hotel for your stay.
You can enjoy lounging by LA’s only waterfront pool destination at the cabanas. Or relax and refresh yourself with a day of serenity enjoying a massage or facial treatment in the 7,000 square foot spa.
The hotel offers over 300 rooms and suites each including private balconies with insane views of the ocean and city.
The interior of the suites had a refreshing coastal themed ambiance. With gorgeous bathrooms that had all the perfect lighting and marble décor a girl could dream of.
The hotel also offers pet friendly accommodations as well as a wonderful fitness center equipped with eucalyptus steam rooms.
We had an exquisite experience at the Marina Del Rey Club Level located on the eleventh floor with breathtaking ocean views and an exclusive hotel experience within the hotel. With personalized services, the suites and Club lounge offer a relaxing luxury to your stay.
The Club Level cuisine and cocktail experience was a first class experience and was enough reason in itself to choose the Club Level.
The restaurant terrace within the hotel features Cast and Plow encompassing a coastal theme and offering a true California cuisine that can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors around balcony fire pit lounges.
We enjoyed each unique dining experience there with the variety of farm fresh dishes and handcrafted cocktails.
With community inspired plates incorporating local Southern California culture through the supply of local wineries, farmers and fisherman.
This beachfront destination is perfect for anytime of the year, with the holidays coming up it can be the perfect California Beach getaway to relax and refresh before the new year.
Being located minutes away from LAX, Beverly Hills and many of LA’s popular beaches you are in a prime location and can enjoy all of the luxuries the Ritz Carlton of Marina Del Rey can offer.
The W Hotels always have the best vibes, interior décor, and amenities, but the modern feel to the W Seattle Hotel was all sorts of amazing. They made me and my little man feel right at home from the very beginning. Even though he was all out of sorts because he's not necessarily a "city dog"... he found comfort in our cozy room!
The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Seattle with gorgeous views of the city, and in walking distance to restaurants, Seattle parks, and entertainment you can walk to just about anything your heart desires.
The building itself feels like a piece of art with their most recent renovations, the culture of the city is brought to life within the hotel.
Although, the amenities don’t end with the beautiful interior décor. There are a variety of suite options, access to 24 hour room service, a fully equipped gym, and full pet amenities.
Hemingway was a happy guy here on his stay with us at this swanky location! He was extra happy that he got to enjoy time with us in the living room area where we could have drinks and bites and have him with us.
The W Seattle has a wonderful scene within the hotel as well in their lounge and bar called the Living Room, which has a modern swanky vibe.
They also have an award-winning restaurant, Trace, which offers a variety of delicious seasonal dishes.
With all sorts of amazing accommodations at the W Seattle you will feel refreshed by the mix of relaxation and culture of the Seattle scene that you can enjoy at your stay at the W Seattle.
We can't wait to visit this beautiful location again!
I recently had the opportunity to stay at Willows Lodge in Woodinville, Washington. Willows Lodge is truly such an amazing and magical place and the property is so beautiful. It’s located on five lush acres that border the Sammamish River in West Washington’s wine country. Willows Lodge makes every effort to be the most relaxing getaway. Each guest room and suite has a gorgeous fireplace and soaking tub designed for two and the exterior of the lodge is so green and beautiful.
My Bumble girls and I recently had the opportunity to have a weekend staycay at Hotel Valley Ho and it was the BEST. I love that Bumble brings us together for super fun events like this one. My favorite thing about BumbleBFF is how much emphasis they put on harvesting friendships. It’s hard to find time in my busy schedule to really give each of my friendships the attention and quality time that they deserve, but BumbleBFF has really helped me with this! I really do love getting to spend quality time with my friends at our events, and our Bumble x Hotel Valley Ho staycay was definitely one for the books.
I recently partnered with BumbleBFF and Hotel Valley Ho to host a girls staycation in Scottsdale, Arizona. As a part of the staycation Hotel Valley Ho hosted us for a dinner and brunch over the course of our stay at their restaurant, ZuZu. Which offers a modern twist on classic fare. The restaurant had such a nice ambiance that features live music on Friday and Saturday evenings that gave all the good vibes throughout the night.
A few weeks ago I packed my little family up and made the little trek from Phoenix to LA in hopes of escaping the heat. We love LA. Mostly because it's where we met back in 2010 and also where we lived during our peak party years. Lots of memories from that time and friends that are family to this day.
I recently partnered with BumbleBFF and Mountain Shadows Resort to host a girl’s staycation in Paradise Valley, Arizona. As part of the Staycation, Mountain Shadows Resort hosted us for dinner at their premier resort restaurant, Hearth ‘61. Hearth ‘61 offers fine dining and a full bar within the most relaxing atmosphere. Dining there was such an amazing experience! The restaurant has amazing mountainside views, as well as views of the resort’s pool. The kitchen is open so guests are welcomed and encouraged to observe their food being prepared with fresh ingredients and time-honored cooking styles.
