TOP 10 AIRBNBS I'VE STAYED AT



When it comes to traveling, one of my favorite resources is Airbnb. I would say about half of the time that I plan a trip, we end up staying in an Airbnb, and it is always the first place we look for lodging. It's usually much less money than a hotel, more unique, and can offer a better background for our travels. And while the places we stay don't always end up on the gram, they are usually so charming and perfect for relaxation. So today I'm rounding up 10 of our favorite Airbnbs from all over the world!

TALKING SUSTAINABILITY WITH BIOSSANCE


In the past few years (and more specifically in the past few months) I've started to consider my impact on the environment, specifically when it comes to what waste I produce. As a blogger, I tend to work in a more wasteful industry than most. PR packages that come in the mail often have lots of tissue and bubble wrap, and at the end of a busy week, our recycling bin is often full with cardboard boxes. There has been some improvement - some brands are getting better and I've happily watched the amount of filler and plastic packaging go down, all the while saving every single piece of tissue paper I receive to repurpose (seriously, I have a giant drawer of it). But there are still plenty of areas of my own life that needed to be looked at from the lens of environmental health, so today I'm going to talk about a change I've made gradually that is starting to become habit.

ROADTRIPPING WITH THE FRILLY

Just a few weeks ago, before all of the international travel, I had some time in my home state. California is pretty much the ultimate road tripping state, with so much to see just a few hours from home. So Eric and I packed up our van with plenty of looks by The Frilly, and started driving north.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH A LASH LIFT




Some of you may have seen me share this on Instagram, but recently, I've started going to Iris+West to have a new treatment done - a Lash Lift. Now you may be asking, just what in the world is a lash lift? So I'm here today to explain it all, share some before/after pics, and tell you why I'm throwing out my lash curler and making the switch.

THE TRAVEL ESSENTIAL YOU'RE PROBABLY FORGETTING



I travel a fair amount for my lifestyle - I think at last count I've been on over a dozen flights this year with no sign of slowing down. I love traveling, seeing new places, and taking plenty of pictures and videos along the way. But it can come with its fair share of concerns, especially when flying is involved. Airplanes are notoriously drying and while I've always been sure to pack plenty of lotions, face masks, and mists for my skin, there was one area I was really neglecting - my eyes - which is why I am so happy to be working with Bausch + Lomb this year.

ENGLISH HOLIDAY PHOTO DIARY



Late last year, Eric and I embarked on a large road trip across the UK. We started in London, drove through the Cotswolds, to Liverpool, through the Lakes District, and up to Scotland before making our way back down. You can read more about that journey here and here. It was an amazing (and at times quite rainy) trip, and we fell completely in love with the English countryside when we passed through and knew we had to come back to experience it in a different season. So to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary and my birthday, we packed our bags and headed off.
