City Crush: Fairmont San Francisco

I just did a whirlwind site tour with a client yesterday in San Francisco.  5 Hotels in 5 hours and the day was filled with unexpected surprises.
It had been a while since I saw the Fairmont San Francisco (home to the famous Tonga Room) and I have to say – I was delighted with what I saw.  Our sales person showed us the typical meeting space, but I wanted to see something unique.  
We came into…

City Crush:: My Carry-On Bag

I’m heading to Utah for an event in a couple of days and thought it would be fun take a peak into my carry-on bag. 
I have a lululemon bag very similar to this.  It fits everything perfectly.  There is a spot for my laptop and all the other travel necessities.  I’ll definitely be carrying my laptop with me, but these are things that I always travel with.  I’m completely spoiled by my Dr….

City Crush: West Coast Getaways

Ready for another long weekend?  I know – I really should have posted this last week since we just had a long weekend.  But, we have a 4 day one coming up right before conference week.  These 3 little jewels are perfect for a 2 day, 3 day, and 4 day getaway too.  You can definitely bring the kiddos to these locales, but after you look at the pictures, you might want to call grandma and grandpa…

City Crush:: Paris

I thought since today was Valentine’s Day, it just seemed appropriate that Paris be this weeks City Crush.  I’ve been dreaming about this city of love (and pinning it like crazy).  I’ve even come up with this idea that I need to learn French.  The last time I was in Paris was when I was in high school.  That was a long LONG time ago.  I’m sure it’s changed a ton.  I have very fond…

What do you consider the ultimate luxury?  I personally love a great sitting area, where I can put my feet up and have a nice glass of wine.  (A huge tub is also a plus!)  Confession: I also love the larger size shampoos and…

City Crush:: Phoenix/Scottsdale

I love heading to Phoenix.  It’s always fun to visit and I have a great excuse to make it over a few times a year with friends and family in the area.  It’s also such a short trip from the Bay Area.  The one drawback with having family in a place that offers so many amazing hotels…you need to sneak away for a few additional days so you can chill by the pool and drink one of those fruity frozen…

City Crush :: San Francisco

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a fantastic new year.  I spent time in Arizona soaking up the warm sun with family and friends.  It was a nice change from the cold of the bay area and it was an amazing time.
I’m starting a new series – “City Crush.”  I’m picking one city a week and will showcase places to stay, where to eat, things to do and some fun finds.  I thought this would be…
