If I wasn’t a PR Girl slash Author-In-The-Works slash blogger and photographer noob, my career would totally be in filmmaking and creating badass documentaries. But, lo and behold, I have very little patience (or skills to that matter) in that field of work. Similar to acting, because otherwise I could be a great actress too. BUT DREAMS ARE DREAMS ARE DREAMS.
Part of writing a book – or chasing your dreams – is finding your inspiration. One of mine comes in the shape of travel and I’m quite lucky that I get to do it as much as I do (and yes, you may have seen the new travel locator on the right —> right there!)
One of the most underrated cities I just went to is Scottsdale, Arizona for the perfect weekend getaway with my GFs! Who would have guessed but Scottsdale is pretty friggin’ amazing? Not to mention the city is SUPER trendy! It even had a lot of culture mixed with beautiful weather – at least in early May during the day. At night we might have ate outside in what felt like -45 degrees but I’m known to be semi-dramatic. Semi… There were also mountains which Texas girl here. I can appreciate slopes, oh, and cactuses. We dined at beyond delicious restaurants and experienced a really, truly fun night life scene which you wouldn’t guess but that about makes Scottsdale a little gem of a city hidden in the state.
A perfect Scottsdale trip isn’t complete without the best company a girl could ask for but a couple places that I loved include AZ88 (which came strongly recommended by locals and glad we went because it was so yummy! Try the Hells fries) as well as staying at the W which is right in the middle of all of the night life… which we found out the hard way when we got in an Uber and the guy literally was like it’s behind you.. So there’s that plus the pool party…. In summary, I would go again tomorrow for the spas and sunshine to do it all over again.
PS: Remember that thing I said about no skills in video-making. Ya, for the life of me I cannot figure out how to make the music work because it sounds fine in iMovie but when I upload it here, that’s another story…
