Central Market

Central Market reminds me of my favorite Chelsea Market in New York. It’s full of amazing food and arts and is absolutely beautiful. We got some tasty burgers and fries in the wee hours of the night that really hit the spot. Did I mention the neon signs galore, oh there is so much character put into this space, it’s breathtaking.

Dodgers Game

File_003I love a good baseball game, from the food to the arena to the energy of the people attending it’s all my favorite! We attended a Dodgers game while visiting LA and though they didn’t win it was still a good time and the stadium is right out of the 60’s. Did I mention the garlic fry line is definitely a good one to wait in.. trust me!

Perfect LA Airbnb




Airbnb is a game changer when it comes to traveling being a hospitality major, I know a lot about traveling. This was my first personal experience with Airbnb and I would recommend it to everyone. I was looking for a central location in LA as I knew there were a few places we wanted to go that were scattered across the map. That’s when I stumbled upon the Lovely Private Guesthouse. The name of this cute place literally describes it perfectly, this private guesthouse is quaint and perfect for a weekend getaway for two. You can book your next trip here, and thank me later. Happy Travels!

LA City

I surprised my sweet Jesse with a trip to LA for his birthday. I found the cutest Airbnb, (more info to come on that) as well as fun restaurants and spots I thought he would like. This celebratory birthday trip was one for the book and grew our love for California. Hey J, should we move!?

Spring Miles

Running my sweet heart out over this beautiful Spring weekend. Luckily I don’t have any type of allergies or this weekend probably would’ve resulted in a different experience. Get out side my runners and start putting those miles on your bodies. Training for a 5k, a half or even a full we all start at the same place and that’s just putting on our shoes to do so. I run during the week on a treadmill so when the weekends come it’s like a fresh breath of air finding new trails to run on, but literally it’s a fresh breath of air the cardio cinema gets a little smelly with too many people. Happy Spring!



Working on my green thumb and thinking about the possible garden this Spring could bring but small indoor spaces aren’t usually the easiest gardening spaces to work with. I recently read an article about indoor citrus plants, we are talking fresh Oranges, Limes, Lemons you name it. Once I read a little more the maintenance and especially the humidity required (hello, dry weather Utah), I headed back to the drawing board. Looking for the perfect indoor plants for my sweet space but for now my store bought flowers fill the void.
