After I got home from my last trip to New Zealand and Australia, I've had a lot of people ask to me write this post, so here we go! Let's talk about how I plan my trips. ✈️
If you want to spend money, Los Angeles is the place to go. Full of celebrity homes and neighborhoods like Beverly Hills and Hollywood (ever heard of it?), L.A. doesn't exactly scream "cheap". However, if you're willing to not live like a Kardashian, there are some pretty cool things to do in and around the city that are the ultimate kind of frugal. Oh yeah, I'm talking free.
If you’re looking for a romantic honeymoon in California, I’ve got you covered! Between beaches, wine, and warm weather - you and your new spouse will both find something to love in the Golden State. Just don’t forget your sunblock, the California sun can be tricky. Even if the clouds are out, the UV rays can still burn your skin - trust me, I know!
While I have absolutely NOTHING against a few days (or weeks) spent in Disney World or Universal Studios, sometimes it’s nice to steer away from the theme park life and enjoy a simple vacation in the sun.

Ah, San Francisco. The city of winding streets, gorgeous architecture, and the best sourdough bread in the country (IMO). It's been a while since I've been able to explore San Fran, but I always try to stay up to date on the best food and restaurants around so I know where to go the next time I get the chance! If you're looking where to eat in San Francisco, here's to you:
If you’re anything like me and my sister, winter gets old about the second week of January. We are ready for sunshine and suntans WAY earlier than most of the U.S. is, so winter always feels like it drags on FOREVER.
Since BYU (my alma mater of a few months now) only sets aside one weekday for spring break (yes, it's true) we usually don’t bother trying to squeeze in a vacation, but this year my sister, Rose, and I decided we would do anything to get away from Utah’s on again-off again relationship with snow and head to the nearest beach town we could get to: San Diego.
