I just returned from a trip to Slovenia where I explored caves, hiked, and spent time in the main town of Ljubljana. Ambassador Jamie Harpootlian is a friend of mine for around 20 years. I was so happy and proud of her that I had to go visit. She has been at her post since February. The ambassador asked me what kind of vacation I desired. Architecture? Nature? Hiking? Art? She gave me so many options. My normal answer is art and architecture. However, she showed me everything Slovenia had to offer and more! We even enjoyed city life and ate incredible food.
Slovenia is a beautiful country located in Central Europe and shares borders with Italy, Austria, Hungary, and Croatia. It has a population of only 2 million people. Find out what I did during my trip.

Hi everyone, Colette is starting a team takeover on her blog to share some of our favorite topics! My name is Bianca and I am the Marketing Assistant at COCOCOZY/Chirpyest. I am taking over today to share with you one of my favorite travel destinations – the south of Spain! I stayed in Seville, Spain for a month while studying abroad in college. This city in southern Spain is full of rich culture and history. While there I also got to visit other cities such as Granada and Cádiz.
Known for their delicious sangria, flamenco dancing, and the hot heat – I am going to be sharing with you some of my favorite places to visit in the south of Spain.
Paris is a wonderful city for the summer months. There is an endless amount of culture and beautiful architecture. Paris is the best city to explore and discover something new. As most of you know, Paris is one of my favorite places to visit. My mom spends a few months in Paris every year. We recently stayed at an apartment owned by my friends, Anne Marie Midy and Jorge Almada, owners of the furniture house Casamidy. I’m still dreaming about it.
Paris is the best place to escape. There is so much history and art. The French architecture is beautiful. And of course, there is nothing like shopping in Paris. If you’re looking to plan your next trip, then see my list of the best summer rentals and hotels in Paris.

If you’re going to have a fun day at the beach, then you will need all of the essentials. There’s nothing worse than forgetting something and not realizing it until it’s too late. That’s why the COCOCOZY team is going to teach you how to pack your beach bag for maximum fun this summer.
The best time to visit Paris is in the late spring. Paris is covered in flowers–pale pinks and purples that create an enchanting atmosphere. It almost feels like you’re in a fairytale. While in Paris, I came across this restaurant that was covered in wisteria. Its full bloom only lasts a few weeks, but I found a few vines that started to bloom. The best time to see wisteria at its peak is from late April to early May. Wisteria is known to be a very fragrant flower. It’s almost hard to miss.
During my trip to Paris, I had a lovely dinner at Ralph’s. The restaurant is located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. It’s considered to be the heart of Paris because it is the home of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés quartier and the Luxembourg Gardens. The charming streets in the 6th arrondissement have shops, cafes, and restaurants that are a must while visiting Paris. See more details about my dinner at Ralph’s below and some dinnerware inspired by Paris.
