We made it to the Maldives! We traveled for over 30 hours but WOW was it worth it! We are staying at the St. Regis Vommuli resort in the Maldives for our first few days here. I wanted to share some pictures of our room because it is AMAZING! We are staying in one of the Sunset Overwater Villas with a private pool! This resort opened up in November of 2016 so everything is really nice and new. We snapped a few pics of our room and then headed out to explore the resort. More pictures and blog posts coming soon! And how pretty is this dressi’m wearing! I am obsessed! We also posted our first vlog from this trip, I will share it below!
I wanted to do a post sharing pictures we took camping while we were in Kauai! It was SO fun! I don’t really like to camp very much but usually if I am on a trip I don’t say no to a lot of things because 1) I probably won’t get a chance to do that specific thing ever again and 2) it always makes for a good memory. Our friends Rob and Sam took us to this amazing spot and we spent the night talking and getting to know each other better. I love meeting Internet friends! We all slept in tents and Sam cooked us a yummy vegan pasta dinner over the fire. I don’t think I actually slept at all because we shared a tent with Parker’s sister Cassidy (and her husband) and she SNORED. ALL. NIGHT. So loud!!!! I was also convinced someone was outside our tent walking around all night so and I kept waking Parker up and reminding him why taking me camping is always a bad idea… In the morning the whole valley below us was filled with clouds and it was the prettiest and most magical view. This was my favorite things we did in Kauai!
This loose comfy dress is on sale! It’s from my clothing store :)
Lauren and Tara eating the cutest breakfast with a view of the Taj Mahal.
This outfit I have on is sold out but I loooove this similar dress! It’s under $30 and the back is SO CUTE!
We experienced a mock Holi Festival! We threw colors, danced and ate really yummy food!
Parker’s first henna tattoo!
Craziest dessert at our ITC hotel in New Dehli. It took like 20 minutes to prepare and we seriously ate it in like 30 seconds! It was a whole bunch of different flavored sauces and chocolate and I don’t even know what else but I do know that it was DELISH!
We went to INDIA! We were invited to go on this trip with Beautiful Destinations and OBVIOUSLY we said yes. The trip ended up being right after our Bora Bora trip so we flew straight from there to India, and when I say straight I mean from Bora Bora to Tahiti, Tahiti to New Zealand, New Zealand to China, and China to India! It was such a long travel day(s) but so worth it. We stayed at the different ITC Hotels all over India and had such an amazing experience. We went to New Dehli, Agra, and Jaipur throughout the week and the long bus rides were so worth it once we got to each location. I wish I hadn’t taken so long to write this post so I could remember more specific details!!! Good thing we vlogged it all! Since India I have been to Salt Lake, Colorado, and Hawaii so my brain is frazzled and I seriously don’t remember what I did yesterday… Both Parker and I have been so busy with a million different projects and trips and it can be so hard to live in the moment with so much going on but I feel like I truly embraced and enjoyed every single second of this trip to India and I feel so grateful to be part of such a great experience. As much as I loved India and everything we did there, my favorite part of the trip was the people we were with. It was so inspiring to be with other creators who make such amazing content and I loved meeting these new friends. The people of India were also very kind! I don’t consider myself to be a people person and I am very shy but lately I have realized that as much as I like to travel and see new places I REALLY like to travel and meet new people because I love to hear their stories. This was one of my all time favorite trips because of the people we were with and the culture we got to experience. We visited the Taj Mahal, experienced a mock Holi Festival, mock wedding, and visited some of the crazy street markets. I am so grateful to Beautiful Destinations, the Luxury Collection, and ITC Hotels for this incredible experience and I am so grateful for all YOU guys because without you I would not have these opportunities to travel and see the world. I love every single one of you!
