I’ve been jet-setting from coast to coast. One of my favorite summer spots is my friend AM’s Hamptons backyard. Her home is located in East Hampton. I spent the Fourth of July weekend lying by the pool and galavanting around the town. For the summer holiday, I helped set up AM’s festive red, white, and blue tablescape. And when I say “helped” I mean all I did was spray-paint the lanterns red. AM did an amazing job hosting and curating a stunning Fourth of July lunch. While I was in the Hamptons, I noticed a lot of fashion trends and even picked up on a few coastal home decor finds. Here’s my product list of trending products I loved during my time on the East Coast.

Exploring Lisbon’s culinary delights is an adventure in itself. The vibrant dining scene caters to every palate. While I did not get the opportunity to physically sample these three extraordinary restaurants in Lisbon, their reputations and appeal grabbed my interest. Hopefully, when I go to Lisbon again I’ll be able to go.
Join me on a virtual tour of Lisbon’s trending restaurants. Despite never having set foot in these places (I actually did take a photo inside one) their intriguing menus, one-of-a-kind ambiance, and delectable cuisines promise an amazing dining experience.
I can tick off another location from my list of dream destinations to visit. Does anyone else have a list of places to visit? A few weeks ago I went to Lisbon, Portugal! Lisbon has everything you could ask for. The city has a rich history, vibrant streets full of tile and stone, and beautiful architecture at every corner. Today’s post is the first of my Lisbon trip. I had to break it down into several posts since I have so much content. It was so fun to wander through charming cobblestone streets, and fully immerse ourselves in the vibrant culture of this captivating Portuguese capital.

I’ve returned from my first trip of the summer. I went to Lisbon Portugal. Even though it was a short trip, I have A LOT of content to share. I might have to break it down into 3 to 4 blogs. So get ready…
There’s one aspect that never fails to overwhelm me before a trip: packing! So I messaged my friends Rachel Bendavid and Leah Corselli for some packing tips. Rachel, an expert traveler, managed to travel to Italy for two weeks with only a carry-on! Impressive! On my last trip to Slovenia, I overpacked. So this trip I wanted to take Rachel’s advice and pack light. Finding the balance between carrying enough options to suit my moods and the desire to travel light is not easy. In the past, my suitcase would burst at the seams with an excess of clothes. So here’s my guide (and Rachel’s tips) for packing your carry-on for summer vacation.
Last summer I took a trip to the east coast and went island hopping. This year, I’ll be doing the same thing. I’ll be traveling to Martha’s Vinyard, Nantucket, and the Hamptons. So as Memorial Day approaches, I figured it was time to sit down and figure out where I’ll be staying while in Nantucket. With its rugged beauty, charming town, and pristine beaches, this captivating island off the coast of Massachusetts is one of my favorite summer getaways. I sat down and narrowed down the best hotels in Nantucket that I’m considering staying at for the summer.

Have you ever wondered where the rich and famous travel during the summer? The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is definitely a big name in the hospitality world. Located at the southern tip of Cap d’Antibes on the French Riviera, it is one of the most famous hotels. It was a 19th-century estate that was transformed into an exclusive winter writer’s retreat back in 1889.
Over the years, it has welcomed some of the most notable names like Elizabeth Taylor, F. Scott Fitzgerald, the Duke and Dutchess of Windsor, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kendall Jenner. It recently made headlines because Sofia Richie married music executive, Elliot Grainge. Take a tour of the dreamy hotel below.
The COCOCOZY team put together a travel guide to one of my favorite places to visit in California. A few months ago I went on a weekend trip to Santa Barbara and had the best time! I short ride from Los Angeles was great to get out of my bubble in Beverly Hills and explore a different city. Santa Barbara has beautiful weather, a gorgeous coastline, and a handful of great activities! Get ready because you may just want to explore Santa Barbara right now.
The photo above is from one of my favorite restaurants called Bella Vista. It’s now closed. It had a beautiful view of Butterfly Beach. It never reopened after the pandemic. My fingers are crossed that it opens up again!
It was snowing in California! My mom sent me a photo of sleet covering her front lawn. I’m a true Californian. So when I see snow in California…it’s truly shocking! (I’m sure my east coast readers are laughing at me right now). Since a winter cold front has taken over Los Angeles, I started looking up places to travel for spring break. I thought to myself…if I can go anywhere, then where would I go? Let me state the obvious…planning a trip last minute for spring break is EXPENSIVE! So my dream to book a flight out of here is just a dream for right now. But if you’re someone who is only a few weeks away from a warm vacation on an island or a cozy retreat in the mountains, this blog is to help you.
Here’s my shopping guide to help you pack for your spring break trip!
What is Spring Break?
Spring break is a week of vacation (sometimes longer) in the middle of the spring season. It’s usually around the end of March. The purpose of the holiday is to give students (and adults) a break from their crazy school schedules. It’s a week to relax and unwind.
