glamping view

when the rain and the sun rays hit you at the same time

The drive, incredible. Winding roads blinking with prolonged rays of sunlight flashing through the windows. There’s something magical about sunlight and the drops of rain from a summer storm hitting your windshield in unison. The streets glowed in the evening’s sunset, slicked wet from the storm, reflecting the trees and the golden sky colors around them like a mirror. The trees bent over each side, creating a lush green archway over it all. In the distance, the cool blue ridge mountaintops of the Appalachians. The journey itself made the ride worthwhile. The destination, Laurel Point cottage courtesy of Glamping with Pets. What is glamping? Precisely how it sounds, a vacation stay somewhere between the remote charm of camping and a glamorous vacation.

ever heard of glamping?

I hadn’t either until they reached out asking if I’d be willing to test drive the program. And who could resist something named somewhere between glam and camping? When I travel, there are a few things which always top my priority list: good food, warm air, an incredible view, a taste of the local culture, bottles of champaign, moments of peace, and of course – a luxurious experience from room to expeditions. “When you’re glamping, there’s no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build. Whether in a tent, yurt, airstream, pod, igloo, hut, villa, cabin, cube, teepee or treehouse, glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.” – Glamping You had me at cabin and luxury. With destinations across the globe, Glamping is the evolution of travel where technology can connect people and experiences from all over the world. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III & iPHONE6 | location c/o:GLAMPING WITH PETS With the wonderfully chaotic lifestyle of a Creative Director by day and fashion blogger …

when a warm breeze blows

A week of nothing to do but soak in bliss. A stretch of sandy beaches, pina colada in hand, and endless tacos on the horizon. It’s vacation in Mexico! The latest adventure: outskirts of Cancun with a crew of 10 for the week. Welcome to the cabana life. All-inclusive is definitely the way to go, and there was no shortage of champagne and cocktails on our 10 day adventure in Cancun at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. A moment to breath fresh, unworried air – priceless. photography:FRIENDS | camera:iPHONE 6 | shorts:ONE TEASPOON | statement necklace c/o:STICKS + STONES | sunglasses:RAYBAN | marble bag c/o:LUXE BLOGGER | perfume c/o:MAISON MARGIELA Beach essentials for the trip: some statement jewelry courtesy of Sticks + Stones along with a new scent by Maison Margiela and of course – go-to RayBan sunnies. Advise for beach-centric vacations – don’t over pack. The likelihood of you changing out of a swimsuit and cover more than 1-2 times are little to none. Instead, focus on swimwear and lightweight pieces that work well over a …

Traveling to Egypt? Here are 10 things to pack you won’t want to forget

Hello blogosphere. I’ve just returned from a short holiday in Cairo, Egypt with friend and founder of My Spontaneous Travel Diary. Egypt is a beautiful country, rich with old culture and peppered with new outlooks on the world. We took a 3 hour camel ride around the Giza Pyramids, toured some of the oldest mosques in the world, visited the remains of King Tut’s tomb in the Cairo Museum, and got up close and personal with the locals at the legendary Khan el-Khalili bazaar. photography: MY SPONTANEOUS TRAVEL DIARY | travel backpack c/o:HUNTING WORLD NYC | travel sandals: NAKED FEET SHOES Itinerary + what to do in Egypt: Nile dinner cruise with belly dancing and Tanoura show Giza Pyramids, City of the Dead and the Great Sphinx via camel ride The Citadel Mosque of Ahmad Ibn Tulun The Coptic Museum with King Tut’s exhibit Khan el-Khalili bazaar I could spend a lifetime describing each place from the sights and smells to the feel of the ancient stones beneath my fingertips.
