Mother’s Day is coming up and if you’re lucky enough to have your mom around L.A. on that day, you’re probably thinking about how to celebrate. Brunch and flowers are not the only things you can do to thank your mom for all she has done for you! Be creative! This year (2018), thanks to the weather, the cherry blossom in LA has been delayed until mid-May and it’s perfect to take your mom to see that delicate flower, all pink and white-a slice of spring magic. You don’t need to fly her to Tokyo or DC to see the cherry blossom…but just drive 20 minutes outside Los Angeles to La Cañada Flintridge where Descanso Gardens is.
Having always wanted to see the tulip festivals in Europe or lavender fields in Provence I felt like the Flower Fields in Carlsbad helped satisfy my wanderlust dreams until I could fulfill them. Every year from March 1st to May 13th, 50 acres on the west side of Carlsbad come alive with the beauty of thousands of blooming Ranunculus flowers. I went this past week and was surprised I had not heard more about it in the past. It was at about 85% bloom!
Glamping is the perfect combination of outdoor living and hotel comfort. Featuring all of the best bits of camping with a little luxury and glamour thrown in, glamping is suitable for those who look for a getaway in nature with some comforts of home. My husband and I love being outdoors and experiencing nature in as many ways as we can, but not always roughing it! So this Halloween we decided to try out glamping in Joshua Tree National Park! Vintage 1964 airstream, magical starry sky, spooky coyote howling,…all made our first glamping experience unforgettable! There’s no question about it: Joshua Tree National Park has some of the best camping sites in Southern California. There’s something about the barren landscape that brings a sense of peace and solitude and, at the same time, provides endless opportunities for adventures! In this blog I’m sharing with you what to look out for if you are planning your own luxury camping/glamping holiday in Joshua Tree National Park.
I got lots of questions about where to go and places to eat in Los Angeles. In this blogpost is my compiled list of my top-10 places to hang out in LA and I hope this list will be helpful for friends/acquaintances who are making plans to visit LA in the near future.
We’ve been to Las Vegas so many times that we lost counts. In this note is my list of things to do in Las Vegas.
November is my favorite month to visit Yosemite. The peak autumn color frequently arrives at the beginning of the month and yellow and gold leaves often linger for weeks afterward. Sunlight has already reached winter angles, raking across the face of Half Dome in the late afternoon and turning El Capitan gold at sunset.
Prior to our adventure in Bahamas, we got to explore South Florida – Miami. Here we enjoyed all kinds of tropical fruits like ramputan, custard apple, longan, guava. We bought these fruits from the farmer market, “transport” all of them to Miami Beach, and slowly ingest + digest them on the beach. Miami Beach is just amazing!!! Deep blue water…white sand…rows and rows of palm trees…! Miami really lives up to its nickname – the Magic City!
