TRAVELING TO COLOMBIA

hi guys! i just got home late last night from colombia. man, what a trip! 5 jam packed days full of exploring, dancing, eating, shopping, adventuring for my best friend’s bachelorette trip. we went to cartagena in the old city and it was seriously beautiful. it feels like a latin american new orleans with all of the bright colors and gorgeous balconies everywhere! i felt completely safe and would definitely recommend visiting. we flew into panama and then took a 1 hour flight to cartagena…

we rented a villa to hold all 18 of us (can you believe we somehow didn’t have any drama with that many girls?!) i loved having a home base where we could hang out in the pool and lounge areas late at night. (probably way too late a couple of nights) we ordered pizza and did a lingerie shower one night for cammy and it was really fun. we also took a salsa class there!

we found out on our second day that we were going to be reviewing two different partner hotels of british airways which was a fun switch up. we took an uber to soho and checked into the london edition hotel. you walk in and the overwhelmingly good scent takes over and you realize you are somewhere fancy and amazing. look up! those ceilings! look left, those velvet green couches! swoon.

a very impressive lobby/dining area, that’s for sure. the rooms have a really cozy vibe with warm wood walls, fuzzy throws, soft lighting, a big shower with white robes, and excellent room service. more on the “punch room” at the bottom of the post!

i’m sitting on the couch writing this post and i just want to go BACK!! i had gone to london twice before, but it was for teaching blogshop so i never had too much time to explore and one time i had the stomach flu. i am SO happy i had a change to change my mind on london and can honestly say it’s now one of my favorite cities. denise and i went on a 5 day #bleisure adventure with british airways and set out to make a long weekend london travel guide. a few of my close friends gave me recommendations and i also had tons to explore from your comments, so thank you! hope you enjoy part 1 and i will be posting part 2 very soon!!

we flew in the world traveller plus section on british airways, which is under business class but more than coach. every plane is different, so i’m always curious to see what the experience is going to be like. it was my first time on a double decker plane! there was tons of legroom in the world traveller plus section and it definitely felt luxurious compared to coach. it’s way more room! you also get a leg rest, the seats lay back really far, and you get lots of free movies and wine for that travel anxiety. the plane ride was a breeze. ps, check their jetlag calculator to get on track for your trip. they also let me visit their lounge at LAX (silver pass member can also access the lounge!). i was seriously impressed with the lounge. they had showers, recliners with mood lighting, a smoothie bar, a full food buffet, a firepit (!), a free bar, beautiful chairs…i wanted to go to the airport hours earlier just to chill in there.

MARFA TRAVEL / PART TWO

maria trip part two | designlovefest

i did a full post on marfa here and this is part TWO! we stayed only one night in the airstreams at el cosmico before we moved over to our airbnbs for the other two nights. (by the way, i think 3 nights and 3 days was a really perfect amount of time to go to marfa)

the houses were AMAZING!! literally the most perfect location walking distance from the grocery store, our favorite bar, and pretty much everything else. the place had two houses that shared a yard and was decorated very verrrry cute. if you want to stay here, click here and here. and if you would like $20 off your first airbnb trip, click here! the houses fit us all and we even had an amazing back house with a firepit and dining table. we were calling it the VIP room ha. seriously, book this spot!
