Nate and I spent last weekend in Carmel to unwind, check out some local shops, did a little wine tasting, dine at some of our favorite restaurants when he first moved out here from New York and we even tried to take a walk on the beach. Yeah, the latter was bad idea. It was very cold! Even though the sun was gorgeously shining, the temperature was nowhere near warm and I can feel the chilly breeze furiously blowing against my leggings. Luckily I was layered on top with a thermal tee, a chambray top and knit wool sweater that kept me pretty cozy for most of the day…
This weekend we’ll be staying in Vegas for business but I’m very excited to check out the shops and eat my heart out at all of our favorite restaurants. We typically like to stay on the strip but if you’re ever going on a busy weekend and want to stay in Vegas on a budget, two of my favorite off the strip hotels (but very close by) are the Orleans Casino Hotel and the Platinum Hotel & Suites which is a gorgeous boutique hotel with suites from 950 to 2,200 sq feet for a fraction of the price compared to most hotels on the strip.
I hope whatever you decide to do this weekend, you’re spending it with someone you love. Have a warm and wonderful long weekend!
