Seattle Dreaming

Check out this awesome time-lapse video by F-Stop, showcasing Seattle in all its glory. Talk about making me homesick!

They did an excellent job really highlighting the beauty that seems to be overlooked by so many due to the rain. Check out F-Stop’s website + Vimeo channel for more gorgeous Emerald City images + videos!

America the Beautiful

Joshua Tree California
In honor of Earth Day, I have decided to start a new series on the blog: America the Beautiful. I love traveling around to new places and discovering the beauty it holds, be it natural or man made. I decided to start with Joshua Tree National Park, located about an hour outside of Palm Springs, California. I had an awesome time hiking around there this weekend, taking in all the incredible sights and trails. It is such a unique area, and the photos don’t do it justice. If you ever vacay to Palm Springs, I highly suggest taking a couple hours to check out this gorgeous park.

I cannot get over how gorgeous the desert landscape is. So unique and beautiful in its own way.

The brown color of the rocks and ground mixed with the various green colors of the plants makes for a gorgeous color palette.

Happy Earth Day! Don’t forget to look at the beauty around you today, and every day!

Travel Bug

You all know that Seattle is more than a city to me, it’s my home that I love so much.
I also LOVE my second home, Los Angeles.

And, even though I just returned from New York, it has quickly become one of my most favorite places.

Jess in the City (My NY Recap)

I can’t believe it is a week since I jetted off for an amazing weekend in the big apple. I had the best time seeing old and new friends, exploring and just taking in everything New York has to offer. What a fun city, and I totally fell in love with so many parts. Check out some of the highlights below.

Walking the Brooklyn Bridge was definitely a highlight.

Yes, it may seem weird that my friends took me to get tacos in NY, but the vibe of this place was awesome (and the tacos were pretty good too!)

Ended the trip with Soul Cycle, blowouts and a goodbye dinner with the lovely Elizabeth of Bonjour + Hola. Such a great hostess. (All I can say is thank you Alt Summit for introducing me to this señorita. “HOLA!”)

Coming next week, my Mast Brothers exploration with Christy (who is FANTASTIC.)
