Beverly Hills Anniversary Trip

Cody and I were so excited to do a mini-getaway for our 5 year anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been 5 years! It seems like it’s been longer but shorter at the same time if that even makes sense, haha. The last 5 years have flown by but at the same time it feels like we’ve been together forever.

California is like a second home to us – we got married here and come down about once a month. We love it so much!

We literally laid in bed until like 11 o’clock one morning! We ordered breakfast in bed and just lounged. It’s seriously so nice having a little time just me and him to just do nothing!

beverly wilshire hotel room

My favorite thing to do when I first get into a hotel is get in the hotel robes! I don’t know where the tradition came from but it’s always one of the first things I do and I end up lounging for as long as I can get away with it.

We stayed at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons and their views from their rooms are SO pretty! For sure get the room with a balcony! We would sit out in the morning on their lounge chairs and just watch the hustle and bustle of the city. Sunsets are also so good!

It was in the 80’s the whole time we were there, so we were able to lay out by the pool, get some pina coladas and a mini tan.

Cody is really artistic and doesn’t give himself much credit! He was like look how cool those palm trees look against the stairwell get a pic and of course it ends up being one of my favorites 🙂

The hotel is literally right on Rodeo Drive, so you can walk out your door and go shopping! I always get a memento from each of our special vacations. Sometimes half the fun is exploring and shopping for just the right souvenir, right? 🙂 I got some super cute Gucci sneakers I had been looking for for awhile so I was excited to find them! They’ll make an appearance soon so stay tuned! 🙂

LA car rides

The Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons went above and beyond on taking care of everything so we didn’t have to stress about planning much on the trip. We told the concierge it was our anniversary and they put together a whole date night for us right down to every detail and it turned out to be such an unforgettable night! It was so cool because it was stuff we wouldn’t have thought to do! They set us up with a car, one of Cody’s weaknesses, he loves cars! It was a brand new Benz convertible with all the bells and whistles. I swear it was like having a whole computer in the car with as many gadgets as it had.

They made us reservations at one of Malibu’s hotspots – Nobu. When we got there Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were sitting there eating dinner with their family. Crazy! A private shuttle then picked us up and took us for the grand finale a private wine tasting at Malibu Rocky Oaks. It was seriously one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been!

The night at Malibu Rocky Oaks was seriously unforgettable. The vineyard is literally built into the top of the mountain so it has the most amazing views. It was built before they had all the codes and regulations and now no one is allowed to build on a peak like this estate, so it will always have that 360° view of Malibu. I’m also kind of obsessed with Keeping Up With the Kardashians (guilty pleasure) and they told us they have gone up there a couple times for some episodes so I was kind of fan-girling out haha.

Random fact about Cody: he doesn’t drink, and he still thought it was one of the coolest places he has ever been. So even if your not a big wine person it’s still such an amazing experience. Honestly I can’t say enough about it!  It was magic. It was right at sunset and it was hands down the prettiest sunset I have ever seen. Every time I thought the colors couldn’t get any more amazing, they got deeper and more vibrant. It was one of the views you’ll never forget that you can never quite capture exactly in pictures or descriptions. So I’ll start rambling 😉

We seriously had the most amazing time! It was the perfect balance of downtime and exploring the city and new sights. What are some of your favorite spots around Beverly Hills?

Happy Monday guys! It’s always a 50/50 chance you will see me in sneakers and joggers or heels for a flight. (It usually depends on how late I’m running for the airport haha.) If I have work meetings for the day or no time to hit the hotel to change for the day, it’s usually the latter.

I’m so excited to finally be able to wear jackets and sweaters now. Honestly even if it was 85° outside I would probably still wear them anyway 😉 but luckily the weather has dropped so much here in Utah it really feels like fall! This suede moto jacket was one of my favorite buys of the year so I had to add it to our ILY collection! It’s one of my favorites from our latest collection. The color and fit is so good and matches just about everything so you can pair it with jeans and tees for travel style or errands as with a pretty sweater dress or shirt dress for date night.

Love these cute patterned diapers!

Beckam became the sunscreen hoarder. He had to put it on everyone’s face and would carry the sunscreen around in his little sand bucket and took it with him everywhere while we were at the beach lol.

kids speedo

Dying over his mini speedo!! He still has a little baby fat on his legs (you can’t really tell in this pic, but it’s like the last bit of baby-ness left on him. I love how his little speedo still shows his cute little thighs!) They have so many cute patterns here. It’s actually a swim diaper but I just used it as a swimsuit.

They say there are no sharks in Greece so this was the most swimming I’ve done in anything other than a swimming pool in maybe 5 years! I know it’s so pathetic haha but it was so fun remembering what it’s like to be back at that age when you don’t think twice about the dangers.

The kids could seriously live in the water! It’s always a fight when it’s time to leave – we hear: “Just 5 more minutes! Just 5 more!”

Mykonos was the third stop on our family trip this summer. I didn’t know much about it before we got there. It was actually Cody’s pick – I chose Santorini and I was sure there was nothing that could beat it but I fell in love with Mykonos even more! Our family is all about the beach and the Santorini beaches were all pretty rocky which made for a great view but Mykonos actually had sand so it made for a good beach day.

Our favorite beaches were Super Paradise and Pink Beach (although Cody still swears nothing compares to the beaches in Hawaii ;). They are actually both in the same cove but are considered two separate beaches. Paraga Beach was another good one. They had cheap massages on the beach and amazing fresh fruit!

As much time as we spent outside and at the beach, sunscreen was a daily staple. I always wish I had taken better care of my skin when I was younger – take it from me, never skip the SPF! I love the Honest sunscreen stick (so did B – he would not put it down lol). It’s so easy to carry around (and never any mess) and makes applying sunblock on the kids so easy. It doesn’t get in their eyes when we apply it on their face so it’s easier to make sure they get full coverage without worrying about getting it in their eyes.

You guys know what a big fan I am of Jessica and the Honest brand. We have some exciting projects coming up! But today I am teaming up with them to giveaway a sunscreen bundle and 30% off your first month’s essentials bundle with code: HF30. They seriously have the cutest diapers ever and so many other things we use daily at our home.
