A PALM SPRINGS QUICKIE

I'm typically not the type to go on last-minute, unplanned trips, but sometimes in life you gotta just let go and live. Joey and I woke up on Saturday morning and decided that we wanted to go get some sun and recharge in Palm Springs - so we packed our bags and just drove. Hotels were pretty packed due to the tennis tournament that was going on but we were able to book a last minute trip via Hotel Tonight at the V Palm Springs - a new hotel right by the Ace. They're still under construction due to expansion, but it was perfect because we had a pool all to ourselves. V chill. V romantic. V Palm Springs. Palm Springs is...

A Two Day Itinerary For Carmel-By-The-Sea: Lovers Edition

carmel
All photos by Amy Marietta and Joe Hodges Carmel-by-the-Sea, what a beautiful, magical yet indescribable gem. I thought I had an idea of what to expect due to my grandparents who have been telling me for years about how much they absolutely love going on their annual Carmel trip, but it is truly a place you need to experience for yourself. Joe and I arrived with a list of recommendations, excited to see what everyone was talking about and ready to create our own memories. Upon arrival, we felt as though we weren't in California anymore. For the first time in a long time I felt completely relaxed, rejuvenated and as if I was on a retreat due to the clean, crisp air, breathtaking views,...

For this project we did a tour of my favorite spots in LA which you can see below and on their Instagram @asmallworld.  To learn more about joining the ASW community, check out their website and Instagram for more information.

Venice In Velvet

Top: Ramy Brook /Backpack: Armadio / Scarf: A.M. Club / Phone case: A.M. Club x Case App   Venice, California -  famous for it's heavy scent of fresh ganja and eclectic vibe due to the extensive mix of street performers doing backflips, the "Freak Show" crew standing on the board walk, the meat heads pumping iron at Muscle Beach, and the psychics who sometimes give you free advice. (Ya get what ya pay for.)  Then you have the musicians, hipsters, skaters, rollerbladers, surfers and high AF people.     Venice definitely does not lack character and is a great place to go when you want to switch up the routine. So many cool restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, boutiques and bars - it's just lovely - especially...

Amoeba Music – Good For The Soul

Scarf: A.M. Club / Jacket and pants: Metisu    Photos taken by Brad Ernske at Amoeba Music in LA   One never forgets their first trip to Amoeba - or any trip to a record store for that matter. There is something so wondrous, magical, and inspiring about being surrounded by countless vinyls that were created by inspiring artists from around the world. Works of art brought to life from the hearts and souls of artists - and we get to create memories to their words and sounds for eternity. Artists have this eternal power to create a vibe - it's truly magical, to me. Because of them we are able to feel so much more passionately.   Legends and their spirits never die. And that to me, is...
