Aspen in June


I love Aspen, it's soo beautiful. Aspen is a small city, located in Colorado, nestled between mountains and wilderness on all sides. Aspen is the ultimate nature sanctuary. A skiers dream, Aspen is also quite popular in the Spring and Summer months because it is filled with so much greenery and trees- specifically Alpine trees and beautiful Aspen trees. 

I had only been to Aspen in the Winter, so seeing Aspen for the first time in the Summer was even better, because I dislike the cold. It was absolutely beautiful, and so beyond green! It may sound crazy, but there was still snow on top of the Rocky Mountains as we flew over. 

Aspen is such a small city, I really enjoyed walking around Downtown everyday. You can walk the entire downtown in 15- 20 minutes. I stayed at the beautiful The Ritz-Carlton Club, Aspen Highlands. This hotel was absolutely stunning. I stayed three nights, but I wish I could have stayed longer- at least a week. Aspen is such a dog friendly city, there are literally dogs everywhere you look. This is the perfect city to visit as a couple, or for families in my opinion because of all of the outdoor activities and restaurants. 

One thing I love to do when traveling, is go out to eat. I truly enjoyed eating at the many restaurants Aspen has to offer. I went to one of my all time favorite restaurants, Casa Tua, and Italian restaurant that is also located in Miami and Paris. I also ate at Catch Steakhouse, a very trendy steakhouse with an incredible ambiance and bar. Ajax Tavern, a stunning outdoor restaurant located right next to the gondolas is also a must, for the views alone. You can enjoy beautiful views of the slopes here (see last photo). The food is also excellent as well. I also ate at the very adorable and exquisite French restaurant, Cache Cache. I also recommend visiting Hotel Jerome for a great bar and social scene, Matsuhisa by chef Nobu Matsuhisa, for the sushi lovers, and White House Tavern (a Hillstone restaurant) that offers your typical delicious Hillstone American food with a cute outdoor seating area. I also recommend Sant Ambroeus for cute café vibes (they're also located in NYC and Palm Beach). Okay, so I am a total deli sandwich loving kind of girl. If you're into good sandwiches, then stop by The Butcher's Block, they're so good! 

I also visited The Little Nell Hotel, a super cute, classic five star hotel known for hosting ski lovers. We had breakfast at their restaurant, and I visited their Summer Dior Spa Pop-Up. The Dior Spa took over their pool, which was so cute and all Dior Riviera print. Afterwards, I walked to the Dior store which was only about ten minutes away, to see the new Summer Riviera Collection. Of course, the bag I wanted was the Paris Book Tote. Paris here I come!

I cannot wait to visit Aspen again, but I must admit, It will most likely be in the Spring or Summer months, (Christmas would be an exception because it's actually so adorable). See you soon Aspen!

Cabo Spring Break


In March I visited Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for the first time. I had been to Mexico many times before, but never the west part of Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is not only incredibly safe and beautiful, but it is located on the Baja California peninsula which is only a two hour and twenty minute flight away from LA.
My first impressions of Cabo were, "wow I love it here already, it's so beautiful", and "the food here is amazing." I stayed in the most gorgeous modern villa in the hills with beautiful scenic views of the mountains, the marina and the ocean. This stunning home had an insane scenic infinity pool that overlooked the ocean, and had twelve bedrooms total. My bedroom was on the main floor, with a glass door that led out to the pool terrace. I truly miss waking up to the Cabo sunrise and watching the sunsets from the vila.

The food in Cabo is incredible, and surprisingly inexpensive. I ate a lot of tacos, rice, guac and chips this trip. I especially loved the beach day clubs, and the shopping area. I highly recommend going to the marina area as well because there are lot of good restaurants that are right on the water, which is great for people watching. Most of the main attractions in Cabo are all walkable, I didn't take an uber at all. We had a car, but honestly I just walked everywhere. 

I was there for a week, and on the 6th day of this trip, I stayed at another gorgeous villa that was located directly on the beach located about twenty five minutes north of Cabo San Lucas, called San Jose del Cabo. San Jose del Cabo is definitely the Malibu of Cabo. That beach house was absolutely stunning, you can see for yourself from the photos at the end of this post. The beach villa is so stunning, Ralph Lauren even filmed a commercial there a few years ago. I didn't take many photos there because I truly wanted to enjoy this trip, it was my vacation and this post is not sponsored at all. 

  Let's just say I am a huge Cabo fan now, and I plan on visiting at least once a year from now on. It's a great vacation spot for couples, families, and even solo trips. Best of all, you can bring your pups! (Just make sure your furry babies vaccinations are up to date). Of course, I didn't get to see everything in one week, that would have been impossible. So for now, see you soon Cabo!
