Hello Again, London! // Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel

It’s been 2 years since I’ve been back in London and I’m so excited to have made it happen again. I loved being welcomed by The Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel for the first part of the trip. It’s nestled right near Covent Garden, Soho, Oxford, etc and walking distance to so many pretty areas. I loved that I could walk to most places knowing the hotel was right around the corner.

The room was stunning with an elevated bedroom space and common area, along with a separate closet area. It also had a marble bathroom that was spacious as well with a separate bath and shower area, making the stay so comforting.

Steak & Lobster is their next door restaurant where they pride themselves on fine steak and fresh lobster. The combination was quite mouth watering and not to mention, it came with unlimited fries. Their freshly caught lobster and steak comes from County Antrim in Northern Ireland, which made it all the better. Not to mention, I had just come from Ireland so it was a pleasant surprise.

Breakfast the next morning was such a great spread of options. They also had individual rustic boxes filled with assorted croissants and jams to mix. It’s safe to say, this was one of my favorite breakfasts in London.

If you find yourself visiting London, be sure to make Radisson Blu a high consideration. It’s well worth being in an area where you’re so close to everything, not to mention, being accommodated so well by a hotel staff like this. I can’t wait to be back!

Writers Studio // Nashville

A few weeks ago, I went back to visit Nashville because I miss it dearly. I’ve been traveling for almost a month and it’s always difficult to keep up with music I’m writing, so with The Hutton Hotel’s latest renovation, I was able to experience their newest addition, The Writer’s Studio. It’s a fully equipped studio with everything I could possibly need to work on idea while I stayed there and I was in love. Everything they did from the studio space to the hotel feels like a modern apartment for the creative Nashville dweller.

A Weekend In Santa Barbara at The Wayfarer

Last weekend I got to venture to Santa Barbara for the first time. Anyone that's talked about it has said so many great things, and it was the perfect way to start the year. I made The Wayfarer my home and I loved its proximity to all the beautiful streets, restaurants, and not to mention the ocean was just a few streets over. I wanted to share some highlights of my weekend and some things I captured through photo + video.

If you ever get a chance to visit SB, be sure to check out The Wayfarer and they'll take great care of you :) Not to mention, they recommended one of the best restaurants called The Lark (pictured above) and each plate was a work of art. I already can't wait to go back to dine there and explore more of the beautiful town. 

Getaway to L'Auberge de Sedona

The past two days I've been in Sedona, AZ (for the first time!) visiting a beautiful boutique inn, L'Auberge de Sedona. They have several locations, but this one was stunning for the first one. It's nestled right beneath the red rocks, scenic hiking routes, and other attractions. There was a lot of history to Sedona I had no idea about– including the fact that Walt Disney took much of his inspiration from the scenery. It made sense because I instantly felt like I was transported into another world. 

Not only did I feel such magic and serenity here, but the hotel itself was pure bliss and a perfect escape to wind down and rest. The staff was so warm and instantly felt like a little family. I had a little cottage right in front of the creek with a perfect view. I also loved the details like the fireplace with fresh wood placed at my door each day, the outdoor shower, and beautiful interiors. 

My stay wasn't nearly long enough and I can't wait to visit the other locations in the future. See some of my stay below and be sure to check it out if you're ever in Sedona– you won't regret it!

Warmest welcomes on a cold foggy day. 

My little cottage tucked away

A few of the beauty essentials including my Instyler curler. 

Made a visit to the l'apothecary spa to make a custom body scrub blend. 

Couldn't get enough of these views

Enjoyed the chef's menu at Cress with a 3 course meal. It was an art experience for my mouth– each one was another world of goodness. Above are the beef carpaccio (which I kept calling carpaccio island because of the colorful vegetables on top) and the venison. 

Loved taking these walks each morning :)

A perfect night to end each day. 

Thanks L'Auberge! xo

Palm Springs With Simon x Vogue

Recently I got to take a trip down to Palm Springs joining other bloggers with Simon Malls. We shopped till we dropped, ate yummy food, and ended it with a shoot with photographer, Grant Legan, while being hosted at The Saguaro Hotel for the weekend.  It was a joy to be captured by him and spend time with such a wonderful group of people. 

Thanks again to Simon Malls, Vogue, and The Saguaro Hotel for a dream weekend!
