Evian Facial Spray

Ah, the Nordstrom Annual Sale has come and gone, and wouldn’t you know it, I didn’t get anything fashion related! There were SO many people talking about it, recommending which items to get and what the best deals were, that I seriously got overwhelmed and decided to skip the event altogether. But of course, Nordstrom was offering members a $10 off coupon on anything, and I couldn’t pass up not using that, so I browsed their website and found one deal…

Los Angeles Arboretum

LA is known as a city with SO many freeways, so many concrete roads, so many cars on the road and not enough greenery. But there are certainly pockets of space where gardens bloom.

O’casey’s Boutique Inn

Tucked away in a quaint residential neighborhood is a bed and breakfast called “O’Casey’s Boutique Inn“. I found this cute B&B on AirB&B when my friend Cara was still planning on joining me, and renting a room for two here was just slightly more expensive than going the hostel route for two people (seriously, $7 more). The location was also just 10 minute drive from the San Antonio River Walk. The room is absolutely charming with a slight rustic feel. There…
