I love weekend getaways! I’m sure this comes as no surprise to anyone who frequents my blog. Having a busy schedule doesn’t always allow for a full blown vacation, but something about getting away for a few days just makes the biggest difference if I want a bit of relaxation and fun.
Since most of the time these getaways are completely spontaneous, I make sure to keep some of my favorite essentials in my weekender, like super comfy set of PJs, a good book and of course some beauty products like this mini sized Holiday Kit from Burt’s Bees. It contains all the things I need in a convenient and very easy to travel with packaging which is a great plus as I like to travel light when it comes to trips like this one. Let me tell you, after walking around in cold and crisp air, my hands and feet appreciated a little moisture at the end of the day:) I love Coconut Foot Cream because I’m a huge fan of anything that contains coconut oil, and the Hand Salve restored my dry hands and cuticles in no time! The Vanilla Bean Lip Balm saved my lips from drying up and cracking because let’s face it, dry lips are not a good feeling or a cute look on anybody! Having tried and loved these products, I’m thinking of getting this set for all my girls! So compact and cute, I think it’ll be a perfect stocking stuffer!:)
This time around we decided to go a very familiar and beloved route, driving up the beautiful California coast. From San Simeon and Big Sur to Carmel, it’s truly amazing what California has to offer! The views of the ocean from Big Sur alone take my breath away every time!
Emil and I love going to familiar places, but we always try to do something new whether it’s staying at a new hotel or trying a new restaurant. This time, it happen to be Sierra Mar at Post Ranch Inn. I fell in love with this place before I even tried the food because of the beautiful view it offers. It really is unbeatable. The fact that the food was exceptional was just a cherry on top! 🙂
