I’m such a sucker for fresh flowers! I enjoy walking into a room and seeing a vase of fresh flowers. There is something about a bouquet of fresh cut flowers that can just brighten up my day instantly. I’ve also loved the idea of sending flowers to those close to me for special occasions like a birthday, a baby shower, or any other sort of congratulations. A gorgeous display of hand-picked blooms is one of the easiest ways to make your loved ones smile. Unfortunately, ordering flowers from online companies can be a frustrating process. The flowers might come to the door not as fresh as we’d like them to and they almost never look exactly like the ones displayed on their website. But The Bouqs is different. In this blog I will explain why The Bouqs is my new favorite floral delivery service!
In Vietnam, the Lunar New Year is known as Tet. Tet is Christmas, Easter, New Year and Thanks Giving; all rolled into one package. Tet is celebrated from the 1st of January to the 3rd, according to the lunar calendar. It is a time for family reunions, and for paying respect to ancestors and the elders. In this post, I’m sharing with you some of Vietnamese Tet traditions.
It’s no secret that I am completely obsessed with Palm Springs. For years Palm Springs has been a California desert retreat, known for its modern and chic style. Palm Springs is one of the best places to visit all year long, whether you’re coming to party at Coachella or just want to relax by the pool in the sunshine. It’s a lifestyle photographer’s dream location with so many Insta-worthy photo spots, restaurants, and neighborhoods. My Palm Springs City Guide gives you everything you need to know to plan for your upcoming vacay, from things to do, where to stay, and all of my favorite Instagramable spots!
It doesn’t seem to be New Year’s Day without having the Rose Parade playing on the TV. Founded in 1890, the Tournament of Roses, which features flower-covered floats, spirited marching bands and high-stepping equestrian units, is America’s New Year Celebration, a greeting to the world on the first day of the year and a salute to the community spirit. Thousands of families and football fans board flights every year to California to take part in what has become a time-honored tradition.
You’ve seen them on television, and now you’re dying to see all the details of those gorgeous Rose Parade floats up close. Here’s the first thing you need to know: Don’t go to the parade. That’s because there’s a much better way to get a good look at them and take their photos: Post Parade.
As winter sinks in, I normally plan for a vacation somewhere warm and tropical…but this year, I’ve got cabins on my mind. I was dreaming of a cozy winter cabin that can only be reached by dirt roads. Often surrounded with wilderness and seclusion, cabins are wonderful places to take a much needed break from everyday life and serve as fantastic winter getaways. Many visitors to SoCal might be surprised to know that just a short day-trip from Los Angeles sits a winter wonderland in the San Bernardino mountains – Big Bear Lake.
When planning our trip to Big Bear, we looked at all sorts of cabins. Our main criteria was finding a home base in the central area of Big Bear with the rustic charm of an authentic A-frame cabin. During our search, we came across a charming cabin called Lovin’ Life Lodge A-Frame of Mind. This cabin was placed high on a hill with great views and it was a centrally located home base that allowed us to experience Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead area. What a perfect way to celebrate my Christmas holiday with my loved ones! If you are still looking for the perfect winter holiday gift (or maybe next Christmas) for your loved ones, there is nothing better than surprising your family with a getaway to a cabin in Big Bear. In this blog I will share with you 10 reasons why you should stay in a cabin in Big Bear during the holiday season.
