Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share one of my outfits that I wore (twice) during our visit to Palm Springs this past weekend. While my normal style is very edgy/feminine/boho, I felt like being extra girly for this trip. Continue reading for links to what I’m wearing and for a description of the amazing “Mirage” house that we checked out while we were there!
Just got back from a Bachelorette Party in New Orleans, and I’m so excited to share what we did! Also, I had a lot of trouble trying to figure out what to pack. I hope my packing guide helps you at least a little bit!
I can’t believe 2016 is coming to a close. It’s been such an amazing year and I’m sad to see it go, but I’m so excited to find out what 2017 will bring! Today I wanted to share with you what happened with The Nomis Niche over the past year and what to expect in the new year 🙂
Our last big trip of the summer was to Kentucky for my good friend’s wedding. But, before heading down to Somerset, I stopped in Lexington to visit the place I called home for four years while attending the University of Ketnucky (Go Cats!)
Every time we go back to California I fall in love with it even more. Being by the ocean and enjoying time with friends is the perfect get away ad even though we love living in Las Vegas, it gets a little harder every time we have to leave the Golden State.
There’s just something about being next to an ocean that makes me feel at ease. Then again, who doesn’t feel that way?! We just returned from Laguna Beach and I already can’t wait to go back! We were visiting my sister and brother-in-law and I swear, they really know how to show their guests a good time! Here’s what we did…
I just got back from Miami and I’m already packing for a weekend getaway to Laguna Beach! We’ll be traveling a lot this month, but that’s what the summer is for right? So today I wanted to share with you where we stayed, what we did and what I wore in beautiful South Beach. Don’t forget to check out the video at the end!
Parte dos of our Costa Rica voyage. Again, I can’t tell you what an amazing time we had.We stayed at the Riu Guanacaste Hotel and really took advantage of all that they had to offer. The staff hosted games up by the pool, a nice quiet beach, nightly shows, etc. They actually did a “Las Vegas” themed show one night. That was pretty hysterical seeing their interpretation of what our entertainment is like. A lot of Ricky Martin? We shook our bon bons anyway.
After a few chill days we decided to get adventurous. We went snorkeling and saw tropical fish and 12 sting rays! The rain forest excursion was probably my favorite part. The butterfly garden was beautiful, but despite my best efforts no butterfly landed on my finger. Like… we traveled all this way and you bugs can’t even give me my Snow White moment?! You think you’re all that cuz you can fly? You were a creepy crawly caterpillar like a month ago chump.
We spotted some hummingbirds too, but those suckers are too quick and apparently extremely camera shy. And… oh my gosh… ziplining through the canopy! Ahh! Flying by trees close enough that you could touch was an experience. I’ll never forget. I think even if I clonked my head on one of them I would still be grinning from ear to ear.
I also tried out their beauty secret. You sit in their natural sauna for about 10 minutes then rub the volcanic mud all over your body. Once it dries you wash it off and then sit in the natural hot springs for another 20 minutes. It’s probably a load of crock, but that didn’t stop me from slathering that hot mud all over myself. One Canadian woman said I looked like a swamp monster. So yeah… that was a huge ego boost. (I’m not being sarcastic. #SwampGoals)
But the best part of this excursion was the waterfalls!!! I’ve been saying forever that all I wanted to really do on this trip was hop into a waterfall. Did it. Loved it. Want to do it again immediately.
I know this is a lengthy post, but I just want to share everything with you all! I’ve also got another outfit post coming tomorrow morning. So be sure to check that out too! As always, thanks for checking out The Nomis Niche and reading through my ramblings. If you’re going to Costa Rica anytime soon let me know! Maybe I could help you out with some pointers.
