Parker Palm Springs Part Two

I feel like I had too many photos in my last post so here are the rest of the photos I took of the Parker and the lovely grounds early one morning. I almost did the ice bucket challenge while we were there but no one has challenged me *Antz doesn’t count because he didn’t […]

Parker Palm Springs

We haven’t made a big fuss about our wedding anniversary since our pop up dinner when we celebrated ten years. This year I wanted to do something fun but not overwhelming or too stressful. It’s hard to come up with new ideas within driving distance since we’ve done just about everything there is to do […]

Our London photo shoot with Lee Robbins

I got the photos from our photo shoot with Lee!! They turned out better than I imagined. I love the shadow, the editorial style, the color contrast…I am so f-ing happy! We had a blast at the Ace Hotel, walking around the cool hipster Shoreditch neighborhood in east London. Lee is magnificent! Book him if […]

Room 602 at The Lloyd Hotel Amsterdam

As promised here is the Honeymoon Suite at the Lloyd Hotel. We had so much fun in this room. Our view of the harbor and the clock tower felt like we were on a film set. The rustic A-line roof was perfectly spooky and austere. Olivia loves taking baths so she hopped right in. We […]

Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Centre

Our experience at our first hotel in Amsterdam was meh. We checked out bright and early and hopped on the tram *along with all 8 pieces of our luggage* and headed to our next hotel. The Lloyd reminds me of The Overlook hotel in The Shining. It had creepy long corridors and used to be […]

Violently Happy in Europe: London Day Two

Oops, we totally overslept on day two. We must still be on LA time but no worries we only missed going to tea and a cruise on the Thames river, it was too chilly for it anyway. I returned the Audi to the rental place just in time and we spent the rest of the day on […]

Violently Happy in London: Day One

This is my second trip to London and Antz third time. You would think we’ve been there, done that but oh no! This city has changed since the last time I was there *I have changed a lot too!* I reserved a Mini Cooper at the car rental place since it would be perfect to […]

London Calling

Last time we went to London was in 2003. We were there for only four days. I didn’t have an itinerary planned so we just winged it and did all the usual tourist things. We used a travel agency *I’m surprised they are still around* to book our trip so we stayed at a corporate […]

More Hotel Dramarama in Amsterdam

As a fan of the Roaming gnome, I began my travel search with Travelocity but for some reason they wouldn’t allow me to book the airline I wanted and the same itinerary was more expensive. Liv’s Godfather Stephen recommended using Expedia which they used for their trip to Europe last year so I gave them […]

Happy Birthday Lizzie!

My birthday is always a whirlwind of radness, drinks and fun. My birthday also coincides with the first day of Spring and International day of Happiness. We took a pre-birthday trip to the beach on Wednesday. The weather was nice but the water was ice cold. Of course that didn’t stop our beach babe from […]
