Ah Cabo, you never disappoint! Growing up in Southern California, Mexico has become my go to destination for a quick, beachy getaway. 

I recently stayed at Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas with Becca Tilley and Kaitlynn Carter for a last minute getaway. The hotel was gracious enough to host us for the weekend and we had the best experience staying there. My room was one of their newly renovated casitas that had a beautiful view, complete with a jacuzzi on our balcony. Can you say dreamy!?

The service at Esperanza is 5-star and the staff goes above and beyond expectations to make you feel special. The hotel grounds are spacious, peaceful, and luxurious - perfect for a special occasion or relaxing girl's weekend! There are also a a variety restaurants on the property that service fresh and local cuisine. We quickly became friends with the executive chef, Guillermo who cooked the most amazing meals every night!

There are a ton of activities to do around the resort and in town. We especially enjoyed beach yoga, spa massages, tequila tasting, and camel riding. Yes, camel riding - hah! I have to say this was the highlight of our trip because we were laughing uncontrollably the entire time. 

We also checked out Esperanza's newly opened property, Chileno Bay. The vibe is a little more modern and laid back compared to Esperanza's classic, luxury feel. The clean, all white design and Instagram worthy bar are just a few of the things that draw in a hip crowd. This hotel just opened, but I have a feeling I'll be seeing it all over Instagram real soon!

Thinking of planning a trip to Cabo soon? DO IT! Here are a few of my recommendations:

Park City, round 2! Foray Collective made their annual trip to Park City for Sundance Film Festival this year and it was an absolute blast. We rented a cozy Air BNB in Heber and hosted Becca Tilley, Marianna Hewitt, and Brittany Xavier (aka Thrifts and Threads). Kaitlynn Carter, Sophie Elkus, and Witney Carson were also in town for the weekend, so we were able to hang with them a bunch too!

Sundance is a crazy time in Park City. Main Street is filled with chaos and industry people buzzing around town. We made our way to handful events like the Robert Redford Sundance Kickoff Party, Nylon x Dream Hotels EventTone it Up Wellness Lounge, TAO Pop Up, and Chefdance. We also visited the Midway Ice Castle Park which is an absolute MUST to go see. The Montage Deer Valley also has a cute s'mores station set up everyday at 4:30pm that is open to the public. 

It was snowing hard every day which made for amazing photos, but man, it was a hassle getting around town. We had some good laughs trying to navigate the snow - where is a guy when you need one?!!

Foray will definitely be coming back next year (and hopefully seeing more movies!) I'm already missing our cozy cabin and all of my girls! 'Til next year....
