We are pretty new to the vegan dining scene (since we aren’t vegan) and after our experience at Gracias Madre, we wanted to dine at one of their sister restaurants called Gratitude Kitchen & Bar. They offer organic plant-based cuisine and are located right in the heart of Beverly Hills.
We looked into the weather for early September and it was definitely going to be a challenge packing for this trip. The temperatures from day to night fluctuated drastically (at least according to the average annual forecast), so we had to pack accordingly.
Tenaya Lodge is a gorgeous resort with a variety of lodging options from traditional hotel rooms, cabins, and cottages. We wanted to stay at their newest accommodations in the Explorer Cabins as it was a great fit for us since we were traveling with a group of six people.
The Grove has been in LA since 2002 and it’s one of those places that all the locals know about. I can’t count how many times I’ve been to the Grove for birthday parties, store events, dining, movie premieres, and more.

I made last minute reservations at Robata Jinya after doing a quick search online for restaurants on LA’s West 3rd Street. This street in West Hollywood is filled with great restaurants and cafes, so I knew there had to be a Japanese restaurant.
Have you seen those beautiful palm tree lined streets in Los Angeles and ever wondered where the heck people took those photos? Well, we had the same question and were determined to find out. We searched online and we saw a ton of blog posts that showed off their amazing photos, but none of them actually gave an address to the location.
I recently moved back to Los Angeles and Crystal booked a ticket to visit me during the President’s Day weekend in February.

Crystal has been a huge fan of Saved by the Bell, a popular 90’s TV sitcom, and she was beyond excited to visit this cafe.
Banff National Park has become increasingly popular and we can completely understand why. The park is easily accessible and the views are breathtaking. We packed a lot into our days and since most of the attractions we visited were popular hot spots, our itinerary consists of very early mornings to beat the crowds.
When I first moved to San Diego I was only familiar with the things San Diego was well known for and never heard of Balboa Park. The park is filled with museums, gorgeous architecture (great for photo-ops), gardens, hall of nations, and lots more.

What if we told you that we found an accommodation that combines the reliability and consistency of a hotel and the warmth and comfort of a space that felt like a home? You probably would think that this doesn’t exist, but we are here to tell you that it does! Staying at a Sonder is your answer.
We love visiting trendy and cute cafes so much that one of our readers commented on how much we love coffee. Yes, we love coffee but not as much as the decor of these adorable cafes.

We recently attended the fabulous Galentine's Brunch at Fruitcraft with Gals That Brunch and had such a wonderful time. This was an event supporting local charities and boutiques such as Cinderella’s Attic, Sweetly Striped and Wild Hearts and Halos.
Yes, shaved ice cream, not shaved ice. It's a hybrid between a traditional ice cream and Hawaiian shaved ice.
It was my first time attending the Travel And Adventure Show, so I really had no idea what to expect. It was a two day weekend show and it was being held at the San Diego Convention Center.
