ABOUT TURKS & CAICOS

The Turks & Caicos Islands are a vacation dream come true! White sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, and tropical tranquility, what's not to love? The journey to paradise is just a quick two hour flight from Miami to Providenciales airport. 

The highlight of Turks & Caicos is the 12-mile Grace Bay beach, which is lined with hotels and upscale homes. Weather in Providenciales is beautiful year round, ranging anywhere from mid 70's to mid 80's and the locals are friendly and easy going. There are plenty of activities like the world's best diving, boat tours, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and of course, relaxing on the beach :-)

MY EXPERIENCE

In May of 2017, I traveled to Grace Bay Club with Foray Collective and had the most incredible experience! It was my first time in Turks & Caicos and I was really excited to explore this beachy new destination with my friends; Ruslana GeeJourdan Sloane, Rosa Crespo

turksandcaicos-somethingbeachy

After a long day of traveling from LA, we checked into our luxurious room in "The Estate" building, which had a large balcony overlooking the ocean and main pool. We watched the sunset and had dinner at one of the "Private Villa Collection" beachfront homes owned by Grace Bay Club. The modern villa was breathtaking and had amazing atmosphere to kick off the trip!

The next day, we headed to Bugaloo's Conch Shack to have lunch, dance to local music, and explore the conch studded island. We spent the entire day here hanging out (the photo opps with the colorful houses were just too good). After a day of sun, we headed to Grace Bay Club's Anani Spa for massages and facials. My facialist was really educated in the products she was using and my skin felt heavenly afterwards! I highly recommend going to the spa if you visit Grace Bay.

On our third day, we took a charter boat out to sea to check out some other islands. The sand was SO white and fluffy and the water was the prettiest shade of turquoise I have ever seen! We were also lucky enough to see a few dolphins and stingrays along the way. Once we wrapped up the boat tour, lunch was served local style at STIX on the beach. The remainder of the day was spent relaxing and swimming in the ocean. Dinner was set up beautifully on the beach by the Grace Bay Club team where we had delicious food, great conversation, and lots of wine to wrap up our final night.

Coachella 2017 Recap

Travel, LifestyleKelsey White2 Comments

Phew, I survived Coachella again! 

Foray hosted a 16 bedroom estate filled with fashion bloggers, along with a 200+ person event on Friday, April 14th.  Margo and Me, Kaitlynn Carter, Thrifts and Threads, Michelle Take Aim, Hunt For Styles, Evelina, Xenia Overdose, and Becca Tilley are just some of the bloggers that stayed at the house.  It was great spending time with girls in the industry and getting to know them better!

Most house guests arrived on Thursday evening just before our "welcome dinner", catered by Chef V. Veronica was our chef for the weekend and she cooked the most delicious, healthy meals to keep us fueled at Coachella. 

L'Oreal Paris was Foray's headline sponsor for the weekend, so they set up a "glam lounge" for house guests to get their hair + makeup done all weekend long...major life savor! UK retailer, boohoo, set up a "revolving closet" at the estate, where girls could pick out outfits every day.

On Friday, Foray x Vampped hosted the second annual Desert Oasis party. The event was sponsored by L'Oreal Paris, boohoo, and Her Campus, which all had awesome activations throughout pool area. We had Emily Ratajkowski host the event and she was really sweet...and so hot, seriously!

After the chaos we made our way to the festival grounds on Friday. Some of my favorite sets that night were Empire of the Sun, Phantogram, and Travis Scott - so bummed I missed Sampha and Glass Animals! The festival seemed quieter on Friday compared to the past few years I have been...

On Saturday, Foray x Funboy hosted a fiesta brunch, complete with a mariachi band. The massive buffet and a good laugh from the band was a perfect hangover cure. We spent the rest of the day relaxing by the pool and recovering. Before the festival, we stopped by the Victoria's Secret Oasis to say hello to some friends and stock up on some goodies! Around 5pm, a group of us headed to the festival to catch the sunset. We spent most of our time at Rose Garden and The VIP bar where you literally ran into everyone! Majid Jordan, DJ Snake, Future, and Martin Garrix were some of my favs that night. We topped off the night at Neon Carnival and danced the night away.

Let's be real - Sunday I was dead. Two full days of nonstop socializing, dancing, and singing.  I was totally beat...but we had to do one last day! We made it out one final time to see Galantis, New Order, DJ Khaled, Lorde, and Kendrick Lamar.

Esperanza Resort

TravelKelsey WhiteComment

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:

Sundance 2017

Travel, OutfitKelsey WhiteComment

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....

An unforgettable experience to L'Auberge de Sedona. 

I just got back from my trip to L'Auberge De Sedona and all I can say is what an UNREAL experience. This was the first getaway in a long time that I had the ability to be present in to moment, not thinking about emails, Instagram, texts, – whatever.

With organized activities like forest bathing, sound healing, apothecary blending and stargazing, the trip was unlike anything I have ever experienced.

Foray Collective organized the getaway and brought along bloggers Becca Tilley and Naila. The flight to Phoenix was a quick 1 hour 40 minutes, followed by a 2 hour drive to Sedona. Once we arrived at the resort, it was time for action! We came in hot at 4pm and went straight into adventure mode. Knowing that the sunset was at 5pm, we jolted to our rooms to change, then headed the Cathedral Rock – a spiritual vortex hike with an epic view. Time was against us, so we ran- no literally, ran to the top of Cathedral in 20 minutes. We got there just in time to take in the breathtaking sunset.

After the hike, we headed to 89 Agave for a much earned tequila tasting and Mexican feast. I especially loved the guacamole with pomegranate seeds, mango, and almonds – yum! We probably ate too much but hey, we earned it after that hike.

Our second day there was raining, but we made the most out of it with activities around the hotel property. First, we headed to sound healing, where our instructor lead us through a 1 hour meditative session using Himalayan jars creating healing sound vibrations. Not gonna lie, I was a bit giggly at first. But towards the ended I was in a state of complete relaxation.

Next off, we headed to forest bathing. And no – it’s not exactly what it sounds like. Forest bathing is a unique nature experience with reflective meditation. The 60 minute session begins with an instructor giving a brief introduction of the practice, followed by multiple exercises to practice being  present and mindful. The instructor gave each of us eco-friendly journals to jot down our thoughts during each exercise. We all agreed that it was a great and much needed moment to unplug from the chaos to get in touch with the healing aspects of nature.

With a clear mind, we headed to the L’Auberge Spa, where we had a custom blending bar to create personalized body scrubs and bath soaks – so cute! After quick nap, we polished off the day with a 3 course dinner at Cress – the food was delicious!

On our final day, it was time to take on The Grand Canyon. Seeing the canyon has been on my bucket list, so I was really looking forward to this! Up an at it at 7am, we headed there bracing ourselves for the 2 hour drive. Our Pink Jeep Tour guide Ted was insightful and taught us about the history of the Grand Canyon during our drive up. Once we made it to our first stop, I was ABSOLUTELY STUNNED. It’s one of those places you look at and go - Is this real?! What is life?! It’s literally mind-blowing to think something like that can be on this planet.

Overall, my experience at L’Auberge Sedona was eye opening. The group I traveled with was a great, and I am feeling so lucky to have had this experience. I will definitely be coming back to L’Auberge and the Grand Canyon when I need some mind clearing. I strongly recommended visiting! See my travel recommendations below:

STAY: L’Auberge de SedonaA 5-star resort experience. The rooms have wood burning fireplaces, outdoor showers, and the service is incredible. Definitely take advantage of the activities and amenities offered on site.

HIKE: Cathedral Rock – The Hike House is a great place to start planning your hike. They have trail guides set up on their website and in their store, and they can also set up a private guide to hike with you.

VISIT: Grand Canyon Pink Jeep Tours The jeeps are able to take you where you wouldn’t be able to access on foot, so you’ll get picturesque views and plenty of photo-worthy moments. 

EXPERIENCE: Forest Bathing, Sound Healing, Apothecary Blending – All of these activities are offered through L’Auberge.

RELAX: The Spa at L'Auberge  – Try the facial!

DINNER:Cress on Oak Creek –  For a special occasion.

DRINKS: 89 Agave or Etch Kitchen & Bar 89 Agave if you're looking for a more relaxed vibe. Chef Jimmy Day's food game at Etch is next level. 

WEAR: Warm Earth Tones, Silver Jewelry, Embroidered Jackets, Ankle Boots, Felt Hat, Activewear.

Recap: LA College Fashion Week

LifestyleLindsey CavanaughComment

10/22/16 Event Recap. It's fashion week all over! Not really, but I can actually say I may have enjoyed this more?! College Fashion Week was a great experience empowering female college students in the LA area.

I attended the event hosted by Her Campus with Kaitlynn, Evelina, and Tiana (our Foray co-founder). As we pulled up to the venue in Culver City, the line to get in was INSANE - we're talking hundreds. It was awesome to see so many young women coming to support a good cause. Inside the venue, there were multiple activation booths, so we had a chance to mingle around and interact with brands before the fashion show started.

The fashion show showcased REAL college girls and was broken up into 4 segments, each with different themes. Foray sponsored the festival portion of the show with the brand Delacy. The outfits were really cute and girls worked it! Seriously - they had major confidence. It's great to see such positivity and fearlessness in young girls.

A big thank you to the event sponsors: Foray CollectiveDryBarRebecca MinkoffVince Camuto,DelacyFitbitBertha Watches and Perfumania.

South Hampton, NY

TravelLindsey Cavanaugh10 Comments

A summer weekend in The Hamptons with Foray Collective. 

I just got back from The Hamptons—South Hampton to be exact, and it was the most perfect end-of-summer vacay. It's a classic American destination that lives up to every ounce of hype it gets.

I went with the Foray Collective crew - @kaitlynn_carter, @caraasantana, @margoandme, @beccatilley, and @racquel_natasha. It was my first time meeting Jenny aka Margo and Me and she is amazing - super genuine, sweet, funny, and SERIOUSLY stylish. All influencers stayed at Chris Burch's (as in Tory Burch's former husband) estate, Chris also owns Nihiwatu Resort on Sumba Island (#1 resort in the world where Kaitlynn and Brody got engaged) and I'm dying to go there.

The estate is in an upscale, quiet, and incredibly charming neighborhood and the grounds were massive. We're talking rose gardens (I couldn't get over the landscaping throughout), beautiful rooms, and the dreamiest pool area. It was basically a magical playground for adults. We had a chef who served farm-to-table goodness 24/7—plus wine, obviously.

We arrived Thursday and walked straight to the beach, then to Wolffer Estate Vineyard for sunset + more wine. Dinner and drinks were back at "our" house that night.

Friday, we took a catamaran out from Sag Harbor. We brought sandwiches and a cheese platter (essential!) and the girls color-coordinated bathing suits from Solid and Striped. They are my favorite brand to wear in The Hamptons because the Americana vibe is fitting and uber chic. We sipped rose and danced on the boat all day—it was the ultimate girl time! On the way back, we hit up Grindstone Coffee + Donuts which is a must if you're ever in Sag Harbor. MMMM!

Saturday, Foray hosted a 'Secret Garden Soiree' at our estate. We had about 60 people join and everything was in the backyard. There was a lounge area on the grass with boho pillows and blankets—the coziest summer afternoon. We had everything from a monkey to famous magician Sean Borland, who freaked us out (in the best way) all day. The event was a total success and too much fun!

After the party, the whole crew went to a packed dinner at Moby's in East Hampton. I'd highly recommend the margarita pizza and summer squash, plus the cocktail list was beyond amazing.

Sunday was our last day and we were sooo sad to leave. I HAD to stop at Tate's Bake Shop (I love their gluten-free cookies and buy them at Whole Foods on the reg). Becca and I swooped up coffee + GF blueberry muffins before saying our goodbyes.

I'm already daydreaming about Summer 2017 in The Hamptons. For now, back to the West Coast!

Amangiri, UT

A picturesque escape to Amangiri Resort in Utah with Kendra Scott x Who What Wear. 

I feel very lucky to be able to travel often, and though every trip is special in its own way, I recently took one of the most memorable of my life. I visited Amangiri, Utah, and words can't describe what a trip this was. Amangiri is a secluded, ultra-lux, and modern hotel that's built into the stunning rocks of rural Utah. This place has been on my bucket list ever since I saw photos on IG years ago, and it did NOT disappoint!

I went with the Kendra Scott team, Who What Wear, Be Social PR, and Foray Collective, and my girls @sophieelkus, @kaitlynn_carter, and @littleblackboots. Foray + Be Social coordinated most of the trip, and WWW acted as an editorial partner since they'llbepublishing a piece on our trip soon! I also just signed to be a social influencer with Be Social, and I'm thrilled to be part of that team. This whole experience was amazing to be included on!

Pulling up to the hotel—after a 5-hour car ride from Vegas, that's how secluded it is!—we felt like we were on Mars. It was jaw-droppingly gorgeous. My favorite part was the pool, especially the shallow area that surrounded a huge natural rock with seating. We learned that the hotel was all-inclusive (cue lots of amazing food, including delish vegetarian options, + prickly pear margs (which are the pretty pink drinks in the photos)!

The first night, we attended the Kendra Scott x Who What Wear Dinner. The Kendra Scott Fall '16 Collectionwas inspired by the wild outdoors and natural stones, so thejewelry paired perfectly with theUtah atmosphere. The KS team set up a long, wooden table underneath the stars, surrounded by the mountains. The rustic table heldbeautifulfloral arrangements, candles, and jewelry from the collection.

The best part of the night was a METEOR SHOWER during dinner! It was super low to the ground, a slow and sparkling 15-second flash. It was incredibly stunning and we were speechless. I was lucky to get a video of it on Snapchat (P.S. I'm only using Instagram stories now!). I'll never forget that dinner.

The next day, we started with a Kendra Scott brunch where we got to create custom jewelry by setting our own stones. I chose to make a silver ring with a white druzy stone thatI absolutely LOVE. After making our pieces, we had the opportunity to make a custom piece (+ a handwritten note) for women fighting breast cancer. This was extra special for me since both my grandma and mom have cancer. Such a sweet touch by the KS team. 

We alsovisited the spa and got mani/pedis with Kendra Scott's new polish collection. We then gotmassages which were SO relaxing. Jill and I may also have spent time laying in our bed with room service staring at our mountainviews. We followed that up by pool time. Ahhhhhh! Then we got the chance to visit Lake Powell for boat rides and stopped at some rock formations and jumping points to take photos. 

The final day we were so sad to leave, but managed more pool time before heading out. And we had to fit in a few more margaritas! 

I really hope that I get to revisit Amangiri, as the trip was simplymagical. I'm also excited to see the editorial of the trip go live on Who What Wear soon—keep an eye out!

Korakia, Palm Springs

Lifestyle, Outfit, TravelLindsey Cavanaugh1 Comment

A quick getaway with bebe and Foray Collective. 

A couple weeks ago, I was able to escape for a dreamy Palm Springs getaway hosted by Foray Collective and bebe. @blankitinerary @pamhetlinger @walkinwonderland @sophieelkus were there too which was great. PS has always been a favored impromptu destination of mine, and I love getting to know new girls from the industry—especially when they are extremely cool and smart.

We stayed at the Korakia Pensione which felt like a Moroccan paradise and had cute, intimate bungalow cottages. The whole space was unique and gorgeous—even the hotel’s fountain had rose petals floating in it. Everything was sooo peaceful and quiet. Since I manage Influencer Marketing at Foray, I actually coordinated the trip and luckily it turned out really well!

Day one I wore my favorite bebe outfit of the weekend, this off-the-shoulder black top. We relaxed at the pool all day and followed that up with in-room massages. Heaven! Happy hour was spent sipping champagne in the hotel’s courtyard where I finally got to meet (the super sweet) Pam and Sheryl. After HH, we headed to Workshop for a three-hour communal dinner with endless laughs...and drinks. Post dinner all the girls headed back to the pool for a night swim + more wine. So much fun!

Before leaving the next day, we attended the bebe brunch at the courtyard and had the BEST avocado toast (even better than what I’ve had in LA). It was farm-to-table food and you could really taste the freshness.

I could do this weekend over and over again. ‘Til next time, Palm Springs!

Pasea Hotel, Huntington Beach

Lifestyle, TravelLindsey Cavanaugh1 Comment

Huntington Beach just got a revamp. 

I recently got to have a girls staycation at the new Pasea Hotel in Huntington Beach along with one of my best friends Kaitlynn Carter. We loved everything about the hotel, from the Gray Malin prints to the ocean-facing Penthouse Suite we were lucky enough to stay in. The Pasea is the most beautiful mix of California cool + modern chic and it brings sophistication to the sleepy beach town. We fell in love with the place and had the best time.

We started our Saturday morning with a private yoga session on the hotel’s lawn overlooking the ocean. There’s not a better way to wake up than a peaceful workout overlooking the Pacific, and it set the tone for the whole weekend. We then had the most amazing spa experience with a massage followed by a saltwater hot tub. Yoga + spa time was much needed and it was the most relaxed I’ve been in months.

For dinner, we went to the hotel’s restaurant Tanner’s and were able to try just about everything thanks to the chef. The whole menu was incredible but the curry risotto was my absolute favorite. We obviously had to follow dinner up with drinks at the rum bar on the rooftop deck. The roof was stunning, and it was the most perfect day.

We heard there was shopping close to the hotel, so we knew we wanted to check that out before heading home Sunday. We found a brand new shopping center adjacent to the hotel with unique, charming restaurants and shops. We made our way to the champagne bar, then to Petals + Pop where you can make your own flower bouquets which was so fun and cute. I also noticed The Bungalow, a great beachside bar—like the popular one Santa Monica—that’ll open in August.

We left feeling so refreshed and I’ll definitely be coming back to this little slice of heaven on the California coast.

Oahu, HI 2016

With Foray Collective and The Salty Blonde. Andddd I'm back! This past week I flew to Hawaii alongside Foray Collective for a #FORAYgetaway with Halley Elefante aka The Salty Blonde - my beach babe Insta crush. Halley and I shot around the The North Shore and worked with some awesome emerging brands: Sea of Candi Swim, XIX Palms, and SWF Boutique.

This time we REALLY saw everything when we took a private helicopter tour over the island. Having a bird's eye view was definitely worth the motion sickness!

We shacked up at The Modern Honolulu (my fav hotel in Hawaii) and explored some local hubs. XIX Palms designer Allie mentioned that we MUST got to Koko Head Cafe - a culinary goldmine from Lee Anne Wong who was a contestant on Top Chef! And woah, the food did not disappoint.

The beautiful scenery and culture of Hawaii never fades. Hoping I am lucky enough to come back again soon! Until the next adventure...
