Travel Diaries: Campeche, Mexico

Campeche Mexico Cute LA

Just returned from my trip to Campeche, Mexico for my best friend's destination wedding. It was a fantastic experience, that included staying at the historic Hacienda Uayamon. The Hacienda Uayamon is situated in the outskirts of Campeche, nestled within it's own jungle. This jungle included ruins of buildings from the 1800s, majestic trees, bat caves (I like to call bats "night birds") and the biggest spiders I've seen in person. I already miss the lime margaritas and hope to encounter their deliciousness again one day.

The trip included an excursion to a beautiful Cenote, where we swam, kayaked and zip lined. Monkeys watched from the trees as we had the Cenote to ourselves for the day. Which proud to say, I successfully zip lined, an adventure that's been on my bucket list for awhile. 

The wedding itself, was an intimate gathering of friends and family. With tequila, a variety of Don Julio, flowing and delicious food. In fact, there was a lady making handmade tortillas throughout the night over a fire. In between dancing I took a field trip with guests to one of the bat caves nearby. Honestly, if I wasn't deep in tequila I'm not sure I would have made the decision to do so. What is life without a little (drunken) adventures?

Travel Diaries: New York Business trip

Cute LA Travel Diaries new york.png

I love my job, as an advertising producer, because it allows countless opportunities. Last week, I got an email that a major brand wanted to fly Live Art Love to New York for a brainstorming session that week. This is amazing because I love traveling and NEW YORK is my second favorite place in the U.S. after Los Angeles. Third, is Vegas, for the debauchery reasons but I'll save that for another post.

Anyway, we stayed in Midtown at the Carlton Hotel which was beautiful and walking distance to Madison Square Park. The brainstorming session was a lot of fun. We threw around ideas with some of the smartest people in the advertising world for a brand. During the meeting they referred to us as the "SWAT Team" for advertising. This is our most badass compliment to date. To know you're creative ideas are valuable is a great feeling.

Side note, during the brainstorming session we got to play with play-doh which is an exercise for bringing back childhood imagination. Next time you're trying to think of creative ideas, break out the play-doh!

While in New York, I also fit in a little fun time. I went to my favorite Pizza spot, Artichoke and grabbed drinks at the Ace Hotel and 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar with New York friends.

Travel Diaries: Washington, DC

When you're a hop and a skip from Washington, DC you should probably just go. That's what we did when visiting New York recently. My friend, Claudia and I decided to hop the train and make the trip to Washington since we've never been before. I'm so glad we did, we were greeted with beautiful weather and scenery.

Every place looked like a postcard. The highlight for me was visiting the historical sights and seeing the White House. Especially since Obama is the president! If you visit make sure that you use the Capital Bikeshare program. It makes traveling so much more fun when you can take in the sites by bike.

As full as we were from dinner, we had to fit in Serendipity 3, and no we didn't buy the $1,000 dessert which they have.

I had a wonderful time during my visit to Washington, DC and traveling by bicycle. On a side note, I did cartwheels around the Lincoln Memorial, if you visit, make sure you do too.

Lo & Sons Bags Sophisticated Travel & Fun

If you're like me, then you count handbags as one of your obsessions. Big, small it doesn't matter if it can hold the necessities it's a winner. Living in Los Angeles, I'm spoiled because there are so many fun getaway places to go for a weekend. Impromptu trips to Las Vegas, Palm Springs, La Jolla, Santa Barbara, Big Bear etc. Spontaneity is where the best memories are born.

Lo & Sons bags are so classy I can carry my outfits for the next few days and go into a restaurant in style.

Recently I did a shoot for Lo & Sons which has everything covered when it comes to blending practicality with style. When I saw this bag I fell in love, and instantly thought it was just a magnificent tote bag. But upon further investigation I saw that it was so much more. The beautiful lavender interior was home to many pockets and hidden compartments for my iPad, makeup, phone and keys. Making this the ideal oversized bag for evenings out or the perfect travel bag when you get last minute tickets to a music festival. Hello multipurpose chic!

This lovely bag I'm modeling above is The O.G., it has leather straps and trim. The best part is it's water resistant nylon exterior and interior. Lo & Sons make sophisticated bags for every occasion and most are already sold out. I can see this brand becoming the next big thing on all the models and fashion savvy girls around the world.

Travel Diaries: Amsterdam

Amsterdam Jam

I was spoiled in my first trip out of the country being Amsterdam. If you've visited you know what I mean. It's lovely and I wish I could fit it in my pocket. I had a wonderful time riding my bicycle around Jordaan, visiting the street markets and meeting the wonderful people. When I visit Europe again, I will always make Amsterdam a destination, and you should too. This was the first stamp on my passport and I'm so happy it was.

Heading to Amsterdam with our MOVE Mobile Closets from Max Mirani also rocking the Mint Josephine Boots.

I thought the color of these leaves were pretty. In Amsterdam apartments and businesses share the same buildings.

He owned the restaurant beneath our apartment, he was amazing. 

Claudia and me in front of the Canal.

Street Art, it says: "I play in the city, with everything that exists."

Claudia with the vintage suitcase she bought at one of the street markets. 

Fringe boots are in, what makes mine better than yours? It's that they're from Fab in Amsterdam. By the way, it was a hard choice but I picked the brown.  Love.

Having fun one night!

Karin was a wonderful and beautiful hostess during our stay.

Beautiful home and bike in Amsterdam. Everyone has a bike here.

Itty Bitty Truck. I could probably lift this with one hand.
