Looking for the perfect Instagram spot, locations for engagement shoots, or just a nice place to take photos? Here are my favorite spots that I’ve been and the spots at the top of my list to go to on a future trip!
I’ve been visiting Santa Barbara my entire life, I lived here for 4 years during college, and now my parents own a condo here. So I consider myself a bit of a local now and it is one of my favorite places in the world!
I have eaten at most of the restaurants around Santa Barbara…
A wonderful event full of girl bosses sponsored by Danielle Gibson Events. This year it was in beautiful Sonoma, California at K2 Ranch! There was gorgeous decor, lovely speakers, delicious food & drinks, and positive vibes all around.
After almost 2 years of living in San Diego, I finally took a trip to visit the San Diego Botanic Garden. It was full of lush (very photogenic) plants, flowers, and ponds. I can't possibly explain how amazing this place was, so take a look for yourself! Scroll to the bottom for the best part of the gardens.
