I’m in Miami baby…

Visiting Miami was the best thing that I did on my trip to explore Florida.
I’ve honestly never had the desire to visit Miami, just because I thought it was Vegas on the beach. But turns out, I was wrong and Miami turned out way better than expected.

I had the pleasure of staying at the cutest hotel on the street – The Gale. I truly feel in love with this gorgeous hotel. The fact that this hotel has pretty much everything you want – a rooftop pool & bar, and an Italian restaurant, Dolce, that is absolutely delicious. Not to mention, the rooms were so adorable. It completely matched my aesthetic with in real life and on my Instagram. haha. I got to relax, play, and eat all at The Gale hotel.
Even though The Gale is a block away from the beach, all guests have beach access included in their stay. Like I said, this hotel has everything you’d need.
Plus, all the staff were so friendly and professional and very inviting. Thats one of the things I look at when staying at a hotel, because the staff represent the hotel.
I am coming back to The Gale on my next trip to Miami, hands down. I am already missing everything about my trip!

The hotel to stay in when in Portland, OR.

I come to Portland every month, if not ever other week. This time I got to stay at the Dossier Hotel in downtown Portland. This place is a gem. As we arrived to Dossier we were greeted by the concierge and were told that Opal (restaurant inside the hotel) is having free ciders for the guests of the hotel. Just a little perk of staying at this hotel because from what I remember they have these kinds of perks every night!
The location of this hotel is walking distance to a lot of great places in the city, the mall is a few blocks away and Stumptown Coffee (my fav) is really close by as well. From my past experiences when staying in downtown, it is SO important that the location of the hotel is in the center of everything. Downtown traffic is no fun, anywhere. So when booking a hotel, I always make sure that its walking distance to the certain places I want to visit. I had a lovely time staying at this hotel, and would definitely come back! Huge thank you to Dossier Hotel for having me!

Freehand LA

I love weekend trips to LA, getting away from the cold in Seattle to the sunny weather in LA. This time I had a pleasure of staying at Freehand Hotel in downtown LA with my blogger bestie Vicky. This hotel is one of a kind, it is not your ordinary luxe hotel. Every room is unique in its own beautiful way. The rooftop pool is amazing, filled with plants everywhere and pink pool chairs & umbrellas. It’s so relaxing just to sit by the pool, read a book, and dip your toes in the heated pool. Even though your in the busy city, you can still feel relaxed. Also, not to forget the city view from there is just beautiful. If your coming to LA and want to know where to stay, this hotel is in the prime location. It is walking distance to so many cute cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, & shopping stores.

little getaway

Hi loves! Recently I visited LA. My home away from home. Even though I was trying to escape the rain from Seattle, I got to catch it in LA the last 2 days of my stay there. I absolutely love visiting new spots to check out in LA. Theres just way too many cute little places there. This time I got to visit this cute Flower + Coffee shop (my dream) in Venice called the Flowery Projects. It is in fact the cutest spot on that street. Anything that has to do with flowers and coffee, I am all there! So it was so nice to discover this place. I always love taking the drive to Malibu, its always so peaceful there. Unlike the rest of LA.
Heres a little glimpse of our trip….

Wknd in LA

Hi loves! As you may already know I made a quick trip to LA for the weekend. A few of my friends have made there move down tow LA, so I took a quick trip to visit them and obviously, just being back in the LA grounds. My home away from home.

HAPPY APRIL BABES!

Monday was beautiful in Seattle. Its finally starting to feel like spring here. Weather in March was just the worst here, so I’m praying that April is way better!

I took advantage of this weather and went out to Seattle for a light dinner at one of my favorite cafes – Mr West. This place has the best avocado toast, hands down. If you know me, you know I love, love, LOVE avocado toast. I could eat it all day longgg!

Have a fabulous week babes!

XO, Rosè…
