Hello Darlings, Do you know those moments when you stare blankly at your computer screen for 10 minutes at a time with nothing but background noise keeping you distracted. Not a single idea seems to come to mind, no clever proposal to compose, and even motivation seems to have passed by. You’ve officially hit a rut!

I am typically not the one to discuss the challenges of  working for yourself  but I feel like this one many women can relate to. While I do not hold a traditional job and may not be able to relate to every profession, I do feel that progressively more women face more pressure that leads to this very moment. The moment where you feel stuck in a rut and everything becomes a daze of responsibility, with absolutely no joy. It’s like you  go into cruise control mode.

Hello Darling, Despite the number of times that I pack and unpack in a month, I am not sure if I will ever master the true art of it. Asking a woman to decide what she’s going to wear days ahead is as unlikely as asking her to decide on one pair of shoes when shopping. While I wholeheartedly love the process of arriving at the airport and checking in my luggage, the struggle of actually getting packed comes with every trip.

What To Pack For Hawaii{I AM WEARING: Line & Dot Summer Pleats Dress}

As this was my first time visiting Hawaii, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect nor what to pack. Some vacation destinations like Miami require a well thought out wardrobe of summer dresses and heels; while a low key destination like Vieques Island calls for only sandals. In the case of Hawaii, I discovered that it was a combination of both.

Hello Darlings, At the first sight of snow the suitcases were packed and we were on our merry way seeking sunshine. After a direct 5 hour flight with WestJet we landed in Phoenix airport where the sun was shinning and the car was awaiting for us. After a 15 minute drive, we were at the beautiful W Scottsdale — our home for the next 4 days. With a vibrant art scene, fabulous golf courses and magnificent resorts Scottsdale was described by New York Times as a “desert version of Miami’s South Beach.” And rightfully so! It is no wonder that within the past few years, Scottsdale has become the “it” destination that offers refinement that Vegas doesn’t and quaint alternative to South Beach. In the four days that we were there it quickly became a favorite!

While originally expecting calm and quite —  the city took us by surprise! The “new” Scottsdale now competes with Palm Springs, Las Vegas and South Beach and what do they all have in common? Fun — endless supply of parties, lounges and clubs. Culturally it is also a hub for arts and great architecture especially that influenced directly by  Frank Lloyd Wright. So while a horse ranch and endless stretches of dessert are never too far, in the midst of it all is a bustling urban oasis that not only knows how to spoil but entertain. If you’re looking for horse back riding, followed by Moët & Chandon and swanky parties and delicious restaurants then you’ve found your new destination. To say that it’s unique would be an understatement and to admit that I haven’t been charmed would be a lie.
