It’s almost my birthday and I am SO excited to be planning a vacation with Kamal. Due to his job in law enforcement, it’s quite tough to get days off. We always have to opt for a staycation. He was finally able to get off an entire week and now it’s my job to figure out how to fill up each of those days!
Hello my loves! If you follow me on Insta, then you probably remember seeing my mini staycation. My significant other Kamal and I ventured out to our favorite brunch spot Alice’s Restaurant in Woodside, California before heading into San Francisco. We had found Alice’s restaurant a few months ago while heading to the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. The restaurant is located in the middle of the woods and the delicious food is a plus. The Bay Area is well over populated hence, we find any reason to get away from the hustle of it all.
We stayed at the Loews Regency in SF and watched movies while ordering delectable food from room service. I’m huge on hotels with views and on the top of my priority list while choosing hotels is a room with a gorgeous view. I asked for a room with a view of the Bay Bridge at the Loews. The room had a minuscule view of the Bay Bridge, even from the 38th floor! When the guest attendant told me our room was on the 38th floor, I got excited only to later realize that the 38th floor was the lowest floor at the hotel; bummer! The rest of the building was occupied by other businesses of course. We hoped to spend the night, but Kamal got called into work later in the evening; just when I had jumped into my pajamas. Nonetheless, as long as the staycation lasted, it was enjoyable!
Hey guys! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, as we make our way into a new week ahead. My significant other and I decided to take a mini-vacation a few weeks ago, which you already know if you’ve been following me on Insta. We headed out to the Pacific coast and had some peaceful time to ourselves; one of those is always needed! Both of us are big on staying fit and active. Regardless if we’re at home or on vacation, we will always find time get a quick workout in. Right when we got to our hotel at the Ritz Carlton, we unpacked and headed to the gym! It was such a beautiful view and I had an amazing workout by the beach.
Doesn’t it feel like Christmas was yesterday and 2017 starts tomorrow?! I love Christmas but I’m not a huge fan of New Years. I feel as if New Years resolutions are over promised, but under delivered. Last year, I probably made a New Years resolution and completely forgot about it now. So rather than making a long list of things I ought to be and do, I wanted to simplify the resolution into one word: improve. My New Years resolution will be to continuously improve in all aspects of my life.
Kamal and I love to go on mini vacations. We both work a ton and sometimes it gets tough to hang out and plan activities together. The best way for us to enjoy our time together is by taking short vacations. This past week, we planned a mini Calistoga getaway. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already gotten a sneak peek of the trip.
